From one of America best-loved and most-admired chefs, an instructive and creative collection of over 200 recipes that bring simpl...e, delicious Italian cooking to the family table, with imaginative ideas for variations and improvisations.Lidia's Family Table features hundreds of fabulous new dishes that will appeal both to Lidia’s loyal following, who have come to rely on her wonderfully detailed recipes, and to the more adventurous cook ready to experiment. • She welcomes us to the table with tasty bites from the sea (including home-cured tuna and mackerel), seasonal salads, and vegetable surprises (Egg-Battered Zucchini Roll-Ups, Sweet Onion Gratinate). • She reveals the secret of simple make-ahead soup bases, delicious on their own and easy to embellish for a scrumptious soup that can make a meal. • She opens up the wonderful world of pasta, playing with different shapes, mixing and matching, and creating sauces while the pasta boils; she teaches us to make fresh egg pastas, experimenting with healthful ingredients–whole wheat, chestnut, buckwheat, and barley. And she makes us understand the subtle arts of polenta- and risotto-making as never before. • She shares her love of vegetables, skillet-cooking some to intensify their flavor, layering some with yesterday’s bread for a lasagna-like gratin, blanketing a scallop of meat with sautéed vegetables, and finishing seasonal greens with the perfect little sauce. • She introduces us to some lesser-known cuts of meats for main courses (shoulders, butts, and tongue) and underused, delicious fish (skate and monkfish), as well as to her family’s favorite recipes for chicken and a beautiful balsamic-glazed roast turkey. • And she explores with us the many ways fruits and crusts (pie, strudel, cake, and toasted bread) marry and produce delectable homey desserts to end the meal. Lidia’s warm presence is felt on every page of this book, explaining the whys and wherefores of what she is doing, and the brilliant photographs take us right into her home, showing her rolling out pasta with her grandchildren, bringing in the summer harvest, and sitting around the food-laden family table. As she makes every meal a celebration, she invites us to do the same, giving us confidence and joy in the act of cooking. read more

Featuring 140 mouthwatering new recipes, a gastronomic journey of the Italian regions that have inspired and informed Lidia Bastia...nich's legendary cooking.For the home cook and the armchair traveler alike, Lidia's Italy offers a short introduction to ten regions of Italy—from Piemonte to Puglia—with commentary on nearby cultural treasures by Lidia's daughter Tanya, an art historian.· In Istria, now part of Croatia, where Lidia grew up, she forages again for wild asparagus, using it in a delicious soup and a frittata; Sauerkraut with Pork and Roast Goose with Mlinzi reflect the region’s Middle European influences; and buzara, an old mariner’s stew, draws on fish from the nearby sea.· From Trieste, Lidia gives seafood from the Adriatic, Viennese-style breaded veal cutlets and Beef Goulash, and Sacher Torte and Apple Strudel.· From Friuli, where cows graze on the rich tableland, comes Montasio cheese to make fricos; the corn fields yield polenta for Velvety Cornmeal-Spinach Soup.· In Padova and Treviso rice reigns supreme, and Lidia discovers hearty soups and risottos that highlight local flavors.· In Piemonte, the robust Barolo wine distinguishes a fork-tender stufato of beef; local white truffles with scrambled eggs is “heaven on a plate”; and a bagna cauda serves as a dip for local vegetables, including prized cardoons.· In Maremma, where hunting and foraging are a way of life, earthy foods are mainstays, such as slow-cooked rabbit sauce for pasta or gnocchi and boar tenderloin with prune-apple Sauce, with Galloping Figs for dessert.· In Rome Lidia revels in the fresh artichokes and fennel she finds in the Campo dei Fiori and brings back nine different ways of preparing them.· In Naples she gathers unusual seafood recipes and a special way of making limoncello-soaked cakes.· From Sicily’s Palermo she brings back panelle, the delicious fried chickpea snack; a caponata of stewed summer vegetables; and the elegant Cannoli Napoleon.· In Puglia, at Italy’s heel, where durum wheat grows at its best, she makes some of the region’s glorious pasta dishes and re-creates a splendid focaccia from Altamura.There’s something for everyone in this rich and satisfying book that will open up new horizons even to the most seasoned lover of Italy. read more

