Cookbook finds for November 2018
Are you a cookbook addict? I am! I used to have a very large bookcase that was so full there were books stacked on top of it and on the leftover space on the shelves in front of the books. I was out of control. Luckily Amazon’s Kindle and digital books came along. At first it was just good for replacing my novel library but now with color tablets and Kindles you can read your favorite cookbooks with full effect. I have only purchased digital cookbooks for years now and I can’t pass up on a great deal.
These books are all $3.99 or less with most of them just $1.99.
Danielle Walker’s Against All Grain Celebrations
By Danielle Walker
Having a restrictive diet doesn’t mean that meals have to be uninspiring. In this cookbook, best selling author Danielle Walker makes special occasion food that is grain-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free so that holidays can still be enjoyed with familiar flavors and slightly altered ingredient lists. For each holiday or occasion, Walker creates a custom menu for you to choose from. A part of her Thanksgiving spread includes roasted garlic mashed cauliflower, smoky candied bacon sweet potatoes, apple sausage stuffing made with gluten-free bread, a succulent roasted turkey, and an apple pie without grains and refined sugars.
By Ali Maffucci
Ali Maffucci, the woman behind the spiralizing movement, has written her second in-depth cookbook on how to creatively use more than 20 vegetables and fruits. In Inspiralize Everything, Maffucci brilliantly replaces rice, noodles, and spaghetti as we know it into nutritious spiralized vegetables. The options are endless: think chicken tagine with apricot golden beet rice, mussels over rutabaga pasta, spicy kohlrabi tortilla soup with shrimp, and parsnip-chive waffles with gluten-free fried chicken.
By Giada De Laurentiis
For Giada De Laurentiis, and many other Italians, pasta is an essential element of the dinner table. As an ode to this integral dish, De Laurentiis has supplied over 100 creative recipes for everything from cavatelli to farfalle. When you’re in need of a comforting bowl of pasta, look towards ricotta gnudi in parmesan broth, or if you’re looking for something quick and easy, go for cheesy baked tortellini. Each recipe is unique and employs De Laurentiis’ signature techniques that remain simple and straightforward.
By Karen Mordechai
Author Karen Mordechai understands the magic of communal dining. She believes that bringing people together over food is a simple pleasure which shouldn’t just be reserved for formal entertaining. The food she cooks is unfussy and approachable, as reflected through the various menus she’s included in her book, such as winter brunch that entails homemade everything bagels with tea and ginger-cured sea bass, or an autumn dinner made up of corned beef with root vegetables, braised purple cabbage, and apple and olive oil cake.
