People who love to cook tend to have at least one favorite cookbook that they turn to over and over again.
Sometimes it's an old book that mom used, sometimes it's the first cookbook they bought on their own, and sometimes it's simply the most recent cookbook they added to their collection and that they're excited about.
For the fun of it, we asked the cooks here at 37 Cooks to pick a favorite recipe from a favorite book to show it off.
The books range from the new, like Food52 Genius Recipes to the somewhat old, like a cookbook from a livestock show in Houston, to a book that's not actually a cookbook.
Recipes range from classic American to more exotic fare, from spicy to comforting and from easy to more complicated. But the thing they have in common is that our cooks loved them. We think you will, too!
