Food lovers everywhere swear by the Smitten Kitchen blog, created by self-taught cook and photographer Deb Perelman.

Her blog features recipes that she cooks up in her tiny New York kitchen and every recipe we’ve ever tried has turned out exactly as we’ve hoped.  There have never been any disappointments – just incredibly delicious results.

The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook features recipes never before seen on her blog. Every dish uses down-to-earth ingredients, resulting in unique recipes that can easily be recreated, regardless of your level of expertise.

The book is written in the style of an old friend giving recipe advice so even if you’re not the most confident of cooks you will feel as though you are in good hands.

There are over 100 recipes so it’s hard to pick just a few favourites, but if pressed, some of our absolute favourites that were the Gooey Cinnamon Squares, Leek Fritters with Garlic and Lemon, and Harvest Roast Chicken with Grapes, Olives and Rosemary.

One of the best things about this cookbook is the breakfast section. Breakfast really is one of the most overlooked meals but with the help of the Smitten Kitchen, you’ll soon be flipping Peach and Sour Cream Pancakes with ease and dishing up a big batch of Huevos Rancheros on a Saturday morning.

This is a book to be enjoyed by food lovers everywhere.
