Nice lists.  I checked my black and white composition book labeled Gastronomy and Food History and have quite a few of them in there.  I am especially looking forward to the Edna Lewis , Diana Henry and Edward Lee books.  Just picked up The Immigrant Cookbook which seems very timely.  Unfortunately it is adding more books to look at to my notebook..........

Anyone looked into Saladish, by Ilene Rosen? City Kitchen cooked from it in the NYT today. Looks interesting. I may have to get it.

I thought I would grab a sample (Kindle) copy but apparently it will not be released in Canada until April 3. Very strange.

I believe that Kindle sample is the same as preview option.  You can go to US Amazon and take a look at it.  May be I am wrong and there is a difference...

Thanks.  I’m quite sure it is. My surprise was that it was not released in Canada. I much prefer to read a sample than to use the preview option on the Amazon site.

I wish they would include the list of recipes with previews.  That would help me to decide if I want the book or not.

 I wholeheartedly agree.  A lot of the previews tell you little to nothing about what is actually in the book.  If I can't tell what's in the book, chances are slim to none that I will buy it.

Over at Eat Your Books they are introducing a new preview feature on selected books including one to two recipes from the book.

Saladish hasn't been released as a Kindle in the US either. it's only on the site as a pre-order and no preview or sample is available yet. It's going to be released April 3 in both countries. But the hard-cover is available already - that's strange!

Amazon didn't offer the preview option in the US, either.

Looking forward to the release of In the French Kitchen with Kids in July. Written by Mardi Michels - who is the teacher who invites me a couple of times a year to play with chocolate with her after school cooking club boys. Got mine preordered months ago.

Here is a recent one that checked all the right boxes for me:  A Table in Venice by Skye McAlpine.  Good writing, lots of pictures, fine layout and typography (I can read it!).  Easy to follow recipes.  More importantly almost every page I would like to cook and eat.

Please don't eat the pages.  They will be difficult to digest even after you cook them :)

Go to the Index and you can see the list of recipes. Looks like an interesting book!

I have the Hachisu cookbook on Japan and Shaya's volume. Will probably get the one on Islam in the near future as well, or more likely for Xmas.

 

I've been meaning to cook from the Japan book but I keep getting distracted by my preference for Italian and Mediterranean....so many choices, not enough stomach space.

Here’s a Kitchen Arts and Letters post on the fall releases they find notable: Fall 2018 Notable Cookbooks

 

A quote

Quote

The books are here because we know the author’s work, or because we’ve sensed the excitement building among our customers, or because they’re addressing an unmet need of long standing. They’re not here because publishers are paying us placement fees to showcase them prominently, which is what happens at Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

Which ones are you getting?  I do not think I need another Ottolenghi book.

I know what you mean. I've cooked quite a lot from the Ottolenghi books I own but there's plenty (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) in them that I haven't tried yet.  I feel sort of the same way about Dorie Greenspan.  Ina Garten, too, even though I don't own any of hers.  Both of them do put out rather reliable recipes, though.  

 

I pre-ordered Nik Sharma's Season and Lillie O’Brien's Five Seasons of Jam. I'm tempted to cancel that last one and get the Kindle version (which is available now) instead.

      I have no idea why they blurred the name..
      so i really would love to know the name of this cookbook.
      Has anyone seen it?
      (I think it’s in French.)
       
      Thanks!

      I have Volumes 1 ,2 and 4 of Jean-Pierre Wybauw's Great Chocolate books are for sale.
       
      The books are in great shape!  There is some tape on the corner of the front of volume 1 that I used to keep it together after a drop.  Volume 1 is also autographed by the author (See pics below).
       
      I'm asking $150 for the lot OBO.
       
      Let me know if interested or if you have questions

      Good day eG peoples!
       
      I am going to purchase a copy of Larousse Gastronomique (English, because I cannot speak French as well as most French toddlers), and I am wondering which version you think is better and why? Let your opinions fly freely...hold nothing back!

      Any idea what is the best book for me? I am starting to love cooking, I just got great recipe of sauces from this book "Restaurant Style Barbecue Sauce Recipes" all I need is the proper technique for grilling. Thanks

      With Modernist Cuisine I waited a couple of years and ended up with a copy from the 6th printing run the advantage of this was that all errors picked up in the erratta had been corrected in the print copy.  I am looking to get modernist bread soon and wondered if someone had purchased it recently to check or if someone knew of hand if they have printed any additional corrected runs
