Craig & Pierre have found a new home. I wish that eBay was this easy! Maybe if I gave things away there? :laugh:

It is almost this easy, and the more I do it, the easier it gets! I especially like selling books on eBay because you can type in the title, author, or the ISBN, and you will automatically get a description of the book including a stock photo for your listing. Click here to see the book I have up for bid now, utilizing the automatic description plus a brief addition of my own. Of course free is good, but now you can buy or sell a cookbook on eBay, to benefit the eG Society. Take a look here. (You can buy or sell anything on eBay now, as a way to contribute.) ...End of shameless plug. :smile:

i'm having SUCH a good time with this thread! - so here comes Purge #3 of my cookbook shelf :smile:

i just want to say first of all that a couple of these books are on the big & heavy side, so i feel like i have to ask for postage to be reimbursed - as a guideline, most of the books i send out (media mail) cost about $2.00, so these heavier ones will probably be closer to $4 or $5. i've marked the heavier books with ***, fyi.

ok, that said - here are the books i have to offer this time:

cakes, tortes & gateaux of the world - aaron maree ***

le cordon bleu techniques & recipes - fruit desserts

leafy greens - mark bittman

solo suppers - joyce goldstein

lettuce in your kitchen - chris schlesinger

big flavors of the hot sun - chris schlesinger ***

delicious desserts - good cooking ***

thanks! - kerry

What is "Big Flavors of the Hot Sun" about, Kerry? I'll ask this question online in case others want to know too.

i should mention that this book has probably been claimed already, but:

the book's cover-blurb says 'hot recipes & cool tips from the spice zone' - foods with big flavors (spicy hot, or strongly flavored), primarily from areas of the world where the weather is hot & the sun is bright :smile:

sample items: chicken chipotle quesadillas; grilled lamb chops with mint-chili glaze; cuban style yucca; orange-chili marmalade.

      I'm thinking about starting a blog featuring the recipes of antoine Carême that I've translated from 1700s French? No English versions of his works exist and his work is hard to find, even though he is the greatest chef who ever lived. After I get through his works I'd add menon, la Varenne, and other hard to find, but historically important masters of French cuisine. 
    • By Mullinix18
      I dont believe that any English translation of Carêmes works exist. An incomplete version was published in 1842 (I think) but even the that version seems lackluster for the few recipes it does cover. I think it's time the world looks to its past, but I don't speak great French and it's a huge task to undertake. I hopefully plan on publishing this work and anyone who helps me will get a very fair cut, and if we decide not to publish it, I'll put it out on the internet for free. I'm working in Google docs so we can collaborate. I'm first cataloging the index to cross reference the pre-existing incomplete English version to give us a reference of what yet needs to be done, and from there we will go down the list of recipies and Translate them one by one. Simple google translate goes only so far, as it is 1700s French culinary terms and phrases being used. I'd like to preserve as much of Carêmes beautiful and flowery language as possible. Who's with me?

      I have seen referenced in several places on the internet, including Wikipedia, a stat about escoffier recommending 40 minutes for scrambled eggs in a Bain Marie. I cant find where this number is from. On Wikipedia it refers to the book I currently own, the "Escoffier le guide culinaire" with forward by Heston Blumenthal by h. L. Cracknell...specificly page 157 for the 40 minute cooking time of scrambled eggs but it's not in my book on that page! Even tho there is the recipe for scrambled eggs on that page... I've seen the 1903 first edition online.. And it's not in there either.... Where is this number from?? Id like to know in case there is some even more complete book or something out there that I'm missing. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

      I have no idea why they blurred the name..
      so i really would love to know the name of this cookbook.
      Has anyone seen it?
      (I think it’s in French.)
       
      Thanks!

      I have Volumes 1 ,2 and 4 of Jean-Pierre Wybauw's Great Chocolate books are for sale.
       
      The books are in great shape!  There is some tape on the corner of the front of volume 1 that I used to keep it together after a drop.  Volume 1 is also autographed by the author (See pics below).
       
      I'm asking $150 for the lot OBO.
       
      Let me know if interested or if you have questions
