Product Details


“For decades, Bonnie has inspired confidence in home cooks to try a new dish or technique, and now with her daughter, Anna, that sense of warmth and comfort is doubled. The wait is over for this new delectable and trustworthy recipe collection, and your only worry will be which recipe to try first.”
—ANNA OLSON, chef and author 
Don’t Worry, Just Cook radiates warmth from every recipe. The strong connection between Bonnie and her daughter, Anna, imbues the pages. This beautiful cookbook offers more than just delicious, easy-to-execute recipes—it reveals Bonnie’s myriad culinary experiences, coupled with the refinement of Anna’s perspective of her mother’s creations.”
—RENÉ REDZEPI, chef and co-owner of Noma 
“Home cooking is all about sharing food and recipes, and passing down the love of food from one generation to another. And there’s no better way to do this than in Bonnie and Anna’s fantastic selection of irresistible and colorful dishes.”
—SAMI TAMIMI, chef and award-winning author 

“Funny, insightful, and packed with irresistible recipes, Don’t Worry, Just Cook is exactly what we need in our lives right now. This gorgeous, delicious work is so much more than a cookbook. It’s a manifesto on food, family, friends, and love, all played out in Bonnie and Anna’s kitchen. As someone who has had the frequent privilege of sharing a table with these two and devouring a meal they’ve cooked, I can confidently say that you will want to make every single thing in these beautiful pages. Throughout her long and illustrious career, Bonnie has been a trusted, wise voice, imparting expert, accessible cooking knowledge to legions of home cooks (and now their children and grandchildren), hungry to recreate what comes so naturally to her. Now, by partnering with her equally talented number-one student, we are granted priceless access to the envy-inducing culinary osmosis that only this mother-daughter duo can create.”
—ADEENA SUSSMAN, author of Sababa: Fresh, Sunny Flavors From My Israeli Kitchen  
“Bonnie and Anna’s new book is irresistible. It is partly the exquisite, colorfully-photographed recipes themselves, like Jeweled Roasted Salmon with Herbs, but it is also that mother and daughter are there, at your elbow, to give you any help you might possibly want—what brand of tomato paste to use, how many minutes you should blend the hummus for until it is really silky, and recipe substitutes if you’re vegan. I think I am going to start with their Delicious Chicken Patties.”
—MADHUR JAFFREY, actor and author 
“A book of recipes of love and food and family, with the sweetest of people cooking the most delicious of foods. Feels like home to me. ‘Don’t worry’ indeed, just make these glorious recipes and eat with your heart.”
—ANTHONY ROSE, chef and author of The Last Schmaltz: A Very Serious Cookbook
“Cooking, like life, in the age of social media is riddled with anxiety and FOMO. Everything, everyone looks too perfect. Ordinarily pleasurable things like making dinner for your family or inviting friends over for brunch can seem too intimidating to consider. Put down your phone! Bonnie and Anna show you there’s no reason to worry about making delicious food. With a collection of inspired recipes that tap into trends in flavor and global cuisines, they’ve created a manual for cooking and eating well perfectly tuned to our tastes today. Every recipe, every photo, every page makes me want to get in the kitchen and cook.”
—MITCHELL DAVIS, author and food strategist @kitchensense 
“Useful, well-organized, and creative but approachable recipes with gorgeous photography to match. A welcome addition to anyone’s cookbook collection.”
—JACQUES PÉPIN, chef, author, and educator
