Cooking From The Pantry - Thomas Rota Cover Art

Cooking From The Pantry

Cooking From The Pantry by Thomas Rota

Having a well stocked pantry and knowing how to cook from it it is like having a personal grocery store at home. It lets the chef save time and energy by not having to go to the supermarket so often. It allows one to arrive home late from work, yet easily prepare a healthy meal. The pantry is also a useful food reserve that saves its owner money by allowing food items to be collected from sales when convenient. With a little bit of organization, it is easy to save hundreds of dollars every year. A well stocked pantry provides a buffer against the uncertainties of the future, which brings peace of mind. Another fun thing about canned and dried foods is that they can be shipped long distances without refrigeration. This lets food producers in exotic parts of the world share their local delicacies in a way that is impossible to do with fresh foods. Some of the recipes in this book take advantage of this opportunity to explore exotic sea foods, regional staples, and appetizers that are only otherwise encountered in travels to foreign lands. Perhaps you will be surprised that some of the recipe ingredients in this book come from the pantry. The later portion of the book describes how to keep items in the pantry that are so often unnecessarily refrigerated.

The Vegetarian Flavor Bible is the ideal reference for the way millions of people cook and eat today -- vegetarians, vegans, and omnivores alike.

What's a Cook to Do?

What's a Cook to Do? An Illustrated Guide to 484 Essential Tools, Tips, Techniques, and Tricks by James Peterson

From the 7-time James Beard Award-winning teacher, an invaluable reference handbook—from picking ripe produce to cooking a perfectly tender lobster. Culinary students everywhere rely on the comprehensive and authoritative cookbooks published by chef, instructor, and award-winning author Jim Peterson. And now, for the first time, this guru-to-the-professionals turns his prodigious knowledge into a practical, chockablock, quick-reference, A-to-Z answer book for the rest of us. Look elsewhere for how to bone skate or trim out a saddle of lamb, how to sauté sweetbreads or flambé dessert. Look here instead for how to zest a lemon, make the perfect hamburger, bread a chicken breast, make (truly hot) coffee in a French press, make magic with a Microplane. It’s all here: how to season a cast iron pan, bake a perfect pie, keep shells from sticking to hardcooked eggs. How to carve a turkey, roast a chicken, and chop, slice, beat, broil, braise, or boil any ingredient you’re likely to encounter. Information on seasoning, saucing, and determining doneness (by internal temperatures, timings, touch, and sight) guarantee that you’ve eaten your last bland and overcooked meal. Here are 500 invaluable techniques with nearly as many color photographs, bundled into a handy, accessible format.

2 Combine the flour, sugar and salt in the bowl of a food processor and pulse a few times to mix. Add the chilled butter to the dry Ingredients and process until the mixture resembles coarse meal. 3 Combine the lemon juice or vinegar and ice water and add six tablespoons of the mixture to the Ingredients in the food processor. 4 Pulse several times until combined. Pinch a bit of the dough and if it holds together, you do not need to add more liquid. If it is still dry, add more of the liquid, one-half tablespoon at a time. 5 Remove the dough to a bowl or a well-floured board. 6 Knead the dough until it forms a ball. Divide the dough into two and wrap each half well in plastic wrap. Place half the dough in the refrigerator to relax for at least a half-hour. Reserve the other half for another use. 7 Prior to rolling out the dough, strike it with your rolling pin to flatten. This will soften it further. 8 Turn the oven up to 375 and grease the bottom and sides of a 8-inch pie plate. 9 Dust a pastry board or mat and your rolling pin with flour. 10 Roll the dough out, rotating it and turning it frequently and adding more flour as necessary to keep it from sticking, until it is the size of your pie plate and between 1 and ½ of an inch thick. 11 Carefully center the pie dough in the plate and press it into the bottom and sides. Trim or fold over any excess dough around the edges and make a pretty crimped crust by pinching with your fingers. 12 Place the crust in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Keys to Good Cooking

Keys to Good Cooking A Guide to Making the Best of Foods and Recipes by Harold McGee

The answers to many kitchen conundrums in one easy-to-use volume, from the author of the acclaimed culinary bible On Food and Cooking. From our foremost expert on the science of cooking, Harold McGee, Keys to Good Cooking is a concise and authoritative guide designed to help home cooks navigate the ever-expanding universe of ingredients, recipes, food safety, and appliances, and arrive at the promised land of a satisfying dish. A work of astounding scholarship and originality, Keys to Good Cooking directly addresses the cook at work in the kitchen and in need of quick and reliable guidance. Cookbooks past and present frequently contradict one another about the best ways to prepare foods, and many contain erroneous information and advice. Keys to Good Cooking distills the modern scientific understanding of cooking and translates it into immediately useful information. Looking at ingredients from the mundane to the exotic, McGee takes you from market to table, teaching, for example, how to spot the most delectable asparagus (choose thick spears); how to best prepare the vegetable (peel, don't snap, the fibrous ends; broiling is one effective cooking method for asparagus and other flat-lying vegetables); and how to present it (coat with butter or oil after cooking to avoid a wrinkled surface). This book will be a requisite countertop resource for all home chefs, as McGee's insights on kitchen safety in particular- reboil refrigerated meat or fish stocks every few days. (They're so perishable that they can spoil even in the refrigerator.); Don't put ice cubes or frozen gel packs on a burn. (Extreme cold can cause additional skin damage )-will save even the most knowledgeable home chefs from culinary disaster. A companion volume to recipe books, a touchstone that helps cooks spot flawed recipes and make the best of them, Keys to Good Cooking will be of use to cooks of all kinds: to beginners who want to learn the basics, to weekend cooks who want a quick refresher in the basics, and to accomplished cooks who want to rethink a dish from the bottom up. With Keys to Good Cooking McGee has created an essential guide for food lovers everywhere.

