Gaby Darkin Profile

We love cookbooks here at goop. With so many great new ones hitting the shelves each month, it can be hard to keep up, so we’ve created the goop Cookbook Club. When we find one we can’t put down, we pick a few favorite recipes for you to try at home. Want to join the cookbook club? Instagram your creations from the new book, tag @goop and #goopcookbookclub, and we’ll regram our favorites.

Reading Gaby Dalkin’s blog, What’s Gaby Cooking, feels like getting the best California-cooking advice from a close friend. That is, if your friend favors fresh and healthy Instagram-worthy rice bowls topped with everything from garlicky roasted mushrooms to fresh fish and pickled ginger. We were beyond excited to get our hands on a copy of What’s Gaby Cooking: Everyday California Food. Dalkin is funny, encouraging without being condescending, and just plain fun to read; we devoured her book in one sitting. And her recipes are equally fun to make, and super delicious besides.

Three Takes on a Bowl

  • Mango Tuna Poke Bowl

    “I’m a fan of sushi-grade tuna, but if you can’t get your hands on it, use some sushi-grade salmon! Alternatively, if you can’t find sushi-grade fish, you can skip that entirely and just toss in some extra edamame.”


  • Black Rice and Roasted Mushroom Bowl

    “Mushrooms are one of those vegetables that, when done properly, are incredible! I call for wild mushrooms in this recipe but you can adjust depending on what’s available. Any mushroom will work. The key is just cooking them as the recipe says and letting them caramelize and really develop all those flavors!”


  • Chicken Larb Bowl with Coconut Rice

    “I make it at least once a week—it’s one of my favorites. I’ve even made it with cauliflower rice if I’m trying to keep things super light.”
