Restaurant Favorites at Home (USED)

$15.99
More Info
Would you like to cook restaurant recipes at home? Have you ever been tempted to make a restaurant recipe only to be disappointed by the results? The editors of Cook's Illustrated set out to find out how to make restaurant cooking at home a reality. After collecting together hundreds of recipes they selected 150 recipes that excited them most and spent thousands of hours in their test kitchen making those recipes work. They trimmed each recipe to its essentials without compromising on flavour or visual appeal. Restaurants usually prepare huge batches of food, so the recipes were reworked to serve 4 rather than 40. As a result, Restaurant Favourites at Home offers tried and tested recipes for starters, soups, salads, main courses, side dishes and desserts as well as the usual wealth of tips, tastings and equipment tests that are so much a part of all the Cook's Illustrated recipe books.

    The Best of Gourmet 1994 (USED)

    $9.99
    More Info
    Nowadays, everyone who entertains is looking for outstanding casual fare that will allow them to spend more time with their guests. Dishes must be quick and easy to prepare (or able to be made ahead) and filled with the purest ingredients for optimum flavor. The Best of Gourmet, Featuring the Flavors of Thailand is filled with twenty-eight such menus-most are very relaxed, all are absolutely delicious.
    For example, after a chilly day on the slopes, you may want to treat your houseguests to A Ski House Dinner. Begin the evening around the fire with champagne and a large platter of ever-so-tender smoked salmon with cilantro cream. Later, roasted veal chops with shallots, tomatoes, and olive jus nestled on pillows of soft polenta make a rich, indulgent entree. And before everyone retires, a heavenly warm chocolate raspberry pudding cake, made the day before and reheated, is served with a glass of cognac.
    When the summer heats up, why not spend A Weekend at the Shore with friends? You'll have three clever menus in hand that take advantage of the season's abundant fresh produce, include plenty of make-ahead dishes, and satisfy hearty seaside appetites. On Saturday morning you can serve Breakfast on the Beach with buttery-rich baked blueberry-pecan French toast. Lunch Indoors includes a serve-yourself composed salad of classic favorites and a lovely rhubarb rice pudding. Then, after a long day in the sun, Dinner on the Deck promises a seafood meal to remember with curry-marinated mussels, followed by grilled lobster with Southeast Asian dipping sauce.
    Or perhaps a last-minute Beyond Backyard Basics dinner is closer to what you had in mind? This little gem of a menu featuresratatouille with penne-a heavenly jumble of roasted eggplants, onions, yellow squash, and red bell peppers, with plum tomatoes, garlic, thyme, parsley, and basil. For dessert, multicolored grapes perched atop pastry cream in puff pastry shells make a scrumptious and ever-so-pretty choice.
    So which menu will you try first? You'll find more than eighty pages of exquisite full-color photographs to help you decide. Altogether, this volume holds more than 350 recipes-including the very best recipes that appeared in Gourmet's food columns during 1999. There are hundreds of dishes that can be made in forty-five minutes or less (look for the clock symbol o); plenty of leaner and lighter selections (look for the feather symbol F); seasonal ideas for everything from apples to zucchini; and an impressive array of tempting sweets and snacks.
    This year's Cuisines of the World section turns to the intriguing flavors of Thailand with a traditional dinner for eight and a collection of Thai snacks. Dishes such as steamed red snapper with ginger, grilled beef salad, fish cakes, and coconut ice cream demonstrate the sweet, sour, hot, and salty tastes of this fascinating country. Informative primers and exquisite full-color photos add further insight.
    Twenty-four more brand-new recipes appear in a special section featuring Unusual Pastas and Grains. From fresh rice noodles to Israeli couscous to wheat berries, and much more, these unique pantry items will undoubtedly expand your palette of flavors.

    Good ideas are hard to come by, especially when dinner should have been on the table ten minutes ago.
    That's when "Gourmet" comes in handy. Month after month, readers rely on the magazine for quick solutions as well as planned feasts, and they're never disappointed. The Best of Gourmet, Featuring the Flavors of San Francisco is a collection of 33 menus and more than 325 recipes that were created in "Gourmet's" test kitchens during 2002. If you're looking for inspiration, look no further.
    As well-traveled foodies know, some of the most exciting, culturally diverse fare in America can be found in San Francisco. In preparation for this year's Cuisines of the World section, "Gourmet's" food editors gathered there to taste their way from one ethnic community to another. One food editor, inspired by the Northern Italian dishes of North Beach, decided to create an ambitious San Francisco Celebration with the Tuscan, Ligurian, and Piedmont flavors of the area. Her menu includes clams oreganata, heady with plenty of garlic, fresh oregano, and lemon zest; pansoti ("little bellies" ravioli) with a rich cured ham, caramelized onion, and walnut filling; roasted leg of lamb infused with little pockets of garlic, fresh thyme, and rosemary; baby bell peppers stuffed with onions, anchovies, cheese, and capers; and an ethereal finale-fluffy ovals of meringue with pistachio custard and chocolate drizzle.
    Another food editor envisioned the high life of San Francisco as it was portrayed in the glamorous detective films of the 1930s. Her Food Noir menu pays homage to the classics, but here you will find some delightful modern twists. Along with the Martinis and rumaki (broiled bacon-wrapped chicken livers) are beef tenderloin studded with pancetta; rum currant ice cream; and cinnamon chocolate "cigarette" cookies. But that's not all. This section also includes a few surprise recipes from San Francisco-including Irish coffee, crab Louis, and chop suey-as well as a cooking primer on artichokes with plenty of recipes for this succulent delicacy.
    The Menu Collection offers dozens more year-round inspirations. Planning a family getaway this winter? Here you'll find four complete Weekend in the Country menus that take you from a warming Friday-night supper of kale and white bean soup to a pampering breakfast in bed with baked eggs and mushrooms in ham crisps; to a hearty Saturday-night dinner of brined pork chops; to a memorable Sunday send-off that includes cheddar shortcakes with corned beef hash. The weekend is yours to enjoy with the kids, since most of the dishes can be made ahead of time.
    Or perhaps you're looking for relaxed warmer-weather menus? Transport your guests to the Tropic of Casual with dishes like island rum punch and coconut shrimp with tamarind ginger sauce. Or gather everyone outdoors with a Sizzle in the City barbecue filled with the Latin American flavors of grilled matambre (spinach-and-carrot-stuffed flank steak) and key lime cheesecake with mango ribbons. More international fare includes an Out of Africa experience with braised chicken and vegetables in a peanut sauce and, for dessert, mango fool. A Japanese menu, entitled The Art of Cool, offers elegance and clean, fresh taste. The steamed corn custards with crab are pure heaven.
    As always, "Gourmet" has the holidays covered in style. For the Fourth of July, we went All American with a feast featuring a sensational berry tart with ginger cream (shown on front jacket). And, of course, there are plenty of one-dish and low-fat meals from which to choose. You'll even find a selection of dinners for one, when you want to give yourself a treat.
    Hundreds of additional dishes from "Gourmet's" "Every Day," "Seasonal Kitchen," and "The Last Touch" columns appear in The Recipe Compendium. All recipes give an active time and start-to-finish time, so you'll know exactly how to plan your day. Leaner/lighter recipes offer calorie and fat information.
    From Gourmet's kitchen to yours-The Best of Gourmet, Featuring the Flavors of San Francisco is your one-stop source for the newest cooking ideas. More than 120 full-color photographs are here to entice you, or simply turn to the index and let the inspiration begin.
