I would really like Culinary Artistry and have left notes around....since it has to be ordered (not in stock anywhere around here), I'm not holding my breath.

Here's my list:

“Let the Flames Begin”, Chris Schlesigner and John Willoughby
“The Professional Pastry Chef”
“The Sausage Making Cookbook”, Jerry Predika, ISBN 0-8117-1693-7
“Game Care and Cookery”, Sam and Nancy Fudala, ISBN 0-87354-155-6
“Venison Cookbook”, A. D. Livingstone, ISBN 0-8117-2594-4
“Wild About Game”, Janie Hobler, ISBN 0-7678-0152-5
“Uncommon Fruits and Vegetables”, Elizabeth Schneider, ISBN 0-688-16064-6
“The Art of Mexican Cooking”, Diana Kennedy, ISBN 0-553-05706-5
“Dinosaur Barbeque”, John Stage and Nancy Radke
“The French Laundry Cookbook”, Thomas Keller
“Charcuterie”, by Michael Ruhlman and Brian Polcyn, ISBN 0-393-05829-8
“Mexican Kitchen”, Rick Bayless, ISBN 0-684-80006-3
or the following themes:
Game meats
Indian/Asian
Middle Eastern
North African
Caribbean
Mexican/Latin American
Polynesian/Pacific Islands
Desserts
Oriental
Diabetic recipes, especially desserts
BBQ (I already have “Thrill of the Grill” and “License to Grill”)
Anything to do with raising and using chili peppers.
Charcuterie - curing and preserving meats

The books listed by title, author, and ISBN are listed on abebooks.com as a "want". Whenever a bookseller registers a book that matches my search criteria, I get an email that a book has been found. This website is a good source for old, out-of-print, and rare books. Be advised that the out-of-print and rare books will likely cost $$$$$$.

"BBQ (I already have “Thrill of the Grill” and “License to Grill”)"

AllenOK, I recently got two great ones. "How To Grill" by Steven Raichlen, and "Grilling America" by Rick Browne. I bought them to give away as presents, but have decided to keep them.

Any cookbook added to my growing collection is GREAT. I also have two James Patterson books that I NEED.
