Food trucks are all the rage these days and author/food truck owner Kim Ima, reinforces the belief that if you are passionate about something and can visualize it, you can make it happen and be successful.

How to Roast a Lamb by Michael Psilakis

At last, a cookbook to take me back to meals I savoured in family-owned restaurants while visiting the Greek Islands. Occasionally one finds a Greek restaurant that touches on some of the authentic flavours, ingredients and moods of Greek feasting- and yes, the ouzo helps. However, my cookbook shelf has held a hopeful space for a book that would allow me to recreate those dishes at home. It was with great satisfaction that I flipped through Michael Psilakis’ How to Roast a Lamb. This is not a cookbook filled with cliché dishes of our version of Greek cuisine, but true Greek cuisine by a chef with both skill and passion. Read the full review »


My Father's Daughter by Gwyneth PaltrowSo, it would appear that Gwyneth Paltrow can add successful cookbook author to her CV along with her many other talent. As skeptical as I was going in to the review for My Father’s Table, I was actually pleasantly surprised by the number of dishes that not only sparked my own culinary recollections, but I was pretty eager to prepare for my own family.

Tartine Bread by Chad Robertson

Tartine Bread is my ideal bread book. No more excuses, no more stalling, time to expand beyond pizza dough and brioche. Bread baking is very personal by nature. We all take to the ovens with varying degrees of enthusiasm, skill, and expectations. Not to mention time commitments. The most important element of a bread book, apart from the inclusion of recipes for breads you want to make and henceforth eat, is finding one that complements Read the full review »


Esalen Cookbook by Charlie Cascio

Only a lucky few get the opportunity to spend time recharging themselves at the world-renowned Esalen Institute, perched on the cliffs above the ocean in Big Sur, California. Esalen is a place of peace and beauty, where people can contemplate, think, and discover. And wouldn’t you know, the kitchen (along with the kitchen garden of course) is the heart of this tranquil get-away. Read the full review »


Flour by Joanne Chang

As cliché as this might sound, I really want to bake everything in Joanne Chang’s new baking book, Flour, Spectacular Recipes from Boston’s Flour Bakery + Café. Really, there’s not a recipe I don’t want to try. She makes it all look easy, delicious and impossible to resist. There’s nothing over-the-top and too showy in this collection; just good old-fashioned treats. Read the full review »
