Fall Cookbook Pre-orders

Fall is super duper cookbook season and I have been doing a lot of pre-ordering lately. Here are few that I’ve paid for and can’t wait to arrive. I am curious, what books are on your list?

Mad Hungry: 120 Essential Recipes to Feed the Whole Crew by Lucinda Scala Quinn. I have loved the Mad Hungry series since the very first book. Even though I don’t have a crew of teenagers in my house (yet) her recipes still speak to me as a family cook. Lucinda always has the perfect answer when it comes to putting a fresh twist of roast chicken or making a new and exciting salad that the whole family will love.

Classic German Baking: The Very Best Recipes for Traditional Favorites, from Pfeffernüsee to Streuselfkuchen by Luisa Weiss. I am a longtime fan of Luisa’s writing and recipes. Her deep knowledge of the German kitchen is not to be missed. It is rare to find a German-American so in touch with traditional recipes on both sides of the pond. I think German baking is often eclipsed by its French neighbor so I am excited to learn more about traditional German recipes and there is no better teacher than Luisa.

French Country Cooking: Meals and Moments from a Village in the Vineyards by Mimi Thorisson. I discovered the magic of Mimi’s life in Medoc last spring was instantly sucked in. Her latest book promises to share a new collection of delicious, accessible French recipes from her home deep in the wine region of Bordeaux.

Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. Dorie’s books never fail to amaze. Her exquisite baked goods are awe inspiring yet completely doable. Baking from her books is like hanging out in the kitchen with you best friend. I can’t wait to crack the spine of her latest tome and start baking.

Cooking for Jeffrey: A Barefoot Contessa Cookbook by Ina Garten. The magic of Ina Garten is ongoing for me. I’ve cooked from her books consistently ever since the first once was released. I can’t wait to see what this book holds and am thrilled that a new show is in the works.
