We took a sneak peek at some of the books coming to Cooked in 2016 and it made us pretty damn hungry...

Salads + other classics from the little deli that grew

Food-loving Melburnians will delight in the sight of this new release and for the rest of Australia and beyond, this is your chance to get a taste of the much-loved food store, delicatessen and eatery, Alimentari, at home. Alimentari means 'good food', which is what you’ll get at the welcoming cafes in Collingwood and Fitzroy, and as a result of cooking the dishes in this book. The recipes capture the essence of a neighbourhood deli that for many has felt like home – this is comforting, flavourful food that's made to be shared. Think hangover-zapping meatball wraps, fresh-baked pies and piadinas, the kind of salads that keep you coming back for more, and decadent sides to your espresso, such as chocolate fondant muffins, custard-filled bombolinis and peanut-butter brownies.

This book has just landed on Cooked! Flip through its recipes here.

Milk. Made.
A book about cheese

The sweet simplicity of a good hunk of cheese is one of life’s small joys and that’s celebrated here in Milk Made. With more than 75 mouth-watering recipes for those who just want to eat it, and an in-depth look at all of its forms for those who want to learn more, this is the ultimate cheese-lover’s handbook. Brought to you by the man behind Bruny Island Cheese Co, Nick Haddow, who has dedicated nearly 30 years to his art, this book will take you around the globe in pursuit of cheese’s pleasures. From rustic fig, Brie and rosemary tarts, to delicate ricotta gnudi and a wicked honey whisky cheesecake, browsing these recipes is guaranteed to make your stomach rumble.

Nourish Bowls
Balanced meals in a bowl

Following the cheese, pastries and sauce-laden savouries of winter, the arrival of Nourish Bowls to Cooked is right on time. Freshen up for the warmer months with these rainbow-coloured creations, fitting all of your five-a-day into one Insta-worthy dish. Providing 60 original recipes, plus a breakdown of the key components needed to design your own, this book is divided up into ‘Breakfast Bowls’, ‘Light Bowls’ and ‘Full Bowls’, allowing you to put your plates away and enjoy these all-in-one meals at anytime of the day.

180 recipes through the seasons

In keeping with the spring-clean theme, Harvest offers a guide to produce at its best with recipes broken down by the seasons. Featuring the beautiful photography and watercolour illustrations of Emilie Guelpa, this is a great starting point for home cooks that want to buy fresh and local and think about eating seasonally. The recipes in this stunning book take an ‘elegance in simplicity’ approach that allows the produce to take centre stage. Think chestnut risotto with sage and pancetta, lemon olive oil cake with raspberry curd, and seared tuna with fennel confit.

Lamingtons & Lemon Tarts
Best-ever cakes, desserts and treats from a modern sweets maestro

In Lamingtons & Lemon Tarts, master of patisserie and all-round nice guy Darren Purchese provides a simpler approach to the treats found in his Melbourne-based sweets studio, Burch & Purchese. For those not familiar with Darren’s work, his store is something of a science lab for sugar and uses tricky techniques such as aerating, spraying and glazing to achieve desserts such as deconstructed lamingtons, gold-brushed chocolate bars, and cutesy bear-faced lollipops. Here, he looks to the classics; providing home cooks innovative yet achievable takes on mousses, meringues and chocolate rubble, among many. A must for keen bakers and sweet-tooths up for a challenge.

Smith & Daughters
Tasty meals without the meat

Another gem from Melbourne's northern suburbs, the Smith & Daughters crew imagine the unimaginable with meat-free food. A Spanish and Mexican-inspired take on vegan cuisine, anyone who has dined at the restaurant will understand that these guys challenge the idea that vegetarian food is bland. A meal in the fun Brunswick Street space might include such dishes as tuna and pea croquettes, spicy tortilla soup and smoky barbecue ribs (that’s right – all sans meat). And now, plant-eaters rejoice, you can recreate the flavour-packed dishes on show at Smith & Daughters at home, with nearly 90 recipes including their famous breakfast burrito, cinnamon doughnuts stuffed with custard, and out-of-this world guacamole, salsa and chips.

These are just a few of the new releases on the way. Check back soon for more all-new recipes in our collection of complete cookbooks.
