Last month (that’s the month that ended yesterday), I enjoyed reading Emma’s daily ‘Book Challenge’ posts over at bluchickenninja. This girl is good at picking good books – and steering us all clear of ones she didn’t find so good. I’ve read a couple of her recommended books and will be coming back for more.
So it got me thinking.
While I wouldn’t be reading enough novels to be all that discerning in my recommendations, I do know my cookbooks!
At least I know which ones on my shelf contain recipes that work – consistently.
So I thought I would do a little series of cookbook recommendations over the next little while. Most of my cooking adventures are currently in the realm of Marcella’s ‘Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking’ (her Pan-Roasted Lamb with Juniper Berries is simmering away as I type). However, I have been known to dip into some other books – I’ve even dived in and swum around for a year or so in one or two.
So here is my first recommendation:
Book: ‘The Hairy Dieters’ by Dave Myers and Si King.
Contains: 77 recipes
I’ve Cooked: 17 recipes so far (all have cooked well and tasted good)
Favourites: ‘Chicken Korma’ (in the ‘Fakeaways’ chapter) and ‘Salmon with Chilli Ginger Sauce’
The List So Far:
