<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • With 101 recipes for home chefs of all abilities, this cookbook makes a perfect graduation gift for those facing the real world (and feeding themselves) for the first time.<br /></b><br />My name is Alton Brown, and I wrote this book. It’s my first in a few years because I’ve been a little busy with TV stuff and interwebs stuff and live stage show stuff. Sure, I’ve been cooking, but it’s been mostly to feed myself and people in my immediate vicinity—which is really what a cook is supposed to do, right? Well, one day I was sitting around trying to organize my recipes, and I realized that I should put them into a personal collection. One thing led to another, and here’s <i>EveryDayCook.</i> There’s still plenty of science and hopefully some humor in here (my agent says that’s my “wheelhouse”), but unlike in my other books, a lot of attention went into the photos, which were all taken on my iPhone (take that, Instagram) and are suitable for framing. As for the recipes, which are arranged by time of day, they’re pretty darned tasty. Highlights include: <br /> <br /> <b>• Morning: </b>Buttermilk Lassi, Overnight Coconut Oats, Nitrous Pancakes <br /> <b>• Coffee Break: </b>Cold Brew Coffee, Lacquered Bacon, Seedy Date Bars<br /> <b>• Noon: </b>Smoky the Meat Loaf, Grilled Cheese Grilled Sandwich, “EnchiLasagna” or “Lasagnalada”<br /> <b>• Afternoon: </b>Green Grape Cobbler, Crispy Chickpeas, Savory Greek Yogurt Dip<br /> <b>• Evening: </b>Bad Day Bitter Martini, Mussels-O-Miso, Garam Masalmon Steaks<br /> <b>• Anytime: </b>The General’s Fried Chicken, Roasted Chile Salsa, Peach Punch Pops<br /> <b>• Later: </b>Cider House Fondue, Open Sesame Noodles, Chocapocalypse Cookie<br /> <br /> So let’s review: 101 recipes with mouthwatering photos, a plethora of useful insights on methods, tools, and ingredients all written by an “award-winning and influential educator and tastemaker.” That last part is from the PR office. Real people don’t talk like that.

<b>The most important, consulted, and enjoyed Italian cookbook of all time, from the woman who<i> </i>introduced Americans to a whole new world of Italian food. </b><br /><br /><i>Essentials of Italian Cooking</i> is a culinary bible for anyone looking to master the art of Italian cooking, bringing together Marcella Hazan’s most beloved books, <i>The Classic Italian Cook Book</i> and <i>More Classic Italian Cooking</i>, in a single volume, updated and expanded with new entries and 50 new recipes. Designed as a basic manual for cooks of all levels of expertise—from beginners to accomplished professionals—it offers both an accessible and comprehensive guide to techniques and ingredients and a collection of the most delicious recipes from the Italian repertoire. As home cooks who have used Marcella’s classic books for years (and whose copies are now splattered and worn) know, there is no one more gifted at teaching us just what we need to know about the taste and texture of a dish and how to achieve it, and there is no one more passionate and inspiring about authentic Italian food.
