I own many cookbooks, and there’s always a risk I’ll buy another one. Our family owns a lotalota cookbooks, and I peruse these, too. I also read cookbooks in libraries, and cookbooks in friends’ homes. And, I read recipes in the food sections of my favorite newspapers.
All this cookbook reading used to bother me, because I cook a lot, but I rarely follow recipes. I think that all the cook-reading I does affects my style, but … well, what does justify the time and expense?
I’m pleased to announce that in this little matter, I understand myself. I just like to “read” cookery. Okay?
