[CnD] recommended cookbooks

When I think of the braille cookbooks, I think of the Our Special cookbooks,
Cooking without Looking, When the Cook Can't Look, Better Homes and Gardens
Cookbook, and I think as a teen, a lady gave me one with a hard bound cover
on it and I think it was called The Braille Cookbook; I no longer have many
of these, but they were wonderful and helpful to beginning cooks.

Braille is not an option for me -- too many years of playing hand drums
before I lost my sight. That's why I look for cookbooks and other media in
digital formats. And if anyone has any of the ones I referenced in such
formats, I'd love to know where to get them.

Oo a lot of these books sound great. Can't wait till they are available. I'm

a cook book collector but a lot of mine are in braille.  I got them from 
National braille press. They have a pamphlet of cook books they can send all

ya have to do is call and ask for it.

The Joy of Cooking is a must. It's more than a cookbook, its' a cooking
textbook, with a lot of technique in it.

Betty crocker's cookbook is a similar one. Get it through Bookshare.

If you can find it the 1918 Fannie Farmer cookbook is wonderful. It's the
last one she put together before her death, and it has a lot of the basics
in it. There was a wonderful little book my ex found called The Can Opener
Cookbook. It's vintage, from when housewives were just starting to use a lot
of canned goods, but it kept things simple. If you can find it, scan it and
make it available for Bookshare so we can have access to it, and if I find
it first (mine got stolen) I'll get it up there. I love the Foods of the
World series from Time-Life. They haven't reissued them yet, but hopefully
they will some day. If they don't I'm working on collecting them. There's a
great book called "Recipes from the backs of Boxes, Bottles, Cans, and Jars"
that has a lot of those things you find on a package, and I'm planning on
scanning my copy and putting it up on Bookshare as soon as I find my big
book of recipes. I recently found a great book on Indian (dots, not
feathers) cuisine called
Curry: A tale of Cooks and Conquerors, by Lizzie Collingham, which both
deals with how East Indian cuisine came about and some of the recipes
typical of the cuisine. I haven't made any of them yet, but it was a great
listen. NLS has it, and it's downloadable on BARD if you have a digital
player For those of a zymurgical bent, (wine making) there's Acton &
Duncan's book, Making Mead. I love this book, and I hope to get it scanned
soon. It's written from a British perspective, but other than the fact that
Heather honey is hard to get in the Americas it'll work. I've made a lot of
good honey wines from it. The wimemaker's recipe handbook, by Raymond
massaccesi is also interesting, and it's another one I hope to have
available soon on Bookshare. And for something different there's Cider by
Annie prouslx and lew Nichols, which is a great book on making ciders of all
kinds. For something without the octane I  got a lot out of Cresswell's
book, Homemade Root Beer and Soda Pop. It's another one I plan to scan soon
and put up on Bookshare.

Sorry that a lot of these aren't blind accessible yet, but if I can get a
bit of sighted assistance I can locate them and run them through the trusty
HP Scanjet and they'll be around for y'all to benefit from soon.

Hi everyone,

I'd like to know what cookbooks and cooking gadgets you find the most
helpful. If you'd rather write me off list, that's ok.

Thanks in advance,
