Six notable books about food

Mark Bittman, longtime food writer for the New York Times, is the author of How to Cook Everything and The VB6 Cookbook. One of his six favorite books about food, as shared at The Week magazine:
The Old World Kitchen by Elisabeth Luard

I'm convinced this is the best cookbook that no one's ever heard of. This broad survey of European peasant cooking covers culinary territories both familiar (France, Italy) and foreign (Bulgaria, Romania). And don't worry: You're given permission to use beef for the Lapland reindeer stew.
