One of my favorite food bloggers, Joy The Baker, is releasing her second book this month titled ‘Homemade Decadence‘ (photo above) and I couldn’t be more excited. A gifted foodie writing about over 100 delicious desserts? This book has my name all over it!
While I am super excited to order my copy, I have to admit that I’ve never really been a big cookbook person. I have only recently become more apt to spend hours in the kitchen and even now, I often revert to the internet or my own creativity for recipe ideas. After sneaking a peak at Joy’s new book, I thought to myself ‘what else am I missing in the world of cook books?’ Alas, I am here to discover some delicious reads.
I decided to find the best cook books out there by turning to my fellow bloggers. I have spent the past two weeks digging into the archives of various food lovers and discovered some of the most highly recommended cook books out there. I have to trust that my fellow foodie bloggers will do right by me so here are some of the must-reads on my wish list:
Heritage (by Sean Brock) is an homage to Sean’s southern culture of younger years in Appalachia and adulthood in Charleston. Not only do you get good comfort food recipes, but they are accompanied by Mr. Brock’s personal stories.
How to Eataly is a must in the kitchen of any Italian (hence why it’s on my list). A cookbook dedicated to all things that help you eat like a my Grandfather did on Sundays.
Salad Samurai (by Terry Hope Romero) will show you how to make the most delicious (and filling) meals from your veggies.
Thug Kitchen is a dedication to real people making real food. Cursing & good-for-you cooking that does not leave a snobby taste in your mouth.
Pastry (by Nick Malgieri) is a book dedicated to the one thing I hope to eventually master – pastry dough recipes. Fingers crossed.
The Baking Bible (by Rose Levy Beranbaum) sounds like the answer to my baking-loving dreams. ‘Foolproof’ recipes for almost any delicious bread/dessert you can imagine.Pin It
