Cookbooks are as much a part of us as our favorite chef’s knife: They stay with us, from kitchen to kitchen, from house to house; we rely on them daily, we read them nightly. We let them take over our site for two months each winter. We trade them like baseball cards, lend them like a cup of sugar. 

We like to make them, too. First came The Food52 Cookbook Volume 1, then Volume 2, and now, 2 years after our last, we’re back at it -- with a new imprint and plans for more books that are beautiful, useful, and above all, will help us all become better cooks together. 

And so, we’d like to introduce you to Food52 Works: Our new joint cookbook imprint with Ten Speed Press. 

Our inaugural title? Genius Recipes: 100 Recipes That Will Change the Way You Cook by our very own Kristen Miglore. Because, it seemed to us, the very best place to start is with the smartest recipes we know.

From there, we’ll work side-by-side with the lovely editors of Ten Speed on a series of single-subject  books in which we hope to share recipes and cooking expertise from the Food52 team and our community alike. First up: baking and vegan cooking. 

We’re grateful to have such natural imprint partners in Ten Speed, and such a wonderfully supportive community as we enter into this next chapter. And we value your input: If there are cookbooks you’d love to see from us, let us know in the comments! We’ll be reading.

I have about 53 linear shelf feet of cookbooks. From these, I leaned an important lesson– never buy a cookbook with fewer than 1,000 recipes. Here are the only cookbooks you should buy:

“I Know How to Cook” (French)
“The Silver Spoon” (Italian)
“1,000 Chinese Recipes”
“1,080 Recipes" (Spanish)
“James Beard’s American Cookery”
“The Joy of Cooking”
A & O Hess’ Austrian Cookbook

Will these be recipes devised by Kristen, as opposed to the column which is a compilation of other's recipes.

Congratulations! Ten Speed has always impressed me as a fine publishing house; what a good fit. Who will be spearheading the editorial team for the future books? I have a novel idea that I'd prefer not to share with the entire world, lest someone else take the idea and run with it. ;o)
