Spring Cookbooks Have Sprung
With the arrival of spring comes a whole new collection of cookbooks. And while fall tends to be home to a heftier selection, we can’t wait until then — nor should we, because this season’s crop is a good one! Lucky for us, wholesome, hearty food seems to be heavily represented among the latest releases. Here are a few favorites that are catching our eye and making us thoroughly excited for our next cooking session.

Sweeter off the Vine: Over the holidays we shared an enticing (and so pretty) gingerbread cookie recipe from EyeSwoon friend and baking pro Yossy Arefi of blog Apartment 2b Baking Co. Well, her cookbook devoted to “Desserts for Every Season” is finally here! We can’t wait to crack open the fresh-fruit-filled pages.
The Indian Family Kitchen: You may have come across Indian sauce brand Patak’s Original at your local grocery store at some point. The cookbook’s author, Anjali Pathak, is the granddaughter of the label’s founders. In her new tome, she offers fuss-free, modern takes on Indian cuisine.
Bowl: Ramen, pho, bibimbap, dumplings…it’s a yummy world of one-bowl meals out there. Bowl author Lukas Volger, who’s also penned Veggie Burgers Every Which Way and Vegetarian Entrees That Won’t Leave You Hungry, has ambitiously created vegetarian versions of all of these classics and more.
Savor: This book looks kind of like a Colorado cooking fairytale. Author and home cook Ilona Oppenheim offers simple, wholesome recipes using ingredients from her surroundings — as well as a peek into her dreamy life in Aspen, where she and her family spend part of the year.
