What’s on your cookbook shelf?

Many years ago in my newspapering days I interviewed a woman who researched cookbooks throughout history.  She had hundreds … and as many stories to share from Medieval Times to the current century.  A look at someone’s cookbook shelf does give you some inkling of how they eat, don’t you think?

I’m running out of room for cookbooks.  I wean a few every year or so but like most people, I have a handful of faithfuls that I turn to.  Here’s a look at those standbys – The Basics. Nothing very fancy but always rewarding. And that black binder at the bottom? It’s used more than all the rest — hundreds of clippings collected over the years.

How about you?  What are your favorites?
