<p>The revered Iron Chef shows how to make flavorful, exciting traditional Japanese meals at home in this beautiful cookbook that is sure to become a classic, featuring a carefully curated selection of fantastic recipes and more than 150 color photos. </p><p>Japanese cuisine has an intimidating reputation that has convinced most home cooks that its beloved preparations are best left to the experts. But legendary chef Masaharu Morimoto, owner of the wildly popular Morimoto restaurants, is here to change that. In <em>Mastering the Art of Japanese Home Cooking</em>, he introduces readers to the healthy, flavorful, surprisingly simple dishes favored by Japanese home cooks. </p><p>Chef Morimoto reveals the magic of authentic Japanese food—the way that building a pantry of half a dozen easily accessible ingredients allows home cooks access to hundreds of delicious recipes, empowering them to adapt and create their own inventions. From revelatory renditions of classics like miso soup, nabeyaki udon, and chicken teriyaki to little known but unbelievably delicious dishes like fish simmered with sake and soy sauce, <em>Mastering the Art of Japanese Home Cooking</em> brings home cooks closer to the authentic experience of Japanese cuisine than ever before. </p><p>And, of course, the famously irreverent chef also offers playful riffs on classics, reimagining tuna-and-rice bowls in the style of Hawaiian poke, substituting dashi-marinated kale for spinach in oshitashi, and upgrading the classic rice seasoning furikake with toasted shrimp shells and potato chips. Whatever the recipe, Chef Morimoto reveals the little details—the right ratios of ingredients in sauces, the proper order for adding seasonings—that make all the difference in creating truly memorable meals that merge simplicity with exquisite flavor and visual impact.</p><p>Photography by Evan Sung</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.

<b>With over 175 foolproof recipes covering everything from simple roast chicken and pork loin to top sirloin roast, rack of lamb, and lobster, this authoritative volume offers a master class in the timeless art and science of roasting.</b><br /><br />Roast: It's at once a verb and a noun, a technique and a cut of meat, and a concept so familiar and seemingly simple that it has rarely been explored in a single volume. In <i>How to Roast Everything</i>, America's Test Kitchen expertly demonstrates the scope and versatility of roasting, exploring the many ways to coax big, bold flavor out of poultry, meat, seafood, fruits, and vegetables alike. <br /><br />Why do some recipes need a roasting rack and some don't?

With dozens of enticing flavor variations, clever tips, and masterful prep tricks spread across the information-packed pages, this book will quickly transform even novice home cooks into roasting experts. And while this collection offers plenty of stately centerpieces like Crown Roast of Pork and Butterflied Turkey with Cranberry-Molasses Glaze, it also proves that roasting suits every meal.

<b>650 Recipes for EVERYTHING You'll Ever Want to Make. </b><br /><br /> Because smaller families shouldn't have to rely on recipes built for four or six, America's Test Kitchen has reengineered 650 of our best recipes to serve just two. Over the years we've discovered that scaling down a recipe isn't as simple as cutting the ingredients in half—cooking times, temperatures, and equipment need to be adapted as well. This comprehensive cookbook takes the guesswork out of cooking for two so you can be sure that anything you want to make—from Classic Beef Stew to Lasagna to a mini batch of Fudgy Brownies or a Fluffy Yellow Layer Cake—will come out right (and perfectly proportioned) every time. We'll also give you options when you're short on time. 150 recipes, including Chicken Saltimbocca and Pan-Seared Rib-Eye Steaks with Sweet-Tart Red Wine Sauce, can be on the table in 30 minutes or less. For those times when you want healthier fare, we've provided more than 100 recipes labeled "Light" such as Provencal Vegetable Soup and Poached Shrimp Salad with Avocado and Grapefruit, each with nutritional information listed in an easy-to-read chart in the back of the book. And we include chapters on for-two slow cooking, grilling, and baking pies, quick breads, cakes, and cookies. A 25-page manual teaches the basics of cooking for two, including clever shopping strategies to reduce waste, smart storage tricks help extend freshness of key ingredients, and our picks for the most useful kitchen equipment for any two-person household.

<p>The Ketogenic diet is a high-fat, moderate-protein, low-carb diet originally developed to reduce the frequency of seizures in epilepsy patients. More recently, however, it has found a mainstream audience who view it as a real foods-based diet with weight loss and other overall health benefits. By focusing on dietary fat and ketones instead of simple carb-derived glucose as a primary energy source, the body becomes more efficient at burning body fat and is spared the conversion of leftover glucose calories into body fat.</p><p><i>The Deliciously Keto Cookbook</i> offers 150 deliciously satisfying recipes for breakfasts, appetizers, snacks, mains, desserts, and sides, all designed to help readers set and reach personal health and weight loss goals. The recipes follow a high fat/low protein/ultra low carb ratio designed to induce readers into a state of nutritional ketosis where they are consistently burning ketones (fat molecules) for energy instead of glucose (carbohydrates). Additionally, readers who have attained health goals and are looking to follow a longer-term maintenance program will benefit from simple modifications for each recipe that enable them to adjust the nutrient ratios to a slightly lower fat and slightly higher carbohydrate ratio.</p><p>Also included:</p><p>+ Tips and tricks for cooking keto-friendly dishes, eating out on the keto diet, and managing the side effects, including the temporary "keto" flu that accompanies the induction of ketosis.<br />+ Helpful modications that enable readers to modify recipes from a high fat induction phase to a moderate fat maintenance phase.</p>
