These cookbooks are some of my personal favorites that every foodie needs to have in their kitchen arsenal! Be a kitchen genius with some of these books!
I seriously love cookbooks BUT I’m very particular about what I buy. I don’t buy them to collect but rather I buy them for inspiration, education, knowledge and deliciousness. With the holidays 2 weeks away I’ve put together my favorite cookbooks of 2017 (and a few prior that still ROCK!) as one of those last-minute-foodie-gifts! If you’re a foodie or know a foodie then trust me, THESE are the cookbooks that they need (and want!)
So what makes a good cookbook?
First, recipes. No I’m talking GOOD recipes. You know the kind that you put your pieces of paper in the pages to flag it to make. The ones that don’t require 473 steps, 63 ingredients and 8 days to make. Second, creativity. Chicken Soup is chicken soup is chicken soup. I’m all for seeing your Aunt Susie’s prize winning soup recipe but I also want to learn something new, creative and inspiring. Third, photos. We eat with our eyes before we even decide to make a recipe. Truth is, if it looks like garbage, most are less apt to make it. With that, check out some of my favorite cookbooks I’m RAVING over this year! These are the books every foodie should have!
Eat Delicious – Dennis The Prescott has some of the most drool-worthy, jaw dropping food photos I’ve ever seen. And his recipes are outstanding.
If you, or your foodie friend, doesn’t have one get them this: ChefSteps Joule Sous Vide – Sous Vide is the next biggest thing in kitchen cooking!
