It is meant to tug on your heart strings and, at the risk of editorializing, it SHOULD! The recipes in Soup for Syria are the basic stuff of life and have sustained these people for centuries. They aren’t fancy, but as we enter the winter season, these soups are just what we want … hearty and healthful. The likes of Anthony Bourdain, Ana Sortun, Yotam Ottolenghi, Alice Waters and others have contributed to this collection. Proceeds from sales of this book will help fund relief efforts for Syrian refugees. It is the holiday spirit all wrapped up in one single volume.

This is not a cookbook. This is a compendium of the dark arts. Kimchi Cheez-Its. Blue Cheese Pretzels. Tang Toast. With quick desserts, to full meals, to eyebrow-raising apps, to snacks perfect for nights of questionable decision making, this book is one of the most exciting and interesting collections of recipes out there.

If you're like me, and love to eat but hate cooking and cleaning, this is the cookbook you’ve been waiting for! Delicious, healthy single serving meals that take less than 20 minutes to prepare and don’t use anything that can’t be put in the dishwasher. I recommend the scrambled eggs!

From the authors of Plenty and Jerusalem just in time for the cook on your gift list. What i love about Ottolenghi's recipes is that they always turn out as hoped and usually look just as good as the photos.  Page 126 is really good and p122 was excellent.  The soups are delicious and p46 would be great for a holiday accompaniment. And there is a baking chapter too - p224 I'm coming for you!   Enjoy.

Saltie is a tiny sandwich shop in Brooklyn that my daughter adores. She gave me their cookbook for Christmas and to my delight, I savored each and every page.  It has the best focaccia recipe, made to cut into squares, split and use for sandwiches. There is homemade mayonnaise, pesto and pistou...all that will guarantee the most delectable sandwiches. If you think you know how to make eggs, you must read the recipes for Soft-Scrambled and Sunny Eggs Three Ways, even Hard Boiled and Pickled!!!  Buy it, read it, cook from it, you will be delighted.
