Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream Desserts

Professional ice cream maker Jeni Bauer won the James Beard Award for her first cookbook, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream at Home. In her new book, Bauer serves up over 100 ice cream-centric desserts, including sundaes and parfaits, but also one-of-a-kind cakes and cookies that not only pair well with ice cream, but that can get crumbled on top and incorporated into the ice cream itself. With Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream Desserts, it’s going to be a sweet summer.

My Paris Kitchen: Recipes and Stories =

Sweets are what made me fall for Bay Area pastry chef-turned-Parisian David Lebovitz (Room for Dessert), but through his blog I soon discovered that Lebovitz’s culinary talents extend beyond confections. In My Paris Kitchen, he features a diverse collection of recipes that he makes in his kitchen in Paris—including appetizers, first courses, main courses, and (of course!) dessert. “Lebovitz is a rare specimen: both a terrific storyteller and a brilliant, uncompromising recipe writer. I’d follow him blindfolded on this journey to the City of Light.” —Yotam Ottolenghi, coauthor of Plenty

Afro-Vegan: Farm-Fresh African, Caribbean, and Southern Flavors Remixed

If you’re like me, you’re a broke, lazy, kind-of-vegetarian/ part-time vegan cook who knows five different ways to make tofu but still feels uninspired staring at that little white block. That’s where Afro-Vegan comes in to save the day! From the author of the critically acclaimed Vegan Soul Kitchen comes an entirely new cookbook based on a myriad of different cultural traditions from the African diaspora. Highly recommended for those who like to read cookbooks cover to cover, Afro-Vegan is sure to satisfy.

Cooking with Fire

Summertime means doing more outside—and that often means getting out of the kitchen and cooking over an open flame. But cooking with live fire goes way beyond the barbecue grill; from roasting things on sticks to building wood-fired ovens, this book tells you everything you need to know. “Simply the most stimulating, thought-provoking, and hunger-inducing cookbook to cross my desk in years. Paula Marcoux has scoured the world for every imaginable manifestation of wood-fire cooking.” —Steven Raichlen, author of The Barbecue Bible series

The Real Food Cookbook: Traditional Dishes for Modern Cooks

Described by the Washington Post as “a cross between Alice Waters and Martha Stewart,” Nina Planck embraces an old-fashioned and diverse way of eating. Her new cookbook showcases traditional, real foods—produce, dairy, meat, fish, eggs—through tempting and straightforward recipes for the beginner or regular home cook. The 150 recipes showcase fresh herbs, good butter, seasonal fruits and vegetables, grass-fed and pastured meats, and whole grains. And the book is absolutely beautiful, too.

Taming the Feast: Ben Ford's Field Guide to Adventurous Cooking

Ben Ford thinks big. In his new guide to cooking with fire and feeding a crowd, he gives step-by-step instructions with photos and illustrations so that you can grill, smoke, or roast a whole beast outdoors—or prepare a “tamed” version of the feast in your kitchen. Taming the Feast has earned acclaim from top chefs, including Daniel Boulud, Hugh Acheson, Alice Waters, Roy Choi, and April Bloomfield, who says, “This is an epic book that delves into large format feasts, so if you’ve always wanted to throw the party of the century, go buy this book! Ben’s instruction and recipes will make you the master of any outdoor cook-off.”
