7. Cookbooks

Everyone owns a cookbook or two, or maybe more, but the cookbook shelf of a foodie will be distinguishable as they will own one or more of the following cookbooks:
  • The Cook’s Companion by Stephanie Alexander;
  • On Food and Cooking by Harold McGee;
  • Larousse Gastronomique; 
  • Ratio by Michael Ruhlman; and 
  • some cookbooks from reputable, world renowned chefs (for example, Thai Food by David Thompson or The Fat Duck Cookbook by Heston Blumenthal)
