Vibrant India presents a refreshing take on vegetarian Indian cuisine, with chapters on breakfast, stir-frys, sweets, and drinks. Each recipe is accompanied by its translated name and a story or anecdote to give it personal or cultural context, making the book fun to flip through to learn about South Indian food culture. If, after browsing the many seasonal recipes, you aren’t sure where to start, look at the back of the book for a starter grocery list and tips on meal planning. - Megan

Is there a category of vegetables more diverse than greens? From bitter to sweet, cooked to raw, there are greens for every palate and, best of all, varieties that are in season throughout the year. The Book of Greens features 40 types—from arugula to watercress—and provides seriously delicious recipes (as well as prep and storage solutions) for each. I love how Louis encourages home cooks to get creative with familiar and less-familiar greens by using flavors and techniques from around the world. - S.B.

If you’re reading this, chances are you’re already a fan of Lucky Peach, the quarterly punk-rock mash-up of literature, creative nonfiction, journalism, and food writing originally published by McSweeney’s. This is an issue on steroids, giving just what it advertises. Egg science, history, cultural exploration, stories, and of course recipes from all over the world, from the simple to the sublime, each with an explanation of its origin and ideal form. Delicious and engrossing. - Jocelyn

My mouth started watering the moment I first heard about Shake Shack, two years before I moved to New York (where it was founded). Once I moved to New York, Shake Shack became the go-to any time anyone from out of town wanted to meet up. And any time anyone in town wanted to meet up. And any time for just me. Now that I live once more in sadly Shack-less Northern California, I can’t wait for this new book with (delicious) recipes and stories from the company that is redefining chain food in terms of locality and neighborhood. - Jocelyn

To say I’m excited about this cookbook is an understatement. I am a great admirer of Elisabeth Prueitt, cofounder of San Francisco’s acclaimed Tartine Bakery and Tartine Manufactory. While Tartine’s previous books focused on baking, here Prueitt shares recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. (Okay, yes, desserts as well.) I love so many things about Tartine All Day: the stellar introduction (and her homage to working women), the insight into what a seasoned professional likes to cook each day, and most especially the broad range of delicious recipes with influences from around the world. I’ll be cooking from this book for years to come. - S.B.
