1. Simply Nigella: Feel Good Food by Nigella Lawson

I adore Nigella cooking style and her food language- I show her cooking shows to my clients with eating disorders as an example of a healthy way of eating!

3. The NoMad Cook Book by Daniel Humm and Will Guidara

Francesco Tonelli photography says it all. This book also graced the windows of the the gorgeous new Rizzoli bookstore on Broadway (they do such a great job creating there carefully curated windows).
