Thanks!  Now I have my own copy of that ranch dressing so I don't have to hunt around here for it....you know....in case I ever decide to make it!

 

You still have to find it!  The recipe is not in the index.

But that's the good thing about the Kindle version - found it in a flash with a search for "ranch"

 

Edited to add that finding ramps to pickle is much less easy but I knew that!

Another suggestion from BookBub...a "celebrity" cookbook:

 

Valerie Bertinelli's "One Dish at a Time: Delicious Recipes and Stories from My Italian-American Childhood and Beyond : A Cookbook" Kindle Edition $1.99US

There are 3 recipes from the cookbook on this cookbook's info page:
CHALLAH FRENCH TOAST
LEMON CURD PANCAKES
PUMPKIN PANCAKES

Ironically, if you use the "Look Inside" feature you can see these same 3 recipes.:wink:

Polpo is a favorite of mine.  Lots of ideas for crostini and other small bites in the Cichèti chapter.

So Amazon has this "Great on Kindle" thing going and when you buy certain Kindle versions of books, you get a (small) credit towards a book in their "Great on Kindle" section.

While I was perusing the section this morning, I saw these two books and thought I would post them in case anyone is interested. I don't know how long they will be on sale:

 

Anthony Bourdain's "A Cook's Tour: In Search of the Perfect Meal" Kindle Edition $1.99US (price before credit, if you have one, applied)

 

Anthony Bourdain's "Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly" Kindle Edition $1.99US (price before credit, if you have one, applied)

 

I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.

I enjoyed Kitchen Confidential, so I sprang for Cook's Tour. I'm wondering if it's going to be anything like Eat My Globe, by Simon Majundar (and I may not have spelled that right). Anyone read it?

Don't ask. Eat it.

@kayb I had the dead tree version of A Cook's Tour. Only read a small portion of it. Gave it to a friend who reads a lot since I only read in fits and starts*. He got more use out of it. I don't know if he passed it on or not.

 

*I bought Helen Hoover's A Place in the Woods in December and am only about 70% through it.

@Porthos, I, on the other hand, read voraciously. I'll go through three novels a week (mostly mystery-thriller type stuff; right now I'm hooked on British detectives/police procedurals). But I'll also have two or three other books, normally non-fiction, going at a time. Those take me longer; I read a little, then go back to my novel, etc. Usually there's a cookbook, a history or philosophy or religion book, and some kind of biography going.

 

Haven't been in to reading cookbooks of late, so Cook's Tour will fill that slot for a few days.

I went with The Saffron Tales and the Smoke, Roots...Appalachian cookbook. When exactly I think I'll read, much less cook from, the extensive digital library I've already accumulated is a mystery. Does that stop me from looking, and sometimes pulling the trigger? Nope.

Note that it's broken up into seasons with food recipes, preserving/canning recipes, and recipes for your own DIY household cleaning products.
