Experience the enduring pleasure of traditional French cooking with over 60 uncomplicated recipes for every home cook. French cookery is one of the best in the world, and with so many dishes gaining a new wave of popularity, you'll see it appear time and again on the menus of bustling bistros and fine dining restaurants. Yet, the one thing people often get wrong about this delicious cuisine, is that it's complicated and can't be recreated at home. However, you may be surprised that the ingredients, though good-quality and flavourful, are often fewer in number than you'd actually think. This is the beauty of French cooking - what basic ingredients are gathered, are transformed into something utterly tasty and delightful. In Bistro you'll find no shortage of classic dishes. From Appetizers and Soups to Meat and Seafood recipes, on to Salads and Sides right through to Desserts, there are gems to be found for everyone to enjoy. Start your dinner with a selection of Crudites, a Vegetable Bouillabaisse or Tuna Carpaccio. Move on to marvellous and mouth-watering mains such as a buttery Lemon Sole Meuniere, a veggie Ratatouille or a simple Steak & Frites. And if you have enough room for dessert, try a Vanilla Orange Souffle, a gorgeous Tarte Tatin or some mini Petit Fours. For anyone who loves good food and wants to master the everyday and moreish recipes found at the heart of French cookery, Bistro will be your gentle guide to perfecting its traditional yet trouble-free dishes.

In 1975, Anne Willan, a culinary icon who, along with Julia Child, Jacque Pepin, James Beard, and others, launched the modern culinary industry, founded Ecole de Cuisine La Varenne in Paris and educated some of today's most notable chefs - among them Steve Raichlen, Gale Gand, Virgina Willis, Martha Holmberg, and Alexis Guarnaschelli. Upon enrolling at La Varenne, all students received a helpful and easy reference tool: La Varenne Basic Recipes. The booklet was based on chef Albert Jorant's belief that "there are only fifty basic recipes in the culinary repertoire, and all other dishes can be made from them." Edited by Anne Willan, La Varenne Basic Recipes was fifty-five staple bound pages with a card stock cover and it was a treasure-trove of essential recipes for any aspiring chef. The recipes included: -Stocks - 10 recipes: including Veal, Chicken, Fish and Glazes -Sauces - 17 recipes: from Brown to Bechamel to Hollandaise and Mayonnaise -Pastry and Cakes - 8 recipes including Pie, Sweet, Choux & Puff Pastry as well as Sponge Cake -Creams and Icings - 7 recipes including Butter Cream Frosting and Pastry Cream -Meringues - 3 recipes -Desserts and Cooking Sugar - 6 recipes including Ice Cream plus a Sugar Cooking Chart. Now, for the first time, the 50 essential recipes from the La Varenne curriculum are available to chefs, culinary students, and passionate cooking enthusiasts in Secrets from The La Varenne Kitchen. (It is important to note that this is not a book of finished dishes, though some recipes such as sherbet are complete in themselves. Rather it is a collection of the sauces, pastries and creams that go to make up a dish.) Above all, Secrets from the La Varenne Kitchen is a working tool, to fashion professional excellence. It is a practical book for practical cooks - both professional and home enthusiasts.

Colonial New England was awash in ales, beers, wines, cider and
spirits. Everyone from teenage farmworkers to our founding fathers
imbibed heartily and often. Tipples at breakfast, lunch, teatime
and dinner were the norm, and low-alcohol hard cider was sometimes
even a part of children's lives. This burgeoning cocktail culture
reflected the New World's abundance of raw materials: apples, sugar
and molasses, wild berries and hops. This plentiful drinking
sustained a slew of smoky taverns and inns--watering holes that
became vital meeting places and the nexuses of unrest as the
Revolution brewed. New England food and drinks writer Corin Hirsch
explores the origins and taste of the favorite potations of early
Americans and offers some modern-day recipes to revive them

Long before the era of the foodie, the little coal-mining town of Krebs set the standard for celebrating food in Oklahoma. Its reputation as the Sooner State's Little Italy began in the mid-1870s when Italian immigrants chased the coal boom to Pittsburg County, deep in the heart of the Choctaw Nation. After 150 years, Italians and Choctaw neighbors are now bound by pasta, homemade cheeses and sausages and native beer once brewed illegally in basement bathtubs and delivered by children from door to door. Stop by for a steak at GiaComo's, a Choc at Pete's Place, lamb fries at the Isle of Capri, gnocchi at Roseanna's or a gourd of caciocavallo at Lovera's--venues that have proven impervious to time and hardship.

If you've ever made jam or jelly at home, you know most recipes require more sugar than fruit--oftentimes 4 to 7 cups --causing many people to look for other ways to preserve more naturally and with less sugar. Pomona's Pectin is the answer to this canning conundrum. Unlike other popular pectins, which are activated by sugar, Pomona's is a sugar- and preservative-free citrus pectin that does not require sugar to jell. As a result, jams and jellies can be made with less, little, or no sugar at all and also require much less cooking time than traditional recipes, allowing you to create jams that are not only healthier and quicker to make, but filled with more fresh flavor If you haven't tried Pomona's already (prepare to be smitten ), you can easily find the pectin at your local natural foods store, Williams-Sonoma, or online.
In this first official Pomona's Pectin cookbook, you'll learn how to use this revolutionary product and method to create marmalades, preserves, conserves, jams, jellies, and more. From sweet offerings like Maple, Vanilla and Peach Jam to savory favorites like Red Pepper and Jalapeno Chutney, you'll find endless combinations sure to delight all year round
