The Tuscan Year recounts the daily life and food preparation of a family living on a farm in Tuscany. Elizabeth Romer chronicles each season's activities month by month: curing prosciutto and making salame in January, planting and cheesemaking in March, harvesting and threshing corn in July, hunting for wild muchrooms in September, and grape crushing in Ocober. Scattered throughout this lovely calendar are recipes--fresh bread and olive oil, grilled mushrooms, broad beans with ham, trout with fresh tomatoes and basil, chicken grilled with fresh sage and garlic, and apples baked with butter, sugar, and lemon peel, among many others. Alive with the rhythms of country tradition, The Tuscan Year is a treasure for the armchair traveler as well as the cook.
All your favorite Chinese dishes are here -- Peking Ravioli; Cold Noodles, Szechuan Style; Moo Shi Pork; and Sweet and Sour Shrimp-along with new classics -- Shanghai-style Pork Chops; Crystal Shrimp; and Steamed Salmon with Black Beans, And because the Chinese don't use a lot of oil when they cook at home, these dishes are far lower in fat than Chinese food served in restaurants. These recipes rely on stir-frying more than deep-frying, steaming more than roasting, and on readily available supermarket ingredients, and they use far less meat in favor of more fresh vegetables.
If you love Chinese food for its quick cooking, economy, taste, nutrition, and variety, then you'll love having Helen Chen by your side.
Walk into any restaurant or trattoria in Italy and you'll be greeted by antipasto tables laden with platters of colorful salads, tender seafood dishes, regional salamis and cheeses, and fresh vegetables prepared in every way imaginable. With this inspiring collection of two hundred versatile, simple-to-prepare recipes, Michele Scicolone recreates these antipasto tables at home. The Antipasto Table includes many traditional favorites passed down by the author's family as well as new interpretations based on her own travels in Italy, and even some antipasti new to this country.
Imagine a table of hot antipasti -- fresh mozzarella rolled in bread crumbs and fried until crisp outside and melted within or grilled calamari with oregano and white wine. Or sample the cold dishes -- Sicilian eggplant salad or trout marinated in olive oil, vinegar, and sage. Bread-based antipasti include taralli, fennel-laced biscuits, perfect with a glass of red wine; and bruschetta, grilled country bread topped with fresh tomatoes and herbs or Gorgonzola and pine nuts.
This marvelous cookbook also features special sections on the art of preparing vegetables and selecting the proper wines to serve with antipasti. The Antipasto Table highlights the foods that make Italian cuisine so wonderfully appealing.
Clotilde Dusoulier is a twenty-seven-year-old Parisian who adores sharing her love of all things food-related--recipes, inspirations, restaurant experiences, and above all the pleasure of cooking with the fresh ingredients found in her local Montmartre shops. But her infatuation with food was born not in her mother's Parisian kitchen, but in San Francisco, where she moved after college and discovered a new world of tastes. When she returned to her beloved France, her culinary exploits inspired her popular and critically acclaimed blog, ChocolateandZucchini.com.In her first book, Dusoulier provides a glimpse into the life of a young Parisian as she savors all that the city has to offer and shares her cooking philosophy in the form of more than 75 recipes that call for healthy ingredients (such as zucchini) and more indulgent tastes (such as chocolate). The Los Angeles Times calls her recipes "simple, charming, and fun." Appetizers such as Cumin Cheese Puffs, sandwiches and tarts like Tomato Tatin, soups like Chestnut and Mushroom, main dishes including Mustard Chicken Stew, and desserts like Chocolate and Caramel Tart can all be found alongside menus for entertaining, as well as tips for throwing cocktail or dinner parties with French flair. Chocolate & Zucchini is the book for anyone who has journeyed to Paris and can still recall the delicious flavors and aromas--or for those of us who only dream about them.
