looking for best selection of food books?

french roast | Aug 4, 2007 11:19 PM

I am in a position where I need to do lots of research on different foods, dishes, cultures, etc. (lucky me!) Of course, between reading and eating, I'll choose eating. But, there are many times when I need to do some research without a fork in hand. Does anyone have a favorite store and/or library for food books? Recipe and "how-to" books are great, but also food culture, history, and theory type books are great, too. Or, is there a chain bookstore with a particularly good food section? I look online a lot, of course, but there's nothing like flipping through an actual book...
