“Ms. Peters, a blogger who lives in Berlin, draws on a mix of German and Mediterranean influences. That includes Malta, where she has family, inspiring the addition of orange peel in a bittersweet chocolate Bundt cake and blood oranges in a steaming bowl of mussels. Her sandwiches … including one made with roasted cherry tomatoes and garlic: easy for lunch, suitable for hors d’oeuvres on little toast rounds, and alluring when assembled on long ciabatta breads for a party.”
 The New York Times
(‘Best Cookbooks of Fall 2016’)

“Food blogger Meike Peters’s premiere cookbook celebrates the seasons with 100 tasty recipes that celebrate fresh, seasonal dishes. It’s worth the purchase even if just for her exquisite food photography …”

“Eat in My Kitchen,” by Berlin blogger Meike Peters, provides home entertaining tips as well as fastidiously written recipes that make everything from Maltese pastry to pork shoulder roasted in Bavarian beer seem breezily attainable. While Eat In My Kitchen is not purely vegetarian, Peters provides a wealth of everyday plant-centric menus in which meat is an accent, not the centerpiece.”
 USA Today
(‘The 16 Best Food and Beverage Books of 2016’)

“The winner of the 2017 James Beard Award for food writing, Eat in My Kitchen grew out of Meike Peters’ recipe blog of the same name. Peters, who is German, has a Maltese boyfriend, which helps to explain the strong pan-European flavour present in both the blog and the book. Sauteed Belgian endive wrapped in prosciutto di Parma is one such recipe … The New York Times recommends the delicious cod in parchment with wild leeks and red onions.”
–  The Week UK
(‘The Best Cookbooks of 2017’)

“Sometimes a single recipe can encapsulate an entire cookbook. Eat in My Kitchen is filled with bold ideas reflecting Meike’s unbound imagination. The recipes here are most definitely NOT 1-2-3 simple. You can easily accomplish any of them, but you are going to need some time. The dishes are delightful because of their complexity: multiple ingredients unexpectedly combined into layers you’ve never, never seen before;”
― Brian O’Rourke, The Huffington Post

“This collection of 100 dishes is a must-read for anyone looking for a cooking lesson with inimitable charm.”
– Food Republic

“Eat in my kitchen is a wonderful selection of recipes, bursting with colour, beauty and flavour. Each page offers a new temptation.” 
– Sami Tamimi, head chef, Ottolenghi restaurants, co-author of Ottolenghi: The Cookbook and Jerusalem

“Peters excels at making simple recipes special, often with a dash of spice or a drizzle of dressing. A gorgeous cookbook to carry readers through all four seasons.”
– Library Journal

“Great food like great art speaks the truth. Meike’s recipes and photos are pared down, honest and revealing – I love what she does! She goes right for the sensory jugular leaving you wanting and needing more. Void of superfluous detail, Meike’s all about delicious food – brava!”
– Cynthia Barcomi, pastry chef, founder of Barcomi’s, and author of six cookbooks

“Eat In My Kitchen is an incredibly beautiful book. I’ve made several recipes from Meike’s book – the Pasta with Orange Butter, the Potato and Sauerkraut Latkes and the Bavarian Pork Roast – all incredibly delicious. The photographs are gorgeous in this title, taken by the author herself, and the recipes truly are crave-worthy. This will be a well-used tool in my kitchen for years and I’m hoping for much more from this talented writer.”

“Blogger Meike Peters is a fan of all things in moderation, and her debut book strikes a balance between healthy and indulgent. Try Mediterranean-inspired spiced salmon or feta, artichoke and zucchini casserole―then finish with chocolate-olive oil cake.”
― SELF Magazine

“Meike Peters’ new cookbook Eat in My Kitchen has our food-loving hearts beating fast and crushing hard.”
― Honest Cooking

“I was totally blown away by the recipes and Meike’s photography – a true labor of love. Eat in My Kitchen is glorious – it engaged me from the first line “My food is in my hands” and kept me interested until the last chapter.”
― Jenny Hartin, Sunday Supper

“What I love most about this [cinnamon apple crumb] cake is that while some fruit cakes can be on the dry side, this cake is anything but. It’s moist, buttery, and almost even doughy in the center if you cook it for just under an hour…which I did…and it was perfection.”
— HalfBakedHarvest.com

“Blueberry, Buckwheat, and Hazelnut Muffins—Ground hazelnuts and nutty buckwheat replace wheat flour to turn this muffin recipe into a gluten-free treat. The warmth of cinnamon merged with sweet juicy berries creates the most tempting aroma from the oven . . . This sweet Tyrolean classic features buckwheat and hazelnut sponge cake sandwiched with a red jam filling. It’s so pleasing to enjoy while sitting next to a warm fire, watching snowflakes fall in front of the window.”
— ExtraCrispy.com

“Meike’s food combines the vibrant colors and flavors of her German home as well as her Maltese home-away-from-home. Her Pretzel Buns from the book are perfect examples. They are based on a German recipe, but use Maltese salt.”
— Design Sponge

“The lovely photos will make you want to cook and eat everything, too, from “Sauteed Endive with Balsamic Butter and Marjoram” to “Pumpkin Gnocchi with Roquefort Sauce” to “Riesling and Rhubarb Cake.”
— Food Gal

“The recipes feature simple, beautiful, tasty dishes that are sure to become favorites for any home cook.”
— National Examiner

“For all its historical influence, Berlin hasn’t borne much reputation as a gourmet capital. With her internationally admired food blog and now book of the same name, Peters may well change that. Although Peters’ cooking style has its foundation in German cuisine, she has spent much of her life in Mediterranean climes, so her cooking owes much to the influence of islands such as Malta and its neighbor, Gozo. Peters’ cooking liberally uses fresh ingredients, particularly herbs, which play a prominent role even in her cheese-stuffed meatloaf. She proudly promotes decidedly German dishes such as schnitzel, both of veal and pork. Oranges perfume many of her dishes, whether in a pork-roast crust, in salads, or in an uncommon spaghetti sauce with wild mushrooms. She pays homage to the lowly sandwich, which she elaborates with vegetarian options as well as meat-based versions. Color photographs help guide anyone wanting to reproduce Peters’ perceptive cooking.”
― Booklist

“A mouth-watering experience to browse through, and a culinary delight to plan menus with, Eat in My Kitchen is gladly recommended and certain to be an enduringly popular addition to personal, family, professional, and community library cookbook collections.”
― Library Bookwatch
