This one breaks best recipes down by Parish in Louisiana. I have found some real gems in this cook book.

For somewhat unique yet fantastic recipes, I enjoy these twos:

As someone mentioned, On Cooking is a great technique and ingredient tutorial.

It was done as a FFA project to raise money. Just a crap load of country cooking recipes. It is supposedly every families favorite, best, or most liked foods


I have several of these types, from church fundraisers, boyscout things, etc. they are fun to read.

There is an e-recipe book compiled by this guy who calls himself "Rat". I don't think that is his real name. Anyhow, it is a compendium of recipes from a plethora of self proclaimed experts in Cooking Good Grub. All of them but one seem to have their act together and I really like it.

Here is a link to it

The cover art hasn’t changed since its first publishing back in the early 1980’s, and everyone with family recipes in it says that’s exactly what their grandmother and mom looked like back then.

By the way, I'll be adding at least 56 new recipes to the book in January. Post some more good ones if you want them in there.

I lost it in Katrina and was surprised that I was able to find and still find it on Amazon.

I have so many cookbooks it's hard to name a favorite. I collected about 1,000, most of them through my garage sale addiction. I rarely follow a recipe exactly, but I like to have these for reference.

Some of the ones I value most are "fusion" cookbooks, like the New Orleans Italian Cookbook or Bayou Wok, which was published by the Chinese Presbyterian Church and contains recipes from the Wong brothers (Trey Yuen), Miss Shirley (Royal China) and House of Lee. I also have a New Orleans/Sonoran (Mexico) cookbook.

I also like cookbooks that are self-published, because they usually have very "homey" recipes.

I have one that my grandma picked up at a yardsale from the 1840's. its honestly a little hard to read with the old style language and conversions, everything is measured in drams, etc.

I wonder if a hundred years from now language will have evolved enough that people will thing that when they read the cookbooks of today. They'll probably be nothing but emoji's and hybrid words by then anyway.

They probably will wonder what the hell are cups and ounces.
