Cookbook Stores?

newmarket2 | Sep 2, 201707:05 AM     6

I like bookstores, mostly to be able to browse certain types of books, which is still hard to do online. Coffee-table photo books is one obvious type, but the other type is cookbooks. Over time, I've found most cookbooks I've bought to be disappointing. And the reason is usually that I didn't spend enough time looking them over before buying them. I bought an Indian cookbook and discovered that most of the recipes call for some ingredient that's hard to acquire and (here's the key) didn't offer substitutions. And most book stores that still remain tend to be small and not have a big cookbook section... especially considering the vast number of cookbooks in existence.

So, I'm hoping that someone knows of a cookbook store or a bookstore that has a BIG section. I'd be sure to go if I'm in the area.
