Rhubarb Renaissance
Rhubarb Renaissance
Paperback      ISBN: 0873518519

Many know rhubarb thanks to a shockingly tart introduction in childhood, likely countered by dipping the stalk in sugar, or as simply "the pie plant," a worthy component of custard or mixed-fruit pastries. Why not expand the concept beyond those idyllic, long ago summer days? A s ingredients and techniques have evolved to suit modern tastes, so too have opportunities to showcase this oft-overlooked vegetable. In Rhubarb Renaissance, seasoned writer and baker Kim Ode invites us to join her in celebrating rhubarb as one of the great flavors of horticulture.

In a lively re-introduction to this versatile vegetable, more than fifty creative recipes highlight uses from savory to sweet. Notes on rhubarb's historic medicinal uses, preservation advice, and kitchen basics including foundation recipes for roasted rhubarb set up a selection of appetizers, entr es, desserts, and breads. Expand your repertoire with clever concoctions such as Rhubarb Corn Fritters, Turkey Tenderloins with RhubarBQ Sauce, Spiced Couscous with Rhubarb and Figs, or Chop-Chop Sweet and Sour Stir-fry. More familiar applications are offered with a slight--and tasty--twist: Salted Caramel Rhubapple Pie, for example, or Zucchini-Rhubarb Bread. With these delectable combinations and more, Rhubarb Renaissance reinforces memories of grandma's kitchen but also inspires delight in the stalk's place at the contemporary table.

Dozens of varieties of leafy green (67 to be exact) are featured, each with a photograph for easy identification -- from popular ones like spinach, to the trendy such as kale and collards, to the obscure like mizuna or purslane, which may only be familiar to foragers, avid gardeners or world travelers.

All the greens are listed alphabetically, and each listing contains:

  • Scientific and alternate names, and types
  • Historical information including fascinating folk remedies
  • Nutritional information as well as tasting notes

  • How to buy, store, prepare and cook the green
  • Measures & substitutions, equivalents
  • Intriguing and entertaining sidebar boxes.

Smoothies are the perfect way to incorporate more greens into your diet. The humble Brussels sprout is elevated to a whole new level in Brussels and Yukon Hash, dandelion is dandy in Penne Boscaiola and Napa simply shines in Grilled Kimcheese Sandwiches. Explore greens from other parts of the world that are now grown in North America -- Yu Choy in Yu Choy with Saucy Shiitakes and Baby Corn, or taro leaves that perfectly complete the recipe for West Indies Pepper Pot Soup.

So stretch beyond your typical cooking routine and tap into a healthier, more interesting way of eating by simply incorporating more greens into your kitchen.

Ancho and Poblano Chiles
Ancho and Poblano Chiles
2nd Edition    Paperback      ISBN: 1938288297

Of all the civilizations the Spanish explorers found in the New World, the one that loved the native chile peppers the most was the Aztecs. Theirs was a culture in which the hot and tasty treats were revered almost as much as sex. Over the centuries, Aztec cookery grew and spread to become the basis for the Mexican food of today, and many Aztec dishes have lasted through the years basically unchanged. Usually, these foods were roasted, boiled, or cooked in sauces, in a legacy that Dave DeWitt, the noted Pope of Peppers, has compiled into this wonderful addition to his scintillating Pepper Pantry series.

The Quintessential Kale Cookbook: Simple and Delicious Recipes for Everyone's Favorite Superfood
The Quintessential Kale Cookbook
Simple and Delicious Recipes for Everyone's Favorite Superfood
Hardcover      ISBN: 1629141895

Kale is considered one of the world's most powerful superfoods for very good reasons. It's packed with antioxidants, which help neutralize free radicals in the body, which, in turn, helps to prevent many kinds of cancer. Just one cup provides more than 100 percent of the daily value of vitamins A, C, and K, and it's low calorie, high in fiber, and fat-free. Furthermore, kale is high in iron and has a good dose of omega-3 fatty acids, which work as an anti-inflammatory and help fight arthritis, asthma, and autoimmune disorders. And to top all that off, author Julia Mueller proves that it can be delicious.
With seventy-five recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack time, and even dessert, your whole family will quickly fall in love with kale. Here's a sampling of the recipes included:

- Blackened salmon with garlicy Cajun kale
- Butternut squash and kale chili
- Cauliflower and kale yellow curry
- Grilled kale, peach, and corn salad with basil honey balsamic vinaigrette
- Indian chickpea stew with kale
- Roasted beet, walnut, and kale pesto
- Sausage, fennel, and kale soup
- Saut ed shrimp and kale tacos with pineapple, corn, and kale salsa
- Savory cheesy kale pancakes
- Shrimp, artichoke heart, sun-dried tomato pesto pizza
- Turkey sliders with caramelized onions, saut ed kale, and blue cheese

Each recipe is paired with a gorgeous full-color photo, making this not only a great cookbook, but a beautiful one as well. Whether you're an experienced chef, or just trying it out for the first time, Let Them Eat Kale is an invaluable resource for a delicious, healthy kitchen.
