Library sale – not a good harvest :-(Posted: April 4, 2009 | Author: admin | Filed under: Cookbooks | Leave a comment »
We had a library sale at the San Leandro Public Library this morning, and I can’t believe how badly I fared cookbook wise. There were barely any good cookbooks, and pretty much nothing ethnic/international. What I ended up buying was:
China Moon Cookbook
Modern Chinese cuisine from a now-defunct San Francisco restaurant
Ghirardelli Original Chocolate Cookbook
The Ghirardelli Factori Store is close to our home and we shop there all the time. I’ve seen this cookbook there and have been tempted to buy it – now I got it for less than $1 🙂
A Feast of Scotland
I hesitated in buying this cookbook as it’ll be many years before I get to the “S” cuisines, but you never know when I’ll want to celebrate some Scottish festival.
and a non-cookbook
Feeding a Yen: Savoring Local Specialties, from Kansas City to Cuzco
I’m not particularly big on food writing, but I thought I’d give this one a try, specially as it could give me ideas of dishes to try.
