My own has to be "A Year in a Vegetarian Kitchen" by Jack Bishop.  Recipes are organized seasonally, and there are lots for each season, so you don't run out by the second week of fall.  Also, they're easy, generally quick and super-tasty.  I highly recommend it for vegetarians and carnivores alike.

I agree, "A Year in a Vegetarian Kitchen" is great, as is Jack Bishop's Italian vegetarian cookbook of several years back.  As befits a senior editor of Cooks' Illustrated, all his recipes work perfectly and, as a bonus, his little tips in the sidebars are great.

My latest addition to the overstuffed cookbook shelf is Nigel Slater's "The Kitchen Diaries", which Will got me for Christmas.  Not as immediately useful as some of his other books, maybe, but full of that great gastro-porn photography that the Brits do so well, and plenty of useful thoughts and recipes geared, as Jack Bishop's book is, to eating with the season.  Which is all very well and good in clement England (or even the tip of Long Island) but kind of depressing here in the north with several months to go until lettuce sprouts.

Nigel's book can be found on
