We all have it. That one book sitting on the counter. Bent spine, dogeared, bookmarked and stained. It’s the go-to. The favorite. Maybe it’s a collection of family heirlooms, a digital wallet stored on your iPad, a wedding present from your dear Aunt Sally, or a corner bookstore find. A good cookbook can help plan that Thanksgiving feast for 20 or Tuesday night’s meatloaf supper.
For our chefs, they are a source of inspiration, and a education. Just like a any other professional, chefs need to keep up with current trends, and brush up on techniques learned early in our careers. It’s more than a hobby- it’s a lifestyle.
We get asked all the time, “What book should I have in my kitchen?”. So we wanted to put together for you a list of our chefs’ favorites. Some are more reference books than recipe books. But we still think they are great, even for the most novice of cooks. Check out our list below and comment on your favorites. Follow us on Instagram for the latest updates from Friend That Cooks!
