Culling Cookbooks: Do you ever regret it?

greedygirl | Aug 23, 201101:33 AM     29

Advice and encouragement needed here folks!

My shelves are overflowing, and if I'm honest I have some books that I'm not in love with, and rarely use. But for some reason I'm reluctant to part with them because I think that I might explore them again one day. Meanwhile, I order more books!

So, should I just go for it. There are only three after all at the moment! For info:

GLORIOUS FOODS OF GREECE by Diane Kochilas (not the best book on Greek cooking)
THE ART OF SIMPLE FOOD by Alice Waters (dull but thanks again to LLM for sending it to me!)
GOOSEBERRIES, WILD GARLIC AND ME by Dennis Cotter (this one is beautiful, but I'm never going to use it and I want his latest one instead, which is much more accessible).

Discuss!
