The Colwin books look like just my cup of tea, thanks. I've put my order in. And the Reichl too looks very interesting - dysfunctional families AND cooking!

The Art Park Brownies in Reichl's book are great - rich, fudgey, intensely chocolate. And I make Colwin's shortbread all the time.

escofier? how about rick tramato, gail gand, rick bayliss, charlie trotter, paul kahan, jean joho, as well as food networks emerill, mario batali, bobby flay, and that geek alton brown. don't know if all those have written books, though. and if you don't have jaques pepin's complete techniques you better get that too. almost all americans have a copy of that better homes and gardens cookbook that looks like a tablecloth from a picnic as well.

Are you in Chicago, jdchurchill?

Well then, don't forget the big names of the West: Alice Waters, Thomas Keller, Tom Douglas, Mark Miller. But they are chefs, not food writers per se.

Bruce Cole's SauteWednesday has a good link list for all sorts of food writing.

Oh woot! This site's also got a great list, not only of chefs and pastry chefs, but cookbook writers.

My favourite American food writer is Jeffrey Steingarten, like all the most readable food books, his are not recipe books but collections of writing about food & eating.
