A blissful feast : culinary adventures in Italy's Piedmont, Maremma, and Le Marche

March 3, 2020
Lust, Teresa, 1964- author.
New York : Pegasus Books, 2020.
xiv, 285 pages, 8 unnumbered pages of plates : color illustrations ; 24 cm
"Moving from the Italian Piedmont to the Maremma and then to Le Marche, chef Teresa Lust interweaves portraits of the people who served as her culinary guides with cultural and natural history in this charming exploration of authentic Italian cuisine. We learn how to prepare bagna cauda--a robust dipping sauce of anchovies, garlic, and olive oil--with Lust's relatives outside Torino. We learn about making hand-stretched grissini, Italy's iconic breadstick, the secrets of whipping up zabaione, a classic dessert of ethereal foam made with egg yolks, sugar, and marsala. Then there is acquacotta, a rustic soup that nourished generations of the area's shepherds and cowhands. In the town of Camerano, an eighty-year-old woman reveals the art of hand-rolling pasta with a three-foot rolling pin. Underpinning Lust's travels is our journey from chef to cook, mirroring the fact that Italians have been masters of home cooking for generations, so they are an obvious source of inspiration. Today, more and more people are rediscovering the pleasures of cooking at home, and Lust's account--and wonderful recipes--will help readers bring an Italian sensibility to their home tables."

"100 traditional yet surprisingly modern recipes from the far northern corners of Russia, featuring ingredients and dishes that young Russians are rediscovering as part of their heritage. Russian cookbooks tend to focus on the food that was imported from France in the nineteenth century or the impoverished food of the Soviet era. Beyond the North Wind explores the true heart of Russian food, a cuisine that celebrates whole grains, preserved and fermented foods, and straightforward but robust flavors. Recipes for a dazzling array of pickles and preserves, infused vodkas, homemade dairy products such as farmers cheese and cultured butter, puff pastry hand pies stuffed with mushrooms and fish, and seasonal vegetable soups showcase Russian foods that are organic and honest--many of them old dishes that feel new again in their elegant minimalism. Despite the country's harsh climate, this surprisingly sophisticated cuisine has an incredible depth of flavor to offer in dishes like Braised Cod with Horseradish, Roast Lamb with Kasha, Black Currant Cheesecake, and so many more. This home-style cookbook with a strong sense of place and knack for storytelling brings to life a rarely seen portrait of Russia, its people, and its palate--with 100 recipes, gorgeous photography, and essays on the little-known culinary history of this fascinating and wild part of the world"-- Provided by publisher.

Finding my voice

London : Headline, 2019.
xi, 339 pages ; 24 cm
Includes index.
Daughter -- Sister -- Granddaughter -- Wife -- Daughter-in-law -- Ma -- Earner -- Cook -- Username -- Woman.
Born to parents who had emigrated to Britain from Bangladesh, Nadiya Hussain's first roles were those of daughter and sister. Considering her later roles as a devout Muslim entering an arranged marriage and becoming a wife and mother herself, Nadiya questions the barriers that many women, no matter who they are or where they live, have to cross in order to be accepted or heard. Importantly, she shows us how, at the core of it all, we are essentially tackling the same issues throughout our lives despite our cultural, social and religious differences. Each chapter deals with a different role, and Nadiya writes with warmth, humour, honesty and deep emotion about what each one means to her and how she embodies all the different expectations of these roles in her life. Writing about growing up in a large family, who were culturally torn between two countries, to her thoughts on becoming a celebrity, after winning The Great British Bake Off, the later chapters cover her more recent roles of 'baker', 'Twitter handle' and 'TV presenter'.

Current research shows that following a plant-based diet not only can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes but, in many cases, also can reverse the disease, thwarting most of the complications associated with it. Registered dietitian Brenda David, a world-renowned authority on plant-based diets and lifestyle medicine, deciphers the latest scientific evidence and explains why and how a whole-foods, plant-focused diet can benefit anyone with this devastating condition. Well-designed plant-based diets work because they address the root causes of diabetes. They maximize powerful protective dietary components that are concentrated in plant foods and work together to ease inflammation and oxidative stress, stabilize blood glucose levels, enhance gut micro-flora, and keep blood pressure and cholesterol in check. At the same time, plant-based diets minimize the harmful components concentrated in highly processed foods and animal products.
