Here are cookbooks that I have cooked from and would recommend if you are looking for new recipes and ideas:


Try Chef Nancy Silverton’s Funghi misti, fontina, taleggio, and thyme pizza. One of the best I have ever had!

See Nancy Silverton’s Recipe Here.

This is one of my favorite cookbooks. The book pairs a farmer with a chef in every recipe and highlights the farm fresh ingredients used in the recipe.

Cremini-Filled Cheese Brioche, Tacos with Green and Seared Onions, and Burrata with Speck, Peas, and Mint are some of the recipes you should definitely try.

I plan to cook more recipes from this cookbook, especially after trying out Chef David Chang’s Recipe of Steak Lettuce Wraps with Kimchi.

How this book manages to make recipes simple and so delicious I really have no idea, but regardless, it does.

Try the Chicken Marbella Recipe for dinner tonight.  

Julia della Croce does such a great job sharing both unique and classic Italian recipes. It’s what you would want to cook to live the ‘Italian Home Cooking’ experience.

See my adaptation of her Sweet Pork Sausages with Roasted Black Grapes Recipe here.

If you are looking for a must-have cookbook with too many recipes to finish, this would be it.

See the 1967 NY Times Veal Chops Beau Sejour Recipe here.

Are you looking for something more than just a cookbook? Chef Grant Achatz’s Alinea focuses on molecular gastronomy and food transformation.

See the Alinea Cheese in Cracker Recipe here.

All about crab cakes! You really shouldn’t doubt Chef Tom Douglas’s talent in anything seafood.

See his Crab Cake BLT recipe here.
