    "How to Cook Everything" by Mark Bittman How to Cook Everything (Completely Revised 10th Anniversary Edition) (9780764578656): Mark Bittman: Books

    That and Food Network were instrumental in me learning how to cook.

    Have used this one for nearly 30 years. Lots of traditional stuff, with really good info about the hows and why's of technique. Much is still usable for primal.

    THE French Kitchen Diane Holuigue French Cooking FOR Australians Cookbook | eBay

    Other favourites are my collection of David Thompson Thai cookbooks, the Elizabeth David books, and a paperback called Thai Cooking Class which has really good everyday recipes.

    I have a bookcase full and while some are great for inspiration others have just one or two favourite recipes.

    I just bought this book last week and am loving it. I haven't even gotten to the recipes yet. We just ordered a lamb, butchered to our specs and the book was really helpful.

    My favorite non-primal cookbook is "Invitation to Indian Cooking", by Madhur Jaffrey. Many recipes are primal, and others are easily adapted. The nicely spiced vegetable dishes are especially pleasing: a wonderful change from my standard vegetable fare.

    I also like "Betty Crocker Cooking Basics", not so much for the recipes as for the many cooking tips that have helped me in preparing my primal dishes.

    Haven't delved into it yet, but while going through my mother's kitchen and dining room after she passed away last month, I found a 1956 Betty Crocker cookbook. Based on a quick glance or two, it looks like there is quite a bit of primal friendly cooking in it. Just have to avoid the dessert section. ;-)

    Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall also has a good Vegetable cookbook... and Rick Stein for fishy related adventures.

    How to Master the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child. Most of the recipes are primal friendly if you remove the flour thickener.

    I just got The Whole Beast by Fergus Henderson. Its full of offal recipes-I can't wait to try them!!!

    Bought Nourishing Traditions because of the fermented food recipes and I have not been disappointed! Loving this cookbook right now.
