  1. At the moment my favourite cook book would have to be Jamie Olivers 30 minute meals. The food is quick, tasty and nutritious – as well as looking pretty professional! My friends have been impressed with my efforts anyway x

  2. my favourite cookbook is Yotam Ottolenghi’s Plenty – such vibrant colours, fresh and tasty vegetarian recipes – I cook from it nearly every week!

  3. following on bloglovin as katrinao
    my favourite cookbook just now is Ceviche: Peruvian Kitchen, working my way through it!!

  4. My favourite book is a very old one that my Nan has – it uses real old cool words like ‘dripping’ & sixpence etc. It’s a great basis for a good meal though; delicious food. I have no idea what it’s called though as it’s missing its cover :( Will have to research I think :)

  5. Plenty by Yotam Ottolenghi or Paradiso Seasons by Denis Cotter – I love them both so much I couldn’t choose between them! :)

  6. My fave well used cookbook is the 1000 Recipe Cookbook Edited by Isabelle Barrett and Jane Harrop. which I bought new in the early eighties. It includes basic recipes such as pastry and cake making, soups, sauces and recipes for any occasion, I would reccommend to any novice cook.

  7. My favorite is called Preserving, by Oded Schwartz. It’s full of the most amazing jams and jellies, chutneys and pickles……. everything I love.

  8. Lorraine Pascale’s Baking Made Easy – after watching the series on BBC, I fell in love with her easy recipes

  9. already subscribed. My fave is a cooking made easy one i also have one on myipad which shows the stages in pictures very handy.

  10. My favourite cook book is a little Be-Ro one. I’ve had it since the days when I used to cook with my granny so its got great sentimental value. Its just full of really basic recipes for cakes, biscuits and pastry but just nice simple stuff that was fantastic to make as a child and still handy to refer to now!

  11. My favourite cookbook is Red Velevet & Chocolate Heartache by Harry Eastwood. It is full of amazing cake recipes that are gluten free and very low in fat. Plus they taste incredible!

  12. I have hundreds of cook books (just look at my Eat Your Books profile, it’s obscene!)but the one I come back to over and over again is my ancient copy of The Pauper’s Cookbook by Jocasta Innes

  13. have tweeted and I’m sure that’s all I need to say but the comment box police say I haven’t written enough and need to write some more so here I am writing some more. I wonder how much more I need to write?

    While I’m here, what’ the point of the “confirm you are not a spammer” box? Spammers set up scripts to fill in forms, and they can easily include a term in the script to tick the box. An anti spam tool is only effective if it requires a unique individual response every time – nothing that can be automated can ever work, it just annoys the REAL people who comment

    Have I written enough yet?

  14. My favourite cookbook is definitely Rick Stein’s Mediterranean escapes! So engaging and full of a range of absolutely delicious recipes from savoury to sweet. Check it out!

  15. Delia Smith’s ‘One Is Fun’. I bought it when it came out and it’s still great – and the recipes can easily be adjusted for more than one!

  16. my fave cookbook is one for me and the kids, its just called fun things to make with the children. we`re doing ok with it so far, well we havent burnt the house down yet!! lol

  17. What a tricky question, I am going to have to cheat and mention a couple! I love Nigella Christmas, so this is most definitely my favourite at christmas time! But for everyday cooking I try to at least cook one thing from Jamie Olivers 30 minute meals every other week and I have not been disappointed by anything I have cooked! My husband loves Levi Roots Caribbean food made easy, and if I am honest everything I have cooked from here has been given the thumbs up by friends and family too, delicious!!xx

  18. i am following on facebook

    my favourite cookbook is one that was my great aunts and is so old it’s falling apart but i love it
    but i am excited about the book being published by a girl called jack that is due out feb 2014 and will be ordering that asap

  19. Ok so I’m not the worlds number 1 cook but I do have ‘my mothers’ Mrs Beetons cook book LOL (seeing as I’m 60 ) you can imagine It’s well thumbed…. this is still my fav cook book….

  20. My Favourite cookbook is one I received many years ago when I first got engaged, its full of Great British favourites which have been my Families favourites over the years, and now my Grandchildren have the pleasure of trying those recipes :D

  21. My favourite cookbook is Rasoi: New Indian Kitchen by Vineet Bhatia – some infallible fine dining indian dishes in it and I highly recommend the michelin starred restaurant the author runs (also called Rasoi) in London.

  22. My favourite cookbook at the moment is \’The Hairy Biker\’s Great Curries\’. Absolutely delicious and authentic recipes.Also followed you on facebook (oldstylesaver) and Twitter (@oldstylesaver) and Tweeted
