I am relatively new to gourmet cooking. In fact I pretty much hated cooking because it seemed like a chore trying to make a picky family happy. Now I cook for myself and if they don't like it, Oh Well. (they usually love it!) My favorite cookbook is Joy of Cooking (circa 1974) because you never know when you will have to cook whale! Seriously, it has whale in the older versions.
