Summary

“A new favorite of mine. Modern Mediterranean is one of those cookbooks that makes you lust after everything within it” (The New Yorker).   Melia Marden grew up in New York and Greece, where she enjoyed great seasonal food and a family that loved to entertain. As executive chef at New York City’s hotspot, The Smile, she develops an ever-changing seasonal menu rooted in Mediterranean flavor that has been raved about by Frank Bruni and Padma Lakshmi and is loved by celebrities. Now, in Marden’s first book, she presents 125 easy Mediterranean-inspired recipes for the home cook. From Minted Snap Peas to Watermelon Salad to Summer Steak Sliced Over Corn to Almond Cream with Honey, these are recipes calling for fresh ingredients and bold flavor but requiring no special techniques or equipment. Including 100 photos, this is a gorgeous, unique package that will charm and inspire home cooks everywhere.   “A stylish, no-nonsense guide to creating some rather choice staples.” —Interview   “Melia Marden gives us perfect food, conceived with true brilliance, executed with true love.” —Joan Didion, author of The White Album

    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.

    Phyllis Grant's Everything Is Under Control is a memoir about appetite as it comes, goes, and refocuses its object of desire. Grant's story follows the sometimes smooth, sometimes jagged, always revealing contours of her life: from her days as a dancer struggling to find her place at Julliard, to her experiences in and out of four-star kitchens in New York City, to falling in love with her future husband and leaving the city after 9/11 for California, where her children are born. All the while, a sense of longing pulses in each stage as she moves through the headspace of a young woman longing to be sustained by a city into that of a mother now sustaining a family herself.Written with the transparency of a diarist, Everything Is Under Control is an unputdownable series of vignettes followed by tried-and-true recipes from Grant's table—a heartrending yet unsentimental portrait of the highs and lows of young adulthood, motherhood, and a life in the kitchen.

    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
