I indulged my cookbook addiction on the weekend and ordered two new books from Chapters online. One was "Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking: A Memoir of Food and Longing" by Anya Von Bremzen. It's written as an autobiographical story and has no recipe pics.
The second book was "Plenty" by Yotam Ottolenghi - co-author of "Jeruselem," a book I bought last year and is great! Plenty is completely vegetarian, and I've been wanting to pick it up for some time now. It's got all the bells and whistles as far as recipe pics go.
They arrived today. I can't wait to read and make dishes from both!
Cheers and Bon appétit!
