Cookbook Recommendations?

Ask a Question

Hi guys, I was just wondering if anyone had any cookbook recommendations? I know there’s loads of recipes on the internet but I hate faffing with my phone when I’m cooking I can just keep my books open on my stand. I’m open to trying new types of cuisine :-) thanks x

I don't use cookbooks myself (I'm a Chef)

But my Mum loves Pinch of Nom by Kay Featherstone & Kate Allinson.

HannahSunderlan if you're thinking of getting a pinch of him book they're selling it for Β£5.99 in Aldi. I shared the like on here earlier this month but it's sold out online. Another great book is called a dairy dairy cookbook. My mums got this one but it has been updated since she got hers

I came here to recommend that lol. Had one for decades, it was falling apart but got a new one a few years ago. Good plain cooking and pleased to see it was updated without losing all my old favourites. At the risk of sounding sexist, all newly married brides should get this (but male cooks would like it too!)

Full title is The Dairy Book of Home Cookery. Which does not mean it is dairy recipes but can be ordered on the dairy diary website.

Lynibis I love this book and everytime I want a recipe or any info out of it I always say to my mum if I can borrow her yellow book. Shame I can't pinch it of her lol 🀣

Hi Lynibis Great recommendation πŸ‘

I just found it on Amazon at Β£11.99 with free delivery. (It's the same price at Dairy Diary, but they charge an extra Β£2.50 for delivery).

I've posted it here for everyone who wants one: https://www.latestdeals.co.uk/deals/dairy-book-home-cookery-50th-anniversary-ed-900-recipes-50-new-classics-amazon

Cookbooks are a waste of time - i get the regular DELICIOUS newsletter and subscribe to sites that make the food i like to make like Thai and Mexican - why buy a generic cookbook?>

You will probably never make a single recipe after your first go - my girlfriend has over 100 cookbooks and now just buys ready meals for herself as she is veggie and lactose intolerant etc so its more of a hassle for her to cook now even though i offer to cook for her every night she now prefers M&S Waitrose posh nosh lol

Target your time at what food you like to eat and then look for the websites that cater to your tastes.

Recipes are easily downloadable as a PDF and viewed on a tablet in the kitchen - paper books are so last year lol

😜

Youtube has some good chefs - i like the one pot chef and nickos kitchen but then i am a bit weird and like alternative stuff like coca cola ice cream, how to make corn dogs, how to make hostess twinkies etc
