Providence & Rhode Island Chef's Table
Extraordinary Recipes from the Ocean State
Hardcover      ISBN: 0762796626

The state of Rhode Island is so small, it's more like a city-state with just about everything within easy driving distance. Rhode Island really is like one big city where you can drive thirty minutes in any direction and find a restaurant worthy of your time and money.Rue de l'Espoir and Pot au Feu were the early pioneers, serving French cuisine and bistro fare. Al Forno and New Rivers opened in 1980, both garnering national acclaim for their Modern Italian cuisine and New American cuisine, respectively. Not surprisingly, these four wonderful restaurants are still in business today. Their continued success is a testament to their culinary vision. It was those venerable restaurants and chefs that brought media attention to little Rhode Island, but so many chefs and restaurateurs deserve to be mentioned: If Rhode Island had a foodie hall of fame, these well-established culinary stars would all deserve a place there. Standing on their shoulders is a whole new generation of young chefs, members of the new progressive food movement. They are equally passionate about their food and where it comes from. They have all formed close ties to local farmers and fishermen to ensure the freshest possible ingredients are delivered regularly to their kitchens.With 100 recipes for the home cook from the state's most celebrated eateries and showcasing full-color photos featuring mouth-watering dishes, famous chefs, and lots of local flavor, Providence & Rhode Island Chef's Table is a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. The delicious dishes featured here are personal histories--stories of people, place. Each recipe, chef profile, and photo tells its part of the story of Rhode Island.

Prune: A Cookbook
Prune
A Cookbook
Hardcover      ISBN: 0812994094
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

From Gabrielle Hamilton, bestselling author of Blood, Bones & Butter, comes her eagerly anticipated cookbook debut filled with signature recipes from her celebrated New York City restaurant Prune.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE SEASON BY
Time - O: The Oprah Magazine - Bon App tit - Eater

A self-trained cook turned James Beard Award-winning chef, Gabrielle Hamilton opened Prune on New York's Lower East Side fifteen years ago to great acclaim and lines down the block, both of which continue today. A deeply personal and gracious restaurant, in both menu and philosophy, Prune uses the elements of home cooking and elevates them in unexpected ways. The result is delicious food that satisfies on many levels.

Highly original in concept, execution, look, and feel, the Prune cookbook is an inspired replica of the restaurant's kitchen binders. It is written to Gabrielle's cooks in her distinctive voice, with as much instruction, encouragement, information, and scolding as you would find if you actually came to work at Prune as a line cook. The recipes have been tried, tasted, and tested dozens if not hundreds of times. Intended for the home cook as well as the kitchen professional, the instructions offer a range of signals for cooks--a head's up on when you have gone too far, things to watch out for that could trip you up, suggestions on how to traverse certain uncomfortable parts of the journey to ultimately help get you to the final destination, an amazing dish.

Complete with more than with more than 250 recipes and 250 color photographs, home cooks will find Prune's most requested recipes--Grilled Head-on Shrimp with Anchovy Butter, Bread Heels and Pan Drippings Salad, Tongue and Octopus with Salsa Verde and Mimosa'd Egg, Roasted Capon on Garlic Crouton, Prune's famous Bloody Mary (and all 10 variations). Plus, among other items, a chapter entitled "Garbage"--smart ways to repurpose foods that might have hit the garbage or stockpot in other restaurant kitchens but are turned into appetizing bites and notions at Prune.

Featured here are the recipes, approach, philosophy, evolution, and nuances that make them distinctively Prune's. Unconventional and honest, in both tone and content, this book is a welcome expression of the cookbook as we know it.

Praise for Prune

"Fresh, fascinating . . . entirely pleasurable . . . Since 1999, when the chef Gabrielle Hamilton put Triscuits and canned sardines on the first menu of her East Village bistro, Prune, she has nonchalantly broken countless rules of the food world. The rule that a successful restaurant must breed an empire. The rule that chefs who happen to be women should unconditionally support one another. The rule that great chefs don't make great writers (with her memoir, Blood, Bones & Butter). And now, the rule that restaurant food has to be simplified and prettied up for home cooks in order to produce a useful, irresistible cookbook. . . . Prune] is the closest thing to the bulging loose-leaf binder, stuck in a corner of almost every restaurant kitchen, ever to be printed and bound between cloth covers. (These happen to be a beautiful deep, dark magenta.)"--The New York Times

"One of the most brilliantly minimalist cookbooks in recent memory . . . at once conveys the thrill of restaurant cooking and the wisdom of the author, while making for a charged reading experience."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
