So...back to school and some of us may have more time on our hands to seek out and enjoy new cookbooks...I will have to squeeze them into a rather busy work schedule, but you know I will...what's floating your culinary lit boat these days? LOTS of new releases coming up.
PS if you're interested in Japanese food, I highly recommend "Pretty Good Number One: An American Family Eats Tokyo" by Matthew Amster-Burton, a travel memoir featuring his daughter Iris, who seems a Lulu type to me (she may even enjoy the book herself?). Humorous (I cracked up on the train several times) and non-cloying (no Cooking With Dexter-style excesses, shame on you, Pete Wells). MOST enjoyable.
