The ultimate collection of recipes to make real food, real fast--with hundreds of ways to cook smarter, not harder.

The Kitchen Shortcut Bible is for all of us who love to cook, but never seem to have enough time. Rather than a book of way-too-clever hacks, this is a collection of more than 200 ingenious recipes that supercharge your time in the kitchen without sacrificing high quality or fresh flavor.

Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough come to this, their definitive guide to shortcut cooking, after twenty-nine cookbooks and decades of experience in the kitchen. Not only do they know about putting great meals on the table, they also know that most people's nightly question isn't "what's for dinner," but "what's for dinner in the next half hour?"

They've got risotto in minutes, no-fry chicken parm, and melted ice cream pound cake. But these recipes aren't merely "semi-homemade." They've also got slow cooker confits, no-boil stuffed cabbage, and a fine holiday turkey straight out of the freezer, as well as new ways to think about sheet pan suppers, Asian noodle dishes without a wok, and no-churn ice creams. And no MacGuyver-ing either! There are lots of new ways to use the kitchen tools you already own, imparting concrete shortcuts that save time andmake something good into something great.

When dinner is a problem to be solved, this is your cheat sheet.

Deepi Ahluwalia, Stef Ferrari, Jessica Olah

For centuries, professional cooking was a job exclusively for men. As a result, most histories of food and cooking, even today, are dominated by male achievements. But while historians weren't paying attention, women all over the world have been quietly changing the way we eat, cook, and dine out, inventing standardized measures, dishwashers, coffee filters, and even Champagne and buffalo wings!In A WOMAN'S PLACE, these hidden figures of culinary history have the chance to tell their stories. Stories like that of Leah Chase, whose New Orleans restaurant sheltered and fed the civil rights movement, or Madhur Jaffrey, who became an accidental celebrity chef teaching English and American home cooks how to cook Indian food.With lively illustrations depicting the women in scenes from their everyday lives, and stories ranging around the globe and across centuries, A WOMAN'S PLACE is the perfect gift for the foodie, history lover, or groundbreaking woman or girl in your life.

The Essential Instant Pot Cookbook

Coco Morante
Authors:
Coco Morante

The Instant Pot was first created in 2010 as seven cooking gadgets in one: pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, fryer, yoghurt maker and warmer. It has fourteen built-in smart programs: Soup, Meat/Stew, Bean/Chilli, Poultry, Sauté, Steam, Rice, Porridge, Multigrain, Slow Cook, Keep-Warm, Yoghurt, Pasteurise and Fermenting.Over the last six months Instant Pots have become a viral sensation in the UK, achieving what the Daily Mail has called 'cult-like' status. Despite already selling many thousands in the USA (one machine has 24,000 reviews on Amazon.com), Amazon.co.uk (with 1,500 reviews for the same machine) quickly ran out of stock of the device, which sells for under £100. Pinterest is flooded with the various recipes you can make in the device, from stews to cheesecake.The Essential Instant Pot Cookbook provides plenty of failsafe recipes such as a whole roasted chicken with mushroom gravy and decadent New York cheesecake, also a hearty array of contemporary meals, such as Greek-style Gigantes beans with fresh feta, braised pork loin with balsamic vinegar and caramelized onions, and much, much more!

Andris Lagsdin, Jessie Oleson Moore

Make the best baked goods-pretzels, pizzas, pies-you've ever made- along with pancakes, slab ice cream, and much, much more.Most people know the landmark Modernist Cuisine books for their groundbreaking scientific culinary techniques. But the most relevant finding to come from their lab is that the thermodynamics of home baking can be transformed by a simple slab of steel. That fact led Andris Lagsdin, a former chef who had returned to work at his family's steel manufacturing company, to create the Baking Steel, a plate of metal that serves as supercharged pizza stone, griddle, slab ice cream maker, and more.In this book, you'll find recipes and innovative techniques for a truly transformative piece of kitchen equipment. 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.

Scraps, Wilt & Weeds

Authors:
Mads Refslund, Tama Matsuoka Wong

SCRAPS, WILT & WEEDS features 100 recipes by Mads Refslund, one of the initial partners at Noma, the world-renowned Danish restaurant, using local ingredients in a sustainable, no-waste fashion. Using scraps from vegetables, fruits and animal proteins--food that would normally go to waste--Refslund creates beautiful and accessible recipes for the home cook without sacrificing anything to flavor. He uses 100% of the ingredient or as close as possible, like potato peels, cauliflower stems, or fish skins, but also ingredients that are passed over as too young, like green strawberries, or too old, like stale bread, wrinkly potatoes or bolted herbs. Refslund shares easy-to-follow recipes like: Carrot Tops Pesto, Roasted Cauliflower Stalks with Mushrooms and Brie, Pork Ribs Glazed with Overripe Pear Sauce, Crispy Salmon Skin Puffs with Horseradish-Buttermilk Dip, and Beer and Bread porridge with Salted Caramel Ice Cream. In addition to delicious ingredient-focused recipes, the book contains informational sidebars and stories, insight into the parts of food we often waste, and a section on how to use leftovers, plus 100 beautiful photographs that express Refslund' passion and respect for ingredients, nature and the land.
