The Best Cookbooks of All Time

Updated on April 14, 2012

Not everybody can become the next Gordon Ramsay, opening restaurants around the world with highly acclaimed food.  However, this does not mean you cannot make delicious meals in your own kitchen. It takes a great amount of time in order to become confident enough in your own skills to start creating your own recipes. Thankfully, cookbooks have been around since the dawn of time, giving you the ability to create world class recipes without the time intensive requirement of creating your own dishes. The only problem is deciding which cookbooks offer the best recipes.

Mastering the Art of French Cooking

Mastering the Art of French Cooking is a classic cookbook containing over five hundred recipes. Quality is always better than quantity, however the recipes in this cookbook are of the highest quality. Furthermore, Mastering the Art of French Cooking is more than just a standard cookbook. It is far more than just another list of recipes. Inside the book you will find advice and tips for picking your ingredients, techniques for handling the ingredients, and instructions for how to most effectively use your tools. This cookbook goes beyond the cookbook status and helps you to create better meals. You will also find that it provides suggestions for drinks and side dishes which properly accompany each of the entrees inside the book.

On Food and Cooking

If you fancy yourself a decent cook who is trying to take their recipes to the next level, you owe it to yourself to check out Stephen McGee's book, On Food and Cooking. This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the purpose of each ingredient in the recipes. It will help you to take that critical next step from a boring cook to the person on the block who is able to create their own delicious recipes. With On Food and Cooking you will no longer have to mindlessly follow recipes made by other people. You will begin to understand the roles that different ingredients play and how you can mix those ingredients together to create exquisite dishes.

The I Hate to Cook Book

Cooking is not for everybody, but it is something that most people have to do at some point in their life. The I Hate To Cook Book takes a whimsical approach to cooking that helps it appeal to those who have never enjoyed the art of cooking. With The I Hate To Cook Book, you can go from being afraid of the kitchen to creating high quality dishes which are loved by everybody. The author of this cookbook understands that not everyone is a master chef, and takes pains to make sure that even novices will be able to create the dishes.
