Just ordered The Soup Peddler's Slow and Difficult Soups, by David Ansel


Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

My name's Gregg and I'm (also) a cookbook addict. What I don't spend on cookbooks, or the new SVS, goes to the lumber yard for materials for new book shelves. Fortunately my wife still believes this is better for me than crack.

I must confess, I was drooling over the Ottolenghi books on Amazon yesterday. So tempting, especially considering how much I loved the restaurant when I was in London and that I am starting to think about spring produce. I don't think I'll have the time/energy for a full blown veggie garden this year, so there will certainly be money I save from that...(and with all the great local farmstands there will be no shortage of produce.)

Coming here for strength!

Plus one from from St.V de P: Better Homes and Gardens: Recipes from Prizewinning Cooks. Curious...there are no front pages missing and yet there is no date and no ISBN.

Found it on Amazon.com. 1986.

Does Modernist Cuisine count as zero cookbooks since it is a book about cooking? Or is it one cookbook, or six? Depending upon that, I've added 18 or 19 or 24 cookbooks since my last confession.

Just came here to ask the same question. But there have been other books purchased and some deaccessioned, so a full recount is in order. Still, one book or six for MC?

      After batting about .500 with my previous approach to macarons, I came across Pierre Herme's base recipe online.  After two flawless batches of macarons, I've been re-energized to continue to work at mastering them.  Specifically, I want to try more of his recipes.  My conundrum is that he has, as far as I can tell, two macaron cookbooks and I don't know which one I should get.  I can't tell if one is just an updated version of the other or a reissue or what the differences really are.  I was hoping somebody had some insight.  I have searched online and haven't seen both books referenced in the same context or contrasted at all.
       
      This one appears to be older.

       
      And this one appears to be the newer of the two.

       
      Any insight would be helpful.
       
      Thanks,

      This is not encouraging for American consumers.  On the other hand, it's not surprising either.  From my current Consumer Reports e-download.   https://www.consumerreports.org/food-labels/seals-and-claims?EXTKEY=EE993PMAC&utm_source=acxiom&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20190926_cromc_engagewkly

      After a delightful brunch at Koslow's Sqirl restaurant in Los Angeles, I've decided to attempt to cook through her cookbook. I'll post my results here.
       
      Please follow along and join in, if you're so inclined. Her food is wonderful, but I will surmise that her true deliciousness comes from using the best and freshest ingredients. I'll do my best to recreate the magic I felt at Sqirl.
       
      Here's the link to her book at Eat Your Books.
