Summary In this collection, some of the most respected figures in the food world have come together to choose 101 of the most important cookbooks of the twentieth century, the books that changed the way we eat over the years. From these 101 cookbooks, 501 signature recipes have been selected that reflect the author's unique viewpoint, codify a revolutionary new technique, or magically invoke a particular time and place. Also, the significance of each cookbook is explained in a capsule review alongside images of its first edition. In addition, interspersed throughout the collection are ten essays by culinary luminaries about the significance and legacy of the trailblazer chefs who came before them.
