AS SEEN IN THE NEW DOCUMENTARY JEREMIAH TOWER: THE LAST MAGNIFICENT

Newly revised and reissued to coincide with The Last Magnificent, a documentary feature produced by Anthony Bourdain, the indelible and entertaining memoir from Jeremiah Tower which chronicles life at the front lines of redefining modern American cuisine.

Widely recognized as the godfather of modern American cooking, Jeremiah Tower is one of the most influential cooks of the last forty years. In 2004, he rocked the culinary world with a tell-all story of his lifelong love affair with food, and the restaurants and people along the way.

An American Girl in London: 120 Nourishing Recipes for Your Family from a Californian Expat Lowest new price: $14.00
Lowest used price: $10.54
List price: $27.50
Author: Marissa Hermer
Brand: Rodale Books

Ladies of London star Marissa Hermer grew up in southern California picking avocados from her grandmother’s tree. Weekends meant trips to the Newport Beach pier for fresh fish and bowls of granola baked in the sunny family kitchen. But everything changed when Marissa moved to London to be with the love of her life, a British restaurateur who prefers meat and potatoes to guacamole. A classic Sunday roast replaced her beachside BBQ, and sticky toffee pudding elbowed out the s’mores. But as she made her home in England and started a family of her own, Marissa didn’t want to lose her roots. She began incorporating a bit of California into her recipes, creating homey British favorites with a brighter twist.

Drawing inspiration from both her American upbringing and British cuisine, the 120 recipes in An American Girl in London show you how to cook delicious, nourishing, family-friendly fare that earns raves on both sides of the pond. From a flavorful sourdough bread and butter pudding to a rich mushroom and tarragon pie, Marissa shows you how to amp up the flavors of home to keep you, your family, and friends feeling fit, loved, and completely nourished. While her home kitchen might not be the most traditional, it’s a match made in transatlantic heaven.

Thank you for considering, “Vegan Instant Pot Cookbook: 5 Ingredients or Less - Quick, Easy, and Healthy Plant Based Meals for Your Family.”

There are still a lot of people out there who mistakenly believe that vegan food is boring, tasteless, and complicated to make.

Real vegan dishes are made from whole food, which is organically delicious, fragrant, and vibrantly colored. These are also cheaper to buy in bulk especially when you price-match these with celebrity-endorsed vegan options. With the help of the Instant Pot, affordable, delicious, and healthy all-vegetable meals can be cooked by simply pressing a couple of buttons.

If you are looking for budget-friendly recipes (vegan or otherwise,) you should really consider buying this book. All the recipes within contain only 5 ingredients or less. Many of which can be easily found in your local grocery stores or supermarkets.

This book contains 60+ vegan-safe recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. These include everything from grain-based breakfast options, to easy soups, and to stick-to-your-ribs dinner selections. There are also healthy choices for those who love to munch on savory snacks in between meals, and those who love to give in to their sweet tooth.

Also included are easy-to-follow, no-cook recipes like: coconut butter, dairy-free pesto, flavored vinegars, and homemade vegan cheese. 

Some of the benefits a Vegan diet:

  • Younger looking skin

  • Lower blood sugar levels
  • Improved kidney function
  • Protection against Cancer
  • Lower risk of heart disease

Giada's Kitchen: New Italian Favorites

Giada's Kitchen: New Italian Favorites Lowest new price: $7.00
Lowest used price: $1.44
List price: $35.00
Author: Giada De Laurentiis
Brand: De Laurentiis, Giada/ Rupp, Tina (PHT)

COOKBOOK: GIADAS KITCHEN: NEW ITALIAN FAVORITES

Book Description
She's taught us every facet of Italian cooking--from traditional and regional to seasonal and contemporary. She even made us fall in love with pasta again by opening us up to lighter, healthier versions that don’t weigh us down. Now the Food Network star and bestselling author of Everyday Pasta, Giada De Laurentiis, takes us down a new path, sharing her love of food with clean, vibrant, simple flavors and bursts of bright colors that look as beautiful on the plate as they are delicious.

Yes, you will still find those fabulous recipes she remembers so fondly from family meals, but you'll also find updated twists on classic trattoria favorites--California-inflected, hearty but not overwhelming, and with the perfect balance of healthfulness and terrific flavor. Wouldn’t you love a faster, lighter take on osso buco (here made with turkey instead of veal), a salad with real substance (like one of cantaloupe, red onion, and walnuts), and fish that gets an Italian makeover by way of lots of fresh veggies and accents such as fennel and grapefruit salsa? And let’s not forget dessert. After all, what’s not to adore about little doughnuts dipped in chocolate sauce?

Ranging from soups and snacks to easy entres and elegant dinner-party fare, Giada's recipes are perfect for any day of the week. And for the first time, she includes a full section of dishes that the little ones will love making as much as they love eating (like mini chicken meatballs). With something to please everyone at your table, Giada’s Kitchen deliciously demonstrates why Giada De Laurentiis has become America's best-loved Italian cook.

