Buon Giorno, Good Morning Steve,
Interesting as well as helpful post ...
*** For Italian gastronomy: I research only in Italian
*** For Spanish, South American, Mexican epicurism: I research only in Spanish
*** For Portuguese & Brazilian cuisines: I research in Portuguese
I have also used:
Gordon Ramsey´s recipes, however, I have 3 books of his books.
Mario Batalli and José Andrés: Have several of their books and have been to their restaurants and have interviewed both of them
Bobby Flay: he has a couple of interesting takes on Savannah classics, which I have employed ...
Kind regards, have lovely Wkend and great August,
