Five new cookbooks worth a look

We frequently feature local authors and notable new food books, but the stacks of new cookbooks from publishers and library lists keep piling up faster than we can shelve them. Here are five top picks from recent releases:

River Cottage Veg by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall ($35, Ten Speed Press): Some of the River Cottage cookbooks are classics, some left us cold. The latest, an all-vegetarian collection, is a credit to the series. Fearnley-Whittingsall may be best known for his carnivorous cooking, but he’s just as inspired on the vegetarian side, coming up with fresh ideas that have been brightening up our weeknight dinners. Favorite recipes so far are an easy roasted root vegetable frittata, a spicy carrot-chickpea salad in homemade pita bread, and a zingy cold “herby, peanutty, noodly salad.” I had been in a rut for a while of cooking the same old dinner recipes, but every time I page through this book, I get excited about planning our next meal.
