Vertical Gardening book

Since Spring is here I thought you might be interested in a book on vertical gardening. Using fresh vegetables in our recipes makes everything taste better and more nutritious. The book is called Vertical Gardening: Grow Up, Not Out, for More Vegetables and Flowers in Much Less Space by Derek Fell.

Vertical gardening is great for people who don’t have much yard space or any. This covers container gardening, working in a strip area of 1′ x 4′, string supports, trellises, pergolas, raised beds, skyscraper gardens, and topsy-turvy planters. The vertical garden system reduces work, increases yields, and makes harvesting easier.

The Silver Spoon New Edition

“The quintessential cookbook.” – USA Today

This bible of authentic Italian home cooking features over 2,000 revised recipes and is illustrated with 400 brand new, full‐color photographs. A comprehensive and lively book, its uniquely stylish and user‐friendly format makes it accessible and a pleasure to read.

It also contains a new section of menus by celebrity chefs cooking traditional Italian food including Mario Batali, Lidia Bastianich, Tony Mantuano, and Rich Torrisi and Mario Carbone.

Il Cucchiaio d’Argento was originally published in Italy in 1950 by the famous Italian design and architectural magazine Domus, and became an instant classic. A select group of cooking experts were commissioned to collect hundreds of traditional Italian home cooking recipes and make them available for the first time to a wider modern audience. In the process, they updated ingredients, quantities and methods to suit contemporary tastes and customs, at the same time preserving the memory of ancient recipes for future generations.

Divided into eleven color‐coded chapters by course, The Silver Spoon is a feat of design as well as content. Chapters include: Sauces, Marinades and Flavored Butters, Antipasti, Appetizers and Pizzas, First Courses, Eggs, Vegetles, Fish and Shellfish, Meat, Poultry, Game, Cheese, and Desserts. It covers everything from coveted authentic sauces and marinades to irresistible dishes such as Penne Rigate with Artichokes, Ricotta and Spinach Gnocchi, Tuscan Minestrone, Meatballs in Brandy, Bresaola with Corn Salad, Pizza Napoletana, Fried Mozzarella Sandwiches and Carpaccio Cipriani.

The Sopranos Family Cookbook: As Compiled by Artie Bucco

Nuovo Vesuvio. The “family” restaurant, redefined. Home to the finest in Napolitan’ cuisine and Essex County’s best kept secret. Now Artie Bucco, la cucina’s master chef and your personal host, invites you to a special feast…with a little help from his friends. From arancini to zabaglione, from baccala to Quail Sinatra-style, Artie Bucco and his guests, the Sopranos and their associates, offer food lovers one hundred Avellinese-style recipes and valuable preparation tips. But that’s not all! Artie also brings you a cornucopia of precious Sopranos artifacts that includes photos from the old country; the first Bucco’s Vesuvio’s menu from 1926; AJ’s school essay on “Why I Like Food”; Bobby Bacala’s style tips for big eaters, and much, much more. So share the big table with: Tony Soprano, waste management executive “Most people soak a bagful of discount briquettes with lighter fluid and cook a pork chop until it’s shoe leather and think they’re Wolfgang Puck.” Enjoy his tender Grilled Sausages sizzling with fennel or cheese. Warning: Piercing the skin is a fire hazard. Corrado “Junior” Soprano, Tony’s uncle “Mama always cooked. No one died of too much cholesterol or some such crap.” Savor his Pasta Fazool, a toothsome marriage of cannellini beans and ditalini pasta, or Giambott’, a grand-operatic vegetable medley. Carmela Soprano, Tony’s wife “If someone were sick, my inclination would be to send over a pastina and ricotta. It’s healing food.” Try her Baked Ziti, sinfully enriched with three cheeses, and her earthy ‘Shcarole with Garlic. Peter Paul “Paulie Walnuts” Gualtieri, associate of Tony Soprano “I have heard that Eskimos have fifty words for snow. We have five hundred words for food.” Sink your teeth into his Eggs in Purgatory-eight eggs, bubbling tomato sauce, and an experience that’s pure heaven. As Artie says, “Enjoy, with a thousand meals and a thousand laughs. Buon’ appetito!”

Tacos, Tortas, and Tamales: Flavors from the Griddles, Pots, and Streetside Kitchens of Mexico

Discover the flavors of Mexican street food in your own kitchen

Americans are having a love affair with the taco. What began as affection for the fast-food version—that hard yellow shell filled with ground beef and mysterious yellow cheese—has blossomed into an all-out obsession for the real thing, with upscale renditions and taco trucks popping up from coast to coast.

Now, with Tacos, Tortas, and Tamales, chef Roberto Santibañez shows you how to recreate the thrilling, authentic flavors of the taquerias of Mexico in your own home. In addition to tacos, the book also explores the equally exciting Mexican sandwiches called tortas and hearty tamales, as well as salsas, condiments, fresh juices, and even desserts and refreshing margaritas.

  • Author Roberto Santibañez is also the author of Rosa’s New Mexican Table and Truly Mexican, as well as the chef and owner of Fonda restaurants in Brooklyn and Manhattan
  • Santibañez’s Truly Mexican was chosen as a New York Times Notable Cookbook of 2011
  • Using easy-to-find ingredients and simple techniques, this is the perfect introduction to real Mexican cooking for enthusiastic beginners and experienced cooks alike

While the flavors you’ll find here are exciting and complex, the cooking itself is anything but complicated. With Tacos, Tortas, and Tamales on your kitchen shelf, dinner will never be dull again.

“The trick to cooking is that there is no trick.” ––Mario Batali

The only mandatory Italian cookbook for the home cook, Mario Batali’s MOLTO ITALIANO is rich in local lore, with Batali’s humorous and enthusiastic voice, familiar to those who have come to know him on his popular Food Network programs, larded through about 220 recipes of simple, healthy, seasonal Italian cooking for the American audience.

Easy to use and simple to read, some of these recipes will be those “as seen” on TV in the eight years of “Molto Mario” programs on the Food Network, including those from “Mediterranean Mario,” “Mario Eats Italy,” and the all–new “Ciao America with Mario Batali.” Batali’s distinctive voice will provide a historical and cultural perspective with a humorous bent to demystify even the more elaborate dishes as well as showing ways to shorten or simplify everything from the purchasing of good ingredients to pre–production and countdown schedules of holiday meals. Informative head notes will include bits about the provenance of the recipes and the odd historical fact.

Mario Batali’s MOLTO ITALIANO will feature ten soups, thirty antipasti (many vegetarian or vegetable based), forty pasta dishes representing many of the twenty–one regions of Italy, twenty fish and shellfish dishes, twenty chicken dishes, twenty pork or lamb dishes and twenty side dishes, each of which can be served as a light meal. Add twenty desserts and a foundation of basic formation recipes and this book will be the only Italian cooking book needed in the home cook’s library.
