FREE cookbooks


Recommended Posts

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:

Life is short; eat the cheese course first.

i am in the process of minimizing and have some cookbooks that i can no longer use.  if anyone would like them, please pm me with your snail mail address and i will drop them in the box.  right now i have 4 available:

Lancaster County Cookbook

My Own Cook Book - Gladys Taber

Peter Hunt's Cape Cod Cookbook

The Luchow's Cookbook

I would rather send them to a good home with one of you than drop them in the local library book sale.

Hi. could i have the Lancaster county cookbook and the cape cod cookbooks, please?

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.

      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!
