Favourite Cookbooks



I’m the type of person that as soon as I enter a bookstore I head straight for the cookbook section, I can spend a fair bit of time exploring all the latest cookbooks. I have a modest library given my preference in diet, and I have yet to trial most of the dishes (who has!) not to mention the burgeoning collection of recipes that I have collected over the years. Will I ever have enough time… often I find myself going back to the same recipes that give me the greatest pleasures. And it’s these books that I have listed below, the ones that I refer to time and time again. They are not specifically vegan but do contain a number of recipes that will satisfy the fussiest vegetarian.
