New Cookbooks with Great Photos and Recipes

January 28, 2011 // Filed under Uncategorized

Finally cookbook publishers are realizing that readers want to visualize the finished product before making an attempt at a recipe, especially one with a lot of ingredients and steps.  The cookbooks shown below, new to Bernardsville Public Library, will not disappoint in that regard because they are heavily illustrated with beautiful color photographs for almost every recipe. 

Try a young Irish blogger’s first cookbook, Good Mood Food, for some delightful dishes.  Donal Skehan’s book features simple recipes with wholesome ingredients. For a great introduction to coffee – how to brew it in different manners – as well as delicious cake recipes, why not try (what else?) Coffee and Cake by Rick Rodgers?  While you have the oven on, whip up a wide range of cookies from Crazy About Cookies by Krystina Castella.  Each of the recipes will entice you with its accompanying photo.  Then it’s on to breadmaking. Peter Reinhart’s book, The Bread Baker’s Apprentice,  is a James Beard Foundation Book Award winner as well as The IACP Cookbook Awards winner.  In it you will find many recipes and detailed photographs illustrating the breadmaking techniques required to turn out wonderful breads. Lavash, muffins, ciabatta, limpa, and brioche are just some of the bread recipes included in this lovely book.
