Food books on Openlibrary.org

I'd meant to explore what was available on Open Library some time ago and got distracted, so let's try this again. Open Library is a resource for often-free books available online, sometimes as ebooks and sometimes through physical libraries (via WorldCat). Some of the writers available through free ebooks that I've found so far:

Jeffrey Steingarten

https://openlibrary.org/works/OL26255...

Anthony Bourdain

https://openlibrary.org/search?q=anth...

Ruth Reichl

https://openlibrary.org/search?q=ruth...

Jacques Pepin

https://openlibrary.org/search?q=jacq...

Moosewood

https://openlibrary.org/search?q=moos...

Unfortunately just because the listing has an ebook available doesn't mean it can always be downloaded. Some are protected by some service called Daisy which takes a special login. So it can be hit or miss, but any of those (and others--search bar top right) should give at least one selection that can be borrowed or read online.

  1. And the one that reminded me: The Fine Art of Chinese Cooking by Lee Su Jan (my go-to book for the rare occasion that I cook Chinese)
