What are Chris Hastings’ favorite cookbooks?
Seven Fires: Grilling the Argentine Way by Francis Mallmann is one of my all-time favorites. Thomas Keller is somebody I’ve always admired. I’ve eaten in all of his restaurants and his commitment to technique and precision is enviable and just blows me away. It’s very compelling to see his food and how his thought process comes through in the flavors and the layering. Every little detail is so well thought out and works in the final execution. It’s just brilliant.
