With Ad Hoc at Home, Keller offers a collection of much more accessible recipes, ones you could actually serve quite easily for causal gatherings of family and friends. The book is not aimed at the total novice, but enthusiasts will appreciate the easy to follow nature of the recipes as well as Keller’s unique delivery of them.

The book requires less advance knowledge than his other cookbooks The French Laundry, Bouchon, and Under Pressure. The first section of the book is called “Becoming a better chef,” and Keller outlines the techniques, ingredients, and tools that will help anyone become a better home cook. Keller’s “Basics” section, at the back of the book, is amazing and helpful, providing just about every key base for meals.

 Photographs and step-by-step detailed lessons provide plenty of support, so devotees of Keller can find themselves closer towards understanding his culinary excellence. http://www.amazon.com/gp/mpd/permalink/m2ZAR0VIEUHORQ

FLAVORS OF MY WORLD
A Culinary Tour Through 25 Countries
By Maneet Chauhan & Doug Singer


Food Network celebrity chef, Chopped judge and James Beard Award of Excellence recipient, Maneet Chauhan has always been both a passionate cook and intrepid traveler. In FLAVORS OF MY WORLD: A Culinary Tour Through 25 Countries (Favorite Recipes Press; May 1, 2013) the author’s love of global cuisine shines through, as she pairs evocative anecdotes with 50 delicious food and beverage recipes from around the globe. All combine to both inspire and delight in equal measure.

A celebration of 25 extraordinary cuisines, every recipe featured in the book uses ordinary ingredients easily found in the West. Throughout the lavish full-color volume, Maneet’s intimate storytelling and dynamic recipes take readers on an adventurous journey, without requiring that they ever leave the comfort of their own homes.

From Argentina to Vietnam, the book showcases these cuisines and cultures in all their glorious variety, and all the while offering imaginative variations of traditional dishes and libations in a manner that only Maneet can bring to the table! From Chile comes the sturdy 'pulmay,' a seafood and meat dish perfect for entertaining a crowd; from Ethiopia readers will savor Maneet’s version of a ‘doro wat’ a chicken dish simmered in an array of spices; and from France comes the author’s delightful adaptation of ‘pots de crème,” which will surely stir smiles the world over.

With a foreword by beloved television host and author Ted Allen, and featuring 50 mouth-watering images by famed photographer Quentin Bacon, FLAVORS OF MY WORLD translates a dazzling variety of 25 foods and 25 drinks into an accessible feast as only Maneet Chauhan can.

Local, Sustainable, Delicious Recipes from America’s Great Chefs

Chefs Collaborative & Ellen Jackson – Photography by Gentl & Hyers

 

According to renowned food authority and former editor of Gourmet Magazine Ruth Reichl “Many chefs—and their books—pay lip service to the sustainable ideal. This book does more than that: It offers really wonderful recipes for food that is gorgeous and good for both you and the planet. It’s given me so many great ideas.”

 

Reichl is just one of so many food experts who have sung the praises of this wonderful book published by the organization celebrating 20 years fo food activism in 2013. A few visionary chefs including John Ash, Rick Bayless, Susan Feniger, Norm Pouillon, Michael Romand and Alice Waters were visionaries who played a role food education in their restaurants, school lunch programs and teaching elementary school administrators and students the principles of sustainable food.

 

This book, containing contributing chefs from all regions, is the ideal gift for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day this year.
