Sister Pie by Lisa Ludwinski

"Sister Pie aims to celebrate the seasons through pie
to provide consistently delicious, thoughtful,
and inventive food; to foster a welcoming environment
for employees and customers through transparency,
community engagement, and education."


The above quotation is a part of Sister Pie's mission statement and the reminder of this statement is set out in a flyer that the bakery's employees see every day. The bones of this policy should be a part of how we all live our lives with kindness. 

Sister Pie: The Recipes and Stories of a Big-Hearted Bakery in Detroit by Lisa Ludwinski is special not only for the stunning photography and tempting recipes but for the spirit behind this bakery. The shop's focus is on sustainability, paying their employees above-average wages, promotion from within and training plans. They recycle, set monthly water-usage goals, and buy compostable paper goods from a local supplier. There are many other ways that this business is making a difference including their "Pie-it-Forward" program which allows customers to pre-purchase pie slices for anyone to use for any reason. They don't talk the talk, they walk the walk. Lisa is touring in support of this title and her schedule can be found on our calendar

As any good pie primer begins - it all starts with the dough which includes a variety of special crusts such as Cornmeal rose galette dough, Aged gouda pie dough and a Toasted pecan pie dough. A collection of inspirational sweet and savory pie recipes are shared before the "everything else" chapter begins. Here, recipes such as Salted rosemary shortbread, Rhubarb blondies, and Blackberry peach coffee cake, for Jane (not our Jane but former employee) are set out. 

To state that I am in love with this book is an understatement. The book itself and spirit of the author are magical and will provide many delicious bakes as well as feel good moments for years to come.

We are pleased to share a promotion for Extra Helping: Recipes for Building Community One Dish at a Time by Janet Elsbach, our latest EYBD Book on its publication day. Janet's events are shared on our calendar.

One of the essential ways to show up for people is to feed them. When our son was in and out of the hospital for almost a three month period last year, it would have meant everything to me if someone would have brought over a meal. When your mind and body is exhausted, that basic act - even if it is a take-out pizza - is life giving.

This year when we moved our friend prepared dinner for us which we shared at 9 pm with the moving employees on a make-shift picnic table set up in the garage - it was wonderful. The movers stated no one had ever did that for them - sat and shared a meal after they had been working all day. (Our friend also had bought breakfast sandwiches for us all including the movers and we bought pizza for the guys for lunch. She saved that day and we will never forget that.)

Extra Helping is for anyone who wants to nurture others. With recipes tailored to meet many of the dietary modifications that illness and recovery (not to mention modern life) often entail, as well as suggestions that range from mailing a care package to bringing over a full, hot meal, this title will guide us in the best ways to offer our support.  

In eight chapters, Extra Helping walks the helpful friend through cooking for people who are dealing with illness, recovery, and loss - or celebrating babies, birthdays, and new homes. Personal stories from the front lines of care, shortcuts for the time-strapped, and sidebars full of tips and embellishments round out a collection of over 60 recipes (ingredients given in both volume and weight measurements), aid readers in developing a style of caregiving all their own. The true beauty of this special book is its cause - a portion of the sales will go toward Feeding America.

Uncomplicated by Claire Tansey

Even this cookbook lover admits that there are times when I don't want to think about dinner. Any number of things can throw my carefully balanced juggling act off course. Claire Tansey is an accomplished chef, but also a busy working mom, so she knows the stress that takes over when deadlines are looming but we need to put dinner on the table. In her debut cookbook, Uncomplicated: Taking the Stress Out of Home Cooking, Claire has streamlined classic dishes so that cooking doesn't take more time than it needs to. 

The author knows how to filet a fish or slow roast a duck, but admits that sometimes she is just hungry and wants to make a simple meal to sit down and enjoy with her family. The recipes in Uncomplicated are those that she prepares on the regular. For instance, the Gingery beef and broccoli with cashews that can be made ahead and served up before takeout can be called in. There are over 125 recipes from breakfast to dessert, including dishes for entertaining and the holidays.

Gift Guide for Cookbook Lovers, Cooks and Bakers 2018

The season of giving is upon us. All year, I've been making notes for this gift guide to share with you books and products that I have bought, reviewed and love. My various gift guides from years' past can be found at the links below.

