Praise For 365: A Year of Everyday Cooking and Baking

One of The New York Times 13 Best Cookbooks of Fall 2019

"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." —Krysten Chambrot, The New York Times

"A fantastic collection of delicious and easy-to-make recipes.“ —Country & Town House Magazine 

"Peters' recipes are flavorsome, wholesome and deceptively simple.“ —Town & Country Magazine 


''Inspiration to get even the most jaded cook back in the kitchen.'' —Independent



"If you want to change how you cook—to learn new tricks—I heartily recommend 365. You may find some of her combinations challenging, but your everyday cooking will never be the same. Hey, life’s short; it’s time to try dates in your meatloaf!" —Christopher Kimball, Milk Street

"With a recipe for each day of the year, you’ll never run out of inspiration here. Running through the entire calendar year, beginning in January, 365 concentrates on seasonal availability… Her recipes have a unique European and Maltese spin, filled with vibrant color and flavor.“ 


"365 is filled with a year’s worth of recipes and stunning photography. Meike’s goal is to take the pressure off cooks and bakers with seasonal recipes that are approachable and provide variety.“ —Eat Your Books

"Every home cook faces the dilemma of trying to work out what to cook tonight. Thankfully, Meike Peters has made life a little more simple with her cookbook of 365 recipes for every day of the year. It's a genius idea, and not only that, but the book is packed with mouthwatering ideas that we can't wait to cook.“ —House & Garden Magazine

"The book offers tons of ideas and suggestions for quick, creative weeknight dinners; for colorful salads; for long-simmering weekend stews; and for delicious desserts.“ —Epicurus 

"After cooking from Peters’ 365 I’m reminded that everything about cooking—from being in the kitchen, choosing ingredients, consulting recipes, singing along to the radio — is all about enjoying… Peters’ reminds us that each and every day of the year is about celebrating mealtime.“ —Shipshape Eatworthy

"Her first book, Eat in My Kitchen, was a sensation. This volume is better and bigger.“ —Cooking by the Book

"Don’t be surprised if this roast butternut squash with feta and pistachios (recipe no. 302 in 365) steals everyone’s attention from everything else on the table. It’s hard not to be completely smitten with the sophisticated edge that a sprinkling of pistachios along with some baked feta and a drizzle of cumin oil lends these comfortingly familiar roast squash wedges.“ —Leite’s Culinaria
