‘Tis the season to cook and be jolly! Let’s talk cookbooks.
There are two types of people in this world (ok, slight exaggeration here). Those who love to cook and those who cook because they love to eat. I fall in the latter category.
I don’t like owning an abundance of cookbooks and I never buy celebrity chef or celebrity (actors/actresses) cookbooks. But I do own a few favorite cookbooks that have stood the test of time for me.
The Complete Book of Greek Cooking – The Recipe Club of Saint Paul’s Greek Orthodox Cathedral This book has been in continuous print since 1990. It’s my go-to cookbook for my favorite Greek dishes. Opa!
Barefoot in Paris There is no one greater than the inimitable Ina Garten. I love her and I love this cookbook. My favorite recipes from this book are Lentil Sausage Soup, Scallops Provencal and Tomato Rice Pilaf. This cookbook was also on my list for books set in Paris.
Williams-Sonoma Bride & Groom Cookbook This cookbook was a wedding present from a dear friend and I use it all the time. It’s filled with food facts, cooking tips, menu ideas, beginner recipes, advanced recipes and so much more. In fact, if you own just one cookbook, then it should be this one (whether you’re married or not).
Do you have any go-to cookbooks? If yes, please share!
As always, thank you for reading. xoxo, Jane
