We can’t wait for the new 2014 fall books.

Around our house we love books. Ink-on-paper type books. All kinds of catagories, all kinds of books. We love books.

And the books that really turn us on are books about food. Stories about food, cookbooks, if it’s about food, more than likely, we are into it.

And this time of year always seems to bring an avalanche of new releases.

We’ve been seeing some very interesting titles coming soon.

Here’s a list of some of the new 2014 fall books coming out we think are worth checking out. (in no particular order)

Mallman on Fire–Francis Mallmann and Peter Kaminsky, authors. Our friend Peter Kaminsky co-wrote this and Anthony Bourdain describes it as “elemental, fundamental, and delicious”. Meat and fire.

Jeff Scott’s Notes From a Kitchen explains the creative process that goes on in the kitchen. David Chang, Dominique Crenn, Joshua Skenes, John and Karen Shields are just some of the folks involved.

Bar Tartine in San Francisco has been delicious for a long time. Chef team Nick Balla and Cortney Burns have written Bar Tartine: Techniques and Recipes to help spread the deliciousness.

 Di Palo’s Guide to the Essential Foods of Italy: 100 Years of Wisdom and Stories from Behind the Counter Di Palo is a lower Manhattan institution. Can’t wait to read these stories.

Speaking of New York, Gabrielle Hamilton is the chef/owner of Prune and has written her first cookbook. Prune uses the elements of home cooking and elevates them in unexpected ways.

Here’s another first cookbook, this one by chef Sean Brock. Heritage highlights his food with essays in which he shares his admiration for the purveyors and ingredients he cherishes.

In My Portugal, George Mendes, chef and owner of Michelin-starred Aldea, introduces us to the world of Portuguese cuisine. Should be a tasty journey.

Nicolette Hahn Niman has penned Defending Beef, The Case for Sustainable Meat Production. She makes the case that, whatever the world’s future food system looks like, livestock can and must be part of the solution.

In New York one spells ‘meat’ ‘L-a-F-r-i-e-d-a’. Pat LaFrieda has written Meat: Everything You Need to Know. It’s not bragging when you can back it up–and LaFrieda can do just that.

A Good Food Day: Reboot Your Health with Food That Tastes Great. Marco Canora (Hearth) and Tammy Walker explain that instead of dieting, make simple, natural recipes fit for a food lover’s palate.

These are just ten extraordinary examples for 2014 fall books. There are many more books worth buying, reading and enjoying.

Let us know your favorites for this book season. Happy reading, cooking, and eating.
