Simple, stunning recipes for home cooks, from the writer of the "Repertoire" column for the San Francisco Chronicle

Home cooks don't need dozens of cookbooks or hundreds of recipes. They just need one good book, with about 75 trustworthy, versatile, and above all, delicious recipes that can stand alone or be mixed-and-matched into extraordinary meals.

That's what Repertoire is: Real recipes, from real life, that really work.

After nearly two decades in the kitchen and writing about food, this is the way San Francisco Chronicle writer Jessica Battilana really cooks at home. These are her best recipes, the ones she relies on the most--for a quick weeknight supper, a special dinner party, when a friend drops by for a drink and a snack, for the chocolate cake that never fails. The knowledge, freedom, and flexibility that comes from cooking these recipes is all you really need in the kitchen.

With a salad for every season, pantry pastas, many meatballs, chewy cookies, and more, Repertoireputs the perfect dish for every occasion within reach.

Kindness & Salt

Doug Crowell, Ryan Angulo
Authors:
Doug Crowell, Ryan Angulo

There are two ingredients that make a good meal great: Kindness and salt. Paying attention to salt as you cook, means paying attention to flavor and dedicating yourself to bringing out the best in your ingredients. Cooking with kindness means that you care deeply about the people you're feeding. Doug Crowell and Ryan Angulo, the owner and chef of Brooklyn hotspots French Louie and Buttermilk Channel, believe good food can be this simple. While kindness may not be on any ingredient list, you'll feel it upon walking into their restaurants and within every recipe they create. And salt-well, they'll teach you how to do it correctly. (You always need more than you think.)In their first cookbook, KINDNESS & SALT, Doug and Ryan share more than 100 recipes for the home cook interested in making casual, quality food and drinks to share with loved ones. With recipes like: Lamb Chops with Charred Sugar Snap Peas and Warm Vinaigrette, Buttermilk Fried Chicken with Cheddar Waffles with Black Vinegar Maple Syrup, Classic French Toast and Pancakes, Lemon-Poppy Buttermilk Cake, KINDNESS & SALT focuses on simple ingredients, classic techniques, and signature bistro dishes done exquisitely, at home. Plus it includes lots of tips on stocking a bar, how to choose and handle cheese and unfussy wines, how to store fresh fish and vegetables, and how to make the perfect Bloody Mary that drinks like a meal, and more. Crowell and Angulo expertly guide cooks toward making their best meals--with all the flair of Brooklyn cuisine at its best, and the deep simplicity of food made with love and care.

Authors:
Gesine Bullock-Prado

Baking and decorating a cake can be a challenge, and when the end result doesn't taste as good as it looks, a big disappointment! Author and seasoned baker Gesine Bullock-Prado has perfected a method for creating eye-catching spectacular cakes that measure up. Her step-by-step instruction for baking, piping, and making decorations make each bit manageable, whether it's baking layers ahead of time and freezing, or taking the time to crank out a slew of gorgeous frosting flowers that hold beautifully in the freezer until you need them. Her aim is to present a 'system' for cake decorating that carries you through from baking to finishing, no step skipped or left unexplained. Just remember BaDASS: Bake ahead, Dam, Assemble, Smooth coat, and Spruce it up. The layers are as easy as box mixes, and the smoothing and decorating instructions work the first time (not a thousand passes later). From custom shapes to complement a party theme to ultra-gorgeous cakes for special occasions, it's all within reach.

Authors:
Sonal Ved

There are more varieties of cooking in India than in the rest of the entire world, yet American cookbooks tend to focus only on what's familiar here. Tiffin encompasses recipes from across the continent, where flavors vary from coconut and tamarind to curry and masala and everything in between. In the West, the cuisine is influenced by Portuguese flavors and the sea, with rich crab curries. In the North, meat dishes, such as tandori chicken and mutton stew, warm the body on a cold Himalayan night. Delhi is known for street delicacies such as flat breads and kababs. And throughout the country are Persian, Thai, and British influences as well.A tiffin is a traditional Indian lunch pail that holds homemade curries, vegetables, rice, and spicy meats. Our expansive cookbook open it up to show the diverse flavors from all of the regions of India, from spicy fish curries to rich dumplings to spring rolls to butter chicken. The 500 recipes are organized by region and then into subcategories of meats, seafood, vegetarian, and desserts. With vibrant illustrations that represent the regional style and mouth-watering photography of the dishes, Indian cooking has never been more accessible or well-respresented.

In BAKING WITH STEEL, readers will learn how to achieve restaurant-quality baked goods, make grilled meats a la plancha, and make pizza crust with a crunch and char home cooks have previously only dreamed of. Above all, this book is the companion book to the tool that is quickly becoming a must-have item for serious cooks and bakers, one that puts niche pizza stones and skillet pans to shame.
