10 Fall Cookbooks We Can’t Wait to Get Our Hands On
Ina Garten (and Jeffrey) included
Summer may be winding down, but retreating indoors with a gorgeous new fall cookbook is one way to dull the pain. Here, ten that look delicious whether you’re in the mood for that latest from Mario Batali…or Ina.
“Small Victories” by Julia Turshen (September 6)
She’s the recipe developer and co-author for all of Gwyneth Paltrow’s best-selling cookbooks. Now—with a glowing endorsement from Ina Garten, who wrote the book’s foreword—she’s releasing a collection of over 400 recipes all her own, including a peach-and-bourbon milkshake and her signature Caesar salad.
“Big American Cookbook” by Mario Batali (October 4)
Two years in the making, the superstar chef’s latest recipe collection features dishes culled from state fairs and local rotary clubs. Think seafood soups (an ode to Boston) and spicy gumbos (à la the Gulf Coast).
“The Sprinkles Baking Book” by Candace Nelson (October 25)
She started the first cupcake-only bakery (and invented the cupcake ATM). Now she’s unveiling 50 of her most popular recipes (OMG, the red velvet cupcake), plus 50 recipes for her all-time favorite non-cupcake desserts.
“Molly on the Range” by Molly Yeh (October 4)
The beloved food blogger’s debut introduces 120 new and inventive recipes for dishes like Asian Scotch Eggs and Scallion Pancake Challah Bread while chronicling her move from Brooklyn to a farm on the North Dakota-Minnesota border to live with her fiancé, a fifth-generation sugar beet farmer. (We know, we know: Hipster alert.)
“My Two Souths” by Asha Gomez (October 11)
The celebrated Atlanta chef marries the vibrant flavors of Southern Indian cooking with those of the deep American South in her debut cookbook, featuring 125 recipes for dishes like Southern Style Port Vindaloo and Fried Chicken with Cardamom Rice Waffles. Southern charm indeed.
“Appetites: A Cookbook” by Anthony Bourdain (October 25)
His first tome in over ten years, Bourdain—inspired by his daughter and the fact that he now spends less time on the road and more in his own kitchen—compiles dishes that he feels every home chef should know how to cook, like macaroni and cheese…and budae jjigae (the Korean army stew).
“The Moon Juice Cookbook” by Amanda Chantal Bacon (October 25)
Sure, it sounds a little bit hokey, but Bacon is the founder of L.A.’s hottest wellness boutique, serving up foods and juices with alleged healing properties. Her debut cookbook includes 75 recipes for things like Strawberry Rose Geraniumum Bars…and Hot Sex Milk.
“Eat Like a Gilmore” by Kristi Carlson (October 25)
It started out as a Kickstarter, but now this unofficial cookbook—featuring 100 recipes that were actually devoured on-screen by Lorelai and Rory Gilmore—is a reality. Perfect timing since the show is back November 25 on Netflix.
“Cooking for Jeffrey” by Ina Garten (October 25)
Yay, she’s back! But this time, the dishes Ina is whipping up (like Maple Roasted Carrot Salad and Fig and Goat Cheese Bruschetta) are all geared toward the people she loves the most…namely, her main squeeze Jeffrey.
