Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

Here's a look at Chopped chopper and New York City chef Marc Murphy's debut cookbook. While Murphy has had a decades-long career in the restaurant industry, Season With Authority is explicitly about home cooking, though Murphy does tell his personal and professional cooking story in the introduction. The recipes veer traditional and familiar; chicken liver mousse, deviled eggs, broccoli and cheddar frittata, and a Nutella and peanut butter panini all are included. And perspective Chopped contestants should take note — Murphy has even included a recipe for perennial dessert basket favorite pain perdu. Have a look:
