I read cookbooks like most people read novels. I just really enjoy picking up a cookbook and looking at it over and over again. Of course, I have my favorites. Some are just more loved and worn out than others. For me, relaxing means curling up on the couch with a stack of my favorite cookbooks and dreaming about what I'm going to make next.
My Cookbook Wish List:
This book hasn't even been released yet, but I know I want to read it. I've followed the Smitten Kitchen blog for a while now. Always amazed at the photography.
The release date for this book is October 30, 2012. I have almost all of Ina Garten's cookbooks. I swear if I had to pick just ONE chef on Food Network to cook for me, it would be Ina. She is my Julia Child.
I know this is a little far fetched since this cookbook retails at $450, however if money was no object, I would definitely buy this set. It looks like a piece of art just sitting on a shelf.
If this cookbook is anything like their spaghetti sauce, then it will be fabulous. Italian food on the grill seems interesting.
What cookbooks have you picked up recently? Have any favorites?
