Summary

“This is an incredible and beautiful collection of recipes, stories about Central Coast vineyards, and photos.” —Susan Feniger, chef and author of Susan Feniger’s Street Food 
 
California’s Central Coast wine country is on everyone’s lips. Running roughly from Monterey to Santa Barbara, the Central Coast is the fastest-growing American Viticultural Area (AVA) in the state. Here, great minds conceive and create great wines—many of them blends of Rhône grape varieties. Complement these wines with the lush resources of unspoiled land, sea, and barnyard and you have the recipe for a fresh and alluring wine country lifestyle. 
 
In this lushly photographed tome, bestselling cookbook author Brigit Binns writes a vivid, delicious love letter to her home state. One hundred and twenty wine-friendly and wine-inclusive dishes showcase California’s glorious bounty, such as Shaved Artichoke and Pancetta Salad with Lavender; Fennel- and Garlic-Crusted Roast Chicken; Petrale Sole with Pinot Noir Butter Sauce; and Fresh Fig Tart with Honey, Goat Cheese, and Pistachios. Each recipe has a wine pairing suggestion from the region as well as from afar. Plus, 25 get-to-know-them profiles bring the reader inside the hearts and minds of the region’s passionate winemakers and food artisans.  
 
We all dream of the wine country lifestyle. With The New Wine Country Cookbook, you can now savor the romance, bold honest flavors, and rustic outdoor sensibility of California’s sublimely unpretentious new wine country in your own home. 
 
“Provides an evocative view of the dynamic food and wine culture of California’s fastest growing wine region.” —Rajat Parr, author of the James Beard Award–winning Secrets of the Sommeliers

    A James Beard Foundation Award–winning record of the traditional regional cuisines of Oaxaca, from one of the world’s foremost authorities on Mexican cooking.No one has done more to introduce the world to the authentic, flavorful cuisines of Mexico than Diana Kennedy. Acclaimed as the Julia Child of Mexican cooking, Kennedy has been an intrepid, indefatigable student of Mexican foodways for more than fifty years and has published several classic books on the subject, including The Cuisines of Mexico (now available in The Essential Cuisines of Mexico, a compilation of her first three books), The Art of Mexican Cooking, My Mexico, and From My Mexican Kitchen. Her uncompromising insistence on using the proper local ingredients and preparation techniques has taught generations of cooks how to prepare—and savor—the delicious, subtle, and varied tastes of Mexico.In Oaxaca al Gusto, Kennedy takes us on an amazing journey into one of the most outstanding and colorful cuisines in the world. The state of Oaxaca is one of the most diverse in Mexico, with many different cultural and linguistic groups, often living in areas difficult to access. Each group has its own distinctive cuisine, and Diana Kennedy has spent many years traveling the length and breadth of Oaxaca to record in words and photographs “these little-known foods, both wild and cultivated, the way they were prepared, and the part they play in the daily or festive life of the communities I visited.” Oaxaca al Gusto is the fruit of these labors—and the culmination of Diana Kennedy’s life’s work. Organized by regions, Oaxaca al Gusto presents some three hundred recipes—most from home cooks—for traditional Oaxacan dishes. Kennedy accompanies each recipe with fascinating notes about the ingredients, cooking techniques, and the food’s place in family and communal life. Lovely color photographs illustrate the food and its preparation. A special feature of the book is a chapter devoted to the three pillars of the Oaxacan regional cuisines—chocolate, corn, and chiles. Notes to the cook, a glossary, a bibliography, and an index complete the volume.

    “I know of no other book that offers its readers the opportunity to learn how to remain healthy without giving up the pleasure that dining out brings.” —Monty Preiser, veteran food & wine writer   This is the ultimate guide for people who want to dine out guilt-free! In The Restaurant Diet, author Fred Bollaci, who lost 150 pounds from 330:   • Teaches readers how to read a menu • Explains how to ask important questions of the restaurant staff • Gives guidance on how to have food customized to your dietary needs • Provides insights into converting this into healthy eating at home   As Fred teaches readers how to eat out and lose weight, he reveals the real secret: It’s not about preparing “clean” food at home, or going “whole” and excluding wheat, sugar, and dairy. Nor is it about counting calories or grams. It’s about WHY one overeats in the first place. After trying every fad diet, Fred devised a four-phase eating and exercise plan with the help of his doctor, a nutritionist, a trainer, and a psychologist.   Featuring recipes from America’s most noted restaurant chefs, as well as original recipes from Fred’s own kitchen, The Restaurant Diet is for the nineteen million Americans who love to eat out on a regular basis—and the 38 percent who are overweight.   “The Restaurant Diet, with its smart, educated choices, will revolutionize the world of dieting. As a chef and restaurant owner, I am excited to be part of this game-changing book and way of life—where fine-dining restaurants are a conscious dieter’s friend.” Gabriel Kreuther, Michelin star chef and James Beard Award winner

    Here is tea in all its glory—from its history, rituals, and health benefits to its use in science experiments, cocktail making, and fortune-telling. 
     
    Tea drinking has become a way of life. To put it frankly, it is a love, an addiction, and some would even go as far to say a philosophy. Dr. Keith Souter examines the perpetual impact that this adored beverage has bestowed upon the world for centuries, from its mystical origins in the East, to its inevitable influence on the West. The Tea Cyclopedia is an indispensable reference for anyone interested in all things tea. Commencing each chapter with insightful quotes, it not only captures the historical beginnings of this beloved drink, but also explores tea’s involvement in politics, health, the economy, and even fortune-telling. This unprecedented beverage has united people in times of adversity; it has also divided nations, causing volatile revolutions, such as the Sri Lankan Civil War and the Boston Tea Party. But today you will most likely find that various cultures have developed their own unique style of enjoying tea, and the ritual of tea drinking itself is not only intriguing, but also highly rewarding.  
     
    In this meticulously detailed guide, readers will rediscover tea, its cultivation, and all of its richness and intricacy as a worldwide beverage. The Tea Cyclopedia is an enthralling tribute to the illustrious, invigorating, and elusive leaf that has vehemently continued to inspire people for more than two thousand years.

    The author of The Puglian Cookbook heads to the Italian island of Sardinia for a unique twist on the Mediterranean diet.   Sardinia, the isolated and majestic island off the southwest coast of Italy, has a rich and ancient history as home to different Mediterranean peoples whose customs have intertwined over the centuries. The result is an unparalleled richness of cuisine. The Sardinian Cookbook captures these wonderful flavors, delivering more than 100 easy-to-make recipes that are as healthful as they are delicious.   Sardinia is an island of many distinct landscapes and nationalities, from its rugged interior and breathtaking coastline to its diverse blend of Spanish, French, Italian, and Moorish cultures. From myrtle, saffron, and honey to lamb, seafood, and specialty cheeses, Sardinian food features a broad variety of flavors for any occasion. Many traditional Sardinian recipes are simple and straightforward—reflecting the peasant cuisine heavy on legumes, fresh vegetables, olive oil, and bread. However, it is common for Sardinians to celebrate holidays with lavish feasts and special delicacies: suckling pig, lobster, bottarga (Sardinian caviar), and the full-bodied yet natural flavorings of Sardinian sausages.  Praise for The Puglian Cookbook “We love that before cranking up the heat at the stove, Todorovska pauses to make sure we have a deep understanding of the ingredients that are the fundamentals of Puglian cuisine. She writes for the home cook, with no fancy tricks, no hard-to-find ingredients.” —Chicago Tribune   “For those who want a taste of excellent, yet different Italian cooking, The Puglian Cookbook is not to be missed.” —Midwest Book Review
