About "Specialized" Cookbooks

(You should already have read the general notes on our selection of cookbooks and on interpreting our book listings, as found on our Good Cookbooks main cookbooks page.)

These are cookbooks that, as the heading suggests, have some special focus other than regional or national cookery—cookbooks with regional focus are to be found on a separate page of this site, Regional Cookbooks. Here, we list cookbooks for specific techniques, food types, particular occasions, and vegetarian cookery (a category with a remarkable number of excellent, much-respected cookbooks).

Particular Techniques:

Events and Occasions:

These cookbooks deal with specific meals, or menu categories, or seasons, or cooking for company.



Particular Foods:


Remember that a substantial fraction of the world's population is vegetarian, and that fraction includes some of the very greatest cooks and cuisines. Vegetarian food can be as elegant and complex as any, or as simple, hearty, and satisfying as any. These cookbooks (and others like them) are vivid proof.
