Here at Tattered Cover, We All Wait To Get Gerald's Cookbook Recommendations. He's Never Wrong.
"I can hear my Mom ask 'why everybody has to use foul language', but, language aside, anyone who has more than 5 cookbooks, even a Paleovore, should have a vegetarian or vegan cookbook--and this choice has mouth-watering but uncomplicated offerings."

 "A lot of folk who say they hate to cook like to bake.  Honorable mention in this category goes to Baking Chez Moi by one of the best recipe writers ever, Dorie Greenspan."
"However, intriguing savory recipes drew me to give the nod to Pastry by Nick Malgieri, a fine cooking teacher himself."
"Admittedly, very few people need a preserving cookbook, but if the holiday season of the French Laundry taught us anything, it is that cookbooks are sometimes for lusting and reading and learning."

"Mrs. Wheelbarrow's Practical Pantry takes us from "cornichon imposters" to duck fat and preserved meats, Smoked Oyster Chowder and beyond.  It is one of the most intriguing cookbooks to peruse I've seen in a while."
