I am obsessed with recipes, cookbooks, chefs, restaurants, cooking on television, cooking magazines, cooking and eating. It's not unusual for me to check out 20-40 cookbooks from the library on a specific topic(ice cream, tapas, tea parties, etc), browse them all and buy the ones I love. I buy loads of cookbooks and like reading them cover-to-cover There's a stack at home that I haven't touched, so maybe that needs to calm down. Love reading books by people in the food business, too. Top Chef is my favorite show on TV.
