Summary

Recipes from the Vermont inn that has delighted diners for over two hundred years: “Perhaps America’s foremost experts on regional food.” —San Diego Magazine 
 
The Dorset Inn, an extraordinarily romantic special-occasion restaurant, is a destination for those who go through southern Vermont to ski and sightsee. People honeymoon here, have anniversary meals here, and come to the Dorset Inn to get away from it all. It’s a place rich with historical association with the very beginnings of America and American cooking. It was on the Dorset Village Green that the Green Mountain Boys prepared for battle in the Revolutionary War, and just down the road is Arlington, where Norman Rockwell created his most beloved paintings. 
 
Elegant Comfort Food from the Dorset Inn not only celebrates the history of the inn and the spirit of America found in New England—it also is a practical cookbook containing recipes founded on a tradition of hearty portions, clarity of flavors, and transformation of leftovers into glorious meals, but refined and elevated. Cooks can turn to it for ideas for Sunday dinners, company’s-coming meals, candlelight suppers, and leisurely family breakfasts on a weekend morning.  
 
Elegant Comfort Food from the Dorset Inn is part of Jane and Michael Stern’s Roadfood cookbook series, which celebrates the finest regional restaurants in the United States.

    A rollicking exploration of the history and future of our favorite foods
    		 
    When we humans love foods, we love them a lot. In fact, we have often eaten them into extinction, whether it is the megafauna of the Paleolithic world or the passenger pigeon of the last century. In Lost Feast, food expert Lenore Newman sets out to look at the history of the foods we have loved to death and what that means for the culinary paths we choose for the future. Whether it’s chasing down the luscious butter of local Icelandic cattle or looking at the impacts of modern industrialized agriculture on the range of food varieties we can put in our shopping carts, Newman’s bright, intelligent gaze finds insight and humor at every turn. 
    		 
    Bracketing the chapters that look at the history of our relationship to specific foods, Lenore enlists her ecologist friend and fellow cook, Dan, in a series of “extinction dinners” designed to recreate meals of the past or to illustrate how we might be eating in the future. Part culinary romp, part environmental wake-up call, Lost Feast makes a critical contribution to our understanding of food security today. You will never look at what’s on your plate in quite the same way again.

    “Almost as much guide book as it is cookbook . . . the authors dive into the ingredients unique to Provencal cuisine and the history of the region.” —Kitchn   Provence, the beautiful region that sits at the scenic crossroads of southern France, the Italian Alps, and the Mediterranean, has long been an area of historical import and distinct culture. But above all else, it is known as a producer of some of the finest food and wine France has to offer, with a cuisine that emphasizes healthful ingredients such as olive oil, fresh vegetables, Mediterranean seafood, as well as dry, aromatic rosé.  Provence Food and Wine is one of the only English-language books available on the cuisine, wine, and sights of this stunning Mediterranean enclave on the southern coast of France. Packed with 47 traditional Provencal recipes, all of which emphasize the incredibly popular and healthy Mediterranean diet, Provence Food and Wine also provides detailed information on regional wines, most notably rosé. This is the most famous wine of Provence and has made great strides in the US. Readers will be able to learn about pairing between wine and food, as Viktorija Todorovska and François Millo expertly explain what to look for and where to get these wines outside of Europe.   Full-color photography shows off all of these dishes, as well as the dazzling sights of the region's lush interior, sparkling coastline, and breathtaking vistas. In Provence Food and Wine, Todorovska and Millo “bring the joie de vivre of this region right to your fingertips, capturing its allure with simplicity and heart” (One for the Table).

    The internationally known Cajun chef and humorist serves up easy-to-cook and easy-to-eat recipes for parties, picnics, or everyday occasions.  “Dis is so easy to cook and it tastes so good, you are going to think somebody lied to you about how good it is, I garontee.” —Justin Wilson   People in Louisiana love to cook and they love to socialize. That’s why these easy down-home recipes are just the thing for the neighborly chef. Justin Wilson, who was always looking for ways to make his cooking easier, eliminates peeling and chopping by using flavored salts and powders instead of onions, celery, and garlic.   From breakfast to dinner and appetizers to desserts, Wilson packs every course with a cornucopia of flavor. Pecan Cornbread is made with pecan meal, and fish is fileted twice to speed up the process, allowing the host to get out of the kitchen and mingle with guests. Adding just the right amount of spice to every dish, Wilson makes good use of local ingredients, like Creole mustard, Louisiana hot sauce, and cayenne pepper. Sayings and anecdotes are of course included, because just like his food, Wilson is a representative of Cajun culture.
