Foundational Cookbooks

I consider cooking a craft. I found this post from Casual Kitchen on Foundational Cookbooks, listing six foundational cookbooks to own that you'll actually use. Embarrassingly, I don't own any of these. I think my first purchase from this list would be the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook and then the Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant.
 Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book (Better Homes & Gardens Plaid)
My cookbooks are family cookbooks and my own compilation of collected recipes from the internet. What are your foundational cookbooks?

My foundational cookbooks are my Mennonite Treasury, a Taste of Home collection from the year we were married, and a whole lot of Company's Coming cookbooks. I don't know how people in the know feel about Company's Coming but I got a lot of them as gifts when I got married and I like that the ingredients are common things that I usually have.

My top six are:

-Joy of Cooking (a gift from a friend a few years ago, and it has been in very frequent use since)
-Better Homes and Gardens (affectionately referred to as the red-checked book)
-What's Cooking Chicken by Tom Bridge
-Canadian Living Cookbook
-Company's Coming Easy Entertaining
-Dad Cooks up a Party (Bob Sloan)
