A hearty Merry Christmas to the good folks at Artisan Books, whose holiday bestseller Ad Hoc at Home sold maybe a little too well: Amazon's out of stock on the title, and doesn't expect to be back in stock until we're in the new year. Ditto for Barnes & [...]

The Best Cookbooks of the Decade [goodbye aughties]

While 2009 was full of spectacular cookbooks, the rest of the decade hasn't been too shabby either. With How to Cook Everything (published in 1998) and French Laundry (1999) completely changing the game for home and restaurant cookbooks alike, the next few years were already set up for greatness. Through the hundreds and hundreds of [...]

The Best Cookbooks of 2009 Roundup Spectacular

2009 has really been the year of the home cook. While last year's crop of cookbooks was dominated by technical, aspirational, fantastical documents like Alinea, A Day at El Bulli, and Under Pressure, the front runners this year are all about doability — take Ad Hoc home, take Momofuku home, make your own bacon, can [...]

Farm-to-table is one of those irritating culinary trends that is hard to really stay irritated by. Fundamentally, it's just so darn right: we should be eating seasonally and locally, we should be supporting sustainable agriculture and the preservation of heirloom vegetables. The most delicious food is the stuff that's been harvested (butchered, [...]

IACP Adds Three New Categories To Cookbook Awards

The call for entries is underway for the 2010 IACP cookbook awards (omfg have you submitted yet?), and the field has changed just a little with the addition of three new categories. Recognizing the expanding market for kiddie-chefs and family dinner compilations, they've added a Children, Youth, and Family category; Culinary History opens the doors [...]

The Eat Me Daily Fall 2009 Non-Cookbook Preview

While fall truly belongs to the cookbooks, there's still a large selection on deck for the food lovers who are less than kitchen inclined. Along with anthologies from The New York Times (Eat, Memory) and The New Yorker (Secret Ingredients) finally arriving in paperback form, there are numerous reissues of old greats, doorstopper tomes perfect [...]
