    Love this book for many basics show in detail.

    But with over 400 cookbooks it's hard to narrow it down.

    Fergus Henderson - Nose to Tail Eating.
    Simon Hopkinson - Roast chicken and other stories.
    Jane grigson - charcuterie and French pork cookery.

    All great books that turn cooking into a good story.

    Yeah, I should get a Pepin book. I used to watch his TV show all the time and really liked it. There is this one curry dish he made using a pressure cooker, and I have always wanted to try it (once it get a pressure cooker that is).

    huh, apparently my tastes in cookbooks are far more pedestrian than most here, ha ha.

    I still find myself going back to the Joy of Cooking for the most basic things. The other cookbook I use more than any other I own is this hot and spicy one. I dunno, the recipes always turn out, are fairly simple, and it's got beautiful photography.

    This is a great thread--gotta have a window open to place holds at the library while reading it.

    Hard to narrow down--Pepin's "Art of Cooking" or Child's "The Way to Cook" are where I start looking to cook something new. Otherwise it depends on the style of cooking. And they all get scribbled in as recipes get modified.

    I DO have a very favorite coffee table cookbook, although the "Dilly Dip" (the cover recipe) isn't really feasible since I've moved from SE to NW US.

    The Art of Cooking has so many pictures, practically every step has a picture. That's what puts it up there for me.
