While you wait for Orange Is the New Black Presents: The Cookbook (seriously, it’s coming out in October, as is In the Kitchen with Kris: A Kollection of Kardashian-Jenner Family Favorites), we offer up 20 great collections of modern grub. Most of these books have no Hollywood connection at all, just innovative and mouthwatering recipes.

Sweet Alchemy by Yigit Pura ($35, ChronicleBooks.com) is the gay sugar guru and winner of Bravo’s Top Chef: Just Desserts’ chance to bring his passion for sweets to the masses. San Francisco locals can visit his Tout Patisserie [check] but for the rest of us this tome will serve as nice option B. Best bets: Roasted White Peaches With Olive Oil, Lavender Honey, and Sea Salt or Negroni Creamsicle.

Mayim’s Vegan Table by Mayim Bialik with Dr. Jay Gordon ($21.99, DeCapoPress.com) will be a hit with fans of The Big Bang Theory (Bialik plays Amy Farrah Fowler on the smash sitcom) but it should be checked out by anyone who likes eating good, plant-based dishes. The actress slash neuroscientist has raised two vegan kids so she debunks the myths about raising kids on a plant-based diet, offers basic nutritional information that’s hard to find, and (also a rarity) includes a modern twist on some classic Jewish recipes. Best bets: Spanakopita With Yogurt Dipping Sauce or Hamantaschen.
