Cookbooks?

Recommended Posts

I strongly recommend Anthony Bourdain - Les Halles cookbook. techniques and strategies in classic bistro cooking. He explains there's no wrong way or right way to do as long as you're having a beer or margarita and having a good time whilst cooking. He's a legend! He loves his Deadboys, Ramones, Dickies, Stooges... An old school punk rocker from NYC!

You can't go wrong with any of the America's Test Kitchen or Cook's Country cookbooks.

 

If you do what they say, there's a 99% chance it's going to turn out perfectly.

 

For cooking magazines, I love Cuisine. It's one of the few cooking mags we get that we actually save.

The Art of Simple Food by Alice Waters seems like a good read. It's a perfect beginners cookbook and a good way for experienced cooks to revisit the basics.

 

I also have Gordon Ramsay's Home Cooking because Gordon Ramsay. Ha.

 

I've been meaning to pick up a few more but I'm focusing on specific foods now. The Complete Chile Pepper Book by Dave D and Tea by Kevin G are on the priority list right now. 

 

I've been seriously considering The Drunken Botanist. With background in horticulture, I think that book would be entertaining.
