I was going to talk about my collection of cookbooks today but I just got back into town Thursday night and today (Friday) wasn't a day for digging into my bookcases so instead I'm going to talk about my Cookbook Wishlist. I love cookbooks and have an easier time buying them than other genres because cookbooks don't apply to my rather massive TBR. Plus flipping through a cookbook while watching a show off the Tivo is one of my favorite ways to spend an evening. Because that's the kind of party girl I am. So here's my current wishlist and if you have any opinion on them please tell me so I can hit Order on my Amazon cart or delete them out:
2. Mary Berry's Baking Bible by Mary Berry - I was addicted to The Great British Bake Off that was on PBS recently and loved Mary Berry. It doesn't hurt that her scones looked amazing.
3. Paul Hollywood's British Baking by Paul Hollywood - Basically ditto to the above.
4. The Pollan Family Table by Corky Pollan, Tracy Pollan and Lori Pollan- I'm cheating a bit on this one because I actually have it from the library right now but it's definitely one I want to own. Especially if all the recipes are half as good as the Bistro Burgers with Caramelized Onions we had had for dinner tonight!
6. Back in the Day Bakery: Made with Love by Cheryl Day - I have their first book and love it even though really all I make regularly are their chocolate chip cookies which are my favorite of the 2 dozen or so recipes I've tried. (Have I mentioned my family is a bit boring when it comes to sweets?)
7. Good Food, Good Life by Curtis Stone - Between his appearances on The Chew and All Star Academy Curtis Stone is starting to replace Bobby Flay as my chef crush. Plus this book just sounds yummy!
8. Kevin Dundon's Modern Irish Food by Kevin Dundon- My husband and I both have a lot of Irish in us so periodically I try and experiment with Irish recipes. I like the idea of these being modern as so many that I've found are a bit on the heavy side.
9. The Complete Cook's Country TV Cookbook - This is from the maker's of Cook's Illustrated but tends to be a little less complicated. I love Cook's Illustrated and my go-to meatloaf recipe is from them but I used to have a subscription to Cook's Country and would love to try out this book.
10. LudoBites by Ludo Lefebvre - My husband and I watch The Taste together and I enjoy Ludo's antics almost as much as I love listening to Nigella Lawson talk. I'm dying to try out his food!
So what do you think? See any I must get or any that I should avoid at all costs?
