10- A good cookbook
It’s not easy to cook when you don’t know anything about it, you don’t have an idea, or you don’t appreciate it. A recipe book that we like is therefore essential. There are a very large number of them. For students, for families, for those in a hurry… Specific to starters, traditional dishes or even desserts… To make pasta, risottos or salads or even for batch enthusiasts cooking, to cook meals for the week in 2 hours during the weekend. To lose weight, choose a “slimming goal” or “light recipes”, but not a book on a diet that is too restrictive. The recipes must be simple, the ingredients well indicated, as well as the preparation and cooking times. This is especially important if you don’t enjoy cooking. In this case, also opt for “easy” and/or “fast” labels. Finally, let yourself be carried away by the images you will see while leafing through it. If they inspire you, go for it! You will want to make them all the more! A suggestion ? the Simplissime light: the easiest light cookbook in the worldof J. F. Mallet published by Hachette cuisine.
