Ruhlman's How to Roast

Michael Ruhlman
Authors:
Michael Ruhlman

As an award-winning cookbook author, food writer and online culinary expert, Michael Ruhlman has developed a reputation for providing lucid, no-nonsense cooking advice as sharp as a good chef's knife. In this first in a new series of books focusing on cooking methods, Ruhlman explores one of the most fundamental cooking techniques - roasting. Humankind has been roasting for millennia. The term originally referred to cooking over an open fire, usually on some kind of spit, and has evolved to describe cooking of meat or vegetables or even fruit in an oven, a 'dry heat' (and usually high-heat) method of making things irresistibly appetising. 'Of all our cooking terms,' Ruhlman writes, 'sautéed, grilled, poached and broiled, I believe roasted is the most evocative adjective we can attach to our food, conjuring as it does ideas of deep rich flavours and delicious browning.' RUHLMAN'S HOW TO ROAST combines practical advice - what tools you need, staple ingredients to have on hand, how to get the most out of your oven - with 20 original and mouthwatering recipes, chosen to showcase a wide range of raosting methods and results, from 'The Icon' (roast chicken), to Monkfish Roasted with Tomatoes and Basil, to Roasted Peaches with Mint Creme Fraiche. Dozens of colour photographs offer step-by-step illustration as well as finished-dish showpieces.

Maya Angelou

At one time, I described myself as a cook, a driver, and a writer. I no longer drive, but I still do write and I do still cook. And having reached the delicious age of eighty-one, I realize that I have been feeding other people and eating for a long time. I have been cooking nearly all my life, so I have developed some philosophies.'With her second cookbook, Maya Angelou turns her attention to good food, well-made and eaten in moderation, and gives us time-tested recipes along with intimate autobiographical sketches of how they came to be. Packed with delicious dishes here can be eaten in small portions, many times a day and, more importantly, converted into other mouth-watering incarnations. Great Food, All Day Long is an essential reference for everyone who wants to eat more healthily and joyfully - and a delightful peek into the kitchen and heart of a remarkable woman.

Music, Food And Love

Guo Yue, Clare Farrow
Authors:
Guo Yue, Clare Farrow

Music, Food and Love conveys the vivid experiences of a boy with a passion for music and cooking who grew up in Beijing before and during the Chinese Cultural Revolution. For him, music and food are equally important. The youngest of six children, Guo Yue recalls his childhood at the heart of a close-knit family of musicians living beside a Beijing alley. He draws the reader into a world where music is everywhere - even in the rhythmic chopping sounds of the kitchen. We follow Yue as he explores Beijing, watching others and learning through imitation, until he finally leaves for the West. This beautifully-written and evocative memoir highlights how, despite poverty and repressed times, cooking family dishes was a life-affirming experience, symbolising freedom of expression. He shares with readers a few delicious traditional recipes which have been passed on in his family and among friends. These are based on a few simple ingredients, a natural approach to taste, colour and texture, and an innate love of good food.
