As someone who is always looking forward to the next cookbook, I'd like to know: what cookbooks coming out in 2010 are you looking forward to? Here are a few of mine:

Chocolates and Confections at Home by Peter Greweling. Looks to be filled with wide variety of chocolates and candies and hopefully not as complicated as his earlier book.

Paris Patisseries: History, Shops, Recipes (foreward by Pierre Herme -- I thought the author was Julia Hung, but this info seems to have disappeared from Amazon). Not much info on this one, but I ordered it anyway.

Tender v. 2: A Cook's Guide to the Fruit Garden by Nigel Slater. Bought v. 1 (vegetables) and have really enjoyed reading it. Chapters are organized by vegetable and includes gardening tips.

Julia Hung is mentioned only in the Amazon page section "About the author".

Planet Barbecue by Reichlen and Modern Gastronomy: A to Z by Ferran Adria are on my wish list.

I'm seriously running out of shelf space though, I'll have to limit future purchases....

The publishers are a little slow in revealing their catalogs right now (especially near the holidays), but I think there are a few interesting titles to look out for so far. In addition to what's been said above (pardon my bias for pastry books):

Artisan Breads at Home by the CIA (Wiley, January)

Ready for Dessert: My Best Recipes by David Lebovitz (Ten Speed, April) (though the slanted cake layers on the cover hurt my eyes)

The Perfect Finish: Special Desserts for Every Occasion by Melissa Clark and White House pastry chef Bill Yosses (WW Norton, June)

The Modern Cafe by Francisco Migoya (Wiley, January)

Here is the official info on Paris Patisseries. Julia Hung is the author.

The Modern Cafe by Francisco Migoya

Yep, that one's right up there at the top of my list too. I can't believe I forgot it in my post. I loved/still love Frozen Desserts so I'm really looking forward to the Modern Cafe as well.

It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

So, this book is about opening a cafe. How to do it *right*. Has anyone taken a look at it yet? I'd love to get some feedback as I want to get it as a gift for someone and there are no reviews on Amazon yet.

      Does anyone have any thoughts about Alice Waters' new "40 Years of Chez Panisse"? Not a recipe cookbook - more of a memoir/history/picture book.

      What would you like to be included in a cookbook you classify as a "good cookbook"?

      Other than the three written by Michael Ruhlman, which I have read and loved, what other books are out there that are about cooking, but not cookbooks?

      I just received a copy of "The Cook's Book - Concise Edition" edited by Jill Norman, and now I'm curious, what's the difference to the full edition? Supposedly it has 648 pages compared to 496 in this edition, and it appears to be much larger in size if the info on us.dk.com is correct. Other than that I can't find any info what the difference might be. It's a neat book with lots of photos about techniques etc, and lots of recipes. As with any DK book production values are high.
      If the contents are the same, I'm happy with the smaller version, but I'd really like to know what I might be missing on those 150 or so pages. If it's just filler, I don't care. If it's some fantastic recipes, I do care....
      Anybody here know both editions? Google was so far of no help. Lots of the full edition are to be had used as well, I'd be happy giving this one as a gift and ordering the full edition, if it's worth it.
      Thanks!

      Say you were rounded up with a group of folks and either had a skill to offer in exchange for a comfy room and some other niceties or were sent off to a slag heap to toil away in the hot sun every day for 16 hours, what 3 books would you want to take with you to enable you to cook and bake such fabulous foodstuffs that your kidnappers would keep you over some poor schlub who could cook only beans and rice and the occasional dry biscuit?
