Chef Karen Hatfield constantly refers to this great 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: Karen Hatfield, The Sycamore Kitchen in Los Angeles
The Book: Culinary Artistry by Andrew Dornenburg and Karen Page (1996)
“My husband [Quinn Hatfield] and I have hundreds and hundreds of cookbooks, but one we both constantly refer to is Culinary Artistry. It’s a great reference source for seasonality and ingredients that go great together. It’s a staple for chefs, and also a terrific book for the home cook because it’s like an encyclopedia and it helps get the creative juices flowing.”
