The Ten Cookbooks Every Cook Should Own | EpicuriousA great cookbook is the total package: it has delicious recipes that work, beautiful photography, writing that inspires and intrigues, and, most importantly, it covers a type of food that people are excited to eat. A truly amazing cookbook earns its stains through frequent use, and can almost become a family member as it reappears year after year at birthdays and holidays. We are proud to herald ten such cookbooks as the inaugural class of the Epicurious Cookbook Canon. These are books that have either stood the test of time or are indispensable for a modern home cook.

There are lots of offerings in the all-purpose category, and many of them are great.
