Your Cart is Empty

Hidden away on the first floor of an old brownstone in the West Village, is a tiny front room shop with an absolute treasure trove of cookbooks. Bonnie Slotnick has stocked her shelves with hundreds of rare, unique, and specialty cookbooks.

Bonnie Slotnicks Cookbook StoreIt was here that I found a 1957 edition of  Meta Given’s Modern Encyclopedia of Cooking , the same book I had used to make my first loaf of bread one summer back in the early seventies. I also bought a copy of the new classic  Milk  by Anne Mendelson.

To my surprise, I also discovered  Dairy Foods Cookbook , from 1980 by Annie Proulx of Brokeback Mountain  fame. It turns out she was quite the butter, cheese and yogurt expert before she went on to tell us the tragic story of Ennis Del Mar and Jack Twist.

Bonnie also sells carefully selected vintage cookware and accessories. If you are in the neighborhood of Waverly Place, this is definitely worth a stop. You will be delighted.

Between his charisma, fascinating stories of the rich and famous, and delicious food, it’s easy to see why.

Truffle Butter

by Jojo Frey December 04, 2017

Truffle butter is a great way to preserve the aroma of truffles. Chefs recommend using truffle within five days or so. Aside from freezing it, making truffle butter is a good method to preserve the flavor. But, let’s be real… ain't no way truffle butter will last more than a few days in anyone’s fridge!!
