Dom is taking us all on a mini-break! Wooooo hoooo! No we are not going off to a country hotel like Bridget Jones, but instead we are visiting the Random Recipe -ers homes to view their collections of cookery books. How fantastic is that?
So here we are in my kitchen looking at the custom built shelves, I am fortunate to have found a fantastic carpenter who interprets my designs and makes them work. If you look carefully you will see that the middle section is for the medium sized books, there are different sized shelves at the ends so that the tall books go on the bottom and the smaller ones on the top. The theory is that I’m supposed to throw out a book before I can get a new one – do you think that happens?
Here is a bit of a closer shot of the middle section, the sun was shining in the window (I know, it hasn’t happened often!) so it was quite difficult to get the photos. So that is the tidy and organised part of the collection and I could have left it there with you thinking how tidy I am with my lovely book shelves…
Lets go into the dining room which is just off the kitchen. Next to my chair at the table there is a pile of magazines and often cookbooks too. I read these when I am having breakfast or after my tea.
Down to the left of my chair is the magazine box, which is full of cooking magazines on their way to or from the dining table. Let’s go into the living room now…
Here on the floor beside the computer are some more cook books that I have been referring to while blogging, they haven’t made their way back to the kitchen bookshelves yet.
And finally another couple of magazines open at recipes I am going to make (I’ve actually made these two) and the brown Orla Keilly notebook where I jot down all the blog challenges and changes to recipes as I’m making them.
I hope you’ve enjoyed your mini break in my home, as you can see I am totally obsessed with food and cooking, but if you are a regular visitor to Farmersgirl Kitchen, that will not surprise you!
