Book Club: April Reading List

Every month we’ll be sharing a few books that we’ve loved and would recommend. They might sometimes be old books or sometimes books that are currently pulling a bandwagon, but they’ll always have our stamp of approval! We’d love for you to read them with us, to share your thoughts or to recommend other books that you’ve enjoyed that you think we should share with our readers. All genres welcome, it’s always good to have some variety!

Where Cooking Begins

By Carla Lalli Music

A modern approach to cooking at home, with more than 70 innately flexible recipes. The indispensable recipes and streamlined cooking techniques in Where Cooking Begins are an open invitation to dive into Carla Lalli Music's laid-back cooking style. The food director at Bon Appetit, her intuitive recipes are inspired by the meals she makes at home for her family and friends and the joy she takes in feeding them. Here, too, is her guide to the six essential cooking methods that will show you how to make everything without over-complicating anything--and every recipe includes suggestions for swaps and substitutions, so you'll never feel stuck or stymied. Where Cooking Begins is also the first recent cookbook to connect the way we shop to the way we cook. Music's modern approach--pick up your fresh ingredients a few times a week, and fill your pantry with staples bought online--will make you want to click on a burner and slide out a cutting board the minute you get home. The no-fail techniques, textured recipes, and strategies in Where Cooking Begins will make you a great cook.

The Kinfolk Table book cover

The Kinfolk Table

By Nathan Williams

Kinfolk - launched to great acclaim and instant buzz in 2010 - is an independently owned quarterly magazine about understated, unfussy entertaining. Both the content and the aesthetic reflect a desire to go back to simpler times; to take a hiatus from the madness of modern life; to build a community around a shared sensibility, and to foster the endless and energising magic that results from sharing a meal with good friends. Now there's a cookbook from the creators of the magazine, with profiles of 40 tastemakers who love to entertain, and who have each provided one to three of the recipes they most love to share with others, whether they be simple breakfasts for two, one-pot dinners for six, or a perfectly composed sandwich for a solo picnic.

Dining In by Alison Roman

Dining In

By Alison Roman

The recipes in Dining In have one thing in common: they make even the most oven-phobic or restaurant-crazed person want to stay home and cook. Vegetable-forward but with an affinity for a mean steak and a deep regard for fresh fish, these recipes are all about building flavour and saving time. They prove that casual doesn't have to mean boring, simple doesn't have to be uninspired, and that more steps or ingredients don't always translate to a better plate of food. With Alison Roman, dining in brings you just as much joy as eating out.

All About Cake

By Christina Tosi

Welcome to the sugar-fueled, manically creative cake universe of Christina Tosi. It's a universe of ooey-gooey banana-chocolate-peanut butter cakes you make in a crockpot, of layer cakes that taste like Key lime pie, and the most baller birthday cake ever. From her home kitchen to the creations of her beloved Milk Bar, All About Cake covers everything: two-minute microwave mug cakes, buttery Bundts and pounds, her famous cake truffles and, of course, her signature naked layer cakes filled with pops of flavor and textures. But more than just a collection of Christina's greatest-hits recipes (c'mon, like that's not enough?), this book will be your guide for how to dream up and make cakes of any flavor you can think of, whether you're a kitchen rookie or a full-fledged baking hardbody.
