Karen Adler, Judith Fertig

Karen Adler, Judith Fertig

This new title from the authors of The Gardener and the Grill is backyard grilling like never before, with an emphasis on the fruits and vegetables usually neglected in favor of steak or barbecued chicken. Each recipe makes the most of seasonal American ingredients and flavors like bourbon, bacon, blackberries, country ham, maple syrup, pomegranates, craft beer, pecans, and sweet onions. In the winter, you can make Ember-Roasted Brussels Sprouts basted with browned butter or Barbecuer's White Bean Cassoulet, and in the warmer months, Planked Chicken Breasts with Chile Lime Sofrito, Root Beer Ribs, and Grilled Banana Splits. And with inventive techniques such as ember roasting and flavored wood smoke, each recipe is perfect for date nights, family dinners, and tailgate parties. Celebrate the magic of flame-kissed food on the grill all year round, with vegetables straight from the American garden.

Deep Run Roots

Vivian Howard
Authors:
Vivian Howard

Filled with the stories, traditions, ingredients, and recipes that define and celebrate the South, Deep Run Roots is the definitive record of modern Southern food through Vivian Howard's eyes. It weaves the story of her life through twenty-five chapters on the ingredients that make the food of Eastern North Carolina--and all of the South--so special, and shares more than 225 classic and contemporary recipes along the way. There is a dish in every chapter for cooks of every level of skill and interest. With tradition as the starting point, the recipes grow in complexity from simple things to make on a weeknight to more elaborate dishes served at Vivian's restaurants. In the summer, when her walk-in is flooded with blueberries, she makes Blueberry BBQ Chicken, Crispy Corn Cakes with Blueberry Corn Salsa, and Buttermilk Blueberry Sherbet. In the winter, when crates of turnips overrun the restaurant, she makes Seared Sea Scallops, Turnip and Butternut Agrodolce, Cider Braised Pork Shank with Roast Turnip Gremolata, and Potlikker Soup and Sweet Potato Cream. This book is Vivian's love letter to the South, preserving and reinterpreting the traditional foodways of her home.

Braise

Michael Ruhlman
Authors:
Michael Ruhlman

According to James Beard-award winning cookbook author Michael Ruhlman, "Braising is what cooking is truly about--transformation. You start with a tough, often inexpensive, cut of meat, and through your care and knowledge as a cook, you turn it into something tender and succulent and exquisite. That is true cooking, cooking that engages both mind and soul." Among the recipes featured in this second book in Ruhlmans's new "how-to" series are Moroccan Lamb Tagine, Classic Yankee Pot Roast, Mexican Pork and Posole Stew with Dried Chilis, Braised Fennel, and a Corned Beef and Cabbage Braise. As with the other books in this line, practical information about essential tools and staple pantry items will be outlined,along with straightforward and clearly presented advice and dozens of color photographs by Donna Turner Ruhlman showcasing both finished dishes and step-by-step cooking techniques.
