There are many cook books which have very difficult recepies. I would prefer a cook book which has some unique and easy to make recepies which I can make in less time.

There are so many ideas online, that buying a cookbook doesn't make sense to me. Maybe if I wanted to offer it as a gift to someone who isn't that passionate about technology.

The cookbook would have to contain either recipes for the crockpot (I am married to my crockpot) or for the microwave (I have occasional flings with the microwave).

Also, the cookbook should contain recipes following the Mediterranean diet or atleast some.

Even when photographs are included, they are of the transitory nature of internet content. A hard copy cookbook with lovely photos is like a collector's item to me.


A cookbook with beautiful pictues will always grab my attention. I love being able to attempt to make my food look as good as the pictures in the cookbook. I'll also buy any cookbook with something my husand wants to try. He's picky and if he likes something I'm all in to try it out.

To pick up the cookbook I would want an eye catching cover or one that had an old dust jacket that looked like it held a ton of delicious secrets. From there what I look for are great pictures of the food, a minimal level of expertise required (if I follow the directions I should be able to cook a quality item), allowances for people that don't have all the fancy gadgets, and short blurbs about the history of the recipe/culture/family tradition.

When I crave for something, I tend to experiment. And that's when I pick a cook book. Probably the first time you try to cook a certain recipe, it wouldn't be the same result as the book instructed. But practice makes perfect right?

Just place one right in front of me with a delicious looking dish on the cover and I will probably open it up to look for a fantastic recipe.
