Ooh...Korea. I'd love to get some more, different panchan recipes.

Today I stumbled across a copy of Culinaria Spain in a used book store, perfect condition, $10 USD. I'd never seen any of the series before and if it were not for this topic I probably would not have pulled it out of the pile. It's an amazing reference volume. The photography is gorgeous.

Yes Linda- one can also often find them in the mark down section of major booksellers- brand spanking new. SO much info and in my experience very credible.

Spain and France in our local Borders. One fewer of each in stock, actually.

I came across a used copy of Culinaria: European Specialties (Vol. 1 and 2) in a used bookshop in Charlottetown, PEI. I couldn't buy them due to luggage space issues, d'oh! I'm keeping an eye out for China at the local Costco, but this:

My only regret is that it doesn’t have the Chinese characters for the names of the dishes.

Is a pet-peeve of mine with Chinese cookbooks. I hope at least it's got the correct recipe name in pinyin; something other than names like "pork and bamboo shoots" for the recipes.

Got "Italy" at a yard sale for five bucks. Woo-hoo! Gorgeous.

Italy and Spain soft covers followed me home from Costco for $7.99 each. Just a couple left. Plenty of Greece, Southeast Asia and Germany still on the table. I've started going through the Spain edition - it is as raved over, thank you. Great prep for next year's trip and inspiring for this fall in the kitchen. (I dug around the table looking for China. Not yet. And least, not here.)
Here being Chicago.

I got China today in the mail...

Hopefully someone with a better knowledge of authentic Chinese cooking will critique it, but it was good to me.

Not enough exotic stuff in it for me. I didnt see stinky tofu either.

As I'm from Germany, I really love their Germany book, as I learn things that I never knew. I grew up in Bavaria, and it's interesting how different food is in other parts of this tiny country (which I think would fit 3 times into California, if I remember my boy's school project correctly. Also has about 3x the population of California though)

These are really gorgeous books, very well made, fantastic photos. Very much like the "beautiful cook book" series, that I also love.

It's just so much fun to get some local perspective and history about the dishes presented.

Bought the German, Greek and Hungarian 'Culinaria' tomes. It'd be nice to get a Culinaria South Africa. I have a few of the South African books avaliable in the West--a couple of them are cute, illustrated-with-water-colours numbers, but all of them suck to varying degrees. Or focus too heavily on, say, Cape Malay or 'Indian' cuisine at the expensive of Xhosa or Afrikaans or whatever else.
