If you are publishing a cookbook, you should consider using "lay-flat" binding rather than spiral or wiro binding. Lay-Flat binding serves the purpose of being able to flatten the book out to use while cooking while having a backbone that can still be printed (which makes it easier for stores to shelve your book with the title showing on the spine).
*This type of book binding is a little more expensive than regular perfect binding, but only marginally.
