I love recipe books. There is something about the pictures of yummy food, and the exciting range of dishes that you can make which I just really like. However, I also very rarely use them. I could quite easily collect recipe books that I flick through, but never follow, usually because I haven’t planned ahead and don’t have the right ingredients or because I decide it will take too much time. But they are still great for inspiration, and you can quite easily adapt recipes to your taste. For example, recently my boyfriend bought a vegetarian recipe book only to decide that they would all be so much better if they contained meat… However as he isn’t a vegetarian he can add as much meat as he likes!
