Julia Child - Louisette Bertholle - Simone Beck - Mastering the Art of French Cooking
Mastering the Art of French Cooking is for both seasoned cooks and beginners who love good food and long to reproduce at home the savory delights of the classic cuisine, from the historic Gallic masterpieces to the seemingly artless perfection of a dish of spring-green peas. This beautiful book, with more than 100 instructive illustrations, is revolutionary in its approach because: • it leads the cook infallibly from the buying and handling of raw ingredients, through each essential step of a recipe, to the final creation of a delicate confection; • it breaks down the classic cuisine into a logical sequence of themes and variations rather than presenting an endless and diffuse catalogue of recipes; the focus is on key recipes that form the backbone of French cookery and lend themselves to an infinite number of elaborations—bound to increase anyone’s culinary repertoire; • it adapts classical techniques, wherever possible, to modern American conveniences; • it shows Americans how to buy products, from any supermarket in the United States, that reproduce the exact taste and texture of the French ingredients, for example, equivalent meat cuts, the right beans for a cassoulet, or the appropriate fish and seafood for a bouillabaisse; • it offers suggestions for just the right accompaniment to each dish, including proper wines. Since there has never been a book as instructive and as workable as Mastering the Art of French Cooking, the techniques learned here can be applied to recipes in all other French cookbooks, making them infinitely more usable. In compiling the secrets of famous cordons bleus, the authors have produced a magnificent volume that is sure to find the place of honor in every kitchen in America. Bon appétit!

Nigella Lawson - Nigellissima
Nigellissima takes inspiration from Italian cooking to bring the spirit of Italy into the kitchen and onto the plate, pronto. At the heart of Italian cookery lies a celebration of food that is fresh, tasty and unpretentious; Nigella Lawson reflects this in recipes that are simple and speedy, elevating everyday eating into no-fuss feasts. Italian food has colonised the world. Nigellissima shows us how and why in over 100 delicious dishes - from telephone-cord pasta with Sicilian pesto to the crustless Meatzza, from Sardinian couscous to Venetian stew, from penne to papardelle, from rag to risotto, from Italian apple pie and no-churn ices to panna cotta and sambuca kisses - in a round-Italy quickstep that culminates in a festive chapter of party food, with an Italian-inspired Christmas feast as its mouthwatering centrepiece. From the traditional to the unfamiliar, here are recipes to excited the taste buds and the imagination, without stressing the cook. Nigella's gastronomic heart is in Italy, and in this new book she conjures up, with passionate relish, the warmth, simplicity and directness of Italian cooking, with an Anglo-twist. Illustrated with gorgeous photographs to instruct and delight Nigellissima is accompanied by a major new BBC TV series.
Nigella Lawson - How to be a Domestic Goddess
Nigella shows that there can be more feelgood mileage from running up a tray of muffins or baking a sponge cake than in almost any other cooking - and that it's not actually hard! A domestic goddess has to maintain her cool when faced with pastry, it's true- but with Nigella's guidance even shortcrust pastry can be pain-free. How to be a Domestic Goddess is the book that understands our anxieties, feeds our fantasies and puts cakes, pies, pastries, preserves, puddings, bread and biscuits back into today's kitchen and our lives. Everything from cup cakes to chocolate cakes, from brownies to bagels, from gooseberry-cream crumble to double apple pie, from pizza to pistachio macaroons, scones and muffins to cheesecakes and steamed syrup sponge, from baklava to a Barbie cake, as well as children's cooking, Christmas baking and other wonderful family festive treats.

Nigella Lawson a brit szakácskönyvírók legifjabb nemzedékének egyik legjobb és legismertebb képviselője, s mindemellett kiváló háziasszony is. Könyveivel sikert aratott hazája határain belül és kívül egyaránt. Nigella a Vogue konyharovatának vezetője, de rendszeresen publikál az Observer és a Times Magazine hasábjain is.

Mostani könyve szorosan kapcsolódik az azonos című televíziós sorozathoz. A Nigella falatozója a képernyőről már jól ismert recepteken kívül számos új étel leírásával is megajándékoz bennünket, melyek, legyenek bár a régi kedvencek izgalmas változatai vagy éppen vadonatúj alkotások, mind a szerző és a televíziós sorozat szellemiségét tükrözik: egyszerűek, frissek, eredetiek, és nagyszerűen illenek mai életmódunkhoz. Egy fárasztó munkanap után is egyszerűen összeüthetjük őket, akár a gyerekeket is bevonva a munkába és a szórakozásba, hogy aztán együtt csodálhassuk munkánk ínycsiklandó eredményét, és élvezhessük az evés örömét. Nigella minden vágya, hogy olvasói és nézői osztozzanak vele a főzés és evés nyújtotta örömökben, ennek köszönhetően már a receptek olvasása és a fotók nézegetése is gyönyörűséggel tölthet el bennünket.

