Yesterday I spent an hour lost in a bookshop.I am totally addicted to books and cannot resist the smell of a new book and turning crisp pages. In my mind I already started compiling a wishlist of books I want. I lingered longer in the cookery section and pointed out to my friend which books I already had.Its amazing how many cookbooks I already own but also how many I still want. I was also able to point out several chefs who I follow and interact with on Twitter.I later told my friend how I wish I had an unlimited credit card to buy all the books I want.
The following are celebrity chefs I admire and would love to own all their cookbooks someday :
1) Jenny Morris – I totally adore this awesome South African chef, who I had the pleasure of meeting.She has a great personality that comes through her cooking.I was pretty lucky to get Jenny to sign her cookbook for me.
2) Nigella Lawson- Nigella oozes passion for her cooking, entertaining and life. Her decadent recipes are not complicated and watching her on TV cook makes one hungry very quickly. I was extremely lucky that my dearest friend bought me my 1st Nigella cookbook. one which I have had my eye on for years 🙂
3) Jamie Oliver – started following Jamie while I was in London due to his Healthy Eating in schools programe. He is down to earth, empowers the misguided youth and makes cooking easy.
4) Heston Blumenthal – this chef really blows your mind with his use of science in cookery. Love how he makes each eating experience asalute to the senses.
5)Bobby Chinn love his food journeys throughout the world
