Editorial Reviews


"Everything is made from scratch and with love, and readers should note these are not quick-fix recipes. Vegetarian chefs will find something appealing for special meals at home as well as entertaining." ― Library Journal

"The cakes and cookies are rich with butter and sugar, the soups and entrées hearty and flavorful enough to please any meat eater." ―Passport Magazine

"Offers 120 vegetarian recipes that are sure to please." ―K5 News

"A tasty new cookbook you'll definitely want to get your hands on." ―Instinct Magazine

"To know Husbands That Cook is to love Ryan Alvarez and Adam Merrin, the duo behind the joyful blog that delivers consistently excellent vegetarian recipes geared towards the home cook...Their eponymous first cookbook Husbands That Cook is a love story as told by food." ―Tasting Table

"Every recipe comes with a story―about their relationship, families, neighborhood and the small house with the big yard where they grow most of their food." ―Eagle Rock Boulevard Sentinel

“In a world dedicated to heteronormativity in every corner of domestic life, Husbands That Cook is a joyful celebration of love as food, making the act of coming together in the kitchen as radically powerful as it is delicious.” ―Lily Diamond, author of Kale & Caramel

"Filled with drool-worthy photos of everything you want to eat, Husbands The Cook did not disappoint with this epic collection of reimagined, creative vegetarian fare. Delicious, approachable and fresh, this book is teeming with not only gorgeous recipes but also Adam and Ryan's trademark warmth and charm. This is one book I will be reaching for often, not just for weeknight dinners but also when I want to impress friends and family with beautiful food." ―Rebecca Firth, author of The Cookie Book and creator of DisplacedHousewife

“Not only is this an amazing cookbook filled with flavors from all over the world, but it takes us into the kitchen with Adam and Ryan for a true glimpse into their life together. But to know me, you know I went directly to the baking recipes and dove in for some AMAZING sweet treats that will be made often in my kitchen! Oh, and cocktails too!” ―Brian Hart Hoffman, author of Bake from Scratch

“I love watching the adventures of Adam and Ryan on social media and am so delighted to finally have a cookbook to inspire me in the kitchen.” ―Teri Turner, author of No Crumbs Left

"Adam and Ryan make vegetarian recipes that are not only delicious but they'll satisfy any meat lover too!" ―Gaby Dalkin, author of What's Gaby Cooking

"I love this book! It is truly impossible not to love Adam and Ryan and Husbands that Cook. Between the giggle-worthy headnotes and wildly craveable recipes, this is a book that you will use again and again, and all the while feel as if you are cooking with two great friends." ―Molly Yeh, author of Molly on the Range and the star of Food Network's Girl Meets Farm

"Inspiring. Inviting. Inventive. From Pomegranate Moscow Mules and Margarita Caramels to Chickpea Cacciatore and Pad See Ew with Crispy Tofu, Husbands That Cook is filled with fresh and bright spins on global classics. Ryan and Adam’s food is exactly what I crave: bold-flavored, vegetable-based, crowd-pleasing, and simply delicious." ―Alexandra Stafford, author of Bread Toast Crumbs

"Adam & Ryan’s debut cookbook is buzzing with super sweet recipes and personal stories. With clear instructions they simplify showstopping food that just so happens to vegetarian!" ―Donal Skehan, author of Eat. Live. Go.

"Let's face it: there are a million cookbooks out there, and what makes a good book a great book is the ability to tell a tantalizing story through food. Ryan and Adam do just that. Husbands That Cook is bursting with creative, culturally inspired recipes that any home cook can make. Fancy some Date Night Risotto? Spiced Apple Blintzes? Or a handful of Margarita Caramels? The only dilemma you’ll come across (besides finding a way to hang out in their cool California kitchen) is choosing what recipe to make first. I'm headed straight for the tropical Island Breakfast Bowls…" ―Emilie Raffa, author of Artisan Sourdough Made Simple

"Reading Ryan and Adam's cookbook feels like you are sitting on their dining table listening to their beautiful stories and eating warm comforting food. Their food is achievable, very approachable and quite healthy too. Ryan and Adam and two of the sweetest people I know. Their love for food and stories is apparent in their book. What I adore is, they keep the stories so real and honest. I'm in love with this book." ―Asha Shivakumar, author of Masala & Meatballs

"I’m usually drawn to the dessert chapter first of any cookbook, but Adam and Ryan’s recipes have my mouth watering from breakfast through cocktail hour and beyond. Cooking with a loved one or entertaining a crowd? Husbands That Cook delivers fresh, inspired vegetarian recipes for literally every meal." ―Tessa Huff, author of Layered: Baking, Building and Styling Spectacular Cakes

"Ryan and Adam are great cooks, thoughtful recipe developers and amazing photographers. They have been a constant source of inspiration to me personally and to The Feedfeed Community for years. My favorite recipe in the book is the Spanish Tortilla which we were lucky enough to enjoy together at Ryan and Adam's home recently in LA! Ryan paired it with a glass of Basque white wine and instantly took me back to my summer in Valencia. Enjoy this book, their food, the recipes and their stories." ―Julie Resnick, co-founder, Feedfeed

"Ryan and Adam craftily marry their lifetime love of food and cooking in this creative tome of eclectic and innovative vegetarian recipes, from soup to nuts. You'll have fun cooking through this book, and reading their personal stories, cooking tips, and knowledge while you do. Prepare to be entertained and well-fed!" ―Sarah Phillips, CEO and founder of FoodEMedia

"I've been fans of Ryan and Adam for years and this book is a stunning representation of the love they have for food and each other. Each recipe has a story that intertwines with their relationship making for a culinary narrative that warms my often-cold heart." ―Jake Cohen, Food and Drinks editor, Time Out New York

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written with so many great recipes
By Sally H. on April 15, 2019
I’ve been following Husbands That Cook on their blog for awhile and when I heard they were coming out with a cookbook I pre-ordered it immediately. Since receiving the book, I have not been disappointed! First of all, the photography is incredible, and the friendly, welcoming personal stories and snippets make you feel like you’re already friends with these guys. And what a great variety of recipes, something to please everyone. The recipes are hearty, all of them totally doable whether you’re new to the kitchen or a cooking aficionado. I have A LOT of cookbooks and this one does the best job of giving clear and thorough instruction. Ryan and Adam will take you by the hand and make sure you don’t need to second guess how to do any step. We just made the Western “Bacon” Cheeseburger along with the Onion Rings, which were incredible. The vegan chocolate puddle cake is so good, so easy! My husband and son went through and bookmarked several other recipes to try; the calzones, vegetable lettuce wraps with peanut sauce, molten peanut butter chocolate cakes, and life changing cornbread, to name a few. I look forward to cooking, baking and eating my way through this cookbook.
