Listography - 5 favourite recipe books.

Listography time again (although I'm a little late; good job Kate leaves the linky open for more than a day!) and this week it's our top 5 favourite recipe books.

At number one, it has to be my well worn copy of Delia. It used to be my mum's and she gave to me when I left home. Growing up it was always the first book I turned too when I wanted to learn how to cook something. As you can see, it's been battered but all the important parts are still there!



Number two is one of Ant's favourites. Some of the recipes are quite old fashioned but the ones we try always work out well. The best Yorkshires I've ever had were made by Ant and he used the recipe from this book :)


I don't like how he treats people but there's something about Gordon that makes me keep watching his programmes! I loved this book when I bought it and haven't used nearly as much I should but the recipes I have done were absolutely delicious. I'm now going to have another look through it and make something different for next Sunday's lunch :)



You probably know that Nigella is my absolute favourite chef and I remember how excited I got when I ordered this book! I can't believe how long I've left it sitting on the shelf. Another one to have a look through later!



At number 5 it's a book given to me by my stepson, Jason. He's a chef and Nick signed this book for him. I have to admit I haven't tried the recipes yet but it's been very useful when I've needed help with techniques I'm not familiar with.


Thanks to Kate for another great listography :) Click the pic to see more top 5 recipe books.

  2. Not got any of those books, so there's a few more titles to covet! :-) Don't really know much about Nigella's cooking, will have to give her a look in as she sounds good, a few have mentioned her!

    1. She likes her comfort food, which is one of the reasons I like her recipes :)

  3. Another Nigella fan here. That is my favourite book of hers too. The Nick Nairn book looks very useful.

    1. I love watching her shows although I do get very jealous of her kitchen every time I watch!

  4. I really think I need to look at Nigella's Domestic Goddess...it can only help me!!! Love Gordon's Sunday Lunch...have done a couple of things from there, mainly the veggie bits!
