Countless cookbooks! [This this page really needs to be updated with newest acquisitions.] Favourites are those with recipes that produce reliable results - and are tasty. Anything from America's Test Kitchen, Ina Garten, Jacques Pépin and the Podleski Sisters fall into that category.  Some older books have great recipes - but no pictures!! I admit that these days I am more likely to reach for beautifully illustrated books - "food porn" as some say.  Am always adding more here.
