From the Trade Paperback edition.
In his three decades behind the stove, David Tanis has overseen kitchens in Santa Fe and Paris and throughout the San Francisco Bay area, mostly notable at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California, where he was a chef for nearly 20 years. His writing has appeared in "The" "Wall Street Journal" and "Fine Cooking "magazine and he currently writes the weekly City Kitchen column for "The New York Times." Tanis's "A Platter of Figs and Other Recipes" was chosen as one of the 50 best cookbooks ever written by "The Guardian/Observer" (UK), and his "Heart of the Artichoke and Other Kitchen" "Journeys"" "was" "nominated for a James Beard Award. His newest book is One Good Dish.
For twenty-five years, Alice Waters and her friends at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California have dedicated themselves to the ideal of serving the finest, freshest foods with simplicity and style. From tender baby asparagus in early spring, to the colorful spectrum of peppers at the height of summer; crisp, leafy chicories in autumn, to sweet butternut squash in the dark of winter, much of the inspiration about what to put on the menu comes from the high quality produce Waters and her chefs seek out year-round.
Using the treasures from the earth, Chez Panisse Vegetables offers endless possibilities for any occasion. Try Grilled Radicchio Risotto with Balsamic Vinegar at your next dinner party, or Pizza with Red and Yellow Peppers for a summer evening at home. Why not forgo green-leaf lettuce, and opt for Artichoke and Grapefruit Salad drizzled with extra-virgin olive oil? Or serve Corn Cakes with fresh berries for breakfast instead of cereal?
Throughout Vegetables, Waters shares her energy and enthusiasm for what she describes as "living foods." When she first began in the restaurant business, the selection of good-quality vegetables was so limited that she found herself searching out farmers with whom she might do business. Luckily, today's explosion of markets and organic farms across the country ensures that any home cook can find freshly harvested produce to put on the table. And with the increased popularity of home gardening, more and more people are taking their vegetables straight from the earth and into the kitchen.
Cooks, gardeners, vegetarians and everyone who appreciates good food will find Chez Panisse Vegetables to be not only a cookbook, but a valuable resource for selecting and serving fine produce. From popular vegetables like corn, tomatoes and carrots, to more unusual selections like chard, amaranth greens and sorrel, Vegetables offers detailed information about the seasonal availability, proper look, flavor and preparation of each selection. Arranged alphabetically by vegetable, and filled with colorful linocut images, Chez Panisse Vegetables makes it easy for a cook to find a tempting recipe for whatever he or she has brought home from the market.

From the bestselling authors of the ground-breaking Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day comes a much-anticipated new cookbook featuring their revolutionary approach to yeast dough in over 100 easy pizza and flatbread recipes.
With nearly half a million copies of their books in print, Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François have proven that people want to bake their own bread--as long as they can do it quickly and easily. When fans hailed their pizza and flatbread recipes as the fastest in their books, Jeff and Zoe got busy creating all new recipes. With a batch of their stored dough in the fridge and a pre-heated oven or backyard grill, you can give your family what they crave...
Home-made, mouth-watering pizzas, flatbreads, and sweet and savory tarts, prepared in minutes!
In Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day, Jeff and Zoë show readers how to use their ingenious technique to make lightning-fast pizzas, flatbreads, and sweet and savory tarts from stored, no-knead dough. In addition to the classic flatbread doughs and pizza crusts, there are alternatives with whole grain, spelt, and gluten-free ingredients, and the authors include soups, salads, and spreads that turn flatbreads or pizza into a complete meal. In just five minutes a day of active preparation time, you can create favorites like Classic Margherita, Pita pockets, Chicago Deep Dish, White Clam Pizza, and Blush Apple Tart. Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day proves that making pizza has never been this fast or easy. So rise...to the occasion and get baking!
No matter what the first day of a new week throws at you, no matter how looming the rest of the days before the weekend seem, a truly, madly delicious pizza promises something familiar, something reliable, something known. It's confirmation that all the heaviness of the world will be held at bay--if only for a little while--by a combination of bubbling mozzarella, sweet fennel sausage, and balsamic-glazed radicchio.
Beginning with the "Mother Crust" recipe, Lenzer argues that pizza dough is a tabula rasa for whatever healthy fresh ingredients you have on hand. To make pizza a nightly affair, she suggests preparing the dough on Sunday--in less than 30 minutes--freezing it, and simply transferring it to the fridge to thaw on the morning you plan to cook. Lenzer gives the timestrapped home cook countless combinations for a healthy, delicious (and quick!) weeknight meal.
Balancing lighter healthy alternatives like Summer Squash with lemon Zest and ricotta with indulgent options such as Skirt Steak, cress, and gorgonzola, in addition to bonus recipes including "Salad thoughts," "Small bites," and even a few ideas about wine, this book covers all the bases. Lenzer's comforting voice adds a homey touch to her artisanal recipes and immaculately styled photos.
When the weather’s warm, cooking outside on the grill is no chore. To broaden your grill-marked possibilities beyond chicken and steak, give pizza a whirl. Authors Karen Adler and Judith Fertig walk you through all the steps of preparing the perfect homemade pizza, and then cooking it on a hot grill. It’s easy: smaller pizzas go directly onto the grates, cooking in a flash. Larger pizzas can go onto pizza stones or into pizza oven attachments built for gas or charcoal grills. And of course, the vegetable and meat toppings can be cooked on the grill, too, for a fully al fresco meal. Adler and Fertig even suggest grilled salads and sides to round out your meal, using up garden-fresh produce in the process!
With 100 versatile and easy recipes for flatbreads, bruschetta, and panini, and more, you can choose from the classic Pepperoni and Mushroom Pizza with a Kiss of Smoke and Spinach Artichoke Pizza with Wood Smoke, to the more exotic Thai Shrimp Pizza with Coconut and Chiles or Lebanese Flatbread with Feta, Za’atar, and Chives, as well as gluten-free and vegan twists. Put pizza on the menu (and on the grill) tonight!
