Elisabeth Prueitt's new cookbook delivers simple, hearty food for busy but conscientious family cooks, along with signature sweet treats.

Each product we feature has been independently selected and reviewed by our editorial team. If you make a purchase using the links included, we may earn commission.

Elisabeth Prueitt wants to inspire people to get in their kitchens and cook. Prueitt, co-founder of Tartine Bakery & Cafe and Tartine Manufactory in San Francisco and co-author of Tartine, aims to do just that in her new solo book, Tartine All Day: Modern Recipes for the Home Cook. With 200 practical, delicious recipes, it's a book meant to live in the kitchen, one she hopes will make people "want to jump up and make something."

Eating healthy should still be delicious.

Prueitt herself is a busy working mom, and so her cooking has become more simplified over the years. Recipes like Spring Risotto and Pan-Roasted Eggplant are easy yet elegant, while dishes like Ceci Cacio e Pepe (roasted chickpeas flavored like the pasta dish cacio e pepe) showcase Prueitt's creativity. Nowhere does her innovation shine more, though, than with her desserts. A classically trained pastry chef with gluten intolerance, Prueitt has gone through "years of trial and error and finding new grains to work with" to perfect her gluten-free desserts. A robust chapter showcases some of her favorites.

Featured here is one of the simplest and most beautiful desserts from the book. Champagne becomes gelée with the addition of a little gelatin and sugar. "It's festive," Prueitt says, "because Champagne just is festive. And it's easy to make." We think that, with celebratory Champagne and strawberries, it also makes a lovely way to honor Mom on Mother's Day.

Home Cooking

In her new cookbook, Andrea Nguyen shows you how to get Vietnamese flavors using ingredients easily available at national supermarket chains in the U.S. Adapting these flavors for American-supermarket-friendly ingredients is familiar to Nguyen, because it's exactly what her family had to do when they arrived as refugees in 1975. With this cookbook, favorite dishes such as banh mi, dumplings, lettuce cups, and pho are made approachable for the home kitchen.

Modern Comfort Food: A Barefoot Contessa Cookbook

If there’s anything that 2020 has taught us, it’s that comfort food not only has the power to soothe people during the hardest of times, it also has the ability to bring us all together — even when we’re six feet or more apart. Just ask Ina Garten. In her newest and twelfth cookbook, Ina shines a beautiful light on the comfort foods that have gotten her, her husband, Jeffrey, and her nearest and dearest friends through the darkest of times and the most joyous of moments. Giving each dish a modern upgrade, Ina offers a new and delicious approach to comfort food classics like Grilled Cheese Sandwiches (with a generous smear of mango chutney on the inside of her bread), Split Pea Soup (topped with crispy and spicy kielbasa sausage pieces) and Tuna Melts (served with a towering pile of crunchy microgreens), while still paying homage to the flavor notes and textures that make them so beloved. Ina also shares her go-to way of dressing up her all-time favorite comfort food — the BLT. By adding in cooked lobster meat and creamy avocado slices, Ina states it’s now good enough to serve "to your mother-in-law."

The Family That Cooks Together: 85 Zakarian Family Recipes from Our Table to Yours

It's safe to say the Zakarian girls, Madeline and Anna (both in middle school), know their way around the kitchen, thanks to their Iron Chef dad, Geoffrey Zakarian.

Super Good Baking for Kids

There’s a reason Duff Goldman is known throughout the food industry as the "Ace of Cakes" — there isn’t much he can’t do when you give him a bowl and some baking ingredients. That being said, Duff will be the first person to admit that despite his years of baking prowess, he’s still learning. That’s the exact purpose behind Duff’s new Super Good Baking for Kids cookbook — to teach kid bakers of all ages how to become a baking ace in their very own right. "Think of the recipes as a coloring book," Duff writes on the introduction page he then goes on to explain how once you master coloring within the lines, you can go off and make your very own designs and drawings. Baking is the exact same way — once you master simple cookies, cakes and tarts, you can use the same basic skills and techniques behind them to make melt-in-your-mouth ice cream sandwiches, irresistible cream pies, memorizing rainbow blondies and so much more. Broken up into seven different chapters — which each focus on a different category of baked treat — this cookbook also teaches kids how to make everything from sprinkle-studded Confetti Snickerdoodles, to bakery-quality Bear Claws, to bedazzling Unicorn Cupcakes. Duff also includes step-by-step guide pages for things like how to make the picture-perfect chocolate ganache and how to properly pipe a cake border.

