The Good Cook

Phil Laurie | Apr 14, 2001 01:49 PM

The good cook was a series Published by Time Life in the late 70's early 80's, it was edited, and in the most part written by Richard Olney. I am trying to build a collection of all its volumes, not exactly a chore as purchasing cook books, especially second hand ones is a major pre-occupation in my life, not to say financial drain. However I cannot find a list of all the volumes in the series, which is off and on annoying the hell out of me. 1 believe there where 27 published over six years.

Does anyone have such a thing, or indeed own the set and be inclined to put me out of my misery by posting it here ?

Is anyone else engaged on this foolish errand ?
If you are, it may be of interest that nearly every Oxfam bookshop ( I live in London ) has copies. I also find that single copies are almost invariably Cold Starters.

Thanks in advance
