The queen of cookery offers 100 scrumptious and seriously easy recipes, from cosy soups and roasts to delicious autumnal breads, in this second book to accompany Lorraine’s BBC2 prime time four-part autumn cookery series.
The enhanced edition includes video and two top-10 lists from the author.
If you’ve checked out my Diners, Drive-ins and Dives books or visited my restaurants, Johnny Garlic’s and Tex Wasabi’s, you know I’m down with all types of good food—and that I’ll do what’s required to track it down.
In Guy Fieri Food, I’m cookin’ it my way, from the perfect recipe for Pepper Jack Pretzels (from Mr. Awesome Pretzel himself—that’s me) to how to pull together a Red Rocker Margarita Chicken sandwich to a full-on vegetable Guy’d (bet you didn’t see that one comin’!). Before I’m finished I’ll have you throwing parties with everything from Bacon-Jalapeno Duck appe-tapas to Chicago Beef Pizza to Johnny Garlic’s Cedar Plank Salmon.
Fact is, I’ve been cookin’ it, livin’ it, and lovin’ it since I was just a kid, and it’s a privilege to help you bring home some of my own classic, big, and bold flavors.
Japanese cuisine has an intimidating reputation that has convinced most home cooks that its beloved preparations are best left to the experts. But legendary chef Masaharu Morimoto, owner of the wildly popular Morimoto restaurants, is here to change that. In Mastering the Art of Japanese Home Cooking, he introduces readers to the healthy, flavorful, surprisingly simple dishes favored by Japanese home cooks.
Chef Morimoto reveals the magic of authentic Japanese food—the way that building a pantry of half a dozen easily accessible ingredients allows home cooks access to hundreds of delicious recipes, empowering them to adapt and create their own inventions. From revelatory renditions of classics like miso soup, nabeyaki udon, and chicken teriyaki to little known but unbelievably delicious dishes like fish simmered with sake and soy sauce, Mastering the Art of Japanese Home Cooking brings home cooks closer to the authentic experience of Japanese cuisine than ever before.
And, of course, the famously irreverent chef also offers playful riffs on classics, reimagining tuna-and-rice bowls in the style of Hawaiian poke, substituting dashi-marinated kale for spinach in oshitashi, and upgrading the classic rice seasoning furikake with toasted shrimp shells and potato chips. Whatever the recipe, Chef Morimoto reveals the little details—the right ratios of ingredients in sauces, the proper order for adding seasonings—that make all the difference in creating truly memorable meals that merge simplicity with exquisite flavor and visual impact.
