For the thoughtful cook

For the thoughtful cook

Goin’s first cookbook, Sunday Suppers at Lucques, was that rare book from a chef—a thoughtful, gorgeous compilation of delicious recipes that actually worked in a home kitchen. The A.O.C. Cookbook, named for her small-plates restaurant in Los Angeles, is just as considerate and tempting as its predecessor. Goin is a wonderful teacher, explaining how she layers flavors, chooses ingredients, and more, so that every recipe is like a small, enjoyable class with the master. With wine notes from A.O.C.’s wine director Caroline Styne.

Gift to go with: A trio of Mediterranean staples: excellent olives, salt-packed anchovies, and salt-packed capers
