    Who's father and what does this person like? You must have some sort of inkling.

      Me, I like Everything, and I can only pick 2. I like books with "staying power" I have about 120 now

      I heartily recommend Fish Without a Doubt: The Cook's Essential Companion. It's been COTM twice and people, me included, have the book in rotation at home for it's splendid meals. Here are some links to the recipe reports...

      Burma will be June's COTM. Those who have already cooked from it give pretty good reports...
