What’s for dinner?

I like cookery books. A lot. Remember these (from 2004)?

The collection continues to grow. My favourite this year (it was a Christmas present) is Elizabeth Luard’s European Peasant Cookery. I’ve just ordered 1080 Recipes (mmm, Spanish food).

But for the habitually disorganised, faced with a random assortment of potential ingredients and limited time to make something tasty, the internet takes some beating. I tend not to use particular recipe databases anymore: I simply google “recipe [list more or less plausible ingredients]” and let it do its serendipitous thing a few times until something I fancy turns up. It works remarkably well, much of the time.

Now, if only Google could do the washing up as well…
