Our recent examination of favored and least favored cookbooks got me thinking about my collection. I've admitted before that I love cookbooks with a regional theme. When traveling, and I've been to thirty different countries not to mention most parts of the States, I hunt down those cookbooks like others collect thimbles or silver spoon souvenirs. My prime motivation is to be able to go home and duplicate for friends and family some of the new dishes I'd encountered on the road. Am I the only one or are there others out there who behave similarly?
