    In their 2016 book, Koreatown, the chef Deuki Hong and the journalist Matt Rodbard delved into the food created by Korean Americans in the States. Now, almost a decade later, the duo has trained their lens on how Korean cuisine has evolved since then, both in the U.S. and in Korea itself. Koreaworld begins in Seoul, with recipes for dishes like cheesy corn dog on a stick and smoked giant short ribs, before traveling to other Korean locales like Jeolla-do and Jeju-do. Then the two come to stateside Koreatowns, where chefs are whipping up Korean chicken teriyaki, honey butter corn ribs, and Taco Bell bibimbap.

    Mauro Colagreco’s Michelin three-starred Mirazur has consistently been called one of the best restaurants in the world.

Mirazur: Under the Sign of the Moon encapsulates the chef’s focus on circular gastronomy, which is meant to be both better for us and for the planet. At Mirazur, Colagreco has created a landscape of gardens that follow the biodynamic lunar calendar, with more than 5,000 varieties of fruits and vegetables grown since 2006. The book walks us through the roots, leaves, flowers, and plants of Mirazur, before culminating in a lunar menu with dishes such as carrot, kumquat, and pork belly terrine and lamb millefeuille. The presentation of the plates makes this a stunning coffee-table book as well.
