Welcome to Cooking Cookbooks
The Story Behind This Site
Cooking has always been a passion of mine and has only been building over time.
Instead of opting for a food meal plan in college after freshman year, I focused my attention on home cooked dinner staples and meal prep for easy leftovers to have during the week. Over the course of college and immediately post-grad, I started gravitating towards making recipes from online publications such as Bon Appétit, Epicurious and NYT Cooking, among many others.
As I dove in further, I started categorizing online recipes into bookmarks from recommended sites and email newsletters that I had signed up for. The bookmarks piled up over time and I always thought I would get to them, but ultimately kept pushing them off. It wasn’t until the pandemic hit in 2020, that I fortunately had enough time at home to dedicate and explore those saved recipes. From there, I was one of the many people who started spending more time in the kitchen and found that I was finally able to go through the recipes that I wanted to make.
Once I started following more chefs, restaurants, blogs and home cooks, I began ordering their cookbooks to branch out and try different cuisines. That kicked off a whole other journey beyond just recipes. The cookbooks shed an extraordinary light on techniques and elements that have transformed the way I think about preparing, cooking and pairing foods. I feel inspired to cook every day and try out these new experiments to get more experience in the kitchen. As I began cooking on a daily basis, I felt compelled to share my favorite recipes and encourage other people to get into cooking, as well as support cookbook authors and the culinary community.
