Cookbooks have been around since forever. Our mothers, grandmothers and much older generations used them to memorize their recipes.
There are so many cookbooks for everyone, no matter if you consider yourself a gourmand or you just can’t live without a good dessert.
The first cookbook ever was written by a Sicilian Greek named Archestratus in 350 BC. It was called Hedypatheia (Pleasant Living or Life of Luxury). Thousands of cookbooks have been written ever since. So you may struggle to choose the right one.
Meanwhile, we decided to share 5 of our favorite cookbooks:
- “The Zuni Café Cookbook,” by Judy Rodgers (2002)
