Cookbooks are a welcome Christmas present for all food lovers. Most foodies have their bookshelves filled with cookbooks and are always pleased to add more to their collections. Why not get one of Donal Skehan’s or Jamie Oliver’s books for people who prefer simple, homemade food that is easy to make. One of Yottam Ottolenghi’s books for lovers of Middle Eastern food could just hit the spot. For Irish food, have a look at some of the classics written by Darina Allen.

TK Maxx is my all time favourite shop for kitchen utensils and cookware. All year round you can find amazing quality products and brands at discounted prices. From saucepans to baking trays, from knives to cheeseboards they always have beautiful things for food lovers or home cooks. The great thing with TK Maxx is that it’s easy to buy something that looks expensive but you don’t have to pay too much for it as they have great deals. Don’t forget to look at their books as sometimes some great cookbooks can be found too.
