Strangely, I don't have any cookbooks in the kitchen, although on the beams dividing the kitchen and the sitting room are a couple of shelves full, and to the right of those, another three shelves full, although these aren't quite so tidy... Both these sets of shelves "should" be sorted by author or cookery type, baking, region etc. Bottom right of the second picture are Mr Joe's tiny collection.
I then have some recent purchases which haven't found a home yet as all the shelves are full. And some thought that limited shelf space would curtail my habit!
By the bed there are some of my Sunday morning lie-in reads.
In my little studio I have my vintage collection which I find fascinating to read through even if some of them are a little battered;
and my Where Women Cook magazines which are read slowly with a cup of tea and biscuits and then neatly put on my desk for future reference, with more tea and biscuits.
Finally, there are the bakery books which were my Grandad's (who sadly I never met). He was a master baker. They include all sorts of information on running a bakery as well as recipes from the era. I'm working on scaling the quantities of some of the recipes down so I can give them a try.
So there you have it - My name's Cat and clearly I'm a bit of a cookbook addict. Thank you Dom for the challenge.
