The Ojibwe people call wild rice "mahnomen," the good berry. Wild Rice elaborates on the many elements of that tradition, and brings it forward in fresh, delectable recipes. This comprehensive guide to Zizania palustris tells the story of North America's only native grain, from its emergence in the western Great Lakes area to its use in today's kitchens. The book demystifies the purchasing of wild rice--black or brown, long grain or short grain, lake rice or river rice, US rice or Canadian rice--clarifies cooking options, and proposes wild rice as a fast food (cook a full pound and freeze in small packets).The recipes range from simple soups to gourmet entr es and food for a crowd. Traditionally, wild rice was harvested from canoes and parched in iron kettles over open fires. Although these old ways are still practiced, much of today's wild rice is cultivated in flooded fields--rice paddies--in the Upper Midwest and in California, and is harvested with combines and processed with machinery. The question arises: Which is better-tasting and more nutritious--naturally occurring wild rice or cultivated wild rice? Skyhorse Publishing, along with our Good Books and Arcade imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of cookbooks, including books on juicing, grilling, baking, frying, home brewing and winemaking, slow cookers, and cast iron cooking.

Our list includes French cooking, Swedish cooking, Austrian and German cooking, Cajun cooking, as well as books on jerky, canning and preserving, peanut butter, meatballs, oil and vinegar, bone broth, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

Even if you haven't landed one of the coveted internships in the kitchen at the American Academy in Rome, you can have a behind-the-scenes tutorial in the way that pastas and sauces are made in its kitchen. The recipes in Pasta are arranged in the same order as the interns are taught to make them, from simple to more complex, and are organized the way Italians think about pasta, not only as fresh or dry but by the base of the sauces (oil, tomato, meat, and vegetable).Even the most sophisticated cooks will be intrigued by chef Christopher Boswell's engaging notes that explain what makes the flavors work together, why and how the sauces work with the pastas, and what makes a dish not only great but unforgettable. He includes simple techniques, small refinements, and easy variations. Among the more than ninety recipes you'll find 'nduja, a soft, spicy sausage spread from Calabria; a sauce that unexpectedly pairs basil and asparagus; delicate and refreshing summer pastas; and hearty and earthy vegetarian dishes. You'll find the go-to dish of southern Italian families, made when no one can agree on what they want to eat; a recipe traditionally made by shepherds that uses three ingredients readily found in most modern kitchens; inventive sauces that are riffs on the classics; and iconic sauces whose success depends on something as simple as when to grind the pepper. The influence of Chez Panisse is everywhere in Pasta (Chef Boswell is an alum and the Rome Sustainable Food Project at the American Academy was founded by Alice Waters). Sauces--and even meatballs--are often lighter than their Italian counterparts. Flavors are bright. Ingredients shine. Each dish tells a unique story.