Any cookbooks on my Fall Cookbooks preview post, I whole-heartedly recommend especially Israeli SoulEveryday Dorie, and Estela. These titles are must-have for cooks and bakers (I will not repeat all the titles here). Books featured in our EYBD Program are great ideas for cookbook lovers because they also share the added benefit of digital access to the titles through EYB for your gift recipient. The EYBD book page shares links to previews, promotions (including giveaways with products I love), events and more.

Gifts for the Baker

Rose Levy Beranbaum has designed a wonderful collection of baking products that work! I covered a few of these products in our promotion for her latest book. Since that post, I have used two of these items religiously in my kitchen:  Rose's Magic Non-Stick Rolling Pin and Rose's Magic Dough Pastry Mat. This rolling pin really does the job without having to add flour and is super easy to clean up. The same can be said for the mat. If you are a baker or you know a baker - one of these items with Rose's book is a great gift.  

The KitchenAid Scale + Sifter attachment (UK link); is another genius product from KitchenAid. I treated myself to this attachment and have been having a great time using it. Other KitchenAid products, I love include, of course, the stand mixer itself, the vegetable sheeter, the ice cream maker, pasta attachments, spiralizer (curly fries!), and the mixer attachment pack

Every baker needs a good scale, the OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Food Scale with Pull-Out Display (UK linkCA link) is the stand alone type I recommend. One of the things that has helped me the most in the kitchen since I've been baking several times a week is being organized. I cannot say enough about OXO's Good Grips 10-Piece Airtight Food Storage POP Container (UK link; CA link). I have a set of these as well as four of the 4 quart size (UK link; CA link) for flours, sugars and more.

Another OXO product I have been enjoying is the OXO jelly roll pan (UK link; CA link) that we are featuring in our promotion for Pie Squared, Cathy Barrow's latest (and a part of our EYBD program). Bake up a recipe from this fantastic book in an OXO pan, wrap up the book, and you have the perfect hostess gift this season. 

Give someone you love a subscription to Bake from Scratch - my favorite baking magazine. This gift will provide a year's worth of inspiration as do any of their books on baking, cakes or breads

Mauviel is one of my absolute favorite things in the world. Their copper mixing bowl and stand or their new individual souffles set my heart aflutter. Every girl wants something shiny under the tree, and this girl wants Mauviel. For your holiday cooking and roasting, the Mauviel roaster is perfect. Look for a promotion soon for one of these gorgeous copper roasters.

Other ideas for the baker: 

Cookbooks for the Baker from 2018:


For the cook who has almost everything:



The Instant Pot multicooker is sweeping the world but did you know they make a Sous Vide, an incredibly priced sous vide that works just as well as models twice the price. I've used this product several times with great results. (UK link; CA link)

The latest from Instant Pot is their 8 Qt Aura Pro Multi-Use Programmable Multicooker with Sous Vide. I hope to be able to bring you a promotion soon on one of Instant Pot's sous vide products and will be providing a full review of the Aura Pro. (CA link)

Cookbooks for the Sous Vide from 2018:

Of course, an Instant Pot® (7-in-1) multi-cooker (UK link; CA link) is the tool every busy cook needs. Their newest products include the 6 quart 10-in-1 (with more functions) and the 8 quart 7-in-1 which is perfect for bigger jobs. For dorm rooms and smaller needs, the 3 quart, 7-in-1 mini duo is adorable and a perfect fit. My review on the mini pot can be found here. When deals for these products are available, we will be sure to let our members know and, of course, our Black Friday post will be available soon. Keep checking our Facebook page for updates. Next week, we'll have a promotion available for two of Ivy Manning's books and one of Instant Pot's multicookers! 

In January, I did a summary of our favorite Instant Pot books. This year there has been an influx of new exciting titles which include: 

Le Creuset is and will always be my first love. Every serious cook needs a piece of Le Creuset. This pot will last a lifetime, will be a workhorse in your kitchen and look great on top of it all. Check out our current promotion to find more information about Le Creuset and enter our giveaway to win a gorgeous Indigo Dutch Oven with Kate McDermott's Home Cooking.  Right now I'm obsessing over the Tartan design available at Williams Sonoma and hoping Santa has me on his nice list (I need to figure out how to hack that list).

Staub cast iron cookware is another wonderful option for gift giving. Staub comes in a variety of sizes and colors and they have the most adorable knobs that are as addictive as the cookware.

The fishsnailroostercowrabbit and pig knobs are whimiscal and would be a welcomed gift for those who already have Le Creuset or Staub (they are interchangeable) or as a stocking stuffer if Santa already has a dutch oven under the tree. Check out our current promotion for The Staub Cookbook and skillet and enter our giveaway. I am now infatuated with Staub's special holiday pot pictured to the left - it screams holidays. The Staub wood trivet is another great stocking stuffer and keeps your hot pot perfectly planted with no slipping.

My new favorite cutlery is Shun. The Shun premier chef's knife is the knife. I love the feel, weight and precision of Shun cutlery. We will be having a promotion very soon for this stunning knife. 

Emile Henry stoneware looks great on your table and produces perfect results for all your baking needs. Look for a promotion soon for a covered loaf pan! One of my favorite pieces is their potato pot. This stoneware delivers potatoes that are crispy all over - shake the pot instead of flippin (this piece can also be used for bread).

Besides cookware or a good knife, the item in my kitchen that gets the most use is my Zojirushi BB-PDC20BA Home Bakery Virtuoso Plus Breadmaker. I confess I only use the dough cycle on this machine but it is a lifesaver. I make a batch of bagels every week and many yeasted dough baked goods - and the dough cycle makes this portion of baking easy work. We will have a promotion for this beauty coupled with Holiday and Celebration Bread in Five Minutes a Day: Sweet and Decadent Baking for Every Occasion

Cookbooks from 2018

Any cookbooks on my Fall Cookbooks preview post, I whole-heartedly recommend especially Israeli SoulEveryday Dorie, and Estela.

In addition, the following titles that would make any cookbook lover happy:

First Annual EYB Holiday Cookie Contest

I love collecting cookie recipes - cherished family recipes and  newspaper contest compilations are my favorites. I'm always on the lookout for something new and exciting to try so every holiday season, I snatch up all the holiday baking magazines and make plans to make hundreds of cookies. 

 

This year, I thought it would be fun to share our original family recipes with each other. Here's how we will do it: 

  • From now until December 1st share an original recipe for a holiday cookie or bar.
  • Email your recipes to jenny@eatyourbooks.com. In the subject line, write Cookie Contest. 
  • Be sure to include the cookie/bar name, oven temperature, baking time, ingredients and instructions.
  • If you have a photo, share that as well. 
  • Optional: If you would like to share a line or two about the recipe, please do so.

I will compile the recipes into one post so that all our members can try a few new recipes this year. I'll have the compilation post up and ready by December 5th - in plenty of time for baking a new treat or two. (I may even have a prize to share for the most unique recipes.)

Please remember they must be adapted or original recipes, we cannot share recipes from published sources.

Eataly: All About Pasta

Eataly: All About Pasta: A Complete Guide with Recipes is an ideal pasta primer, whether you would like to master mixing and forming the dough from scratch or you just want to expand your repertoire of easy weeknight sauces for store-bought pasta - this book has it all.

Organized by "families" of pasta, the book explains every major pasta shape from its history, what sauce pairs best, and the inside scoop on signs of quality in the market. In one quick-reference volume the cook has everything necessary to prepare delicious pasta dishes whether for an elegant dinner party, a make-ahead buffet, or a quick family meal.

In Eataly: All About Pasta you will learn to make a variety of pastas and sauces, including raviolis and staples such as homemade ricotta. Tips on cooking pasta and preparing broths are shared. There is no shortage of photographs here from finished dishes to step-by-step process photos. This is a wonderful book for those who want to learn how to make pasta whether a novice or an experienced dough maker. I know this title will find a spot on my kitchen bookcase where all my go-to-reference and favorite books are at my fingertips.

Cooking in Iran: Regional Recipes and Kitchen Secrets
by Najmieh Batmanglij is absolute brilliance packed into 700 pages that share 400 stunning photographs and 250 recipes. Najmieh's books should be on everyone's radar and especially her latest as she brings to the reader her ten thousand mile, five year journey through Iran. During that trip, she cooked with locals, visited workshops, and developed recipes. The result is an astounding authoritative exploration of a cuisine whose cultural roots are among the deepest of any in the world. This is a book to lose yourself in while you travel those miles with this gifted storyteller. After spending time wrapped up in the author's love of Iran, soaking in the history and learning about the people, only then take to the kitchen to recreate these dishes. Sure to be one of my top 2018 titles.

