Grandma Grandpa Cook
Grandma Grandpa Cook
Paperback      ISBN: 9881858399

A collection of over forty recipes and stories recounted by grandparents who came to Hong Kong from China before World War II, Grandma Grandpa Cook is a celebration of the selfless devotion of grandparents to their families, and their contribution to the cultural history of foodways in Hong Kong. Filled with vivid accounts of everyday life during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong and the riots of 1967, all of this history fades into insignificance when food comes into the picture--traditional Cantonese dishes like carrot and green turnip soup, taro in ginger and brown sugar, and sticky rice dumplings.

"A fun, fresh, and inspiring collection that deserves room on any self-respecting home cook's bookshelf."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

At his many successful restaurants, including New York City's famed Tabla, Floyd Cardoz built a name for himself by bringing extraordinary flavors to everyday foods and using spice to turn a dish into something distinct and memorable. In Floyd Cardoz: Flavorwalla, readers will learn how Cardoz amplifies the flavors in more than 100 recipes. The simple addition of mustard seed and lemon makes grilled asparagus a revelation; slow-cooking salmon with fennel and coriander takes it to another level. But this husband and dad has the same challenges we do when cooking for our families, for guests, and for special occasions. Here he presents the recipes he cooks at home, where even the humblest of ingredients--such as eggs, steak, and vegetables--benefit from his nuanced use of spice and simple yet impeccable techniques, making this book an indispensable resource for getting weeknight dinners on the table or for cooking a holiday meal. The standout recipes include Grilled Lamb Shanks with Salsa Verde; Shrimp with Spicy Tomato Sauce; Coconut Basmati Pilaf; Roasted Cauliflower with Candied Ginger, Pine Nuts, and Raisins; and Cardoz's Tamarind Margaritas, of course.
