I have three fun titles for one of you.
Milk Bar Life by Christina Tosi is a fun quirky book by the author of Momofuku Milk Bar. It includes recipes like kimchi quesadillas, burnt honey butter kale with sesame seeds, pumpkin gooey butter cake, salt and pepper cookies, hijacked Biscoff cookies, rosemary jelly, smoked cantaloupe jam, blueberry miso jelly, sweet and sour red onion jam, Milk Bar English muffins (to soak up the jam), chicken fat biscuits — about as wide a variety as you can get everything from blue cheese pretzels to roast chicken dinner and more.
Jerusalem by Ottolenghi – not much to say here. It’s Ottolenghi – the poster boy for cool, flavorful food. Jerusalem is a mix of both vegetarian and meat inclusive dishes.
L.A. Son by Roy Choi is part memoir, part cookbook. You have to love a book whose first sentence is “HELLO. I’M ROY. Get in. We’re going for a ride.” It’s a little Korean, a little Mexican, a lot street food and Buttermilk Pancakes thrown in for the hell of it. It’s all good.
