World of Books: May Update

I have returned from my mid-year retreat. While sad to be no longer on holidays, I am nonetheless delighted to dust off my apron and get back to reviewing cookbooks.

Reviews for these titles are coming over the next few weeks:

  • Power Vegetables! Lucky Peach / Peter Meehan
  • Everyday Cook — Alton Brown
  • Molly on the Range — Molly Yeh (which is delightfully pronounced ‘Yay’)

Beyond those planned reviews, I am at somewhat of a loose end. The cookbook releases of 2017 had not grabbed my attention at all.

Do you have a title you would like to see reviewed? Please let me know.

See you later this week!


Hello, 2017!

Happy New Year!

After a spectacular time in Japan and a few (more) solid weeks of Christmas eating, I’m happy to be back on the Cook These Books beat.

This first review of 2017 will come out on Sunday. Until then, here’s a clue: it’s a book by Australia’s most famous pony tail.

This year I will experiment with a few different review formats and approaches until I find one that strikes the right balance on all axes. Quality rather than quantity.

Thanks for all your support so far!
