Eight Bookplates

I got a nice set of bookplates for Christmas, from my sister, and I've just stuck them into eight favorite cookbooks (and no, my name isn't Sarah Koffman):

  1. Baking with Julia (Dorie Greenspan)
  2. English Bread and Yeast Cookery (Elizabeth David)
  3. Mastering the Art of French Cooking, volumes 1 and 2 – bow down to Julia
  4. The Book of Tarts (Maury Rubin) – because I am the Queen of Tarts
  5. The Cake Bible (Rose Levy Beranbaum) – from which I made my wedding cake, and my sister’s, come to think of it
  6. The James Beard Cookbook – from which I learned to make the perfect strawberry shortcake, using a rich biscuit dough
  7. The Joy of Cooking, 1953 – I also have the 1975 edition
