Here's the top ten:

1 - French Men Cookbook (Richard Olney)
2 - French Provincial Cooking (Elizabeth David)
3 - Book of Jewish Food (Claudia Roden)
4 - Kitchen Diaries (Nigel Slater)
5 - Roast Chicken & Other Stories (Simon Hopkinson)
6 - English Food (Jane Grigson)
7 - Thai Food (David Thompson
8 - Classic Italian Cookbook (Marcella Hazan)
9 - Sichuan Cookery (Fuchsia Dunlop)