Hometown boy turned superstar, Michael Symon is one of the hottest food personalities in America. Hailing from Cleveland, Ohio, he... is counted among the nation’s greatest chefs, having joined the ranks of Mario Batali, Bobby Flay, and Masaharu Morimoto as one of America’s Iron Chefs. At his core, though, he’s a midwestern guy with family roots in old-world traditions. In Michael Symon’s Live to Cook, Michael tells the amazing story of his whirlwind rise to fame by sharing the food and incredible recipes that have marked his route.Michael is known for his easy, fresh food. He means it when he says that if a dish requires more than two pans to finish, he’s not going to make it. Cooking what he calls “heritage” food–based on the recipes beloved by his Greek—Italian—Eastern European—American parents and the community in Cleveland–Michael draws on the flavors of traditional recipes to create sophisticated dishes, such as his Beef Cheek Pierogies with Wild Mushrooms and Horseradish, which came out of the pierogies that his grandpa made. Michael translates the influences of the diverse working-class neighborhood in which he grew up into dishes with Mediterranean ingredients, such as those in Olive Oil Poached Halibut with Fennel, Rosemary, and Garlic; Italian-style handmade pastas, like Linguini with Heirloom Tomato, Capers, Anchovies, and Chilies; and re-imagined Cleveland favorites, such as Mac and Cheese with Roasted Chicken, Goat Cheese, and Rosemary.Part of Michael’s irresistible allure on the Food Network comes from how much fun he has in the kitchen. To help readers gain confidence and have a good time, Michael Symon’s Live to Cook has advice for cooking like a pro, starting with basic instructions for how to correctly use techniques such as braising, poaching, and pickling. There’s also information on how caramelizing vegetables and toasting spices can give dishes a greater depth of flavor–instead of a heavy, time-consuming stock-based sauce–and why the perfect finishing touch to most meat or fish dishes can be a savory hot vinaigrette instead.With fantastic four-color photography throughout and tons of helpful “Symon Says” tips, Michael Symon’s Live to Cook is bound to get anyone fired up about getting into the kitchen and cooking up something downright delicious. read more

Any cookbook that refers to itself as a “love letter� to a particular cuisine has got us instantly intrigued. And Alex Raij an...d Eder Montero’s The Basque Book lives up to that moniker, not least because they fell in love cooking in a Basque restaurant in New York City and were later married. Basque cooking is unique in its simplicity, often only using just a few ingredients. But you’ll be amazed at the complex flavors you’ll coax out of them, when armed with a few techniques. The authors begins with the fundamentals—frying, brining, seasoning—and then introduces some building blocks of the cuisine: mayonnaise, stocks, and sauces. From there you’re well-equipped to begin your exploration of Basque dishes. Eat your way through the pinxtos, or the Basque equivalent of tapas, with creamy ham croquettes, scallops marinated in soy, sherry, and ginger, and fragrant, spiced lamb meatballs. There’s a whole chapter devoted to eggs (“The Basques love eggs cooked every way and at every meal� say the authors)–don’t miss the tuna and foie deviled eggs, and of course the classic spanish tortilla. The sweets often involve fruit, like red-wine poached cherries over a bouncey flan, or honey and nuts, like when smothering a Basque yogurt-like specialty called cuajada. Trust us: allow Raij’s affection for all things Basque to sweep you off your feet and you just might find yourself in love, too. Comes with a signed bookplate. Size: 7 7/16" W x 9 3/4" H.

The NoMad Cookbook, named for the NoMad Restaurant at the NoMad Hotel, is really a celebration of the neighborhood north of Madiso...n Square Park (NoMad—get it?); between the recipes are peppered photographs of the surrounding street corners and shops, sights that we, neighbors of the NoMad, see on our way to work. And the recipes? They reflect the dark, cozy, almost conspiratorial feel of the restaurant itself, luxe-looking but achievable favorites (Clams Baked with Bacon and Garlic; Cherry with Fennel, Brown Bread, and Yogurt) photographed and styled dramatically. But our favorite part of the book is in the details, like the folded vintage map of the NoMad neighborhood tucked into the library slip-like pocket, or the fact that, when opened, the cookbook reveals a mini, hidden book of cocktail recipes.

Created by macerating or distilling herbs, spices, seeds, citrus peels, flowers, barks, and other botanicals, amari are aromatic and complex. Brad Thomas Parsons demystifies the world of the amaro in his book of the same name—unearthing its growing appeal and introducing the uninitiated to its bittersweet flavor. Amaro is a guide to the liqueur, including tasting notes and history behind many of the amari you can find in bars today (and some that require some digging). It's a recipe book for cocktails and desserts where amaro takes center stage. And it's even an instruction manual to creating your very own amaro. Comes with a signed bookplate. Size: 6.5" W x 9" H. Length: 280 pages. Author: Brad Thomas Parsons. read more

