Check out Thug Kitchen. It's a little... Offensive to some but someone got me it as a gift for my birthday last year and most of the recipes are actually really good. All vegan/veggie recipes too.

Great resource - thanks!
Another James Beard award book for the OP, Carol Gelles' 1,000 Vegetarian recipes, or the condensed 100 Best Vegetarian Recipes - they may be out of stock, but you could email Carol Gelles directly. She has a website nowadays http://wheatfreedairyfreekitchen.com/ and she probably has a facebook account too. If you contact her, say hi from Andre /CSA in NYC ;Dpost #63 of 7112/30/15 at 10:54ampost #64 of 711/2/16 at 4:45ampost #65 of 711/2/16 at 9:44amQuote:
Depends on your style of learning. Different people have different styles. Videos also rarely go for the slow closeup so important in learning some skills such as knife skills.
And not all video are created equal same as books not being equal. Choose the best of both. This thread is about choosing the best books.post #66 of 711/2/16 at 9:48amSure, but it's an alternative. Jacob Burton's podcasts, for instance, are quite good. not sure if you've checked them out or not. He addresses technique, science, tools, and recipes too. Do we really need to be so literal as to not mention other learning media?post #67 of 711/2/16 at 10:06am
Better in different threads imho. Better organization for people searching and discussing particular things. There's a thread on great technique videos for example where MTCook also just posted.post #68 of 711/2/16 at 10:12amOk. Good point.post #69 of 711/3/16 at 1:08ampost #70 of 711/3/16 at 10:11am
I learn from a variety of media and thanks for the tips to specific video sources, didn't realize there was a thread here for that.
I got a copy of the Flavor Bible for Xmas and it's given me great ideas. I get stuck with the same old things and now have a resource to help me decide what complements various primary flavors.

What's your thing??? Entrees??? Pastries???? Baking??? As a home cook one baking book doesn't do it all as I've gotten bits and pieces from my collection of baking books totaling around six or seven. Is it bread that you want or a pate brisee or both??? Hmmmm.
Best and I'm a foodie. I know very little but the little that I know I want to know very well.
