READ OUR TOP THREE COOKERY BOOKS FOR FALL
Virgin to Veteran: Sam Stern’s Cookery Masterclass by Sam Stern
This stylish cookbook is designed to get 20- and 30-somethings cooking
with confidence. Based around the premise that there are only so many
meals you’ll ever cook, the book’s message is that you should learn how to
make each one special. Inside there are tips on how to master the basics.
We particularly like the diagrams and step-by-step guides that demonstrate
relevant skills such as: knife work, sauce making, and baking.
Bouchon Bakery by Thomas Keller and Sebastien Rouxel
In this dazzling amalgam of American and French baked good recipes, you’ll find
directions for the beloved TKOs and Oh Ohs (Keller’s takes on Oreos and Hostess’s Ho
Hos) and all the French classics Keller fell in love with as a young chef apprenticing in
Paris: the baguettes, the macarons, the mille-feuilles, the tartes aux fruits. These chefs
have spent years refining techniques through trial and error, and every page offers a
new lesson; a trick that assures uniformity, a subtlety that makes for a professional
finish, a flash of brilliance that heightens flavor and enhances texture. The deft twists,
perfectly written recipes, and dazzling photographs make perfection within reach.
