I'm gradually becoming more and more of a home chef but I can't seem to find the kind of cookbook I would like..
I like to cook creatively and I hardly ever follow recipes exactly. Usually I use a recipe to some extent but mostly as a general starting point and I add my own touches to the recipe. But I can almost never just sit there and suddenly think of a good idea for an interesting dish. I need some kind of a starting inspiration.
Are there any books you could recommend that could give some basic ideas for exciting dishes don't necessarily give exact recipes?
