This is a list of my 10 favorite culinary books I consider to be the base of my cooking, baking and entertaining. I sometimes use recipes as an inspiration for my work.
This is a subject I have wanted to write about for a long time. You see, I have been collecting culinary books for years.
I feel that even when you have it in your genes, the passion for cooking and baking needs to be improved every day, by learning and discovering new techniques, ingredients or flavors.
My interest is in simple, made from scratch recipes from around the world. I am interested also in old cooking books and fascinated by what people used to eat in the past, especially since I moved to the US.
I love going to antique or thrift stores or anywhere I can dig for more American old recipes and books.
Since I graduated the Pastry School in Bucharest few years ago, I started to invest in culinary books in an attempt to learn and improve my skills.
So, today, I thought about sharing with you the 10 most important culinary books I cannot live without.
I buy a lot from Amazon, because I love it. I can compare prices, choose from old and new books, read reviews etc. In general, I love shopping online for that matter, reviews and comparison are the most important tools out there.
Every book you will see on this list, I use and cherish a lot. I recommend them because I think they could be useful to anyone who loves to bake, cook, entertain or is simply a food lover.
Meanwhile, happy reading to all of you!
