I admit to having a particular weakness for books. Mostly decorating and gardening books. These two categories feature from time to time here in my blog. Cookbooks, though, not quite as often. But I do love them, all the same. Especially those with delicious photos and an enticing layout. I have been known to "read" cookbooks in bed ;-)
My latest cookbook love is Avoca's 3rd cookbook. Now I do love anything and everything "Avoca", and have enjoyed memorable lunches at various Avoca Cafes (The Fern House Cafe at Avoca Kilmacanogue, the cafe at Powerscourt House and the cafe at Mount Usher Gardens. Entry from my visit to the gardens here).
So "reading" the Avoca cookbook is a joy indeed, and my mouth waters just looking at the lovely pages in the book. I do love cooking (and, by the way, while doing so I do love using these fab spatulas I got for Christmas...)
Another cookbook love of mine is the books by Tessa Kiros. Especially the "Falling Cloudberries - A World of Family Recipes". Tessa´s mother is Finnish, and I do recognise many of the recipes in this book from my own childhood in Finland.
And now time for confessions... as much as I love "reading" cookbooks, it is actually all I tend to do. Read them. For some reason I seldom use any of the recipes in them. But I do get inspired by just looking at them. Am I the odd one here...? Can you relate at all...? "Read" any good cookbooks lately...?
