OTTOLENGHI + LALLI MUSIC

I’ve been inspired by and cooking from Yotam Ottolenghi’s books for years, but as of last night, I have a new crush. Carla Lalli Music’s fantastic Where Cooking Begins not only has some wonderful advice on how to shop, how to stock your pantry, and how to master very basic techniques in the kitchen, her voice is funny, irreverent, and really smart. I’ll be working my way through both of these all summer.
