Cookbooks & Food Writing

Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan

Dorie Greenspan is a renowned baker but she is also a fantastic cook (as evidenced in her previous book, Around My French Table, which won the IACP Cookbook of the Year award). In Everyday Dorie, she shares recipes for the kinds of food she likes to make for herself, her friends, and her family every day—from soups and salads to vegetable and meat dishes and, happily, desserts. Greenspan is charming and unpretentious (both on and off the page), and her joy is infectious. You’ll wish you were a guest at her house, but this is the next best thing. - S.B.

Basque Country by Marti Buckley

Growing up, our family celebrated special occasions by going out for Basque food. The food was delicious, and the people, warmth, and atmosphere cast their spell. I am forever trying to make that magic when I cook Basque food at home, and this new book will be a great assist. Chef Frank Stitt says, “Basque Country is one of the most heartfelt, exciting books on food I’ve seen; Marti Buckley makes you fall in love with the unique, real, and rustic flavors and textures of Basque Country, where the pursuit of something great to eat is given cult-like status. There is a purity and honesty to the writing and to these recipes. I will cook from and return to this book time and time again.” - S.B.

Food52 Genius Desserts by Kristen Miglore

Anyone who likes to bake—whether a beginner or an expert—would likely be thrilled to have this book. Like its predecessor, Food52 Genius Recipes, it is a collection of gems from a wide range of sources (from home cooks to famous chefs) that have been so thoroughly tested that they’re practically infallible. Slam-dunk desserts include birthday cakes, brownies, cookies, cobblers, and ice cream. I love the variety of sweets and that they are all given equal billing, whether they come from culinary legends (like François Payard) or someone’s grandma. Genius is genius, after all. - S.B.

It’s hard to score reservations at the Michelin-starred San Francisco restaurant that Eater says serves “wildly inventive and consistently delicious food,” but you can get favorite recipes from the first few years of Rich Table being open and read about the history of the restaurant in this warm and personal cookbook.

Bestia by Ori Menashe, Genevieve Gergis, & Lesley Suter

Bestia is filled with recipes for the rustic Italian dishes—pasta, pizza, charcuterie, desserts, and more—that have Bestia patrons lining up around the block in LA. At the restaurant, they pack their food with flavor by doing a lot of prep work, which is evident in their cookbook. There is plenty in Bestia to challenge experienced cooks (say, smoking, dehydrating, and grinding anchovies) but there is also a wealth of recipes that home cooks can take on and be richly rewarded for. - S.B.

Sweet Home Café Cookbook by the National Museum of African American History and Culture

Visiting the National Museum of African American History and Culture is way up on my bucket list, but until then I’ll be able to experience the food served at its acclaimed Sweet Home Café with this new cookbook. In addition to recipes, it includes notes by the great Jessica B. Harris (I’ll read anything she writes!), which put the food in historical context. “A heartwarming guided tour through African American culinary history that sparkles with all the fervor, dedication, and innovation of the Café itself.”—Michael W. Twitty, author of The Cooking Gene - S.B.

The German Cookbook by Alfons Schuhbeck & The Nordic Baking Book by Magnus Nilsson

Two new cookbooks from Phaidon Press happen to coincide with my ancestry, but you don’t need to be Nordic nor German to share my excitement. Both books are gorgeous and offer a comprehensive look at cuisines with rich traditions. In The Nordic Baking Book, acclaimed chef Magnus Nilsson (Fäviken) captures the Nordic love for baked goods with recipes for breads, pastries, cakes, cookies, and holiday treats. The German Cookbook features delicious recipes from the many regions of Germany, including some of my family’s favorites: Bratwurst, Beef Roulade, and Dresden-Style Christmas Stollen. Enjoy! - S.B.

All About Cake by Christina Tosi

The newest book from Our Lady of Delicious Cakes, Christina Tosi (of Milk Bar fame) does not disappoint. You’ll find recipes for classics with a twist—like a raspberry bundt cake with a grapefruit glaze—as well as some less expected combinations that still sound oddly delightful, like Banana Green Curry. There are sections on cupcakes and mug- and crockpot cakes. I’m so excited about this book, I’m already filling my calendar with birthdays so I have an excuse to work through all the cakes! - Megan
