I've been recently adding to my collection but have yet to choose any favorites. Though I do love Kaiseki. The pictures are gorgeous, ingreidents I may never find in the states, but the sheer beauty of the place and the technical skill of the chefs are impressive, invigorating, and inspiring to say the least. Ripert's "A Return to Cooking" is great too. I can't think of a better way to go about writing a cook book. Take a handfull of friends (Ruhlman, a Painter, the Wifee, etc) travel around North America and the Carribbean, get inspired by local ingredients, wine, cigars, etc. and create fantastic improtu meals. though keller is hard to beat!
