Cookbook Fever

I was fascinated to read a CH had worked his/her way through a Marcella Hazen cookbook. I have several shelves of cookbooks and when I'm looking for a recipe for something I'll do a research or will again make something I liked from before. How many of you out there have actually worked his/her way through which particular cookbook and his or her experience with that? I actually would not be at all surprised there are many of you since we're all obsessed with food here. I read cookbooks all the time, but have never cooked everything in any particular one.

  1. Worked my way through Peter Reinhart's "The Baker's Apprentice" and currently working my way through Stanley Ginsberg/Norman Berg "Inside the Jewish Bakery". It's time consuming and, in some instances, expensive. But it's also great fun. Experience has taught me that working your way through a cookbook means you're going to plrepare some of the recipes more than once; they don't always turn out perfect ;D
