What are the best Hotel Room Service type cookbooks?


Recommended Posts

What are the best Hotel Room Service type cookbooks more on the comfort food side of the spectrum? Anything too gourmet or fancy is not what I'm looking for.

I'm not familiar with Hotel Room Service cookbooks.  Most hotels offer room service items off their restaurant menus and there are all sorts of hotel restaurants.  What are your favorite Hotel Room Service cookbooks?  That might also help us understand what you mean by "best"?  Most complete?  Easiest recipes?  Most thoroughly illustrated with photographs?

If you're new to hotels or professional cooking, maybe something like the Culinary Institute of America's Professional Chef books would be helpful. 

 

As you noted, room service does not have to be super fancy.  Many people seek comfort & familiarity while traveling, so consider where your guests are coming from.

Seems as if the OP wants to know every "best"  type pf cookbook there is. At this point, I wonder what for?

 

Perhaps tell us the overall goal of your project, @BooBear.

 

 

I'm waiting for the "What's the best 'what's the best cookbook list topic'⁈"

Yeah, those are the types of foods I'm thinking about. Any good cookbooks that highlight those types of comfort foods?
