“Combines the worlds of ethical meat production with innovative ingredients and techniques . . . a must-own for amateur and professional butchers alike.”—Chef Clark Barlowe, Heirloom Restaurant, Charlotte, NC   Cured meat products arose from the need for preservation, in a time when cooking and refrigeration were not always available. Today, charcuterie is an embodiment of art in the kitchen, combining precision, balance, patience, and creativity; an economy of ingredients, as poetry is an economy of words. The confluence of these elements, along with the purest of ingredients, can enable anyone to craft cured meats in their home. Pure Charcuterie is a practical and artistic look at the techniques for curing meat at home both as a creative hands-on craft and as a fantastic and sustainable way to preserve highly valuable food. This accessible, beautiful, visual guide walks the reader through the process of making charcuterie, including: Sourcing ingredients Clear explanations of charcuterie technique Creative recipes balancing tradition and invention Smoking meats and building your own smoker   The analogies drawn between art and food, along with creative and accessible photographic discussions of charcuterie technique, make this book an essential primer on the basics of charcuterie: the mystery, the science, the art, and the technique. Ideal for home cooks working in small spaces, Pure Charcuterie is a must-have for experienced and new cooks alike—and any home artisan.  “I don’t know of anyone that can make a description of making mortadella sound poetic, funny, emotionally engaging and most importantly, to the point.”—Rey Tagle, home charcuterie master   “Takes the reader on a meaty, and yet artistic journey into the wonderful world of curing meats.”—Hank Will, editorial director, Mother Earth News

    More than 400 recipes—from beloved classic to new inspirations—that celebrate the tomato in its many mouthwatering preparations around the world.    Ever been confronted by a couple of unpromising-looking tomatoes and some of yesterday’s bread, with nothing else for supper? In The Big Red Book of Tomatoes, Lindsey Bareham will turn them into a delectable dinner for one. And, if you’re a gardener, the next time you’re stuck with a load of tomatoes that won’t ripen, why not try Lindsey’s irresistable green tomato tart with zabaglione cream?   In this lively, inspirational cookbook featuring more than 400 recipes, the fruit we love to eat as a vegetable is given the star treatment. There are salsas from Mexico, curries from India, Arab tagines, pizzas from Italy, and chutneys from the British Isles. And if you want to know how to make the ultimate Bloody Mary, then this is the book for you. There are innovative dishes such as Tomato Tarte Tatin, Golden Tomato Lasagna with Basil and Vine Tomatoes, classics such as Stuffed Tomatoes and Insalata Tricolore, as well as the more unusual Shaker Tomato Cream Pie, and of course pasta in every guise.   Bareham explores the tomato’s affinity with eggs, bread and pasta, as well as its ubiquitous appeal in salads and sauces, or paired with meat and fish. For lovers of quick dishes or slow simmering on the back burner, The Big Red Book of Tomatoes is an invaluable addition to the kitchen shelf.

    Fork It Over - The Intrepid...

    Adventures in eating by the twelve-time James Beard Award winner: “Richman’s dry, witty prose will delight readers who crave good culinary writing.” —Library Journal 
    Alan Richman has dined in more unlikely locations and devoured more tasting menus than any other restaurant critic alive. He has reviewed restaurants in almost every Communist country (China, Vietnam, Cuba, East Germany) and heedlessly indulged his enduring passion for eight-course dinners (plus cheese).  
    In Fork It Over, Richman retraces decades of culinary adventuring. In one episode, he reviews a Chicago restaurant owned and operated by Louis Farrakhan (not known to be a fan of Jewish restaurant critics) and completes the assignment by sneaking into services at the Nation of Islam mosque, where no whites are allowed. In Cuba, he defies government regulations by interviewing starving political dissidents, and then rewards himself with a lobster lunch at the most expensive restaurant in Havana. He chiffonades his way to a failing grade at the Paul Bocuse school in Lyon, politely endures Sharon Stone’s notions of fine dining, and explains why you can't get a good meal in Boston—spurred on by the reckless passion for food that made him the only soldier he knows who gained weight while in Vietnam and carried him from his neighborhood burger joint to Le Bernardin. 
    “A sharp, rollicking collection of articles documenting Richman’s most memorable culinary experiences . . . An enjoyable treat full of gastronomic guffaws.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) 
    “Reading Richman is like taking a brisk walk with a very funny friend.” —Entertainment Weekly 
    “From Shanghai to Havana to the Hamptons, Richman knows whereof he speaks, and he says it so well you can almost taste it.” —Forbes 
    “A very satisfying feast.” —Associated Press

    An entertaining homage to a Sunday-supper staple packed with thirty recipes (some from notable chefs), as well as tips, stories, photos, and illustrations. 
    Food writer, cookbook author, and brisket zealot Stephanie Pierson contends, “Some foods will improve your meal, your mood, your day, your buttered noodles. Brisket will improve your life.” 
    Brisket is so easy to warm up to, no wonder everyone loves it. Families pass brisket recipes down like heirlooms. Chat rooms are full of passionate foodies giving passionate opinions about their briskets–and each one claims to have the best brisket recipe ever! When Angel Stadium of Anaheim introduced a BBQ brisket sandwich, it promptly won a national contest for best ballpark cuisine. This lively book offers everything from brisket cooking tips to chef interviews to butcher wisdom. Color photographs, illustrations, and graphics ensure that brisket has never looked better. The recipes include something for everyone: Beef Brisket with Fresh Tangy Peaches, Scandinavian Aquavit Brisket, Sweet-and-Sour Brisket, Barbecued Brisket Sandwiches with Firecracker Sauce, a Seitan Brisket (even people who don’t like meat love brisket), and a 100% Foolproof Bride’s Brisket. 
    If brisket does indeed improve your life, then The Brisket Book promises to be the ultimate life-affirming resource for anyone who has savored–or should savor–this succulent comfort food. 
    “A fun little book, very entertaining with terrific recipes from friends, family and chefs. It is indeed as intended, “A Love Story with Recipes.” —Sara Moulton, author of Sara Moulton’s Home Cooking 101 
    “The Brisket Book has a recipe for everyone, and it’ll turn you into the star of any potluck.” —The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles 
    “Packed with history, wit, and expert opinions (including a list of fifty things about brisket that people disagree on), this book presents one of the world’s great comfort foods in all its lovable, chameleonlike glory, with recipes for corned beef, smoked brisket, Korean brisket soup, brisket burgers, and myriad Jewish braises, including Nach Waxman’s supposedly “most-Googled brisket recipe” of all, smothered in onions and virtually no liquid.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer
