Two of our favorite contributors have just published first-time solo cookbooks.
Samantha Seneviratne not only contributes regularly to Fine Cooking, but she also used to work here as a food stylist. Her book, The New Sugar & Spice (Ten Speed Press; $27.50), literally spices up dessert with additions like caraway seeds in apple danish. Chapters about cinnamon and vanilla promise more conventionally flavored sweets as well. Gorgeous photos of Sam’s inspired creations round out the package.
Also don’t miss Raquel Pelzel’s new book, Toast: The Cookbook (Phaidon; $24.95).
