    Take your backyard cookouts to a new level. “Davis and Kirk explore the world of competition barbecue and share tips and recipes straight from the champs.” —The Edwardsville Intelligencer 
     
    It began with one simple question: What do championship barbecuers love to cook for themselves, when there are no rules but the simple laws of physics and basic chemistry? With more than thirty years of barbecue contest experience apiece, Ardie A. Davis, professional barbecue judge and barbecue historian extraordinaire, and KC Baron of Barbeque Paul Kirk, with a slew of awards under his belt—including seven world championships—were just the guys to ask it. 
     
    America’s Best BBQ—Homestyle collects the best backyard cookout recipes from people who have gone pro. Some of the recipes are former competition winners that have earned a constant place at the family table. Others are foods that teams like to make (and share) while they tend their fires on contest day. A few are old family recipes passed down for generations. And some are even the result of ingenious experiments in the kitchen and at the grill. Most are easy. All are sure to win the hearts of friends and neighbors at your next family cookout. 
     
    Also included are tips and advice on everything from meal prep to gadgets, some basics to get you started, a few tall tales from the pits, and tons of photos of the dishes and the pitmasters who make them. This is the only book you need to become “the envy of the subdivision, the pride of the campground, and the host with the most at the next tailgate party” (The Self Taught Cook).

    Bone broth is just about as elemental as it gets. For centuries all across the world, cultures have been reaping both the flavor and the nutritional benefits of slowly simmered broth. And yet, as with most aspects of our food culture, we’ve wandered far away from one of the most basic and essential ingredients to all of cooking. The convenience of processed and packaged broth in a box has ousted homemade broths to the detriment of our health and taste buds.Now, in The Bare Bones Broth Cookbook, small-batch broth company founders Katherine and Ryan Harvey take the guesswork out of making authentic bone broth at home, providing foolproof recipes for meat, fish, poultry, and vegetable broths—as well as more than 75 inventive ideas for incorporating broth into a wide variety of dishes. From on-the-go beverages like their Coconut and Lime Sipping Broth or Carrot and Orange Smoothie to seasonally inspired soups to hearty mains like Tomatillo-Cilantro Pulled Pork and Fig-Braised Chicken with Spiced Walnuts—the Harveys explain how easy it is to enhance the taste and nutritional value of any meal while also helping you save money and reduce waste.  And through it all, they offer insightful kitchen pointers, ingredient tutorials, and an overview of the myriad and astonishing health benefits of this modern day elixir. Just as real, slow-cooked bone broth is essential to delicious, nourishing food, The Bare Bones Broth Cookbook is essential to any cookbook collection.Advance Praise for The Bare Bones Broth Cookbook“Once considered a professional chef’s secret ingredient, bone broth is now finding its way into kitchens everywhere—to the benefit of our taste buds and our overall health. The Bare Bones Broth Cookbook offers delicious and inventive new ways to use this nourishing ingredient in everyday meals.” —Diane Sanfilippo, New York Times bestselling author of Practical Paleo and The 21-Day Sugar Detox“Elevate your culinary home to luscious new levels by using this well-researched and insightful book, chock full of delicious broth recipes for both meal planning and your morning mug.” —Adam Danforth, James Beard Award–winning butcher and author of Butchering Poultry, Rabbit, Lamb, Goat, and Pork

    Life on the Line - A Chef's...

    In 2007, chef Grant Achatz seemingly had it made. He had been named one of the best new chefs in America by Food & Wine in 2002, received the James Beard Foundation Rising Star Chef of the Year Award in 2003, and in 2005 he and Nick Kokonas opened the conceptually radical restaurant Alinea, which was named Best Restaurant in America by Gourmet magazine. Then, positioned firmly in the world's culinary spotlight, Achatz was diagnosed with stage IV squamous cell carcinoma—tongue cancer. The prognosis was grim, and doctors agreed that the only course of action was to remove the cancerous tissue, which included his entire tongue. Desperate to preserve his quality of life, Grant undertook an alternative treatment of aggressive chemotherapy and radiation. But the choice came at a cost. Skin peeled from the inside of Grant's mouth and throat, he rapidly lost weight, and most alarmingly, he lost his sense of taste. Tapping into the discipline, passion, and focus of being a chef, Grant rarely missed a day of work. He trained his chefs to mimic his palate and learned how to cook with his other senses. As Kokonas was able to attest, the food was never better. Five months later, Grant was declared cancer-free, and just a few months following, he received the James Beard Foundation Outstanding Chef in America Award. Life, on the Line tells the story of a culinary trailblazer's love affair with cooking, but it is also a book about survival, about nurturing creativity, and about profound friendship. Already much-anticipated by followers of progressive cuisine, Grant and Nick's gripping narrative is filled with stories from the world's most renowned kitchens—the French Laundry, Charlie Trotter's, el Bulli—and sure to expand the audience that made Alinea the number-one selling restaurant cookbook in America last year.
