March Cookbook Previews – Part III

Cookbook March Madness continues (which will include April, too because I am stumped as to what to call April – perhaps April’s Avalanche – see I would never make it in advertising.)  My first and second preview posts celebrating March releases shared a variety of titles from international cookbooks, healthy eating and books from the masters and member favorites.  Today’s post will finish up our highlights because the monthly round up is right around the corner.

This gorgeous book brings 30 of the world’s top food bloggers together in one place. Q & As with each blogger, photographs, recipes and a whole lot of awesome is pack into this title. One of my favorite people, Meike Peters of Eat in My Kitchen, is featured along with many other trend setters. Each profile includes a readers’ choice and a totally new recipe just for this book. For instance, Lady and Pups shares My Spicy Fried Chicken Sandwich which is on her blog and Shrimp Toast Grilled Cheese with Spicy Coconut Broth which is not. Bloggers from Brooklyn to South Africa are featured and I am crushing on this book.

Dixter was home to the revered and highly influential gardener and writer, Christopher Lloyd, and a number of this book’s recipes have been taken from the Lloyd family’s personal kitchen notebooks. Please remember Eat Your Book members receive 30% off Phaidon titles when using the link provided.

    I recently heard about Eat This Poem and I am completely fascinated by the concept! I have not bought a new cookbook in a while because as wonderful as the new ones coming out look, I know I have too many neglected ones on my shelves already (I'm working on it! With the help of EYB, of course.) The literary angle on this one though just may cause me to make an exception ๐Ÿ™‚

Seen anything interesting? Let us know & we'll share it!
