Star Chef Cookbooks

Ora | Aug 26, 2006 03:43 AM

OK-I'm considering adding a few "star chef" cookbooks to my collection, e.g. Bouchon is high on my list, so is Flavor by Rocco Dispirito. However, some cookbook reviews complain about non-tested recipes. I have encountered this as well in non-star chef cookbooks.

Would anyone care to recommend favorite "star chef" cookbooks that have proven home-kitchen-tested recipes that work when carefully followed? Also, which cookbooks are notorious for not having tested workable recipes (just curious). I notice Thomas Keller's french Laundry cookbook claims to have homes tested recipes--I rarely see this claim.

I look forward to your recommendations. Thanks.
