Cooking: Wrap up a real treat
Jim Lahey, whose revolutionary no-knead bread liberated bakers with the publication of his first book, My Bread, has done it again. The Sullivan Street Bakery Cookbook, named for Lahey’s renowned New York City establishment, teaches bread lovers how to make flavorful loaves by using natural sourdough leavening. (Don’t worry, instructions and step-by-step photos for making the essential liquid starter are included.) Lahey shares his recipes for Pane Tuscano, Multigrain and many more of his legendary Sullivan Street breads and pizzas—plus recipes for his “Italian-ish” takes on breakfast eggs and cakes, slow roasts, salads and sweets—in this excellent cookbook.
Need a gift for a fervent foodie? Kristen Kish Cooking: Recipes and Techniques will do the trick. Kish is young, adventurous and a former model, and her aesthetic eye is readily apparent in this elegantly styled cookbook. Kish is a strong believer in the power of mastering basic cooking methods and carefully coaches readers in everything from braising and blanching to poaching and pickling. Kish’s creations take time and concentration, but with recipes like Halibut in a smoky Ham Hock Sauce, Beef Rib Eye with Leek Fritters and Mustard Sabayon, and Sour Cream Pecan Cake with Malted Milk Crème Fraîche, it’s worth it.

COOKING TOP PICK
A true son of New England, Boston chef Matt Jennings deeply appreciates the region’s iconic dishes, local heritage and produce. He’s a gifted culinary innovator, too, who delights in adding a revelatory tweak or an unexpected combination of ingredients in order to turn a superb New England classic like clam chowder or brown bread into something a little different and a little more interesting. In Homegrown: Cooking from My New England Roots, Jennings’ gorgeously illustrated debut cookbook, he shares more than 100 recipes that are perfect for the home cook. Some of them are easy, like the super-comforting Farmstead Mac and Cheese, and some need more time, technique and energy, like his lavish Seafood Tourtière. But every recipe is infused with Jennings’ love of New England and his appreciation of fabulous food.
