Back to School Book Week: My Favourite Cook Books

Cook books! I have an overflowing small book shelf in the corner of my kitchen full of cook books. Some I have bought, many are from op shops, and some borrowed from the library. I menu plan monthly, so mostly they come out once a month for brainstorming and planning, a process that takes an hour or more and uses up all of the kitchen table. A few times a week, my cook books are used for impromptu baking.

My current favourite is Martha Goes Green, a vegetarian cook book that I have raved about before on this blog. Although we are not vegetarian, we try to eat vegetarian meals at least twice a week, both to reduce our eco footprint and for a break from the expense of meat meals.

Other firm favourites are:

– anything by Bill Granger;

CWA Country Classics;

Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day;

Sophie Gray’s books, of which I have Enjoy, Everyday Smart Food for the Family, and More Stunning Food for Small Change.

What’s your favourite cook book? I’d love to hear.
