In celebration of International Book Week, I thought I’d share five favorite books on cooking, food and delicious inspiration. These are the books that I use, read and refer to quite often, which is why they made the list.
Entertaining by Martha Stewart
I always keep my hardcover first edition (found at a vintage book shop) handy and refer to it often. I think these are her best recipes ever!
Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child
A must-have for anyone in the kitchen, no?
French Lessons: Adventures with Knife, Fork and Corkscrew by Peter Mayle
I laughed and delighted my way through France via Mr. Mayle’s humor and good wit.
Simply Ming: One Pot Meals by Ming Tsai
I love the simplicity and freshness of a quick stir-fry and breakout my woks whenever I can.
Mexico: One Plate at a Time by Rick Bayless
His recipes and techniques are so good, so detailed and so easy to follow.
Obviously, there are many, many more great food and cooking books out there…. These are just the top five that came to my mind. Feel free to share your favorites!
