"My newest cookbook buy. It has flat breads from all around the world, America, Europe, Middle and Far East. Along with each bread is given recipes for great sounding dishes to serve with the bread. I tried the Cascabel Chile Salsa and we loved it. I can't wait to try some of the other dishes. I recommend this book highly."
"Fashionable Food--Seven decades of Food Fads,"
Here is a book that I highly recommend for some fun history of American food fads since the 1920s up to the present. I recognize many of the recipes as ones my grandmother and mother prepared and kept copies of over the years. I see that it's available at Amazon, Enjoy! It's really a hoot if you're around my age.
"SAUCES Classical and contemporary sauce making "
A fine and thorough 504 page hard cover book. Just about everything you ever wanted to know about making sauces. An excellent book for the serious cook.
A terrific book ! I you want to get "Back to the Earth" this is for you.
A HUGE 858 page, soft cover book, loaded with recipes, methods and stories of the way things used to be. Absolutely the best food "How-to" book I own.

If your a Novice or even a Pro at sausage making and curing meats, You should have this book on your shelf. A 502 page hard cover book covering just about everything you'll need to know. It's actually a technical book, but well written so that the layman can understand it. Loaded with recipes and techniques to get you started making great sausages, and more. BTW, this book IS used in teaching classes at many Culinary schools.

The Fish & Seafood is especially good. It even has a salmon recipe from an Indian scout who is a guide for fishing trips. They are compiled by the editors and Readers of Harrowsmith Magazine.
I like them because if you have all 5 of them you would have an excellent collection of recipes sent in by people from all over the U.S. and Canada. Because of the diversity of sources, many of the recipes are regional and they vary from health food type recipes to gourmet type food. They cover every category you could think of.
Hi! This is only my second post, but I visit this site every day and love it. I think this is a great idea to share our favorite cookbooks and I thought I'd share mine. Since I only bake (I'm not a good cook) my favorite baking books are above. .
I collect cookbooks and have many more favorites, but I recommend these
to start with. I'm looking forward to learning everyone else's favorites too!
. My friend bought one and I just had to have one too! My copy is dog-eared and the cover is falling off. In the front are color pictures of every recipe along with preparation time or when to start (i.e.,early in the day, 3 hours before, etc.) Then in the actual recipes themselves the instructions are numbered step-by-step along with drawings to illustrate the steps. This cookbook is how I actually began to learn to really cook!
