  1. In the "Chefs as Writers" thread a subtopic developed about classic cookbooks and I thought it deserved its own thread. Here are some books no cookbook collection should be without. Louise Bertholle - Secrets of the Great French Restaurants Richard Olnay - Simple Cooking Patricia Wells - Bistro Cooking Chris Schlesinger & John Willoughby - The Thrill of the Grill Harold McGhee - Science of Cooking Robert Carrier - Great Dishes of the World There are loads more. Feel free to post your list.
  2. Can anyone name their top 10 choice of cooking / recipe books? If you can't name 10 that does not matter - jsut name however many you have. My current must have is Rick Stein's Seafood but, so soon after Christmas expenditure, at £25 will have to go on the wish list. It really is the business in terms of everything to do with seafood from buying through preparation to cooking and beautifully illustrated so you cannot fail to know what is going on. With this book one could become great!
  3. I don't know about trends, but I've noticed that there's a cookbook review section now (in Chicago). I'd like to see more of that, cuz right now it runs a little hot and cold. Sometimes they review a new cookbook, other times they just don't have anything on cookbooks. There's always new cookbooks coming out and reading reviews helps me decide whether or not to even bother getting it. This section could also review food writing, anthologies, new books about travel and food, etc. How do you handle this?
  4. Coming to a crowded bookshelf near you, Mario Batali's Babbo: The Cookbook, May 2002. Mint love letters, anyone?
  5. I recently purchased "Hot Sour Salty Sweet" by Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid, after reading the review in either Cooks Illustrated or Saveur. It is a huge coffee-table book, but has great recipes and stories. The book is basically a travel diary of the couple's travel down the Mekong river with their children. The recipes are straightforward and usually simple, although the emphasis on making your own pastes and spice mixes sometimes makes the ingredient lists long. I also enjoyed the stories about the people they met and the places they stayed. In addition, there are lots of photographs, not just of the food, but of the land and its inhabitants. If you are into either travel books or cookbooks, are interested in Vietnamese and Thai cooking (and the surrounding cultures as well), and/or planning a trip to this region of the world, then I highly recommend this book. It is available on Amazon.com for ฯ.50 new, ฬ used, I paid ส for it (incl shipping) on half.com in June.
  6. Skortha advised me that, unexpectedly, the book "Gourmet Cooking for Dummies" is quite useful. It is co-authored by Charlie Trotter, and has some interesting recipes. (And, yes, it is one of those bright-yellow-colored books.) Note the book is not newly released. Do members have input on the book? Also, have members read the newer book applauding Trotter's employee management and restaurant running practices?
  7. What are some of your favorite cookbooks and/or authors? And how did they influence your writing and cooking as it is today? Thank you.
  8. Thank you for participating in this Q&A Alexandra. I would like to buy a good vegetarian cookbook, as well as a tofu cookbook. What are your recommendations?
  9. My little hop vine climbed up the side of our back porch and now has a nice crop. My home-brew days are long past, but I seem to have a vague memory of using the hop berries as a seasoning in other foods. Google searches come up with beer, beer, and more beer. Any other ideas out there? Jim
  10. I haven't seen a thread on this, and I'm curious, so here goes: What was your first cookbook? Was it a gift? Do you still use it? My first cookbook was the Betty Crocker Boys and Girls Cookbook, published in 1965. I don't remember ever making anything from it. My daughter will probably get it eventually. It's a relic. The first cookbook I remember using was my mother's edition of Fannie Farmer from 1965. I searched out my own copy and still use it.
  11. What can you tell me about this author or his books/restaurants? I am going to meet him on Wednesday for a book signing, and to be honest, have never heard of him. Thanks!
