Not only are the recipes from this book delicious, but I also love the design with colourful illustrations I’d happily frame. I’ve only just begun to dip into it, but so far the Quick Coconut Dal with tomato sambol has become a staple. [Fera]
I’m a big fan of Anna Jones, particularly because of her emphasis on cooking with the seasons. This book of hers is a good mix of investment cooking (tailored to weekends) and quicker midweek meals, creating recipes for whatever mood you are in. [Alex]
I got given this book as a gift a few years ago. I have to say I’ve hardly cooked anything from it, but I love reading the Sheffield stories. One for the Sheffield food lover’s book-shelf. [Paul]
Being totally honest, I never read cookbooks. But I did receive this one as a gift in the distant past and have dipped into the New York-style pizza dough recipe a few times, as made famous from Saturday Night Fever which I’ve never seen. [Liam]
I’m a big fan of Thug Kitchen (now known as Bad Manners). It’s full of really interesting and delicious recipes, so delicious that I didn’t even realise it was a vegan cookbook for quite some time! There’s no overly-pretentious bull-s**t and loads of swears which keeps me chuckling in the kitchen. They also have a great website www.badmanners.com. [Alan]
This is our favourite cookbook. The kind that has stained pages and notes added to the recipes to tweak proportions. [Jess]
How can oneself pick a favourite cookbook? There are so many amazing cookbooks out there, I love them and they fill a couple of shelves in my kitchen.
But if I had to pick one, I would pick the Zero Waste cookbook as this one has been an eye-opener! As a family we try to reduce our waste as much as possible and so learning how to cook without waste has been a great help. The cheese scraps soufflés are a revelation! [Julie]
This book is an absolute go-to in my household, our favourites being the ‘Sticky Shitake Mushrooms,’ and the ‘Sweet & Sour Tofu’ which I had for lunch today!
There’s such a huge variety of recipes in this book and they’re so easy to follow. I would 10/10 recommend to a friend! [Mo]
From the back cover: “This book has three main morals…1. Salt your pasta water. 2. If in doubt, butter. 3. Keep going.
It’s not so much a book of recipes as it is a story read from cover to cover, that tells you some tasty ways to cook food along the way. [Claire]
