I’ve learned more from Berry than anyone else about how best to engage with nature, and how to write a sturdy and pleasing english sentence.

I can’t risk losing my first edition of ‘The French Laundry Cookbook’, which I think is an iconic book. It’ll be around forever; no other American cookbook has encapsulated a chef’s philosophy better than his.

I fell in love with food in France, and when I came back home, I wanted to eat the same way. I went over to my little local bookstore/cookware shop, and I was lucky to find a book by Elizabeth David. I just started cooking out of that book, from beginning to end. It was ‘Summer Cooking’, her Provencal cookbook.

What Tyler Cowen says

This is ostensibly a cookbook, but the preparations are too complicated for most of us to actually cook from. Skip the recipes and enjoy this as a splendid cultural atlas of history, culture, and also photography. After you read this book, you will want to visit the region three more times and I don’t mean Cancun.
