How about a cookbook category?

Have cookbooks become passe in this newfangled Internet connected world?

It's kind of surprising that there's no topic for the discussion and review of them here.

I've stopped collecting them, and I do use the internet for 99% of my recipe needs. So much faster, and I can get to them from home, work, or a friend's house. No more copying recipes, I just send a link!

I dont know why not many people post in this forum anymore. I've been seeing myself as the last one who posted in most of the threads!

Let's see if we can't stir things up a bit then. I've got a few things to do this morning, but afterwords I'll pull a favorite book off of the shelf and start a discussion.

No question the internet is a great place to find and endless supply of recipes. However, you can't get everything online. If you are looking for a specific recipe from a specific chef/person, you could be out of luck. For example, Mario Batali's Osso Buco recipe. (I'm not actually looking for this), or Julia Child's Andalusian Chicken. (not looking for this one either).

Usually when I pick a username on a forum I put a little thought into what my shortened "nickname" would be. Guess I didn't think on this one enough! Not sure what vag means where you are, but in America it is a nickname for a female body part.

The Internet is a good source for recipes, but to me, it pales next to curling up with a good cookbook.
