Seeing as my knife buying is on hiatus for a bit (really just because I'm struggling to justify buying more, as much as I'd love to), I figured it's been a while since I picked up a new cook book.
Added a few beauties to my humble collection, some old, some recent, some used, some new. Anyways, I'm hard pressed to pick a favorite but I tend to gravitate towards a certain few - "Izakaya, the Japanese pub cookbook" when I just want something to read, Coco or Alinea when I want some mind-boggling food porn and Fergus Henderson's Nose-to-tail II for breads and such.
I've already become attached to one of my most recent acquisitons called "Grandma Grandpa Cook", it tells the stories of 40odd grandparents in china; their youth, their families and, of course, their treasured recipes. Just a beautifully printed and written book.
So there you go. I'm sure there must be a few members here with insane collections, so please share your favorites, and feel free to post pics
