As I have lurked over the past couple of days, I’ve been impressed by the variety of recipes posted by and the quality of feedback from the members of the community.
So, what kind of cookbooks inspire cooks like these?
I’d like to know!
My faves rotate but right now the top spots in the cookbook shelf are occupied by:
Cookwise by Shirley Corriher
The Betty Crocker Cookbook circa 1968 (1972 reprint)
The Service Cookbook (Volumes 1 & 2) by Ida Bailey Allen
I also like looking up the antique (1920 and before) cookbooks available on the Project Gutenberg website.
