OH came home yesterday with the Hairy Bikers Bakeathon book from their recent TV series round Europe and the recent cookbook from the two Italians. Both books are fantstic and unusual in the fact that most of the recipes appeal to me. I have lots of cook books but oftern only use one or two recipes from each one. I like the Hairy Bikers because of their "no nonsense" approach to cooking. I cant' stand Gorden Ramsey and as a result don't look at any of his cookbooks. Do you have a)a favourite chef and b)a favourite cook book?
