My Favourite Cookbooks

A good cookbook will tell you how to properly prepare your food. An excellent cook book will inspire and motivate you to try something new, to explore places where you've never been.

My wife and me, we share a passion for cookbooks. We've probably got a hundred or so, in English, Spanish and Dutch, covering beautiful food from all over the world.

Here's a few excellent cook books from our personal cookbook library. As you have an interest in food - otherwise you would probably not be reading here - you may already have some of these. If not, I can highly recommend them.

The Big Book of North Carolina Barbecue

John Shelton Reed, Dale Volberg Reed and William McKinney

Without a doubt, this is one of the better barbecue books around. More than just a cook book, it's also a history book and a travel book. The lore, the food, the people - very inspiring.

"Holy Smoke" gives us a deep view into the fine barbecue traditions of North Carolina, exploring both the Piedmont and the Eastern cultures.

Written with humor, the book is filled with facts, interviews, historical anecdotes, inspiring illustrations, pit construction ideas, original barbecue recipes, and great side dishes.

Check out some of the great Holy Smoke recipes that we tried:
