Simply Julia – Cookbook Giveaway

Happy Publication Day to Julia Turshen! Enter our US/worldwide giveaway to win one of two copies of Simply Julia: 110 Easy Recipes for Healthy Comfort Food by Julia Turshen (two copies US from the publisher and EYB will provide one copy worldwide). Be sure to check out our Calendar – Julia has a full schedule of virtual events planned.

Julia Turshen is our generation’s culinary icon and her latest book showcases her laid-back style and modern approach to cooking. The book begins with simple, concise lists giving a peek into Julia’s kitchen staples. A few of the things you’ll learn are the five things that are always in her refrigerator, five tools you must have, and five spices that are always in her spice drawer. The book’s chapters are similarly organized including 11 weeknight go-tos and 11 vegan one-pot meals for everyone. Recipes are healthy and delicious, interesting and approachable and will be loved by all. Enjoy Sesame rice bowls with tofu, Quickles and peanut sauce, Swedish turkey meatballs and Shredded pork in the spirit of Cochinita Pibil.

We were excited to announce last week that Simply Julia was EYB’s 10,000th cookbook indexed!
