I have 4 of the "culinaria" series of books: greece, france, italy and spain. These are great books that go into the regions of each country and talk about their respective specialties, products, and food industries. they have been out of print for some time and there were a few that never actually made it to publication. I was recently looking them up and saw on a retail website that most of them are being reissued later this year. does anyone have any of these books? how do you like them? i'm curious about the "united states" and "germany" books in specific.
