This Will Make It Taste Good
Each chapter of This Will Make It Taste Good is built on a flavor hero—a simple but powerful recipe like her briny green sauce, spiced nuts, fruit preserves, deeply caramelized onions, and spicy pickled tomatoes. Like a belt that lends you a waist when you’re feeling baggy, these flavor heroes brighten, deepen, and define your food. And because food is the language Vivian uses to talk about her life, that’s what these recipes do, next to stories that offer a glimpse at the people, challenges, and lessons learned that stock the pantry of her life.

I Cook in Color
There’s a big, colorful world out there, and Asha Gomez takes inspiration from all of it, especially the food. Best known for her easy mix of cooking traditions from the American South and her homeland of Kerala in Southern India, Asha Gomez continues to evolve her unique cooking style. In this next vibrant cookbook, I COOK IN COLOR: Bright Flavors from My Kitchen and Around the World, Asha embraces dishes from across the globe, and allows readers to take a flavorful voyage from the comfort of their own home kitchen. Co-author Martha Hall Foose is the author of Screen Doors & Sweet Tea: Recipes and Tales of a Southern Cook, the best-selling homage to Southern cooking that won both the James Beard Award for American Cooking and the Southern Independent Booksellers Award.
