My Favorite Cookbooks

  1. New York Times Cookbook
    This cookbook is amazing. It's a history lesson on NY Times recipes and the progression of food starting 1850 to the present.
  2. Moosewood Cookbook
    This is my first cookbook. The Moosewood Cafe in Ithaca, New York, changed my life. After moving to Ithaca for college, I became a vegetarian and a cook because of this cookbook. Thank you @molliekatzen !!
  3. Cabbagetown Cafe Cookbook
    Not far from the Moosewood Cafe was the Cabbagetown Cafe, another revolutionary vegetarian restaurant. This cookbook has simple, tasty recipes. Love it.
  4. Carmine's Cookbook
    Although I'm a born and raised New Yorker, I love Carmine's in Times Square. I know that it's touristy and going to Times Square makes me want to kill myself, the food is really good, the drinks are large and potent and it's a fun festive atmosphere. Love this chicken parm recipe.
  5. Martha Stewart's Hors D'Oeuvres Handbook
    This is a great cookbook for entertaining. I've made many of the recipes with great results. Favorite, those molasses glazed ribs.
  6. Sopranos Family Cookbook
    Honestly, I've never made anything from this cookbook, but I love the Sopranos and the pictures make me happy.
  7. Food Lab
    I haven't gotten this one yet but I just bought it for my brother and he loves it.
  8. Silver Palete Cookbook
    A revolutionary cookbook popularizing French and other European style cooking for the American home. Trivia: the daughter of one of the authors runs Jam Cruise.
