Looking for a gift this holiday season for a budding chef in your family? Well, there happen to be a plethora of cookbooks out on the market and it's hard to know what to choose for someone. I, myself, have many cookbooks most of which are simply used as a reference or guide. However, over the years, there are certain books that stand the test of time and offer the best recipes, tips, and techniques.
Part of sustainable cooking is making meals and food from scratch. Not only is it more sustainable in terms of paying attention to ingredients and where they come from, but it is also healthier for you. However, in order to cook from scratch, you need the skills and knowledge to make good meals and food. These books help you do just that and should be part of any cookbook reference library.
