We recently rearranged our condo. Kids in our old room, us on the third floor, kids’ toys and books up in their room and cook books in the shelves in our kitchen island. And it is all coming into focus now. The whole point of this giant shifting of people and things was really an effort on Ben’s part to stop me from buying any more cook books.

Nothing is ever a big deal in a Bittman cook book. His latest is an encyclopedia of recipes and techniques: How to Cook Everything, The Basics ($27.72 at indigo.ca) that every home cook will turn to again and again. And since it’s an encyclopedia, it’s a reference book and can sit alongside the dictionaries and atlases on our large, main bookshelf. Don’t you think?
