Sad news for book-loving cooks

One of the highlights of the trip to Edinburgh, was a visit to the Cook's Bookshop in West Row, a treasure-trove of secondhand cookery books. But it's closing! So get there quick if you want to be able to delve into wondrous titles like Graham Kerr's original 1969 Galloping Gourmet cookbook... (no prizes for guessing what I took home!).

That said, another great place for a rummage is your local charity shop. I've picked up all sorts in Newcastle, the best being a copy of Len Deighton's Ou est le garlic? at the Oxfam bookshop. I like old books best, the sillier the better (hence the presence of Cooking with Men in Mind, and The Breville Toaster Cookbook in my collection...)
