I’m a bit of a cookbook collector. I love the gorgeous food photography, the delicious descriptions, and the way the beautiful covers look stacked in the bookshelf. I quite enjoy sitting down and just flicking through the pictures, bookmarking recipes I’d like to try. The trouble is, often I try two or three from one book and ignore the others or I buy a book and don’t enjoy the recipes.
The blog “A Cook Book a Month” solves the problem for me. In fact, it’s also how I base what new cook books I’ll buy now – because there’s nothing worse than buying a beautiful book full of dud recipes.
“A Cook Book A Month” is written by three friends who try out different recipes from one cookbook each month. They then review that recipe and at the end of the month, they review the book to decide if it’s worth using again.
It’s written in a conversational tone with the odd comment from their children vouching for the recipes success or failure.
A great blog and a good way to choose the best cook books out there. I bought “Bill’s Every Day Asian” on their recommendation and everything I’ve made has been a success.
