Must Have Books for Fall 2019

We are proud of our global membership here at Eat Your Books. With a world of cookbooks to cover our “lists” are heftier than others. Even though this preview post takes into consideration cookbooks from all points on the map, I did try to pare it down for brevity’s sake. That being said, please know that there are myriad titles I have listed on the 2019 Preview post that I am excited for as well and some that I’m sure will make others must have list. In the spirit of the aforementioned brevity which is basically inconceivable for a devout cookbook lover, click on each book’s title to learn more from our library’s book description section. You will note a few EYBDigital Previews are available with many others in the queue to prepare. I have also highlighted any events that are scheduled. As more details arrive, books are reviewed, previews completed, and events planned, I will update this post. August September October November December

    Definitely a few must have’s in that little section but am really surprised that my most anticipated cookbook this side of Christmas doesn’t APPEAR to be listed anywhere it’s….
    Any Chaplin – Whole Food Cooking Every Day.
    isbn 978-1579658021

    Listed to be released in the U.K on 1st Sept.

  • angrygreycat  on  July 29, 2019

    I see a few here I am definitely interested in: John Whaite's new book, the new Milk Street book and the Half Baked Harvest book – I look at her site all the time.

    Diana Henry's I would like but I have a few of hers so I would want to see it first before committing.

    I will buy Jamie Oliver's Veg for a gift for someone I know will want it. I will also check out the weeknight baking for a gift.
