The all-in-one cooking bible for a new generation with 300 recipes for everything from simple vinaigrettes and roast chicken to birthday cake and cocktails.
For Alex Guarnaschelli—whose mother edited the seminal 1997 edition of The Joy of Cooking, which defined the food of the late twentieth century—a life in food and cookbooks was almost predestined. Now an accomplished chef and author in her own right (and mom to a young daughter), Alex pens a cookbook for the way we eat today. For generations raised on vibrant, international flavors and supermarkets stocked with miso paste, harissa, and other bold condiments and ingredients, here are 300 recipes to replace their parents’ Chicken Marbella, including Glazed Five-Spice Ribs, Roasted Eggplant Dip with Garlic Butter Naan, Roasted Beef Brisket with Pastrami Rub, Fennel and Orange Salad with Walnut Pesto, Quinoa Allspice Oatmeal Cookies, and Dark Chocolate Rum Pie.
Whether you are a novice, intermediate or card carrying foodie, this book is a must have for your cookbook collection. There are lots of yummy selections for apps, snacks, entrees, and desserts. All of the recipes come with straightforward directions. If you are an Alex fan or simply want to expand your repertoire further, you will love this book.
Wonderful cookbook from a wonderful chef
I purchased this cookbook on pre-order and downloaded it immediately after receiving notification it was available. It is packed with recipes of all kinds. I spent last night and this afternoon looking through it and bookmarking the recipes that I want to try ASAP.
Chef Alex is one of my favorite chefs; I enjoy her on Food Network and loved her Comfort Foods cookbook.
