Come over to the DJ and participate in our discussion on whether or not cookbooks need to have photos to capture your attention. Our friend Melissa Clark tossed out the question on Twitter and we are running with it.

In the beginning there were just words. Then came line drawings. Next a smattering of photos and now we are awash with pictures.
Since more home cooks are learning to cook by the book and not at a person’s side I think the more pics the better. There is a technique in reading and imaging the dish that can be daunting. Pictures smooth the transition.
An emphatic YEA! Food is a visual sport for me.
Of course, you need photos so you can judge how badly you screwed it up. Want your food to look good? Get a bunch of colorful plates and always, always sprinkle with parsley. Photos? We don’t need no stinkin’ photos.
Definitely. Yes. Of course.
