Its so funny, do people still use cookbooks?

I google recipes.

I mostly do too, but for frum audiences there is still a place for cookbooks for use on yom tov or even on shabbos for salads.

I like the kosher by design kids in the kitchen for beginners. 🙈

I would definitely say Table for Two as absolute first choice!
Purple Spice and Spirit if you want a second choice.

If she's not a beginner- I find The Silver Platter (both of them) to be good. Not too typical but not too complicated or exotic either. Probably the cookbook I repeat recipes the most often.

Ok back to the purple cookbook which by the way is the same as spice and spirit.
The good part is it’s not just for when you are a newlywed. It’s a classic with every basic so it can really teach you how to cook. Then there’s a lot of more interesting things that you can be creative with. They really cover everything and she can use it throughout her marriage.
I have a ton of cookbooks, but yea I also mainly google things now.
Even with that I go back to the purple book first if I need something. Just used it today.

I would not recommend Susie Fishbein, Peas, Love, and Carrots, or the Bais Yaakov cookbook.

I would recommend Spice and Spirit, the Nitra Simcha cookbook, Table for Two, Dining In, Fresh and Easy, and What's Cooking. My absolute favorite are Miriam Pascal's cookbooks, Real Life Kosher Cooking and More Real Life Kosher Cooking. I'm also really looking forward to Between Carpools' Dinner Done.

I never understood the recommendation for the Bais Yaakov cookbook. Do people make elaborate 4-course menus every night??
