Back in the kitchen during this current lockdown? Try out some new recipes, and maybe start dreaming of a new home business with the new techniques you’ll learn.
Dessert Person by Claire Saffitz
There isn’t anyone in the last few years with an interest in baking that hasn’t heard of Claire Saffitz. First shooting up to fame at Bon Appétit during its pre-scandal heyday, Saffitz was a millennial hero for those who enjoyed her humorous takes while baking.
Her new cookbook is perfect for the first time baker, or the experienced whiz who wants to try something new. Recipes like Apple and Concord Grape Crumble Pie, Strawberry-Cornmeal Layer Cake and Malted Forever Brownies will have you salivating just by looking at the beautiful photos, and excited to get to work in the kitchen.
Cook This Book: Techniques That Teach and Recipes That Teach by Molly Baz
I’ll be honest and say that while everyone’s BA-alum favorite is Saffitz, I have always loved Molly Baz just as much. Cook This Book is for those who would like to start making great meals but lack the skills and confidence to start (so, me).
Baz is here to impart her wisdom, and provide lessons from her arsenal of knowledge. Breaking down the essentials of cooking, you’ll find yourself making Schmaltzy Onions and Dill, Chorizo and Chickpea Carbonara, and learning lessons on the importance of salt, balance and flavor.

Take a gander at her Fat Noodles with Crushed Herb Sauce. You’ll never want anything else.
