What is Anthony Zhao’s favorite cookbook?
I have a lot of cookbooks but I don’t really read the details. I only look at the pictures. I see lots of food as I eat different food every day. I already have ideas on how to prepare foods, so I like to look at the pictures and get more ideas. I don’t like to totally copy a dish. The cookbooks do give me so much inspiration though — they make me want to make beautiful dishes. That’s what a nice picture can do. But I’ll do it my style and change it a little bit. My favorite cookbooks are by Jamie Oliver. I like them because the dishes are simple and easy to do, and that’s very important. I can’t spend too much time reading the details of the recipe and going step-by-step; I like to make dishes very quickly.
