Food books that changed your life...

genslay | Dec 2, 201008:42 AM

There are 3 food books that changed my life.

• Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential/A Cook's Tour (technically two books, but they came as a single edition)
• Mastering the Art of French Cooking
• The Making of a Chef by Michael Ruhlman

Anthony Bourdain's book got me interested in food in general. Mastering the Art of French cooking helped me expand my cooking abilities exponentially. The Making of a Chef encouraged me to enroll in cooking school.

What food books (cookbooks or otherwise) made an impact on you? Are there any that inspired you, made you a better cook, or changed your life? Are there any that you just found to be extremely interesting?

I'd love to hear!
