There is a lot of African American history and culture packed in this cookbook and one of my favourite parts is the stories behind each recipe. Learning about cultures that provide us with our favourite foods today is necessary. The history and recipes are there, but it's up to us to put in the work. Recipes I recommend (so far): Baked Macaroni & Cheese, Hibiscus & Ginger Sweet Tea, and Sweet Potato Pie!

I’ve picked up this book every weekend for the past few months as I check ratios or timing for one of the many ferments currently bubbling away. If you’re looking to use your radish and carrot tops, preserve your farmer’s market bounty, or make something salty for those hot, sweaty days, this is the fermentation handbook!

Full of very accessible but always interesting and flavorful vegetarian recipes. Lately I've been cooking from this book or the author's blog, Cookie and Kate, multiple times per week. My favorites are the sweet potato black bean enchiladas and chickpea tikka masala, both of which use a lot of pantry staples!

Korean cooking has always looked intimidating to me, but I can tell you that this cookbook is the perfect introduction to Korean cooking for beginners! Some of my favourite recipes are: soy-marinated 7-minute eggs, kimchi stew, broiled branzino, marinated cucumbers, and vegetable fritters. You can find ALL the ingredients you need for this cookbook at HMart in Central Square. If you're short on time and money, some of the ingredients can be found at local grocers also. The recipes are very beginner friendly and there are great visual steps to help you out. If you love Korean food and want to make some delicious food at home, this book is for you and for everyone in your life that loves Korean food too. Cheers!

I love cooking, but I HATE shopping for food, so this cookbook has saved/changed my life. This has become an important part of Wednesday Night Dinner at my house: cook time under half an hour, cost under $20, and several meals worth of food that tastes as fancy as eating out! Try the Flaky Pastry Chicken Pesto (pg 114)!

Noma Guide to Fermentation

 

One of the world’s greatest restaurants lets you in on its secret ingredients. With a little patient diligence any home chef can use fermentation to vastly expand the flavors they can create. I’ve already made two batches of lacto-tomatoes (my gazpacho will never be the same!). For the foodie, the scientist, and the home cook looking to take a big step forward.
