Welcome back chefs (at home) and Happy May!
The cookbook that I have selected for May is a popular one and most of you might already have it or at least have heard or seen the bright pink cover in bookstores. It is Cherry Bombe by Kerry Diamond and Claudia Wu.
There are a lot of reasons why I selected this particular cookbook for our first proper cookbook club. First, we are still in crisis mode and most places are still under Stay at Home order which means bookstores are closed. As I mentioned above, this book is pretty popular and most people might already have it. So most people can join in the fun right away without having to wait for the book to arrive in the mail. Secondly, this particular cookbook is a compilation of recipes from many leading women in the food industry. This includes and is not limited to Padma Laxmi, Christina Tossi, Melissa Clark, Molly Yeh, and others! I love the variety of women they have chosen for this book. They are not all professional chefs but have something to do with food. And the third reason, this is just a beautiful book to add to your collection or just have it on the coffee table. For anyone who loves collecting cookbook…ahem me...this is just a must-have!
