From the unveiling of the innovative Lever House building to the sublimely fresh, modern dishes at the restaurant today, this luxu...rious cookbook celebrates the food, the architecture, and the design history of a New York landmark.<br><br>When the Lever House building first opened its doors in 1952, prominent architecture critic Lewis Mumford called it ?the eighth wonder of the world.? New Yorkers flocked to the site to get a glimpse of the city?s first all-glass skyscraper, a bottle-green gem that looked startlingly modern on Park Avenue. Fifty years later, Lever House is still creating a sensation. When John McDonald and Josh Pickard opened the Lever House Restaurant in 2003, it became an instant classic with the power-lunching celebrity set. Acclaimed chef Dan Silverman?s spectacular menu and designer Marc Newson?s incomparable decor won immediate attention from <i>The New Yorker</i>, the <i>New York Times</i>, and the city?s hippest residents.<br><br>Now, this cookbook captures the essence of Lever House. Opening with a chronicle of its history by <i>Vanity Fair</i> writer Matt Tyrnauer, <i>The Lever House Cookbook </i>offers an unprecedented look into the innovative design and the designers of the building and restaurant. Dan Silverman believes that fresh, sophisticated cuisine needn?t be overly complicated, and all of the more than 125 recipes here prove that the perfect combination of ingredients results in bold new flavors. Hamachi with Soy-Sherry Reduction offers a beautiful balance of salty and sweet, while a splash of Citrus Vinaigrette brightens a rich, buttery Alaskan Black Cod. Risotto al Barolo sings when studded with caramelized butternut squash, and the recipe for Grilled Lamb Chops redefines the hefty, juicy meal. Familiar tastes such as caramel and cinnamon reach new heights in Lever House?s signature desserts, like Apple Cheesecake Crisp.<br><br>With vivid photographs of the dishes and modern and archival images of the venue, <i>The Lever House Cookbook</i> is a timeless monument to New York style. read more

<b>Food-sharing is the hot new thing in the "getting dinner on the table" conversation, and in The Soup Club Cookbook, four friend...s share not only their formula for starting a soup club--which gives you at least three meals every month when you don't have to worry about dinner--but also 150 fantastic recipes for soups and sides and storing tips for stretching those meals across the week.</b><br>  <br> The Soup Club began when four friends (who, between them, have four husbands and ten hungry kids and several jobs) realized that they didn't actually have to cook at home every night to take pleasure in a home-cooked meal. They simply had to join forces and share meals, even if they weren't actually eating them together. Caroline, Courtney, Julie, and Tina happen to be neighbors, but a soup club is for anyone: colleagues, a group of workout buddies, a book club. All you need are a few people who simply want to have more home-cooked food in their lives.<br><br>In a soup club each person takes a turn making soup--and sometimes other dishes for sides or for when everyone needs a break from soup, so if a club has four people, in a month each person will have dinner delivered three times--a dish that can start as a full meal and stretch into more dinners or lunches or even morph into a sauce. Soup is forgiving, versatile, and perfect for sharing; it can be spiced to taste, topped elaborately or not at all, and dressed up or down. It travels well and reheats beautifully.  <i>The Soup Club Cookbook</i> also has dozens of tips for cooking in quantity and for tailoring soup to individual tastes and needs.

<b>Nestled in the blue mists of Tennessee's Smoky Mountains, the 10,000-acre bucolic refuge of Blackberry Farm houses a top-rated ...small inn with one of the premier farm-to-table restaurants in the country.  This sumptuous cookbook offers a collection of recipes that are as inspired by the traditional rustic cooking of the mountainous south as they are by a fresh, contemporary, artistic sensibility. Some of the dishes are robust, others are astonishingly light, all are full of heart and surprise and flavor ? and all are well within the reach of the home cook. <br></b><br>California has the French Laundry, Virginia has the Inn at Little Washington, and Tennessee has Blackberry Farm, where the indulgences of a luxury inn are woven together with odes to nature ?  fly-fishing, hiking, foraging, bird watching, and heirloom gardening ?  to create a new way of looking at the world, a way in which anything seems possible. <br><br>This is particularly true at the Inn's table and in its award-winning wine cellar. To the farm's master gardeners, food artisans and chefs, meals are an opportunity to express not only the earth and the culture of this remote spot, but also its spirit. On a spring day this might mean Rye Whiskey-Cured Trout with Fresh and Pickled Fennel, and the summer garden might inspire a Chilled Corn Soup with Garlic Custard, a papardelle of baby carrots, or a tomato terrine. In the cooler weather, game and traditionally preserved food ?  cider-basted venison, a shell-bean and gamebird cassoulet, a dried apple stack cake or  Bourbon Apple Fried Pies ?  keep conversation in front of the fire lively. For all its artfulness, however, Blackberry Farm's garden-to-table cooking tends to be an ode to a well-loved cast iron skillet, a backyard smoker or a wood-fired grill. <br><br>In the foothills, you don't eat to eat, you eat to talk, to remember and to imagine what you will eat tomorrow. In this book, the stories of the people who practice the traditional mountain food arts ?  the bacon man, the heirloom gardener, the cheese maker and sausage man ?  are woven together with the recipes, lore and regional history to reflect the spirit of the cooking at Blackberry Farm. Breathtaking photographs capture the magical world that surrounds the table ?  the hills and rushing creeks, the lights and shadows of the forest, the moods and moments of the garden. read more

<b>What is ?vegetronic?? A world where vegetables (and fruits, too) are at the center of delicious meals?where crisp broccoli is t...he star of a dinner party and where the flavors and textures of bright, just-picked ingredients are a source of inspiration.</b><br>  <br> As much for carnivores as it is for vegetarians, <i>Vegetronic </i>is a playful and provocative examination of the potential of fresh produce. In this debut cookbook, Michelin-starred chef Alexis Gauthier introduces favorite ingredients from his kitchen?from fragrant rose petals to artichokes, from ripe tomatoes to overripe strawberries?and explains how to highlight their flavors in visually arresting, vegetable-intensive (but not always vegetarian) preparations.<br>  <br> As arresting in their presentation as they are boldly flavored, these dishes can be as simple as peeling an orange or dicing a cucumber. Gauthier offers suggestions for coaxing something delicious from early- or late-in-season ingredients, like unyieldingly hard peaches or end-of-season fava beans and peas. Gauthier shows you how to harness eggplant?s velvety texture for a sweet-and-sour bruschetta, or how to make a pan-fried head of broccoli dressed with whole-grain mustard into a worthy main course. Even when a dish gets an extra bump from bacon, chicken broth, or lamb jus, Gauthier?s emphasis is always on the essential flavor of the vegetable or fruit that centers the dish as a whole.<br>  <br> These 120 diverse recipes focus on the potential of fresh fruits and vegetables?a salad of warm asparagus ribbons set over ricotta gnocchi and crunchy bacon; a scattering of crisp apples over shockingly pink beets; a chilled fava bean soup topped with a silky poached egg; a pumpkin risotto made even creamier with a dash of mascarpone. So whether you?re a committed vegetarian or just an enthusiastic omnivore, <i>Vegetronic </i>will make you rethink the way you shop, cook, and eat all year long. read more

There is a food revolution sweeping the nation, changing the way Americans think and eat, and meat is at the heart of it.
