Reading cookbooks is one of my favorite things to do, but they make you HUNGRY!! The Andrés book is good, but as I don't care for seafood there's not a lot in it for me. Marcus' book is good, has great stories, and has food from around the world. The Madeleine book made me order pans, so very tempting, in other words. Smitten Kitchen is awesome, but that was a given, just check her website and you'll know it's the truth.
