We had a friend and his daughter here for Easter and he brought me this huge basket of goodies and in it was a cookbook..Elenora's Kitchen..I'm just looking at the cover now, it is a collection of American Italian recipes...will look at it more deeply tomorrow and see what it has..I don't really cook from books, but rather look through them and then do the recipe my way or combine several to get what I know my crew will enjoy..

Hello Katie. Yes am a cookbookaholic also. Am a recovering one I hope.

But also am a bibliophile, so what do you do with someone who loves books, particularly cookbooks, but has many other interests?

I am trying to convince myself that I have more than enough books to last me through reading for many more lives.

Am doing the best I can.

The Silver Spoon (Il cucchiaio d’argento) is one of the coolest I think. I keep meaning to get my own copy (I have bought them as gifts and then borrowed back.... terrible). It is a translation of an encyclopedia of Italian coooking compiled by Domus. It is sort of an art-book. Short on edetorial conted but full of classic italian recipes.

I think it makes a great reference and it is a lovely book.

The Williamsburg Cookbook-an old copy-new to me...I wanted a traditional recipe for Brunswick Stew...what I have found in the past is that everywhere named Brunswick claims to be "the" one...

1000 cookbooks and counting

[quote=Katie E;575773]Hi, my name is Katie and I'm a cookbookaholic.....]

Oh boy me too! I have 5 book shelves full and 4 45-gallon totes full of cookbooks. *sigh*

Slowly but surely I'm getting them all into my Mastercook software, including the photos, and then letting them go.
