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.

The Joy of Cooking.

Alton Browns book is one of my favorites for basics you can build on. Click here

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