I contemplated the Bourdain this morning when my BB email arrived. This pushed me over the edge.

 

Me too. I also bought Gjelina today. I don't know whether to curse or thank you and Toliver.

@Toliver, I have an older friend back in Canada who is not interested in joining eGullet but I do pass bits of info on to her now and then from here. She is a dedicated bread-baker and I mentioned this book was on sale and she was so tickled, I wanted you to know that you do make some people's day with your info. (And I would have bought her the book as a gift so that eGullet could get a few pennies from it, but Amazon won't allow me to do that between our two countries anymore, though they used to!)

Thank you! I ordered it right away and I am really going to love going through it. I would never have noticed myself so thank you a lot. That's the second nice thing so far today. A great day.

From today's Taste email:

 

Pickling queen Karen Solomon's "Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It: And Other Cooking Projects" Kindle Edition $2.99US

Sort of Kindle Single-ish (meaning not a ton of recipes). Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes and scroll further down to see a few of the recipes themselves.

 

"Vegetable Soups from Deborah Madison's Kitchen" Kindle Edition $2.99US

 

I've been waiting a long time for this to finally be sale-priced:

Slightly more expensive than the regular cookbooks I post about...
Mimi Sheraton's "The German Cookbook: A Complete Guide to Mastering Authentic German Cooking" Kindle Edition $3.99US

 

I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.

Had to spring for the German cookbook. I do so love German food.

 

Going to be in Dallas the last half of this week. Any great German restaurants there? We're going as a group to some Mexican place that's supposed to be tops, and I may count my pennies and go to Al Biernat's one night.

From this morning's BookBub email:

 

Zak Pelaccio's "Eat with Your Hands" Kindle Edition $1.99US
Use the "Look Inside Feature" to see the list of recipes. IMHO, a lot of the recipes are...unusual. Plus, you can scroll down to see part of one recipe.

We have a new member, @pedromariachi, who lives in Brazil and who recommended this book. When I checked, I saw it was on sale for the Kindle version at $3.99 and decided to grab a copy. 

 

Brazilian Food (by chef Thiago Castanho)

 

 

 

Thanks, I bought the Kindle.  But the book is clearly promotional.  It calls for Amazonian ingredients.

This afternoon I found a cookbook of note at a low price but not the usual sale-price:

 

Gabrielle Hamilton's "Prune: A Cookbook" Kindle Edition $4.99US
Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes for the first chapter followed by the recipes.

One of these cookbooks came in my morning BookBub, and after going down an Amazon rabbit hole I came across the other two. I apologize if any of these cookbooks have been posted before:

 

Charles Phan's "The Slanted Door: Modern Vietnamese Food" Kindle Edition $1.99US
Use the "Look Inside" feature so see the list of recipes.
There are also 3 recipes from the cookbook on its Amazon info page (as downloadable PDF files).

 

Molly Yeh's "Molly on the Range: Recipes and Stories from An Unlikely Life on a Farm" Kindle Edition $1.99US

 

And priced slightly more than the usual sale-priced cookbook:
Dominique Crenn's "Atelier Crenn: Metamorphosis of Taste" Kindle Edition $3.99US
Use the "Look Inside" feature so see the list of recipes. However, be forewarned what may sound straight-forward may not be. From the blurb/cookbook description:
"Even the dishes that sound familiar, like Fish and Chips, or Broccoli and Beef Tartare, challenge the expected with their surprising components and her signature creative plating."

It's a new month but there weren't, IMHO, many sale-priced cookbooks listed this month on Amazon. Here's the slim pickings I found today:

 

Ruth Reichl's "Garlic and Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Critic in Disguise" Kindle Edition $1.99US

 

This is one of the best food books I ever read, highly suggested. It's also a great ode to a friend, big humanity in her writing.

If you like top restaurant cookbooks, then this is more than a must at that price. Those dishes are almost impossible to make at home, so it's not a cookbook with direct use for the home cook. If you are interested in reading the thought process and the personal feelings behind world class dishes, then this is one of the best books out there.

Ouch, sorry. With some luck and patience it will get discounted again.

I already had The Slanted Door.  I've cooked from it.  But I was gouged for $2.99.

I'm guessing you're not in the US.

I just clicked on the link in my post and it still has that same posted price on the Amazon page for that cookbook ($3.99US).

Sorry about that!
