On the topic of cookery books - anyone still buy 'celebrity' cook books? I got disillusioned (and snapped out of my naivete) when I found out that some of them (Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson) don't even write them themselves, so I stopped buying them. I suppose I should have deduced that myself based on how could they possibly find the time...

Which of them actually write their own?
The only "celebrity" books I have are from America's Test Kitchen, Jacques Pepin, and Laura Calder.

I borrow my cooking books from the library. When I buy one, I watch through it, look on the photos, put it in the shelf and forget it for years and never cook something from it. Even when I write interesting recipes out of it. Stay healthy

I was gifted a Mario Batali cookbook. I've gotten inspiration from it, but haven't made any of the recipes verbatim. It has been helpful in understanding what kind of seasonings work with different dishes.
