Five Cookbooks every cook should own!

All You Can Books, top picks for cooking books

Cooking is a science as much as it is an art. But more than that, cooking is fun, and it’s accessible to all, whether you’re a Michelin-star chef or a disaster-prone mess in the kitchen.

That’s why there are quite a few beloved personalities who have put the joy of cooking into words. No, we’re not talking about cookbooks, but rather books about cooking—books that describe the freedom, philosophy, and art of putting together something tasty.

Let us look at the top picks by All You Can Books:

The Khaki Kook Book | Mary Kennedy Core

We cannot ignore the fact that we must eat, and that much as we dislike to acknowledge it, we are compelled to think a great deal about filling our stomachs. This is especially true these days, when prices have soared and soared and taken along with them, far out of the reach of many of us, certain articles of food which we heretofore have always felt were quite necessary to us.

About ten years ago the idea of writing a little cookbook had its birth. The author was in Almora that summer. Almora is a station far up in the Himalayas, a clean little bazaar nestles at the foot of enclosing mountains. Dotting the deodar-covered slopes of these mountains are the picturesque bungalows of the European residents while towering above and over all are the glistening peaks of the eternal snows.

The people of India since Vedic times have eaten curry and always will.

365 Foreign Dishes |

Starters, main courses and desserts from around the world, one dish for every day of the year. From Turkey to China, from India to England, from Austria to Egypt, a wide variety of mouth-watering cuisines are represented.

Each recipe is described in one short paragraph, making this book perfect for dipping into when you’re seeking inspiration on what to cook.

Cassell's Vegetarian Cookery | A. G. Payne

This is a little cookbook of vegetarian recipes, which was gaining popularity in England at the time of its publication.

The recipes are all very clearly described, and any modern listener should be able to try them out if any of them strike their fancy.

A Poetical Cook-Book | Maria J. Moss

This is an interesting mix of recipes and poetry about cookery and food. The author has written this book during and in the aftermath of the civil war in the United States. The recipes are sound and can be used still today, and the poetry is an interesting collection of short excerpts and poems by all famous poets.

The Story of a New Zealand River

The Story of a New Zealand River by Jane Mander

The Story of a New Zealand River by Jane Mander

“This is the land of the lost, one of those happy spots where no questions are asked. Of course, the fact of a person’s being here is usually all the explanation necessary.” The Story of a New Zealand River is a romance set in the Northland region of New Zealand, in the time when the forests of New Zealand’s grandest tree, the kauri, were being logged for their exquisite timber. The novel begins as Alice Roland and her free-spirited daughter Asia are being rowed in a black punt by handsome and cultured David Bruce up the Kaipara harbour to their new home at a raw kauri logging settlement in a bend of the Kaiwaka river. Tom Roland, a rough colonial and the boss of the settlement, is Alice’s husband of a few years. Alice is a beautiful but tight-laced, proud, puritanical Englishwoman whose mismatch with Tom Roland is not a happy one. They arrive with Alice’s piano among their belongings to find a half-built cottage, a strange collection of inhabitants, from gentry to scoundrels, and a place that is beautiful and challenging. Jane Mander was a New Zealand novelist and journalist. As well as New Zealand, she also lived in Sydney, New York and London. There is a superficial resemblance between The Story of a New Zealand River and the Jane Campion film The Piano, which is principally the setting and the piano.

Many tales that have become independently famous come from the Book, among them Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, and the voyages of Sinbad the Sailor. This collection comes from the ninth of sixteen volumes translated by Burton.
