<b>A collection of authentic Italian family recipes from the Season 4 winner of <i>MasterChef</i>! </b><br />  <br /> Most of Italian chef Luca Manfe’s early memories, especially of family holidays, revolve around food. Passed down from his <i>nonnas</i>, these recipes reflect the warm, rustic flavors of Friuli, Italy: rich frico, risotto, and savory polenta. Also showcased are the lighter bites that pair perfectly with a glass of wine: crostini with ricotta and honey, or a tramezzini, the Italian version of English high-tea sandwiches. Standout desserts include the tiramisu he made with his mother when he was eight years old and his now-famous basil panna cotta that helped win him the title of MasterChef.<br />  <br /> “I love to teach,” says Manfe, “I’ll show you the fundamentals of fantastic Italian food, including homemade stock (I swear, it’s easy), pasta from scratch, and more. <i>My Italian Kitchen</i> is packed with the food that I love and that you and your family will love too.”

<p><strong>A <em>New York Times</em> Bestseller<br /><br />Winner of the James Beard Award for General Cooking and the IACP Cookbook of the Year Award<br /><br /><br /><br />"The one book you must have, no matter what you’re planning to cook or where your skill level falls."—<em>New York Times Book Review</em></strong></p><br /><p>Ever wondered how to pan-fry a steak with a charred crust and an interior that's perfectly medium-rare from edge to edge when you cut into it? How to make homemade mac 'n' cheese that is as satisfyingly gooey and velvety-smooth as the blue box stuff, but far tastier? How to roast a succulent, moist turkey (forget about brining!)—and use a foolproof method that works every time?</p><br /><p>As Serious Eats's culinary nerd-in-residence, J. Kenji López-Alt has pondered all these questions and more. In <em>The Food Lab</em>, Kenji focuses on the science behind beloved American dishes, delving into the interactions between heat, energy, and molecules that create great food. Kenji shows that often, conventional methods don’t work that well, and home cooks can achieve far better results using new—but simple—techniques. In hundreds of easy-to-make recipes with over 1,000 full-color images, you will find out how to make foolproof Hollandaise sauce in just two minutes, how to transform one simple tomato sauce into a half dozen dishes, how to make the crispiest, creamiest potato casserole ever conceived, and much more.</p>

<b>A food critic chronicles four years spent traveling with René Redzepi, the renowned chef of Noma, in search of the most tantalizing flavors the world has to offer.</b><br /><b> </b><br /><b>“Gordinier takes us into the fabulously obsessive realm of the world’s most fascinating chef—and he does it with the voice of a poet.”—Ruth Reichl, author of <i>Save Me the Plums</i></b><br /> <br /><i>Hungry</i> is a book about not only the hunger for food, but for risk, for reinvention, for creative breakthroughs, and for connection. Feeling stuck in his work and home life, writer Jeff Gordinier happened into a fateful meeting with Danish chef René Redzepi, whose restaurant, Noma, has been called the best in the world. A restless perfectionist, Redzepi was at the top of his game but was looking to tear it all down, to shutter his restaurant and set out for new places, flavors, and recipes.<br /> <br />This is the story of the subsequent four years of globe-trotting culinary adventure, with Gordinier joining Redzepi as his Sancho Panza. In the jungle of the Yucatán peninsula, Redzepi and his comrades go off-road in search of the perfect taco. In Sydney, they forage for sea rocket and sandpaper figs in suburban parks and on surf-lashed beaches. On a boat in the Arctic Circle, a lone fisherman guides them to what may or may not be his secret cache of the world’s finest sea urchins. And back in Copenhagen, the quiet canal-lined city where Redzepi started it all, he plans the resurrection of his restaurant on the unlikely site of a garbage-filled lot. Along the way, readers meet Redzepi’s merry band of friends and collaborators, including acclaimed chefs such as Danny Bowien, Kylie Kwong, Rosio Sánchez, David Chang, and Enrique Olvera.<br /><i> </i><br /><i>Hungry</i> is a memoir, a travelogue, a portrait of a chef, and a chronicle of the moment when daredevil cooking became the most exciting and groundbreaking form of artistry.<br /><br /><b>Praise for </b><i><b>Hungry</b></i><br /><br />“In <i>Hungry,</i> Gordinier invokes such playful and lush prose that the scents of mole, chiles and even lingonberry juice waft off the page.”<b>—<i>Time</i></b><br /><br />“This wonderful book is really about the adventures of <i>two</i> men: a great chef and a great journalist. <i>Hungry</i> is a feast for the senses, filled with complex passion and joy, bursting with life. Not only did Jeff Gordinier make me want to jump on the next flight (to Mexico, Copenhagen, Sydney) in search of the perfect meal, but he also reminded me to stop and savor the ride.”<b>—Dani Shapiro, author of <i>Inheritance</i></b>
