In the I’m so busted thread, I confessed to my desire, interest and addiction to buying cookbooks. It gives me great joy, but also takes up a lot of room.
Was just wondering which new to you cookbooks you may have acquired recently that you’re particularly happy with.
Some of my new ones are the updated Land of Plenty by FD, The Modern Art of Chinese Cooking by Barbara Tropp and Fresh India by Meera Sodha. Although I haven’t cooked out of them yet, all of them are impressive IMO. Oh, and Flour, which knocks my socks off. I have a couple more on the way, including Meera Sodha’s first book, an M Jaffrey book and Turquoise by Greg Malouf of the former duo who wrote Hot, Sour, Sweet and Salty. Evidently they split a while back.
Thanks to Christina M (Meera Sodha)and Saragema (M Jaffrey) for the Indian books rec.
How about you guys - bought anything recently?
ETA, was just about to pull the trigger on Flour Too, but looked through the Kindle version I have, and will just stick with that. It has mostly breakfast, lunch and dinner type options which looked good but not amazing, and didn’t seem to have a lot of recipes. I’ve been making her banana bread for years and now it’s the only recipe I use for that.
For you in the Boston area, have you been to her bakeries/cafes and if so, what did you think?
