Looking to expand my cookbook and cooking-related-book collection. What books should be in every keen amateur cook's bookcase, /ck/?

your grandparent's cookbook. Any recipe younger than 2 generations probably is shit desu familio. No one needs double stuffed slutty brownies.

I've got the new edition. Pretty sure it's just a small amount of additional content, but somebody may correct me on that.

What kind of fucktard gets book-pattern wallpaper?
Let me guess: they wanted to look smart and well-read without actually owning books or reading them.
>>
>>7355037
Can't help you op. Hope you get a good answer.

All I needed to say was fuck that image. Disgust to the pit of my stomach.

>>7355170
I didn't notice that! Just googled "bookcase" and chose one at random. Now I feel ashamed
>>7355118
Cool, will get the new one then.
>>7355104
Thanks for the recommendations

>>7355037

Your image has triggered me harder than anything else I've seen on /ck/.

Is it just the same handful of books in every cubby hole, or is it a handful of volumes just haphazardly thrown into a bookshelf?

The Flavor Bible

I have all three and I tend to use HTCE the most. It has a shit ton of recipes and useful ideas for substitutions and variations, I usually try and cross reference recipes I find online with it just to see if it is a bit nutty. I feel like it gives me some better insight to do this

A Girl Called Jack

Y'all will probably hate her because she is full on tumblr but she has amazing budget recipes.

You are safe anon, calm down.
It's a wallpaper.

I like AGCJ. Really admire how she went from literally nothing after being laid off to being a published writer, despite the tabloid press tearing her a new one every other day
