Cheese! Acclaimed chef Michel Roux has recently published a cookbook with cheese in every recipe, and there’s some great stuff here.
If you’ve been frightened of trying classic (and complicated) German baking recipes, then Luisa Weiss might have what you need in Classic German Baking, which she has created with non-German bakers in mind.
I didn’t love the Night + Market cookbook by Kris Yenbamroong, but that doesn’t mean you won’t dig this book of Thai-fusion recipes from the restaurant by the same name.
If you’re looking for a light-hearted mystery that also has plenty of food in it, then Jamie Lee Scott’s Pasta, Pinot & Murder: A Willa Friday Food & Wine Mystery is a great way to spend an afternoon.
And finally, Carolyn Tillie has written Oyster: A Global History, a lovely book on the history of oysters that is a must-read for anyone who loves the tasty bi-valves.
