Next up on my cookbook journey is The Essential Cookbook by Zoe Camrass. This book bills itself as "the only cookbook you'll ever need." I'm dubious, but mostly because I found so many unappealing recipes at the start. However, there seem to be many appetizing recipes in latter sections, which is why I'm giving this book a try.

The first five recipes I'll try are:
* Purée of lentil soup
* Zucchini salad
* Pears in red wine
* Portuguese salt cod
* Ratatouille

If you were to keep only one cookbook on your shelf, which would it be? For me, The Original New York Times Cookbook by Craig Claiborne is my essential cookbook.

The Joy of Cooking, just in case I ever need to cook a squirrel.

My fall-back is my Betty Crocker cookbook from 1978! Great pie crusts and sugar cookie recipes!

I suck at pie crusts. That's why I like crumbles and cobblers.
