Show me a recipe with pecans, and I have to try it. Attributing her own love of this American nut to the state of her birth--Georgia is the nation's leader in growing pecans--and to the happy fact that her mother ""hardly made a cookie, candy, or pan of Sunday dressing without them,"" Kathleen Purvis teaches readers how to find, store, cook, and completely enjoy this southern delicacy. Pecans includes fifty-two recipes, ranging from traditional to inventive, from uniquely southern to distinctly international, including Bourbon-Orange Pecans, Buttermilk-Pecan Chicken, Pecan Pralines, and Leche Quemada. In addition to the recipes, Purvis delights readers with the pecan's culinary history and its intimate connections with southern culture and foodways. Headnotes for the recipes offer humorous personal stories as well as preparation tips such as how to choose accompanying cheeses.

A handful of small trees - plum, apple and pear - some raspberry, blackberry and currant bushes and even strawberries in pots suddenly joined my patch of potatoes, beans and peas. These fruits became the backbone of my home baking, the stars in my cakes and pastries and even inspired the odd pot of jam. More than this, I started to use them in new ways too, from a weekday supper of pork chops with cider and apples to a Chinese Sunday roast with spiced plum sauce. The hot family puddings and fruit ices we had always loved so much suddenly took on a delicious new significance.'

Whether you are the family berry picker, grocery store shopper or cook, here are the best time-tested recipes for cooking with the more abundant and popular species of wild berries indigenous to Alaska. It's all here, from currants to watermelon berries, from milkshakes to mincemeat. Included are recipes for breads, salads, main courses, desserts, preserves, candies, syrups, trail food, and even some beverages like juices, milkshakes, and punches. Many of the recipes are in the dessert category, but you will be surprised aw many other ways there are to use wild berries. Lowbush cranberries are particularly good in certain meat dishes, and are useful as a marinade for meat. Wild berries are fine for jam and jelly making, not to mention drying and freezing. Cultivated species may be substituted for wild berries in these recipes, but one must remember that they are often less tart than their wild relatives and adjustments in sugar added may be necessary."

But the recipes are not only about cranking up the heat. There are plenty of fragrant spices on the menu, too. Handy tips provide advice where it is needed, and the short introduction covers how to prepare chillies, and what equipment you need for efficient braaiing.

Praised in Britain as a return to a forgotten tradition of literary food writing, a delectable and surprising celebration of cooking through the story of an early spring meal First, Catch is a cookbook without recipes, an invitation to journey through the digressive mind of a chef at work, and a hymn to a singular nine-dish festive spring lunch. In Eagle's kitchen, open shelves reveal colorful jars of vegetables pickling over the course of months, and a soffrito of onions, celery, and carrots cook slowly under a watchful gaze in a skillet heavy enough to double as a murder weapon. Eagle has both the sharp eye of a food scientist as he tries to identify the seventeen unique steps of boiling water, as well as of that of a roving food historian as he ponders what the spice silphium tasted like to the Romans, who over-ate it to worldwide extinction. He is a tour guide to the world of ingredients, a culinary explorer, and thoughtful commentator on the ways immigration, technology, and fashion has changed the way we eat. He is also a food philosopher, asking the question: at what stage does cooking begin? Is it when we begin to apply heat or acid to ingredients? Is it when we gather and arrange what we will cook--and perhaps start to salivate? Or does it start even earlier, in the wandering late-morning thought, "What should I eat for lunch?" Irreverent and charming, yet also illuminating and brilliantly researched, First, Catch encourages us to slow down and focus on what it means to cook. With this astonishing and beautiful book, Thom Eagle joins the ranks of great food writers like M.F.K. Fisher, Alice Waters, and Samin Nosrat in offering us inspiration to savor, both in and out of the kitchen.
