New York a la Cart
By Alexandra Penfold, Siobhan Wallace
Divided into neighbourhood sections (Uptown, Midtown, Downtown, the Boroughs, etc.) New York a la Cart will spotlight the best of the Big Apple's cart cuisine, profiling 50 vendors and including their most popular recipes. There are terrific "only in New York" stories here: the IBM exec who quit his six-figure job to flip Belgian waffles, the banquet hall chef who followed his dreams from Bangladesh to 46th Street, the second generation souvlaki masters carrying on their family traditions, among many others. With full-colour photos that capture the local colour as well as the delicious food, New York a la Cart is a celebration of the food-cart scene , but most importantly, offers more than 60 recipes so that readers can make their favourite street food at home.
The Naked Foods Cook Book
By Margaret Floyd
Why go out to eat? Cooking at home is easy, healthy, delicious, and affordable-and with the right techniques and ingredients, preparing a home-cooked meal can be quicker than picking up take-out. Cook Naked, the anticipated follow-up cookbook to Margaret Floyd's Eat Naked, shows readers how they can create whole, organic, and fresh "naked" meals that maximize the natural nutritional value of food.Unlike commercially available prepared foods and restaurant dishes, naked meals contain no harmful additives, preservatives, or empty-calorie fillers. Because cooking naked is well-suited to people who need energy for busy lifestyles, this cookbook is organized around the time it takes for readers to prepare each type of dish: "in a rush" recipes take ten minutes or less, "every day" recipes take twenty minutes or less, and an "impress the neighbors" section offers more time-intensive recipe selections. Readers who seek to control the quality of ingredients and nutrients in their food will turn to this cookbook time and time again for affordable, naturally delicious meals they can feel good about eating and serving to others.
