Your Top Ten Go To Cookery Books

We asked you on our Social Networking pages which was your GoTo Cookery or Recipe book. It seems that we rarely bother with a book any more and most of us turn to the internet when looking for an elusive recipe. Despite this we have a list of ten books that still have a home in our modern day kitchens.

Betty Crocker is top of our list; Betty’s packet mixes have been making an appearance in British supermarkets and specialist shops but she is a well known and much loved favourite for all our American followers.

The self titled Fannie Farmer Cookbook is in third place; I just love it for the name.

The next five books, in the order of nomination are:

The Primrose Bakery Book ~ Martha Swift
How to Cook Everything ~ Mark Bittman
Food to Die For ~ Patricia Cornwell
Jamie’s 15-Minute Meals ~ Jamie Oliver
Delia’s Complete Cookery Course ~ Delia Smith

I think it’s such a shame that Kitchen Cookery books seem to be becoming a thing of the past; I love mine and am always leafing through them for something new to try out on my poor unsuspecting victi… umm family.
I will definitely be looking out for the Patricia Cornwell  book Food to Die For. That sounds fascinating!
