Classic Cookbooks around the world?
It seems that there are a few classic cookbooks that almost everyone who cooks seems to have; I'm not talking about the fancy ones, but rather the workhorses of the kitchen: Joy of Cooking, How to Cook Everything, Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook perhaps (my mom gave me that one when I went off to University so I wouldn't burn the water..).
I'm curious about similar ones from other parts of the world - anyone know what the comparable titles are in Australia/NZ or in the UK? Italy? Elsewhere?
