We get dozens of cookbooks each week at SAVEUR, and every month we share our favorite new releases—books that, through one avenue of greatness or another, have earned a place on our over-stuffed shelves. July's best new releases include an intellectual exploration of perfecting the tipple, a French take on making the most of farmer's market finds, a fictional character's take on New Orleanian classics, and mouthwatering memories of the notorious Chicago Dog.
