Cookbook Critic Paula Forbes’ picks for the best cookbooks of spring 2016.
Cook your way around the world, learn a thing or two from a celebrity kitchen, and finally master the art of bread with this spring’s new crop of cookbooks.
Ăn: To Eat chronicles the store of Helene An, who grew up a “pampered princess” of French colonial Vietnam before her family became refugees in California. There, they opened restaurants that merge Vietnamese, French, and Californian culinary traditions.
The book includes recipes for the An family’s traditional recipes, as well as many beloved “secret” dishes from their restaurants including, according to press materials, “Mama’s Beef Pho, Drunken Crab, and Oven-Roasted Lemongrass Chicken.” If you’re looking for a good cookbook to read cover-to-cover, not just cook from, this is a good call.
