I swear every year that I am going to stop with the cookbooks. But honestly I can’t help it. In fact, on my desk right now is a stack of cookbooks that is threatening to topple over, right on top of my shiny new Macbook Air. Which normally I would be horrified at the prospect, but I love my cookbooks and my Macbook Air is under warranty right? Though I guess explaining to the genius bar guy that a mountain of books fell on the computer would be a little awkward. That said, instead of doing my usual MASSIVE cookbook roundup like I’ve done in the past, I’m going to do something a little different. I present to you Cookbook Week here on Eat the Love. For the next five days I’ll be featuring five cookbooks per post, for five days in a row. 25 books in all. Yeah, that’s a lot of cookbooks, but trust me when I said I tried to whittle them down to less and I couldn’t. BEST OF ALL, each post will include a giveaway for one of the cookbooks I feature in the post. So swing by and visit this here blog each day this week for a chance to win a cookbook.
For today’s giveaway, stick around to the end of this post for a chance to win David Lebovitz’ My Paris Kitchen. [This giveaway is closed!].
Of course, I’m not one to play favorites with cookbooks, but David Lebovitz has always been a long time favorite cookbook author (and blogger) of mine, even before I started this blog. Funny, witty and intelligent, his recipes are rock solid and his personality shines through in each story. My Paris Kitchen doesn’t disappoint with warm anecdotes, beautiful photography and sage advice on how to navigate the craziness of living in Paris. I immediately made his caramel pork ribs recipe when I got the book (they were as fantastic as they sounded) and can’t wait to dive into some of his other classic French dishes like cassoulet, croque-monsieur and steak frites. Completely with stories and side trips interjected between recipes and chapters, as well as gorgeous photography of Paris and France, this is the sort of cookbook that belongs both in the kitchen as you cook your way through it, and in the bedroom, as you’re curled up under the covers reading it before you fall asleep dreaming of your French adventure.
Journeying beyond the French kitchen to Arabic cuisine, Nadia Zerouali and Merijn Tol’s Under the Shade of Olive Trees is a whimsical cookbook with a lighthearted design that belies the strength of its content. Focusing more on ingredients and the pantry items needed for Arabic cuisine, the recipes are grounded in accessibility and ease. Though the recipe occasionally need a specific ingredient that can only be found at specialty grocery store (harissa, rose water or sumac), most of the ingredients and recipes can be made with common household ingredients or ones that can be found at the well stocked grocery store. The recipes aren’t fussy nor are they groundbreaking but they are solid and approachable without be intimidating, the perfect introduction to this sort of cuisine.
I can’t talk enough about how much I adore my friend Karen Solomon. Sure she’s the queen of the DIY aesthetic, making her own kimchi and canning her own jam, but let’s face it, I live in San Francisco. EVERYONE I know does that sort of thing. But Karen does it with such aplomb and down-to-earth appeal that I can’t but help want to shake my head in agreement when I run into her at a local acclaimed restaurant and she says “the kimchi here is good…but you know…mine’s better.” Her latest book Asian Pickles is a testament to her working knowledge of preserving food, with chapters broken down into countries like Japan, Korea, China, India and Southeast Asia. Not only are there recipes for various version of pickles and preserved vegetables from all over Asia but Karen gives recipes for various sauces, pastes and other ingredients used in making these pickles, like gochuchang (Korean spicy fermented red chile paste), xo sauce and Huy Fong’s chili garlic sauce (which she affectionately calls “cock sauce”). And yes, there are a dizzying array of kimchi recipes (Napa, Stuffed Cucumber, Water, Rolled Mustard Greens and more) included in the book.
When I talked to the publicity person about the book Dim Sum by Janice Wong and Ma Jian Jun she told me she wish her fingers were nimble enough to make the folds in the dim sum. She was only sort of joking, as most of the recipes look totally doable, though a number of them might need more flexible fingers (or some good old fashioned practice). What sets this book apart from other dim sum books out there though is how the dim sum is categorized and broken down by the skin and flour used to wrap each dumpling or bun. The subtitle to the book is “a flour-forward approach to traditional favorites and contemporary creations” and it couldn’t be more accurate. Too many books out there have you using prepackaged dumpling wrappers or rice sheets to make dim sum. This book tells you exactly how to make the dumpling skin from scratch, what ingredients are necessary and precisely how it should be made. The book is NOT for the lazy or for those looking for a shortcut however. Some of the ingredients may be difficult to source if you don’t have access to an Asian grocery store. But if you are looking for a book that delves deeper into contemporary dim sum, and how to make professional level dumplings this is the book for you. One more thing, all the ingredients listed are in grams and milliliters so be sure you have an accurate scale, as volume measurements are not included at all.
The charcuteria of Spain tends to be overlooked compared to Italian and French but Charcuteria, the Soul of Spain is here to rectify that. An extensively researched book that not only explores and explains Spanish butchery and meat-curing, but also gives recipes for dishes as well as instructions on preparation techniques. With lavish photographs, adorable illustrations and a culinary history of curing meat and butchery in Spain, Charcuteria is one of those books chocked full of stories AND information. A large book, one that could easily be viewed as a coffee table kind, it had me plotting on how I can start hanging legs of pork and building a curing chamber in my tiny one bedroom apartment. Somehow I don’t think my partner would approve however. So I’ll just read about making Jamon Ibérico and just dream of a day when I’ll have my own curing room. Right next to my walk-in closet filled with my bakeware and kitchen equipment and the library room with organized by subject cookbooks.

