This week: 2021 cookbooks, recipes, giveaways, previews and more

2021 is looking like another stellar year for cookbook lovers. This year we have books coming from Julia Turshen, Dorie Greenspan, Eric Ripert, Rose Levy Beranbaum, Zoë François, Pepper Teigen (Chrissy’s mom), Carla Lalli Music, Joshua McFadden, Giada De Laurentis, Sybil Kapoor, Rosie Birkett, Mary Berg, Emma Galloway, Ross Joseph Dobson, Tom Parker Bowles, Michael Smith, Chetna Makan, Bobby Flay, Heidi Swanson, Anna Jones, Abigail Johnson Dodge, Pippa and Michael James and many more! My 2021 Preview post shares the releases by month!

There are titles in the works for Ruby Tandoh (title: Cook As You Are), Cathy Barrow (a bagel book), Amy Thielen (a book focusing on menus and entertaining) and others. As soon as we have all the details, I will add those to the preview post which I update almost every week.

2021 is the year of plant-based cookbooks, international cuisines and baking – bread and desserts! The caliber of last year’s baking books will be hard to beat but with titles coming from Dorie, Zoë, Rose and Michael and Pippa James – it will be a tight race.

Which books are you most excited about? Just looking at 2021’s preview gives me cookbook anxiety. What is that? It is equal parts excitement, dread and jittery nerves. I want them all but I don’t know where I am going to put them and I worry that my husband’s head will explode as they begin to arrive. As Scarlett O’Hara famously said in Gone with the Wind, “I won’t think about that today – I’ll think about that tomorrow.”

    I’m sure that I will probably get the new ones by Julia Turshen and Heidi Swanson. But I’m also sure that won’t be all that I get (gulp).

    Having already ruined my resolution re: no new books til the fall (I have now pre-ordered Simply Julia), at least Mary Berg’s new book doesn’t come out until Sept 🙂

    Heidi Swanson, Milk Street Mediterranean, My Darling Lemon Thyme Everyday and Sumac. I need to explore some other titles that seem interesting . Dorie’s maybe though I don’t bake much anymore. But it’s Dorie!

Seen anything interesting? Let us know & we'll share it!
