Hi, I am new to your site. And all I can say is WOW! Your writing is fabulous and I am blown away by your recipes. My site is so new (& tiny) you inspire, Thank-you!


I've seen Roux's pastry book and I wanted to bookmark every other recipe there :)
Same here - still ordering yet more cookbooks. Oh well, at least there's space on the shelves..

Great review Johanna. I am glad you included Greg Malouf's book. I have eaten at his restaurant in Australia, Moro (although I think it has now closed down although it may have since reopened in a different guise) and was blown away by his cooking and the amazing moorish and turkish flavours in his cooking.


I am going to try Micheal Roux's pastry book....thank you...i love to cook but generally live in fear of pastry so fingers crossed...
I love your's beautiful and yummy (like your writing and your recipes!)...

Hmm, I've been eyeing up Demetre's book. Also quite interested in Roux Jr's recent autobiography. I had a quick look at the Malouf book, but it looks v similar to their last effort, isn't it?


*seufz* Johanna, was tust du mir an, da muss ich doch gleich mal zu amazon rüberschauen....


Wonderful books - today I browsed through Michael Roux's pastry book.
Where I live, eating out isn't an option if you are fussy about food, and I agree, what would we do without our fabulous cookery books.

Interesting grouping here.
I am not familiar with these titles.
I just purchased my first Donna Hay book. She is not popular in the States, but I hear she is big time in Australia!


I am in complete agreement with you in this idea that buying cookbooks is really an *investment* and not just an expense!


Please post Thomas Keller's recipe for Classic Gratin Dauphinoise. Thank you.