I would love to visit Israel and eat my way through that country, especially after reading about David Lebovitz’s trip there. Everything was so beautiful and delicious looking!
I would love to eat my way through India. I don’t think I could pick a single city.
I’ve always wanted to go on a lighthouse road trip, so spending my time driving down the Eastern seaboard eating ALL THE SEAFOOD while visiting lighthouses would be amazing!
I’d start in Rome, then pick up a flight to Athens… mmm!

The Suzzzz says
Hong Kong (but seriously how can anyone really only pick one city?!?)
Having read a number of David’s posts about Israel, Lebanon, etc. I’d love to visit a middle-eastern area and discover all those flavors. I do worry about my wife’s food allergies though.
I’d love to go to Paris someday and eat ALL THE THINGS!

Now I’m planning a trip to St Louis–need your recommendations!
I’d love to visit and eat my way through Malta
Gina Brown says
OMG! I don’t know where to start! I’d love to go across this country and discover all the different regional cooking. Then, Italy, France, Greece…and then all the Asian countries….
New York City where you can get the best food in the world from a deli to a four-star restaurant.
Camilla @ Culinary Adventures says
If I hadn’t lived – and eaten – in Rome for 13 months, that would be the top of my list. At this point, I would say Spain. What a great giveaway!
I have to say Italy. Or Mexico. Mmmm.
Di Larson says
Oh my goodness! I would love a copy of My Paris Kitchen. I so enjoy cookbooks with great photos, great story telling and, of course, great recipes! Thank you!
Manette Gutterman says
I’d love to go to Paris! Anywhere that honors wine, bread, cheese, and pastry is my kind of hang.
Looks like a beautiful book!
Kerrey De Paoli says
I’d love to try to eat my way through Paris too. Did my best to eat my way through Barcelona and Italy and would love to try to complete that mission as well!
Aaron Rishell says
I started to think maybe it should be somewhere in Italy. Then I thought about it and San Francisco is where I would love to work my way through.

Jane Hallman says
Ahh – France – would love to eat my way through France and end up in Paris.
Devon Hernandez says
It’s so hard to pick just one place but after reading the current Saveur magazine, I’ll say India. I love how they divided the issue into regional cuisine style, and that left me wanting to eat my way around the country! Thank you so much for the generous giveaway. Your blog is great, really enjoying reading your posts and can’t wait to read the upcoming book profiles. 🙂
Maureen C. Berry says
Paris! of course. Right after I win David’s book so I can meet him for coffee and toast!
So many places I’d love to eat my way through. I’d start with NYC, for now. When I have more vacation/leisure time, I would love to explore Spain. And I know my husband is chomping at the bit to get to Belgium, for the beer.
Wendy Read says
Greece, Greece and more Greece 🙂
Spain, Italy and France… I can’t decide!!!
Laura Tabacca says
India–except I am desperately afraid I would get sick. Also, despite having been to Mexico, I cannot say I have properly eaten my way through it so that is up there too. Also Vietnam makes the list. And Cambodia. Mmmmm yummy culinary vacation daydreams….
Great list! One of my favorite things about Charcuteria was some of the unexpected nonmeat recipes!
I would love to cook through this book!
I’d love to eat my way through Okinawa, Japan!
New Zealand: many vineyards with a lot of ethnic cuisines represented.
Keri Hardwick says
Really hard to choose! I’ll throw one out that hasn’t been mentioned yet (though I agree with all the previous suggestions too!) – Chicago.
What a great giveaway! I would choose India, hands down, as the country I most want to eat my way through. And lucky for me, India is huge enough that it would take months and months of delicious dinners to do so. 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!
I would definitely eat my way through Paris!
Hmmm…I’d have to say Israel. I’ve lived in Spain twice, French Canada twice, and Japan for six months, took cooking classes abroad (including Paris and Japan) and have more than 300 cookbooks, but Israel’s cuisine has always captured my imagination with its wide blend of immigrant cuisines from the Diaspora. Would love to take some hands-on cooking classes there and visit the local markets!
lori reilly says
Italy…is on my bucket list. I want to eat and drink my way thru the Italian countryside.

