Cook You Want to Be

Cook You Want to Be

Baraghani, Andy
$35.00
Beloved food writer and social media star Andy Baraghani helps you define and develop your personal cooking style--and become the cook you want to be--in more than 100 recipes.

"This book is full of things I want to make and cook."--Yotam Ottolenghi

ONE OF THE MOST ANTICIPATED COOKBOOKS OF 2022--Time, Delish, Food52

Andy Baraghani peeled hundreds of onions at Chez Panisse as a teenage intern, honed his perfectly balanced salad-making skills at Estela in New York, and developed recipes in the test kitchens of Saveur, Tasting Table, and Bon Appétit. It took him all those years to figure out the cook he wanted to be: a cook who is true to his Persian heritage, a fresh-vegetable lover, a citrus superfan, and an always-hungry world traveler. In The Cook You Want to Be, Baraghani shows home cooks on how to hone their own cooking styles by teaching the techniques and unexpected flavor combinations that maximize flavor in minimal time.

At Bon Appétit, Baraghani created a bevy of viral recipes--from Tahini Ranch to Fall-Apart Caramelized Cabbage--that became household staples. Here, he follows up with more umami-rich dishes, beautiful and restaurant-worthy meals (that take half the time), and well-known dishes recast in utterly delicious ways. Among his debut cookbook's 100 recipes, new surefire hits include Caramelized Sweet Potatoes with Browned Butter Harissa; Sticky, Spicy Basil Shrimp; and Tangy Pomegranate-Chicken. Cooks will find inspiration to riff on, quick meals for hurried weeknights, condiments galore, and memorable meals to impress dinner guests. In essays throughout the book, Baraghani shares convictions (why everyone must make his beloved Persian egg dish, kuku sabzi) and lessons to live by (the importance of salting fish before cooking it).

The Cook You Want to Be is a trove of go-to recipes and knowledge, stunning photographs, and delicious, simple home cooking for modern times.

Good Enough

Good Enough

Brown, Leanne
$19.95
You've got this!
Good enough is a cookbook, but it's as much about the healing process of cooking as it is about delicious recipes. It's about acknowledging the fears and anxieties many of us have when we get in the kitchen, then learning to let them go in the sensory experience of working with food. It's about slowing down, honoring the beautiful act of feeding yourself and your loved ones, and releasing the worries about whether what you've made is good enough. It is.

A generous mix of essays, stories, and nearly 100 dazzling recipes, Good Enough is a deeply personal cookbook. It's subject is more than Smoky Honey Shrimp Tacos with Spicy Fennel Slaw or Sticky Toffee Cookies; ultimately it's about learning to love and accept yourself, in and out of the kitchen.

People Who Love to Eat Are Always the Best People

Child, Julia
$18.95

Dinner in French

Dinner in French

Clark, Melissa
$37.50
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - The beloved author of Dinner in an Instant breaks down the new French classics with 150 recipes that reflect a modern yet distinctly French sensibility.

"Melissa Clark's contemporary eye is just what the chef ordered. Her recipes are traditional yet fresh, her writing is informative yet playful, and the whole package is achingly chic."--Yotam Ottolenghi

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST COOKBOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR - Delish - Library Journal


Just as Julia Child brought French cooking to twentieth-century America, so now Melissa Clark brings French cooking into the twenty-first century. She first fell in love with France and French food as a child; her parents spent their August vacations traversing the country in search of the best meals with Melissa and her sister in tow. Near to her heart, France is where Melissa's family learned to cook and eat. And as her own culinary identity blossomed, so too did her understanding of why French food is beloved by Americans.

Now, as one of the nation's favorite cookbook authors and food writers, Melissa updates classic French techniques and dishes to reflect how we cook, shop, and eat today. With recipes such as Salade Nicoise with Haricot Vert, Cornmeal and Harissa Soufflé, Scalloped Potato Gratin, Lamb Shank Cassoulet, Ratatouille Sheet-Pan Chicken, Campari Olive Oil Cake, and Apricot Tarte Tatin (to name a few), Dinner in French will quickly become a go-to resource and endure as an indispensable classic.

Scott says: This is a lovely, lively, and delicious book from a seasoned staff writer for the New York Times Food section, perfect for home cooks looking for a more relaxed, contemporary, and healthy way to make great French food, from French Onion Soup with Grilled Gruyére Sandwiches, Truffled Mac and Cheese, and Roasted Tarragon Chicken with Crispy Mushrooms to Asparagus Almondine, Roasted Butternut Squash with Lime and Hazelnuts, Brown Butter Scallops with Parsley and Lemon, Almond Milk Sorbet, and Lavender Lemonade. Bon appetit!