Martha Stewart's Cake Perfection

When the Swiss Buttercream recipe fell out of my copy of Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes after a decade of frequent use, I thought it might be time for a new baking book. Luckily, Martha's latest is just what my cookbook shelf was missing. This beautiful guide from the editors of Martha Stewart Living does not disappoint. It includes plenty of tips on tools and decorating, as well as a robust collection of foundational recipes for frostings, fillings and cake bases. Looking for an attention-grabber? The Show Cakes chapter is dedicated to desserts with mirror-glaze finishes, fancy piping and elegant fillings, like Eggnog Semifreddo Genoise. If traditional cakes are more your style, head straight to the Layer Cakes chapter for classics like devil’s food and carrot cake, plus wow-worthy creations like Chocolate Pecan Guinness Caramel Cake. There’s a brilliant section dedicated to sheet cakes — each one as beautiful as it is practical — as well as chapters for cupcakes, everyday cakes and occasions. If you seek perfection in your cake-making, look no further.

In Bibi's Kitchen: The Recipes and Stories of Grandmothers from the Eight African Countries That Touch the Indian Ocean

Recipes can be as much of a family history as scrapbooks — they’re an edible link to the places and traditions of previous generations. In Bibi’s Kitchen pays tribute to the life experiences and culinary expertise of grandmothers from eight African nations on the Indian Ocean. Author Hawa Hassan, with Julia Turshen, interviewed the matriarchs, sharing stories in the experts’ own words, as well as charming photos and each Bibi’s pick of treasured recipes. The choices each of which recipes to share help illuminate her life’s journey, such as Matoke, a traditional Tanzanian plantain stew, and a classic Italian-American Lasagna for Ma Vicky, who now lives in New York. There are gingery spritzes from Madagascar and Doro Wat from Eritrea, as well as dozens of other recipes that make for the kind of edible scrapbook worth savoring with your loved ones.

This book eloquently thanks the staff and patrons, as well as provides the tried-and-true recipes so that you can enjoy the full Barbuto-experience in your own kitchen. While it’s easy to jump in and start cooking the customer favorites, including the Kale Salad with Anchovy Vinaigrette and Pecorino, as well as the JW Chicken with Salsa Verde and Pasta Carbonara, there are other dishes throughout the book that pack flavor and simple technique, such as the Cioppino (or Fisherman’s Stew) and Pork Chop Milanese Al Ouvo. He also makes sure to honor his loved ones through different dishes, including Sally’s Birthday Paella a dish Chef Waxman would make for his wife on her birthday while they vacationed in France. There’s even an extensive section of cocktails and pastries, including the long-lived menu item of Budino, or "pudding" in Italian. When thanking his loyal customers, Chef Waxman writes, "I tried to build something different, a joint that is as comfortable as your favorite show, as rich as your best relationship, and as fun as watching puppies romp." If you had the chance to eat at the beloved Barbuto, you most certainly felt all of these things as you made your way through a meal, and Chef Waxman ensures that you’ll feel the same as your cook through this book.

You'll find Choco Pan de Coco (pillowy soft Honduran rolls laced with coconut and chocolate), Birote (a Mexican sandwich bread similar to a baguette), Pan Gallego (a Spanish loaf with a distinct knotted shape) and Muffuletta Rolls, where the iconic olive salad is mixed into the dough and then baked to savory perfection. Bryan's book will make you rethink sourdough baking and open up a new world of tasty possibilities.

