5/3/MUSTIE Be ruthless in weeding old cookbooks. Physical condition is the main criteria as cookbooks that are well used become grungy quickly. Also weed books by celebrity chefs and television cooks once their popularity has waned. Weed cookbooks that are based on popular diets (e.g., The South Beach Diet Quick and Easy Cookbook) once the diet is no longer popular.
Replace classic cookbooks, such as The Betty Crocker Cookbook, with new editions when available. Books on nutrition and food preparation should reflect current scientific practice. Any titles that mention the four basic food groups should be replaced with titles that discuss the food pyramid.
