What’s in my cookbook library?

Collecting cookbooks is an obsession for many and, as a food blogger of a certain age – before the days of searching online for every recipe and technique known – I have a few. Rather than bore you with a long list, though, I photographed my cookbook shelves. I do use the Internet a lot to research ingredients- only today I found out about cricket flour, and yes, it IS made from ground crickets- yep, the bugs. Call me old fashioned but I think I’ll pass on the amazing claims of high protein and low carb, and just substitute spelt!

I do cull my books from time to time even though I get rid of fewer than I need to. It’s a bit like the wardrobe cull where you set out with good intentions but you rediscover old favourites and can’t bear to part with them.

I’d love to hear about your favourite book and your solution to bulging cook book shelves 🙂

      It is a bit time consuming and hard to narrow down to a recipe or two. Great fun to revisit though.
