I tweeted Nick Kokonas back in early July about the other cookbooks and he said that they were "nearly done...just need to encode and go". Anybody with a connection know anything more? I loved cooking from the Paris book and am dying for more.

I was beginning to think that they had abandoned the eBook idea, but now there's a glimmer of hope again. From a piece in Chicagoist about Christian Seel, the guy who does their promo films, and who compiled the original Paris eBook:

Chicagoist: You mentioned the electronic cookbooks earlier; do you think they will be released?

CS: They have been talking about a couple different things that I can’t really share at this time, but yes, I am still photographing and we are still producing content. When and how they are released publicly, I don’t honestly know.

Looks like the Ebooks are not dead...

Seems exciting but I wonder if they will sell enough to justify finishing the series...

It is a very beautiful. The recipes are given in restaurant quantities but since the book gives metric/Imperial measurements it should not be too difficult to make family size dishes.

      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?
