Those Wonderful Cookbooks! #fbm17

One of my favorites: Feel Good Kitchen (Stirring Slowly) by Georgina Hayden. All pics by Franzi.

Every year when I am at the Frankfurt Book Fair I bring home a lot of new book wishes – and most of them are always cookbooks. Here are some of my favorites I found this year. Lucky me, X-Mas is not too soon now ;).

Have a wonderful (and tasty) week!

The cookbook that really convinced me on a second glance: Vietnamese Cuisine from Elizabeth Street Cafe.

Peek inside:The recipes are French-inspired and look really fancy and delicious!

The Great Dixter Cookbook – Recipes from an English Garden by Aaron Bertelsen features seasonal recipes.

Das Beste vom Wochenmarkt by Elisabeth Raether (available only in German: “The Best from the Farmers Market”) – A collection of the fresh and seasonal recipes regularly featured in the German ZEITmagazin.

Those Wonderful Cookbooks! #fbm16

cooking6Love at first sight: Raw by Icelandic chef Solla Eiriksdottir. All pics by Franzi, made on the #fbm16.

Cookbooks are a big passion of mine. Maybe I shouldn’t wonder why my notebook is now full of new cookbook titles after the Frankfurt book fair #fbm16. Here are (only) twelve of my favorites I found this year – most of them were published in 2016, some re-published and some a bit older :).

Enjoy cooking (& reading)!

Two Cookbooks from the Frankfurt Book Fair!

Here are two cookbooks I found on the Frankfurt Book Fair 2015. I already possess a not quite small collection of cookbooks, but I am always looking out for new recipe ideas. These two books looked pretty inspirational.

I wish you a wonderful weekend. Cook something spectacular :)!
Frankfurt3The Silver Spoon Quick and Easy Italian Recipes

I browsed trough this book and instantly felt the need to cook. The recipes looked delicious, more or less easy to prepare and (most important) Italian! A must-have that’s already on my book wish list.

Frankfurt5From my kitchen to yours: My early journey by Sandra Djohan

This cookbook based on the life of Indonesian chef Sandra Djohan presents her go-to recipes combined with great photos. It doesn’t seem to be released yet, but since I already held it in my hands at the book fair and I also saw that it has already an ISBN number, it couldn’t take this long anymore.

Cookbook Love!

Cook BooksPic by Franzi. Just a small collection of my cookbooks.

I planned to share a goat cheese tart recipe with you today. Unfortunately it’s now near midnight, the recipe one of the more complicated ones and I don’t have the tools to edit the picture the right way on this PC. So, all I have to give you at the moment is a shot of my current cookbook collection. Okay, those are not all – I hide some more under my oven and in my mother’s house :D. What can I say? I am just in love with cookbooks – especially with old ones that tell me how our grandmas would have prepared a meal.

So, tell me: What is your favorite cookbook at the moment?
