cookbooks i love, and use, from chefs i admire
THOUGH I HAVEN’T eaten meat, fish or poultry in more decades than I care to admit to being an adult, I love food (and even cook all of the above for guests). Listeners to my weekly public-radio show will know I interview many cookbook authors who are inclined to garden-to-table cuisine. The selection on this page includes some new and old favorites I’m enjoying at the moment.
Links to stories I’ve written on some of their authors who have joined me on the radio, too, are beneath the grid of cover thumbnails.
