Encore! Swoony Spring 2017 Cookbooks

We weren’t lying when we said Spring 2017 offers an enticing new crop of cookbooks. In fact, since we couldn’t squeeze all our favorites into our first cookbook roundup of the season, we’re back with another installment! Here are tomes to show you how to properly build a bowl meal, prepare an artful salad the way a painter or musician would, and soak up cooking secrets from professional chefs who have adapted their hard-won wisdom for home cooks. These culinary resources are bursting with valuable info. So much to love, so much to learn, so much to eat.

Salad for President: A Cookbook Inspired by Artists: Much like in her popular blog, artist and photographer Julia Sherman provides an inspiring peek into everyday art as she connects with fellow creatives in their kitchens, documenting their salad concoctions and stories. The book serves up more than 75 healthy, satisfying and wholly unique recipes.

  2. Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking: Ever wish an acclaimed, professional chef would reveal the building blocks of great cooking? Well, here you have it.

Now she’s distilling her approach for us all.

  3. Good Clean Food: Super Simple Plant-Based Recipes for Every Day: The right, bright recipes make the body feel good, and that’s what Good Clean Food is all about. The debut cookbook from health coach Lily Kunin of blog Clean Food Dirty City has vibrant, whole food-filled dishes to awaken, cleanse, comfort and more, with a how-to for building bowls.
