Farm journal cookbooks were my all time favorites. Now I have some great vegetable cookbooks. I just checked out Lorna Sass Whole Grains and it is amazing.

My Favorite cookbook, Simply French, Patricia Wells. This book is about the cooking of Joel Robuchon.
I have several recipies I use from this cookbook, and I’m usually content if a book has one keeper. Instructions are very good and well laid out. All are introduced with an explanation regarding a technique or an ingredient and it’s impact on the final result


22 Kerry

My favorite cookbook is the Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook, it’s a basic cookbook that I refer to time and again and I have had several editions of it. A great book for beginners and it would make a great shower gift for a new bride/bridegroom.

My favourite cookbook in my collection has to be The Essential Asian Cookbook. I love Asian cuisine, and this book has a recipe for everything I could possibly want to make, with pictures and nutritional information for each recipe. Sadly, the one I have is now out of print.


31 LuAnn Morgan

My favorite cookbook would have to be an older fundraising/community book that sits on my shelf. It was created more than 40 years ago by a group called the Crab Creek Cacklers, a group of women who got together in the days of the coffee klatch. My husband’s mother and the women from his childhood neighborhood were members of the club and their recipes are on the pages.
