Hi, you guys are making me hungry. I think Christopher Kimball has written The Cooking Bible and The Dessert Bible. Bookshare has Rose Levy Beranbaum's Pie and Pastry Bible, but I advise you that if you download it, there are no ingredients listed for any of the recipes, most likely due to the ingredients may be in the form of images which didn't translate to the text. Very frustrating. I like tomes, though I know it would really be yeoman service to get any of those books written about into the bookshare collection via submission and proofreading. I'd say kudos to anybody who tackled such projects. Regards, Kim Friedman. -----Original Message----- From: bksvol-discuss-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:bksvol-discuss-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Debby Franson Sent: Sunday, December 04, 2011 7:20 PM To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: Best cookbooks How many does Bookshare have Hi Charlene and everyone! Yes, it seems like the books they are choosing in the Top 100 Cookbooks of the Last 25 Years categories for November and December, anyway are mostly real tomes. I don't know if I'd have the patience to scan and fix up the scan of a 600 or 700 page cookbook. I didn't find any of these books on Bookshare that are the December picks either. Here's that list in the category of baking. 1. Classic Home Desserts 2. Pie: 300 Tried-and-True Recipes for Delicious Homemade Pie 3. The Cake Book 4. Great Cookies: Secrets to Sensational Sweets 5. In the Sweet Kitchen: The Definitive Baker's Companion 6. Flour: Spectacular Recipes from Boston's Flour Bakery + Café 7. King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking: Delicious Recipes Using Nutritious Whole Grains Charlene, since you didn't have time to find the list of the General cooking books that were selected for November, I'll find those again too. 1. Martha Stewart?s Cooking School: Lessons and Recipes for the Home Cook 2. The Essential New York Times Cookbook: Classic Recipes for a New Century 3. Real Cooking 4. Gourmet Today 5. Cook with Jamie: My Guide to Making You a Better Cook 6. Radically Simple: Brilliant Flavors with Breathtaking Ease 7. The New Best Recipe 8. How to Cook Everything: 2,000 Simple Recipes for Great Food 9. Ad Hoc at Home So, there are the titles for December and then backtracking to November. Sorry I didn't think to include authors. I was just interested in titles so I could search for them on Bookshare. I think these books are expensive and many of them are huge tomes of 400 or more pages up to over 1,000 pages, though some are in the 200- or 300-page range.. I can keep looking as each month roles around if anyone likes. It's interesting to see what each months picks are in each category.
