August 8, 2016

My husband tells me that our next cookbook (on order) will be number 1,000.  Shows what 36 years of insanity will do to a person.  These, along with 36 years of Bon Apetit, Food and Wine and Gourmet (sadly only until about 2010 – I still miss it)  All of this has assisted us in living our mantra “Life is Too Short to Be Bored By Dinner”.
 So much of this information is on line these days, one doesn’t need to be a rabid collector.  It really easy to come up with new ideas, new equipment and new techniques.  Television has helped here.  Particularly PBS.  Classic chefs.  Classic instruction.
My most relied on cookbook authors:  Julia Child, Craig Clairborne, Pierre Franey, Jacques Pepin, Madeline Kamann, Patricia Wells, Marchella Hazan.  For Warner, it begins with The Joy of Cooking and goes to Rhulman’s and Polcyn's Charcuterie and then his grilling and preserving libraries.
And, of course, we are always supervised and critiqued by our feline Julia Child.
