Cookbook Collection or a Collection of Cookbooks?

26 Jan

I love cookbooks. Only recently did I actually start to read them, like a book. I always used to just look for a recipe, find it, make it and be done with the book. I never really looked at a cookbook as a book, but they are; it’s right there in the name.

When I really started to enjoy cooking and learning new things about cooking I started to buy lots of cookbooks. And I got them as gifts because I guess people liked my cooking and wanted me to cook more, or perhaps they didn’t like my cooking and thought I needed cookbooks to make me a better cook? Either way I love them and have recently started reading them, really reading them and to my surprise there is a lot to learn and not just about cooking but the people who have written them. My new favorite author in the world of cooking is David Lebovitz. I highly recommend you get at least one of his cookbooks; he has great recipes and stories of Paris, what could be better than that? Being in Paris and reading it, I suppose.img_5002

My other favorites are the ones that my Mom gave me. I have her old and tired Fanny Farmer, one she made as a fundraiser for the church and my Great Grandmothers cookbook. It’s fun to read and see the notes that my mother wrote and my Great Grandmother. img_5004After the last few years I have gathered what I now refer to as a collection. And I will keep adding to it. I just wish I had a bookcase in my kitchen because my table isn’t going to hold much more. I will keep buying them and reading them; really reading them to learn, be entertained and hopefully become a better cook!img_5003
