I have a set that consists of 25 to 30 slim magazine sized cookbooks. Each one covers a different country and has many tips and much information as well as recipes. I'm fond of those ones.

History of Memphis cookbook

Mudbug

To give you an idea, the cookbook is put out by Subsidium which is a non profit group that helps deaf children learn how to speak. My mother use to be president of the group several years ago. What happens is Subsidium goes out locally and asks everybody to donate their favorite recipe for their cookbook. All the money goes back to the children. I have found many recipes in their that I just love. Their easy and simple.

I have equal love for these additional cookbooks as I do for Julia Child and Jacque Pepin -- but for mostly reading, not cooking.

For everyday cooking, I love -- Dori Sanders Country Cooking, Taste of Country Cooking and In Pursuit of Flavor both by Edna Lewis, and The Welcome Table by Jessica B. Harris.

I don't think I have a favorite cookbook. I have over a thousand of them. Collecting has always been my passion. I know what I do have though. Favorite recipes from lot's of favorite cookbooks.
