As we’re staying home with the recently announced dining restrictions, we’ve turned to our favourite celebrity chefs and restaurateurs to step up our home cooking game. Here’s a selection of our favourite cookbooks to get you through quarantine!

Cravings by Chrissy Teigen 

Unpretentious but comprehensive, Chrissy Teigen proves her love for food (as if she really needed to) and humour are the real deal with this cookbook. Whether you’re making a simple lunch for two, or saving some of these recipes to try for when entertaining is on the table again, Teigen has everything you need from a Cast Iron Pizza recipe to a class of Herb Butter Chicken and Potatoes.

Everyone Can Bake by Chef Dominique Ansel 

Who would not know the inventor of the cronut himself, chef Dominique Ansel. Say goodbye to the uninspired, tried and overtired banana bread and hello to international storefront-worthy pastries. Pick up Ansel’s book filled with baking recipes to help you hone your skills as an expert quarantine baker. Or you could always pop on over to Dang Wen Li to satisfy your sweet craving.


The Itsu Cookbook 

For a healthy take on Asian-inspired food, the Itsu cookbook, brought out by the UK restaurant of the same name has countless recipes on light, low-calorie dishes that are still dense in flavour and rich in nutrition. Best part? Each recipe can be prepped in under 30-minutes, making it optimal for us lazy cooks.

Craving a Shack Burger with some cheese fries? The secret to the East Coast’s premier fast food burger has apparently been under our noses the whole time. Shake Shack’s CEO Randy Garutti and chef Mark Rosati have released all the famous recipes for classic orders like the ShackMeister, crinkle-cut fries and even the inspirations behind the sandwiches and hot dogs.


Nobu the Cookbook

For fiends of Japanese cooking who happen also to be missing the Michelin-rated restaurant, Nobu the Cookbook by Nobu Matsuhisa (who else?) should do the trick! Being his first cookbook, there are definitely secrets in here never shared before as well as recipes that bring you a slice of the beloved restaurant home.
