My Pizza by Jim Lahey

What food is more universal than pizza? I can’t think of a single person I know who doesn’t love this dish. So, what makes a great pizza? According to Jim Lahey, the secret to an amazing pizza is in the crust. Filled with 192 pages of culinary insight, Lahey shares his knowledge of pizza making, appetizers, and desserts. Are you hungry?

La Tartine Gourmande by Béatrice Peltre

For Peltre, to cook is to delight in the best of what life has to offer—the people and the places we love. That is clearly evident in her delightful new cookbook, which is bursting with flavor and stories and joie de vivre. “Everything is charming: the writing, the photographs, and the bright, fresh recipes for food you’ll want to make every day.” —Dorie Greenspan

Barbecue & Grill by Stéphane Reynaud

I’m a big fan of Stéphane Reynaud’s previous book, Pork & Sons, which is packed with so many incredibly delicious recipes that even after cooking from it for the past five years, I have yet to find a clunker in the book. I suspect I’ll feel the same about his latest tome, dedicated to grilling and barbecue. (Lest you be intimidated by the fact that the author is French, know that Reynaud’s style is just honest, simple cooking.) From seafood to meat, side dishes to sauces, with this book by my side, it’s going to be a scrumptious summer.

A Girl and Her Pig by April Bloomfield

Acclaimed New York chef April Bloomfield takes home cooks on a tour of the food that has made her a star, sharing recipes which pair her English roots with a deeply Italian influence. “Bloomfield is already someone I admire enormously and whose food I adore…. With A Girl and Her Pig, she’s done yet another extraordinary thing: It’s a beast—and it’s going right up there on the special shelf next to the classics.” —Anthony Bourdain

The Art of Fermentation by Sandor Ellix Katz

I blame Sandor Katz for all the smelly lactobacilli experiments I have growing in the corner of my kitchen. Ever since poring through his cult fermentation book, Wild Fermentation, I’ve been shredding, pounding, and brining cabbage with the feverish abandon of a sailor stricken with scurvy. Wild Fermenation is a witty and pungent introduction to the art of DIY fermentation, but the more comprehensive Art of Fermentation is anticipated to be the bible on the subject, a kind of How to Cook Everything/On Food and Cooking for the world of pickling/fermenting/rotting enthusiasts.
