This week, we’re reading about Manhattan standby Bonnie Slotnick Cookbooks, and new cookbooks from Arcadia Books, Flying Dog Brewery, and Amar'e Stoudemmire.

From the New York Times, a conversation with Bonnie Slotnick about her eponymous vintage cookbook shop in the West Village. “[H]er 350-square-foot shop, like a library in a remote mountain village, has an influence that belies its size.”

Pop Matters takes a good long look at Deborah Madison’s recently revamped The New Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, noting “Persnickety readers may quibble with recipe deletions, but individuals so staunchly wedded to specific preparations probably own the first edition, anyway.”

The Wisconsin State Journal has a story on From the Kitchen at Arcadia Books, a new cookbook from the local bookstore, which shares some of the “greatest hits” from its in-store kitchen.

Speaking of cookbooks coming from unexpected sources, Flying Dog Brewery is releasing The Dead Rise Old Bay Cookbook in honor of the 75th anniversary of Old Bay spice mix. Baltimore Magazine has the story.

“Who is 6-foot-11, worth an estimated $100 million, and loves cholent?” Tablet tries out Amar’e Stoudemire’s new cookbook and his recipe for braised barbecued short ribs.

And from the U.K., the Telegraph looks at The Bloomsbury Cookbook. “Jans Ondaatje Rolls gets to the heart of the [Bloomsbury] group by looking at what they put in their stomachs, and the result is a smorgasbord of 300 recipes, scores of beautifully reproduced pictures, and zillions of extracts from their letters, diaries, and various books which describe tastes, ingredients and the joys of a good feed.”
