In 2007, Ivan Orkin, a middle-aged Jewish guy from Long Island, did something crazy. In the food-zealous, insular megalopolis of Tokyo, Ivan opened a ramen shop. He was a gaijin (foreigner), trying to make his name in a place that is fiercely opinionated about ramen. At first, customers came because they were curious, but word spread quickly about Ivan's handmade noodles, clean and complex broth, and thoughtfully prepared toppings. Soon enough, Ivan became a celebrity - a fixture of Japanese TV programmes and the face of his own best-selling brand of instant ramen. Ivan opened a second location in Tokyo and has returned to New York City to open two US branches. Ivan Ramen is essentially two books in one: a memoir and a cookbook. In these pages, Ivan tells the story of his ascent from wayward youth to a star of the Tokyo restaurant scene. He also shares more than forty recipes, including the complete, detailed recipe for his signature Shio Ramen; creative ways to use extra ramen components; and some of his most popular ramen variations. Written with equal parts candour, humour, gratitude and irreverence, Ivan Ramen is the only English-language book that offers a look inside the cultish world of ramen making in Japan. It will inspire you to forge your own path, give you insight into Japanese culture, and leave you with a deep appreciation for what goes into a seemingly simple bowl of noodles.
Adele Dawson's classic guide to the seasonal use of herbs for food, drink, and medicine.
- Clear directions for growing and using many wild and cultivated herbs.
- Detailed pen-and-ink drawings help readers identify 70 herbs.
With irresistible enthusiasm and an endless store of knowledge about the plant kingdom, herbalist Adele Dawson traces the human-plant relationship through the seasons, providing practical and enlightening information about every aspect of herbalism, including spring foraging, summer gourmet gardening, the preparation of remedies in autumn, and the brewing of healing potions in winter. The mysteries of preparing infusions, decoctions, tinctures, and essences are unraveled through the author's clear and cohesive chapters on how to identify, collect, and preserve herbs. Detailed pen-and-ink drawings show the essential elements of flower and leaf anatomy as well as 70 wild and cultivated plants in their budding, blossoming, and dormant stages. Sprinkled throughout the text are recipes for impromptu wild feasts such as milkweed buds tempura, directions for soothing hand lotions of marigold and milk, and an enormous variety of medicinal and culinary teas. In equal measure an herbal encyclopedia, a health-food cookbook, and a nature guide, this book deserves a place on the reference shelf of both the new and experienced herbalist.
Grains and seeds possess potent health-giving properties; they are packed with vitamins, dietary fibre and essential amino acids, and are known to support the immune system.

Amy Ruth Finegold has rid herself of the health problems that plagued her and discovered a whole new exciting way to eat by embracing these ancient grains - from amaranth to bulgur, buckwheat to teff. Get off to a good start with Breakfast options including Amaranth Porridge and Pineapple Bran Muffins. Soups include the fruity and tangy Summer Melon Soup with Tamarind, while Salads & Snacks also make a perfect light meal - try a Wheatberry Salad with Apples and Pecans. Satisfying Main Dishes to enjoy include Millet-stuffed Acorn Squash and Lamb Chops with a Warm Quinoa Apricot Salad. Seeds and grains work well in Sweet Treats, too; try Peach Pie with a Sunflower Seed Crust or treat yourself to Peanut Butter Quinoa Cookies.

2020 James Beard Award Winner With recipes for gumbos and stews, plus okra pickles, tofu, marshmallow, paper, and more Chris Smith's first encounter with okra was of the worst kind: slimy fried okra at a greasy-spoon diner. Despite that dismal introduction, Smith developed a fascination with okra, and as he researched the plant and began to experiment with it in his own kitchen, he discovered an amazing range of delicious ways to cook and eat it, along with ingenious and surprising ways to process the plant from tip-to-tail: pods, leaves, flowers, seeds, and stalks. Smith talked okra with chefs, food historians, university researchers, farmers, homesteaders, and gardeners. The summation of his experimentation and research comes together in The Whole Okra, a lighthearted but information-rich collection of okra history, lore, recipes, craft projects, growing advice, and more. The Whole Okra includes classic recipes such as fried okra pods as well as unexpected delights including okra seed pancakes and okra flower vodka. Some of the South's best-known chefs shared okra recipes with Smith: Okra Soup by culinary historian Michael Twitty, Limpin' Susan by chef BJ Dennis, Bhindi Masala by chef Meherwan Irani, and Okra Fries by chef Vivian Howard. Okra has practical uses beyond the edible, and Smith also researched the history of okra as a fiber crop for making paper and the uses of okra mucilage (slime) as a preservative, a hydrating face mask, and a primary ingredient in herbalist Katrina Blair's recipe for Okra Marshmallow Delight. The Whole Okra is foremost a foodie's book, but Smith also provides practical tips and techniques for home and market gardeners. He gives directions for saving seed for replanting, for a breeding project, or for a stockpile of seed for making okra oil, okra flour, okra tempeh, and more. Smith has grown over 75 varieties of okra, and he describes the nuanced differences in flavor, texture, and color; the best-tasting varieties; and his personal favorites. Smith's wry humor and seed-to-stem enthusiasm for his subject infuse every chapter with just the right mix of fabulous recipes and culinary tips, unique projects, and fun facts about this vagabond vegetable with enormous potential.

