MY FAVORITE COOKBOOKS!
Writing cookbooks means I love to read them, too. So of course I have cookbooks piled up everywhere! I decided to build a room at the barn with lots of bookshelves so I could actually see what I have. This weekend, East Hampton was completely snowed in so I decided it was the perfect opportunity to organize my books. Some cookbooks were covered in food with the pages stuck together and some looked as though I’d never cracked them open, so I was reminded how I keep using the same cookbooks over and over again. For me, they’re often the cookbooks from specialty food stores that have easy recipes that become staples in my house. These are some of my favorites –
Anna Pump - “Summer on a Plate” (Loaves and Fishes)
Sarah Leah Chase – “Nantucket Open-House Cookbook” and “Cold-Weather Cooking”
Kathleen King – “Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook” and “Baking for Friends”
Yotam Ottolenghi – “Plenty” and “Jerusalem”
Here is my favorite Sarah Chase recipe for Orzo with Roasted Vegetables that I make all the time! I hope you love it as much as I do! Happy cooking!
