    Kitchen Confidential is definetly at the top of the list.
    For recipes, though, Wildwood takes the cake. I can't say enough about it!! Cory Schreiber knows his stuff and, luckily, shares it with us. He has received some good press in Food Arts and rightfully so. Highly recommend! Check it out at www.ChefTalkStore.com [​IMG]

    I really liked From Simple To Spectacular and In The Sweet KItchen. As for Kitchen Confidential I just started it so I'll wait until I'm done to pass judgement.

    Last night I picked up "Commander's Kitchen", the receipes of Commander's Palace in New Orleans. That is the closest I have come to reading a cookbook cover to cover in one night. Looks like I've found a new favorite.
