Five of the Most Expensive Cookbooks You'll Probably Never Own

If you like cooking as much as we think we do, you probably have at least a few referential or inspirational cookbooks tucked away in your personal library. You might prop them up against a solid mixing bowl and flip through their pages with buttery, sticky, garlic-y fingers and reckless disregard.

While we're certainly fans of the classics like Joy of Cooking and Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book, sometimes the same-ol'-same just doesn't cut it. So if you've got money to blow and a serious craving for gastronomic literature, check out these titles for a literary-culinary adventure like you've never seen before.
