Favorite Cookbooks

Most of my cookbooks are packed away for a move. What is your favorite 5 cookbooks?

Mine in no order:

Cook's Illustrated The New Best Recipe.

Dean & DeLuca Cookbook

Taste: One Palate's Journey Through the World's Greatest Dishes

The Frugal Gourmet (and FG Cooks Three Ancient Cuisines)

Mrs. Chiang's Szechwan Cookbook


I just scored The Escoffier Cookbook for $4 at the local bookstore. Haven't had a chance to read through it yet.

Cook's Illustrated The New Best Recipe. - Great book. That's where I got the bagel recipe when I made bagel dogs last year and posted pics.
Joy of Cooking - somewhat old fashioned, but it is comprehensive. The index is 70 pages long, which is awesome.
The Craft of the Cocktail: Everything You Need to Know to Be a Master Bartender

Other than that, I just like to find recipes online.

can you guys recommend a cookbook for someone who has no idea what he's doing? i've been wanting to learn how to truly cook, but i'm not just talking about a handful of recipes. i want to learn everything from the correct way to take apart a chicken to cutting techniques to how to braise, etc.

My favourite cook books are Marcella Hazan, Fuchsia Dunlop, Jane Grigson, Nigel Slate. I usually do cooking by reading from these books.
