---About The Book---
Jessica Koslow and her restaurant, Sqirl, are at the forefront of the California cooking renaissance, which is all about food that surprises us and engages all of our senses—it looks good, tastes vibrant, and feels fortifying yet refreshing. In Everything I Want to Eat, Koslow shares 100 of her favorite recipes for health-conscious but delicious dishes, all of which always use real foods—no fake meat or fake sugar here—that also happen to be suitable for vegetarians, vegans, or whomever you’re sharing your meal with.
The book is organized into seven chapters, each featuring a collection of recipes centered on a key ingredient or theme. Expect to find recipes for dishes Sqirl has become known for, as well as brand-new seasonal flavor combinations, including:
- Raspberry and cardamom jam
- Sorrel-pesto rice bowl
- Burnt brioche toast with house ricotta and seasonal jam
- Lamb merguez, cranberry beans, roasted tomato, and yogurt cheese
- Valrhona chocolate fleur de sel cookies
- Almond hazelnut milk
"Jessica Koslow’s cooking is always in tune with the seasons and I admire her approach to food that is pure and beautiful. Everything I Want to Eat is a delightful cookbook that truly lives up to its title!"
"I love Jessica, I love Sqirl, and I love this book."
"Don't let the cuteness of Sqirl fool you. It's smart and insanely delicious. I never understood why white people loved toast so much until I had theirs. But everything is genius and every ingredient has a purpose."
"Paraphrasing the philosopher Isaiah Berlin, I once called Jessica Koslow a hedgehog, which is to say a thinker who knew One Big Thing. In her case, the One Big Thing was jam: Koslow was remarkably talented at capturing the nuances of fruit, sweetness and dust in a jar. Could I have been mistaken? Because at the moment, Koslow seems to embody nearly everything wonderful about Los Angeles cuisine."
(Jonathan Gold, food critic for the LA Times)
“In Everything I Want to Eat, Jessica Koslow opens the door to her world for the reader through the people, the product, the place and her stunning aesthetic on the plate. At Sqirl, while the rest of the world was shunning gluten, Jessica has made toast and jam modern, unctuous and feminine without being precious. Her grain bowls are brilliant and her treatment of the most perfect protein, the egg, reverent. I will cook from this book … and devour Jessica’s familiar yet witty food and words with a smile on my face. Everything you will want to eat is a self-fulfilling prophecy.”
(Anne Quatrano, chef and author of Summerland)
“In 2004 I lived on my friend's couch on Hoover just around the corner from where Sqirl would eventually exist. I had no interest in breakfast then, still don't. However, in the off chance I get to visit Los Angeles these days, I always go to Sqirl. And always eat breakfast. This book is a monster. And if I ever get the opportunity to write another cookbook, I will steal shamelessly from this one. Watch me.”
(Brooks Headley, chef and author of Fancy Desserts)
