Here are a few recommendations from Marta Peppin, an Information Specialist.
Cook it in Cast Iron by the Editors at America's Test Kitchen
This book made me ask for two different sized cast iron pans for Christmas.
Appetites by Anthony Bourdain
A good book but one with very salty language!
Cravings: Recipes for all the Food you Want to Eat by Chrissy Teigen
Interesting recipes peppered with somewhat questionable vocabulary.
My Kitchen Year by Ruth Reichl
Her writing makes you want to be wherever she is and eat whatever she is cooking.
Eat St.: Recipes from the Tastiest, Messiest and Most Irresistible Food Trucks by James Cunningham
Makes you want to run into a fleet of food trucks!
