FIVE ESSENTIAL COOKBOOKS EVERYONE SHOULD OWN (PART TWO!)
Each Tuesday, we feature a BA staffer's top five favorite cookbooks. This week, it's web editor @careypolis.
- •An Everlasting Meal by Tamar Adler"If you can write beautifully about stems and roots, you have my attention. Turns out, simple really is beautiful (as is her writing)."
- •How To Cook Everything by Mark Bittman"The title says it all. A great reference for when you should really know a certain technique or recipe but just haven’t quite mastered it. Bittman makes it easy."
- •Blue Plate Special by Kate Christensen"This isn’t technically a cookbook but a beautiful memoir that reminds us all how important food can be as a vehicle to heal and love. (Sorry if that sounds cheesy, I promise she isn’t a cheesy writer at all.)"
- •The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman"This book marks a seismic shift in how cookbooks are pitched and popularized. Smitten Kitchen is an O.G. food blogger who proved that she also has what it takes to put together a solid book."
- •The Moosewood Cookbook by Mollie Katzen"I received this cookbook as a gift when I was just starting to get really excited about cooking. It made vegetables cool (40 years ago) before vegetables were cool (now)."
