I’m often asked which cookbooks are my favorites. I will have to say I have a handful that I go to over and over again. I never tire of them and always seem to look at them from fresh eyes when I open them. These are some of my old and new favorites.
These are sold through Amazon by which I earn a commission for these products.
I own the 1989 version of this cookbook and the most current version which is the 17th edition, published in 2018. (As of this post) It is by far my favorite. It covers all the basics and it has a wealth of information on “how to”. The new version, is excellent. I have purchased these as gifts for people around me that are wanting to learn more or are just starting out in the kitchen. It still remains one of my favorites.
One of new favorites is Salt Fat Acid Heat by Samin Nosrat. A fabulous tutorial/cookbook for everyone! I just love this book. It’s simple to read and a joy for the eyes not to mention your stomach after you make some her delicious, simple recipes. I highly recommend!
Another new favorite is See You on Sunday by Sam Sifton. Beautifully written and amazingly beautiful recipes.
Another new discovery to me, but not to the masses is Christopher Kimball Milk Street. Another lovely cookbook. Just filled with culinary journeys. It’s a feast waiting to be partaken of.
Skinnytaste has turned us all into fans. Who knew that healthy food could taste so great? I have followed Skinnytaste for a few years now and was excited to get her first cookbook and it doesn’t disappoint. Approachable, easy and delicious recipes. Another top favorite of mine.
One of the true gems of this city is the restaurant Guelaguetza – this cookbook is a sliver into the world of arguably the best Mole outside of Mexico.
If you live in Los Angeles and have lived here for several years, chances are you have been to Baja. This book celebrates the food that is so unique to Baja California.
As of today, these are some of old and new faves…I have many and I will be sure to share new discoveries with you as I find them.
