Cookbook 101: List Some Fundamental Cookbooks (Suggestions Needed)

claritas | Jan 29, 201208:09 AM

Hello all.

I am in the process of starting a cookbook collection. In the past, I was content with the internet as my only source of recipe-finding. Now I would like to build my own collection of more reliable and tested recipes. I expect that cookbooks will help me do this.

I have set out to get encyclopedic, comprehensive, all-purpose cookbooks with lots of recipes (the more recipes, the better). I live in Canada so I am looking for cookbooks centered on North American recipes. Note that I said 'centered'. Some cookbooks will have 'international' sections and recipes and these are fine with me.

What, in your opinion/experience, are some fundamental cookbooks that can serve as foundational for the home cook?
