Things I’m loving this week…cookbooks!


One of my favourite things to do is dive deep into reading cookbooks – I love them. They fill me with inspiration and I can spend hours flicking through the pages. I’ve always loved looking through cookbooks and especially now as the photography is just so beautiful.


There are so many cookbooks available and I love exploring new ones hitting the shelves. Lots of food blogs have translated to cookbooks, which I think is incredible. I love having something tangible to look through sometimes, so you can fold down the page and have a look through.


So today I’m showing you some of my favourite cookbooks…


1. Sirocco, Sabrina Ghayour – £6.99


This is the second cookbook by Sabrina Ghayour. I loved Persiana and this is no disappointment. The flavours are incredible and really exciting. I love mixing up Middle- Eastern flavours.


2. Good & Simple , Hemsley + Hemsley- £12.99

Hemsley & Hemsley

The Hemsley sisters have created another beautiful book full of fun, exciting and healthy recipes. They’re so great at making your home comforts healthy and the ideas are inspiring.


3. Ceviche, Martin Morales – £20.40


This book comes from the restaurant of the same name. I love going there, the atmosphere is great, and you’ll have a lot of fun and enjoy some tasty dishes.

4. At home in the whole food kitchen, Amy Chaplin – £19.99

This is a gorgeous book, which includes over 150 recipes, featuring many that are vegan and gluten free. The book is split into two parts, the first part explores the pantry and part two celebrates each season with recipes that show off local produce.


5. A Modern way to cook, Anna Jones – £9.99

This book is totally beautiful; Sarah focuses on the seasons and produces beautiful photographs of food with beautiful flavours too. The desserts look sumptuous and there are lots of recipes to dive into.


7. Nopi, Yotam Ottolenghi, £13.00


You can’t really go wrong with an Ottolenghi cookbook. Nopi is slightly different to previous Ottolenghi cookbooks as features recipes from the Soho restaurant of the same name. It gives you the chance to make restaurant quality food at home. The recipes are more challenging but great if you want to impress your friends.
