The New Food Lover's Companion
by Sharon Tyler Herbst
A culinary terms dictionary which has almost any English language culinary-based term you can imagine (including many frequently used French culinary terms). This book is excellent as a quick reference for everything from unusual ingredients to cooking techniques to classic recipes and their history. Recommended by Ira Krizo, Christian Chef.
Larousse Gastronomique
The best all-purpose culinary encyclopedia you can find. It speaks of culinary styles & regions, has over 3500 recipes, cooking techniques, and more. Recommended by Ira Krizo, Christian Chef.
On Food and Cooking
by Harold McGee
Escoffier: The Complete Guide to the Art of Modern Cookery
by Auguste Escoffier
AKA Le Guide Culinare or the French cooking bible. This is the defining book of classic French cooking and is very advanced in nature. There are many fun and exciting recipes here, but this is not for the amateur cook. Recommended by Ira Krizo, Christian Chef.
ServSafe Essentials
by The National Restaurant Association
ServSafe is the premier food-service sanitation guide. I would recommend this to anybody to know how to buy and keep food safe through it's life. It would be even better to study the book and take the class to receive your ServSafe certification (all health departments in the US accept this in place of a food-handlers card). Recommended by Ira Krizo, Christian Chef.
