Without a doubt THE BEST cook book is Nigel Slater's 'Kitchen Diaries'. I refer to it time and time again. Its very battered very lovedTracyPS. Lovely blog
we use the Moro cookbooks quite a lot – beautiful rustic real food – and, so far, all the recipes we have tried have been good.they have beautiful photography too, especially Moro East. It follows the life of the East End allotments that Moro restaurant owners Sam & Sam Clark had a plot on – the book is a collection of recipes from them and the friends that they made their, so a real diverse mix from Spain and the Muslim Mediterranean.Unfortunately the allotments were bulldozed in 2007 – 80 plots that provided food for over 150 families and had been used as allotments in this part of London for 100 years – to make way for a path that will be used for 4 weeks only durning the 2012 Olympics. And what is really sad is that there were alternatives that meant the allotments could have stayed.you know, maybe I’ll do a post about this to show you some of the images of the allotments and Moro’s food. I’ll let you know when I do.p.s. sorry if I ended up sending this comment twice.
Delicious. My two housemates are chefs, so I tend to shy away from cooking, but I sure love to look at/drool over the food photography in cook books. Love this blog, btw!
For me, it's Land of Plenty: A Treasury of Authentic Sichuan Cooking by Fuschia Dunlop.
ny times cookbook and larousse gastronomique (more like an encyclopedia all things consumed)

The recipe cards I copied from my mom's and grandma's when I moved out.
I love food & wine's best of the best cookbooks. they do all the work of finding the best recipes from the best cookbooks of that year. I have a few and I love the variety inside.
ps: someone recently told me to check out gwyneth paltrow's blog GOOP. It's actually quite interesting. She has some good recipes.http://goop.com/my uniform...http://goop.com/newsletter/3/en/-lee
i love paula wolfert, and all of her books are true gems. the recipes are inspiring, and her knowledge/obsession with how cultures cook is elevating.having said that, the book i turn to again, and again (sometimes just to read) is Susan H. Loomis's French Farmhouse Cooking. it is Excellent.
I'm a huge fan of the Zuni cookbook. Most people I'm sure feel its over written but because I didn't learn to cook from my fam, I find it quite helpful.
Nigel Slater's Real Food, and funny enough I saw him twice today!! I have Living & Eating too and have made many delicious dishes from it!
When it comes to food I am not minimal(if ever). I love Swedish Mathias Dahlgren http://www.mathiasdahlgren.com/and Turkish Özcan Ozan.I use their recipes often.
All of Tessa Kiros's cookbooks are killer. The names can be silly, but the food is fantastic.
