No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers.—Laurie Colwin

Historic Cookbooks of the World

Gerrit Dou, Girl Chopping Onions.

Girl Chopping Onions by Gerrit Dou, 1646. Dou was a Dutch Golden Age painter and a student of Rembrandt.

Shortly after college, my English literature degree in hand, I was lucky enough to find a job as an editor at a small publishing company specializing in ethnic cookbooks. It was a wonderful learning experience, and I was blessed to be exposed to so many unique cooking styles. The Historic Cookbooks of the World collection arose from my long-time love affair with world cuisine, and I hope you enjoy the titles we've selected to bring back into print. — Joanne Asala, Editor
