Cookbook Review: New American Table by Marcus Samuelsson: One Nation, Undercooked

Photograph: Helen Rosner / Eat Me Daily
Consider the notion of "American cuisine." Go past the checkered-tablecloth nostalgia answers, the burgers and fried chicken and fruit pies, and what's left tends to be something on the order of "everything." French food can be American, so can Italian, African, Asian, Indian. And that's not even touching on [...]

The smaller and — more importantly — cheaper edition of Heston Blumenthal's magnum opus The Big Fat Duck Cookbook is now available. Appropriately titled the de-Biggened The Fat Duck Cookbook (Amazon), the two books are completely identical in terms of content; essentially it's a scaled down version of the [...]

Our books editor Helen might not have liked Babycakes (Amazon), the cookbook from New York's eponymous vegan bakery, all that much, but that doesn't seem to matter to them: per Publisher's Marketplace, the team behind the first book has signed a deal to write a followup for publisher Clarkson Potter. Babycakes Covers the Classics ... [...]

And so the deluge begins. Hot on the heels of Publishers Weekly's list of the best book of 2009 comes Amazon's editors' take on the year in print. Frank Bruni's Born Round — which topped PW's nonfiction best-of — takes Amazon's 28 spot overall, with Momofuku hot on its heels at number 31. Michael Ruhlman's [...]

Food Books Dominate Publishers Weekly's Best Books of 2009

Forget about the body being cold — 2009 isn't even dead, and Publisher's Weekly is already calling the best books of the year. Notable, though, is PW's top pick for nonfiction, Frank Bruni's memoir Born Round, which they call "wonderfully honest." Farther down the Top 10 Nonfiction is the Ferran Adrià investigation Food for Thought, [...]
