CURRENT FAVORITE COOKBOOKS
I would be okay getting paid in cookbooks.
- •Seven Spoons by Tara O'BradyGorgeous photos, thoughtful writing. Everything I've made so far is amazing, especially the biscuits, chocolate chip cookies, twangy blueberry sauce, candied cacao nibs, and Vietnamese-inspired sausage rolls.
- •Bowl + Spoon by Sara ForteI love bowl food. Sara's recipes are always A+. On my list to make: Flourless Stone Fruit Breakfast Crumble, Strawberry Tabbouleh, and Spring Noodles with Artichokes, Pecorino, and Charred Lemon.
- •How To Eat by Nigella LawsonI love Nigella's thoughts on cooking/the kitchen - I read her for the text alone, although her recipes are also fab. (And, once she left a comment on my Instagram. I took a screen shot, sent it to my husband, and couldn't stop freaking out.)
- •Modern Sauces - Martha HolmbergI love this book. All kinds of sauces! For everything! With tons of helpful hints! On my to-do list: Cheater's Carbonara Sauce, Creamy, Lemon Butter Sauce, Caramelized Onion Coulis, Garlicky Potato Sauce
- •Notes From The Larder - Nigel SlaterI am always reading this book. Always. (As well as Tender and Ripe.)
- •Flavor Flours - Alice MedeichAlice Medrich is a genius. Her recipes never fail. Heard her speak recently and learned piles of helpful information in those 30 minutes. She's the real deal.
- •Moosewood Restaurant Daily SpecialI learned how to make soup in college from cooking through this book. Such a great collection of recipes. I always pull it out this time of year for my soup/salad fix.
