Summary

The classic collection of heirloom recipes featuring more than one hundred authentic dishes from New Mexico. Traditional New Mexican cuisine isn’t the same as Mexican or Tex-Mex—instead, it’s a unique fusion of various Native American, Mexican, Spanish, European, and even North American cowboy chuckwagon foods and cooking techniques. The more than one hundred authentic New Mexican dishes in Historic Cookery take you back to the old ways of preparing food, slow-cooked with flavor and just the right finishing touch. The chile sauces and meat, poultry, fish, cheese, egg, salad, soup, bread, sandwich, dessert, pastry, beverage, and other recipes will have you cooking just like your abuela. The first known published cookbook to focus on the distinctive dishes of this Southwestern state, Historic Cookery was written by Fabiola Cabeza de Baca Gilbert—a multilingual nutritionist who is also noted for inventing the U-shaped fried taco shell.
Available since: 05/21/2019.

    A memoir of a year spent working at a Brooklyn restaurant—and on a series of farms—to get the lowdown on organic, local, ethical cooking. Includes recipes! Food was always important to Melanie Rehak. She studied the experts on healthy nutrition, from Michael Pollan to Eric Schlosser to Wendell Berry, cooking, preparing, and sourcing what she thought were the best ingredients. So when her son turned out to be an impossible eater, dedicated to a diet of yogurt and peanut butter, she realized she needed to know more than just the basics of thoughtful eating—she needed to become a pro.   Thus began a year-long quest to understand food: what we eat, how it’s produced, how it’s prepared, and what really matters when it comes to socially aware, environmentally friendly, and healthy eating. By working at Applewood, a locally sourced Brooklyn restaurant, and volunteering her time to farming, milking, cheese making, and fishing, she learned the ins-and-outs of how to shop, cook, and eat right—all while discovering some delicious recipes along the way.   Wry, wise, and warm, Eating for Beginners is a delicious and informative journey into two of life’s greatest and most complicated pleasures: food and motherhood.

    “Celebrates the sweet excesses of the Austro-Hungarian Empire . . . Sachertorte, Apfelstrudel and Croissants are among the creations Rodgers demystifies.” —Publishers WeeklyTake a tour of the legendary cafés of Vienna, Budapest, and Prague where a rich tradition of masterful desserts and coffee lives on. For centuries, artists and philosophers have gathered around coffeehouse tables to complement their lively conversations with exquisite desserts. Modern cafés of this region remain loyal to this pastry tradition; though the décor has changed, it is still strudel—not lemongrass sorbet—that is served on the menu.In Kaffeehaus, Rick Rodgers celebrates 300 years of tradition with over 150 of the best classic Austro-Hungarian pastries. Using his celebrated skill as a teacher to present the recipes to bakers of all levels, Rodgers expertly shows how to create these glorious treats at home. Included are the explanations of the different kinds of batter, dough, and icing that form the foundation of this baking tradition, in addition to the many beverages—coffee or otherwise—that pair perfectly with the desserts.This revised second edition features new charts for ingredient weights and measures in addition to updated content and resource lists. One of the few books on authentic Austro-Hungarian baking written in English with recipes for American kitchens and their ingredients. Kaffeehaus beautifully captures the taste and elegance of these cafés, commemorating their culture, history, and the delectable legacy of their desserts.“Because the featured desserts (e.g., Apfelstrudel and Sachertorte) are steeped in tradition, this is as much a fascinating culinary history as it is a recipe collection.” —Library Journal

    Fifty interviews pay tribute to the Frenchman who transformed the American culinary scene and inspired countless chefs and foodies.    Certified Master Chef Roland G. Henin has been our nation’s top culinary mentor for the past fifty years, training such prestigious chefs as Chef Thomas Keller of French Laundry and Per Se and Certified Master Chef Ron DeSantis. For the first time, his story is being told—from his own perspective and through the lens of some of America’s most prominent chefs.   Read about how Certified Master Chef Rich Rosendale was inspired by Henin to turn a decommissioned nuclear bunker into a training kitchen. Discover Thomas Keller’s motivation for becoming a chef—a philosophy he learned from Henin. This fascinating memoir includes more than fifty interviews from mentees and colleagues who were shaped in some way by Chef Henin. Full of humorous anecdotes and behind-the-scenes glimpses into the elite culinary world, this is a rare and fascinating look at the life and legacy of a culinary genius.   Chef Henin was among the first European chefs to cross the Atlantic and bring classical cuisine to American culture. He and other pioneering chefs, like Jean-Jacques Rachou, were subversive radicals of their Old World. You won’t be disappointed by this unique memoir. As Chef Henin says, “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.”

    Comforting dishes and heartwarming paintings from the beloved children’s-book author and illustrator.   World-renowned artist Tasha Tudor fascinated fans with her sweet illustrations and simple lifestyle. This beautiful cookbook has been put together by her grandson, who carries on her legacy in Vermont. The recipes, or as she called them, receipts, also suggest Tasha’s philosophy. In all things moderation, she would say—then with a laugh, except gardening.   Tasha’s grocery list was never long. She had a robust vegetable garden, a large chest freezer, and a well-stocked larder. She created countless meals over many decades, and they were all very good. When possible, Tasha purchased fresh food, the origin and method of production of which she knew. But if she couldn’t, or didn’t want to, she didn’t worry. Frugality was on her shopping list as well.   These receipts—from Tasha’s poppy seed cake to shepherd’s pie, potato soup to chocolate pudding—have been the mainstay of Tasha’s family for generations and are, for the most part, from the original cookbook she began as a young woman. The simple, comforting, and delicious receipts are accompanied by her beautiful watercolors and new photographs of the food and Tasha’s homestead.

    Over the past decade, the popularity of cocktails has returned with gusto. Amateur and professional mixologists alike have set about recovering not just the craft of the cocktail, but also its history, philosophy, and culture. The Shaken and the Stirred features essays written by distillers, bartenders and amateur mixologists, as well as scholars, all examining the so-called 'Cocktail Revival' and cocktail culture. Why has the cocktail returned with such force? Why has the cocktail always acted as a cultural indicator of class, race, sexuality and politics in both the real and the fictional world? Why has the cocktail revival produced a host of professional organizations, blogs, and conferences devoted to examining and reviving both the drinks and habits of these earlier cultures?
