Biscotti
Recipes from the Kitchen of the American Academy in Rome: Rome Sustainable Food Project
Hardcover      ISBN: 1892145898
The Rome Sustainable Food Project, a program devoted to providing organic, local, and sustainable meals for the community of the American Academy in Rome, has launched a delicious revolution to rethink institutional dining. Headed by chef Mona Talbott, a Chez Panisse alum, and guided by Alice Waters, the menus have given rise to a new, authentic cuisine inspired by la cucina romana, Chez Panisse, and the collective experience of those working in the AAR kitchen. Biscotti is the first book in the series. Each volume, covering a single subject, contains authentic, simple recipes for favorite dishes served at the academy’s communal table, narrated with carefully explained techniques and methods—suitable for both the home cook and the institutional kitchen. Our first bite into this book project is a sweet one, focusing on fifty biscotti and dolcetti (cookies and sweets). Subsequent volumes in the series will include muffins and scones; pasta, long and short; vegetables; preserves; and more.

Momofuku Milk Bar
Momofuku Milk Bar
Hardcover      ISBN: 0307720497
"Just as Momofuku was much more than a cookbook, Momofuku Milk Bar, too, will have a compelling narrative story, also written with Peter Meehan, that shares the unlikely beginnings of this quirky bakery's success. A runaway success in fall 2009, Momofuku suffered from just one criticism among reviewers: where were Christina Tosi's fantastic desserts? The compost cookie, a chunky chocolate-chip cookie studded with crunchy salty pretzels and coffee grounds; the crack pie, a sugary-buttery confection as craveable as the name implies; the cereal milk ice cream, made from everyone's favorite part of a nutritious breakfast--the milk at the bottom of a bowl of cereal; the easy layer cakes that forgo fancy frosting in favor of unfinished edges that hint at the yumminess inside. Momofuku Milk Bar will have all the recipes for their most addictive desserts, along with ones for savory baked goods that take a page from Dave's Asian-flavored cuisine, such as Kimchi Croissant with Blue Cheese"--
