Indian Cooking Unfolded
Paperback ISBN: 0761165215
Indian food is ravishing, exotic, addictively flavorful, but has a reputation for being too difficult for the average cook. Not anymore. When Raghavan Iyer moved from Mumbai to Minneapolis, he had to learn how to make all his beloved dishes using supermarket ingredients —and now he shows us his secrets in Indian Cooking Unfolded. This book makes obvious why Raghavan won an IACP Award of Excellence for Cooking Teacher of the Year: His voice is clear and encouraging, his directions faultless, his recipes authentic yet completely accessible. But it’s also the stunning new format of the book that makes this a perfect introduction to Indian food. Each section opens with a fully illustrated, full-color foldout lesson in technique that leads the reader step-by-step through one foundation recipe, from a starter—poppadums and spicy dips—to roti, the homemade griddle bread, to a smoky yellow split pea dal, and more. There are seven altogether; do all seven, and they’ll make one knockout meal. Following the foldout lesson are more recipes in the same category, each carefully chosen to exemplify an essential element in Indian cooking—how to make ghee, paneer, raita, chutney, lassi—or expand your repertoire. Festive Lamb Chops with Cardamom. Spinach Phyllo Samosas. Sassy Chickpea Curry. Creamy Wild Salmon with Kale. Turmeric Hash Browns. Saffron-Pistachio Ice Cream Bars. There are 100 recipes in all, with no complex spice blends, no hard-to-find ingredients, no list longer than ten ingredients, and no excessive prep time needed.
The Healing Cuisine of China
300 Recipes for Vibrant Health and Longevity
Paperback ISBN: 089281778x
A comprehensive guide to the Chinese art of healing with foodÂ â€¢ Provides more than 300 authentic Chinese recipes for curing specific ailments and for promoting happiness and vitalityÂ â€¢ Explains the theories behind traditional Chinese beliefs about health and diet and reconciles these beliefs with contemporary Western medical knowledgeÂ â€¢ Includes a complete fitness program centered on the popular Chinese qi gong exercisesÂ Through 5,000 years of recorded history the Chinese have developed an unequaled pharmacopoeia of food remedies and have turned this knowledge into a delicious cuisine that is simple to prepare. This cuisine has little in common with the dishes on the menus of many Chinese restaurants--which have sacrificed traditional Chinese principles to appeal to high-fat Western tastes. Instead, it emphasizes all-natural ingredients eaten in season and in the most beneficial combinations.Â The Healing Cuisine of China features more than 300 authentic Chinese recipes, ranging from simple preparations to cure specific ailments to traditional "longevity banquets." The authors also explain the underlying theories behind traditional Chinese beliefs about health and reconcile these ancient beliefs with Western medical knowledge about bacteria, viruses, and other causes of disease. A complete fitness program, centered on the popular Chinese qi gong exercises, and a questionnaire to help readers discover their individual body requirements make this the most comprehensive guide to the healthy lifestyle of China ever published.
