Once again I co-hosted a food storytelling and reading series this year, and was exposed to a multitude of cookbooks as well as food and drink books.
These are the six food and drink books I have most recommended to friends, family, and anyone else who has crossed my path.
What was your favorite food and/or drink book of 2014?
Ava Chin's Eating Wildly is a captivating memoir of love and urban foraging.
Heritage captures Sean Brock's love for the local agriculture of South Carolina in the recipes from his restaurants Husk and McCrady’s as well as illuminating essays.
Yotam Ottolenghi impresses again with Plenty More, a cookbook that expands beyond the Middle Eastern influences of his earlier books and offers fresh (and delicious) insights into cooking with vegetables.
Gabrielle Hamilton's cookbook is uniquely laid out like a restaurant's recipe book, and filled with the dishes that have made Prune one of NYC's finest dining establishments.
Warren Bobrow has been called "the cocktail whisperer" for good reason, he is a master at mixing restoratives. These cocktails are hearty without being overpowering and magnificently balanced, this is the drinks book of the year.
