After the revelries of my out of town guest, I found myself broker than usual by the weekend.  With only $8 left by Saturday, it was time to get resourceful.  I became a card carrying member of the Brooklyn Public Library.  The library is the best place to try out cookbooks.  A no money down, no commitment effort, it allows you to see if you jibe with the writer’s taste and point of view.  After a few trials, I’ve bought cookbooks, and I’ve passed on many as well.  It opens up a whole new world.  And unlike the internet’s repository of random recipes, it’s nice to read a cohesive body of work.  I’ll be putting my card to good use.
