It’s hard to find a food blog with more accolades than Deb Perelman’s Smitten Kitchen blog, which counts the New York Times, Martha Stewart, NPR, and Rachael Ray among its many admirers. Perelman’s philosophy is that there are no bad cooks, just bad recipes. In her new cookbook, she collects quality recipes that any cook can create at home without using complicated methods or expensive, difficult-to-find ingredients. The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook is packed with more than 100 new recipes, accompanied by the detailed instructions, engaging writing, and high-quality photography that have earned her blog so many avid followers. In conversation with Maureen Fitzgerald, food editor, the Philadelphia Inquirer.
