Archive for the ‘Cookbooks’ Category

I wouldn’t say I’m the biggest fan of Gordon Ramsay’s (I’d probably have to eat in his restaurants to really appreciate him), but I do like watching Kitchen Nightmares from time to time – even though the program is all in all pretty repetitive. Anyway, I saw Ramsay’s cookbook (Gordon Ramsay’s Fast Food) at the […]

Burmese cooking

I just got a message about this new Burmese cookbook: hsa*ba, Burmese cookbook. hsa*ba means “please eat” in Burmese (is that the name of the language?). I haven’t seen the book, but as there aren’t many books on Burmese cooking, I thought I’d mention it. The website also has some Burmese recipes. My cooking page […]

Library sale time!

This morning we had another library sale, and as usual I bought a bunch of cookbooks. Cookbooks that I have nowhere to put in my house (what a convoluted sentence).

Today our public library had a sale and I picked up a few cookbooks. They are mostly pretty old (cookbook selection at these sales is never that good) but for $1 for hardbacks and 50-cents for paperbacks, I can’t complain. I got: –La Cuisine Creole A collection of Culinary Recipes, 1956 reprint of 1885 original […]

All About Braising

I found Molly Stevens’ All About Braising at the library a few weeks ago and liked the first couple of recipes so much that I decided to buy the book. I got it for only $11 plus shipping brand new through one of Amazon’s affiliates, which I think it’s quite a bargain. The book has […]
