>reading books

is this the 1700's

My mom gave me her copy. I should do some stuff but at the moment I am obsessed with Mexican cooking.

What are your favorite recipes?
Has anybody read "How to Cook Everything" by Bittman? Would anyone recommend it over Joy of Cooking?

Also I've been reading Joe Yonan's "Cooking for One" and I've been enjoying it. I might buy it and use it since I am living alone.

My biggest issue right now is menu planning for the week and building a pantry. Any books or ideas on how to go about it?

My copy of How to Cook Everything is stained and dogeared. Joy of Cooking is like new. YMMV.
I have it. They're different. I'd go with the Bittmann if you are just a neckbeard trying to improve your life, JoC if you are trying to actually "get into cooking"
>McGee, On Food and Cooking

A thousand times this.
He realized 3star fine dining was pretentious bullshit. Probably cooks rustic food that tastes 10 times better than any bullshit he made in a 3 star kitchen

>needing a stove to cook
If you want to learn how to cook like a professionally trained chef, this is the book you start with.
is joy of cooking the only good book on american cuisine?
This one's pretty pleb-tier, but I do like the cookie and candy recipes in it. They're really basic but give some good basic recipes to reference and adjust to your own personal tastes. Make sure to get the old version though, they have an updated version which got changed.

Fuchsia Dunlop's books on Chinese cuisine are pretty good
I have the second edition. It's REALLY dense, I've only tried two recipes so far but they were great. Would not really recommend to casuals though.
Nah, he's just using knorr for everything.
I think everyone's mom had one of these when they were a kid
