Having filled up yet another bookshelf I counted how many culinary books I own and the number is now over 400. At least half are not cookbooks but reference and/or techniques and/or encyclopedic books, dictionaries, food writing, and so on. I pore over my books often and am extremely particular with the books I purchase. So far there are about 5 that I would be willing to part with.
In my opinion there is no such thing as owning too many cookery books. There is always something new that I need to get my hands on.
Are you a cookery book addict?