Italy and Greece are the next places I’d like to visit – love both cuisines!
The Azores! Sao Miguel specifically. YUM!!!!
Linda K. says

carolien bell says
One cookbook I still need is one that focuses on French food!
What a wonderful job you have! Do you have a favorite on making sausages? That is something I’d like to try. I mainly bake, but love to try new things.
i’d love to visit Italy!
Laura @MotherWouldKnow says
Wonderful reviews. I would love to eat my way through China – having recently learned to stir-fry with Grace Young, I am amazed at how versatile that cooking technique is and I’d love to learn – and eat – more Chinese cuisine.
It would definitely be Paris, but there are so many others I’d also love. Madrid? Athens? Rome?
Italy from the top all the way to the toe of the boot!
Lisa * says
Picking just one city I would say Paris…but then would want to eat through the regions all the way to Nice!
Italy! I’m pretty sure it would take me years to do so adequately, but I’m up for the challenge! Yum……
Allison Day says
There are oh so many places… but currently the top two places Son and I want to visit (that we haven’t been to yet) are South Korea and Singapore. They both sound like such fantastic food cities! 😀
Jessica Lothrop says
I like cookbooks and I cannot lie!

Susanne Hindle Kher says
Can’t believe you haven’t been to Paris! I’m choosing Lebanon, a country I have yet to visit, for my choice of a country to eat my way through.
jenny hartinht says
Sue McClure says
Need, love bread. Would love to go anywhere in Germany to eat bread!
Sarah Antico says
PARIS all the way, you know that’s really why they call it the city of love. So foodies like us can wander the cobbled stone streets, stumbling across Parisian delights and delicacies and falling in love with French food over and over and over again. Now that is a love story!
Lyn M. says
Love your reviews! Love the cookbooks!
Marisa Franca @ All Our Way says
Please tell me that the books are stained from use! I have had David Lebovitz books on my Amazon wish list for a long time. I am a student trying to learn from you and David what it takes to make a great blog and raconteur. I read cookbooks like novels. I savor and study and the books become friends. I can imagine how difficult it is to part with them and I am pea green with envy over your Macbook Air.
Renee Gershman says
I have been a lot of places, but I would like to EAT PRAY LOVE, and do a tour of the three countries of Italy, India, and Thailand. These are the three places I have never been 🙂
Beth Wang says
It’s hard to choose just one, but I think the top of my list would be Hong Kong

Jeanne The Baker says
I LOVE David Lebovitz and I so, so, so want this book!
To answer the question…there are two vying for first…one is San Sebastian Spain and sharing one is the entire Emilia Romagna region of Italy and coming in a close second it Tokyo.
I would like to eat my way and gather inspiration along the US. eastern coast from Maine to Florida and then head to the west coast top to bottom. I love road trips ! Your posts and recipes are so much fun. Thank you
Take me to Italy! I could eat and drink my way through every city!
Arlene Silikovitz says
I would love to eat my way through Paris! I have wanted to go there for a long time but I haven’t gotten there yet.
I’ve been to Paris and Jerusalem, but the only way I’ll get back to either any time soon is to re-create their local color in my kitchen.
My Paris Life is on my wish list & I wish I would win it !!! And I could so eat my way through Paris.

Debbie D says
How about the US first? Would start with San Fran and then the Napa area. Then I would go to Italy and then Sicily. YUM!
I would love to go to Japan and try authenticate Japanese food in the country-side. In addition, I would like to go to Jiro’s Sushi Restaurant.
kimberly w. says
Japan would be at the top of my list. Fresh fish along with Michelin star rated restaurants – I would love it.
Amy Bui says
I always wanted to eat my way through Paris. I was there as a poor student so I could only afford the pastries from the grocery stores and would spend hours just looking at the pastries at the little shops from outside the store window. I would love to go back with a bit of cash and eat EVERYTHING with extra butter!
We’re planning a honeymoon in Switzerland – watch out chocolate and cheese…here I come!
Kelly Payton says
I would love to visit, live ,travel or belong in Paris. My dream is everlasting but David Lebovitz’s My Paris Kitchen would do very nicely as a starter book. I also want to go everywhere else Hawaii, Italy etc.. Awesome giveaway!
Italy, Greece, France – in that order.
A personal tour of Paris from David Lebovitz would be a dream come true, but since I could never afford the places he would recommend, creating those kinds of dishes in my own home is the next best option. I’ve been wanting this cook book for a long time, and it would be so exciting to win a copy. Thank you for the opportunity.
I’m a bread & dessert gal, so I would love
to do a pastry sampling tour in Paris. In the
meanwhile I would love to win a copy of David’s
cookbook and bake something yummy, dreaming
of living in Paris.

