Cooking from books

Sometimes even the best in anything need a little help. For cooks, fortunately there are more cookbooks in existence than there are people in the "Cook Islands". Yes, that's actually a country, and happens to be very conveniently named for me.

I wonder what the food is like there?

Anyway, here are a list of three books that I own and I've found to be very helpful:
I have a ton more which are ridiculously unhelpful, good books are hard to find. So my advice is to pick them up and look at EVERY recipe. If you like it, buy it then and there. But if there are more than 5 you'll never make, its time to find a new book.

On a side note, I was looking for new book online, and somebody jokingly suggested this one. I won't say too much about this, except,
GAG, and completely disgusting. I know I should be open minded about different types and styles of cooking, but this... no. Just no. Click if you dare.


  1. Do they use human semen? At least half of the cooking process would be fun.

  2. I don't know really ... Maybe you can pick up a copy and let me know?

  3. I honestly don't even see the point. It's not like semen is known for having any sort of distinctive or pleasant flavor. They're just adding it for the sake of doing so. I could even understand some countries doing it because they think it'll act as an aphrodisiac, but there doesn't seem to be any of that belief here.
