1500?! Wow. That’s quite a library. Honestly I have no idea, I guess cook books + magazines + books about food = a few hundreds, should I include ebooks too?
I like looking at bowls, dishes, cups and other serving pieces like trays in shops and on internet. Luckily due to limit cupboard space and resources, I can’t have everything, but once I’ve decide on a collection, I tried to gather as much as I can on that collection, sometimes YEARS, I wait for the sales, outlet sites.
I have also a lot of different cake moulds tin, silicones, stainless steel etc, much more than I ever need in bakery.
