--Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW
 
"Duguid has a scholar's love of research, a cook's hunger, and a journalist's talent for storytelling. . . . The recipes are from all over the world and her knowledge is staggering. . . . Simply brilliant." 
--Diana Henry, The Telegraph (U.K.), The Best Cookbooks to Buy in Autumn 2022

Naomi Duguid, who's taken food lovers to many corners of the globe, now invites readers and cooks on a very different journey--a deep dive into the miracle of salt and its essential role in preserving, fermenting, and transforming food.
 
Learn age-old techniques for making sauerkraut, miso, butter, prosciutto, kimchi, salt-fermented pickles, basturma, salt-preserved lemons, brined eggs, and much more. Create a vibrant "salt pantry" filled with enticing blends of salt and spices, and with easy condiments and preserves such as Spiced Green Mango Pickle and Dried Shrimp and Garlic Chutney. Read about essential salt-preserved flavorings such as soy sauce, fish sauce, pickled plums, salted anchovies, and salt cod.
 
The wide range of international recipes that follow invite you to use this umami-rich larder of salt-preserved ingredients and salted flavorings to transform vegetables, soups, mains, pasta dishes, and desserts. Orange and Black Olive Salad balances tangy and salty. Black Bean Sauce adds intense flavor to stir-fries. Bacalao Tortilla is a nod to salt cod as a cornerstone of European kitchens. Shio Koji, a simple salt-fermented ingredient, flavors grilled vegetables and other foods with subtlety and power. Kebabs marinated with a blend of pomegranate molasses and fish sauce are a triumph of salty-sweet-tart umami. And there's nothing like a layer of saltiness to bring out the best in sweets and desserts, from Creamy Candied Ginger and Miso Ice Cream to Yogurt Cake with Salted Lemon and Nuts, from Breton Salted-Butter Cake to Miso Cookies with Dark Chocolate Chips.
 
Working with salt-preserved and salt-fermented ingredients not only opens up a rich new world of flavors and techniques but also offers cooks the gift of connecting with generations of culinary wisdom.

A Bartender's Guide to the World

- Lauren Mote , James O Fraioli

Hardcover $35.00 - Add to Cart
Reader Reward Price: $31.50

Transport your glass around the globe with more than 75 cocktail recipes from one of the world's premier bartenders.

Grab your glass and let's go!

For over 20 years, Lauren Mote has tended bars and traveled the world, often as one of the only women in a male-dominated industry. She's developed cocktail recipes, sought out new ingredients, and gathered stories along the way. Now, in her first book, Lauren is inviting readers and home bartenders to pack their suitcases and come with her on an international cocktail adventure.

Few bartenders can match Lauren's encyclopedic knowledge of spirits, liqueurs, and tinctures, not to mention her originality for blending them into a perfectly-balanced drink. Once you've gotten a handle on the basics of bartending, and gathered your cocktail shaker along with a few other pieces of equipment, you'll be raising your glass in no time. The recipes are organized by their star ingredients, such as agave, gin, whiskey, rum, vodka, and more. Every drink is given its own designation of standard, mid, low, or zero proof, and you'll find a whole chapter on nonalcoholic cocktails, because Lauren feels strongly that all drinks should be prepared with care, whether they include alcohol or not. Once you've narrowed down the base that you're in the mood for, let Lauren's magnetic storytelling and gift of the gab continue to guide you. In each chapter, you'll find a collection of Mise en Place Recipes to help you build up your bar's basic ingredients and make Lauren's techniques your own.

With beautiful storytelling and photography, and cocktail recipes you won't find elsewhere, A Bartender's Guide to the World is as much a pleasure to read as it is to imbibe from.

Milk Street

- Christopher Kimball

Hardcover $44.00 - Add to Cart
Reader Reward Price: $39.60

Make a meal out of almost anything.

Stop shopping and start cooking what you have. Your pantry's possibilities are endless. Milk Street will help you transform whatever you already have into bright, bold meals from around the world. 

Got a can of chickpeas? It can become anything from a quick hummus to a curry spiked with sweet carrots, from a garlicky chickpea soup to a bowl of crispy canned beans with lemon and scallions. 

Or grab that can of tomatoes from the back of the cabinet. It can become spicy one-pot pasta all'arrabbiata, chilaquiles rojos, a rich shakshuka with poached eggs or a chicken and tortilla soup.

Turn to the refrigerator, where eggs and leftover vegetables are the start of cheesy migas, a Spanish tortilla with potato chips or a quick fried rice. Chicken breasts or thighs from the freezer become Hungarian chicken paprikash or hearty chicken salad with green tahini. Cooks in Amalfi, Italy, taught us to turn a wedge of Parmesan and lemons on the counter into a light yet flavorful pesto. And that's just the start. Desserts, too, come together easily with ingredients everyone keeps on hand. 

These 225 recipes begin with the most common ingredients in your kitchen, but they provide more than a lesson in practicality. They teach an improvisational, creative way to cook. 

That's when cooking becomes an adventure.

Hardcover $40.00 - Add to Cart
Reader Reward Price: $36.00

Recipes, perfected. A repertoire of reliable, classic recipes and fundamental techniques that deliver gorgeous results, every time, for cooks of every ability, in the tradition of Genius Recipes and Barefoot Contessa Foolproof.

Stop searching the web for what to cook for dinner. From the best roast chicken to the most sumptuous brownie, Lesley Chesterman's perfected recipes have you covered--tonight, and always.

When Montreal's favorite food critic, Lesley Chesterman, was approached ten years ago to write a cookbook, she laughed and said: "The last thing the world needs is another recipe for carbonara." She never forgot the editor's reply: "True. But I think they might like your recipe for carbonara." That comment resonated, because carbonara, like so many dishes, is a recipe Lesley has worked tirelessly to get just right. Returning again and again to recipes and making small tweaks or big overhauls is what Lesley loves to do. And the result of a lifetime of tinkering is Make Every Dish Delicious, a cookbook that offers a repertoire of foolproof modern classics and a wealth of cooking knowledge to give everyone a helping hand in the kitchen.

Make Every Dish Delicious begins with deeply informative chapters on how to set up your kitchen and pantry, and how to work with fundamental ingredients and basics such as eggs, butter, stocks, and vinaigrettes. Lesley effortlessly demystifies multiple technical challenges (how to make an omelet, how to deep fry without fear, how to use--and not misuse--the all-important salt, and many more). From there, she takes you on a savoury and sweet journey of recipes encompassing modern classics such as her super simple carbonara, perfect pain de campagne, show-stopping salt-baked bass, crowd-pleasing standing rib roast, stunning black forest cake, and gorgeous Gascogne apple tart.

Every recipe here is reliable, repeatable, and irresistible. Homemade no-knead bread and pizza dough? Yes, you can! Chicken Kiev (the easy way)? Of course! Cote de boeuf for two? Why not? Chocolate megamousse for a dessert sensation? Lesley's got you. These are dishes to cook with total confidence for friends and family, every day. Let Lesley's collection of perfected recipes become your very own.
