Cookbooks: Winter Favorites!

Any of you who have wandered around Shake knows how much we love to cook (and eat!) so, of course,  we wanted to share some of our new favorite cookbooks with you! From “clean” eating to global tastes, here are our top picks:

MYERS + CHANG at HOME…all the deliciousness from local stars Joanne Chang and Karen Akunowicz from their must-try restaurant in the South End. This book is especially close to my heart because I was one of their team of at-home recipe testers, trying the recipes, giving feedback etc…while the book was in production!

AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 COCKTAILS…continuing on the global tasting trail, this one is for the traveling, experimenting home bartender, blending new flavors from around the world!

BOWLS is a big staff favorite because it’s filled with easy to follow  combinations of grains, veggies and protein, with each component individually seasoned!  Delicious delicious and delicious!

GOOD CLEAN EATS is filled with healthy recipes written by a health coach specializing in Integrative Nutrition. Perfect for winter detoxing…

Lastly..WHOLE 30.. Not the prettiest book ever but seriously one of my favorites…great recipe ideas if you are either doing the strict “Whole 30” diet regimen or are just looking for high protein, low sugar, low carb    flavorful meals!