This comprehensive book is a reflection of the groundswell of enthusiasm there is out there for healthy eating - leafy greens in particular. Kale led the charge and now consumers are looking for new alternatives to these inexpensive, nutritious and versatile ingredients. Dozens of varieties of leafy green (67 to be exact) are featured, each with a photograph for easy identification - from popular ones like spinach, to the trendy such as kale and collards, to the obscure like mizuna or purslane, which may only be familiar to foragers, avid gardeners or world travellers. But the world is getting smaller every day and our grocery store selection larger, so it's probably just a matter of time before you see these at your local grocers. All the greens are listed alphabetically, and each listing contains: Scientific and alternate names, and types; Historical information including fascinating folk remedies; Nutritional information as well as tasting notes; Recipes that correspond to the particular green; How to buy, store, prepare and cook the green; Measures & substitutions, equivalents; Intriguing and entertaining sidebar boxes. Susan has created 250 outstanding vegan recipes - a wide and wonderful variety which can be enjoyed as main dishes, sides and even breakfast. Smoothies are the perfect way to incorporate more greens into your diet. The humble Brussels sprout is elevated to a whole new level in Brussels and Yukon Hash, dandelion is dandy in Penne Boscaiola and Napa simply shines in Grilled Kimcheese Sandwiches. Explore greens from other parts of the world that are now grown in the West - Yu Choy in Yu Choy with Saucy Shiitakes and Baby Corn or taro leaves that perfectly complete the recipe for West Indies Pepper Pot Soup. So stretch beyond your typical cooking routine and tap into a healthier, more interesting way of eating by simply incorporating more greens into your kitchen.
Today our kids consume at least three times the recommended daily allowance of sugar. And it's not just because they are drinking too many sodas. Added sugar lurks everywhere in our food - in yogurts and bottled salad dressings, in jarred tomato sauce and oatmeal packets, and on and on. And it's a real problem - excess sugar can lead to a variety of health issues, including cavities, of course, but also type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and fatty liver disease. Here to help concerned parents is a family cookbook that addresses the problem with reduced-sugar versions of kids' favourite foods, including dessert. Functioning like a cross between Eat This, Not That and Deceptively Delicious, Half the Sugar, All the Love is an eye-opening education, an action plan, and a cookbook all in one. It shows us how to shop smartly to avoid hidden sugars. Busts the most common myths about sugar (honey is not healthier, sugar substitutes are questionable at best). Gives seven easy tips for globally reducing added sugar at home. Helps us stock our pantries with better ingredients. And then offers 100 family-friendly recipes that minimize added sugar while maximising flavour, from granolas and yogurt pops for breakfast through big-batch sauces to make the tastiest dinners, to ingenious desserts - like the author's favourite Chocolate and Peanut Butter Snack Cake that gets its sweetness from dates.
While seaweed remains a core culinary ingredient in Asia, these traditions are enjoying a resurgence across the world, from California to Cornwall, Norway, Sweden and Denmark. Seaweed is one of nature's healthiest foods. Rich in vitamin B12, it is particularly good for vegans as this vitamin is usually found in animal sources. It also contains iodine, which helps promote a healthy metabolism. A little seaweed goes a long way and so it is perfect as a seasoning, whether in salt or infused in oils and dressings. It can be used to flavour both sweet and savoury, from broths, salads and stews to scones, shortbread, chocolate and granola. And because it is so good for our skin, there will also be recipes for body scrubs, seaweed soaks and masks.
Best-selling author of Braai the beloved country, Jean Nel is back with his considered and expansive book on getting the best out of your gas braai. The braai veteran has put together a collection of stunning, crowd-pleasing recipes that gradually teach you how to use your shiny new gas braai. "I've been cooking on open fires for a long time. Admittedly I'm a bit of a purist, insisting on making a wood or charcoal fire, but when I moved from cooking socially to catering my braai became a work tool. So I moved to gas.' With a 40% rise in gas braai sales in 2013 alone, it looks like South Africa is moving to gas braais too. They are simple and convenient to use, and they are much cleaner to operate than their smoke-belching cousins. Switch on, set the heat where you want it, and you can cook for hours. The idea for a book called Cooking with gas came from Jean's ongoing research into the art of cooking outdoors. Looking for new and interesting techniques or recipes leads him to the cookbook section of local bookstores more often than he would care to admit. However, he noticed a definite lack of good books on how to use gas braais. The best he was bale to find was a string of titles on gas barbecues. Most of them were either American or Australian titles. The thing is, those foreign devils cook differently from us. What they use their "barbie" for is quite different from what South Africans want to cook when they get together for a braai. In the spirit of Braai the beloved country, he has created a book that shows you how to cook the old favourites and experiment with new techniques. While he tackles some of the myths about cooking on a gas flame, Jean Nel also shows you how to cook anything from a roll of boerewors or a steak, to smoking salmon and slow-cooking the most amazing pulled beef you've ever eaten. Cooking with gas will get you outdoors cooking more than you ever thought you would. In it's pages you will find showstopper recipes for entertaining, as well as a simple, quick chicken breast you can pop on the braai mid-week for dinner. Like Jean, before you know it, all your friends will be asking you for tips and tricks when you are Cooking with gas!

