<b><i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Pam Anderson updates her classic cookbook—which put "cooking by heart" on the map—to include modern flavors and new techniques that today's home cooks will love, with new and original full-color photographs.</b><br /><br />It's been 17 years since the blockbuster <i>How to Cook Without a Book</i> was published, and Pam Anderson's method of mastering easy techniques to create simple, delicious meals is even more relevant today. From the working professional who loves cooking to the busy family member trying to get dinner on the table, today's modern home cook wants to master useful techniques and know how to stock pantries and refrigerators to pull together delicious meals on the fly. <br /><br />Understanding that most recipes are simply "variations on a theme," Pam innovatively teaches technique, ultimately eliminating the need for recipes. The new edition will reflect ingredients and techniques home cooks love to use today: chicken dishes are revamped by using thighs instead of boneless skinless breasts; hearty, dark greens like kale and swiss chard replace hearts of Romaine in salads; roasted Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes move from side dish to the main event in more meatless entrees; plus, tips for creating a whole meal using one pot or one sheet pan (instead of dirtying multiple dishes). Each chapter contains helpful at-a-glance charts that highlight the key points of every technique and a master recipe with enough variations to keep you going until you've learned how to cook without a book.

<p><b>An unlikely world history from the bestselling author of <i>Cod </i> and <i>The Basque History of the World<br /><br /></i></b>In his fifth work of nonfiction, Mark Kurlansky turns his attention to a common household item with a long and intriguing history: salt. The only rock we eat, salt has shaped civilization from the very beginning, and its story is a glittering, often surprising part of the history of humankind. A substance so valuable it served as currency, salt has influenced the establishment of trade routes and cities, provoked and financed wars, secured empires, and inspired revolutions.  Populated by colorful characters and filled with an unending series of fascinating details, <b><i>Salt</i> </b>is a supremely entertaining, multi-layered masterpiece.</p>

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • Trailblazing food writer and beloved restaurant critic Ruth Reichl took the job (and the risk) of a lifetime when she entered the high-stakes world of magazine publishing. Now, for the first time, she chronicles her groundbreaking tenure as editor in chief of <i>Gourmet.</i></b><br /><b><br />“A must for any food lover . . . Reichl is a warm, intimate writer. She peels back the curtain to a glamorous time of magazine-making. You’ll tear through this memoir.”—<i>Refinery29</i> (The Best New Books of April 2019)</b><br /><br /> When Condé Nast offered Ruth Reichl the top position at America’s oldest epicurean magazine, she declined. She was a writer, not a manager, and had no inclination to be anyone’s boss. Yet Reichl had been reading <i>Gourmet</i> since she was eight; it had inspired her career. How could she say no?<br /><br /> This is the story of a former Berkeley hippie entering the corporate world and worrying about losing her soul. It is the story of the moment restaurants became an important part of popular culture, a time when the rise of the farm-to-table movement changed, forever, the way we eat. Readers will meet legendary chefs like David Chang and Eric Ripert, idiosyncratic writers like David Foster Wallace, and a colorful group of editors and art directors who, under Reichl’s leadership, transformed stately <i>Gourmet </i>into a cutting-edge publication. This was the golden age of print media—the last spendthrift gasp before the Internet turned the magazine world upside down.<br /><br /> Complete with recipes, <i>Save Me the Plums</i> is a personal journey of a woman coming to terms with being in charge and making a mark, following a passion and holding on to her dreams—even when she ends up in a place she never expected to be.<br /><br /><b>Praise for </b><i><b>Save Me the Plums</b></i><br /><br />“Poignant and hilarious . . . simply delicious . . . Each serving of magazine folklore is worth savoring. In fact, Reichl’s story is juicier than a Peter Luger porterhouse. Dig in.”<b>—<i>The New York Times Book Review</i></b><br /><br /> “In this smart, touching, and dishy memoir . . . Ruth Reichl recalls her years at the helm of <i>Gourmet</i> magazine with clear eyes, a sense of humor, and some very appealing recipes.”<b>—<i>Town & Country</i> (The Must-Read Books of Spring 2019)</b><br /><br />“If you haven’t picked up food writing queen Ruth Reichl’s new book, <i>Save Me the Plums</i>, I highly recommend you fix that problem. . . . Reichl is in top form and ready to dish, with every chapter seeming like a dedicated behind-the-scenes documentary on its own.”<b>—Soleil Ho, <i>San Francisco Chronicle</i></b>

I grew up on a steady diet of packaged toaster pastries and breakfast cereals. But now that I’m a parent of school-aged children, I really value grab-and-go breakfast recipes, like breakfast cookies and cereal bars. Weekday mornings are hectic, and not getting easier any time soon.<br /><br />Each of the recipes in this collection of gluten free breakfast recipes can be made ahead of time and frozen, then defrosted easily on your way out the door in the morning. They can also still impress your guests when you need fancy-looking (but still easy!) recipe for a leisurely weekend brunch or just for a special occasion.
