I'm hunting recipes for the next Genius cookbook (for beginners) and I need your help! I'll be asking a series of questions here on the Hotline as I develop the book, and I'd be very grateful for the community's wisdom, as always.
This week, I'd love to hear about the first resource (cookbook/TV show/magazine/etc.) that made you feel excited and confident in the kitchen. I know some of you shared yours in last week's question, but maybe this will inspire some other memories! For me, it was Alton Brown's Good Eats on the Food Network. I still remember him describing an ideal texture for French toast that I'd never considered (custardy) and what it took to get it (letting very stale bread have a long time to chill and soak up the custard—not the quick dips I'd always done).
Here's a bit more on the book: https://food52.com/blog...
Thank you all,
