smitten kitchen every day: triumphant & unfussy new favorites

Five years in the making, my second cookbook is a celebration of triumphant and unfussy home cooking for food that I hope is the opposite of drudgery. It’s all of my new favorite things to cook, and I hope you’ll find many dishes worthy of your Repeat Forever files too.


U.S. Edition: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Books-a-Million | iBooks | Hudson Booksellers | IndieBound | Target | Walmart | Other U.S. Retailers

  • Who wrote it? Yours truly.
  • Who took the photos? Ditto. There’s a photo of each recipe and, because my current kitchen is no longer a dark, speckly box, I hope a feeling of lightness/vibrance, too.
  • How many recipes? 115 Recipes. 101 are new and there are 14 that originated on the site but are so loved, I thought the book would be bereft without them.
  • What’s inside? Chapters include Breakfast; Salads; Soups and Stews; Sandwiches, Tarts, and Flatbreads; Vegetable Mains; Meat Mains; Sweets: Cookies, Tarts and Pies, Cake, and Pudding and Frozen Things; and Appetizers, Snacks and Party Foods.
  • How many recipes are vegetarian? How much gluten, Deb? Excluding desserts, breakfast baked goods, breads, and drinks, 46 recipes are vegetarian, and 16 are vegan. 51 recipes are gluten-free and 37 are dairy-free. In the back of the book, there’s a guide for special diets that lists all of the above along with any ingredients to look out for as they may be problematic.
  • What does it look like? It’s a hardcover book with lay-flat binding. Deb, why are you so obsessed with book bindings? Because when you open a cookbook on a kitchen counter, it should stay open. Or things like this happen.
  • Do the recipes include weights? Absolutely. The recipes in the U.S. and Canadian editions have measurements in cups, spoons, and weights. The UK edition will skip the American measurements, of course.
  • When will it be released? October 24, 2017 in the U.S. and Canada; January 4, 2018 in the U.K.
  • Who will publish it? In the U.S., Knopf, an imprint at Penguin Random House, Inc. In Canada, Appetite, an imprint of Penguin Random House Canada. In the UK and Australia, Square Peg, an imprint of Penguin Random House UK.
  • Will there be a book tour? The last book tours were the most fun part about writing the book so unequivocally: Yes! We are making plans now so please let me know if there is a bookstore you love in your city.
  • I just read all of this and now I want a pony. I’m sorry, but we cannot legally or logistically distribute ponies, however, for the next two weeks (end date: May 30, 2017) if you preorder the book, send me an email (details are in this post) and I will be sending out a bonus recipe that we couldn’t make fit. Like, in the mail.

To come!
