Cookbook Calendar & Best Sellers | August 2012

Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving

We’re heading into the home stretch of summer. Yes, I hate to say it, but, it’s true. This is also the time of year that our garden’s are overflowing with a hopefully huge harvest. I know that I’ve been getting a few nice ripe tomatoes already.

We would all like to preserve the goodness of summer as long as possible. So why not try your hand at a little home canning? I know I’ve considered it. I haven’t pulled the trigger yet. But, I have at least investigated some of the options.

We’ve posted this month’s Cookbook Man’s Cookbook Calendar. There are some great new releases that you’ll want to have for your very own. Also, a current August Best Sellers list is up for your perusal and comment.



The Joy of Pickling: 250 Flavor-Packed Recipes for Vegetables and More from Garden or Market  Put 'em Up! You Can Can!: A Visual Step-by-Step Guide to Canning, Preserving, and Pickling, with 100 Recipes  The Joy of Jams, Jellies, and Other Sweet Preserves: 200 Classic and Contemporary Recipes Showcasing the Fabulous Flavors of Fresh Fruits

We also recently posted a review of a fantastic book on canning and preserving just about anything. Check out our review of Preserving: The Canning and Freezing Guide for All Seasons by Pat Crocker.

Cookbook Calendar & Best Sellers | June 2012

Trupp's Wholefood Kitchen: Eat Well, Live Well, Feel Great

June 1st signals the first day of summer for me. I know that some of you will wait until the actual Summer Solstice on June 20th, but, I’m starting my celebration now. There’s no reason to voluntarily shorten the season by twenty days.

And, with the start of summer, comes all of the cookbook releases that are warm weather related. You’ve got it, grilling. That’s right, barbecue cookbooks will top the list as a culinary genre for the next couple of months. So, you’ll need to have your tongs and full supply of charcoal if you’re going to take advantage of everything the summer cooking season has to offer.

We have posted our June 2012 Cookbookman’s Cookbook Calendar, along with the updated best sellers list for the month. Just in case you would like to get a jump on the grilling, we’ve graciously provided you with a few summer selections to light your fire.



Weber's Smoke: A Guide to Smoke Cooking for Everyone and Any Grill The Great Outdoors Cookbook: 140 Recipes for Barbecues, Campfires, Picnics and More Mastering Barbecue: Tons of Recipes, Hot Tips, Neat Techniques, and Indispensable Know How Jerk from Jamaica: Barbecue Caribbean Style

Now get out there and start grilling. There’s only three months until fall. Don’t waste a minute of precious BBQ time.

The Best Cookbook Lists Just Keep on Coming


I know it’s that time of year. But, I’m already suffering from a case of Best Burnout. Best cookbook posts are everywhere. I’m not suggesting that these aren’t well written and thoughtful pieces. It’s just that there’s a swarm of them.

I was hoping to write a post highlighting some of my own choices for the best cookbooks of 2011. But, I’m not sure I really want to be just tossed on top of the already heaping pile of posts. I almost feel obligated. After all, the name of this site is  I’ll think about it and get back to you.

In the meantime, there were a bunch of best lists posted in the past week or so. You can check out some of the selections right here. Of course, there are some regular, old fashioned cookbook reviews mixed in there too.

Out This Week: Serious Eats, Treats Truck and Lots of Baking


BUY IT! - Serious Eats: A Comprehensive Guide to Making and Eating Delicious Food Wherever You Are

November 1st is the BIG day this week. A ton of books are out that day.

Included on Tuesday, is the digital edition of Linda McCartney’s Vegetarian Home Cooking. This book was originally published in 1992. Back then, the vegetarian culinary lifestyle is nowhere near what it is today. Looking back on it, Linda’s book was groundbreaking. It brought attention to what was then considered a fringe lifestyle.

Also notable this week are entries by John Besh, Kim Ima and a bunch of good looking books on baking.

Let’s get to our list!

Out This Week: Volt, Tons of eBooks and Vegan Pies

OUT THIS WEEK: Oct. 24 to 30, 2011

BUY IT! - VOLT ink.: Recipes, Stories, Brothers

The last full week of October 2011 brings a couple of much anticipated releases to the cookbook market. And, six of those on our release list are eBooks. That’s the most of any week to date. I think we can safely say that digital cookbooks have moved beyond the novelty stage.

Bryan and Michael Voltaggio of Top Chef fame are out with Volt ink. It’s been hyped (hard to believe, right?). So, I’m sure it will be a big launch day fav.

Emeril Lagasse’s Skillets and Other One-Pot Wonders has been digitized and is available for download this week. At $18.99, it’s at the very top of the eBook price range. The paperback edition hit shelves back in September.

OK, enough chatter, let’s get to this week list.

BUY IT! - Essential Pepin: More Than 700 All-Time Favorites from My Life in Food

If you’re out looking for a cookbook on Tuesday, October 18th, you’ll be swamped with choices. There are lots of great books being unboxed that day including the latest effort from a culinary legend, Jacques Pepin.

There’s an interesting book on sausage making out this week, Sausages: Mouthwatering Recipes from Merguez to Mortadella. Chef Charlie Trotter lends his comments to the forward. Worth a look I think.

More ebooks hit the market and pre-holiday releases are starting to push their way through the pipeline. As we get closer to the end of the year, you can expect some big name chef/authors will be vying for your hard earned gift giving dollars. Brace yourself.

Enough talk, Let’s get to this weeks list.

Out This Week: Ferran Adria, Julia and Butch Bakery

New This Week - October 3rd to 9th, 2011

BUY IT! - The Family Meal: Home Cooking with Ferran Adria

I’m not sure what is so special about October 4th. But, something is. No less than sixteen cookbooks are slated for release that day. Coincidence? Maybe.

One of the highlights this week is the release of, The Family Meal: Home Cooking with Ferran Adria, This is a truly amazing cookbook. It has recipes and food photography that leaves most other books in the dust. This is a must have for any serious or semi-serious home chef. A great look at what the staff gets to eat at one of the worlds best restaurants, elBulli.

Also, this week marks a milestone of sorts for the eBook market. Julia Child’s culinary epic, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Volume 1, is out for the Kindle. Since Julia was a pioneer in bringing cooking to TV, it’s only fitting that her 1961 classic helps usher in the digital age of cookbooks.

Enough talk, Let’s get to it.
