Foodies often find themselves on the lookout for fantastic new recipes to try in the kitchen. Most of the time, they land up with cookbooks but what should be in a cookbook to be truly attractive is something that matters not just to professional chefs but also enthusiastic home cooks.
If you are a foodie, you need more than cookbooks with recipes. You need something more exciting than just the average recipe book. But, then, you have entered the right place. Here are seven books that will get anyone excited about being in the kitchen again:
Hoppers: The Cookbook: Recipes, Memories and Inspiration from Sri Lankan Homes, Streets and Beyond
I was excited to see this book! I love Sri Lankan food, with its variety and rich flavors. I'm grateful to the author for sharing her family's recipes and explaining their importance to Sri Lankan culture. The book is beautifully photographed and gives a great overview of the recipes and stories about the Hoppers restaurants she runs in London.
This is the official cookbook of Hoppers, a Sri Lankan restaurant chain founded in 1996 by Karan Gokhale. This book is filled with recipes that are authentic, easy to make, and taste great. I love reading the stories behind each recipe and following along on the journey of how Hoppers came to be.
Together: Our Community Cookbook
The Hubb Community Kitchen was founded by women who came together to cook fresh food for their families and neighbors after a catastrophic fire devastated their community.
The Hubb Community Kitchen is an example of the power of community, and Together is a beautiful storybook showcasing this incredible initiative. A must-have for your kitchen bookshelf!
Tokyo Up Late: Iconic Recipes from the City that Never Sleeps
Tokyo is a city that never sleeps, and this book will be your food guide through the night. It's focused on small places and hole-in-the-wall joints: the places that are so good you'll want to return for more. Tokyo Up Late will take you on a culinary tour of the city, where late-night culture plays an integral part.
Tokyo Up Late is an excellent resource for people who love cooking and want to learn more about Japanese cuisine.
First Generation: Recipes from My Taiwanese-American Home
I was excited about this book because I had enjoyed the recipes for years. First Generation: Recipes from My Taiwanese-American Home is an incredible book. It's a beautiful book, and the photography is outstanding. It's going to be in heavy rotation for me in 2023.
