Real Fast Food by Nigel Slater 

Nigel Slater is hands-down my favourite food writer. It's the way he describes ingredients, pairing a recipe with some sides and effortlessly presents you with a meal consisting only 3 ingredients. There are no pictures to this 400 page recipe book, but Slater never ceases to amaze me with his wits and generosity in teaching his readers about absolutely
everything. This book (or any of his books ) intimidates no one, even for someone who doesn't cook, it will still be a pleasure to read.

Tokyo Cult Recipes by Maori Murota 

It's obvious why I picked it up and walked straight to the cashier: it's just too darn pretty! From the graphics, flat-lays, to the little doodles on the corner of the page, it's an absolute treat. Apart from that, it's a book full of integrity, sharing recipes from author's mother. It takes you through Tokyo with beautiful photographs, showcasing recipes inspired by both traditional and modern food culture. We gave a few simple ones a try, and can't wait to try out more!