Kimberly C. says

barbara n says
I would love to visit and eat my way through Germany….yum beer and brats!
I am in love with David Leibovitz’s cooking and would cherish that book!
The current issue of Saveur has me salivating for India. Having been in Spain and Japan and viewed countless cookbooks, I would would welcome the opportunity to go back and eat my way through those two countries. Also, my hometown of Lagos, Nigeria goes unnoticed for its culinary dishes that I love so much and I would happily go back to eat my way through there!
Karen Wilger says
I loooove David Lebovitz’s writing! I can’t believe I don’t own this one yet.
My dream vacation is to go on one of David’s chocolate and cheese tours in Paris and Switzeland. I hope I can someday cross this offh bucket list.
I don’t think I could pick just one city but I would absolutely love to eat my way across Spain. My father’s family is from there originally and I’d love to tour the coastal regions, basque country, so many cultures and cuisines!
Kyoto is at the top of a very long list. I wouldn’t turn down Paris but I was fortunate enough to live in Germany for seven years so I’ve been to Paris and a fair amount of the rest of Europe. I’ve never been able to set foot in Japan, the closest was sitting in the plane on the runway in Tokyo to and from Hong Kong.
Marie Nicoletti says
Hi! I am from Paris so I would LOVE to eat my way through the United States!
I couldn’t possible pick a single country, but my Irish roots always lead me back to her beautiful emerald hills…a pint of Guinnnesss, a piping hot Shepherd’s Pie…Heaven!

I agree. It would have to be Paris!
Lori Flesher says
Paris of course! And use David’s Paris Pastry app to explore all the best pastry shops!
I love Lebovitz’s book & borrowed it recently from our public library – the photography! I’m a photographer and fell in love with all the shots. I intend to visit Rome on my first ever solo international trip in a couple of years and cannot wait to sample ALL the pasta and gelato! I’m looking forward to seeing the next 20 books!

I’m a huge fan of David’s as well. I own several of his books and keep them on a shelf with my favorites! I love so many cuisines, it’s hard to choose one country, but if push came to shove, I’d have to say, Italy. I’d probably gain twenty pounds doing it…but it would be so worth it!
Japan and the french influence on young Japanese chefs.

After eating my way through Italy a swing by Paris sounds like a deal.
Princellar Bland says
Outside of Paris, the city I would love to spend my day sampling the local food would have to be New York, the place has everything….I could stay a month there and not eat everything on my bucket list.

There’s no place like home and my Serbian mama’s kitchen is always a good idea.I warmly recommend Serbian food, it’s amazing! That doesn’t mean I don’t like to travel and always explore local foods.
I’d love to eat my way through Italy. I’ve been a few times and always come back wanted to learn how to cook more Italian dishes. However, I’d love David’s book if only to read about his take on Paris and French food. Thanks.
I want to eat my way through Bhutan! My grandmother went there in the 1950s and I’ve always wanted to follow in her footsteps.

I’d love to visit and eat through Thailand! Chiang Mai would be my first stop!
I would love to go back to Paris, and eat my way through that wonderful city…yum!
stuart itter says
For my soul, Italy continues to be a magical place: so many insights into brilliant, simple meals. For my brain, I favor Turkey , which I have not visited: so many ways to eat imaginative meals and dishes,

Viet Nam – I have been to Hong Kong and I love Japan – but I think I need to check out Viet Nam. I have a feeling the street food scene is truly great!
Definitely Paris. All that pastry, so little time!
How can I pick just one city to eat through???? OK–it may sound too ordinary but I’m really dying for a chance to go to LA to eat. Especially because of all I hear about the food truck scene. Also because I follow The Amateur Gourmet and his stories about eating around LA make my saliva run.
I would love to eat my way around Spain during the winter holidays.
I’m obsessed with eating me way through New Orleans someday soon!

Greece, Turkey, Italy, Spain….basically the entire Mediterranean :o)
I would love to eat my way through Italy. Never been and want to go soon!

I would love to visit and eat my way through Morocco.
My pick would be to eat my way through either Italy or Mexico! Such great food in both countries. 🙂
