Summary

Over 133 modern American recipes from the critically acclaimed New York City bistro that you can make in your own kitchen. 
 
One flight up, in a bustling neighborhood bistro overlooking the chaos of one of downtown New York’s busiest streets, Ignacio Mattos serves food so uncannily delicious it consistently earns him accolades like “Chef of the Year,” and his restaurant Estela a spot among the World’s 50 Best. 
 
  
 
Estela shows you how to think like Ignacio Mattos, who as an immigrant sees ingredients with fresh eyes. Here is how to look at something as ordinary as a button mushroom and make it extraordinary (shaved thin over ricotta dumplings), or as familiar as burrata and transform it (with a pool of juiced herby greens and charred bread). How to use vinegars, citruses, fish sauce, and pickling broth to give each bite a pop of flavor. How to compose a plate in layers, so that the deeper you dig, the more that is revealed, while each forkful carries an electric marriage of flavors and textures. 
 
  
 
Estela presents over 133 recipes, including classics that will never leave the menu, like Lamb Ribs with Chermoula and Honey, Mussels Escabeche on Toast, and the hide-and-seek joy of Endive Salad with Walnuts and Ubriaco Rosso. Small plates meant for sharing with friends and family, like Cherry Tomatoes with Figs and Onion. Incredible pan-seared steaks. And basics for the pantry that will elevate whatever you feel like making. 
 
Named one of the Best Cookbooks of Fall 2018 by The New York Times Book Review, Epicurious, Grub Street, The Kitchn, and more!

    With recipes and historical trivia included, “this spirited guide is as bracing as that classic combination of rye whiskey, sugar, bitters and orange zest” (Tucson Citizen). 
     
    American tavern owners caused a sensation in the late eighteenth century when they mixed sugar, water, bitters, and whiskey and served the drink with rooster feather stirrers. The modern version of this “original cocktail,” widely known as the Old Fashioned, is a standard in any bartender’s repertoire and holds the distinction of being the only mixed drink ever to rival the Martini in popularity. 
     
    In The Old Fashioned, Gourmand Award-winning author Albert W. A. Schmid profiles the many people and places that have contributed to the drink’s legend since its origin. This satisfying book explores the history of the Old Fashioned through its ingredients and accessories—a rocks glass, rye whiskey or bourbon, sugar, bitters, and orange zest to garnish—and details the cocktail’s surprising influence on the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel and the Broadway musical scene, as well as its curious connection to the SAT college entrance exam. Schmid also considers the impact of various bourbons on the taste of the drink and reviews the timeless debate about whether to muddle. 
     
    This entertaining and refreshing read, featuring a handpicked selection of recipes along with delicious details about the particularities that arose with each new variation, is perfect for anyone with a passion for mixology or bourbon.

    Have you ever tasted a real homemade custard pudding? And no, we don’t mean the one that comes from a packet, but a beautiful, trembling cream dessert made the old fashioned way with eggs, sugar, milk and cream.  In Quivering Desserts & Other Puddings you will find recipes for both classic puddings such as vanilla, almond, chocolate and wonderful contemporary versions such as salted caramel pudding with caramel popcorn and white chocolate pudding with jasmine tea. And much, much more.  Sounds difficult? It is not. A real pudding just requires a little time at the stove and some hours in the refrigerator.  And the reward - a quivering cream artwork that makes children quiver and adults sigh.
