I like to collect cookbooks and love to experiment with different types of cuisines. What book(s) have you liked that would you recommend?

One of my all time favorites -- and this brands me for an old hippie, I know -- is the original Moosewood cookbook. There's a new one out too -- I'm not a vegetarian, although this is a vegetarian cookbook -- but it wouldn't be that hard to live veggie with these substantial and good-tasting recipes.

I make the Moosewood feta-walnut dip every so often -- from about 25 years' memory. People can't keep away from it -- make lots. It's wonderful on raw veggies or pita, but plain old Triscuits give it crunch and a light salt tang that is yummy, especially with a little strip of smoky roasted red pepper on top:

Feta-Walnut Dip

1 c chopped walnuts
a handful of fresh parsley
1 c crumbled feta cheese
1/2 c milk or half-and-half
1 tsp paprika
cayenne, to taste
olive oil
1 small clove garlic

Place the walnuts and parsley in a blender or foodprocessor, and
blend with a series of quick spurts. When the nuts are ground,
add the remaining ingredients except olive oil and oregano, and
puree until smoooth.

Transfer to a small serving bowl, cover tightly, and chill. Just
before serving, drizzle the top with a little olive oil, and garnish
with small sprigs of fresh (or a light sprinkling of dried) oregano.

Serve on sesame crackers or toasted pita wedges, or as a dip for
raw vegetables.

"Stocking Up " and "Home Food Systems" both by Rodale press from the late `60's early `70's...

They are both how to as well as history and recipes.

How is that for old hippie LOL!?! ...we brought them when they were first published ...

We also have both Moosewood cookbooks, they don't get used here much, I need my meat LOL!
