"To live a year in Meike Peters’s life! In 365, Ms. Peters, who won a James Beard award for her 2016 book, Eat in My Kitchen, offers a meal for every night from January to December. The recipes are largely European in focus (Ms. Peters lives in Berlin and Malta), skew seasonal and, rare for a cookbook, tend to serve two. There’s some repetition, but isn’t that real life, where sometimes you’re eating alone, or making variations on a favorite dish? Weekends are earmarked for more time-consuming recipes: cakes and tarts, cookies and jam. Dinner, they’re not. But sustenance for the week ahead? Definitely."
