Show us your latest cookbook acquisitions!

What a great topic! Of course, what if a recent acquisition is a book published in 2021...imagine the neuroses?

 

I've only bought used stuff this year, and will probably continue down that path. I figure something has to be pretty great and groundbreakingly new to be worthy.

 

Of course there's this one...

And I also picked this up, for a song...

And this one, for a hoot and a holler...

I really liked Vetri's Pizza book, and flirted with Pasta for some time before succumbing.    I love making hand-made pasta, although I don't do it often enough.    It's kind of Play-Doh for adults.   So finally...

Raymond Sokolov -- one of my favorite food writers.  I'm a hoarder but I've sadly been clearing out old magazines.  Including Natural History.  How I miss Sokolov's food columns.

Indeed a great writer.

 

I was looking at my giant stack of Saveur - maybe almost every issue. But I can't/shant keep them much longer; not like they're used for reference. And besides, every recipe is findable online (??). But there was a time when their articles were very good, nice photography, etc.etc.

Yes I felt like that with my Gourmet and Saveur. I did keep all of the late Laurie Colwin articles and Nancy Silverton’s extensive bread article which describes how she collects her yeast

Have you thought of "lamp-posting" your magazines when you decide do let go of them?    Our house is on a rat-track to a popular Sunday farmer's market.   I put out a "free" box of cooking magazines.    It's fun to see people stop and "shop", cramming as many as they can into backpacks and shopping bags.    And to know they are going to good homes rather than recycle.

That's a great idea. We live out in the country, so it wouldn't work for us, but you've given me an idea. (I tried in vain to find a library that would let me donate my collection to their used book sales. No dice.) Much of my magazine collection has already gone to recycling, but since our Farmers' Markets will reopen this summer (I hope) they're a potential giveaway source. Hmm, even the Little Free Libraries are a possibility.

The Saucier’s Apprentice is still great.
