Summer 2019 Cookbook Previews

For those of us who feel as if we just decked our halls with boughs of holly, it’s frightening to realize how quickly six months have passed. June and July are slower months in the publishing world but we still have a few great books to look forward to before August begins the madness that is Cookbooktober. For a peek at what the rest of the year has to offer see our 2019 preview post.


  • Jude’s: A Celebration of Ice Cream in 100 Recipes by Chow Mezger and Alex Mezger shares recipes for classic and more unusual ice-cream flavors as well as sorbets and vegan options. This photo-filled cookbook then shares ice-cream desserts and celebration recipes, decadent desserts, sundaes, shakes and cocktails give inspiration for allhours entertaining. Toppings are showcased, with sauces, chunky honeycomb, homemade waffle cones, marshmallows and salted pecan brittle to adorn your creations. 
  • The Chilango Burrito Bible by Eric Partaker (May UK release; July US) shares an explosion of colorful dishes served at the London eatery. The restaurant is not a stickler for tradition. They are always experimenting with new flavors and combinations. I want to make every recipe in this book from the Chilango fried chicken to the S’murros with chocolate chili sauce. I have a feeling I’ll be doing a load of rolling in the months to come. Absolutely ga-ga over this book!
  • Dappled: Baking Recipes for Fruit Lovers by Nicole Rucker is a stunner of dessert recipes that bakers will flip over. Recipes include Tomato pudding, Sour lemon cakes (making for a special friend this week) to Honey glazed strawberry pie. Nicole is the chef and owner of Los Angeles’ Fiona restaurant and has an impressive resume. I am impressed and gobsmacked by this gorgeous book. 

I hope to get to the library to find out more about these titles before our monthly cookbook reviews:
