Mamushka by Olia Hercules

Olia Hercules knows that there is a lot of misperception when it comes to her home country of Ukraine—that it is cold, vast, and bleak, for example—and her main motivations for writing her new cookbook were to dispel those ideas and celebrate and preserve her heritage. What a wonderful result: Mamushka is vibrant, colorful, and filled with terrific seasonal dishes like Spring Radish & Tomato Salad, Stuffed Cabbage Leaves, and Honey Cake—not to mention divine dumplings and noodles. No doubt the mamushkas from Ukraine and Eastern Europe are proud.  —S.B.

Nopi by Yotam Ottolenghi & Ramael Scully

“Yotam Ottolenghi's latest, Nopi, inspired by his London restaurant of the same name, is a major departure form his popular titles Plenty and Jerusalem. Unlike his other books, this isn’t a chef’s guide to home cooking; instead, it’s a chef offering home cooks a lesson in creating restaurant-level dishes in their own kitchens.” —Eater. Not as focused on vegetables as Yotam’s previous books, Nopi is a collection of Asian-influenced recipes featuring ingredients like wasabi, kaffir lime, miso, and Asian chilies and spices. Not for the beginner, but filled with rewards for the more serious cook.  —S.B.

Martha Stewart’s Appetizers

Martha Stewart’s Hors d’Oeuvres Handbook has been my go-to book for appetizers for over a decade, so I was curious about this new book, which promised a more modern approach. Written to reflect the more casual type of entertaining enjoyed these days, it really is more approachable that its predecessor—and, happily, there is no shortage of fantastic ideas for finger foods, drinks, and more. Any host or hostess would enjoy a copy of Martha Stewart’s Appetizers.  —S.B.

The Mission Chinese Food Cookbook by Danny Bowien & Chris Ying

“Danny Bowien is known for doing the unexpected—the original Mission Chinese Food in San Francisco began as a pop-up inside an existing Chinese restaurant—and in his new cookbook, he again defies expectation.” —Tasting Table. There are terrific recipes in The Mission Chinese Food Cookbook, including Bowien’s famous Kung Pao Pastrami, but the true treasure might be the “conversations” Bowien has with his staff, which give great insight into the challenges and demands involved in the meteoric rise of the restaurant and its chef.  —S.B.

Besh Big Easy by John Besh

I am a big fan of John Besh’s cookbooks—they are always filled with outstanding recipes and never fail to transport me to New Orleans. In Besh Big Easy, the James Beard Award-winning chef and restaurateur simplifies his signature food—including jambalaya, gumbo, and po’boys—making it more accessible for the home cook. “Today I cook more like my mother and grandmother than ever,” writes Besh. It is his wish that we make these well-tested, simple recipes and enjoy the pleasures of breaking bread with family and friends. Let’s eat!  —S.B.

Lucky Peach Presents 101 Easy Asian Recipes by Peter Meehan

I opened this cookbook and my mouth literally started watering. I’ve been a die-hard fan of the magazine Lucky Peach since Issue 1 (“Ramen”) in 2011. However, many of its recipes were not accessible for those cooks without access to industrial kitchens. 101 Easy Asian Recipes changes that. With clear guides to ingredients that might be unfamiliar (but are easily obtained) Peter Meehan and the editors have favored deliciousness and simplicity over authenticity, with results you shouldn’t wait to taste.   — Jocelyn
