On the last day of July, Dom is going to do a round up of this month's Random Recipes and it is going to be a nosey-parker's dream!
Randomly enough, he has asked us all to post photographs of our cookbook collections and already I have been able to snoop into lots of lovely houses in the posts already up. I think there is really something wonderful about seeing how other people arrange their homes, isn't there?
So, here are my photos.
The top photo is in my kitchen. Those are the books that are out in the kitchen because I have been using them ar plan to in the next week. My Kenwood Chef used to fill that space under the cupboards but, as you can see, it has now been crowded into a tiny area.
Now actually when I went to take photos of my cookbooks, I found that those from the top photo were actually being used to help with robot manufacture. Here is the photo with Snappy the robot.
The majority of my cookbooks live in the book shelf in the garage. Not the most idyllic of places but it is handy for the kitchen.
It is a hugely reduced collection as it was pared down before we moved house just over a year ago. Previously the whole bookshelf would have been filled. I do have loads of food magazines and Guardian Weekend cuttings all over the house and I often get cookbooks from our local library. I LOVE my library service. I reserve a book online (and have yet to find a book they don't have), it gets delivered to my local library, they text me when it is ready to collect (usually 2-3 days later) and there is no charge at all for this amazing service. I am just away to order HFW's Everyday Veg book so I expect I'll get it very soon.
Thanks Dom for an easy and fun challenge this month.
