What cookbooks have you bought lately, or are you lusting after? Happy New Year January 2015 edition!

I got A Modern Way to Eat for my iPad, and real copies of Hemsley and Hemsley and Shoku-Iko (japanese Healthy Eating). Spot the connection? I'm returning Hemsley and Hemsley as I found it just too faddy and annoying. Lots of talk of "activating" beans and seeds and "bone broth" or stock as normal people who aren't trying to sell a "healthy eating concept" say.

Looking forward to Diana Henry's new chicken book, out in March.

A Change of Appetite is good, as are all her books tbh. Check out the Diana Henry COTM threads.

The apple cake is one of my favourites - simple and homely. Will have a look to see what else I've made when I'm at home later.

I've made a few things from Persiana - all good. I can definitely recommend the spiced carrot cake, the stuffed aubergines, the pistachio and feta dip and the ezme (chilli dip/salad).

OMG - so jealous of his Transatlantic cruise! If he doesn't find one, let me know and I will see what I can do.

When the mood takes you again for kind of cassoulet, I heartily recommend the sausage and bean stew in Diana Henry's Cook Simple - and it might not be so frustrating to make. I made it for friends once, and now she makes it all the time. Glad to hear the fire department didn't make an appearance this time!

I really like Persiana.

December 2014 & February 2011 Cookbook of the Month: THE ESSENTIAL NEW YORK TIMES COOKBOOK Chapters 5-8

Absolutely! Forgot to say that I didn't have whole milk so used semi-skimmed and a bit of creme fraiche. Worked fine.

I think I needed a day home sick yesterday as I've been crazy busy. It was actually quite nice to hunker down and watch seasonal TV (Cinderella!).

Finally got round to making something from the COTM! We loved this fast ragu, despite using sausages that were not ideal (super spicy and had been lingering in the freezer for rather too long). Feeling a bit under the weather today so a nice, quick yet hearty recipe. Will make again with better sausages.

I really like her blog. Funny and not smug. The opposite of that "my fabulous life in France" one.

WH Smith have lots of bargains ATM. Got Maddhur Jaffrey's Curry Nation and Gordon Ramsay's Ultimate Home Cooking for a fiver apiece.

I've been tempted to buy that for a while. Btw, have you been getting my emails, Breadcrumbs?

As a Northern European, I'm totally with you. The winter in London isn't that cold, but it's long. I always forget that March is still pretty much winter and start getting impatient for Spring. We had a glorious Autumn this year though. Was bare-legged until just over a week ago!

I could get behind this too. I've actually made a few things from this book already. ROAST FIGS SUGAR SNOW

I lived in Russia for a year at the end of the Soviet era and by far the best food I had in that time was from Georgia. I still fantasise about the cheesy bread (hatchipuri!

Me too. But I find the Kindle ap on my iPad is the way to go for cookbooks.

August 2014 COTM - Diana Henry: Pure Simple Cooking

It's passata not puree in my edition of the book - maybe that was the problem?

Both times I've made it for guests and it's great because you can do all the prep in advance, and then just stick it in the oven. And let's face it, you can't go wrong with chorizo in my book.

I've made this a couple of times with merguez and really enjoy the combination with the tzatziki.

I've made this twice now. Easy, and big, gutsy flavours. I agree that you need some good bread with it.

As Gio said, it's a little self-absorbed. I'm clearly a horrible, bitter person!

I'd never heard of the blog before. Is it just me that finds it irritating?
