<p><strong>Finalist for the James Beard Foundation Book Award and the IACP Cookbook Award<br /><br /><br /><br />"[A]s good a read on the science of cooking as there is." —Mark Bittman, author of <em>How to Cook Everything</em></strong></p><br /><p>“Wolke, longtime professor of chemistry and author of the <em>Washington Post</em> column Food 101, turns his hand to a Cecil Adams style compendium of questions and answers on food chemistry. Is there really a difference between supermarket and sea salt? How is sugar made? Should cooks avoid aluminum pans? Interspersed throughout Wolke’s accessible and humorous answers to these and other mysteries are recipes demonstrating scientific principles. There is gravy that avoids lumps and grease; Portuguese Poached Meringue that demonstrates cream of tartar at work; and juicy Salt-Seared Burgers…With its zest for the truth, this book will help cooks learn how to make more intelligent choices.” —<em>Publishers Weekly</em></p>

<b>Anthony Bourdain, host of Parts Unknown, reveals "twenty-five years of sex, drugs, bad behavior and haute cuisine" in his breakout <i>New York Times</i> bestseller <i>Kitchen Confidential</i>.</b><br /><br />Bourdain spares no one's appetite when he told all about what happens behind the kitchen door. Bourdain uses the same "take-no-prisoners" attitude in his deliciously funny and shockingly delectable book, sure to delight gourmands and philistines alike. From Bourdain's first oyster in the Gironde, to his lowly position as dishwasher in a honky tonk fish restaurant in Provincetown (where he witnesses for the first time the real delights of being a chef); from the kitchen of the Rainbow Room atop Rockefeller Center, to drug dealers in the east village, from Tokyo to Paris and back to New York again, Bourdain's tales of the kitchen are as passionate as they are unpredictable.<br /><br />Kitchen Confidential will make your mouth water while your belly aches with laughter. You'll beg the chef for more, please.

Refer to the canon of 100 essential recipes—and dozens of variations—to put the lessons into practice and make bright, balanced vinaigrettes, perfectly caramelized roast vegetables, tender braised meats, and light, flaky pastry doughs. <BR> <BR>Featuring 150 illustrations and infographics that reveal an atlas to the world of flavor by renowned illustrator Wendy MacNaughton, <i>Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat</i> will be your compass in the kitchen. Destined to be a classic, it just might be the last cookbook you’ll ever need. <BR> <BR>With a foreword by Michael Pollan.

<b><i>--</i></b><br /><b><i>'A manual for living and a declaration of hope' Nigella Lawson</i></b><br /><b><i><br /></i></b><b><i>'A moving testimonial to the redemptive power of cooking. Generous, honest and uplifting' Diana Henry</i></b><br /><b><b><i><br /></i></b></b>There are lots of ways to start a story, but this one begins with a chicken…<br /> <br />There was a time when, for Ella Risbridger, the world had become overwhelming. Sounds were too loud, colours were too bright, everyone moved too fast. One night she found herself lying on her kitchen floor, wondering if she would ever get up – and it was the thought of a chicken, of roasting it, and of eating it, that got her to her feet and made her want to be alive.<br /> <br /> <i>Midnight Chicken</i> is a cookbook. Or, at least, you'll flick through these pages and find recipes so inviting that you will head straight for the kitchen: roast garlic and tomato soup, uplifting chilli-lemon spaghetti, charred leek lasagne, squash skillet pie, spicy fish finger sandwiches and burnt-butter brownies. It's the kind of cooking you can do a little bit drunk, that is probably better if you've got a bottle of wine open and a hunk of bread to mop up the sauce. But if you settle down and read it with a cup of tea (or a glass of that wine), you'll also discover that it's an annotated list of things worth living for – a manifesto of <i>moments</i> worth living for. This is a cookbook to make you fall in love with the world again.<br /><br /><i><b>'A big old massive heart exploding love story' The Times</b></i>

<b>Harness the power of spices to take your dishes from simple to spectacular with 139 exciting recipes, plus find 47 easy spice blends and condiments you can use many ways.</b><br /><br />Spices: You probably have a cabinet full of them, but do you know how to make the most of them? <i>Spiced</i> opens up the world of possibility hidden in your own pantry, with six chapters, each of which shares a way to use spices to amp up the flavor of your cooking, along with foolproof recipes that put these simple techniques to work. Sprinkle a finishing salt you make from sea salt and herbs on seared white fish fillets to make them special. Make a different roast chicken every week by applying a different rub. Learn the best spices to use in curries--and when to add them for fragrant (not dusty) results. Add flavor--and texture--with homemade blends (you'll eat your spinach when it's topped with pistachio dukkah). Infuse condiments with spices (try chipotle ketchup on a burger). With the following six simple techniques, plus vibrant recipes, you'll find yourself not only spooning chili powder into the chili pot but making the chili powder yourself, or flavoring desserts with saffron or cardamom rather than just cinnamon.<br /><br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; #1: <b>Season smarter with salt and pepper. </b>You'll learn about brining, using peppercorns of all colors, and making finishers like sriracha salt.<br />     #2: <b>Give meat and vegetables a rub.</b> We'll provide blends that you can put to use in our recipes (try juniper and fennel on salmon) or your own.<br />     #3: <b>Bloom and toast.</b> Bring out ground spices' complexity by cooking them in oil; unlock dried chiles' fruity or nutty flavors by toasting them.<br />     #4: <b>Finish foods with flair.</b> Spice-and-nut/seed blends likes shichimi togarashi (a mix of spices, orange zest, and sesame seeds) add texture, too.<br />     #5: <b>Let spices steep.</b> Infuse spices into condiments like pickled fennel that punches up chicken salad or rosemary oil to drizzle over bruschetta.<br />     #6: <b>Bake with spices.</b> Go beyond vanilla by rolling doughnuts in strawberry-black pepper sugar. Make your own rose water and add it to pistachio baklava.
