    The World of Warcraft Cook Book, it has some great recipes ranging from crab cakes to roast turkey to white chocolate cake. I got it myself (since I'm a massive nerd) after watching your videos made me really want to start cooking new things.

    Try one of the cook books from the 18th century in re-print at Townsends (a living history supply company with a you tube channel). They seem to use minimalistic directions as well so it could get very interesting.

    Y'all seem like you're trying to include more vegan or special diet type recipes lately, so do one of the thug kitchen cookbooks. Despite the gimmick presentation, they have some really good vegan recipes in there. I've liked every one I've made and I'm not even vegetarian.

    "Pommes noisettes" are basically like choux but you use mashed potatoes instead of flour/milk/water in your choux pastry dough. Oh, and you fry them.

    Next you should do the Italian counterpart "La scienza in cucina e l'arte di mangiar bene" by Pellegrino Artusi. The guy was so mad with French cousine he traveled across Italy just so he could write his own cookbook.

    Do you want some truly disgusting and compelling content? Find some cookbooks printed in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. Especially 50s and 60s. There was some really weird shit going on then. Like mayonnaise gelatin molds. Even just typing that almost makes me throw up. Google it, the image alone is enough to make you sick.

    There was one element I can not wrap my head around. Why take the time to cut the carrots in cubes and plate them with some frozen peas that have been boiled? It looked like a bag of frozen peas and carrots. But in reality the carrots were cut buy hand.

    My favorite cookbook is one my Dad got at a garage sale for about 2 dollars when I was a teenager his came in one book with 2 sections...when I moved out I paid about $30 to get my own but mine came in a two volume set. It is called "The Horizon Cookbook and Illustrated History of Eating and Drinking Through the Ages" the recipes being are in the second volume. It takes old recipes and puts them into modern terms but will usually give a short history of the recipe at the beginning of each. It also has whole historical menus for different events found at the beginning of the book....one recipe in particular (I think it was for a kind of tart maybe but I don't have the cookbook here to reference) has the complete recipe in old English before giving you the interpretation underneath. It is also a fun cookbook to just read through recipes if you are into reading cookbooks...I think because the short histories of the recipes make it a very interesting read.
