Memories of favorite foods are some of the most vivid we have - a berry pie or a special sauce for barbequed spareribs can bring back images of family, childhood, or holidays.
A growing number of consumers are actively searching for old, out-of-print cookbooks .
Here are some helpful Web sites for such a quest:
A site billing itself as "Serious Books for Serious Cooks," with a separate "used cookbook" category.
A great source for used cookbooks, providing descriptions of the condition of the books in question.
A leading source for tough-to-locate cookbooks, at discounted prices.
