The 'Cookbook Library', A New 'Bible' For Foodies

Food and history buffs will delight in reading The Cookbook Library, a new book detailing the 400-year history of cookbooks, from the ancient spice trade to the haute cuisine of the French royal courts and beyond.

No crumb has been left unturned in this book written by cookbook author Anne Willand and her husband Mark Cherniavsky. The authors are huge antique cookbook collectors and The Cookbook Library is their homage to the cooks, writers and recipes that went into making the modern-day cookbook.

Along with interesting essays and odd facts, the book highlights the role and contributions of France, England, Spain, Germany and Italy. It is evident hours of researched were invested in The Cookbook Library, which is receiving rave reviews from critics. If you love food history, this one is for you.

    I have this book and think it's wonderful, easy to read, the pictures are gorg. Every foodie/cookbook fan should add it to their own collection.

    One big issue here, though - the author's name is Willan, not WillanD!
