So like me, you absolutely love food and wine. You enjoy shopping for it, preparing it, looking at it and definitely reading about it. You probably also have stacks of books on your nightstand or library in various stages of reading.
Most probably you haven't found a cookbook that you do not feel compelled to take home with you and devour like other people would the latest bestselling novel.
But, of course, you'd rather not pay retail.
Then you are in luck because there is this fantastic independent on-line gourmet bookseller right here in Seattle that has great bargains in fabulous books for professional chefs, serious cooks & collectors.
Gourmet Guides Cookbooks has been in business since 1973, selling--to customers all around the world--unusual, out of print, closeouts, over-stocks, remainders & hurts at a discount.
And best of all, if you purchase (phone, fax, or mail orders available) anywhere-- in the continental USA-- from one to up to four books they will ship them out to you for only $4 shipping. When was the last time you heard of such a deal? Four books, four bucks shipping. Now that is a bargain!
Their selection is lovely too. Right now Anthony Bourdain's Les Halles Book is on sale for $13, Eric Ripert's A Return to Cooking is only $19 and Katherine Alford's Caviar, Truffles and Foie Gras sells for $6.
And psst! They have Culinaria France and Culinaria European Specialties also in stock too.
