I don't think I have one cook book that I could live without. Maybe I'm just too picky. I have many cookbooks, but don't think I have found one yet in which every single recipe I tried, worked out really well for me.

I just picked up this book at a thrift store last night - I probably would have bypassed it except for your post! Haven't looked at it too much, but what I have read is very interesting.... If they had over 1500 patrons each night, the food can't be too bad! I love Italian!

so thanks Constance!

I've got the English translation of this Italian cookery book on order. I'm going to pop into my local bookshop and see if it's arrived yet.

I love locally produced cookbooks from clubs. They have some of the best recipes that you know real people have made such as lemon bread.
I also have a Grange dessert cookbook from the 70's. It has hundreds of recipes. I wish I could find another one.
