Not for the first time, I’m a little behind on my New Year’s resolutions. But here I am, about to get started on the main one: Cook more at home.
And so, with help from my F&W co-workers, I’ve compiled a list of some excellent new cookbooks out this spring that will help me make everything from Black Pepper Biscuits to a gorgeous appetizer titled El Bulli’s Water Lilies that’s got more than 50 steps, as well as a perfect Negroni, which, of course, I’ll need after I try, and fail, to make that water lily dish.
