Two new cookbooks are highly recommended picks for readers looking for something appetizingly different. John Whaite's Comfort: Food to Soothe the Soul (9781909487925, $29.99) gathers recipes designed to be comforting and hearty, rebelling against the Clean Eating trend and offering fare that satisfies the urge for comfort food. Some recipes have impacted the cook author's life and others represent his own creations to fit into the style and perception of comfort foods. Readers should expect innovative dishes not seen elsewhere, such as a Pea Soup with Parmesan Pretzel Crust or a slow-cooked Spiced Chicken in Milk. Full-page color photos accompany dishes such as Rhubarb & Ginger Jam Lamb Chops with Roasted Potatoes and Beets, adding visual appeal to the diverse taste treats offered. Rich Harris's Root & Leaf: Big, Bold Vegetarian Food (9780857834416, $19.99) provides dishes with international influences and flavors new even to vegetarian cooks with such dishes as Miso-Glazed Pumpkin, a 30-minute Butternut Squash Laska, or a savory version of the French apple tart in Fennel Tarte Fine, a savory dish of mascarpone cheese and fennel. The diversity and appeal of the dishes assures that this collection will provide a range of new ideas to vegetarian cooks seeking something uniquely different.
