    What's your favourite cookbook?

    I'm not sure if this topic has been discussed before, but I was repacking my bookshelf today and was going through my collection of cookbooks.

    I kept having that "Aaah!" feeling each time I came across a favourite that I hadn't used or looked at for a while.

    Jean reccomended a couple of cookbooks in her book which I am unfamiliar with and am keen to take a look at.

    Anyone have any favourites they would like to share? I'll start!

    I love Modern Classics by Donna Hay (it's Australian) and The Cook's Garden by the Australian Womens Weekly magazine.

    The second one doesn't have many recipes but it has lots of information about growing seasonal vegetables at home and how to prepare, cook and preserve them once they've grown. Thinking about eating is a very motivating way to garden!

    Mu husband is the one who usually finds good ones and shares them with me. a great find lately is Chef Kathleen (can't remember the exact title, something like cooking healthy with chef kathleen).

    she has good recipes and I especially like her overall advice and outlook. She draws heavily from her own experience but shares it in a way that doesn't distract.

    Great topic!

    My favorite cookbook author, far and away, is Mollie Katzen (who wrote the first Moosewood cookbook, as well as The Enchanted Brocolli Forest -- which, in my opinion, is her best).

    I also like all of the cookbooks in the Moosewood series, as well as Laurel's Kitchen.

    Yum.

    i'm digging How it all Vegan and the Garden of Vegan books. yummy recipes, most of them very easy, and without a bazillion ingredients. because if it's not simple, my eyes glaze over. heh.

    I'll probably get razzed for this - but I really love the Barefoot Contessa series!

    this is more of a "book that happens to also have recipes in it", but I just read "Home Cooking" by Laurie Colwin and really really enjoyed it. I believe that it's actually a compilation of her columns that originally appeared in Gourmet.
