We are pleased to share a promotion for our next EYBD Book, Carbs by Laura Goodman.

Who is Laura Goodman? From her award winning blog She is Butters, she tells us:  "I'm Laura Goodman and I like making pound cakes and silk pies and trifles layered with Swiss Roll. Puddings made of cream cheese and vanilla and custard. Big old bangerz that make everyone feel a bit drunk. "Sorry, it sounded like you said you made the frosting out of Crunchies and mascarpone?"... Food that makes you feel alive."

Even though the She is Butters' blog hasn't been updated since December of 2016, Laura continues to write about food and travel for the Sunday Times, Lucky Peach, Foodism, The Pool, Eater, and Food52. Carbs is her debut cookbook. 

Carbs are what makes life worth living. Pasta and bread are a match made in culinary heaven. With a healthy sprinkling of humor, Laura delivers 85 recipes from rice bowls, pizzas, muffins and more. Retro-spired photographs accompany many of the recipes add a touch of whimsy. Measurements for ingredients are given in both weight and volume. 

Dishes that I have marked to make (I just received the book) include: Bread gratin, Roast potatoes with crunchy rice and Marmalade bread pudding. Dr. Atkins is rolling over in his grave (take note, he's dead and we're eating all the pasta!) Of course, I make that statement in jest. 

This isn't a cookbook filled with butter laden, guilty pleasures. Laura shares recipes for making homemade pasta and pizza doughs, risottos and vegetables play heavily in many of the recipes. This is a cookbook that embraces the comfort found in carbohydrates and transforms them into go-to dishes that will please everyone gathered around your table.

The Mezze Cookbook

Salma Hage, a Lebanese housewife from Mazarat Tiffah (Apple Hamlet) in the mountains of the Kadisha Valley in North Lebanon, has over fifty years' experience cooking. Learning to cook from her mother, mother-in-law and sisters-in-law, and, helping to bring up her nine brothers and two sisters, taught her well how to cook for the whole family. She has also spent many years working professionally as a cook and is the author of The Lebanese Kitchen (to be reissued in June as The Lebanese Cookbook), The Middle Eastern Vegetarian Cookbook and most recently The Mezze Cookbook: Sharing Plates from the Middle East.

 

This title may be Salma's most approachable to date with 140 recipes that are simply prepared and meant to be shared. Mezze is similar to tapas where dishes are prepared and presented in a manner which triggers those gathered around the table to slow down and start conversations all while experimenting with different flavors from the many offerings.

Kale and chile rolls, Cod goujons with garlic dip, and Fried potatoes with preserved lemon and mint are a few examples of the recipes you will find here. The pastries and breads chapter offer Sweet blessed buns, Halloumi-stuffed loaf, and Spinach and walnut tartlets. Salma finishes up with sweets and drinks which highlight all the flavors of the Middle East with recipes for Tahini brownies, Arabic coffee mousse, and Rose and cardamom shortbread. There is something for everyone in this stunningly photographed book.

We are pleased to share a promotion for our next EYBD Book, Simply Hot Pots: A Complete Course in Japanese Nabemono and Other Asian One-Pot Meals by Amy Kimoto-Kahn.

The author is the voice behind the blog Easy Peasy Japanesey. Her first cookbook Simply Ramen brings homemade ramen to your table with a delicious fusion of seventy recipes, including soup bases, noodles, toppings, and sides. We will be indexing this title soon as well as providing you with an EYBD Preview.

Simply Hot Pots delivers all we need to know about Japanese hot pot cooking.  In Japan, hot pot cooking is called nabemono, or nabe, and cooked in donabe, traditional clay pots. Comforting, healthy, affordable, easy, and quick - especially when you make your broth bases in advance - these satisfying one-pot meals can be customized for anyone.

The customization factor is huge for me. My son and I love all types of vegetables, seafood and flavors. My husband, not so much. Lately, I've been craving the warmth and comfort of deep rich broths, noodles and assortments of vegetables with a wide range of textures. With two palates on both sides of the spectrum here in our home, hot pot cooking will be the answer to satisfy everyone. 

Amy lays out every detail with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions and stunning photos. The chapters on side dishes and desserts include recipes such as Chicken delicious (a play on fried chicken), Mom's pork wontons, and Chocolate coconut mochi cake.

Gnocchi, Solo Gnocchi by Christine Y. Hickman

Cookbook lovers are a discerning group with high expectations that must be met for a title to enter our coveted collection. Some of us shy away from restaurant books and others only collect those high-end tomes. The criteria for the type of books we enjoy varies as much as our individual personalities.

Single-subject books can be a hard sell but seem to be experiencing a resurgence of late. A well-done single-subject title researches, works through the intricacies of a recipe and provides us with the technique and knowledge we need to master that particular dish. Such a title is Christine Y. Hickman's Gnocchi, Solo Gnocchi: A Comprehensive Tribute to Italy's Other Favorite First Course.



Christine is the voice behind the Gnocchi Sonomarcella website and is an experienced teacher, caterer, and writer who divides her time between New Mexico and Italy. Her cookbook is the book on gnocchi - sharing the history and basics of this seemingly simple but complicated dumpling that requires skill, a light hand and dedication to master. 

The detailed instructions and selection of recipes here are outstanding (Christine's tutorial video is recommended watching.) From basic gnocchi to filled varieties, the author has laid it all out for us. The sauces, gratins and even sweet dessert gnocchi are impressive and one can spend hours in the kitchen with this creative collection of recipes for this versatile Italian classic.

