'There are some fine recipes here that you're not likely to find elsewhere... If you're looking for a new cuisine to explore, this is very satisfying.' - New York Daily News
'For cooks, it's Armenian 101 and much more - a great way to learn about the cuisine. Wise has made a concerted effort to make the recipes approachable and easy to execute.' - Los Angeles Daily News
A veteran cookbook author returns to her delicious culinary heritage in this savoury and passionate recipe collection.
Victoria Jenanyan Wise grew up with the flavours, scents and seasonings of Armenian cooking - a cuisine that combines Mediterranean tastes with Persian, Arabic and Russian accents. In her first Armenian cookbook, Wise presents traditional favourites and inspired contemporary variations.
The author takes us on a comprehensive tour of the typical Armenian pantry, with its nuts, seeds, herbs, spices, fragrant extracts and wealth of fresh ingredients. Each chapter begins with advice and commentary on essentials, such as fresh yogurt, starters (maza), breads, salads, pilafs, meatballs and other meat, fish and vegetable dishes as well as sweets. There is also a chapter on the Armenian people and its homeland.
Recipes include:
- Lavosh, Armenian pizzas, and other savoury breads
- Shish kebab, moussaka, and other lamb dishes
- Baked and roast chicken prepared with yogurt, dill, turmeric and pomegranate
- Grilled mackerel with lemon and dill; red snapper stew with tomato and artichokes
- Stuffed vegetables (dolmas) and stuffed vine leaves
- Baklava and other fillo-pastry sweets; lemon yogurt cake, yogurt panna cotta with cherry sauce; almond and rice-flour pudding with toasted almond slices.
This authentic and warm-hearted cookbook will be met by a ready audience of Armenians, as well as lovers of Greek, Turkish, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines, and other culinary adventurers.

    In 2020, banana bread had a moment. When the first lockdown arrived, anxious shoppers quickly stocked up on food but then found themselves with cupboards full of flour and fruit bowls overspilling with rapidly ageing bananas. The answer was simple and the resulting baking craze intense! But why stop at banana bread? There are plenty of other loaf cakes and easy bakes that you can rustle up in no time to enjoy with your mid-morning coffee or afternoon tea. A loaf cake is, by definition, made in a bread loaf pan (as its name implies) and is sometimes also known as a quick bread for that reason. These fuss-free recipes can incorporate a wide variety of ingredients, from fresh and dried fruit to nuts and seeds, and include delicious flavourings including chocolate, vanilla and warm spices. Popular recipes included here are Chocolate Chip Banana Bread, Marmalade & Almond Bread, Lemon Polenta Loaf, Vanilla Pound Cake, Honey Cake and so much more!

    The first regional cookbook published in the United States, this nineteenth century kitchen manual includes recipes, kitchen tips and house management solutions. 
    Published in 1824 in Washington, DC, Virginia Housewife is considered by many culinary historians to be the first real American cookbook, with recipes that originated in American kitchens, leaving behind British traditions, ingredients and methods. Virginia Housewife is also recognized as the nation’s first regional cookbook with a focus on southern-style specialties, some appearing in print for the first time, such as Ochra Soup, Curry of Catfish, Gumbo, Chicken Pudding, Apoquiniminc Cakes. But author Mary Randolph also includes local variations of recipes from the West Indies, New England, Spain, and France, all reflecting the influence of many cuisines on Southern cooking. Diverse offerings include Dough Nuts, Gaspacho, Ropa Vieja, as well as a number of delightful ice cream recipes including, black walnut, quince, pear, citron, and almond. An immediate success, Virginia Housewife was republished at least nineteen times before the Civil War.   
    The Virginia Housewife is also a complete lifestyle reference providing an introduction to the food, culture, and manners of the antebellum South, as well as housekeeping instructions on topics ranging from soap making to herb drying and silver cleaning—everything that a woman of the nineteenth (or the twenty-first) century might desire to know. 
    This facsimile edition of Mary Randolph’s Virginia Housewife was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts, founded in 1812.

    The personal journey of one of the most respected chefs in the country. “The life lessons here are even better than the passel of recipes.” —Andrew Zimmern, Travel Channel   Featuring more than eighty recipes and full-color photography throughout, Good Stock weaves together memoir and cookbook in a beautiful and engaging package. It is the story of Sanford D’Amato’s journey from young Italian kid who loved to cook to unknown culinary student with a passion for classical French cuisine to a James Beard Award–winning chef and restaurateur. Through D’Amato’s experience opening Sanford, one of the highest-rated restaurants in America over the past twenty years, Good Stock also tells the tale of America’s embrace of fine dining and its acceptance of chefs as master craftsmen.   Readers of Good Stock will come to believe, as D’Amato does, that to create great food, it doesn’t matter if you’re preparing a grilled hot dog or pan-roasted monkfish—what matters is that you treat all dishes with equal love, soul, and respect, and try to elevate each dish to its ultimate level of flavor. Good Stock combines Midwestern charm with international appeal as the perfect book for aspiring chefs, culinary students, and foodies everywhere.   “If you are going to get one cookbook this year, get this one. If you are going to read one memoir this year, read this one . . . a full measure of his wit and love for food and people.” —Janos Wilder, James Beard Award–winning chef   “D’Amato is able to make these recipes meaningful to the reader. The result is a warm, compelling memoir that will bubble over into home kitchens everywhere.” —Isthmus
