In my first book, Dinner: A Love Story, I wrote a letter to my former, newly engaged self, walking her through a wedding registry and advising on the items that would earn their keep and the ones that would end up selling for two bucks at a future garage sale. It was satisfying to read the round-up again a decade later because the pots, pans, and gear I stood by then, I still stand by today. So, since I get asked about gear more than almost anything else, I’ve finally assembled a page of all my favorites (plus a few extras) all in one place. Enjoy!
