Yesterday I picked up a cook book called "Appetite" by Nigel Slater http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0609610783/002-7588033-0966442
It makes for really interesting reading. This fellow takes the approach of not providing recipes in the traditional sense; instead of specifying exact amounts of ingredients, he encourages you to include as much or little of an ingredient as suits your taste. This approach may sound intimidating to those who are used to exact amounts to spelled out. It's not; it is actually a lot easier.
His writing is clear and the book is copiously illustrated with colour photos.
Check it out at your local library!

That's very much like my own style of cooking. When I was younger I used to weigh everything exactly but these days I know what 50g, 0.5 litre, two tablespoons etc. of common ingredients look like so I just throw it all straight into the bowl. I find that substituting one ingredient for another is very liberating. Perhaps it's an outlet for my rebellious streak. I regard recipies as guidelines rather than rules.
