    That's a hard question for me since I love so many of my cookbooks. Usually when I'm asked this question I say it's my latest addition that I'm cooking from at the moment and in this case it's The New Midwestern Table by Amy Thieland.

  • JodieE  on  6/25/2014 at 9:09 PM

    Stephanie Alexander's Cook's companion. It's my go to kitchen bible but even better now that there's an accompanying App!

    Didn't realise Rafflecopter wanted my username - oops! I gave my full name. Anyway my favourite cookbook has to be Appetite by Nigel Slater - I still keep returning to it, 10 years on.

    I'm never good at picking favorites, but Emmanuel Hadjiandreou's How to Make Bread has gotten the most use recently.

  • veronicafrance  on  6/26/2014 at 2:37 AM

    Hard to imagine EYB members having only one favourite cookbook :) But one of mine is Mireille Johnston's Complete French Cookery Course because she helped me learn to cook classic French food without fuss.

  • hillsboroks  on  6/26/2014 at 4:59 AM

    The New Basics Cookbook is still the one I turn to. I used my first paperback copy until it fell to pieces and am now on my second copy plus a used hardback copy I just found at Gooowill.

  • Berryd  on  6/26/2014 at 5:26 AM

    Hard to choose one. Locking Curtis Stone's What's for Dinner right now.

  • Kp101  on  6/26/2014 at 5:52 AM

    Too many faves to pick just one, so I'll give a shout out to Cat Cora's Classics with a Twist, which was a gift (I'd never heard of her) and surprised me by the sheer number of successes. Many family favorites in those stained pages.

  • alisonkc  on  6/26/2014 at 5:56 AM

    My favorite is the Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, followed closely by Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone.

    The America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook

  • EGod  on  6/26/2014 at 10:40 AM

    Oh such a difficult question! It was interesting read member's comments too, but I have to go with one of my latest, which is nearly always my favourite, until I move on - hence we love this site to help us 'remember' all the books we've loved before! It is therefore: Diana Henry's, A Change of Appetite. Within in a couple of days and a few more dinners, she might be usurped by: Naomi Duguid, Burma Rivers of Flavour.

    I have a number I love but for quick, tasty meals, I always turn to the Monday to Friday Cookbook by Michele Urvater.

  • robinj  on  6/26/2014 at 11:04 AM

    I'm very fickle about cookbooks, but if you judge by what I am cooking from this week, it's Mark Bittman's VB6 cookbook, which I just got. If you judge by wear and tear, its the Cooking for Two series by Cook's Illustrated.

    The Savory Way, by Deborah Madison, though I have passion for a very long list of cookbooks!

  • jenniesb  on  6/26/2014 at 12:22 PM

    Any of the "Books for Cooks" cookbooks. A wonderfully curated selection of recipes from staff members of the great Books for Cooks store in Notting Hill.

  • Foodfann  on  6/26/2014 at 12:39 PM

    I don't have one favorite cookbook, but I use Madhur Jaffrey's World of the East an awful lot and a few of the recipes are in my absolute favorite category. Also, I was a friend of one of her daughters back when I was in college and she was a great cook too!

  • Emilyscookbooks  on  6/26/2014 at 12:44 PM

    I have close to 250 cookbooks so I would n e hard pressed to pick one - but today my three favorites are a) cookshelf thai. b) Persian cooking for a healthy kitchen c) the spice cookbook

  • kimtrev  on  6/26/2014 at 3:59 PM

    Very hard to choose! One of my favorites, though, is definitely Dede Wilson's Wedding Cake book

  • boardingace  on  6/26/2014 at 4:51 PM

    My favorite cookbook of the day (lol) is King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking, because I just had their Currant-Walnut Sourdough Bread and it was amazing!

  • ellabee  on  6/26/2014 at 5:52 PM

    I have 300+ cookbooks and twice as many food magazines. It would definitely be a problem picking a favourite. For sentimental reasons I would say, The Joy of Cooking, since it was a wedding gift from my brother and the title definitely describes what I feel any time I step into my kitchen to cook or bake something for the people most dear to me.

    My most splattered book is Marcella Hazan's The Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking. It's the one I always compare ingredient lists and methods to - this and Stephanie Alexander's. They don't leave my kitchen bench top. Pia

  • lsgourmet  on  7/3/2014 at 4:39 PM

    As I read the other comments I could have chosen almost any of the cookbooks they suggested, because it depends on what I'm in the mood to cook and when. But thinking about it, the book I find myself picking up when I'm not sure what I want to cook is the old reliable New York Times International Cookbook. It provides a starting point and while I may decide to look into another cookbook for a more authentic recipe, it gets me going in the right direction.

