The legacy work by one of the most influential experts on Spanish cuisine Penelope Casas was one of the premier experts on Spanish food: She taught Americans about jam n serrano, Manchego cheese, and chorizo, in addition to countless dishes, from patatas bravas to churros. She wrote several acclaimed books, and 1,000 Spanish Recipes is her final work and legacy. It is the latest--and a very special--addition to the award-winning 1,000 Recipes series; in this unmatched collection of simple, precise recipes, she takes readers on a culinary journey of Spain from Galicia to Madrid to the Canary Islands. There is a wealth of options for tapas (including 18 Spanish omelets); soups (11 recipes for gazpacho); salads; main courses; vegetable, bean, and grain dishes (50 paellas ); breads; and desserts (20 types of flan). Icons for vegetarian recipes, special menus, and features on Spanish ingredients and dishes will engage and reassure cooks. This culmination of Casas's 40-year career and lifelong love affair with Spanish food will be a treasured cookbook and guide.

Around the Roman Table: Food and Feasting in Ancient Rome
Around the Roman Table
Food and Feasting in Ancient Rome
Paperback      ISBN: 0226233472

Craving dolphin meatballs? Can't find a reliable restaurant for boiled parrot? Have a hankering for jellyfish omelettes, sows' wombs in brine, sheep's brain pate, or stuffed mice? Look no further than Around the Roman Table, a unique hybrid cookbook and history lesson. A portrait of Roman society from the vantage point of the dining table, kitchen, and market stalls, Around the Roman Table offers both an account of Roman eating customs and 150 recipes reconstructed for the modern cook.

Faas guides readers through the culinary conquests of Roman invasions--as conquerors pillaged foodstuffs from faraway lands--to the decadence of Imperial Rome and its associated table manners, dining arrangements, spices, seasonings, and cooking techniques. With recipes for such appetizing dishes as chicken galantine with lambs' brains and fish relish, Around the Roman Table is ideal for food aficionados who wish to understand how the desire for power and conquest was manifested in Roman appetites.

There are many misconceptions about the food of ancient Rome that Faas sets out to correct. The result is half cookbook, half history book and is entirely fascinating to both chef and antiquarian alike.--Washington Times

Hardcover      ISBN: 1579655009

Einat Admony is a 21st-century balaboosta (Yiddish for "perfect housewife").She's a mother and wife, but also a chef busy running three bustling New York City restaurants. Her debut cookbook features 140 of the recipes she cooks for the people she loves--her children, her husband, and the many friends she regularly entertains. Here, Einat's mixed Israeli heritage (Yemenite, Persian) seamlessly blends with the fresh, sophisticated Mediterranean palate she honed while working in some of New York City's most beloved kitchens.

The result is a melting pot of meals for every need and occasion: exotic and exciting dinner-party dishes (harissa-spiced Moroccan fish, beet gnocchi), meals just for kids (chicken schnitzel, root veggie chips), healthy options (butternut squash and saffron soup, quinoa salad with preserved lemon and chickpeas), satisfying comfort food (creamy, cheesy potatoes, spicy chili), and so much more.

"Truly insider access, an authentic look at the traditions of one of the most incredible culinary regions of the world."
--Jos Andr s

Tucked away in the northwest corner of Spain, Basque Country not only boasts more Michelin-starred restaurants per capita than any other region in the world, but its unique confluence of mountain and sea, values and tradition, informs every bite of its soulful cuisine, from pintxos to accompany a glass of wine to the elbows-on-the-table meals served in its legendary eating clubs.

Yet Basque Country is more than a little inaccessible--shielded by a unique language and a distinct culture, it's an enigma to most outsiders. Until now. Marti Buckley, an American chef, journalist, and passionate Basque transplant, unlocks the mysteries of this culinary world by bringing together its intensely ingredient-driven recipes with stories of Basque customs and the Basque kitchen, and vivid photographs of both food and place. And surprise: this is food we both want to eat and can easily make. It's not about exotic ingredients or flashy techniques. It's about mind-set--how to start with that just-right fish or cut of meat or peak-of-ripeness tomato and coax forth its inherent depth of flavor. It's the marriage of simplicity and refinement, and the joy of cooking for family and friends.

'The next best thing to actually travelling with Caroline Eden - a warm, erudite and greedy guide - is to read her. This is my kind of book.' Diana Henry

'A wonderfully inspiring book about a magical part of the world' Viv Groskop, author of The Anna Karenina Fix

'Part travelogue, part recipe book, this is a love letter to "the sea that welcomes strangers", soaked in colour, history, myth and the flavours of many cultures.' Nick Hunt author of Where the Wild Winds Are

This is the tale of a journey between three great cities - Odessa, built on a dream by Catherine the Great, through Istanbul, the fulcrum balancing Europe and Asia and on to tough, stoic, lyrical Trabzon.

With a nose for a good recipe and an ear for an extraordinary story, Caroline Eden travels from Odessa to Bessarabia, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey's Black Sea region, exploring interconnecting culinary cultures. From the Jewish table of Odessa, to meeting the last fisherwoman of Bulgaria and charting the legacies of the White Russian migr s in Istanbul, Caroline gives readers a unique insight into a part of the world that is both shaded by darkness and illuminated by light.

Meticulously researched and documenting unprecedented meetings with remarkable individuals, Black Sea is like no other piece of travel writing. Packed with rich photography and sumptuous food, this biography of a region, its people and its recipes truly breaks new ground.

'Eden's blazing talent and unabashedly greedy curiosity will have you strapped in beside her. If Sybille Bedford or Patrick Leigh Fermor had included a few recipes in their accounts of their journeys, you'd know exactly where to shelve this gem.' Christine Muhlke, The New York Times

'The food in Black Sea is wonderful, but it's Eden's prose that really elevates this book to the extraordinary. She captures people, history, and the ineffable soul of cities with astonishing, almost novelistic precision - more than once, even in the headnotes, I felt myself getting lost in the world of the story. I can't remember any cookbook that's drawn me in quite like this.' Helen Rosner, Art of Eating judge
A Book of Mediterranean Food
A Book of Mediterranean Food
Paperback      ISBN: 1590170032

Long acknowledged as the inspiration for such modern masters as Julia Child and Claudia Roden, A Book of Mediterranean Food is Elizabeth David's passionate mixture of recipes, culinary lore, and frank talk. In bleak postwar Great Britain, when basics were rationed and fresh food a fantasy, David set about to cheer herself --and her audience-- up with dishes from the south of France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, and the Middle East. Some are sumptuous, many are simple, most are sublime.
