The New York Times bestselling, IACP award-winning cookbook (and a* Cooking Light* Top 100 Cookbook of the Last 25 Years) from the celebrated food blogger and founder of
Look for Deb Perelman’s new book, Smitten Kitchen Every Day: Triumphant and Unfussy New Favorites, coming October 24, 2017.

Deb Perelman loves to cook. She isn’t a chef or a restaurant owner—she’s never even waitressed. Cooking in her tiny Manhattan kitchen was, at least at first, for special occasions—and, too often, an unnecessarily daunting venture. Deb found herself overwhelmed by the number of recipes available to her. Have you ever searched for the perfect birthday cake on Google? You’ll get more than three million results. Where do you start? What if you pick a recipe that’s downright bad?
With the same warmth, candor, and can-do spirit her award-winning blog, Smitten Kitchen, is known for, here Deb presents more than 100 recipes—almost entirely new, plus a few favorites from the site—that guarantee delicious results every time.
Gorgeously illustrated with hundreds of her beautiful color photographs, *The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook *is all about approachable, uncompromised home cooking. Here you’ll find better uses for your favorite vegetables: asparagus blanketing a pizza; ratatouille dressing up a sandwich; cauliflower masquerading as pesto. These are recipes you’ll bookmark and use so often they become your own, recipes you’ll slip to a friend who wants to impress her new in-laws, and recipes with simple ingredients that yield amazing results in a minimum amount of time.

Deb tells you her favorite summer cocktail; how to lose your fear of cooking for a crowd; and the essential items you need for your own kitchen. From salads and slaws that make perfect side dishes (or a full meal) to savory tarts and galettes; from Mushroom Bourguignon to Chocolate Hazelnut Crepe Cake, Deb knows just the thing for a Tuesday night, or your most special occasion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from one of my top 3 cook books! I use this great little cook book ALL THE TIME. Her recipes are spot on - the pie dough recipe is so exact, unlike martha stewart's which call for much less water than is actually needed. Fun, authentic, comfort food. Love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not my most-used cookbook I was a huge fan of the Smitten Kitchen blog. The cookbook is fine. Well-written recipes and great photos, but most of the recipes are underwhelming. I tried a bunch of them when I first got the book (a well hinted at Christmas gift) but seldom reach for it now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Cookbook! I loooooove Deb Perelman's food blog and her cookbook is amazing. I wish she would make another one. I have bought this book as gifts for my friends because I love this cookbook so much. The recipes are easy to follow (although not all of them are quick to make but the ones I have tried are very tasty). Each recipe uses simple ingredients. For each recipe, there are comments, personnel messages about the recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can't go wrong with this I've owned this cookbook for a year now. Although I've yet to try a lot of the recipes, the ones I have tried all turned out bang on! The instructions are easy to follow and not at all intimidating or complicated. I've made countless number of pizzas thanks to this cookbook. Highly recommended!
