And so, inspired in part by the late Anthony Bourdain (still feels weird typing those words), I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole of French bistro food. A hearty bowl of beef bourguignon. A salad of frisée and lardons. Seared steak with a generous round of maitre d’hotel butter melting atop. Not only did I want to eat it, I wanted to cook it.

When I solicited Twitter for bistro cookbook recommendations, I shouldn’t have been surprised by the top suggestion.

The Takeout’s Kevin Pang spent a week cooking from Bourdain’s Les Halles Cookbook and writing about it. I am sad and hungry.


Once you consider the boatload of Pride and Prejudice retellings that have sprouted up in recent years, and the fact that even books that aren’t Austen-adjacent are still Austen-inspired, you’ll see that Jane Austen continues to influence our tastes and creative works today. I’ve picked out 13 fantastic, new rom-com novels for you to check out, but trust me—there are plenty of other books out there that Janeites, in particular, will love.

What the world needs now…