Canning and Preserving: The Beginner's Guide to Preparing, Canning, and Storing Veggies, Fruits, Meats, and More

Patricia Telesco and Jeanne Maack make the timely (if a bit grim) case for mastering age-old (and newer) preserving arts in the name of self-sufficiency and limiting our "exposure to stores, coffee shops, and fast-food restaurants." And despite the title, even experienced preservers will find pertinent advice in encyclopedic chapters on Canning, Freezing, Drying and Pickling that dive deep into equipment, technique, safety, storage and ingredients. The final chapters include 150 recipes for everything from jams and pickles to marinades, stews, fruit leathers and jerkies. Preserving is both science and art, so "be fastidious," the authors advise, but they also provide lots of troubleshooting tips if things go awry. And along the way they include useful advice like this, which thrilled one waste-sensitive reader: "When a. recipe calls. to blanch a vegetable, don't throw that water away! It's rich in flavor and vitamins. Instead, reduce it down over a low flame, adding whatever spices you like, and freeze it for future soups, gravies, and stews." And always remember, "If a cucumber floats in water, it's not a good pickling cucumber."

The Flavor Equation: The Science of Great Cooking Explained in More Than 100 Essential Recipes

Brussels sprouts aren’t just Brussels sprouts in The Flavor Equation. They’re the "Lilliputian cabbages" that author Nik Sharma recalls as the first memorable flavors he tried after moving to the United States. In his latest book, Sharma asserts that the emotional value of a recipe — whether positive or negative — is as important as the typical sensory balance. The recipes are grouped by flavor attributes, including Brightness, Richness and Saltiness, but many are chosen for their personal emotional appeal. A holiday-worthy Masala Cheddar Cornbread, inspired by Sharma’s love of cheese, stands out among Sweetness Black Pepper Chicken, found under Fieriness, is a dish Sharma prepared for his husband during their move to LA. The aforementioned Brussels sprouts are part of a Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with walnuts, mint, scallions and a garlicky dressing, found in Bitterness. Sharma, an award-winning blogger, author, photographer and recipe developer, is adept at succinctly identifying the appeal of a dish and making things relatable to food geeks and beginners alike. There’s extensive and intensely satisfying science at the start of the book, but each of the 100 or so recipes includes bullet points breaking down the flavor equation, with alchemical details or a spotlight on specific roles ingredients play, making it a positive equation indeed.

5. Share teaser photos and recipes

OK, enough about general strategies on social media. What about the most important part: promoting your cookbook?

Let’s start with the run-up to your publishing date. You want to build the hype and show people what’s on offer – without giving away all the secrets you wrote in your recipe book. It’s a difficult balance to strike.

One method is to share teasers from your book. Start with something small – a fragment of a photo, a corner of the cover – and work up to bigger spoilers. In the last few weeks before the book is released, you can share teaser recipes to give people a taste of what’s to come.

You can be smart with how you share these recipes, too. If you don’t want to give away a recipe to everyone online – then don’t!

Offer exclusive recipes to people who sign up for your newsletter, or pre-order the book. Just make sure you announce those exclusives on social media, so that everyone else knows what they’re missing.

More info about The How to Eat to Beat Disease Cookbook

Bolster your body’s natural defense systems through diet with this complete guide and cookbook

Your body has powerful systems in place to keep you healthy and prevent disease, and the foods you eat can help those systems function at their best. The How to Eat to Beat Disease Cookbook offers a complete overview of the popular Eat to Beat Disease program by Dr. William Li and provides a meal plan and 75 delicious recipes to help you implement the program.

How to Eat to Beat Disease Cookbook includes:

  • Bioactive recipes―Each recipe has at least three (but usually many, many more) bioactive (or health-promoting) ingredients, from fresh produce to herbs and spices, so you can maximize the benefits of every meal.
  • A 14-day meal plan―Easily adopt the Eat to Beat Disease program with two weeks of pre-planned meals and grocery shopping lists to help you get started on the right foot.
  • An intro to the body’s defense systems―Learn about the body’s five major disease-fighting systems (angiogenesis, cell regeneration, microbiome health, DNA protection, and the immune system), how they work, and how food supports them.
  • Recipe tips and tricks―Find variation suggestions with most recipes so you can make the dishes even healthier and adjust them to suit every taste and dietary preference.

