Q: Dear Dave,
What other chef’s cookbook[s] do you enjoy reading/cooking from?
A: Hello Cate:
Now that’s an interesting question! I like Jessica Harris (Beyond Gumbo), Steven Raichlen (The BBQ Guy), Richard Sterling (many food travel books), Robb Walsh (Legends of Texas BBQ), and Rick Brown (Grilling in America). For food history, I enjoy Mark Kurlansky (Salt), and I really like the work of Pat Chapman in the U.K., the King of Curries. Some of these people are friends of mine, I confess.