Cuba! doesn’t get an exclamation in its title for nothing. This exploration of Cuban cuisine is exuberant and celebratory—as s...een through the eyes of its passionate and resilient people. Goldberg, Kuhn, and Eddy start you off with a fundamental building block of Cuban food: rice and beans, a cultural amalgamation of Spanish and African food that is intrinsic to the Cuban identity. Once you’ve mastered that (and a few other basics like yellow rice, fried plantains, and mojo) you’re just a fry pan away from a Cuban-inspired dinner. Cuban classics—the iconic Cubano pressed sandwich and Tortilla Española, to name a few—are accompanied by less familiar, modern dishes, like Squid-ink Empanadas and Ribs with Guava Barbecue Sauce. Pair your meal with one of their ten essential Cuban cocktails (Mojitos!) The book is full of the people and places the writers met and saw during their travels: the farmers of the organoponicos (organic farms), the elderly woman who invited the crew in off the street to cook a one-pot slow-simmered stew with her, and the fisherman lined up on the Malecón, a 5-mile stretch of seawall on the coast. Their stories bring personality and joy to the recipes within, justifying that exclamation point on the title—! Read more about Cuba! and the author's travels here and a review of the book here. Comes with a signed bookplate. Size: 8" W x 10" H. Length: 256 pages. Author: Dan Goldberg, Andrea Kuhn, and Jody Eddy. read more

Naomi Pomeroy's Taste & Technique is a thoughtful approach to dishes akin to fine dining restaurants—broken down in a way that m...akes even the most intimidated home cook feel at ease. Each recipe introduces you to a technique, sometimes big, oftentimes small, that you'll carry with you from page to page, pulling out of your back pocket like it was always there. You'll now know to score a tiny "x" in the bottom of a peach before blanching it, so the skin slips off easily. The same technique you use to beat cream into a fluffy whip, you'll break out when making your first aioli. And learning how to get a good sear on a chicken breast will come in handy later for salmon and duck breast. Amidst all the building-block techniques you'll pick up are Pomeroy's recipes. Some soul-satisfying, some delicate, all simply presented to let each component's taste shine. Dinner tonight? Crispy Fried Egg with Fresh Corn Polenta and Mixed Chicories with Grapes, Candied Walnuts, and Aged Balsamic Vinegar. Tomorrow we'll tackle her Milk-Braised Pork Shoulder, and a dessert of Apricot-Brown Butter Tart is in our very near future. Vivid photography sets Pomeroy's recipes to music—the photos shimmer alongside her pristine, detailed instructions. Taste & Technique is a 2017 Piglet finalist! See how it does here. Comes with a signed bookplate. Size: 8.5" W x 10.75" H. Length: 400 pages. Author: Naomi Pomeroy with Jamie Feldmar. read more

Ashley Christensen opened Poole's diner in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina in 2007. But Poole's had a long life before that, star...ting in 1945—first as a pie shop, then expanding into a luncheonette, and then going through various iterations and owners over the next several decades. Christensen herself bartended and cooked there during college but it wasn't until years later, after she had become a professional chef, that the stars aligned and Christensen bought Poole's. She subsequently turned the menu on its head, with dishes daring and bold—but kept around the comfort and community of the original neighborhood diner. On her menu? Homegrown Tomato Pie. Duck Liver and Sweet Potato Dirty Rice Cakes. Grits with Roasted Pumpkin, Aged Maple Syrup, and Crispy Pepitas. Oyster Stew with Twice-Fried Saltines and Charred Turnip Relish. This ain't your grandma's diner. Comes with a signed bookplate. Size: 8" W x 10.25" H. Length: 304 pages. Author: Ashley Christensen & Kaitlyn Goalen. read more

Katie Parla and Kristina Gill's Tasting Rome tips a hat to the city's traditional preparations and turns an eye towards the future... with contemporary spins on those classics. These aren't just your typical cacio e pepes and carbonaras (though, they're here, too!). You'll find a chapter devoted to the off-cuts and organs of animals called "Quinto Quarto", or fifth quarter, a name given to the parts left over after Roman nobles had their pick of the pricier cuts of meat. There are plenty of deep-fried, gooey and salty street food staples to be made, like suppli classici (rice croquettes) and polpette di bollito (deep-fried beef meatballs). And bakers will delight in recipes for ciabattina and thin-crust roman style pizza (accompanied by helpful process shots—so you know exactly what the authors mean when they ask you to gather, fold, or pinch your dough). Parla and Gill pepper the book with snippets about Roman history and modern life, from the buzzing apertivo culture to the unique cuisine spawned from the city's large Jewish population. So you'll learn about the why behind the recipes, as you work your way through dish after dish. Tasting Rome is a 2017 Piglet finalist! See how it does here. Comes with a signed bookplate. Size: 5.9"L x 0.9" W x 8.3" H. Length: 256 pages. Author: Katie Parla and Kristina Gill. read more
