    Smile Which of your cookbooks get used most?

    I don't have loads of cookbooks (did a cull recently and haven't bought any new ones lately), but there are a few that I use over and over:

    1: Every Day in the Kitchen, by Allan Campion and Michelle Curtis
    2: The Cook's Companion, by Stephanie Alexander
    3: Baby and Toddler Meal Planner, by Annabel Karmel
    4: taste.com.au.....I am constantly using this website too, I love it!

    Number 1 I have used so much that the book is in tatters and I'm seriously considering buying a new one online! I constantly refer to Stephanie's book, it's great when you have an ingredient and you want ideas on what to use it for, and I just love number 3, my kids love all the things I cook from it so it's been great ever since DS was a baby.

    I'd be interested to hear what cookbooks others love, so feel free to share them!

    I honestly can't remember the last time I used a cookbook. I tend to go online. In order of usage it goes

    Taste.com.au
    Bestrecipes.com.au
    Lifestylefood.com.au
    Google 'insert name of food' lol

    Oh I tell a lie ... I have been looking at the magazine 'clean eating' which has recipes in it

    I don't use cook books too often, but the one that I use most is Donna Hay Modern Classics 2 which is great for sweets and it has the best sweet pastry recipe, and the most amazing chocolate tart.

    • Google "what I want to cook thermomix".
    • EDC cookbook.
    • Google- "what I want to cook".
    I hardly use cookbooks these days, I donated a lot of them to the local op shop because they were just collecting dust. I have kept a couple of classics (1970's Margaret Fulton, Luke Nguyen, my tafe text, Cookery the Australian way and some of my preserving/pickling ones) but that's about it.

    I'm a cook book junkie I'm afraid, way too many of them, even though as OP said - Taste.com.au is what I use most. I LOVE it!
