The Food Lab by J. Kenji López-Alt

The Food Lab is my encyclopedia of cooking and the source of much of my culinary inspiration. His book is my go-to, and I bet it will soon be yours. Anything you think you do know or don't know, this book will explain the science of cooking in terms we all can understand.

Unbelievable by Katy Tur
Katy Tur is brilliant, and this closer look at life on the campaign trail is stirring, powerful and could not be more timely! It's also an inside look at what a woman goes through when her life is turned upside down by her job. I’d like to thank her for writing this book. I was lucky enough to meet Katy and have her sign my book, and I will def take her up on her offer to have a bowl of pasta and a glass of wine and NOT talk politics.

Hunger by Roxanne Gay
My God, this book. Beautifully brave, heartbreakingly vulnerable, crazy honest, and so, so, SO relatable.
