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.
The book came out October 24, 2017 in the U.S. and Canada and on December 7, 2017 in the U.K.

- Who wrote it? Who took the photos? Yours truly. 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.
- Can you tell me about the recipes? How many recipes are vegetarian? How much gluten, Deb? There are 115 recipes, 101 of which are new. There are 14 that originated on the site but are so loved, I thought the book would be bereft without them. 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.
- Can you sign a book for me? Thrilled to! The book tour is over and done, however, I have an ongoing arrangement with the great indie bookstore, Strand Books, where you can order a signed cookbook with a custom inscription right here. I stop in every coupld weeks to catch up on orders; let them know if your timeframe is more urgent.
The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook was released in October 2012 in the U.S. and Canada and in February 2013 in the UK and Australia. You should be able to buy it at your local bookstore of choice in the U.S. and Canada (and holler at us if you can’t find it and would like to) and in many stores in the UK and Australia, plus online, from a variety of booksellers.
