51 .) Almonds, Anchovies and Pancetta: A Vegetarian Cookbook, Kind of written by Cal Peternell

Almonds, Anchovies and Pancetta: A Vegetarian Cookbook, Kind of

Lists It Appears On:

  • Atlanta Journal-Constitution
  • PureWow
  • WBUR

Celebrated chef and home cook Cal Peternell likes to eat today the way people have been eating forever: with vegetables at the center of the plate, seasoned with a little bit of meat or fish to make a meal savory and satisfying. A little of the right kind of meat goes a long way, and in this book, the right ones are anchovies and pancetta, along with almonds, because nuts are the meat of the plant world. Cal uses them first for flavor, but also because it makes sense: taking savory little bites is inarguably better than big meaty mouthfuls. The salt in anchovies and pancetta draws out and enhances flavors, enriching the rest of the dish, and almonds compare favorably fat-wise and can bring a major flavor boost, especially when they’re ground up. This kind of cooking is healthy, leans toward sustainability, and is economical in a way that pleases both palate and pocketbook.

Buttermilk Graffiti: A Chef’s Journey to Discover America’s New Melting-Pot Cuisine

Lists It Appears On:

  • Book Riot 1
  • Book Riot 2
  • Smithsonian Magazine

There is a new American culinary landscape developing around us, and it’s one that chef Edward Lee is proud to represent. In a nation of immigrants who bring their own culinary backgrounds to this country, what happens one or even two generations later? What does their cuisine become? It turns into a cuisine uniquely its own and one that Lee argues makes America the most interesting place to eat on earth. Lee illustrates this through his own life story of being a Korean immigrant and a New Yorker and now a Southerner. In Off the Menu, he shows how we each have a unique food memoir that is worthy of exploration. To Lee, recipes are narratives and a conduit to learn about a person, a place, or a point in time. He says that the best way to get to know someone is to eat the food they eat. Each chapter shares a personal tale of growth and self-discovery through the foods Lee eats and the foods of the people he interacts with—whether it’s the Korean budae jjigae of his father or the mustard beer cheese he learns to make from his wife’s German-American family. Each chapter is written in narrative form and punctuated with two recipes to highlight the story, including Green Tea Beignets, Cornbread Pancakes with Rhubarb Jam, and Butternut Squash Schnitzel. Each recipe tells a story, but when taken together, they form the arc of the narrative and contribute to the story we call the new American food.

Edna Lewis: At the Table with an American Original

Lists It Appears On:

  • Book Riot 2
  • Booklist
  • WBUR

Edna Lewis (1916-2006) wrote some of America’s most resonant, lyrical, and significant cookbooks, including the now classic The Taste of Country Cooking. Lewis cooked and wrote as a means to explore her memories of childhood on a farm in Freetown, Virginia, a community first founded by black families freed from slavery. With such observations as “we would gather wild honey from the hollow of oak trees to go with the hot biscuits and pick wild strawberries to go with the heavy cream,” she commemorated the seasonal richness of southern food. After living many years in New York City, where she became a chef and a political activist, she returned to the South and continued to write. Her reputation as a trailblazer in the revival of regional cooking and as a progenitor of the farm-to-table movement continues to grow. In this first-ever critical appreciation of Lewis’s work, food-world stars gather to reveal their own encounters with Edna Lewis. Together they penetrate the mythology around Lewis and illuminate her legacy for a new generation.



39 .) Estela written by Ignacio Mattos

Estela

Lists It Appears On:

  • Epicurious
  • Serious Eats
  • The Manual

Everyone wants to eat at Ignacio Mattos’s Estela, from the world’s top chefs to ordinary food lovers. (Michelle and Barack Obama chose Estela as the one restaurant they wanted to eat at during a visit to New York.) It’s because each Ignacio Mattos dish is the quintessence of right. He just nails it–his inventive and playful layering of flavors and textures, combined with precision in execution, makes each forkful positively electric. His food is influenced by Spanish and Italian cooking–the birthright of all who grow up in Uruguay–but he is equally in love with American food, both high and low. You will find dishes like a Waldorf salad or a sauce inspired by his infatuation with a cheesy topping encountered at a 7-Eleven; yet each is unlike anything you have ever tried. Familiar, yes, but astonishingly better. He offers seasoning and flavoring tricks–the use of different salts and vinegars in a given dish (not one type but two or more), the use of juiced greens in place of sauces that make everything bright and light, the way he dresses salads (he doesn’t)–that will elevate your everyday cooking. The book opens with a chapter on kitchen snacks (staff favorites) and is followed by nine chapters, including one on Estela Classics–dishes which can never leave the menu due to popular demand (e.g., Mussels Escabeche on Toast and Beef Tartare with Sunchoke Chips). The chapter on beloved salads includes Endive with Walnuts and Ubriaco Rosso; Celery Salad with Mint and Formaggio di Fossa; and Apricots with Thai Basil and Fresh Chile. There are recipes for brunch, mains featuring fish and meat, and of course, desserts. “Estela is one of those restaurants that inspire the shit out of me,” says chef Sean Brock. Home cooks will love the immediacy and brilliance of Mattos’s food and will be intrigued and enlightened by the ways he brings forth deep flavor.

