Fresh Happy Tasty by Coxwell, Jane. (William Morrow Cookbooks,2013) [Hardcover]

“According to the calendar, summer is just around the corner.  Unfortunately, someone forgot to tell that to the weather up here in Wisconsin.  It might be early May but it still feels like March here in the Dairy State, with its gray, leaden skies, biting winds, and rain that feels like it is on the verge of turning back into snow.  Into this cold and dreary weather a small...” --Pete

Garde Manger

Garde Manger

“Chef Chuck Hughes is a Food Network star with at least 3 shows to his credit, my favorite being "Chuck's Eat the Street."  He is also one of a handful of chefs to defeat Bobby Flay on "Iron Chef: America."  But before that Chuck was a chef, in Montreal, and from his reputation, a pretty good one at that.   Back in 2010 Chuck authored a cookbook, "Garde Manger" in French...” --Pete

Rick Stein's India: In Search of the Perfect Curry: Recipes from my Indian Odyssey

Rick Stein's India: In Search of the Perfect Curry: Recipes from my Indian Odyssey

“Love Rick Stein! I've attended a couple of courses at his cookery school, and eaten in his restaurants in Padstow and in NSW, Australia. I've got to say, I'm getting weary of his Asian cookery travels, though. This is his second or even third series based in the region.   Rick Stein has one of those great talents to appear as an everyday bloke who you would be happy to have a glass...” --Waynus

Life, on the Line: A Chef's Story of Chasing Greatness, Facing Death, and Redefining the Way We Eat

Life, on the Line: A Chef's Story of Chasing Greatness, Facing Death, and Redefining the Way We Eat

“ Simply put, Life on the Line reveals the groundbreaking journey of Chef Grant Achatz in the world of molecular gastronomy.  The book is not a manifesto for the movement.  Rather, it focuses on the Chef himself, following his enthusiasm and excitement for cooking and flavor.  Despite his humble beginnings in his grandparents’ restaurant, or perhaps because of them, Chef Grant...” --BenRias

Umami: The Fifth Taste

Umami is described as a pleasant savory taste imparted by glutamate, a type of amino acid which occurs naturally in many foods including meat, fish, vegetables, and dairy products. As the taste of umami itself is subtle and blends well with other tastes to expand and round out flavors, most people don't recognize umami when they encounter it, but it plays an important role in making food...
