Getting caught up on my breakdown of the 1st Round of Food52’s Piglet Tournament of Cookbooks 2018.
Day 4 of The Piglet Tournament of Cookbooks hosted by Food52 — food blog, recipe guru and cookbook creator — sparred off two homey restaurant-centric cookbooks.
The 2018 Piglet Tournament of Cookbooks from Food52 kicks off with a pairing of two heavy hitters. It’s Piglet madness, round 1.
‘Between Harlem and Heaven’ is more than the usual localized American cookbook. Instead, it dives deep into an education on the food and flavors of African-American culture, its vitality and history woven into an entire people. A pretty apt choice to cook from during Black History Month.
Tonic is a tiny book with a lot of punch. Packed with homeopathic remedies for everything from insomnia to stress reducers, from a lover’s drink to after-dinner digestives, the book proves a useful addition to the cookbook shelf. Especially this time of year.
Lina Nertby Aurell and Mia Clase call themselves “two positive hypochondriacs who try to figure out how to eat to stay healthy, with guidance from Professor Emeritus Stig Bengmark.” After writing a few years for their blog ‘Food Pharmacy’, they now offer a book/cookbook of the key information they think we should know.
The fall and winter holidays inspire so many comforting dishes to brighten our darker days, they’re well deserving of their own book.
‘Paella’ from Alberto Herráiz offers ambitious award winning paella and provides inspiration to do as Herráiz advises: experiment.
A quality dessert and sweets cookbook from one of my favorite chefs and cookery authors.
Tim Anderson’s bio reads like the answer to an obscure food trivia question.
Pop quiz: Wisconsin native. MasterChef UK champion. Japanese food expert. London chef. What do these incongruous descriptors have in common?
