One half of the creative team behind Cookthink, a terrifically smart blog that focuses on basic ingredients, equipment and techniques, Brys Stephens is this week's Bookworm in the Pantry. After law school and a brief stint as a law clerk, Brys worked in sales and marketing for American Premium Beverage (a major wine distributor in the Southeast) and later in PR and viticultural management for Joseph Phelps Vineyards. A native of Alabama, he now blogs and cooks in Washington, DC.
UPDATE. Brys recommended:
- Second Nature
- A Moveable Feast
- Adventures on the Wine Route
- The Food of France (Waverly Root)

We'll have a new Bookworm every Saturday, at least through mid-June.
*As almost every Bookworm has had a hard time limiting the list to five books, I invite any past Bookworm to share another reading list of five books. Please send your list to lydia AT ninecooks DOT com.
