This week: Supporting our food community; recipes; cookbook giveaways and EYBD Previews

Rose Levy Beranbaum reached out to me this week. As you can imagine, she was beyond disappointed that her latest book The Cookie Bible has been shelved until next fall/autumn due to shipping delays. Rose had a number of events planned and has turned a few of those events into discussions of her brilliant title Rose's Baking Basics. On Nov… read more

This week: A few new baking books from NZ and the UK, author tour/class updates, recipes and more

Since August our entire team at EYB have been busier than normal. Speaking just for me, there are books to review, promotions to set up, monthly cookbook reviews to write up and more. Our staff is working hard to keep our cookbook corner of the world up-to-date for our members. Today, I want to share with you a few books… read more

This week: Cookbook news, EYB features, GBBO recaps, online classes, recipes and more

Earlier this week several social media sites were down for roughly five hours inspiring Darcie to write Things to do when Facebook and Instagram are down. This post was a good reminder of some of EYB's features both old and new. How to Make EYB work better for you is another great reference for our members. Even after working for… read more

The last two weeks: Rice, rice and more rice, EYBD Previews, cookbook giveaways and more

Hello members. We skipped the roundup last week due to the monthly newsletter's publication as we like to keep our emails to our members to a minimum. (And, if truth be told, September's new cookbook review was a bit exhausting and I needed a few days to recover!) If you missed the newsletter in your inbox, you can always find… read more

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… read more

This week: Ottolenghi YouTube series, Fortnum & Mason Food Award winners, GBBO air date confirmed, upcoming books from GBBO stars and more

Mark your calendars! Channel 4 has confirmed that The Great British Bake Off will return on 21 September. This is the second series to be filmed with strict regulations to reduce the potential spread of COVID on the set. The good news this year is that there appears to be no shortage of flour or yeast.  Netflix will stream the… read more

The last two weeks: A look inside Gastro Obscura, 2022 cookbooks, giveaways, recipes and EYBD Previews

This roundup has more links and information than usual as we skipped last week's post as we sent out the monthly newsletter. For brevity's sake, I will keep the topic short and sweet: a quick look at an amazing food title: Gastro Obscura: A Food Adventure by Cecily Wong, Dylan Thuras and Atlas Obscura. Gastro Obscura is one of those… read more

This week: A look inside Jamie Oliver’s upcoming book, the art of creating canelés, cookbook giveaways, recipes and EYBD Previews

For this week's roundup, I will feature a look at Jamie Oliver's latest book and I plan to detail more titles next week. My preview for the second half of 2021 and other sneak peeks can be found at the links shared. I also wanted to revisit canelés as we were discussing this lovely pastry in The Cookbook Junkies. COVID's… read more

This week: A look inside upcoming cookbooks; recipes, cookbook giveaways and EYBD Previews

There are a wealth of delicious titles being released this year and I covered many in my Cookbook Preview for the second half of 2021. Since that preview, I have received additional electronic copies of certain books and wanted to share some insight into those as well as to alert you to a new book coming from White Lily Flour. The… read more

Speaking of croissants, Brian is the latest culinary… read more

This week: The best of baking intentions, recently indexed books, recipes, EYBD Previews and giveaways

My head is paved with the best of baking intentions. I make plans to tackle a baking project and then the next thing you know "Bazinga!" I am binge watching The Big Bang Theory to avoid said projects. Nine months ago, I traced the circles onto parchment to bake the Honey cake (photo below) from Baking at the 20th Century… read more

This week: A sneak peek at cookbooks from Pati Jinich, Edd Kimber and Hisham Assaad, recently indexed books, recipes, giveaways and EYBD Previews

My fall/autumn cookbook preview is being drafted but I am awaiting more pdfs in order to try to give our members the most information on each title from around the world. Before the end of the month, I will have that published for you along with many EYBD Previews. This week's roundup will give you a look inside Treasures of… read more

The last two weeks: Recipes for the grill and dessert with a global flair, a new podcast, newly indexed books, cookbook giveaways, EYBD Previews and more

Our last weekly roundup featured chilly desserts and beverages. To continue on that track, earlier this week I shared promotions for Honey & Co: Chasing Smoke: Cooking Over Fire Around the Levant and New-School Sweets: Old-School Pastries with an Insanely Delicious Twist - both of which shared some gorgeous looking recipes - photo below of New-School Sweets - to try… read more

This week: How to beat the heat with cooling beverages and desserts, recipes, cookbook previews and giveaways

