Cookbooks generally contain recipes and cooking techniques. But with the popularity of cooking shows, they can also include gourmet cooking books that are as much for perusing as for implementation. There are also celebrity chefs who produce cookbooks as part of their brand. The category of cookbooks includes cuisine from around the world, some special diets as well as wine. We like to include some out-of-print classic cookbooks as well as some of the recent contributions to this genre.
