POLPO: A Venetian Cookbook (Of Sorts) by Russell Norman
Polpo is the Italian word for octopus, and it’s also the name of a restaurant located in London’s Soho district that serves rustic, simple Venetian bar food.  I have never been (to POLPO or to Venice), but after looking through this cookbook from POLPO’s owner Russell Norman, I want to hop a plane right now and visit both.

You Have to See Ina Garten’s Cookbook Library
Ina Garten learned her craft the way many of us did: by reading cookbooks, trying out the dishes that sounded good, and refining her techniques and making recipes her own along the way. So after she built the studio and test kitchen called The Barn at her East Hampton, NY, residence, it only made sense that she’d want to include an addition to hold her library of cookbooks. Before she had this amazing space, she says, the cookbooks were “piled in stacks.

5 Things Writing a Cookbook Taught Me About Cooking
What’s it like to write a cookbook? I’ve written three, so I get asked this a lot. My friends have made me laugh at times with the perceptions they have about writing cookbooks. It looks so glamorous! (It’s not.) Now you’re famous! (Errr, no.) Can you quit your day job now? (Ha, no.) Perhaps the biggest misconception, however, about cookbooks is that they are always executed by people who know what they are doing from beginning to end.

Savannah Buttermint Ice Cream
Jeni BrittonI remember sitting on the sun-warmed steps of the North Market, taking my first bite of Jeni’s Savannah buttermint ice cream. Peppermint exploded in my mouth, followed by a seductive, buttery saltiness. The creaminess was pure — like an after-dinner mint gone to heaven, removed from chalkiness and artificiality. It melted in my mouth, and I went for another bite.Quite a lot has happened in my life since that June morning.

Spelt Crust Pizza with Fennel, Prosciutto, and Apples
Ancient Grains for Modern MealsMaria and I have the same literary agent, so we were delighted to meet up in person at a recent culinary conference.

One-Pot Coconut-Chicken Curry from The Cookie Editors
CookieHere’s a recipe, and a few more thoughts on this book, which is honestly just as good for busy singles as harried mommies.I see many, many books every year that promise quicker, easier cooking. (Quick! Fast! 30-minute meals!) My tolerance of these books reached a limit long ago; they often feel dumbed-down and slightly disingenuous in their promises of ever-quicker meals.This book, though, doesn’t fall into that camp.

The Best Tip You Probably Missed in The Zuni Cafe Cookbook
It wasn’t easy to settle on just one tip, as there are many excellent techniques in the late Judy Rodgers’ The Zuni Cafe Cookbook (read my review here). I was tempted to highlight her brilliant move of drizzling a teaspoon of hot vinegar over fried eggs to complement and balance their richness. Instead, I landed on this excellent solution for that dreadful moment when you’ve added too much oil to your hand-mixed mayonnaise.

Christina Tosi’s Corn Cookies from Momofuku Milk Bar
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that it is un-possible to pass by one of Milk Bar’s four New York locations or read one of Pastry Chef Christina Tosi’s recipes online and not feel an immediate sugar craving. Just opening this cookbook gave me a sugar rush. Within these pages, Tosi breaks down how she makes all her now-famous recipes. Crack pie is here. Compost cookies are here.

You could create an entire book club based around Real Housewives publications and never run out. Tinsley Mortimer has a novel. Bethenny Frankel has a children’s book about her dog. The Dubrows have an anti-aging book where they refer to themselves as “Dr. and Mrs. Guinea Pig.” There’s almost a dozen tell-all-but-not-quite-all memoirs.

We’re big fans of Yotam Ottolenghi here at The Kitchn, and we shared several of his recipes and thoughts about lunch last month. But NPR snagged a chance to visit the Ottolenghi test kitchen, where his team was currently testing recipes for Nopi: The Cookbook. NPR learned several things about how Ottolenghi’s team tries to test recipes for the home cook.

