Cookbooks --

I get them for techiques rather than recipes. I don't use recipes, but I like to look at techniques.

Recent books are French Cuisine, from CostCo -- mostly French Provencal cooking, basic techniques.

Mediterranian -- also from CostCo. I was looking for Italian, but found this book incorporated the broader spectrum of Greek, Sicilian, Sardinian . . . a point of departure for cooking.

Also a book on herb gardens.

At this point in cooking, I look at "approaches" and ingredients. I never follow a recipe. Nahhhhhhhh, I don't bake. I think baking is about recipes.

But, meat, fish, veggies -- it's about approaches, techniques, styles, regions -- conventions in herbs/spices and protocols in cooking.

Miss Bobo owned a boarding house in Lynchburg, Tennessee from 1908 until she died in 1983 at the age of 101. I've started reading the boarding house cookbook last night & it is filled with wonderful traditional southern recipes. I can't wait to finish reading it & get started on the one about peaches!
