Cookbooks

 

I love cookbooks. I love to cook or bake from them. I love to read them. I like to look at the pictures and wish that someone will make a dish for me. I love to make a new dish and serve it to friends.

I love to learn about other cultures through their food. Do you suffer from this as I do? Well then check in here now and then so see what I find. I might just list one, or I might add my comments. I will

for sure note if I've tried a recipe. Send me your recommendations if you find something you just have to share!   Luan

It seems a number of people received air fryers for the holidays. I want to give a shout out to Mockingbird in Oakland where I was introduced to air fried French Fries and also Brussels sprouts. Crispy outside and tender and perfect inside. Seriously amazing food. Something to aspire to with a new kitchen toy.

I like variety, and I'm not fond of leftovers. So this book gives me many ways to repurpose what I have leftover and it looks as if it would take me a while to be tired of the options. I'll give it a shot.

What's better than food and stories? Not much. This gorgeous, yes it matters and yes it sways me, book is full of a wide range of dishes and sumptuous photos. The stories before each section are worth lingering over and the short ones before each recipe are informative.

I was in San Francisco, heading home to Oakland from somewhere or another and stopped at a light. To my right was a simple logo on a window that said Rich Table. It wasn't immediately obvious what it was, the light was just so that I couldn't see in well in the short time we were stopped. A few days later the cookbook arrived much to my delight. From the introduction "We choose fruits, vegetables, spices, or other things we fall in love with at the market. ...  Since the best meals draw upon something personal, this isn't just a cookbook It's also the story of how we grew up, got married, and decided to put our sanity on permanent hold in order to open and operate our dream restaurant."  Think California fresh with a dash of daring and unexpected flavor combos.

This book is beautiful in a different way. The illustrations are by bay area artist Wendy MacNaughton and lend an air of comfort and ease to this incredibly useful book. I learned quite a lot by reading the first four short chapters on the title elements and eagerly look forward to trying out not only the recipes in the book, but also taking a critical look at dishes I make and seeing if I can apply what I learned to make them better.

Can Yotam Ottolenghi do any wrong? I don't think so. His previous books, Plenty, Jerusalem, Plenty More, Nopi, & Ottolenghi, weren't overly complex, but this one simplifies things a bit and should be a great addition to the first-cookbook-gift-giving list.
