    The Cooks Companion and bits and pieces out of a few Jamie Oliver books. I use google searches (usually resulting in taste.com) the most though.

    The Cook's Companion by Stephanie Alexander, it is my go to book.

    Love Greg Malouf's books on Middle Eastern cooking,

    and The Silver Spoon, the bible of Italian cooking.

    But generally I use my books as inspiration, and source my day to day recipes online.

    I have shelves of cookbooks, but like many, tend to use the interwebs now instead. Probably The Cook's Companion is one of the few I still use regularly - it's a bit of a bible really But taste.com.au is pretty much my "cookbook" these days. Although I did get "Heston Blumenthal at Home" recently, and while I've only cooked 1 thing from it so far, I'm reading and rereading it!

    I love reading cookbooks but often forget to actually use them for cooking. I mostly use recipes that I have cut out and saved from magazines such as 'Super Food Ideas' and 'Recipes +'

    Have you done the poached egg from Heston? And the cheese sauce with no flour/roux??
