Cookbook - limited ingredients available

supergoldie | May 15, 2012 04:20 PM

Hi, I am living outside of the US somewhere that the more exotic ingredients are rare or very expensive. I'm not limited to total basics, but I have had a hard time finding things ranging from Sorrel, shitake mushrooms to non string cheese mozzerella, and have a very hard time finding affordable meat or non farmed fish.

I have found myself repeating meals a lot here, and I have with me a few all purpose books (Joy of cooking! Nyt cookbook!) they are sometimes not totally inspiring. I want to buy myself a cookbook - restaurant or cuisine based whose ingredient lists that wont leave me sighing. I already have indian cookbooks and it is not really possible to find the ingredients for east/south east asian cooking here. I was thinking greek? Spanish? Or a great restaurant cookbook that doesn't have a lot of red meat/ unusual ingredients? Thanks
