The Italians have a secret. Over the centuries, they have pioneered more than 300 shapes of pasta, each with a history, a story to tell, and an affinity for particular foods. These shapes have evolved alongside the flavors of local ingredients, and the perfect combination can turn an ordinary dish into something sublime. The Geometry of Pasta pairs more than one hundred authentic recipes from critically acclaimed chef Jacob Kenedy with award-winning designer Caz Hildebrand's stunning black-and-white designs to reveal the science, history, and philosophy behind spectacular pasta dishes from all over Italy. Packaged in a crisply designed black-and-white hardcover (complete with a dust jacket that unfolds into a poster of pasta shapes and patterns), The Geometry of Pasta is a one-of-a-kind cookbook unlike anything you've ever seen!

Carne: Meat Recipes from the Kitchen of the American Academy in Rome
Carne
Meat Recipes from the Kitchen of the American Academy in Rome
Hardcover      ISBN: 1936941120
Carne is the fifth in the series of cookbooks documenting the renowned farm-to-table meals served by the Rome Sustainable Food Project, founded by Alice Waters, at the American Academy in Rome. Following volumes on biscotti, vegetables, pastas, and soups, this cookbook focuses on Executive Chef Christopher Behr’s favorite subject, meat: beef, lamb, pork, rabbit, and poultry. Chef Behr also offers more than a dozen recipes for side dishes, or contorni, that he serves alongside meat entrées: salads (including Radicchio Salad with Green Apple Balsamic Vinaigrette with Walnuts and Grilled Cucumber Salad with Yogurt), bean dishes, Sweet and Sour Squash, Pickled Green Tomatoes with Garlic, Hot Pepper and Mint (a dish that sold out within hours when he offered it at BKLYN Larder), and his legendary roasted potatoes that are crisp and golden on the outside with the creamy consistency of mashed potatoes on the inside. The Italian food of the Jersey shore is near and dear to Chef Behr’s heart, and when he’s homesick he cooks those iconic dishes, from meat loaf to short ribs, although his versions reflect his experiences in California, New York, and Rome—they’re lighter than the classic version but nonetheless deliver all their robust satisfaction.
