My cookbook has varieties of chinese and western.
For western, i normally buy Nigella Lawson and Jamie Oliver's cookbook from Borders bookstore. It's darn expensive loh! I have 5 Nigella Lawson's cookbook and 2 Jamie Oliver's cookbook at home
For chinese, i can buy anywhere lah. Bookstore loh. Those selling at NTUC one, sometimes can be quite good also. Especially publised by SEAHORSE publishing one. U have to see the ingredient they use, and also, the cook is more important. I wont buy cookbook with incorrect measurement, and the cookbook didnt mention which cook/chef wrote them.
And u can get good recipe from www.tastespotting.com too

Thanks for the recommendation!! I am gonna head down to Borders to take a look. I think cooking is fun and I wanna take up cooking as a hobby hee..
Btw I always hear from ppl that cooking chinese food relies on how hot the fire is and the need to vary the fire etc to come up with yummy dishes. Does the cook chinese cook book mentions about how big the fire must be? I supposed thats gonna be quite hard to measure? haha

For example, when the oil and the wok is hot enough, then you can throw the greens inside and give it a good stir. Never put your veggies in the wok when the wok & oil is not hot enough. Because the veggie might end up taste bitter. This is what people teach me de la. Cookbook never write de la.
Those fire in our HDB flat... how good you want the fire to be? Unless you buy those Tze-Char kinda stove loh. Those round round one, looks like lotus shape one. Then, the fire will be different. But cooking for family, we dont really need those lah.
A good cookbook will teach u how to do, what to do, and what to avoid to achieve good result. Cheap cookbook will only tell u what to put. AND u have to be smart when you cook loh.
