*OBSERVER FOOD MONTHLY'S #1 FOOD BOOK OF 2018* 'This is a cookbook everyone should have in their kitchen. I will certainly have it in mine.' - Ruth Rogers From Joseph Trivelli, co-head chef of the world-renowned River Cafe, comes the ultimate classic guide to laid-back, comforting Italian food. Trivelli first learned to cook watching his Italian grandmother transform a few simple ingredients into something mouth-watering within their family kitchen. In this, his first book, he brings up-to-date all the traditional Italian food he grew up with alongside his own inventive creations. Featuring over 150 original recipes that cater for quick dinners right up to family feasts, Joe's focus is on fewer ingredients, exquisitely prepared. With chapters on pasta, fish, meat, vegetables and baked dishes, these are recipes sympathetic to the home cook - easy to throw together but look and taste incredible every time. Beautifully designed with evocative photography throughout, this is the Italian cookbook every modern kitchen needs. *** 'This is a book I shall be referring to very often. All the recipes are the real classic ones and yet they all have a touch of originality which gives them a new and welcome dimension. Bravo Joe.' - Anna del Conte 'I still haven't met a chef who has such a genuine love of food and its role in bringing people together.' - Stephen Harris, The Sportsman 'A truly personal collection of inspired recipes: all at once clever, quirky, thoughtful and witty. A joy.' - Simon Hopkinson 'Already one of my favourite cookery writers, this is next-level Joe Trivelli. Seasoned with good writing, saturated in great recipes, there is so much to love about this book. Like its writer, The Modern Italian Cook is a quiet triumph. I love it.' - Allan Jenkins 'Wonderful.' - Giorgio Locatelli 'Excellent . . . the writing is simple, clean, humble and evocative; the recipes are special and all seem so delicious.' - Itamar Srulovich, Honey & Co
With a uniquely balanced combination of salty, sweet, sour, and spicy flavors, Thai food burst onto Los Angeles's culinary scene in the 1980s. Flavors of Empire examines the rise of Thai food and the way it shaped the racial and ethnic contours of Thai American identity and community. Full of vivid oral histories and new material from the archives, this book explores the factors that made foodways central to the Thai American experience. Starting with American Cold War intervention in Thailand, Mark Padoongpatt traces how informal empire allowed U.S. citizens to discover Thai cuisine abroad and introduce it inside the United States. When Thais arrived in Los Angeles, they reinvented and repackaged Thai food in various ways to meet the rising popularity of the cuisine in urban and suburban spaces. Padoongpatt opens up the history, politics, and tastes of Thai food for the first time, all while demonstrating how race emerges in seemingly mundane and unexpected places.
In 1975, Anne Willan, a culinary icon who, along with Julia Child, Jacque Pepin, James Beard, and others, launched the modern culinary industry, founded cole 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 B chamel 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.
By the time he was twenty-seven years old, Kwame Onwuachi (winner of the 2019 James Beard Foundation Award for Rising Star Chef of the Year) had opened—and closed—one of the most talked about restaurants in America. He had launched his own catering company with twenty thousand dollars that he made from selling candy on the subway, yet he’d been told he would never make it on television because his cooking wasn’t “Southern” enough. In this inspiring memoir about the intersection of race, fame, and food, he shares the remarkable story of his culinary coming-of-age.
Growing up in the Bronx, as a boy Onwuachi was sent to rural Nigeria by his mother to “learn respect.” However, the hard-won knowledge gained in Africa was not enough to keep him from the temptation and easy money of the streets when he returned home. But through food, he broke out of a dangerous downward spiral, embarking on a new beginning at the bottom of the culinary food chain as a chef on board a Deepwater Horizon cleanup ship, before going on to train in the kitchens of some of the most acclaimed restaurants in the country and appearing as a contestant on Top Chef.
Onwuachi’s love of food and cooking remained a constant throughout, even when he found the road to success riddled with potholes. As a young chef, he was forced to grapple with just how unwelcoming the world of fine dining can be for people of color, and his first restaurant, the culmination of years of planning, shuttered just months after opening. A powerful, heartfelt, and shockingly honest story of chasing your dreams—even when they don’t turn out as you expected—Notes from a Young Black Chef is one man’s pursuit of his passions, despite the odds.

"Leah Chase . . . the Queen of Creole Cuisine . . . is one of the hottest chefs in town." -The National Culinary Review "While reading the cookbook, I could not only 'hear' Leah talking to me about her food, heritage and family, but I could smell and taste the flavor from the great recipes and the great food that has made Dooky Chase's my favorite restaurant." -Joe Cahn, executive director, New Orleans School of Cooking As the owner and chef extraordinaire of the popular Dooky Chase's Restaurant in New Orleans, Leah Chase has distinguished herself as a community and civic leader through her dedicated involvement with numerous charities and organizations. The preeminent chef in the Dooky Chase kitchen, Mrs. Chase has established a reputation as one of the best purveyors of Creole cuisine in the nation. Leah Chase started out at the age of eighteen working in a laundry in the French Quarter, but soon found a job at the Colonial Restaurant on Charter Street. It was the first time she had ever seen the inside of a restaurant. In 1946, she married Dooky Chase, Jr., and shortly after entered his family's restaurant business, which would grow into the present day Dooky Chase's. Her husband's mother was running the restaurant, and as Leah says, "Black people had no other place to go, so she had a captive audience." Over the years, as Leah's expertise and popularity grew, she was able to exert more influence upon the cuisine and atmosphere at Dooky Chase's. She successfully grafted her country roots, both in ethics and food, to the black Creole tradition of the city, and soon the restaurant became a reflection of Leah herself, and of the black community as a whole.

For many decades, we have treated them as collectables - often fetching thousands at auction and in rare-book catalogues - or as quaint survivors, while ignoring their true history or what they have to tell us about the Georgians.
