I love to collect cookbooks. Not necessarily to follow the receipes but more to be inspired by the freshness of the ingredients and to see how different cultures like to combine their spices and condiments.
Recently, I took a liking to Delicious, a monthly Australian food magazine published by the ABC network. Being an agriculturally rich country, Australia has no shortage of the freshest meat, seafood and vegetables and with immigrants from around the world settling down under, it has become a hotpot of cultures and colours.
Not only are the receipes and feature stories interesting, the food styling makes a statement in the most chic way. I hardly subscribe to magazines but I might make Delicious a regular monthly indulgence.
