What type of cookbooks do you collect?

All kinds really. The one I got today is an Irish Pub Cookbook. I have lots of Asian and Mediterranean Cookbooks. Natural foods, Cardiac and Diabetic. Reprints of old cookbooks. If it has a recipe in it it's fair game.

YIPEE....... went to the mailbox today and my Amazon order was there 'FOOD MADE FAST * ASIAN' from William Sonoma. It had so many great reviews I couldn't help myself. Nice hard cover book. The recipes look great can't wait to try some.

Oh-oh, I added 9 cookbooks to my collection today (I couldn't help myself--I stopped to make a donation at a local thrift store--all household books were 70% off...the most I paid for any one book was 60 cents). I snagged the following:

Bernardin's Le grande livre des conserves (The Big Preserves Book)--It has 400 delicious and original recipes, juices, catsups, purees, vinegars. I should have time to translate the recipes I want to try before next year's gardening season rolls around.

Oh, Fudge! by Lee Edwards Benning (this one I bought more for reading than actually making fudge--it has been years since I made candies--something I used to do a lot)

Crazy Plates by Janet and Greta Podleski (Looneyspoons)

Two of Rachel Ray's cookbooks

Two slow cooker cookbooks

A church cookbook from MI that is all cookies (Cookie Walk Recipes--for 15 cents, how could I leave it behind)

And one other, the "Enlightened Eater" (this is one I've been meaning to read for awhile).

I spent $4.45 for the lot of them. Not that I needed them, but...

I know this is heresy in some quarters, but I have too many cookbooks! I just can't seem to part with any of them, though. *sigh*

I love WS cookbooks. Almost never fail. I have the essentials of Asian cooking from WS which I think shares a lot of recipes. It's great. Just watch the soy sauce in the recipes...start with 1/3 and taste....they must be using a different brand then me bc every time I follow the recipes involving soy sauce Its inedible.

Thanks for that tip Siegal, I will be careful. I use low-sodium soy sauce and I will be careful experimenting.
