Do you see this book: Leith’s Techniques Bible? I must have it. It physically pains me that I’m going to have to wait until Christmas because I can’t justify spending that amount of money on a book for myself. I’m trying to come up with reasons to justify why simply must buy it for myself, but a comprehensive book on cookery techniques is hard to justify.
If you’re into cooking, then I can pretty much guarentee that you’ve got one cookery book that you love and trust above all others. One whose layout and style appeals to you, and whose recipies rarely, if ever, let you down. Mine is Leith’s Cookery Bible, bought for my by Javamaven some time ago. I love this book. I use it all the time. I trust it implicitly. If I had children, I would leave them to be babysat by this book.
You see why I must have the techniques bible? I will read it cover to cover. I will love it and squeeze it and call it George.
So please, help me think of a good enough reason to justify buying this for myself.
