These titles will give you the cooking bug again, guaranteed.
If you follow me on Snapchat (@SavvyHome) or Instagram, you may have seen me wandering around my favorite Montreal cookbook store a few weekends ago. I was initially there to find a gift for a friend, but I was blown away by how many incredibly cool new cookbooks just came out this Fall.
Here’s a round-up of my best new cookbooks to try this Fall… Buy one for yourself, or check off the foodies on your Christmas list early! These titles are guaranteed to bring you back into the kitchen for long evenings of wine, cooking and fun with friends.
Tulum’s most talked about restaurant Hartwood just came out with a cookbook. I’m so eager to check out this restaurant when I’m in Mexico next year, but in the meantime I can at least try my hand at the recipes that made them world-famous.
The Nomad Cookbook
Anyone who’s ever had NoMad‘s chicken pot pie can attest that this new book is a must-have for innovative yet simple, hearty cooking. Test your culinary skills against one of New York City’s best restaurant.
The Mission Chinese Cookbook
During Canadian Thanksgiving this year, my niece and uncle treated the whole family to a traditional cooking Chinese feast. Neither of them are Asian, but my uncle lived in Shanghai years ago, and my niece recently did a student exchange in Hong Kong. Their passion for cooking Asian food is contagious, so I want to learn more with The Mission Chinese Food Cookbook.
I couldn’t make this list without leaving out Montreal Cooks, a Montreal cookbook, written by the owner of the above-mentioned cookbook store, Appetite for Books. It features 80 recipes from 40 of Montreal’s most talented chefs and let me tell ya, this city is full of them!
It’s no secret around here that Yotam Ottolenghi is one of my favorite chefs, so you can bet that his new book Nopi will make its way into my kitchen stat. I hope it features a new variation on his delicious stuffed eggplants.
