I am so glad you mentioned How To Cook Everything. I have heard so many chefs say that every kitchen should have The Joy of Cooking and How To Cook Everything.

I had the original JOC when I got married the first time. It is now in a garage that belongs to my son. He inherited it when his father died.

This is probably the most disorganized, poorly written cookbook I've ever owned and I recommend it highly!

http://www.amazon.com/Birdwatchers-C.../dp/039333130X

I enjoy the chatty style of the author, her way of approaching the subject of cooking and life in general. I would not pay full price for it but if you see a copy used pick it up and take a look. I have also read her other books and if you enjoy nature, birdwatching, travel etc... you may enjoy them too.

My favourites -

Julia Child - everything
Alice Medrich* - Cocolat and Chocolate and the art of low fat cooking (both fabulous!)
Alice Waters - Chez Panisse cookbooks
Jeremiah Towers cookbooks
James McNair cookbooks
Food Lover's Guid to Paris - shops, markets, recipes


Saveur magazine has a cookbook. Lots of terrific recipes.


*I've taken classes given by Alice Medrich - a lovely woman.
