Death of a cookbook

Paulustrious | Sep 9, 2009 09:20 AM

The Internet is now my recipe go-to place. A YouTube video is worth a thousand pictures. The books I buy now are more readable tracts, like 'Wild Fermentation', 'Charcuterie' or 'On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen'. Joy of Cooking et al now rest in the basement bookcase alongside 100 Wheatgrass Recipes and The Cuisine of Saskatchewan. The scrapbook has survived.

Has the information age changed your use of cookery books?

Edit: Forgot to mention that a laptop resides permanently on one counter.
