I've been tagged by Colin, for this cookbook meme that I have seen endlessly on many many foodblogs. I had secretly hoped I would not be tagged because as you'll read on to find out, I do not have much cookbooks to speak of.
1) Total number of cookbooks I've owned:
There are technically 11 cookbooks sitting out of sight, in the top drawer of the kitchen cabinet. I used "technically" because I did not buy any of them except for 1. I use a few quite regularly, particularly the ones requiring baking. But otherwise, I really just rely on the good old internet and Google for tried & tested recipes.
2) Last cookbook I bought:
It is a book on baking bread, by a local chef. Can't remember the exact title but it's cheap and it has nice pictures.
3) Last food book I read:
I am concurrently reading Kitchen Confidential and Fast Food Nation. But really, Kitchen Confidential is going much faster.
4) Five cookbooks that mean a lot to me:
None really. I use all the ones I have as per relevant to my needs. If I really have to make a few choices, perhaps the one on "Cookies, teacakes and muffins", "Cakes" and "Chocolate" would be the ones I use most frequently.
5. Which 5 people would you like to see fill this out in their blog?
You mean there are still untagged bloggers out there???
