The 6 Cookbooks I can't Live Without

Three colour co-ordinated bookshelves in my kitchen are dedicated to cookbooks.

While I love them all, some of them have defiantly been out and used more than others .

These are the top 6 cookbooks I really rate and cook from regularly.

  1. One Pot, Pan Planet by Anna Jones.

While a relatively new edition to my collection, this book has already seen a lot of action. The book is all veggie, but don't be put off you won't be missing the meat as the recipes are full of flavour with a mindful and educative tone towards the power of plant proteins.

2. River Cottage Every Day by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

A must for those who love to cook with a diverse range of ingredients, I love this book as it really champions diversity. The roast chicken with pearl barley stuffing is a staple dish that I go back to again and again.

3. Eat Beautiful by Wendy Rowe

A makeup artist who understands the link between diet and our largest organ - the skin, is a must read for anyone who wants to understand and appreciate the link between diet and aging well. I love the way this books is alphabetised in foods!

4. Eat, Nourish Glow by Amelia Freer

The reason why I became a nutritionist is because I read this book! This is a cookbook but also a bible for nutrition that I have given as gifts and bought for loved ones over many years!

5. Delia Smith's Complete Cookery Course

A classic cook book and one I will return to again and again especially when I need to check a kitchen classic recipe.

6. Ching's Chinese Food in Minutes by Ching-He Huang

I love East-Asian food and this cookbook has been used whenever I need something spicy and fragrant. The juicy chilli chicken recipe with cashews is delicious and a firm favourite. The recipes are timeless and so quick to make!

Cookbooks really do play a pivotal role in culinary exploration, offering a treasure trove of meticulously curated recipes and expert guidance, if you haven't cooked from a cookbook lately why not take one out and find a few new recipes to try!
