I got my first copy at 18, when I didn’t know a thing about vegetarian cooking. Now that I have many more plant-based days in my week, I use it from time to time and get comfort from the hand-drawn recipes.

Practical Kitchen Work: The Basic Arts of Cooking

Practical Kitchen Work: The Basic Arts of Cooking

I got a copy of this book when I went to cooking school at Ferrandi. We called it the “brown book” and had to study it like a bible. It’s still a great resource when I want to make something classically French.

Although I have quite a few of his books, I always go back to this one. When I first got it, it really opened my eyes to what vegetarian food could be. I love all of the recipes.

The Wiseguy Cookbook

The Wiseguy Cookbook

I’ll admit it — I use this cookbook A LOT, especially for the tomato sauce and the meatballs. I love Italian-American food. I also think “Goodfellas” is one of the best food movies of all time.
