Stalking the Divine
Gaining Access to the Cloister
Kristin Ohlson stumbled onto the Poor Clares at just the right moment. It was Christmas morning and she was feeling bereft. A former Catholic who no longer believed in God, she impulsively decided to attend Mass at a church where she could hear the Poor Clares singing. Thus begins this intriguing saga of a search for faith and a newspaper story. I would call this Divine Providence. Others ...
Asian Dumplings: Mastering Gyoza, Spring Rolls, Samosas, and More
Ten Speed Press
I love this book!
I saw this book in Powell's the other day and was taken by the concept that could learn to make two of my favorite foods -- potstickers and samosas -- with one cookbook. The recipes are easy to follow, so if you have patience and the desire to learn, you will be rewarded. I can't wait to explore the author's website and experiment with new fillings.

Empty Bottle Moments: Cooking With Clive
Baxter Press (Cooking with Clive)
review by [...]
About a month ago, I attended a private dinner in Houston prepared by Chef Clive Berkman. After the dinner, I was given this beautiful book of recipes, pictures and living. This wonderful book of recipes and friendship is dedicated to creating, as the title, says "empty bottle moments" - meaning that everyone had a wonderful time, the food is consumed, and the bottle is empty. Clive tells his ...
Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms
Ten Speed Press
Informative and Fun!
I've just begun reading this book. I've read the first 3 chapters of the third edition. I am enjoying it because it is clearly written. The scientific information is well explained. The explanations are illustrated when appropriate. Black and white as well as glossy color photos compliment the text. The table of contents, bibliography, and photo/illustration credits are well organized ...
The New York Times 60 Minute Gourmet
This is one of the best
This is one of my all time favorite cookbooks. I bought it after moving out on my own and realizing I needed to learn how to cook something more than pre-made sauces and hamburger helper. It is still one of the most used cookbooks on my shelf, and I own over thirty cookbooks. I needed to buy a new copy because the one I have is slowly falling apart from constant use. So my thanks go out to the ...
American Wholefoods Cuisine: Over 1300 Meatless, Wholesome Recipes from Short Order to Gourmet (Plume)
Buy this book!!!!
This is a definite "go to" book in the kitchen. We fluctuate between Vegan and Vegetarian, and this book fits the bill. If you are strictly Vegan, the dairy and egg prodcts can be easily substituted. Recipes are simple, easy to prepare, and "whole". You can't go wrong with this book. To the reviewer who questioned why Amazon woud use that "one star" review as the most helpful critical review ...
The Cook's Book: Techniques and tips from the world's master chefs
'The Cook's Book' by Jill Norman
The Cook's Book I am throughly enjoying refering to, 'The Cook's Book' by Jill Norman. As I am undertaking a commercial cooking course it has been my reference book to understanding the different techniques used in basic cookery.The step-by-step pictures and methods are of great help. The Chefs also give pratical hints on how to save a dish if things go wrong, like mayonnaise curdling! The ...

Eating healthy does not mean taking all the flavor out of cooking and Squeaky Gourmet leads the way in creating scrumptious meals that everyone will love! Every recipe comes with a beautiful picture and break down of not only how many calories ...
A Return to Cooking
It's still a "chef's" book, but not inaccessibly so. Best for seafood.
This may be Ripert's return to the kitchen (ie., this is arguably not "restaurant" food), but it's still demanding of money, time, and skill (probably in that order). I say money and time first because he uses top-notch and/or esoteric ingredients, which will require some investment and shopping (eg: live pibales: I never heard of them anywhere else before or since. Even the book says they are ...
Glamour's Gourmet on the Run
Hedonism in the kitchen...
The book is divided into three sections: 1.) Thirty-minute meal plans. There are 62 of them, and they range from fancy - "Romantic dinner for two" with lamb chops, herb sauteed potatoes, and zucchini - to casual - like the Super-Bowl-friendly "mini meal" with Buffalo wings, celery fans, and homemade blue cheese dressing. 2.) Complete party menus. For easy entertaining, there are 10 ...

Cafe Flora Cookbook
We have had the opportunity to dine at the Cafe Flora on a recent trip to Seattle. As vegetarians, we find it difficult at times to find restaurants that serve outstanding vegetarian/vegan meals. We were certainly impressed with Cafe Flora and were delighted to find their cookbook online. Since receiving the book, I have prepared a number of the dishes and they have turned out very well. It is ...
Japanese Hot Pots: Comforting One-Pot Meals
Ten Speed Press
Busy mom of three loves this cook book!
I recently bought this cook book and my three kids and I have been having a lot of fun exploring the recipes! At first I was a little scared that we wouldn't have access to the Japanese ingredients needed for some of the recipes but quickly discovered that the authors suggest alternatives for each and every item that may be hard to find in your neck of the woods. (i.e. A small Japanese onion can ...
Alfred Portale's Gotham Bar and Grill Cookbook
I have been a amateur cook for approximately 4 years and only fantasized about making dishes like the ones in this book. I found all of these recipes very easy to follow and the methods are not confusing. Preparing these kinds of elaborate dishes(seafood salad, soft shell crabs, bouillabaisse, and stocks, etc.)has always intimidated me and I never took the initiative to try. I am so glad I ...
The Uncommon Gourmet
Ten Speed Press
Fabulous cookbook with loads of easy to make, elegant dishes
I love to cook and own many classic cookbooks, but there is none that I use more frequently than this one. The recipes are uncomplicated, yet delicious, and are suitable for both entertaining and every day meals. Unfortunately, after several years of continuous use, my book is falling apart! I hope the publisher reprints it soon, so that I can purchase a couple of spare copies!
Marshmallows: Homemade Gourmet Treats
Marshmallows for the win!
This book is well written with clear instructions and makes fantastic marshmallows which aren't at ALL like what you buy in the store. These are softer, have more flavor, and most surprisingly, are less sweet. You start out by making a "base" out of sugar, water, and cream of tarter. This isn't hard, but it can be a mess. Make sure you take it off the heat a few degrees below 240 because it ...
