5 Favourite Books Meme

I was tagged for this meme by Reid, yay how much fun is this? Since this is the first time I have ever been tagged! I decided to keep the same spirit as Reid and write about my cookbooks which seems to me to be the most appropriate for this blog. I dont hink I could ever decide on my 5 favourite novels, Yikes. Or openly admit just how many novels I own.....

1. Total number of (cook) books I’ve owned:
Um, Heaps? about a hundred?
2. Last (cook) book(s) I bought:
The Well Filled Tortilla cookbook by Victoria Wise and Susanna Hoffman
3. Last (food) book I read:
Untangeling my chopsticks : A culinary sojourn in Kyoto by Victoria Abbot Riccardi
4. Five (cook) books that mean a lot to me:

1)The whole series of Time Life food cookbooks
This book series is not technically mine but my mums, the "Cakes" book is my favourite it has the best chocolate cake recipe ever. If we fix our stove it will be the first thing I make.

2)South East Asian Food by Rosemary Brissenden
Plus the other penguin food cookbooks like Middle Eastern, Vegertarin, Italian, French, etc love them all.

3)The New York Times Natural Health Foods Cookbook by Jean Hewitt
This book reminds me of my childhood, and my mother is really jealous because I bought a copy second hand that is in better condition than hers You always feel that you must be cooking healthily when you make a recipe from it too ;).

4)The Art of Cooking with love and Wheatgerm (And other natural foods) By Jane Kinderleher
I found this book on the side of the road and its great.. some recipes dont translate to well but I really like the sentiments it expresses.

Well that is technically more that 5 books, so I will finish there. But there are a whole heap more that would compete for the next position.

5. Which 5 people would you most like to see fill this out in their blog?

As long as they haven't already been tagged, I would like to tag:

The ever cute Pink Cocoa

The camera less Michele from Oswego tea, cause you don't need a camera to post about your books

The lovely Lyn from Lex Culinaria

The Tasty Gwenda form TAOTT

The Beautiful Amy from Beauty Joy of Food

Hi Clare,

You did better than I did. I couldn't pick just 5, but after thinking about it some more, I'm going to add a couple to my list.

Clare Eats said...

Of course it's ok :) I dont mind!

Hi Reid,
Thankyou so much! it was so hard... that's why I kinda cheated :) lol

Michèle said...

Hi Clare,
Im done! gold star for me! :)

Amy said...

Hey, it's my first time getting tagged, too. Thanks, Clare! I think I'm going with the original meme and using just books, not cookbooks.

Clare Eats said...

Hi Michele,
You are so quick! Well done, you can definately have a gold star.

Hi Amy,
That sounds cool, I cant wait to see which books you choose
