Cook the books


I can’t be the only one who has cookbooks just for the pictures, can I?


Charlie Trotter: these were my first “pornfood” cookbooks. Close up shots of food, expertly retouched, and oh so drool-worthy.


These gorgeous Duguid/Alford books read more like travel books. Incredible pictures of the land, the people; more than just collections of recipes, these are a window into a faraway culture. IMG_1761

Of course, some of mine are just silly. I collect wild game cookbooks, and this one’s title made it hard to resist.

Serious, classic reference books like Larousse are well thumbed from my cooking days

New classics from Michael Ruhlman, whose writing and attention to detail is awe-inspiring.
