Forewords by Alice Waters and Michael Pollan
In this dazzling, full color cookbook and kitchen manual filled with lush photographs and beautiful drawings, the chef of Alice Waters' Chez Panisse offers basic techniques and essential recipes that will transform anyone into a confident home cook.
When his oldest son was leaving for college, Cal Peternell, the chef of San Francisco's legendary Chez Panisse, realized that, although he regularly made dinners for his family, he'd never taught them the basics of cooking. Based on the life-altering course of instruction he prepared and honed through many phone calls with his son, Twelve Recipes is the ultimate introduction to the kitchen. Peternell focuses on the core foods and dishes that comprise a successful home cook's arsenal, each building skill upon skill--from toast, eggs, and beans, to vinaigrettes, pasta with tomato, and rice, to vegetables, soup, meats, and cake.
Twelve Recipes will help home cooks develop a core repertoire of skills and increase their culinary confidence. Peternell tells you what basic ingredients and tools you need for a particular recipe, and then adds variations to expand your understanding. Each tip, instruction, and recipe connects with others to weave into a larger story that illuminates the connection between food and life. A deeply personal book, it was written by the chef alone and it glows with warmth and humor as he mulls over such mundane items as toast and rice to offer surprising new insights about foods that only seem exceedingly ordinary. It's a book you're as likely to keep by your bedside as your stovetop. With Peternell as your guide, the journey is pure pleasure and the destination is delicious.
Twelve Recipes features gorgeous color photos and inset illustrations by Peternell's wife and sons (all artists), and forewords by celebrated chef Alice Waters and New York Times columnist and bestselling author Michael Pollan.

The Minnesota Farmers Market Cookbook is a guide to choosing, preserving, and preparing the seasonal food you find at farmers markets, plus 80 recipes from local chefs and farmers.
Bowls of heavy, red tomatoes; stacks of tender sweet corn; baskets of crisp green beans: this is what summer looks like at the farmers market. The number of farmers markets in Minnesota has more than tripled over the last decade (from 45 in 2002 to more than 150 today) as we search out the healthiest, most delicious, and most local food we can find. The trouble is, sometimes we simply don't know what to do with a heaping basket of green beans--not to mention $3 of kohlrabi. The Minnesota Farmers Market Cookbook solves that problem. It's easy to use--you can look up food by name, season, or recipe--and supremely helpful in figuring out how to choose the best produce, store it so it stays fresh as long as possible, and prepare it with simple, delectable recipes that you'll return to again and again.
More than 80 recipes collected from chefs, vendors, and foodies around the state showcase the best of seasonal cooking, from Andrew Zimmern's zuppa valdostana to Lenny Russo's grilled pork tenderloin to Atina Diffley's sesame kale. If you're not a whiz in the kitchen, don't worry--author Tricia Cornell explains basic cooking techniques and offers timesaving tips for busy folks who want to eat right. Maps and a complete market directory benefit explorers and rookies alike: if you don't know where your nearest market is, or you know it so well you're craving a change of scenery, take a look inside.

JAMES BEARD AWARD NOMINEE - NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY "VOGUE" - "NEW YORK TIMES "BESTSELLER
"One of the great culinary stories of our time."--Dwight Garner, "The New York Times"
It begins with a simple ritual: Every Saturday afternoon, a boy who loves to cook walks to his grandmother's house and helps her prepare a roast chicken for dinner. The grandmother is Swedish, a retired domestic. The boy is Ethiopian and adopted, and he will grow up to become the world-renowned chef Marcus Samuelsson. This book is his love letter to food and family in all its manifestations.
Marcus Samuelsson was only three years old when he, his mother, and his sister--all battling tuberculosis--walked seventy-five miles to a hospital in the Ethiopian capital city of Addis Adaba. Tragically, his mother succumbed to the disease shortly after she arrived, but Marcus and his sister recovered, and one year later they were welcomed into a loving middle-class white family in GOteborg, Sweden. It was there that Marcus's new grandmother, Helga, sparked in him a lifelong passion for food and cooking with her pan-fried herring, her freshly baked bread, and her signature roast chicken. From a very early age, there was little question what Marcus was going to be when he grew up.
"Yes, Chef "chronicles Marcus Samuelsson's remarkable journey from Helga's humble kitchen to some of the most demanding and cutthroat restaurants in Switzerland and France, from his grueling stints on cruise ships to his arrival in New York City, where his outsize talent and ambition finally come together at Aquavit, earning him a coveted "New York Times "three-star rating at the age of twenty-four. But Samuelsson's career of "chasing flavors," as he calls it, had only just begun--in the intervening years, there have been White House state dinners, career crises, reality show triumphs and, most important, the opening of the beloved Red Rooster in Harlem. At Red Rooster, Samuelsson has fufilled his dream of creating a truly diverse, multiracial dining room--a place where presidents and prime ministers rub elbows with jazz musicians, aspiring artists, bus drivers, and nurses. It is a place where an orphan from Ethiopia, raised in Sweden, living in America, can feel at home.
With disarming honesty and intimacy, Samuelsson also opens up about his failures--the price of ambition, in human terms--and recounts his emotional journey, as a grown man, to meet the father he never knew. "Yes, Chef "is a tale of personal discovery, unshakable determination, and the passionate, playful pursuit of flavors--one man's struggle to find a place for himself in the kitchen, and in the world.
Praise for "Yes, Chef"
"Such an interesting life, told with touching modesty and remarkable candor."--Ruth Reichl
"Marcus Samuelsson has an incomparable story, a quiet bravery, and a lyrical and discreetly glittering style--in the kitchen and on the page. I liked this book so very, very much."--Gabrielle Hamilton
"Plenty of celebrity chefs have a compelling story to tell, but none of them can top this] one.""--The Wall Street Journal"
"Red Rooster's arrival in Harlem brought with it a chef who has reinvigorated and reimagined what it means to be American. In his famed dishes, and now in this memoir, Marcus Samuelsson tells a story that reaches past racial and national divides to the foundations of family, hope, and downright good food."--President Bill Clinton
