There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here
I enjoy my Bobby Flay books as well. If you like Mexican, get a Rick bayless book as someone else suggested. The recipes in his 'Mexican Everyday' book are very easy to make on week nights....it changed the way I cook at home, literally. I also enjoy his Authentic Mexican.
Do you have any Thomas Keller books? Ad Hoc At Home is a good one to start with before picking up The French Laundry.
Modernist Cuisine books would also be a good choice. Focus more on books like this to become a more rounded chef, instead up buying a half dozen BBQ books that are all nearly identicle.
