First sign of a good cookbook: You check it out not once, not twice, but three times from the library.
Second sign of a good cookbook: You read the introduction and immediately add it to your Amazon wishlist.
Third sign of a good cookbook: You find yourself wanting to share this book with all the wonderful cooks you know.
Fourth sign of a good cookbook: You write a blog post about the book.
Fifth sign of a good cookbook: You discover that all you really need to do to share it is to list the table of contents...How to Use This Book and Begin Improvising...The Creative Mind-Set...Learning What Goes With What...Some Classic Flavor Affinities...Making Flavors Come to Life: Salt and Other Absolutely Essential Seasonings...The Essential Pantry: Long-Keeping Ingredients as Opportunity...Some Strategies for Improvising....
Sixth sign of a good cookbook: You find that you are so impatient to stop writing about the book and to start trying it out that you abruptly stop right in the middle of your post and hit publish....
I'd really like to read more cookbooks like this. Any recommendations?
