Summary

This compendium of US Army cooking manuals features recipes, camp cooking tips, and more from the Revolutionary War to WWI.   This collection of excerpts from US Army cooking manuals illustrates how America fed its troops from the late eighteenth century to the early twentieth, offering a glimpse of what daily life was like for those preparing and consuming the rations. With an introduction explaining the historical background, this is a fascinating and fun exploration of American army cooking, with a dash of inspiration for feeding your own army!   Beginning with a manual from 1775, you will learn how the Continental Congress kept its Patriot forces fed. A manual from 1896 prepares Army cooks for any eventuality—whether in the garrison, in the field, or on the march—with instructions on everything from butchery and preserving meat to organizing food service and cleaning utensils. Along with classic American fare such as chowder, hash, and pancakes, it also includes recipes for Crimean kebabs, Turkish pilau, and tamales.   In contrast, a 1916 manual offers a detailed consideration of nutrition and what must be one of the first calorie counters. Instructions are given on how to assemble a field range in a trench or on a train. Among the more unusual recipes are head cheese—meat stew made from scraps—and pickled pigsfeet. Later manuals produced during WWI include baking recipes for breads and cakes, as well as how to cook dehydrated products.   “Culinary and military historians will equally find this a valuable resource.” —Booklist

    There is no time for boredom at the restaurant Tickets, where engagement and good company are the order of the day. Indeed, fun has been the key ingredient in the restaurant’s cuisine since Albert Adrià opened its doors in 2011 with the Iglesias brothers, Pedro, Borja and Juan Carlos. It has become a benchmark for Barcelona’s restaurant scene ever since and its recipes have clearly evolved, though without losing any of their freshness or magic. Today the dishes at Tickets have fully transcended the concept of the tapa. So, this is not a tapas book!Albert Adrià invites us once again to walk through the doors of Tickets, where diners become actors in a film, performers in a vaudeville variety show or in a chorus line. Strawberry tree with elderflower and kimchi, Porex with Kalix caviar, Prawns in frozen salt, Saffron sponge with bread soup, Cannibal chicken with cassava bone and the oyster dishes, like Grilled oyster with black chanterelle tea, are just a sample of the nearly 100 recipes disclosed in this book.

    Part culinary memoir and part travelogue, Carole Bumpus gathered this compilation of intimate interviews, conversations, stories, and traditional family recipes (cuisine pauvre) in the kitchens of French families as she traveled throughout the countryside. Travel with her through Champagne caves/wineries and historic cathedrals, local farmers’ markets, ancient potters’ guilds, and restaurant kitchens with wood-fire ovens. Learn how to make homemade Spinach-stuffed Tortellini with Bolognaise Sauce from the Champagne region, Crêpes and Watercress-stuffed Ravioli from the Lorraine, and Baekeofe and Kugelhopf from the Alsace. “Go blind” from the family stock of Eau de Vie liqueur and be treated to tales of foraging for snails for the infamous and now extinct Escargots Festival. And, on a somber note, listen to accounts of families forced from their communities during the German occupation of WWII in the Alsace and Lorraine, only to continue to struggle for survival after finally making their way home.
    
    
    
    This book is a compilation of stories about making ends meet; about people being grateful for all they had, even when they had almost nothing; about the sharing of family jokes and laughter; and about family trials and triumphs. This book is about people savoring the life they have been given.

    When it was first published in 1934, Erna Fergusson's Mexican Cookbook made authentic Mexican recipes accessible to cooks nationwide--including celebrated favorites such as enchiladas, chile rellenos, and carne adovada, as well as the simple, rustic foods traditionally prepared and served in New Mexican homes. 
    Inspired by the delight and enthusiasm with which visitors to the Southwest partook of the region's cuisine, this popular cookbook remains an enduring tribute to the ambience and spirit of territorial New Mexico.

    From food writer and historian Angela Clutton comes The Vinegar Cupboard, demonstrating the many great ways vinegars can be used to balance and enhance flavours, and enable modern cooks to make the most of this ancient ingredient. There aren't too many ingredients which manage to bring flavour and adaptability to recipes and are actively good for you, but vinegar manages it, and this must-have new book looks at how they have woven their way through culinary and medical history for thousands of years, and highlight the ways we can all benefit from vinegar in our diet.  
     
    There is a growing interest in vinegars and a recognition of the role acidity plays in cooking, and within these page, Angela Clutton shows how much can be achieved using just red or white wine vinegar in your cooking, as well as exploring the vast array of vinegars available. The range of vinegars on the market are expanding rapidly, and you can easily find fruit, herb, sherry, cider, malt, rice, balsamic and many types of red and white wine vinegars (from rioja through to champagne) on your supermarket shelves. The Vinegar Cupboard encourages cooks to have an arsenal of as many varieties of vinegars as they can fit in their kitchen; while we don't expect everyone to have a vinegar cupboard, we'd like to think this book will encourage a vinegar shelf at least! 
     
    Info-graphics and flavour wheels enhance the recipes, ensuring this is a usable and accessible book for all home cooks.
