Cook Books

A bit of a fetish of mine - I have a collection that runs in to 500 plus - and still going!
Many are collectables and some quite rare.

In the meantime, which is your favourite cook book, or who is your favourite food writer?

Fabulous reprint of her 80’s classic. A bible for vegetarians

Must go and hunt it out or if not borrow my mum’s as I know she has one.
Good one!
Might be an idea to put a link up?
I usually do it by trawling the second hand sites on Amazon and Abe books.
So, here it is
