I agree, except that once in a while I feel like doing it. What I find chef's or restaurant cookbooks useful for is inspiration, new flavor combinations, new ingredients, that kind of thing. It woul

That's great news! Out of nowhere the other day, Eden Lipson crossed my mind. Now I know why.

Recently purchased "The SAS World-Wide Restaurant Cookbook." Published in 1960 when the Scandinavian Airlines Systems was considered one of the world's great carriers, this book re-prints famous recipes from the world's finest restaurants during that time period.

 

Thirty-five plus countries and 60 plus cities are represented - the entire flight plan of SAS at the time. It was purchased for $4 at the online thrift shop and it is one of the top cookbooks ever written and published IMO - will be cooking from this for years.

 

Urge everyone to pick up a copy - not just for the recipes but for the intriguing narrative and reviews as well.

 

just purchased for 11 dollars with shipping included...

Five morsels of love is a really nice looking self published book. Haven't really cooked from it. But it looks like a glossy chefs cookbook.

 

There is a Ladakhi cookbook I picked up I think from Kitchen Art&Letters. "Ladakhi Kitchen". Super interesting, written by the woman's alliance of Ladakh.  There is a chance I bought in Delhi tho.

Do you have a definitive list of the penguin series

They list 9 books:

Obviously there's at least one missing. 

the north-east is listed twice. the kodava book is so hard to find now even penguin pretends it doesn't exist. though strictly not in the same series, i tend to think of the calcutta cookbook, kashmiri cooking and flavours of delhi as effectively part of it. indeed, kashmiri cooking is part of that 4-pk they list at the end (along with two others that are not officially part of the series, and which i have not read).

If you have $506, I found a copy of the Kodava book.

i have $506 but i am not crazy.

my friend prachi has a copy and says she's never cooked from it. i will be stealing it from her the next time i'm in calcutta.

Anyone have this book?  

It made a lot of the top ten 2020 blah blah blah cookbook lists. Edd is a winner of that show everyone seems to love - The Great British Baking Show, and which I must get around to watching at some point.

But the thing that really intrigues me, and which I wish ALL cookbook authors would do, is the measurements for all the recipes included are in metric, imperial, AND volume. How nice is that!
