New Local Cookbooks to Check Out
A good way to spend a snow day: firing up the oven and cooking your way through some of the newest cookbooks by local chefs.
- Baking with Steel: The Revolutionary New Approach to Perfect Pizza, Bread, and More by Andris Lagsdin with Jessie Oleson Moore: You don’t necessarily need Lagsdin’s product, the Baking Steel, to get a lot out of this book, but it doesn’t hurt to have one. Your home pizza-making skills will immediately skyrocket if you do. Lots of fun baking and breakfast-y projects in this book. Mass. native Lagsdin provides instructions for a number of different pizza styles, including classic South Shore bar pies.
- Homegrown: Cooking from My New England Roots by Matt Jenning: Townsman chef-owner Jenning shares a mix of recipes from Townsman and other New England classics, from clam chowder to Boston cream whoopie pies.
- Myers+Chang at Home: Recipes from the Beloved Boston Eatery by Joanne Chang and Karen Akunowicz: Fans of the South End mainstay will find lots to love in this brand new cookbook, from grilled corn with spicy Sriracha butter to dan dan noodle salad. And Chang’s older books are worth a look as well — don’t miss the hot and sour soup recipe in Flour, Too: Indispensable Recipes for the Cafe's Most Loved Sweets & Savories; it’ll get you through winter.
