How many recipes should you like to make a cookbook worth it?
I just returned from a wonderful culinary trip to Morocco. Since I returned I've been on a total Moroccan cooking extravaganza so that I can practice the techniques I learned before I loose them in the sieve that is my head.
I have been enticed buy a few of the more popular authors out there offering this type of cuisine. Many of them, however, have some recipes that I will probably never attempt either because of the amount of or particular ingredients required or quantity of steps involved or even just the general appeal.
I had previously been on a self-imposed restriction from purchasing new cookbooks so I my question is..............
How many recipes (or what percentage of the book) have to look like you will actually try before you bite the bullet and purchase a hard copy of a cookbook?
