Despite my love of baking, my enjoyment for cooking is something that has taken a lot longer to find. However, with an ever increasing variety of cookbooks being released all the time I’m finally feeling inspired to look outside of my tiny repertoire of quick-fix meals to create meals that I enjoy both making and eating! Here are some of my current favourite books for finding food inspiration.
Niomi Smart’s passion for healthy food has resulted in her recently launched cookbook Eat Smart. Compiling all of her favourite recipes, Niomi focuses on meals using everyday ingredients that are easy to obtain, showing even the most unhealthy of foodies that eating well doesn’t mean having to sacrifice your favourite sweet treats or homely comforts. My favourite recipes so far are her Mauritian Curry with Coconut Rice and Chocolate Ganache.
Despite already releasing more cookbooks in his Lean In 15 series, I only recently picked up Joe Wicks first book while browsing through the aisles of my local supermarket. One of the biggest appeals of this book to me was the fact that all of his recipes are quick-to-prepare and don’t require you to spend hours behind the stove cooking ingredients you’ve never heard of.
An oldy but a goody, Jamie’s 15 minute meals paved the way for easy dinner time inspiration. Consisting of classic pasta dishes, super salads and Asian-inspired street food, there’s something for everyone to try.
Deliciously Ella was the first recipe book I took a real interest in purchasing and reading cover to cover. Not only does she provide over 100+ recipes but you also gain massive insight into a wide range of healthy alternative foods and utensils to use in the kitchen.
Where do you find your foodie inspiration?
