A Good Cook Book

For a while now I have wanted a cook book to reference while I'm creating my masterpieces (achacha! or achacha). More and more I am realizing that I don't want concrete recipes but, instead, something informative about grains, fresh produce, baking and cooking methods so that I can build on what I am learning every day. As it is I can barely make myself follow one recipe at a time. I usually search several blogs to create a hybrid recipe that gets me really excited. I suppose I've been lucky, too, because I have mostly made good-tasting foods instead of disasters.

At least, I've been told they are good...

So I guess I'll just keep searching the blogs with my eyes peeled for the book of my dreams.

Hi, Randi;

I am a friend of Ryan Kost's in Sudan - just wanted to give you a heads-up about the Tassajara cookbook "series," if you don't know about them. My mom raised me on their "Bread Book," but there's one called "Tassajara Cooking" (or maybe "Tassajara Recipes" ...?) that gives some basic ideas for working with basic ingredients. It might be worth taking a walk down to the bookshop.
