At his own risk. :-D

It is an addiction pixie, I cannot remember my own name somedays but you bet I know my books, I,m a bit worried about all the new ones coming on the market at the moment and I don,t even want to try and resist buying them....ALL, but where the hell am I going to put them now? My nearest and dearest is getting seriously cross with me so I,m even starting to slip them quietly by him and hope he doesn,t notice. Trouble is books are starting to take over the madhouse and he,s not daft, I mean how do you explain this one away to a non book person? Xxxx

That,d be me and Pixie then, I bet we,ve got all his books, gullible fools that we are or just suckers for the smell of a newly minted recipe book. I,m just off to see my dealer.....

Carole..we have! I do like alot of his food, it's easy and tasty and the ingredients are easy to get now that he is top dog..the supermarkets listen to him. I don't buy newspapers so i have no idea about his celeb status..I don't care either! All that malarky doesn't interest me..all I know is I cook his recipes and they are good.x

Maybe I was a bit harsh especially when I too have some of his books. In the grand scheme of things he's more likeable than Gordon Ramsey and Marco Pierre White. I can't abide chefs who shout and swear at people

I'm with you on that Mrs P..Gordon has such a gob on him! I can't stand to see the way he shouts at people, there is no need.
I had a boss like that once.
I remember a time, i worked on the shop floor and was in the office talking to someone about an order that was late. It was an open plan area and very quiet, he sat down and put his feet on the desk and proceeded to hold court. Someone in the paper had won alot of money and "The Boss" was saying what an idiot the person was because they had continued to work. He was asking the office staff their views and of course they were all in agreement with him. I kept my head down and didn't join in as we had a dodgy relationship anyway..( He banned me from the morning meetings because I didn't agree with him)..anyway he notices I was there and calls out across the room.." Hey! You what do you think..If you won alot of money bet you wouldn't come into work the next day would ya?"
" yes I would" i shouted back..his cue to make a show of me.
" hey listen everyone , she said she would come in..Nah you wouldn't, why would ya?"
" I would you know..just so I could tell you where to stick your job!" at that point I was at the door and could hear people laughing!
He was always shouting and bullying people, they were terrified of him and he was a big man.
So no I don't like Gordon..but he's recipes are good.
I like calm in the kitchen!

So many books that I would love to get. Thankfully I am trying to restrain myself and so far it seems to be working although I'll probably end up placing a large order

Mrs p, pixie and me, sounds like a film title.....yes, do let,s keep our eyes open for bargain books. Green metropolis, The Works, The Book People, Books for
Cooks, if they,re still around, Abe Books, they are all sources of addiction. We,ll keep each other posted shall we?

Wikipedia is your friend Pixie. I haven't heard of her either but it looks like she's a pretty big name in the US

'Susan Feniger is an award-winning American chef, restaurateur, cookbook author, and radio and TV personality considered to be a leading authority on Latin cuisine in the United States.'

That book will have to come down in price a bit before it makes its way near my basket

I'd love to see how long your wishlist is. Have you ever considered hypnosis as a cure? :)

Had the Leon books, gave them away, bit foolish of me I know but the recipes did not appeal to me at all. I loved the books themselves, the paper, writing style layout etc etc, but I was talking to my friends son andvgirlfriend who were really Into Leon and I found myself saying " oh! I,ve got a couple of books you can have" hey oh, it felt good at the time. Xxxx

Frenchie says:
Pixie's wishlist is only 68 items long (as today's date) and 92% are cooking books.
One took my fancy, Cooking in Provence, especially one reviewer is saying that they are simple recipes in essence (I do not find french cooking that easy) but the book looks wonderful and I love the food from South of France. Oh, I am all nostalgic now, by just watching the wonderful picture of the sea , in the preview. Sniff, sniff...
put it on my wish list.
