Had a wonderful weekend celebrating a non-milestone birthday surrounded by friends and family. Excited to start digging into one of my favorite presents, “The Professional Chef,” with the inscription ‘practice a recipe and then make it your own”. There are gorgeous photos and accessible instructions. Thinking this one will be a staple.
Cookbooks are a great way to remember a vacation or a take a trip without leaving your house. Often, they contain beautiful family stories or pictures or tell you something a little more about the culture than you may get from landmarks. Bonus, every time you cook with that book, your toes will be back in sand or you’ll be people watching at a sidewalk cafe.
