Well over 100, under 1000. When I have to leave this house they'll be donated or given to friends, most of them. Some I've never cooked from at all. Some are so worn away that you open them and can tell immediately which recipes are my favorites. I love them but know they'll have to go eventually!

Well over 100 gave up counting when I got to 150, that was also when I decided enough was enough and I didn't need another book or bookcase. Since then I have bought Heston Blumenthal's latest book, a couple on Tapas and Meze plus another North African one and Claudia Roden's New book of Middle Eastern food (I already have her Arabesque) and am now awaiting the delivery of Thomas Keller's French Laundry cook book and Bouchon.

I also have some small notebooks for handwritten recipes I have liked the look of, and several large ring binder files with plastic envelopes to hold all the recipes cut from Newspapers, magazines. etc.

When it is a horrible day I just pick up a few at random, browse through them and feel much, much better.

Good Evening,

As Shrek told Princess Fiona, No More Cookbooks, and the Vet told me: " if you want to buy another cookbook, then rent an apartment for them " !!! ha ha ha ...

I am uncertain, about 350 - 400 in total between the Condo and the Loft. At the Loft, 7 long and wide shelves ...

My latest is : CHEF FERRĀN ADRIĀīs "FAMILY MEALS" which comes in English, Catalan and Spanish.

Good Question, cool post.
Have nice wkend.
Margi.

@ Sean,

I like Jaime Oliverīs Mediterranean Cookbook on Italian, Spanish, Greek and Moroccan ... Nice job, well done and the photos are lovely.

@ A. Acid,

Heston Blumenthal is quite brilliant as well ... Like his take on Turbot Fish and Chips ... Cool book too ...

I have a weakness, keep me away from book shops, book stalls, garage sales, flea markets --- anywhere there are books !

Have nice wkend.
Margi.

From Ferran Adria and Heston Blumenthal to classic cook books. I love "La Bonne Cuisine de Madame E. Saint-Ange"
