Since the publication of her first cookbook, the 2016 IACP Award–winning Molly on the Range, a lot has changed for Yeh. She launched her popular Food Network show Girl Meets Farm, renovated her farmhouse in Minnesota, and added a child to her family. Yeh says she wanted her latest cookbook to reflect her new appreciation of “building family traditions and celebrating the everyday.” Yet while some things have changed for Yeh, other things remain consistent in the kitchen—including the clever way she incorporates her Chinese and Jewish heritage into her cooking, and her ability to successfully mine her husband’s Scandinavian family roots and Upper-Midwest food sensibilities for culinary inspiration. Everything comes together perfectly in this delightfully written cookbook that offers clear and concise instructions for a tasty array of treats (ranging from doughnut matzo brie to classic tot hotdish) as well as a new window into Yeh’s life on her Minnesota farm, via entertaining asides.
VERDICT If patrons are not already a fan of Yeh’s cheerful culinary brand of pun-enriched and sprinkle-championing cooking, this charming paean to joys of farmhouse food and the bucolic life will win them over.
