Salutation Seasoned Advice community. I'm just a college student learning how to cook. I wanted to check out some cooking books to expand my horizon in developing flavor and cooking techniques. I prefer something that goes in depth to different ingredients ( spices, produce, and meat).

Sorry, but recommendations are off topic on the main site - for books, recipes, or anything. As SAJ mentioned, we can give you some in chat, it is not strictly moderated. –  rumtscho Mar 12 '14 at 9:02
Oh I'm sorry. I wasn't aware of this policy. –  BeefWithRice Mar 12 '14 at 9:07
While strictly 'off-topic' for the main site this question was covered in a series of blog posts. The New Best Recipe Book ,Ratio and The Flavor Bible would be good starters for you. –  Cos Callis Mar 12 '14 at 12:51
Oh wow. Thanks! I'll be sure to check it out. I didn't know this community had a blog! –  BeefWithRice Mar 12 '14 at 22:54