A Modern Take on Classic Indian Recipes
Whether you know it or not, you’re probably already familiar with Anjali Pathak’s connection to the food world. Her parents started Patak’s Original, the line of bottled sauces, relishes, chutneys, and more that you can find in the international aisle of your local grocery store. But Anjali’s contribution to spreading Indian culture and cuisine takes a different form.

Facebook Is Secretly the Happiest Place on the Internet (You’re Just Not Using it Right)
This may be hard to believe, but there’s an elusive corner of the internet where everyone is really, really, really nice to each other. No, it’s not Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood Dot Com — it’s the world of secret, invitation-only, food-centric Facebook groups. And we believe that they’re some of the few places where the words “happy” and “internet” can coexist.

I Spent an Entire Year Cooking Like Chrissy Teigen
Last fall, I was standing in line to meet one of my idols, Chrissy Teigen, at the Los Angeles launch of her latest cookbook, Hungry for More. I’d spent the past year cooking her first cookbook from cover to cover — and I was finally going to get to meet her in person to tell her about it. But let me start at the beginning. A few years ago, I set a New Year’s resolution to cook my way through Chrissy Teigen’s first cookbook, Cravings.

These Wellness Trends Are Taking Over Fall Cookbooks
You don’t have to go far out of your way (or dig very deeply into the dark corners of the internet) to find vegan, keto, Paleo, or healthier Instant Pot versions of your all-time favorite foods. Cashew cheese sauce is the new “easy” mac. Keto bread is the new Wonder Bread. Zoodles with cauliflower “cream” sauce are the new fettuccine Afredo. Instant Pot cilantro lime rice is the new Chipotle. See where I’m going with this?

Tartine Bakery’s 50/50 Sablé Cookies
Tartine No. 3 was released just before Christmas and I personally know of several people who spent at least part of their holiday break testing Chad Robertson’s innovative bread recipes (Hello, Emma Christensen!) While I love baking bread, I haven’t gone there yet because I’ve been having too much fun playing in the pastry section, which is where I found this recipe for 50/50 Sablé Cookies. Are you familiar with the sablé cookie?

5 Things to Look for When Booking an Airbnb with Family
Once you start traveling with kids, you develop a deeper appreciation for the vacation rental.

Hey, it’s your vacation too, right?

10 Paris Food Secrets the Guidebooks Won’t Tell You About
If I were to guess which city had the most guidebooks written about it, my guess would be Paris. Paris is, after all, the city many romanticize, regardless of whether or not they have actually been there. There is a charm to Paris, a pull for many travelers — it’s a city full of quirks, mystery, hidden streets, and tucked-away gardens. But as a resident of Paris, I am here to tell you: the guidebooks don’t tell you everything.

Why One Cookbook Author Uprooted Her City Life & Moved to Maine
It was December 1982. I had a dream job: Culinary Editor of Food & Wine magazine. I was 26 years old and in love with a man who grew up in New York City. I also happened to be in love with New York (as a suburban girl, I had always dreamed of living in the city). There was no way I was going to give up my job or my zip code. I landed an assignment to write about the best restaurants along the New England coast.

Country Biscuits with Ham & Red Pepper Jelly Cookbook Review & Recipe from Cooking My Way Back Home by Mitchell Rosenthal
Home cooks have to be a careful when it comes to a cookbook written by a restaurant chef. There often can be a disconnect between what it takes to get restaurant food onto our home tables when we don’t have exotic ingredients flown to our doors and a dozen employees to prep them, not to mention years of professional training and the extraordinarily high btu’s of a huge, multi-burner professional stove.

Modern Art Desserts by Caitlin Freeman
When I was facing a significant birthday a few years ago (one that ended in a “0”) I began my celebration at SFMOMA, specifically at the Blue Bottle Cafe with a slice of Thiebaud Cake: a chocolate cake covered in strawberry buttercream and filled with Lillet- and vanilla-poached strawberries. Clearly it was going to be a good decade!

