May Cookbook Challenge – The Books!


It’s that time again where I choose the two books that I will be obsessively using over the next month! Every month I choose two books from my overstocked shelf of cookbooks and try as many recipes I can from them all month. At the end of the month I review both books and let you know what I think.

So far I’ve reviewed Veganomicon and Weightwatchers Meat Free Meals. Last month I used the Meat Free Monday Cookbook and 4 Ingredients Gluten Free which will be reviewed this week.

The first book I’ll be reviewing this month is The Vegetable Bible by Sophie Grigson.


This book is not a vegetarian/vegan one and is not gluten free. However with the strong emphasis on vegetables I am hoping there will be plenty in it that I can make! It is advertised as being perfect for veg box users so it should be a good fit into my routine and hopefully won’t require too many specialist ingredients.

The second book I’ve chosen is Everything You Need To Know About Gluten Free Cooking by Rick Marx and Nancy T.Maar.


After a quick search it seems that this book is not very widely available! I bought this when I was first told to give up gluten. I got it second hand from Oxfam but I’m sure it can be found in other places. I chose this because I’m still not entirely confident about gluten free cooking and am hoping this will give me some good advice!

So that’s my challenge for this month! As always I will post around one update a week on my progress and then at the end of the month I will give a full roundup and review. Wish me luck!