  • ChessiePique  on  7/3/2014 at 4:50 PM

    Many of them are my favorite, and it depends on which day you ask me. I'm going to say that overall, Deborah Madison's Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone is the book to take to a desert island.

  • bohfive  on  7/3/2014 at 6:49 PM

    My favourite: Eric Gower's Breakaway Cook. Simple steps to amazing output :-)

  • Nancith  on  7/3/2014 at 7:29 PM

  • Jerry77360  on  7/10/2014 at 3:16 PM

    I have several hundred cookbooks, so my favorite at any given moment is the one in which I found the best recent recipe I have used.

  • Stephen_Dunn  on  7/10/2014 at 3:31 PM

    Time and time again, I return to the excellently selected recipes in the range of 'Books for Cooks' series: 'One Year at Books for Cooks No2' is a definite favourite of mine. This compact annual series of books has served me as a way of getting a range of scrumptious recipes from different cooks, They have inspired me and delighted and even dazzled some of my guests! That said, it remains to be seen whether as a newly signed up member of EYB, I change this habit. EYB is such a very seductive recipe tool,it revives forgotten favourites and unravels hidden treasures I hope it won't divorce me completely from my old faithful friends!

  • rahiscock  on  7/10/2014 at 9:53 PM

    My favourite cookbook is the one I use most, and that is Veggiestan by Sally Butcher. Have just bought her other cookbooks, so hopefully they are as great!

  • br22  on  7/10/2014 at 10:23 PM

    I love lots of my cookbooks but a recurrent favorite seems to be Yotam Ottolenghi & Sami Tamimi's Jerusalem. Paula Wolfert's The Food of Morocco is a close second...in third place is Andreas Viestad's Where Flavor was Born which is tied with Ana Sortun's Spice.

    This is so hard. It constantly changes. Right now it's a tie between "Home Made" by Yvette Van Boven and "One Good Dish" by D. Tanis

  • obbigttam  on  7/22/2014 at 10:41 AM

    Whilst I love all my books at different times, my favourite has to be my first both for flavours I like and sentimental value. Charmaine Solomon's Complete Asian Cookbook was the first cookbook I learnt from as a child, and spent many years cooking from it and adding notes to the recipes with my mother.

  • ckline  on  7/24/2014 at 9:53 AM

    A thirty year old copy of the Betty Crocker cookbook that I bought when I first left home. Like me it is tattered, and missing a few pages, but still has plenty of use left.

  • jennij  on  7/24/2014 at 12:41 PM

    Hard to pick a favourite...but my most used book is one of my first. The Rebar Cookbook. Used to live in Victoria BC and frequent the restaurant. I'm not a vegetarian but I've made most things in this book! I've even considered buying a second copy because my original is falling apart....

  • xntrek  on  7/24/2014 at 5:45 PM

    With a few hundred cookbooks picking a favourite is going to be impossible, but for today, I'm going to choose ... The Flavour Thesaurus, which, technically isn't a cookbook, but provides me with constant inspiration when I feel experimental.

  • fluffysammy  on  7/25/2014 at 2:46 AM

    At the moment im mad on sweet making and my favourite book is A La Mere de Famille, its a sweet makers dream book and i love it

  • poppiesandpavlovas  on  7/25/2014 at 3:02 AM

  • bhasenstab  on  7/26/2014 at 10:34 AM

    I'd have to go with River Cottage Everyday, by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. So many delicious things in that book!

  • margaretahall  on  7/26/2014 at 10:36 AM

    My favorite cookbook is still Perfect Pasta, by Valentina Harris. It was one of my first two cookbooks, and more dishes from that book made it into my regular cooking rotation than from any other.

    a Pinch of This, a Handful of That

  • murdock37  on  7/26/2014 at 2:59 PM

    I have so many wonderful cookbooks that I really don't know which to choose so I'm going to go with an old one. The cookbook that I probably have cooked from more than any other (combined with its follow up cookbooks) would have to be the original Moosewood Cookbook along with the international version Sundays at Moosewood. While I am not a vegetarian I found so many amazing recipes in the series that died-in-the-wool carnivores didn't even complain about!

  • lovelily1001  on  7/26/2014 at 10:36 PM

    it's summer-- gorgeous fruit! so my current favorite is "ripe" by nigel slater.

  • Anniepalooza  on  7/28/2014 at 5:58 PM

    My favourite would have to be The Cook's Companion by Stephanie Alexander.

  • trudys_person  on  7/30/2014 at 10:57 PM

  • Chefhenry  on  7/31/2014 at 9:56 PM

    I think my favourite cookbook always ends up being the newest one, but these days the one I reach for more often than the others is Coi, Daniel Patterson's.
