If you are reading this story, there is a very good chance that someone you know is going to buy you a cookbook this holiday season. There's a good reason for that: You can have too many socks, sweaters, belts and slippers, but no one who has ever set foot in a kitchen has honestly said that he or she had too many cookbooks. That is certainly not to say that just any cookbook will do, however - though to noncooks it may seem that way. Of the hundreds of food books that were published this fall, which are the ones you really want to have in your library?

Most chef cookbooks fall into one of two categories. They're either faithful replications of what is served at their restaurants or they're what chefs imagine people at home might serve their families (they're not really sure because they rarely cook at home since they're, well, at work). Jean-Georges Vongerichten's "Home Cooking With Jean-Georges" is a notable exception. This is a terrific book, full of exactly the kinds of recipes I want from a master chef. There's no special equipment, no exotic ingredients, no long, elaborate preparations.

The frenzy feels almost surreal. By 9 o'clock on a Friday night, heads at Jean-Georges Vongerichten's dramatic new restaurant are swiveling as subtly as the Lazy Susans on the bigger tables. There's Tony Roberts on his way out, and Woody Allen just sitting down. In another corner, Vogue's omnivorous food columnist Jeffrey Steingarten is ensconced with an entourage headed by Gourmet's unmistakable editor, Ruth Reichl.

Hans Rockenwagner has always been a visual-thinking chef. Once he served scallops topped with an inverted eggshell that held a secret supply of curry-caviar sauce. At his latest, Rox, in the new Beverly Prescott Hotel, Rockenwagner is cooking tall . . . really tall. Like Alfred Portale at New York's Gotham Bar & Grill and the tricksters at San Francisco's Flying Saucer, Rockenwagner has discovered the joys of skyscraper cuisine.
