<b>Is there anything more satisfying than a well-made Asian dumpling?

Talk about the luck of the Irish! One of the most beloved of Irish institutions (there are more than one thousand in Dublin alone), the traditional pub has served generations as the venue for local gossip, sporting news, a ceilidh or two, literary soirees, real estate deals, political debates, revolutionary plots, and, lest we forget, for knocking back a pint of Guinness or a "ball of malt." The food's not bad either—as <em>The Irish Pub Cookbook</em> so deliciously demonstrates. It's a celebration of over 70 pub classics: thick soups and stews; savory tarts and meaty pies; big bowls of salad (times change!); and desserts of the seconds-are-always-appropriate variety. There's shepherd's pie, fish and chips, seafood chowder, and whiskey bread pudding for those with a taste for the quintessential. Contemporary specialties such as Bacon, Blue Cheese, and Courgette Soup; Salmon Cakes with Dill and Wine Sauce; Braised Lambshanks with Red Currants; and White Chocolate Terrine spotlight modern Irish cooking's richly deserved acclaim. Complete with pub photos, history, and lore, nobody leaves hungry when <em>The Irish Pub Cookbook</em> is in the kitchen.

<b>GARLIC AND SAPPHIRES</b> is Ruth Reichl's riotous account of the many disguises she employs to dine anonymously. There is her stint as Molly Hollis, a frumpy blond with manicured nails and an off-beige Armani suit that Ruth takes on when reviewing Le Cirque. The result: her famous double review of the restaurant: first she ate there as Molly; and then as she was coddled and pampered on her visit there as Ruth, New York Times food critic.<br /><br />What is even more remarkable about Reichl's spy games is that as she takes on these various disguises, she finds herself changed not just superficially, but in character as well. She gives a remarkable account of how one's outer appearance can very much influence one's inner character, expectations, and appetites.<br /><br />As she writes, "Every restaurant is a theater . . . even the modest restaurants offer the opportunity to become someone else, at least for a little while." <b>GARLIC AND SAPPHIRES</b> is a reflection on personal identity and role playing in the decadent, epicurean theaters of the restaurant world.

<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? How do you take the temperature of a bone-in roast? Why roast fresh fruit? How (and why) do you tie up a tenderloin? These kitchen-tested recipes offer all the necessary answers and insights. 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. With weeknight-friendly options like Pan-Roasted Chicken with Shallot-Thyme Sauce and Oven-Roasted Salmon Fillets with Tangerine and Ginger Relish and crowd-pleasing one-pan meals like Roasted Halibut with Red Potatoes, Corn, and Andouille and Pepper-Crusted Pork Tenderloin Roast with Asparagus and Goat Cheese, there is no shortage of accessible, family-friendly dishes to choose from.
