The Scarpetta Cookbook
By Scott Conant 
(Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2013)

While this list is populated by many timeless and revolutionary exemplars, we also wanted to include a more recent work from a talented chef who's been making culinary waves from NYC to Beverly Hills to Miami. Scott Conant of Scarpetta fame has penned a beautiful ode to his rustic-yet-elevated Italian cuisine. The Scarpetta Cookbook features 125 approachable recipes, from his famous Stromboli bread to a classic Scarpetta Spaghetti with tomato sauce to Sicilian spiced duck, as well as cooking techniques (e.g. making pasta) amateurs can implement in the comfort of their own kitchens.