34 .) Lateral Cooking written by Niki Segnit

Lateral Cooking

Lists It Appears On:

  • Good Food
  • Independent
  • Readings

The book is divided into 12 chapters, each covering a basic culinary category, such as ‘Bread’, ‘Sauces’ or ‘Custard’. The recipes in each chapter are then arranged on a continuum, the transition from one recipe to another generally amounting to a tweak or two in the method or ingredients. Which is to say, one dish leads to another: once you’ve got the hang of flatbreads, for instance, then its neighbouring dishes on the continuum (crackers, soda bread, scones) will involve the easiest and most intuitive adjustment. The result is greater creativity in the kitchen: Lateral Cooking encourages improvisation, resourcefulness, and, ultimately, the knowledge and confidence to cook by heart.

Like Madhur Jaffrey and Marcella Hazan before her, Naz Deravian will introduce the pleasures and secrets of her mother culture’s cooking to a broad audience that has no idea what it’s been missing. America will not only fall in love with Persian cooking, it’ll fall in love with Naz.” – Samin Nosrat, author of Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: The Four Elements of Good Cooking Naz Deravian lays out the multi-hued canvas of a Persian meal, with 100+ recipes adapted to an American home kitchen and interspersed with Naz’s celebrated essays exploring the idea of home. At eight years old, Naz Deravian left Iran with her family during the height of the 1979 Iranian Revolution and hostage crisis. Over the following ten years, they emigrated from Iran to Rome to Vancouver, carrying with them books of Persian poetry, tiny jars of saffron threads, and always, the knowledge that home can be found in a simple, perfect pot of rice. As they traverse the world in search of a place to land, Naz’s family finds comfort and familiarity in pots of hearty aash, steaming pomegranate and walnut chicken, and of course, tahdig: the crispy, golden jewels of rice that form a crust at the bottom of the pot. The best part, saved for last. In Bottom of the Pot, Naz, now an award-winning writer and passionate home cook based in LA, opens up to us a world of fragrant rose petals and tart dried limes, music and poetry, and the bittersweet twin pulls of assimilation and nostalgia. In over 100 recipes, Naz introduces us to Persian food made from a global perspective, at home in an American kitchen.

When Diana Henry was sixteen she started a menu notebook (an exercise book carefully covered in wrapping paper). Planning a menu is still her favourite part of cooking. Menus can create very different moods; they can take you places, from an afternoon at the seaside in Brittany to a sultry evening eating mezze in Istanbul. They also have to work as a meal that flows and as a group of dishes that the cook can manage without becoming totally stressed. The 24 menus and 100 recipes in this book reflect places Diana loves, and dishes that are real favorites. The menus are introduced with personal essays in Diana’s now well-known voice- about places or journeys or particular times and explain the choice of dishes. Each menu is a story in itself, but the recipes can also stand alone. The title of the book refers to how Italians end a meal in the summer, when it’s too hot to cook. The host or hostess just puts a bowl of peaches on the table and offers glasses of chilled moscato (or even Marsala). Guests then slice their peach into the glass, before eating the slices and drinking the wine. That says something very important about eating – simplicity and generosity and sometimes not cooking are what it’s about.

For their first major book since the trailblazing Zahav, Michael Solomonov and Steven Cook go straight to the food of the people—the great dishes that are the soul of Israeli cuisine. Usually served from tiny eateries, hole-in-the-wall restaurants, or market stalls, these specialties have passed from father to son or mother to daughter for generations. To find the best versions, the authors scoured bustling cities like Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Haifa, and sleepy towns on mountaintops. They visited bakeries, juice carts, beaches, even weddings.
