This week: Dorie Greenspan and Rick Stein book tour dates, the ever-moving publication date challenge, recipes, EYBD Preview and cookbook giveaways

Earlier this week, I began working on September’s new cookbook review. And surprise, once again, many titles have been moved from September to either October or November. Frankly, those months are already bursting at the seams with releases. This all makes me a little nervous at the enormity of those month’s cookbook reviews!

I am keeping our 2021 preview post updated with these changes – and our EYB Library records – but sometimes the publication dates are changing right before my eyes! While drafting this roundup and adding a note to the Member Photo of the Week with regard to Milk Street Vegetables‘ impending release, I learned that this particular title had moved to a November pub date. This led me further down the path of checking titles again (and I just had earlier this week). A dozen more books’ publication dates had moved – some by a few weeks, some by a month

Dorie Greenspan’s virtual/online book tour has just been added to our calendar and I provided a details link where available. Our whole world has gone virtual which is good in that more people can “attend” events and sad because we miss the sharing of space (and nothing is better than a Dorie hug). Two booksellers are offering a special “signed and personalized” preorder option: R J Julia Independent Booksellers and Book Hampton.

Other calendar highlights: Please be sure to check our Calendar for author, bookstore and class dates recently added including new events for Book Larder, Kitchen Arts & Letters, Omnivore Books, and Milk Street Kitchen. OTK’s (Ottolenghi’s Test Kitchen) second video was published earlier this week and features Confit Tandoori Chickpeas. Rick Stein’s author tour begins on the 21st in the UK for his new title Rick Stein: At Home published Sep 16, 2021 (indexing now). Waterstones offers signed copies of new releases including Rick’s book.

I apologize for the short and sweet roundup but I have dates to track!

    Spent a few hours yesterday trying to source a copy of Rick Stein’s new book in London. Not a single copy anywhere! What surprised me most was how ambivalent the books shops were about stocking it. All would order it if I wanted to wait a week or so. Interestingly a ‘certain’ large online retailer could have the book delivered to me free next day and at half the price to boot. Bookshops need to raise there game!