Italy meets California in Giada De Laurentiis’s collection of 100 new recipes. She focuses on fresh ingredients, simple preparation, and bright flavors. Anyone who wants to indulge in the pleasures of Italian food without feeling weighed down will find inspiration for delicious, hearty yet healthy weekday meals. Giada’s recipes satisfy both our desire to eat with gusto and to feel good about what we eat.

Giada De Laurentiis's Whole-Wheat Linguine with Green Beans, Ricotta, and Lemon

Not all cream sauces are super-rich. This pasta gets its creamy sauce from a combination of part-skim ricotta and pasta water, which come together to make a really easy, lighter cream sauce. Don't leave out the lemon zest; it brightens the flavor and adds a wonderful lemony aroma as well. --Giada De Laurentiis





Whole-Wheat Linguine with Green Beans, Ricotta, and Lemon
(4-6 servings)




















1 pound whole-wheat linguine
1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 pound French green beans (haricots verts), trimmed and halved lengthwise
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
Zest of 1 lemon

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain the pasta, reserving 1 cup of the cooking water. Transfer the hot pasta to a large heat-proof bowl and add the ricotta. Toss to combine.

Meanwhile, in a large, heavy skillet, warm the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the green beans, garlic, salt, and pepper and sauté for 4 minutes. Add the reserved pasta cooking liquid and continue cooking until the beans are tender, about 4 more minutes. Add the ricotta-coated pasta to the pan with the green beans and toss to combine. Add the tomatoes and toss gently. Transfer to a serving plate and sprinkle with the lemon zest. Serve.

Giada De Laurentiis is the star of Food Network's Everyday Italian, Giada's Weekend Getaways, and Giada in Paradise. She attended Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and worked at Wolfgang Puck's Spago restaurant in Los Angeles. This is her fourth book.

Mustards Grill Napa Valley Cookbook

Mustards Grill Napa Valley Cookbook Lowest new price: $16.02
Lowest used price: $3.49
List price: $39.99
Author: Cindy Pawlcyn
Brand: Ten Speed Press

As anyone who has spent time in Napa Valley knows, Mustards Grill is an institution in the wine country—the friendly restaurant where locals first started going for a full plate of fabulous food and a glass of Napa's finest. Chef-owner Cindy Pawlcyn, founding chef of San Francisco's original Fog City Diner, put down her roots in Napa over 15 years ago, bringing her midwestern sensibility and flair for reinventing American food to the valley. Ever since then, Mustards has been affectionately known as the fancy rib joint with way, way too many wines.

Gorgeous full-color food photography from Saveur photographer Laurie Smith.

Awards: 2002 James Beard Award Winner

"Mustards is universally loved by local residents and tourists alike for its smoky, tender, spicy baby back ribs; cornmeal-coated fried green tomatoes; tasty Asian-marinated flank steak; Chinese chicken noodle salad; and, of course, Mustards' always-crisp tangle of deep-fried onion threads. The enduring vitality of this place comes from the fact [that Cindy Pawlcyn] put all the dishes she loved on the menu: country dishes transformed by her sprightly offbeat style and sparkle."
FOOD LOVER'S GUIDE TO SAN FRANCISCO




"I have always thought of Mustards as a cross between a roadside rib joint and a French country restaurant," writes chef-owner Cindy Pawlcyn, neatly characterizing the culinary pedigree of her famed Napa Valley, California, dining spot. Pawlcyn's Mustards Grill Napa Valley Cookbook, written with Brigid Callinan, offers 150 popular recipes from the restaurant, treats like Slow-Smoked BBQ Pork Sandwiches with Ooo-Eee! Sauce, Wild Mushroom "Burgers" with Apple-Jicama Slaw, and Artichokes with James Beard's Beer Batter and Tarragon Aioli. The recipes can entail a kitchen workout, but they are easy enough to do once the commitment is made. Readers wanting to treat family or guests to sophisticated down-home eating will welcome Pawlcyn's unique repertoire.

In chapters that cover appetizers, soups, and salads, Pawlcyn presents standout recipes like Crab Cakes with Red Beet and Horseradish Rémoulade; Tomato, Basil, and Tortilla Soup; and Chinese Chicken Salad with Sesame Noodles and Rice Vinegar Cucumbers. Smoker- and grill-derived specialties, including Half-Slab BBQ Baby Back Ribs with Crispy Yams and Coleslaw and Tea-Smoked Duck with 100-Almond Sauce and Ginger Pickled Mango, receive their own seductive space, as do pan and sandwich delights like Louise's Bouillabaisse with Rouille and Ahi Tuna and Shiitake Mini Burgers. Desserts such as Lemon-Lime Meringue Pie and Red Raspberry, White Peach, and Blueberry Cobbler follow in the deluxe-diner spirit of the place and should prove an irresistible finale to any meal. They're further tribute to Pawlcyn's one-of-a kind restaurant and its instantly seductive cooking. --Arthur Boehm
