Best New Cookbooks Spring 2017 | Tasting Table

April 25, 2017

Yes, I can create my own cookbook lists, but I also recognize there are a lot of experts out there who come up with some great cookbook lists. And they have an actual staff.

Besides, that’s what The Skeptical Cook is all about: bringing you the news about books and cookbooks, so you don’t have to search!

One of the sites I like and respect is Tasting Table (tastingtable.com). If you haven’t seen it yet, their Spring 2017 roundup of new cookbooks is linked, below. These are my top picks…

Recipe, Dinner: Changing the Game

Released April 2017

Flavor, by Bob Holmes (W. W. Norton, April 25, 2017)

Alton Brown fans, this one’s for you. Geek out with Holmes as he uses science to explain why it is that dessert tastes sweeter when served on a white plate, why spicy food enthusiasts seek out pain and other such mind-bogglers. You might even find that learning about the mechanics of taste helps improve your cooking skills, too.

Out of Line, by Barbara Lynch (Atria Books, April 11, 2017)

“Prominent chef and restaurateur Barbara Lynch has won multiple James Beard Awards, is a recurring guest judge on Top Chef and plays an integral role in Boston’s culinary scene. So it’s no surprise we’re looking forward to her memoir, which promises to shed light on the tenacity required to rise to this level of (justified) culinary stardom.

Notes on a Banana, by David Leite (Dey Street Books, April 11, 2017)

“Throughout his gripping new memoir, Leite manages to apply the same witty yet thoughtful tone that fans of his award-winning website, Leite’s Culinaria, know and love to issues of mental illness, sexual identity, immigration and life in New York City. Expect equal parts laughter (like the time his mother dumped a bowl of soup on his head) and heartwarming stories of cooking with his grandmother.

Unforgettable, by Emily Kaiser Thelin (April 4, 2017)

“What began as a Kickstarter is now a dream project realized. This biographical cookbook shows how food can truly be medicine, even—or especially—for legends like Paula Wolfert. There are more than 50 recipes within, but the book’s indispensable value lies in how Thelin captures Wolfert’s anecdotes, memories and character throughout each section.

Released March 2017

Dinner: Changing the Game, by Melissa Clark (Clarkson Potter, March 7, 2017)

“This New York Times food columnist’s ode to dinner truly puts breakfast to shame. It’ll help you streamline your weeknight cooking strategy and combat any dinner-prepping fatigue with dishes like Turkish lamb chops, asparagus carbonara and the guacamole that proved peas could cause a scandal.

Dinner: Changing the Game, by Melissa Clark

 

Food Fights & Culture Wars, by Tom Nealon (The Overlook Press, March 14, 2017)

“Enjoy your dinner with a side of history, as Nealon dispels myths like whether or not lemonade actually helped stave off the plague in France. And in between these cold-hard facts is some great eye candy: We’re talking everything from illustrations from the 1500s to comical food advertisements from the past century.
