A fascinating article highlighting some rather famous foodies cookbooks of choice as written up in the NY Times.
Its funny but I don’t own any of the cookbooks on the most popular list (as selected 4 or more times), except The Joy of Cooking:
Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child, Louisette Bertholle, Simone Beck
On Food and Cooking by Harold McGee
The Joy of Cooking (1964 or older) by Irma S. Rombauer
The Cake Bible By Rose Levy Beranbaum
The Classic Italian Cookbook by Marcella Hazan
Simple French Food by Richard Olney
The Escoffier Cookbook and Guide to the Fine Art of Cookery by Auguste Escoffier
Anything by Paula Wolfert
Hmmm. I think its time to go cookbook shopping again.
