I have a bit of a problem, I think I might be a cookbook hoarder! Yes, that’s right. I have a zillion cookbooks. The irony is that I use almost all of them! I love cookbooks for inspiration, for quick recipes and to think of new and creative ways to pair items together. Plus, with two 4 year olds I don’t get time to read novels anymore but I always have time to look through a cookbook.
This month DK Books is celebrating all that we love about food and drink with 30% of their Food and Drink Boutique
Here are some of the great titles you can find:
Chef Morimoto is one of my husband and I’s favourites as we have been fans of Iron Chef for many years. His new cookbook brings a wide variety of culinary skills and expertise together in a way that everyone can learn from him and try out some of his masterpieces like Daikon Fettuccini
Featuring 125 incredible and accessible recipes, including Tuna Pizza and mouth-watering Bouillabaisse to sinfully rich Chocolate Tart with White Chocolate Sorbet, this magnificently photographed cookbook includes amazing step by step photography as well as special features explaining Chef Morimoto’ cooking techniques and plating philosophies.
Our slow cooker is a kitchen saviour, especially on busy week nights. I love being able to pop in the ingredients in the morning and come home to dinner being ready. It’s like magic! The Slow Cook Book is filled with tons of recipes to make your slow cooker your kitchen hero!
