New Fall Cookbooks, eek.

As expected, there is a whole raft of upcoming titles that sound enormously appealing. Among the titles that I am anxious to see are:
The Mozza Cookbook
Momofuko Milk Bar
Eleven Madison Park
Cooking Without Borders -- Anita Lo
Heston Blumenthal at Home
Home Cooking with Jean-Georges
Molto Batali - Simple Family Meals from My Home to Yours
Lidia's Italy in America

And sadly, the list goes on.

What new arrivals are you anxious to get your hands on?

      I have the original Italian Baker, and i's great. I'm also looking forward to Jacques Pepin's new book too.

      1. re: emily

        I was one of the testers for Asian Tofu. There are some mighty fine tofu recipes in it. They can turn someone who is not a tofu lover into a tofu eater. It comes out in Feb.

          1. re: buttertart

            oh, it's andrea! i want it too. and the new dunlop. i feel like i should want pepin...


          2. re: Candy

            I love tofu, and I love asian food. I'm there. And yes, the new Dunlop for sure.

          3. re: emily

            Forty Years of Chez Panisse. (Although, it appears to have no recipes...)


            1. re: The Dairy Queen

              This is not a cookbook, but seems to be a paean to the Genius of Alice. I'll pass.

              1. re: pikawicca

                Yes, the more I read about it, the more I agree with you. I was hoping/thinking it was a cookbook, or, would at least have representative recipes over the years or something. Nope.

                I think this will be a library book instead of a purchased book. I do want to see it, but I don't think I need to own it. Bah.


            2. re: emily

              emily: Is the Food of Morocco by Paula Wolfert a NEW book or her old one?

            3. Tart Love by Holly Herrick

              1. The one and only, the divine Fuchsia Dunlop's "Every Grain of Rice" featuring recipes from all over China (which, despite David Sedaris' snarky opinion of it, is the country with the most varied, sophisticated, delicious, and wonderful cuisines in the world, and a country I am very happy to have spent considerable time in, eating my brains out). I cannot wait to get my hands on this book.
                The Pépin.
                Saw the Blumenthal in London and have kicked myself for not getting it ever since.
                The Field (how is it revised, one wonders?). It's one of the best cookbooks ever, period.
                Where are you finding out about these, roxlet, you evil woman?

                1. re: buttertart

                  I was on Amazon, as wattacetti says, and I started seeing all these interesting cookbooks, all of which were pre-pub.

                  1. re: buttertart

                    I know you're aware of this, but for those who are not, her website is a delight:


                    Love the fact she is growing Sichuan Peppercorns at home. :0)

                    1. re: SilverlakeGirl

                      I had been following it a while back, and will again, now. The Sichuan peppercorn thing is very amusing. (I'm so crazy about her I named my new, superspunky, and adorable Russian blue-ish kitty Fuchsia.)

                    2. Momofuko Milk Bar
                      Heston Blumenthal at Home
                      Essential Pépin

                      Also have Martin Picard's treatise on maple syrup on the order sheets.

                      Buttertart: you can find titles at least on the site by sorting via publication date.

                      1. re: wattacetti

                        I dare not tread that path. Although the other chef's books don't grab me.

                      2. I want Turkish Cookery by Gillie Bhasan which is currently out of print but being reissued in November. And the new Dunlop, obviously, but it's not out until next February.