Le Pigeon by Gabriel Rucker, Meredith Erickson, and Lauren and Andrew Fortgang
Restaurant cookbooks are a tricky thing. On one hand, a lot of food cooked in restaurants is simply more than a home cook can to tackle: more ingredients, more technique, more time, more expense. And that’s one of the reasons we go to restaurants, right? So that they will cook all this amazing stuff for us so we don’t have to.

Roberta’s Cookbook by Carlo Mirarchi, Brandon Hoy, Chris Parachini, and Katherine Wheelock
I’ve been eyeing the Roberta’s Cookbook sitting in a stack of cookbooks on my kitchen counter for a few weeks now. I’ve never been to Roberta’s, a pizza restaurant located in a cement bunker somewhere in Brooklyn. But Roberta’s legend is far-reaching and I’ve certainly heard of the joint, probably first through a podcast from Heritage Radio Network, which broadcasts shows about food and other cool things.

Cooking From Buvette Is Almost As Good As Going There

The A.O.C. Cookbook by Suzanne Goin and Caroline Styne
Suzanne Goin’s previous cookbook, Sunday Suppers at Lucques, is one of my top favorite cookbooks of all time. I love it for its casual elegance, for its tried and true restaurant-tested recipes that are also accessible to the home cook. Not a beginner’s cookbook, it is aspirational but within reach, a perfect balance of professional technique and warm, inviting recipes that make you want to invite a bunch friends over to dinner right now!

Sweet by Valerie Gordon
I’ll admit that I starting off judging this book by its cover. Not that Sweet doesn’t have a nice cover; as you can see above, it’s very enticing. But when my review copy arrived in the mail several weeks ago, I just assumed this was another average sweets/baking cookbook, and while I do bake on occasion, it’s really not where my passion lies.

Nigellissima by Nigella Lawson
Italian cuisine is near and dear to many of our hearts, and so I think we can all nod in understanding when Nigella Lawson says, “It was when I was sixteen or seventeen that I decided to be Italian.” Nigellissima is an ode to her younger self and to the food she fell in love with way before Nigella Lawson became a household name. These are simple, nourishing Italian dishes that are as satisfying to make as they are to eat.

Sicily from Phaidon Press
To capture the entire sense of a place between the covers of one cookbook is no small task. Yet, here is a photo of bobbing fishing boats that feels so close that I can practically smell the salt water. And a woman making fresh couscous that I want to scoop with my hands, and a basket of silvery fresh-caught anchovies for dinner, and spirals of yellow pasta, and…and…and. Sicily is one of those cookbooks that transports and inspires.

The Glorious Vegetables of Italy by Domenica Marchetti
Maybe vegetables aren’t the first thing to jump to mind when you think of Italian cuisine, but that’s about to change. After all, what goes on top of our pizzas, gets tossed with our pastas, and is stirred into our risottos? That’s right: fresh, seasonal vegetables. Domenica Marchetti is here with her latest book of Italian cuisine to make sure we don’t forget about all the beautiful — nay, glorious!

In Memory of Marcella Hazan
From Marcella Hazan’s post in 2011: Cooking Still Matters It was announced yesterday that beloved cookbook author and teacher Marcella Hazan passed away after 89 years on this planet. For American cooks of a certain generation, she was instrumental in opening up the world of authentic Italian cuisine when she published The Classic Italian Cookbook in 1973. The fact that several of her books from those early years are still in print to day is a testimony to her skills and expertise.

Chrissy Teigen’s first cookbook, Cravings, took care of practically all of my gift-giving needs for an entire year. Everyone in my life seemed to want it, from very serious cooks to people who don’t cook at all. And even though people might initially have been skeptical of a celebrity cookbook in general and a supermodel’s cookbook in particular, Cravings was an enormous bestseller.

John Legend Shares His Favorite Recipe in Chrissy Teigen’s New Cookbook
