Despite the amount of beautiful cookbooks on the market, there are few that are actually worth owning. Before a new cookbook is added to my shelves, it has to tick a few but essential boxes. It must be filled with recipes I can't wait to make, ones I haven't tried before or don't already have another version of, it must have good quality photographs of the dishes and it must be overall inspiring, beautiful and delicious.
Knowing how difficult it can be to discover books worth owning, today I want to share with you the cookbooks that make my heart sing and that form a solid part of my meal repertoire.
As I turned the pages of this book I fell more and more in love with it. There are so many recipes in here I am bursting to make! Some are designed for winter so I will have to wait to try them, but there is plenty to cook before then. Aside from the recipes, it's such an inspiring book that makes me feel that any little step towards growing, producing or baking even a morsel of food is such an achievement and is making a difference.