When the farmers' markets start in earnest in April and May, Minnesotans' pent-up desire for fresh, flavorful produce is answered immediately by rhubarb, spring onions, and tender lettuces. Within just a few weeks, the bounty has expanded exponentially and, before too long, those connected to a crop share or whose market basket is perhaps a bit too accommodating may be wondering: Just what should I do with fennel? And how can I possibly consume all of this spinach?
Tricia Cornell comes to the rescue in Eat More Vegetables, 135 recipes arranged seasonally to correspond with our northern plenty, from a refreshing cold beet soup in the heat of summer to a healthy and comforting butternut squash chili for cold winter nights; from zucchini fritters any kid will love to an adults-only melon-vodka slushie.

Introductions to the many vegetables, fruits, and herbs stacked on farmers' tables and in the grocery store help home cooks see delicious possibilities in kale, cabbage, or tomatoes, while tips for preparation and storage encourage us to make the most of our growing season and extend the goods through fall and into winter, until the markets open up once again.

Many know rhubarb thanks to a shockingly tart introduction in childhood, likely countered by dipping the stalk in sugar, or as simply "the pie plant," a worthy component of custard or mixed-fruit pastries. Why not expand the concept beyond those idyllic, long ago summer days? A s ingredients and techniques have evolved to suit modern tastes, so too have opportunities to showcase this oft-overlooked vegetable. In Rhubarb Renaissance, seasoned writer and baker Kim Ode invites us to join her in celebrating rhubarb as one of the great flavors of horticulture.
In a lively re-introduction to this versatile vegetable, more than fifty creative recipes highlight uses from savory to sweet. Notes on rhubarb's historic medicinal uses, preservation advice, and kitchen basics including foundation recipes for roasted rhubarb set up a selection of appetizers, entrees, desserts, and breads. Expand your repertoire with clever concoctions such as Rhubarb Corn Fritters, Turkey Tenderloins with RhubarBQ Sauce, Spiced Couscous with Rhubarb and Figs, or Chop-Chop Sweet and Sour Stir-fry. More familiar applications are offered with a slight--and tasty--twist: Salted Caramel Rhubapple Pie, for example, or Zucchini-Rhubarb Bread. With these delectable combinations and more, Rhubarb Renaissance reinforces memories of grandma's kitchen but also inspires delight in the stalk's place at the contemporary table.
Kim Ode is a feature writer for the Star Tribune's Source section and the author of Baking with the St. Paul Bread Club.
