The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman
I am smitten with the Smitten Kitchen Cookbook. The cover caught my eye, the recipes inside delight! Author and self described “homecook” Deb Perelman begins her cookbook with a snapshot of her tiny kitchen in New York City, complete with lack of counter space and creative storage. One feels that if she can create these wonderful recipes from her tiny kitchen, then surely so can we!
The Smitten Kitchen covers it all, breakfast, salads, sandwiches and tarts, main dish meals both vegetarian and nonvegetarian. Oh and then onto the sweets, party snacks and fun drinks. Some fun recipes that caught my eye: Leek Fritters with garlic and lemon, Pancetta, white bean and swiss chard pot pies. Ms. Perelman’s spin on pumpkin pie is Marbled Pumpkin Gingersnap Tart, the photo of the final product beckons you to try it. Check out this book and see if you are as inspired to try some of these recipes. If you really like her style, follow her blog and gather even more cooking ideas: smittenkitchen.com