Holiday and Celebration Bread in Five Minutes a Day: Sweet and Decadent Baking for Every Occasion by Jeff Hertzberg M.D. and Zoë François is divine and a gift that is perfect for any baker. Filled with baking tips, recipe variations, step-by-step photography to guide the reader through braiding and techniques, it is a dream of a book. I love that there are so many bakes from around the world including a Greek cross-topped bread, Swedish tea rings and Romanian Easter braid with ricotta custard. We will be bringing you a promotion on this title coupled with a Zojirushi Home Bakery Virtuoso Plus Breadmaker for all your dough mixing needs. 

Fantastical Cakes: Incredible Cakes for the Baker in Anyone by Gesine Bullock-Prado shares the baking star's step-by-step instructions for baking, piping, and making decorations. Gesine makes each task more manageable, whether it's baking layers ahead of time and freezing, or taking the time to crank out a slew of gorgeous frosting flowers that hold beautifully in the freezer until you need them. No step is skipped or left unexplained. Everyone of Gesine's books are must haves.

Cibi: Simple Japanese-Inspired Meals to Share With Family and Friends by Meg Tanaka and Zenta Tanaka is a book on home-style Japanese cooking inspired by the eponymous Melbourne café and design space created by the authors.

This book is being released in the UK this month and will be published in the US in May, 2019. The US release will be a part of our EYBD program. I had to order this book from the UK as I am a fan of the author and I just received it today. Packed with rich photography and sumptuous food, this biography of a region, its people and its recipes is truly impressive. I'm looking forward to spending more time with this title.

We are pleased to share a promotion for our next EYBD Book, Bourke Street Bakery: All Things Sweet: Unbeatable Recipes from the Iconic Bakery by Paul Allam and David McGuinness, two chefs turned bakers, who share a love of good food and an appreciation of all things handmade. They also dreamt of opening a little cafe bakery where everything would be made by hand with dedication and love. In the winter of 2004, they realized that dream when they opened their bakery in Sydney and the rest, as they say, is history. I love history that involves cakes, tarts and good work (read about The Bread & Butter Project).

 

The Bourke Street Bakery titles are nothing short of perfection.  How to Bake Perfect Bread, Bourke Street Bakery: The Ultimate Baking Companion and The Bread and Butter Project (Bourke Street Bakery), I've had in my collection since they were published. Right now there are about twenty more bins in the garage to be unpacked from our move and I cannot wait to find these two titles and reacquaint myself with their brilliance.

Bourke Street Bakery: All Things Sweet: Unbeatable Recipes from the Iconic Bakery is a comprehensive guide to baking all things sweet. Step-by-step photography accompanies the triple-tested recipes for the pastries, cakes, tarts, cookies and confectionary that made this bakery famous. This collection represents years of testing, adapting and refining of the recipes, so now readers at home can be sure that  they have everything they require to bake the perfect treat every time.

We are pleased to share a promotion for our next EYBD Book 12 Bones Smokehouse: An Updated Edition with More Barbecue Recipes from Asheville, NC by Bryan and Angela King, Shane Heavner and Mackensy Lunsford.

 

 
When 12 Bones Smokehouse opened in Asheville, North Carolina, many doubted that it would succeed. From a squat building in a flood plain, the owners were serving up creative barbecue that wasn't 100-percent true to any single region. Yet more than a decade later, 12 Bones is a local institution that rivals the Biltmore Estate in popularity. 

In this newly updated edition of 12 Bones Smokehouse, you'll find recipes that draw inspiration from all over the South (and sometimes the North), from old family favorites, to new recipes invented on a whim. You'll enjoy page after page of the classics as well as 12 Bones' most popular specials and desserts.

Yes, I realize this is a smokehouse cookbook, and the savory food will inspire you to head out in the midst of winter and start up the smoker/grill, but the desserts are equally impressive: Peanut butter-banana upside down cake (I am so making this soon), Midnight pies and the Peanut butter pretzel bars (featured in our EYBD preview) are swoon-worthy, or should that be spoon-worthy? Either way, start your dinner with any of the recipes in this book and invite me over, I'll bring dessert!
