I love reading books about chefs, and food in general. Sometimes I want something more than a cookbook…I want a story to get enthralled in. Here are some books I loved and books I’ve been meaning to read.
What are your favourite books about food/cooking?
Top row from left to right:
Life On The Line: I’m currently reading this book. Grant was a chef at Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry, did a stage at the infamous El Bulli, and eventually went on to run his own restaurant. If you love food and great restaurant experiences, you’ll love this book.
Yes, Chef: This was a book that I read over my winter holiday. It was a page-turner and an absolute pleasure to read. Learning about Samuelsson’s life through his own words and experience made me want to go to his restaurant in Harlem ASAP (not that I need another reason to pine for NYC).
Kitchen Confidential: Probably the harshest of all three books, Bourdain tells it like it is. It’s graphic, intense, and a completely accurate portrayal of kitchen life.
Bottom row left to right (I have yet to read these):
Don’t forget to keep voting on the right!
Have a great week.
