We are pleased to share a promotion for our next EYBD Book, Carbs by Laura Goodman.

Who is Laura Goodman? From her award winning blog She is Butters, she tells us:  “I’m Laura Goodman and I like making pound cakes and silk pies and trifles layered with Swiss Roll. Puddings made of cream cheese and vanilla and custard. Big old bangerz that make everyone feel a bit drunk. “Sorry, it sounded like you said you made the frosting out of Crunchies and mascarpone?”… Food that makes you feel alive.”

Even though the She is Butters‘ blog hasn’t been updated since December of 2016, Laura continues to write about food and travel for the Sunday Times, Lucky Peach, Foodism, The Pool, Eater, and Food52. Carbs is her debut cookbook. 

Carbs are what makes life worth living. Pasta and bread are a match made in culinary heaven. With a healthy sprinkling of humor, Laura delivers 85 recipes from rice bowls, pizzas, muffins and more. Retro-spired photographs accompany many of the recipes add a touch of whimsy. Measurements for ingredients are given in both weight and volume. 

Dishes that I have marked to make (I just received the book) include: Bread gratin, Roast potatoes with crunchy rice and Marmalade bread pudding. Dr. Atkins is rolling over in his grave (take note, he’s dead and we’re eating all the pasta!) Of course, I make that statement in jest. 

This isn’t a cookbook filled with butter laden, guilty pleasures. Laura shares recipes for making homemade pasta and pizza doughs, risottos and vegetables play heavily in many of the recipes. This is a cookbook that embraces the comfort found in carbohydrates and transforms them into go-to dishes that will please everyone gathered around your table.
