Wicked Good Burgers

By Andy Husbands, Chris Hart, and Andrea Pyenson

Tremont 647 toque Andy Husbands and his barbecue-championship teammate, Chris Hart, follow up on their first cookbook, Wicked Good Barbecue, with a tome devoted solely to the burger. These are anything but tame patty-on-bun combinations: wrapped in tortillas, smothered in pastrami, and fashioned into banh mi sandwiches.

The Chefs Collaborative Cookbook

By Chefs Collaborative and Ellen Jackson

Michael Leviton, of the local restaurants Lumière and Area Four, is the chair of this sustainability-minded national-chef organization’s board of overseers. Its cookbook is just as packed with local talent, with contributions from Hungry Mother’s Barry Maiden, Taranta’s Jose Duarte, and Henrietta’s Table’s Peter Davis.
