Another Lovely Cookbook

Okay…I have a thing for books…especially cookbooks…even more especially BEAUTIFUL cookbooks. This is a gem I tell you!
eggs
You might wonder how one could devote 300 or so pages to eggs. Well Chef Michael Roux had no difficulties whatsoever. And photographer Martin Brigdale does every recipe justice. It is absolutely gorgeous! From egg basics to so many amazing recipes…this book is a must have. You will not be sorry you bought this book!

I admit I have always had a special place on my “these are a few of my favorite things” list, for eggs. I love the colors, the texture, the unlimited use for the egg.

Cookbook Treasures

I ordered two cookbooks on the recommendation of Cherry over at Cherry’s English Kitchen. They are two of the most beautiful books I have ever put my hands on.

I dont know what I expected. They came so highly recommended. And it took FOREVER it seemed for them to arrive. I ordered them through amazon.uk. But they were SO worth the wait. The paper is amazing. The photos are stunning. The recipes are so do-able. I love a pretty book but for it to be pretty (beautiful actually) and useful…well it is more than can be hoped for. Tessa Kiros is the author of these two treasures (she has more…they are on my list). She has lead a most interesting life and one I might be jealous of if my life wasnt so near perfect.

I will certainly be sharing more about these books as I read them…word for word.
