  • southerncooker  on  June 25, 2014

    That's a hard question for me since I love so many of my cookbooks. Usually when I'm asked this question I say it's my latest addition that I'm cooking from at the moment and in this case it's The New Midwestern Table by Amy Thieland.

  • JodieE  on  June 25, 2014

    Stephanie Alexander's Cook's companion. It's my go to kitchen bible but even better now that there's an accompanying App!

  • NikkiK  on  June 25, 2014

    Didn't realise Rafflecopter wanted my username – oops! I gave my full name. Anyway my favourite cookbook has to be Appetite by Nigel Slater – I still keep returning to it, 10 years on.

    Hard to imagine EYB members having only one favourite cookbook 🙂 But one of mine is Mireille Johnston's Complete French Cookery Course because she helped me learn to cook classic French food without fuss.

  • Berryd  on  June 26, 2014

    Hard to choose one. Locking Curtis Stone's What's for Dinner right now.

  • Kp101  on  June 26, 2014

    Too many faves to pick just one, so I'll give a shout out to Cat Cora's Classics with a Twist, which was a gift (I'd never heard of her) and surprised me by the sheer number of successes. Many family favorites in those stained pages.

  • alisonkc  on  June 26, 2014

    My favorite is the Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, followed closely by Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone.

    The America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook

  • EGod  on  June 26, 2014

    Oh such a difficult question! It was interesting read member's comments too, but I have to go with one of my latest, which is nearly always my favourite, until I move on – hence we love this site to help us 'remember' all the books we've loved before!

    It is therefore:

    Diana Henry's, A Change of Appetite.

    Within in a couple of days and a few more dinners, she might be usurped by:

    Naomi Duguid, Burma Rivers of Flavour.

  • jackermn  on  June 26, 2014

    I have a number I love but for quick, tasty meals, I always turn to the Monday to Friday Cookbook by Michele Urvater.

  • robinj  on  June 26, 2014

    I'm very fickle about cookbooks, but if you judge by what I am cooking from this week, it's Mark Bittman's VB6 cookbook, which I just got. If you judge by wear and tear, its the Cooking for Two series by Cook's Illustrated.

  • overground  on  June 26, 2014

    The Great Meat Cookbook by Bruce Aidells

  • Imalinata  on  June 26, 2014

    The Savory Way, by Deborah Madison, though I have passion for a very long list of cookbooks!

  • jenniesb  on  June 26, 2014

    Any of the "Books for Cooks" cookbooks. A wonderfully curated selection of recipes from staff members of the great Books for Cooks store in Notting Hill.

  • Foodfann  on  June 26, 2014

    I don't have one favorite cookbook, but I use Madhur Jaffrey's World of the East an awful lot and a few of the recipes are in my absolute favorite category. Also, I was a friend of one of her daughters back when I was in college and she was a great cook too!

  • Emilyscookbooks  on  June 26, 2014

    I have close to 250 cookbooks so I would n e hard pressed to pick one – but today my three favorites are
    a) cookshelf thai.
    b) Persian cooking for a healthy kitchen
    c) the spice cookbook

  • kimtrev  on  June 26, 2014

    Very hard to choose! One of my favorites, though, is definitely Dede Wilson's Wedding Cake book

  • boardingace  on  June 26, 2014

    My favorite cookbook of the day (lol) is King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking, because I just had their Currant-Walnut Sourdough Bread and it was amazing!

  • ellabee  on  June 26, 2014

    The Vegetarian Epicure by Anna Thomas; it's the book that I used most starting out cooking (with a Joy of Cooking as backup reference).

  • Suirauqa  on  June 26, 2014

  • kbennall  on  June 27, 2014

    Oh jeez, that's why I use this site – not to choose! But the one I use the most lately is probably the I Quit Sugar cookbook. Terrible name, great recipes.

    1000 Vegan Recipes by Robin Robertson

  • CC22003  on  June 27, 2014

    I have 300+ cookbooks and twice as many food magazines. It would definitely be a problem picking a favourite. For sentimental reasons I would say, The Joy of Cooking, since it was a wedding gift from my brother and the title definitely describes what I feel any time I step into my kitchen to cook or bake something for the people most dear to me.

