Gift season approaches: What cookbooks are people looking at?

Westy | Nov 12, 2007 05:46 AM

Went to B&N yesterday. I saw a couple of books that just came out:

1. Susan Spicer (New Orleans-style cooking). Looked good. Definitely not Wednesday night cooking, but looked like a great book for entertaining.

2. Cook by Jamie Oliver. as ever, really practical. Is it just me though, or are his recipes getting less and less simple? I have a couple of his older books that I reach for to use. I reach for his new stuff and just read.

3. Kitchens of Biro: Interesting, but no way in heck am i going to make any of it Too complicated. I have only had mixed results from his first cookbook.

4. Jean-gearge V has a new Asian cookbook. Very good. i suspect it is similar to his other books: Some very straightforward (and great) rcipes with a couple of all-day shopping and cooking ones thrown in.

What else is out there?