Summertime is here for most of us in the northern hemisphere and I am sure many of us want to avoid turning on the oven for any reason. This week's roundup will focus on chilly desserts along with cocktails/beverages because nothing tackles being parched like an icy beverage - whether a mocktail or cocktail. Frozen peanut butter pie from Cook Republic… read more

This week: How to make EYB work better for you, member indexing, recipes, cookbook EYBD previews and giveaways

This week's roundup will cover a few Eat Your Book topics. First we hope our members are enjoying the site and reaping delicious benefits from using your cookbooks more. Last year we published a post with some suggestions and recently I updated it with more links toward the bottom of the article. We have been super busy indexing books -… read more

This week: Japanese cuisine, recipes, cookbook giveaways, EYBD previews and more!

As I have mentioned before, I have been finding joy in watching YouTube videos that involve cooking. One channel that I love is Nami, a single female Japanese office worker documenting her lifestyle via vlog. A majority of her videos demonstrate what she cooks in her small Tokyo apartment. She creates multi-coursed meals that look incredible. I would kill… read more

The last two weeks: The dangers or benefits of working on the Library, cookbook giveaways and EYBD Previews, recipes and more!

Some of you may recall My Big Fat Cookbook Purge of 2021 initiative that I began when I was younger and full of hope (in March). Some recent issues have hindered my ability to lift or do manual labor which has slowed down the progress of my efforts. My goal is to still knock down some of the mountains of… read more

This week: Modernist Pizza – October 2021, upcoming Phaidon cookbooks, recipes, cookbook giveaways and EYBD Previews

Exciting cookbook news this week. Modernist Pizza will be released this October. I have been sitting on my fingers to avoid sharing the news until I received the okay. I had added the book to our Library about a week ago but knew it was coming long before. The anxiety of not publishing the announcement nearly did me in. I'm… read more

This week: Skillet bread, recipes, cookbook giveaways, previews and more

The team has been very busy at Eat Your Books: indexing titles, getting through the March - May rush of new cookbooks and providing you with daily culinary news. The place in my heart for librarian love grew three sizes in the last few weeks. There is a lot of double and triple checking numbers and dates until eventually you… read more

The last two weeks: Keeping produce fresh longer, Bryant Terry’s new publishing imprint, recipes, cookbook previews and giveaways

About a month ago, I ordered a set of Stasher silicone reusable bags (as well as a few extra mid-sized bags). I had watched a few videos where cooks were using them and I wanted to try them myself. I received them and put them into the "I'll get to" pile - that pile is ridiculously high. As you may… read more

This week: A look inside Rose Levy Beranbaum’s The Cookie Bible, updated events calendar, recipes, EYBD previews and giveaways

Hello dear members. I am up to my eyeballs in April cookbooks preparing for this month's new cookbook review due next week. Accordingly, this week's roundup will be short but very sweet. Today I'll give you a detailed look inside Rose Levy Beranbaum's The Cookie Bible slated for publication on November 9, 2021. If you are preordering from Book Depository… read more

This week: Jachnun the 12 hour delight plus recipes, EYBD Previews, cookbook giveaways and more.

Recently my daughter-in-law forwarded a video on Jachnun to me and I, of course, had to learn more about this "not quite a bread, not quite a pastry" Yemeni dish. Caveat: I am not an expert on any subject, I am taking some time to research this dish and share what I learn. How to cook jachnun and what to… read more

This week: New online baking classes, a peek inside Dorie’s upcoming cookbook, EYBD Preview, cookbook giveaways and more!

This week Williams-Sonoma announced their lineup for the next series of Baking School with Brian Hart Hoffman of Bake From Scratch. I have added these dates and particulars to our calendar. I want to take a moment to highlight cookbooks (and upcoming cookbooks) from some of the bakers joining Brian in Baking School. The Cupcake Diaries was written by the… read more

The last two weeks: Cookbook libraries, new print feature at EYB, cookbook giveaways, EYBD previews and more!

Since my last roundup, we've been busy! There have been many cookbooks indexed and a new member added to our team. But before we cover those things, I thought it would be nice to talk a bit about cookbook libraries or libraries with a heavy cookbook collection for today's topic. April 4th begins National Library Week so this is a… read more

This week: So many cookbooks, our week in review, new recipes, giveaways, EYBD Previews and more

This week I have been happily buried in reviewing new cookbooks as well as continuing to update our 2021 preview post and our Library. Did you know you could sort the library by the date the books were added? Doing so brings up recent additions by members and new 2021 titles added by myself or our team. A few recent… read more
