I admit I don't spend as much time flipping through cookbooks as I used to. I find a lot of my food inspiration online but there is something special about physical books. I maybe a little biased (this is not a sponsored post but I do work in the book industry) but there is something very calming about taking a little time out of your day to sit down with a book and just emerge yourself in that world.
It also brings me an odd amount of joy just to collect cookbooks. I do try to limit myself. We have 2 ok maybe 3 shelves dedicated just to cookbooks. Whenever those shelves get full I know its time to purge to make room for my new favorite books but some of our cookbooks I could never imagine parting with. I have a feeling I am going to have to purge a few books to make room for all the great new fall cookbooks.
One of those books I could never imagine getting rid off is a gently used copy of Mollie Katzen's The Enchanted Broccoli Forest. Maybe thats why I am so excited about one new book this fall, The Moosewood Restaurant Table, by The Moosewood Collective on sale September 26th.
Moosewood restaurant is a James Beard award winning vegetarian restaurant that was opened in Ithaca, NY over 40 years ago in 1973. It is owned and operated by a collective group of individuals know as the Moosewood Collective. The new book features 250 recipes and is sure to be an instant classic.
One of my favorite vegan bloggers has a new book coming out on September 26 as well, Vegan Richa's Everyday Kitchen. I love her blog and whenever we make her recipes they always turn out perfectly.
Also coming out in September is the 10th Anniversary edition of the Veganomicon by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero which features 25 new recipes.
Another fall cookbook I am looking forward to reading is Sheet Pan Suppers Meatless by Raquel Pelzel on sale October 3rd. You may or may not know this but I love pizza. I mean I really love it. I could eat pizza 3 times a day for a week straight and not be tired of it. But this book is way more than that. It has veggie chips and no-boil pasta and many other creative ideas. The photos look delicious and make me drool.
Damaris Phillips who was the winner of Food Network Star season 9 and the host of Southern at Heart has a book coming out on October 17th, Southern Girl Meets Vegetarian Boy. The book features southern classics that have been adapted for vegetarians.
One of our favorite plant-based chefs, Matthew Kenney, has a new book Plantlab publishing on November 14th. This might be the book I am looking forward to the most on this list because I am huge fan of his work. When we were on vacation in Maine and few years ago we were able to eat at one of his restaurants and it maybe one of the top 10 best meals I have every had. His food is very creative and experimental with a focus on raw food.
These are just a few of the books I am really excited about this fall you might also want to check out the Fall Yoga Books I am excited about.
