Weekend Cooking, hosted by Beth Fish Reads, is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, fabulous quotations, photographs.
Here are five new soon-to-be-released cookbooks that I have on my wish list.
"With this follow-up to her successful Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen, she serves up more homey, Southern-inflected fare from her country music kitchen. The meat of the book is rib-sticking classics for both special occasions and weeknights." (Publishers Weekly)
"From bacon to barbecue, from pork loin to pork belly, James Villas presents the pride of the South in all its glory. 300 mouth-watering recipes range from the basics like sausages, ribs, and ham to creative ideas like hashes, burgers, gumbos, and casseroles." (Amazon)
"Chefs Bromberg, founders and owners of numerous Blue Ribbon restaurants, share an eclectic and appealing array of recipes, modified for the home cook. Lavish photographs complete this worthwhile, appetizing collection that will delight cooks, not to mention the people they feed." (Publishers Weekly)
"One of the most popular contestants ever on the hit television show Top Chef, Spike Mendelsohn is one of the hottest celebrity chefs on the scene. Here he serves up fast, fun, and fresh recipes for classic fare like burgers, sides, shakes, and desserts, as well as menu suggestions for all types of events, from big parties to casual family dinners." (Amazon)
"The newest cookbook from De Laurentiis straddles two continents with wonderful recipes from Italy and California. Chock-full of mouthwatering dishes for easy entertaining, this appealing collection is supplemented with informative, short essays on ingredients." (Publishers Weekly)
