Ali Rosen is the host and founder of Potluck Video, a food and drink website that takes you behind the culinary scene with celebrity chefs, restauranteurs, producers, mixologists and more.
If your New Year’s resolution is to eat less takeout, your favorite celebrity chefs have we got you covered.
Because a good recipe is the greatest motivation to put down that phone and pick up a handful of fresh ingredients, we turned to the pros for their favorite cookbooks of 2013.
Food Network celebs Giada De Laurentiis and Bobby Flay both chose The Chew host Michael Symon’s cookbook, 5 in 5, while Ted Allen and Aaron Sanchez picked fellow Chopped star Scott Conant‘s new Scarpetta book.
Others went with more offbeat choices; Cooking Channel’s Nadia G., for example, loves the cookbook that came with rapper 2 Chainz’s new album, which includes the recommendation that readers get a gold bowl to cook in.
And that’s just the beginning. Hear cookbook picks from Guy Fieri, Danny Meyer and more in the video below.
