A Peek Inside Five Brand New Brooklyn Cookbooks


A cookbook from a beloved restaurant offers two types of joy: it holds the promise of savoring your favorite dishes in your pajamas, and – once you read through the endless ingredient lists and pages upon pages of complicated cooking instructions – it reminds you how lucky you are that you generally don’t have to make these dishes yourself. This fall, five of Brooklyn’s most celebrated eateries –Pok Pok, Roberta’s, Mast Brothers Chocolate, 4 & 20 Blackbirds and Robicelli’s – are all publishing beautiful, gift-able cookbooks.

To help you determine which books are best tailored your kitchen shelf, we’re sharing a recipe from each, along with pictures of our homemade versions and notes on test-driving these recipes at home.
