My Favorite Cookbooks, Pt. 2
James Peterson is the man when it comes to cookbooks. Sauces remains one of those books that continues to inspire me on a daily level. I've honestly read it straight through at least 6 times, and referenced it countlessly. He has a concise, brilliant way of breaking down sauces by step and technique, making it easy to adapt, and often gives more than one way of making the same sauce instead of telling you there's only one way of doing anything. That remains my philosophy on cooking, and is only heightened by my worship of Fredy Giradet's style... but more on that later.
This book is a must have for any serious cook.
