Sometimes you pick up a cookbook because you are a fan of a celebrity chef (hello, Nigella) or a cuisine (Ethiopian, anyone?) or a lifestyle (many, many people are giving veganism a try) or a cooking technique (barbecuing/grilling, for example).  But have you ever tried a cookbook that is based around a specific food? We recently saw that the catalog was featuring 3 cookbooks devoted to yogurt, and we thought, what other cookbooks revolve around a single subject?  The list we came up with is kind of...eclectic. Are there any single subject cookbooks you've been intrigued by or would recommend?  Let us know in the comments!
