I have SO many books I want to finish by the end of the year.
I love reading and if I have an opportunity to sit down and read I’ll take it. If I’m in the car or if I’m working on art, an audiobook is on. Fiction or nonfiction, I enjoy them both.
Among the extremely long list of books I want to finish this year, is a stack of cookbooks. A ton of great looking cookbooks have entered the market this year, and I’m just a *little* behind on checking them out. I also have a plethora of classic cookbooks I need to make my way through. Unfortunately, all my books are packed away right now because of the move, so I’ll have to update the picture in a week or so.
Let’s go through my list shall we?
Maangchi’s Real Korean Cooking: Authentic Dishes for the Home Cook – I recently found out about Maangchi when I was studying up on YouTube cooking shows. Wanting to start a YouTube channel up soon, I figured it would be best to seek out some experts and see what they do. Maangchi is amazing. AMAZING. I’m slightly addicted and have been watching her video progression from the very first video to recent. She is a skilled chef with a fun personality and her Korean cooking is mouthwatering. It makes me want to try everything she prepares.
Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Gluten-Free Recipes to Help You Shine from Within – All the food I’ve seen her post on Instagram from her cookbook looks wonderful. The photography is done by another cookbook author, Hayley Mason, and is stunning. I want to eat everything.
Paleo Takeout: Restaurant Favorites Without the Junk – Russ Crandall created a book that took your favorites from restaurants and made them healthier. What I love about what I’ve seen so far is that it’s not just standard burgers, etc. Crandall throws in pho, katsudon, pad thai, curries, wings, calzones, fish tacos, gryos, and a bunch of other stuff.
The Japanese Grill: From Classic Yakitori to Steak, Seafood, and Vegetables – My grandma taught me a lot about Japanese cooking, but we never really made grilled foods. This book is all about grilling and is filled with recipes for side dishes, vegetables, and meats. It also goes over the very basics of Japanese grilling.
Mastering the Art of French Cooking (2 Volume Set) – Julia Child’s classic book is a beloved addition in so many homes around the world. Chris bought me vol 1 and 2 for Mother’s Day and I’m excited to make my way through this dense collection.
Jerusalem: A Cookbook – Recipes from Jerusalem with images and tidbits of the culture and city life. I love the bright colors of the food, the use of herbs and spices, and the purity of real ingredients in this book.
That is my list as of right now. Things can always change and usually do. I really have a cookbook problem and I don’t see it stopping anytime soon.
