The Paul Bocuse cookbook everyone should have on their bedside table.
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 all-time top picks.
The Chef: David McMillian
The Book: La Cuisine du Marché, by Paul Bocuse (1976)
“If any chef tells you he’s cooked his entire way through that book, he’s a liar,” says McMillian. “I feel that maybe when I get to be 80 I’ll have understood half of it. All books should be judged by it. Unfortunately, it’s also hard to find now. But I have hundreds of cookbooks and that’s the only one on my bedside table, and has been for 20 years.”
