If you never ever read another on-line recipe again, then this website should be your last visit: Old Scrote's Cookbook Read it not just for the food ideas but the sheer quality of the observations and the humour, it is a proper blokish read. Here are two examples: ARRSE doesn't write cookbooks, but if it did....... (and before anybody gets smart-arrsed about it, yes I realise that it does now!) Edited to add: I should also point out that It has seriously good recipes from England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, India, China. Mittle Europe and the Middle East. In fact pretty much everywhere except America and Australasia which is a great shame. If you want a good traditional recipe it is probably on there somewhere.
