Martin Philip, "baker, author, banjoist," won the 2018 Vermont Book Award for Baking Bread this gorgeous one - two punch of memoir and cookbook. Beautifully prose, gorgeous pictures, but it must be said, the baking recipes are intimidating. I sat down one morning with the dense second section of this book "Method" and my bread-making game grew exponentially! My baking Bible. ~ Reviewed by Dafydd Wood

I picked up a copy of this for my first apartment and it’s amazing! This is a cookbook that sort-of-but-not-really home cooking people like me can handle: simple, inexpensive recipes for every meal of the day that are healthy, but not too healthy. Each recipe catches your eye and makes your stomach growl in anticipation. This is a great cookbook for someone who doesn’t have a lot of time in the day (for example, I work everyday of the week and am rarely energized enough to make a fancy schmancy meal) but wants to eat healthier and make their own meals that they can be proud of. My favorite section of the book had to be the breakfast recipes! ~ Reviewed by Kirstin Swartz

Published: Clarkson Potter - November 5th, 2019

This is one of my very favorite cookbooks of the last few years. Literally everything in it looks great. I want to cook something on every page. And I can attest that the Cornbread Dressing and the Pureed Parsnips are DIVINE (and all of my relatives on Thanksgiving agree!). More than simply a collection of wonderful recipes, it is a repository of African American culinary culture. James Beard Award-winner Tipton-Martin has spent much of her life tracing the history of talented, professional black cooks obscured by stereotypes. Here, she collects and updates over 100 recipes from her collection of over 400 historical cookbooks. Get it for the recipes, keep it for the salvaged history and memory, and enjoy passages like, “How did macaroni and cheese get so black?” Spoiler: Thomas Jefferson’s Paris-trained enslaved chef, James Hemings. ~ Reviewed by Dafydd Wood

I consider myself normal when it comes to wine. Meaning, I know my colors and whether I like something or not. But the rest is confounding. UNTIL NOW. Demystifying and "de-snobbifying" buying, sipping, and pairing as well as providing entertaining lessons on geography and wine making, this is the wine book for all the normal people. Great price!! I'll drink to that. ~ Reviewed by Stan Hynds

Does the idea of throwing a dinner party intimidate the heck out of you? Alison Roman is here to show you how fun, relaxed, and delicious hosting your next gathering can be. From pre-dinner snacks (check out the crispy haloumi with honey and pistachio) to main courses (kimchi-braised pork!), this cookbook, like any good party, is pleasure-packed. Throw out your carefully planned menus, pour a wine spritz, and chill--if all goes wrong, there's always pizza! ~ Reviewed by Cathy Taylor
