Non-fiction books that contain a collection of recipes, techniques, and tricks of the trade or else focus on the exploration of food, cooking, and culture of food. Many cookbooks are divided into sections such as baking, dinner, and breakfast. A specialty cookbook may focus only on a certain country's cuisine, such as Italian or Cajun. There are some cookbooks that are written to highlight one ingredient (i.e. honey), and some cookbooks focused on only one branch of cooking (such as bread.) Even further, some cookbooks focus on types of cooking (microwave, barbecue, baking.)

    Let them Teach,Let them learn,let them pray,for the world is theirs.
    ― Jerril Thomas Abraham

    Anthony Lane
    That's the trouble with cookbooks. Like sex education and nuclear physics, they are founded on an illusion. They bespeak order, but they end in tears.
    ― Anthony Lane, Nobody's Perfect: Writings from The New Yorker
