Clarkson Potter Aug. 2022. 224p. ISBN 9780593234815. $28. COOKING
Noyes returns after Red Truck Bakery Cookbook: Gold-Standard Recipes from America’s Favorite Rural Bakery with this second Red Truck Bakery offering. It includes fan-favorite recipes omitted from the previous title, along with what are sure to be new crowd-pleasers. Breads, breakfasts, and desserts are well covered of course, but Noyes also expands into lunch, dinner, soups/stews, and sides, making this an exciting collection for any cook. The flavors are Southern, with updated techniques resulting in approachable, well-developed, and delicious recipes using easily sourced ingredients (get your buttermilk ready). The Beetloaf Sandwich, a unique vegetarian spin on a cherished comfort food, especially hits the mark. The book’s clear design and instructions are enhanced by photos of dishes and the Virginia countryside where the bakery is located.
VERDICT This new selection from an award-winning bakery is recommended for all public libraries.
