A Cookbook Library

"He liked those literary cooks
Who skim the cream of others' books."

—Hannah More

About Our Library

Our Cookbook Library—whose contents change daily—derives from our partnership with The Book Depository, which carries virtually every book currently in print. Every night, we query their database for all books related to "cooking", and present the top results here. We say "top" because their search makes available tens of thousands of titles, but we take only the top two or three thousand as rated by sales popularity, so you know that it is the most popular cookbooks in the world that constitute our "library".

(But don't forget that we also present a specially selected set of especially noteworthy cookbooks—not all still in print, but all still available—elsewhere on this site; check out the list in the brown-box "Cookbooks" rollover menu at the top of this and every page.)

To keep the list manageable, we have divided our "library" into 28 "rooms" (separate pages of this site) organized by the books' titles. Each "room" (page) contains books whose title begins with a given letter of the alphabet, with a numeral, or with a non-alphanumeric character. (Titles beginning with "A", "An", or "The" are sorted by the second word of the title.)

Browse, and enjoy. If you see something you like, you can actually one-click but it right from here. And remember that The Book Depository's prices always include free shipping: no minimum orders to work up just to get free shipping.
