Even if you prefer to spend your free time in the kitchen as opposed to in front of the TV, or if you like to watch food shows yet hate cooking, you’ll find something worthwhile in How to Cook Like a Top Chef, the latest guide to Bravo’s “Top Chef.” Inside you’ll find recipes from all six seasons of the foodie show and season one of “Top Chef: Masters.” But this book isn’t only about food. Fans can get behind-the-scenes interviews with contestants and juicy trivia. Plus, you can learn how to wield a knife like the pros — chefs, not hit men, obvi! [$19.77, Amazon.com]
