See Rabelais' recommendation for a book worth cooking all-the-way-through.
"There’s something about the idea of cooking through an entire cookbook that’s very appealing. Like you’re going to culinary school for $30. The best-known example is Julie & Julia, née The Julie/Julia Project, which left both Mastering the Art of French Cooking and the whole cook-the-book concept feeling a little overexposed. But many of the most talented chefs of our era — Alice Waters, Tom Colicchio, Alton Brown — started out learning a single cookbook front to back. BuzzFeed asked them and other food celebs to pick one they’d recommend cooking through and explain why. If you’re a fan of one of these people, getting to know the cookbook that informed their dedication to food will be fascinating."