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall - River Cottage minden napra
"Ebben a könyvben ismét megpróbálok minél többeket boldogabbá tenni. Ezért aztán leírom, milyen ételeket eszem nap mint nap otthon, mi a viszonyunk a kenyérrel, a hússal, a hallal, a gyümölcsökkel és a zöldségekkel; három éhes iskolás gyerek mellett hogyan zsonglőrködünk a reggelivel, és dolgozó szülőkként mit eszünk a hétköznapokon ebédre. Azt is elmesélem, hogy miért készítünk rengeteg ételt (köztük néhány abszolút kedvencünket) előző napi maradékokból. Megpróbálom bemutatni, a családi főzések alkalmával hogyan helyezhetünk nagyobb hangsúlyt a zöldségekre és gyümölcsökre, és miként hozhatjuk ki a legtöbbet a legértékesebb alapanyagokból, például a húsból és a halból. Néhány hasznos ötlettel rávilágítok, hogy az otthoni vendéglátás kevésbé ijesztő, olcsóbb és alapvetően örömtelibb is lehet. Az olvasók elé tárom a recepteket, amelyeket a családomnak főzök, és azokat is, amiket - amikor igazán szerencsés vagyok - ők készítenek nekem." Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall díjnyertes író, médiaszemélyiség; a szezonális termények fogyasztása és a lelkiismeretes állattenyésztés rendíthetetlen harcosa. Tizenöt éve készít és vezet műsorokat a brit Channel Four televíziós csatornán, ez a hatodik River Cottage-könyve. Korábbi munkái közül a The River Cottage Cookbook cíművel elnyerte a Glenfiddich-díjat. A The River Cottage Meat Book és a The River Cottage Fish Book egyaránt megkapta az André Simon-kitüntetést, a The River Cottage Family Cookbookot pedig a Gasztronómiai Írók Szövetsége az év szakácskönyvének választotta. A Guardianben hetente olvasható receptrovatot vezet. Hugh családjával Devonban él, egy kőhajításnyira a River Cottage HQ-tól, ahol ő és csapata tanít, valamint különféle rendezvényeiken fejezik ki a helyi, szezonális alapanyagokból készített ételek iránti szeretetüket.
Nigella Lawson - How to Eat
Hailed by many as their cookbook of 1998, if not the decade. How To Eat is far more than just an imaginative collection of over 350 uncomplicated, delecious recipes. Nigella Lawson combines a refreshingly down-to-earth practically with a passion for food and a writer's ability to find just the right words to evoke the taste of a succulent roast chicken or a home-made custard. Her excellent advice on how to organise your kitchen (and your life) for the minimum of fuss is interspersed with moments of sheer, unadulterated pleasure as she pauses to relish what she is preparing to eat. Now available as a high-quality, good-value trade paperback, readers will be able to buy two copies: one for the kitchen, one for the bed-side table. The reviews of the hardback were stunning: 'The one book you have to buy this year' Daily Mail. My book of the decade. I love this book: its prose, its intelligence and, above all, its workable, soul-warming receipes, Nigel Slater.

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall - Every Day
Putting food on the table for the family quickly and economically doesn't mean you have to compromise on quality. This book shows how Hugh's approach to food can be adapted to suit any growing, working family, or busy young singles and couples for that matter. Breakfast, baking, lunchboxes, quick suppers, healthy snacks, eating on the move and weekend cooking for the week ahead - all these, and more, will be covered in River Cottage Every Day. As Hugh says: 'I make no prior assumptions about where you shop, what you may or may not know about growing vegetables or keeping livestock, whether you can tell the difference between a swede and turnip, or know what to do with a belly of pork and a breast of lamb. Instead, I'll show you easy and confidence-inspiring ways with cuts of meat, types of fish and other ingredients you may not have tried before. And I'll offer you new approaches that I hope will breath new life to familiar staples, like rice, spuds, beans, and your daily bread. Above all, I intend to tempt you irresistibly towards a better life with food, with a whole raft of recipes that I think you will love. I hope some of them will become your absolute favourites, and the favourites of your dear friends and beloved family. I hope that the dishes you like best will infiltrate and influence your cooking, giving you increased confidence and fresh ideas. In short, I hope that before long, cooking simple and delicious food from the best seasonal ingredients becomes second nature and first priority for you, not just once in a while, but every day.'
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall - Veg Every Day
'Call me power-crazed, but I'm trying to change your life here. The object of the exercise is to persuade you to eat more vegetables. Many more vegatables. And I hope to do so not by shouting from a soapbox, but through sheer temptation...'
