In association with The Works
When The Works asked me to come up with a wish list of cookery books I jumped at the chance. I’m a big fan of The Works as I never pay full price for anything if I can help it. Over the years I have missed out on new releases of cookery books from some of my favourite cooks so here I make up for lost time. There have also been some fabulous new cooks on the block so you’ll find these here too.
Everyday Super Food – Jamie Oliver £22.99 rrp £26
This was on my mum’s wishlist last Christmas so when I bought it I had a good flick through and there were many dishes which caught my eye which I wanted to make.
Delia’s Vegetarian Collection £14.99 rrp £17.50
Delia is one of all time food heroes and as I have a big soft spot for vegetarian food this book really appeals to me. It would also please my daughter who is very fussy when it comes to eating meat!
Recipes from a Normal Mum – Holly Bell £16.99 rrp £20
Finalist of The Great British Bake Off, I have had the pleasure of re-creating a couple of Holly’s recipes on my blog which were fab so I would love this book which is full of her simple, innovative and economical recipes. A woman after my own heart!
Nigel Slater – Real Food £16.99 rrp £20
One of my favourite home cooks and all round nice guy, Nigel like me started his love of food in his Home Economics class at school and quickly discovered that a life in catering was not for him! Having has a stint in catering in my twenties I don’t blame him. This classic has been reissued and as I missed out on it the first time around I’d love this book.
Simply Nigella – Feel Good Food £22.99 rrp £26
Nigella makes delicious food seem so effortless. When I first got married I cooked many dishes from her books and did think I was a bit of a “Domestic Goddess” at the time! I like the sound of the “quick and calm suppers” plus the “stress free catering for a crowd” in this book! I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve complimented the host of a party about their dish only to be told me it’s one of Nigella’s!
John Whaite Bakes – Recipes for Every Day and Every Mood £16.99 rrp £20
I met John (Great British Bake Off winner) at the Woking Food Festival last year and watched him cook up a storm in the demo kitchen. His passion for food and his humour were infectious so I’m sure this first book from him would be a real treat!
The Very Best Baking Book for Children – Abigail Wheatley £15.99 rrp £17.99
My daughter absolutely loves baking and finds it a great way to unwind. She’s quite capable of baking on her own now but I do love helping her so this book would be ideal for us to have some quality time in the kitchen together!
The Student Cookbook £7 rrp £10
With a son possibly about to venture off to university next year I would love to give this book to him and get him practising before he leaves. Currently he makes a mean cheese toastie and has become king of the BBQ but his repertoire needs adding to so The Student Cookbook sounds just the ticket
I do hope you’ve enjoyed reading my cookery book wish list. Which cookery books are on your wish list?