Down Home Southern Cooking

Down Home Southern Cooking by Dawn Michelle Everhart

The Recipes you'll find in this cook book have come down through our family for many generations. Some of them are newer than others, fifty years or less. A few of them have been passed down from mother to daughter, or grandmother to granddaughter, for over two hundred years. There has also been an occasional grandson thrown in from time to time just for good measure. All of them are tried and true favorites that your family will love just as much as ours always has. Although quite a few of the recipes are very healthy, none of them were created with that purpose in mind. What you will find in here is just Good Ole Southern Style recipes that will keep your family coming back for seconds and thirds. Many of the recipes were never written down before now, having been personally taught how to prepare the dishes by their elders. Most of these heirloom recipes have now been converted to Real Measurement: teaspoons, tablespoons, and cups instead of pinches, dashes, and handfuls. Many of the recipes got their start over fire pits and on wood stoves, these now have burner and oven temperature settings for you convenience as well. None of the recipes are etched in stone, I want all of you aspiring Southern cooks to feel free to change or modify them to suit your own individual tastes. That's what Southern cooking is all about, putting a meal on the table that you and your family will love to eat. Many a Southern Belle has snared the man of her dreams through his taste buds.

Cook's Encyclopaedia - Tom Stobart Cover Art

Cook's Encyclopaedia

Cook's Encyclopaedia by Tom Stobart

A descriptive compendium of just about everything we eat and how we cook it—selected as “one of the greatest cookbooks of all time” ( Waitrose Food Illustrated ).   Arranged alphabetically from Abalone to Zampone, Cook’s Encyclopedia covers the majority of foods and processes used in cooking. Hundreds of ingredients are described, with English and foreign synonyms and scientific names; recipes are given in many cases to illustrate the use of the foodstuff in question. Cooking processes—including bottling, brewing, brining, curing, smoking, and vacuuming—are explained in great and illuminating detail. The aim is to both entertain and to instruct—in particular, to give a sense of the essence and individuality of each ingredient. Tom Stobart traveled widely, both as an explorer and a filmmaker, and his book was informed by an eye for telling details.   Many fans say they would be lost without this book, which segues effortlessly between exhaustive reference work and handy recipe book, and back again. It explains the world of the kitchen, whether you’re a beginner or an old hand, revealing the facts behind foods, equipment, and techniques. Stobart describes how baking powder works, for instance, the temperature at which bacteria grow, and how to make your own tomato ketchup, so every time you dip into this book, you’ll be better equipped to return to the stove.   “A MUST, comprehensive, well-organized and well-written . . . a serious and important work of reference.” —Alan Davidson, author of The Oxford Companion to Food

Gumbo Love

Gumbo Love Recipes for Gulf Coast Cooking, Entertaining, and Savoring the Good Life by Lucy Buffett & Thomas McGuane

Incorporating stories from restaurateur Lucy Buffett 's childhood growing up in Mobile, Alabama, adventures traveling the seas as a cook, time spent working as a chef in New Orleans, and her philosophy of relaxation, gratitude, and seizing the day, this cookbook entertains and inspires as it serves up recipe after recipe, each tastier than the last. "A delicious love letter to the Gulf Coast's vibrant food culture." Since she was a young girl, Lucy Buffett has believed in the power of gumbo-the stirring, the transformation of the roux, the simple ingredients cooking up into something much better than just the sum of its parts. It's only fitting that she signs her name "with Gumbo Love" and that she makes a living feeding people the most delicious, soul-satisfying food. Her new cookbook, Gumbo Love , is a labor of love and includes recipes from all over the Gulf Coast. The dishes incorporate Caribbean, Cajun, Cuban, Mexican, Old Florida, and Creole influences. Lucy proves through her collection of recipes that the Gulf Coast has its own distinct flavors and traditions that make it a coastal destination year after year. And with some of the best seafood and produce the country has to offer, the Gulf Coast-beyond just New Orleans-has a vibrant cuisine and culture, making it a treasured culinary destination in its own right. Lucy combines over one hundred new recipes with old favorites. She lives by her mother's philosophy: "Life is short-eat dessert first," so the very first chapter is filled with delectable sweets like Classic Southern Pound Cake with Strawberries, Buttermilk Orange Chess Pie, and Salted Butterscotch Blondies. Since you can't live on dessert alone, you'll find Gulf Coast favorites from Tailgate Shrimp and Crab Dip to Lucy's Signature Summer Seafood Gumbo, and Crab and Corn Fritters, along with dozens of other seafood appetizers and main dishes. And if you tire of seafood, Lucy shares her family favorites like Daddy's Fried Chicken, Beer-Braised Beef Brisket, Southern Fried Creamed Corn, and Greens and Grits.

Grandma Betty’s Classic Casseroles: Easy, Nutritious, Low Budget, American Family Meals Easy, Nutritious, Low Budget, American Family Meals by Betty Yells

I started collecting recipes in the 50’s - some from Home Economics classes, some from newspapers and magazines, and many from friends and family. Now, 6 kids, 10 grandkids, and 4 great-grandkids later, I’m organizing all my old recipes so I don’t have to dig around in a cardboard box every time one of the grandkids asks for a recipe. The first book in this series is all about casseroles. Most of the recipes are very easy to prepare and easy on the pocketbook. No fancy ingredients or fancy names - just delicious and filling meals your family will love. They are great for family meals, entertaining at home, picnics, church potlucks, and family get-togethers. My family’s favorite is the Chili Rellenos Casserole. It’s great with a salad on the side. Give it a try. There are still lots of recipes in my cardboard box so more books will be coming out soon. Be sure to check back often.
