Many people will be happy to know that this book will get an English translation:

 

Cédric Grolet - "Fruit"

Great book...I highly recommend it if you are interested in advanced patisserie....but probably not for the normal home baker

Not 2019 cookbooks, but I recently found a trove of cheap, used cookbooks on eBay. To date, Julia Child's Secrets in the Kitchen, Beard on Bread, Mrs. Wheelbarrow's Practical Pantry, and the Best American Recipes, curated by Anthony Bourdain, have arrived. I think there are two more coming, not that I can recall what they are. The whole lot was less than $20, shipping included.

Some other professional releases scheduled for next year:

 

Nobuyuki Matsuhisa - "World of Nobu"

mixed feelings about this

 

 

Richard Bertinet - "Crumb: Show the dough who's boss"

last years we've been overloaded with bread books, so I'll pass even if he is a good author

 


Asaert + Declercq - "Roger & I: 42 chefs talk about their mentor Roger Souvereyns"

Souvereyns made the history of fine dining in Belgium, I don't know what to expect from this book format

 


Nathan Outlaw - "Restaurant Nathan Outlaw"

English restaurant with 2 michelin stars, I wasn't that impressed with his previous books, but I'm curious about this one

More stuff for the next year:

 

 

 

Redzepi René - A Work in Progress: A Journal

I have ho idea if this is a reissue or whatever.

 

Takahashi + Yoda - Wagashi: The Art of Japanese Confectionery

Finally this book gets an English translation, I'm happy cause I'm a wagashi fan.

 

Marcolini + Verlinden + Bibaut - Belgian Chocolate: The Bean-to-Bar Generation

Panoramic on the Belgian bean to bar scene, with interviews and recipes.

 

Darroze Hélène - Joia

From what I understand this book is based on Joia, the new Paris restaurant by Darroze which opened just few weeks ago. Seems way to soon to release a book, unless it talks only about the behind the scenes on opening it.

 

Aduriz Andoni Luis - Mugaritz. Puntos de fuga
This seems to be a treatise on creativity.

Other stuff (this 2019 seems slower than the previous years):

 


Humm + Guidara - "Eleven Madison Park: The Next Chapter, Revised and Unlimited Edition"
This is the revised edition of the second EMP cookbook. It's not clear if there is missing content, if there is added content or whatever if compared with the limited edition. I hope they take the Blumenthal road (same content, more basic package), but judging from the number of pages this does not seem the case.

 

 

Michot Alexandra - "L' Esprit Chapel"
A book about Alain Chapel and his restaurant, with recipes and stories by customers, people from his staff and so on.

 

 

Bruneau + Chatal + Python - "La coupe du monde de la pâtisserie"
A comic book / manga that tells the story of a (fictional?) team competing for the Coupe du monde de la pâtisserie in Lyon.

 

 

Röllich + Carreño - "Bar Chef: Handcrafted Cocktails"
Creative cocktails by a Los Angeles bartender.

 

 

Bombana Umberto - "8 1/2 An Italian Chef in Asia"
The only Italian chef with 3 michelin stars outside of Italy. His style is pretty classic, lots of truffles everywhere.

 

 

Robicelli Allison - "WWE: The Official Cookbook"
After this we just miss a Woody Woodpecker cookbook. I couldn't come with a WWE joke for Woody Woodpecker E__________, sorry.

 

 

Glacier Stéphane - "Tartes et Gâteaux de voyage, pâtisserie boulangère"
New book by this MOF, to be honest I'm not that excited, it does not seem to be on par with his best books. Price is way too high for the number of pages.

 

 

Guichon Amaury -"The art of flavor"
First book by this young pastry chef, king of social media like Grolet. I'm becoming a bit bored by this kind of books. Lot of aesthetic research, tons of silicone molds, after that nothing new.

Picked up World of Nobu and was a bit surprised there are no measurements for anything.  I guess it encourages mixing sauces etc until they please you, but I do find the book a bit strange and not sure it's worth the purchase if you have the previous books.    It is beautiful though.

'Tis the season for holiday cookbook lists.  Here's The 10 cookbooks you’ll want to give — and get — this holiday season from the LA Times. 

 

For those who don't have access to the website, here's the list:

 

Fuchsia Dunlop's updated version of “Land of Plenty,” titled "The Food of Sichuan."

"American Sfoglino: A Master Class in Handmade Pasta,” by Evan Funke and co-author Katie Parla

Sababa: Fresh, Sunny Flavors from My Israeli Kitchen,” by Adeena Sussman, who co-authored Chrissy Tiegan's cookbooks, among quite a few others.  

Josef Centeno’s “Amá: A Modern Tex-Mex Kitchen.”  Like his first book, "Bäco", this is co-written with his wife and former Los Angeles Times deputy food editor Betty Hallock

Raquel Pelzel’s “Umami Bomb: 75 Vegetarian Recipes that Explode with Flavor.”

Lasagna: A Baked Pasta Cookbook” by Anna Hezel and the editors of Taste
"Oaxaca: The Food of the Region, and of LAs legendary restaurant Guelaguetza" by Bricia Lopez, who grew up in and currently co-owns the restaurant founded by her parents  and co-author Javier Cabral

Sonoko Sakai’s “Japanese Home Cooking: Simple Meals, Authentic Flavors.”  From what I can tell, her first book was "The Poetical Pursuit Of Food: Japanese Recipes for American Cooks," published in 1986 under the name Sonoko Kondo.

Alpine Cooking: Recipes and Stories From Europe’s Grand Mountaintops” by Meredith Erickson

Canal House: Cook Something — Recipes to Rely On” by Christopher Hirshheimer and Melissa Hamilton

I thought that one might appeal to you!  The US Kindle price is $24.99, and I thought that was high!

Can you get the Kindle version from your library?  I just placed a hold on the print version of Japanese Home Cooking and am second in the queue.  Unfortunately for me it looks like one I might buy anyhow.

@Anna N  Ed Levine is interviewing the authors of Gaijin - Ivan Orkin and Chris Ying on Serious Eats. You  might want to get a prevew about content. Part 2 will be the book discussion. They are quite interesting.

Yeah.  Somehow libraries and cookbooks don’t mesh well in my world. You read a novel you’re done with it. You read a cookbook and that’s just the beginning. 😁  but thank you for the thought.

I bought Amá, too, but haven't delved into it yet.  Bäco always makes me want to cook, even I don't exactly use his recipes.  I'm hoping Amá will be the same. 

From that list, I also have American Sfoglino, which I expected to be mostly aspirational but I might actually use and Oaxaca, which I bought after hearing an interview with the authors on Good Food.

Too. Many. Cookbooks. 🙃

I have Oaxaca al Guesto by Diane Kennedy, a beautiful book.  Telling myself that I don't need another but in my heart of hearts I know I really do.  Mexican cookbooks are my downfall and I see no hope to change any time soon.  I use them more for inspiration than actual cooking from them. I still have a very old copy of Sunset Mexican Cooking that started my long trip down the conejo hole😉
