what books should I read

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm in the Culinary Arts certificate course and I have been reading books on cooking and on becoming a chef. I got a $50. gift certificate card for my birthday and I was wondering what kind of books are good for reading on cooking and becoming a cook or chef.:chef:

I assume you are talking about books and not cookbooks. Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain- it's rude, crude and it is a vivid description of what you are really getting yourself into if you want to become a chef. Daniel Boulud's Letters to a Young Chef is another good one, as is Heat by Bill Buford.

I am not sure if this is for you,but I joined "the Good Cook" and got 4 books of my choice for 4$. The best so far was a$90 book-The Professional Chef-CIA. I liked that it's 1200 pgs of basic stuff & stuff every chef needs to know. Managing a kitchen, safety, nutrition,soups & stocks, tools, world cuisines,meats,veggies,pastry,garde manger,etc. It's great & for a buck-totally worth it. I would have paid full price for the knowledge I gained from it...
