At Milk Street, his cooking school and TV studio in Boston, Christopher Kimball utilizes his recipe-perfecting techniques to make food foolproof. Now, his brand-new new cookbook, Milk Street: New Home Cooking, eschews the extra-fancy prep other cookbooks require while still delivering big flavors.
After TV, radio, and recipes consume his day, Kimball prefers to spend time with a book. He tells us about his favorite books in his own words, and you can look here for more authors' favorites.
In an age of Netflix and HBO, it is easy to forget the power of a words on paper (or screen); words that transport one to any place, any historic era, or even into the future. The printed medium engages the mind because it asks something of the reader: attention, intelligence, and interpretation. When the reader makes this investment, the experience is rich and liberating. Finish a book and one feel invigorated; finish a movie and one feels unsatisfied. The properly chosen word is worth a thousand pictures. -Christopher Kimball
