Steal This Cookbook

Getting a chef to pick a favorite cookbook is like asking a parent to choose her most-loved child. But F&W pressed great cooks around the country to reveal their top picks of all-time.

The Chef: Hugue Dufour

The Book: Sandwiches by Sarah Tyson Heston Rorrer, 1894

“It must have come out at a time when mayonnaise had not yet been invented. All of the recipes call for whipped butter, perfumed or flavored with the sorts of spices you might add to mayo,” Dufour says. “I think I stole it from an antiques store. I found it in the drawer of a dresser that I quite liked. I don’t even recall having the bad intention of stealing it. Maybe the book stole me.”
