Affordable cook book

Post by renuevino » 05 Sep 2013, 01:04

I love cookbooks but the celebrity chef cook books are expensive and not suitable for day to day cooking. Any good cook books at affordable price? :roll:

You could go to Your Local fete. Or browse online. Also there are some good cooking apps. Some chefs post recipes on Facebook. Happy cooking

I find the women's weekly cook books are reasonable priced around $10 and the recipes use ingredients that most people have in their cupboard. I have several of these and they don't disappoint

I like the Fix It and Forget It line of cookbooks. They are meant for your crockpot/slow cooker. Many to choose from and very affordable. You can find used on eBay and Amazon.

I've heard good things about the Fix it and Forget it books.

I don't know many (any) new cookbooks. I bet something by Jacques Pepin would be good. He reviewed lots of techniques on his cooking shows.
