Book Deals: Bloggers Molly Yeh and Meike Peters

Look forward to 'Molly on the Range' and 'Eat In My Kitchen' next year.


Here are your Thursday afternoon book deals. Molly Yeh, whose blog My Name Is Yeh was a finalist for Saveur's best food blog award last year, has landed a deal with Rodale to publish her first book, titled Molly on the Range. A millennial's Pioneer Woman, Yeh's book is described as a collection of "stories and recipes that will draw on her Chinese and Jewish heritage, her travels abroad, and her new chosen life on a farm in the far reaches of the upper Midwest, near Grand Forks, North Dakota, with her husband, a fifth-generation Norwegian-American sugar beet farmer." Recipes will reach across cultures. Think: scallion sesame challah, Chinese hotdish, quinoa carbonara, sweet potato lefse, marzipan mandel bread, and rosemary funfetti cakes. The photography will likely be as gorgeous in book as it is on Yeh's blog. A publish date has not yet been set.

Meike Peters has crafted colorful, "produce-driven recipes" on her blog Eat In My Kitchen since November 2013. The Berlin-based writer will now translate these recipes and stories into a book. Prestel has acquired the exclusive rights to publish Eat In My Kitchen, a collection of "100 seasonal, and mainly new, recipes, as well as classics from the blog, like mountain buns with coriander and aniseed, Maltese pasta with lemon zest and ricotta, and rhubarb crumble cake." Peters' style is described as comfort food with a "Mediterranean palate." Eat My Kitchen is one of Saveur magazine's Sites We Love and was a finalist for The Kitchn's Best Daily Read Cooking Blog Award. The book will be released in the fall of 2016.
