I see your Pierre Franey and raise you a "Baking in America" (Greg Patent) ordered by mistake and sadly, the last 20 pages were exposed to moisture so I could not return it. I only bake at gunpoint, so if anyone could use this, I would be happy to forward it.

I've found a home for my somewhat crumpled "Baking in America." Thanks to all for your interest and "pay it forward" everyone who benefits from this thread and has a title lying around that you haven't used for a while. One man's trash...

Hey, CaliP, I'd like to have that one.

And to offer, I have:

Hotter Than Hell by Jane Butel - brand new

Pressure Cooking for Everyone by Rick Rodgers - also brand new

I'd love the pressure cooking book! It's gotten abruptly hot here (upper 90s all last weekend, gorgeous!), and since my apartment has no air conditioning I'm getting suddenly very well-acquainted with my new Kuhn Rikon. Sent you an email too. :)

Abra,

Can I have the Jane Butel book? We really love hot and spicy food and I'd love to get some new ideas. Am sending you a PM as well.

thanks a million,

Seema

I've got a copy of:

Craig Claiborne and Pierre Franey's "The Master Cooking Course"

hardcover in excellent condition, but a small tear in the dustjacket at the top front. The book is a step by step guide to the preparation of 4 different meals. Any one with an eye for this one?

      What would you like to be included in a cookbook you classify as a "good cookbook"?

      Other than the three written by Michael Ruhlman, which I have read and loved, what other books are out there that are about cooking, but not cookbooks?

      I just received a copy of "The Cook's Book - Concise Edition" edited by Jill Norman, and now I'm curious, what's the difference to the full edition? Supposedly it has 648 pages compared to 496 in this edition, and it appears to be much larger in size if the info on us.dk.com is correct. Other than that I can't find any info what the difference might be. It's a neat book with lots of photos about techniques etc, and lots of recipes. As with any DK book production values are high.
      If the contents are the same, I'm happy with the smaller version, but I'd really like to know what I might be missing on those 150 or so pages. If it's just filler, I don't care. If it's some fantastic recipes, I do care....
      Anybody here know both editions? Google was so far of no help. Lots of the full edition are to be had used as well, I'd be happy giving this one as a gift and ordering the full edition, if it's worth it.
      Thanks!

      Say you were rounded up with a group of folks and either had a skill to offer in exchange for a comfy room and some other niceties or were sent off to a slag heap to toil away in the hot sun every day for 16 hours, what 3 books would you want to take with you to enable you to cook and bake such fabulous foodstuffs that your kidnappers would keep you over some poor schlub who could cook only beans and rice and the occasional dry biscuit?

      I am interested in getting some cookbooks that cover the basics of pastry and baking--not bread, necessarily, but dessert, cakes, cookies, etc. I searched a few other cookbook threads but did not have luck on finding books on pastry.
      My interest is in fairly classic French and European style baking, and I need a book that covers technique. Pictures would also be much appreciated--I like both the step by step pix or great pictures of the end product.
      Right now, I have Desserts and Chocolate Desserts by Pierre Herme. (I love these and have had good results from the recipes, but feel I should start with a more classic approach.) La Varenne Pratique has provided some good starting points, but I would like to find a book with more focus on baking.
      I was thinking about the Payard book. Any comments? Suggestions would be much appreciated! In case it applies, I am a home cook and am slightly more skilled than a total beginner.
      Thanks!
