    I Just got these books about a week ago and they are EXCELLENT.

    The Best Recipe's in the World - Mark Bittman
    This book has I swear over 2000 recipe's and atleast 10 from every country of the world.

    Greatest Recipe's - (Doesnt have an Author)
    Ive got about 10 recipes in here that i LOVE. Including Mussel Flourentine and Lamb Cuttlets with Olives and Rosemary

    Congratulations on finding some enjoyable books! Always great to have ones that give you what you want.:smiles:

    Mind you, just to be pernickety:rolleyes: , if it has 10 recipes from every country that's one mighty big book... some of us might think that certain cuisines have trouble producing ten best recipes of the world:smokin

    What is it you like about Bittman? This is not a challenge, I'm seeking insight.

    I tried one his low ingredient count cookbooks from the library and I bounced off him pretty hard. Same for the PBS show where he hangs with a chef and watches him cook then cooks a simplified version for us at home. I always am much more interested in the chef's dish.