Help your body heal and protect itself with the practical guidance in How to Eat to Beat Disease Cookbook.

I start off with an in-depth exploration of the body’s natural defense systems, how they work and what foods help support them. My reference pages in the back are extensive so if you’ve got any questions or want to reference the studies I was using, they’re all there for you! From there, you’ll see all the foods laid out in a multi-page food list for reference when planning your recipes and meals. After that, I’ve got a full 2-week meal plan that uses both recipes in the book as well as other simple, disease fighting ingredients you likely have on-hand. I keep it really simple, using leftovers and ingredients to make your weekly meal prep easy and seamless.

From there, you’ll move into chapters with recipes for: breakfast, salads and soups, seafood, chicken, vegetarian (this is the largest chapter!), then baked goods and treats. You know I wasn’t going to do a healthy cookbook without baked goods and sweet treats….

The Inspiration

My work as a dietitian has pretty much one theme: helping people use food to improve their health. From my work as an intern at the Veterans Hospital in Chicago and my rotations in the city supporting people living with HIV or at the Children’s Hospital, dealing with serious illnesses, I saw how disease can ravage a body first-hand. My first job as a dietitian was at a large hospital where I spent a lot of time on the cardiac floor, educating folks who had just had heart attacks.

I was recruited to work at the Block Center for Integrative Cancer Treatment where I spent years as a dietitian there supporting people going through active treatment – chemotherapy and radiation – with plant-based diet education, supplements and lifestyle changes all geared towards calming the inflammation, controlling angiogenesis, supporting the immune system, and nurturing the microbiome so they could heal.

My next stop was at a large biotech start-up here in Seattle, Arivale, where we assessed people genetic markers and blood labs. Guess what we were tracking in both the genetics and blood? Inflammatory markers, immune markers, and microbiome data! In both of these jobs where I had access to so much data, I learned that you can absolutely, 100% influence health markers in the body with nutrition. It’s so incredible. By supporting the body’s natural processes, you feel better, experience less pain, support your body’s healing and increase energy.

I now run two virtual private practices here in Seattle – Champagne Nutrition and Seattle Cancer Nutritionist where my team and I utilize concierge nutrition programs that include nutrigenomic testing (for some, not all), meal prep with an anti-inflammatory approach, and a very high-touch, hands on partnership approach to helping clients change their health and change their lives. If you’re intrigued and you know that you need help, we’re here for you so please join the newsletter and reach out to contact me and we’ll talk.

The Journey

I’ve wanted to write books my entire life. As a young child, I “wrote books”, all the time. I uncovered piles of them in boxes of old schoolwork ranging from string-bound construction paper in early grade school up to gigantic typed documents in high school and college when I was an English major.

Being a dietitian really gave me the platform to finally write nutrition books that break down the science into bite sized pieces and also make it approachable and accessible to all. If there’s one thing I want this book to do is to help people across the country live healthier lives. I strived to keep it simple, evidence-based and easy to use. I pulled on all my years of clinical experience including my integrative and holistic education I received during my Masters degree at Bastyr University. My goal was to lay out step by step how to use foods to support the natural healing processes of the body.

The Recipes

I’m so excited about these recipes! My strong preference is to be plant-based and cook vegan and vegetarian recipes but my ultimate goal is also to create recipes that are accessible and interesting to all. For that reason, there is a chapter in this book that features chicken and there’s one that features seafood. If desired, you could weave in other types of meat that are part of your diet and preferences. Alternatively, for the vast majority of these recipes, you could remove the meat completely and make it vegetarian.

Some of my favorites in the book are

If you or anyone you know needs a new cookbook with healthy recipes and has questions or an interest in harnessing the healing power of natural foods, be sure to order it online or – my preference – from one of the local bookstores selling it currently such as Ballast Book Co or Liberty Bay Books (and grab it right away for the pre-order price guarantee!). If you’re a person who wants to make eating healthier easy and still delicious, this book is for you.
