I LOVE cookery books! I have lots, and buy more all the time.
I'm the only person I know that reads cookery books in bed
(Yes really - I have a pile of them by the bed at all times )
We're out here, believe me!

Looking at my vast collection of cookery books I've realised that the most stained ones are both old, Perfect Cooking by Marguerite Patten and The Pauper's Cookbook by Jocasta Innes. I've two copies of these, my own (bought new many moons ago) and my late Mother's copies. Hers are much used as well.

Re: Iconic Cookery Books

Thought this was worth a refresh for anybody with amazon vouchers to spend from Christmas...

A couple of my favourites that I bought this year....

Roast Chicken and Other Stories by Simon Hopkinson - small but perfectly formed

Fat Duck Cookbook by Heston Blumenthal - I will make NOTHING from it, but it's part autobiography, part cookbook and part science lesson and looks beautiful and only adds to the genius of the guy

McGee on Food and Cooking by Harold McGee - A food scientist and again, no recipes - but if you want to understand the science behind what you cook (eg why "sealing meat over a high heat" is a nonsense, why yoghurt splits when heated and how to get better chicken stock using powdered milk etc), its a great book. For serious food geeks only though


I am looking for a good Indian cookbook though - living so close to Agrawal, I want to extend my Indian repitoire in 2013 - any recommendations?

Re: Iconic Cookery Books

I have several favourite books, but when I buy something on special offer, and I want a surprise I turn to Delia Smith, http://www.deliaonline.com/

Why? Because there are always links to sauces etc. The recipes always work! There are tips along the way.

Indian: http://books.google.ch/books/about/I...AJ&redir_esc=y because real Indian food is not like UK Indian restaurant food, and this book has restaurant style recipes!
