Ferran Adria, Jamie Oliver, Mario Batali offer home cookbooks
Fall is cookbook season (bet you didn’t know that, right?) the time when the floor in my office becomes completely obscured by gigantic tomes meant to prepare you for cold winter nights around the table. This year’s crop featured a notable windfall by celebrity chefs. We’re talking Mario Batali, Jamie Oliver, John Besh, Todd English, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Heston Blumenthal and…wait for it….Ferran Adria. But even Adria, the king of molecular gastronomy, is delving into comfort food, homey meals of macaroni and cheese, buttermilk pancakes and Sunday roasts. So you think you can cook? Please check out my story if you want to prove you got the goods.
