Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall ‘River Cottage Meat Book’ - cook book and way of life book. A great read that has the bonus of recipes.
@StPaulDad I have this as well & totally agree.The James Beard Cookbook is an older hardback that includes laughably few ingredients in the recipes but explains why you need these and the rules for working with them. You don't get x minutes at y degrees so much as a quick rule to estimate how long it might take and how to tell when it's done. You learn a lot when the details are stripped away.
chowhound. com is fantastic. Separate discussions on recipes, wine, cookbook of the month, recipe of the month, cookware, restaurants, etc.
