Dirty Candy Cookbook by Amanda Cohen
Amanda Cohen has risen to fame with her vegetable (not vegetarian) New York City restaurant, Dirt Candy. After an appearance on "Iron Chef America" and a growing claim to the celebrity chef title, Cohen is coming out with her own cookbook, but doing so as differently as she does veggies: in comic book style. This book is packed with awesome recipes and is presented with hilarious tidbits about the "truth" of being a chef. You'll love this as much for reading as you will for cooking.
The Picky Palate Cookbook by Jenny Flake
Parents across the country face the same fight come dinnertime: picky eaters. Jenny Flake addresses just how to please those kids while still packing healthy foods into their diet throughout her cookbook, "The Picky Palate". With everything from Weeknight Shredded Chicken Taquitos to Simple Shrimp Scampi, there is something for every picky eater in this book. Say goodbye to the nightly agony.
Flour, Water, Salt, Yeast by Ken Forkish
Ken Forkish's new book, "Flour, Water, Salt, Yeast," focuses on the basics of bread and pizza making. All developed for the home baker, these recipes provide ample direction for the bread-making novice. While working with yeast can be intimidating, with Forkish's simple guidelines you'll be baking bakery-worthy fresh bread in no time.
Jerusalem by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi
Jerusalem is a historical, multi-cultural city with an incredibly diverse set of common food. Including influences from the Middle East, Turkey, Kosher cuisine and more, the heart of Israel's food is in the intersection of its rich history. That overlap is the basis of this book. Filled with great traditional recipes and some much more modern fare, "Jerusalem" will help you bring cuisine from a world over straight to your kitchen.
