12463 Cook books
Evening, lads.

What cook books do you recommend? I know you can get recipes online these days but it doesn't seem the same to me as having a proper cook book. I'm toying with getting Persiana by Sabrina Ghayour as I've heard Iranian cuisine isn't too dissimilar to Indian food, but with much less heat.

I say get it, experimentation is the spice of life. If you're looking for something to give you a grounding in a lot of different home grown dishes, then The Hairy Bikers do a cookbook I like.

All their recipes were on the BBC at one point, but no longer.

Most cookbooks end up taking space on a shelf with only a handful of recipies attempted and don't really teach the techniques and thinking behind creating tasty meals.

< This (maybe out of print) is the only book I've referred to more than a couple of times.

Go to the works and have a hunt around.
You'll probably find something along the lines of >>12465 this one that might be good.

You get far more use out of something like that, than some flashy celebrity cookbook, or one of the many books that are quite specific (i.e. desserts, or Italian, etc.)

If you want Persian food then try Ottolenghi's books.

Do not attempt before really understanding the principles of cooking as outlined in >>12465.

Disclaimer: I am by all the metrics mentioned above probably a shit cook, and only mention Ottolenghi because he got me to buy pomegranate molasses and put it on vanilla ice cream and for this I feel indebted to him.

>Ottolenghi

Why do something in 5 steps when you can do it in 45 instead?
