This is some of my cooking books library. Article by Jeannine Lawall with the beautiful display, inspired me to share my library. I am proud to say, I have used every book for either recipes or inspiration. Unfortunately, some pages have greasy marks to prove it! Everything is in order by regions. Empty bottles, referred to as "Graveyard of sunken ships", are from either restaurants around Europe and Australia or from dinners parties at our home. We have grand collection of them and rotate them regularly. Books by famous chefs are also signed by them. Most of my books do not have pretty picture, a.k.a. "food porn". My most favorite and most used is "French Regional Cooking" by Anne Willan. Very, very informative one! In conclusion I'd like to say that video recipes on YouTube are all good and well, but nothing quite like opening cook book, especially old, well used one. Happy cooking and Bon Appetit!

  • You have a beautiful collection, thank you for sharing it with us! I really like your Graveyard of Sunken Ships! I have a few empty wine bottles from past celebrations stowed away as well - a little something for my kids to wonder about in the future ( perhaps I should include notes?). My very favorite cookbooks are a bit scruffy as well. 🙂

  • That's a nice collection! And I absolutely agree, youtube videos are fine but nothing beats a well written text you can jump around in to the precise information you need.

    Also I love your "Graveyard of sunken ships"!

  • That is quite the collection of cook books. It's a shame that the home library's are quickly becoming a thing of the past, thanks to the digital age.

    • I hope people still keep books 📚 . There's nothing quite like going through old book!

    • I understand! My wife and I still have a sizable book collection but sadly we often run to the digital age. I love homes that have libraries in them.