    My favorite cookbook is Rose Levy Beranbaum's "The Cake Bible" – We've used it so much since it was first published that the pages are falling out.

  • Rinshin  on  June 28, 2014

    A Japanese Cooking Simple Art – this book is classic Japanese cookbook that teaches one how to make Japanese foods. Not contemporary, but great foundation cookbook.

  • jlemoine  on  July 2, 2014

    The Whitewater Cooks series by Shelley Adams out of Nelson BC.

  • lsgourmet  on  July 3, 2014

    As I read the other comments I could have chosen almost any of the cookbooks they suggested, because it depends on what I'm in the mood to cook and when. But thinking about it, the book I find myself picking up when I'm not sure what I want to cook is the old reliable New York Times International Cookbook. It provides a starting point and while I may decide to look into another cookbook for a more authentic recipe, it gets me going in the right direction.

  • ChessiePique  on  July 3, 2014

    Many of them are my favorite, and it depends on which day you ask me. I'm going to say that overall, Deborah Madison's Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone is the book to take to a desert island.

  • bohfive  on  July 3, 2014

    My favourite: Eric Gower's Breakaway Cook. Simple steps to amazing output 🙂

  • Nancith  on  July 3, 2014

  • Keltonsmom  on  July 4, 2014

    My favorite cookbook is "Trim Healthy Mama". I sure hope you'll index it soon! Thanks for the chance to win.

  • alicebrody  on  July 4, 2014

    The Splendid Table Lynn Rossetto Kasper, though Marcella Hazan's are equal favorites

  • krobbins426  on  July 5, 2014

  • sarah.draper  on  July 10, 2014

    My favourite is definitely Smitten Kitchen Cookbook… right now at least!

  • Jerry77360  on  July 10, 2014

    I have several hundred cookbooks, so my favorite at any given moment is the one in which I found the best recent recipe I have used.

  • Stephen_Dunn  on  July 10, 2014

    Time and time again, I return to the excellently selected recipes in the range of 'Books for Cooks' series: 'One Year at Books for Cooks No2' is a definite favourite of mine. This compact annual series of books has served me as a way of getting a range of scrumptious recipes from different cooks, They have inspired me and delighted and even dazzled some of my guests! That said, it remains to be seen whether as a newly signed up member of EYB, I change this habit. EYB is such a very seductive recipe tool,it revives forgotten favourites and unravels hidden treasures I hope it won't divorce me completely from my old faithful friends!

  • rahiscock  on  July 10, 2014

    My favourite cookbook is the one I use most, and that is Veggiestan by Sally Butcher. Have just bought her other cookbooks, so hopefully they are as great!

  • br22  on  July 10, 2014

    I love lots of my cookbooks but a recurrent favorite seems to be Yotam Ottolenghi & Sami Tamimi's Jerusalem. Paula Wolfert's The Food of Morocco is a close second…in third place is Andreas Viestad's Where Flavor was Born which is tied with Ana Sortun's Spice.

    Hard to pick a favourite…but my most used book is one of my first. The Rebar Cookbook. Used to live in Victoria BC and frequent the restaurant. I'm not a vegetarian but I've made most things in this book! I've even considered buying a second copy because my original is falling apart….

    With a few hundred cookbooks picking a favourite is going to be impossible, but for today, I'm going to choose … The Flavour Thesaurus, which, technically isn't a cookbook, but provides me with constant inspiration when I feel experimental.

    I'd have to go with River Cottage Everyday, by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. So many delicious things in that book!

  • margaretahall  on  July 26, 2014

    My favorite cookbook is still Perfect Pasta, by Valentina Harris. It was one of my first two cookbooks, and more dishes from that book made it into my regular cooking rotation than from any other.

    a Pinch of This, a Handful of That

  • murdock37  on  July 26, 2014

    I have so many wonderful cookbooks that I really don't know which to choose so I'm going to go with an old one. The cookbook that I probably have cooked from more than any other (combined with its follow up cookbooks) would have to be the original Moosewood Cookbook along with the international version Sundays at Moosewood. While I am not a vegetarian I found so many amazing recipes in the series that died-in-the-wool carnivores didn't even complain about!
