i’m a big reader! always reading – very into non-fiction lately too. most recent read: the china study by t. colin campbell, phd.

these are some of my favorite books and cooks, who have all heavily influenced my views on cooking and on life!

tamar adler – an everlasting meal, a book about cooking and food and cooking with economy and grace (as the title states), recipes for NYT cooking! amazing podcast called food actually that pushkin pods cancelled and i’m still BITTER about it!

samin nosrat – salt, fat, acid, heat – the cookbook AND the show on netflix! recipes for NYT cooking too!

alice waters – go eat at her restaurant, chez panisse (in berkeley), for seasonal, local, thoughtful food! alice also gives back to the east bay community ~ with the edible schoolyard project.

michael pollan – any of his books will rock your world. about various topics, ranging from food and plants to hallucinogens. read: food rules for a quick tutorial (it takes literally an hour to read the whole thing) on eating views from around the world. read botany of desire for more info than you ever knew you wanted to know (srsly) on the tulip, marijuana, the apple, and the potato.
