Even in a digital world, there’s still undeniable pleasure to be found in a book, especially a cookbook. In Reading Terminal, surrounded by smells of baking cookies and simmering curry, The Cookbook Stall can help satisfy any craving. Open since 1983, The Cookbook Stall is home to a collection of some 3,000 cookbooks. The collection is curated by shop owner Jill Ross, a former librarian, who tries to keep the offerings specialized and focused on food. Here, you won’t find many books by big name celebrity chefs, but whether you’re a beginner inspired to get cooking, a visitor looking for a book by a Philly chef to take home as a souvenir, or a cook looking for the latest volume by a Michelin-starred chef, you’ll have no trouble finding something to make your mouth water. Don’t have room in your suitcase? The Cookbook Stall offers online sales as well!
