INSPIRING READS & MOVIES
My favorite Foodie Movies
The Hundred Foot Journey – Sweet love story and mouth watering Indian cuisine
Chef – Happy music and a tribute to the “follow your heart” theme
No Reservations – I can’t get enough of this soundtrack. Love it!
Like Water for Chocolate – Love story in Mexico
Julie & Julia – Inspiration from one of the world’s greatest cooks, Julia Child
Great Foodie Reads and Cookbooks – obviously not an exhaustive list:
I collect cook books by the dozen both hard copies and electronic versions. However, if I haven’t browsed through them in the past year or so, I pass them on to others who may make better use of them or delete them from my compendium. The older I get the less clutter I want in my life. For me, these are keepers!
I love Sean Brock’s philosophy (natural, local), the fact that his recipes are southern and the gorgeous photographs in this book. I love this hardback!
Among my digital cookbooks, I’m a super fan of Cooking for Geeks, seeing as I’m a self proclaimed geek myself.
David Arnold takes cocktail making to a whole new. It makes fascinating reading! And I thought I knew how to make a mean gin & tonic!
Some of my all time favorite books are from The Beautiful Cookbook Series. Gorgeous photos and foolproof recipes (which is always a good thing).
Delia Smith’s books are some of my all time favorite! Some of her recipes are basic. Others are creative and simple delicious! And for they always work!
Jamie Oliver is funny. His recipes fun. Easy to follow.
Marcus Wareing has to be one of my favorite Michelin Star Chefs. His London restaurants are not to be missed!
This book has few recipes but they are very detailed with beautiful photographs. His Bar Boulud in London and Daniel in NYC are a must!
Any you think I’ve missed?
