"An invaluable book for anyone following a plant-based diet."

This cookbook combines the farm-to-table appeal of Alice Waters with the French escapism of Patricia Wells. It will satisfy those who aspire to the lifestyle fantasies of Kinfolk magazine and follow chefs like Dan Barber and David Kinch. A thoughtful, deep-rooted way of cooking that reconnects us with the land. Daniel de la Falaise approaches cooking as a sensual task and a celebration of quality products involving as little interference as possible. His compass point: the taste of the raw ingredient just plucked from the soil. His way of cooking-- which places vegetables at the forefront, but is not vegetarian--centers around coaxing the most flavor from each ingredient at its peak freshness. Nature's Larder opens up a new way of thinking about food, one that returns to an instinctual relationship to taste and a direct connection to the natural world.
The long-awaited memoir from cultural icon and culinary standard bearer Alice Waters recalls the circuitous road and tumultuous times leading to the opening of what is arguably America's most influential restaurant. When Alice Waters opened the doors of her "little French restaurant" in Berkeley, California in 1971 at the age of 27, no one ever anticipated the indelible mark it would leave on the culinary landscape—Alice least of all. Fueled in equal parts by naiveté and a relentless pursuit of beauty and pure flavor, she turned her passion project into an iconic institution that redefined American cuisine for generations of chefs and food lovers. In Coming to My Senses Alice retraces the events that led her to 1517 Shattuck Avenue and the tumultuous times that emboldened her to find her own voice as a cook when the prevailing food culture was embracing convenience and uniformity. Moving from a repressive suburban upbringing to Berkeley in 1964 at the height of the Free Speech Movement and campus unrest, she was drawn into a bohemian circle of charismatic figures whose views on design, politics, film, and food would ultimately inform the unique culture on which Chez Panisse was founded. Dotted with stories, recipes, photographs, and letters, Coming to My Senses is at once deeply personal and modestly understated, a quietly revealing look at one woman's evolution from a rebellious yet impressionable follower to a respected activist who effects social and political change on a global level through the common bond of food.
For top chef Ludo Lefebvre, cooking is a sensual process that involves all five senses at every stage of preparation. In Crave, Lefebvre offers more than one hundred original, elegant, and unbelievably delicious recipes that teach us the joy -- and skill -- of cooking with the senses. In dishes such as his signature Glazed Langoustines with Ceylon Cinnamon, he shows that through our senses we can bring creativity and a sense of playfulness to cooking while still preserving the great traditions behind cuisine. Lefebvre brings a whole new level to the sense of taste with groundbreaking techniques for contrasting and balancing spices; he shows how to choose meat and produce and how to test food through touch; he teaches the difference between the sound of butter and oil that's ready for cooking and the sound of burning; he offers visual cues that can enhance technique and presentation; and he introduces recipes that tantalize the powerful sense of smell to heighten both the flavor and experience of a dish. Along with his desire to put delightful recipes into the hands of the home chef, Lefebvre wants us to expand our perception and understanding of the cooking process. "I want people to cook with love. I want them to be aware of what they're doing," says Lefebvre. "The act of cooking can be as much of a pleasure as eating, and if you really cook with your senses, you begin to find that cooking isn't work -- it's play." These inspiring recipes will encourage you to slow down and become fully absorbed as you learn to cook with and for all five senses: See: Oysters on the Half Shell with Red Beet Jelly and Shallot Cream Touch: Fried Stuffed Tomato Beignets Smell: Chicken Etouffée in Dried Verbena and Curry Leaves Hear: Roast Beef with Long Pepper and Spiced French Fries Taste: Lemon Sorbet with Saffron With Lefebvre's highly original interpretation of French cuisine and his sensual, almost spiritual, approach to every culinary endeavor, Crave invites us to make home cooking a rich, sensual, and rewarding experience.

COOKING VEGAN was designed to help vegan and non-vegans alike understand how to use plant-based foods to sustain and maintain good health. Internationally renowned vegan dietitian Vesanto Melina and professional chef Joseph Forest combine their expansive knowledge and experience in this tour de force of information and tempting recipes to help readers expand their nutritional knowledge and increase their culinary repertoire. A companion book to Vesanto's best-selling Becoming Vegan (coauthored with Brenda Davis, R.D.), COOKING VEGAN expertly demonstrates that a well-balanced vegan diet supplies all the nutrients our bodies need. Explicit information is given on which foods provide protein to help maintain fitness, the right combination of nutrients to build strong bones, the best sources for carbohydrates and fats, and smart choices for obtaining vitamins D and B12. Each recipe has a complete nutritional analysis listing the number of calories and the amount of protein, fat, carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins, and essential fatty acids per cup or serving. A Vegan Food Guide describes the necessary food groups and provides recommended servings for optimal nutrition. Special emphasis was placed on creating foods that appeal to the senses of sight, smell, taste, and touch. A beginner seeking simplicity and a gourmet chef exploring the depths and nuances of flavor will both find nourishing and appetizing meals easy to assemble. Twelve daily menus combine recipes to help people of any age, activity level, or ability in the kitchen get a sense of how to mix and match dishes to suit their needs. A few of the delicious recipes to savor include Cashew Cheese Lasagne, Fiesta Quinoa Salad w/ Lime Dressing, Portobello Mushroom Burgers, Tuscan Minestrone and Chocolate-Orange Cake.
