Looking for a new project? Wish you were a better cook? Why not try cooking every
recipe in a cookbook? Originally started by Julie Powell
of Julie & Julia
fame, people now register domain names for anticipated cookbooks in advance
of the release date. As daunting as it seems to tackle the entirety of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, that challenge seems to pale in comparison to the epic quest of cooking all 1000+ recipes in the Gourmet cookbook
. For the chef who wants a different sort of challenge, there are the particular demands
of Heston Blumenthal's $250, 11.6 pound molecular gastronomy bible, The Big Fat Duck Cookbook
. While the bloggers cooking
are working with isomalt and sorghum flour, the daring souls blogging Nose to Tail
are wrestling with noses, tails, and all the offal parts in between
. If this seems like a lonely road, maybe you'd like to join one of the group baking projects such as Tuesdays with Dorie
or The Bread Baker's Apprentice

For Men by Men, the Stag Cookbook helped those who had previously tried their hand at cooking, but
"weakened under a fire of feminine raillery & sarcasm." Contributors included: William Jennings Bryan, Warren G. Harding, Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, Jules Jusserand, Reed Smoot, Jerome Kern, and Houdini.

An Anonymous Andalusian Cookbook of the 13th Century.
Because you never know when you'll need to make Marrow Without Marrow (Which No One Will Suspect), forget how to grease your Chicken Called Madhûna, or need to rustle up something for the in-laws (A Dish Praised in Springtime for Those with Fulness and Those with Burning Blood).
