    Hey,

    I love cooking and I'm looking for recommendations for recipe/cook books.
    I'm looking to buy books that have:
    - British food
    - fusion food
    - soups/stews
    - desserts (particularly sponges)

    If you have a favourite recipe you want to share I am interested!

    Gourmet is extremely good as a general one. The Science of Cooking is another.

    I like "Save with Jamie" by Jamie Oliver. BBC Good Food also do some handy cook books too. They do a range depending on what you're looking for: i.e. quick meals etc

    I don't feel that cook books are that useful anymore because you can find many recipes online. Have you tried looking online? Otherwise, I also like to go to my local book shop and just look around the cooking section and flip through the books.

    I just look for recipes online these days, BBC good food is a pretty good site and there's loads on Jamie Oliver's site too.

    There is tonnes online... I love BBC Good Food!

    But, for me, there's not much quite like flicking through a physical cookbook and balancing it precariously somewhere in your kitchen, with that obligatory blotch or spatter of sauce on a page...

    Same, but I wouldn't necessarily go buy one since I know I won't make all the recipes in it, so sometimes it's sorta a waste to buy it.