At this time, you may order Gnocchi, Solo Gnocchi directly from the author's site which our BUY BOOK button links to. The photographs are old school but plentiful and clearly reflect the finished dishes. This does not distract from the brilliance of this title. The two plus pages of process photographs for the basic gnocchi recipe are immensely helpful. Ingredient amounts are given in pounds and ounces for certain ingredients (potatoes, cheese, sausage) and volume for others (cup, tablespoons, etc), there are no metric measurements. If you wish to master gnocchi, you must order this book. 

I have made a few of the sauce recipes and they are spot on. I plan to have a gnocchi weekend soon that will involve a number of Italian dishes. Who wants to come over?

Our  takes you inside this masterful title and features the following 

 

To celebrate Christine's book, we are offering a gnocchi prize package to one worldwide winner (see details below). The author has autographed a copy of her book which I have in my possession. Our friends at OXO are providing a ricer OXO Good Grips ricer and a fine mesh strainer and I am providing a Gnocchi board and stripper - all these items will be shipped from my home to yours.

The author is providing one autographed copy of her book, OXO is providing one adjustable ricer and fine mesh strainer, and I am adding a gnocchi board to this giveaway open to EYB Members worldwide. One of the entry options is to answer the following question in the comments section of this blog post.

Cassoulet, A Journey

For years, friends have been raving about Rancho Gordo ("RG") and when I received the Desert Island bean sampler kit for the holidays (thanks Darcie), I decided to find out more about this company and their products.

Apparently, I do judge a bean by its cover and RG's beans are colorful with fun packaging. The humble generic bean in the clear bags at the grocery store are wallflowers while RG's beans' dance card is full. The quality of RG's beans are superior and to find out why - I urge you to read Steve Sando's Rancho Gordo story on their website.

When I reached out to the company, I asked about their cookbooks first (of course) and then requested a cassoulet kit to review and one to giveaway to our members. Thus my cassoulet journey began with a single bean (or bag of beans), as I plunged myself into Kate Hill's Cassoulet: A French Obsession.

 

Kate's book is packed with history and recipes for this dish, and is recommended reading before you begin your journey. While cassoulet is a French classic, each cook imparts their own personality to the dish as I did with Kate's recipe (which is similar to a recipe on the RG site).  Our indexed online recipes total 150 cassoulet variations alone, while our recipe library boasts 850! For those unfamiliar with the definition of this dish: "Cassoulet is a rich, slow-cooked casserole containing meat, pork skin and white beans. The dish originated in the south of France. It is named after its traditional cooking vessel, the cassole, a deep, round, earthenware pot with slanting sides."

I prepared the cassoulet in Le Creuset, making the beans in my Le Creuset Dutch Oven in fig, one of Le Creuset's new calming colors for spring and layering my dish in a vintage Le Creuset roasting pot. 

 

There is a time commitment to prepare this masterpiece of a dish, but the flavor is well worth the investment. I grew up on navy beans simmered all day with a ham bone. My mom wasn't a great cook but she made a mean pot of beans. We'd have the beans and mashed potatoes for dinner and the next day a bean and mashed potato sandwich. Don't knock it until you try it. 

While that bean dish is glorified due to being steeped in nostalgia, the cassoulet is life giving. Warm, rich with a deep pork flavor and a bite from the peppercorns (I used extra). My cassoulet was made with chicken and sausage. The chicken was juicy and fall apart tender, while the skin was crispy. The perfect bite for me was a spoonful of the beans with the toasted breadcrumbs moistened with the fat from the meats. I took Kate's recipe in the book and ran with it - that is what cooking is all about. Paying homage to a classic dish but making it your own. 

Just as the cassoulet is a French classic, so is Le Creuset cookware. As mentioned above, while I used the new fig colored Dutch Oven for the beans, I layered the cassoulet in a vintage Le Creuset roasting pot. Mixing the new with the old works in cooking and in cookware. 

Valentine's Day is coming up next week - one of Le Creuset's spring colors would be a beautiful gift. I adore these new hues and want to redo my entire kitchen with tones of fig and sea salt. The new colors are calming, soothing and elegant all still made with the same quality Le Creuset is famous for. Someone tell my husband I want a braiser in sea salt. Thank you. 

As if you need an incentive to buy more French cookware: if you purchase $150 worth of products from Le Creuset you will receive two adorable heart ramekins using the code LOVE.

I hope to bring you more information on Rancho Gordo's other cookbooks, especially French Beans and will try to convince my friends at Le Creuset to bundle a giveaway for Mother's Day.

 


Rancho Gordo is providing one Cassoulet Kit (which includes two pounds of their cassoulet beans and a copy of Kate Hill's Cassoulet) to EYB Members in the US.  One of the entry options is to answer the following question in the comments section of this blog post.

Which Rancho Gordo product would you like to try and which of Le Creuset's spring colors is your favorite?

After culinary school and training in the UK, he served as head chef at Cheval in Mumbai, before travelling around India on a food tour for six months. After this, he returned to the UK and worked under Vivek Singh at The Cinnamon Kitchen. 

In April 2015, he brought his vision to his own 20 seat pop-up restaurant that just happened to be housed in a shipping container. Two years later, he opened Kricket Soho which has grown now to three locations. Bowlby serves up seasonal, modern Indian plates and drinks that combine British ingredients with the flavours, aromas and spices of India. 

Kricket: An Indian-inspired Cookbook is the debut cookbook from the talented chef that shares recipes that prove that Indian cuisine needn't be daunting. He promises if we learn the basics, the possibilities are endless.
 

The majority of the recipes are ideal for weekend meals and entertaining. Ingredients shouldn't be difficult to procure, and the dishes are overall very approachable. These are Indian-inspired recipes and not for a purist looking for strictly "authentic" Indian classics. This is the type of book I love - exciting takes on a cuisine that paints a picture more of the chef's personality than reinventing classics. We have Madhur for the classics, we can look to Bowlby for inspired dishes that pay homage to Indian flavours.
