Some people love to buy shoes, others love clothes, cars, technology. Me? I love cookbooks. I love reading them, buying them, imagining myself cooking every recipe in them. There was a time when I bought about 4 a month. I buy hardcover, paperback, and even the magazine cookbooks. Good ones, I read like regular books. Cover to cover like a story.
Sometimes I buy ones that I find out later I really don’t like. Either I’ve tried a recipe or two that just didn’t do it for me or I don’t get a chance to try anything out for a while and when I do get the chance I’m not interested in it anymore.
Pictures are important. I find if I can replicate the picture then I’m happier with the recipe in general. And all 5 senses should be involved when cooking.
