Every home cook probably has a food stained and well-loved cookbook they hold most dear. If, like me, you've ever wanted to get a peek at what the world's top chefs have on their shelves, then there's a new book you're going to want to see. The Chef's Library showcases the cookbooks chosen by over 70 influential chefs as their personal favorites and looks at a collection of titles from the last twenty years that define the times in food.
Corey Lee, author of Benu (a best cookbook of 2015 selection), chose a cookbook that he discovered as a teenager:
Tom Colicchio's choice, Unplugged Kitchen, champions home cooking over restaurant cooking
Jamie Oliver used the cover of his favorite, Good Food, as inspiration for his cookbook, Jamie at Home.
Influential cookbooks - these are the chef and restaurant cookbooks that mark the last two decades of innovation and dedication.
