5.  The Perfect Scoop: Ice Creams, Sorbets, Granitas, and Sweet Accompaniments by David Lebovitz
The list author says:
  "The first recipe I made out of this book was the chocolate coconut ice cream. It was so incredibly divine, that I have had to force myself to try other ones, rather than making the same one over and over again. David also writes with humor, making the book a fun read, just like his blog."

Pedaling Through Provence Cookbook
13.  Pedaling Through Provence Cookbook by Sarah Leah Chase
The list author says:
  "This is a book I have devoured as bedtime reading, as well as in the kitchen. The story behind each recipe is fun to read, and the recipes all capture the essence of Provencal cooking, but with an American twist to many of them. While that bothered me, at first, I have to say that Sarah's ideas and "thinking outside the box" have opened up my way of thinking, too."

The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook
15.  The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook by Ina Garten

  "I find that caterers often write the best recipes. Like Sarah Leah Chase, Ina Garten has developed her own take on traditional recipes, all easy to follow and sooooo delicious! Good old fashioned food, with a contemporary flair!"
$20.30   Used & New from: $4.46

Chez Panisse Café Cookbook
16.  Chez Panisse Café Cookbook by Alice Waters
The list author says:
  "I love everything about Alice Waters. Her crusade to get Americans back to real, honest food - fresh from the garden and local - has had such an influence on the way we think, brining us closer to what food should be! I actually like all of her books."
$25.00   Used & New from: $0.97
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (20 customer reviews)

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (318 customer reviews)

The Way to Cook
18.  The Way to Cook by Julia Child
The list author says:
  "It goes without saying that Julia Child rewrote how Americans think about cooking, in her Mastering The Art of French Cooking, I & II. However, I like this newer publication, as she simplifies many of the processes, and how-to photos accompany her recipes, making them a joy to follow."
$26.63   Used & New from: $1.91
