Overview
The all-in-one cooking bible for a new generation with 300 recipes for everything from simple vinaigrettes and roast chicken to birthday cake and cocktails.

For Alex Guarnaschelli--whose mother edited the seminal 1997 edition of The Joy of Cooking, which defined the food of the late twentieth century--a life in food and cookbooks was almost predestined. Now an accomplished chef and author in her own right (and mom to a young daughter), Alex pens a cookbook for the way we eat today. For generations raised on vibrant, international flavors and supermarkets stocked with miso paste, harissa, and other bold condiments and ingredients, here are 300 recipes to replace their parents' Chicken Marbella, including Glazed Five-Spice Ribs, Roasted Eggplant Dip with Garlic Butter Naan, Roasted Beef Brisket with Pastrami Rub, Fennel and Orange Salad with Walnut Pesto, Quinoa Allspice Oatmeal Cookies, and Dark Chocolate Rum Pie.

Cooking: Go-to gourmet gifts

When Alex Guarnaschelli finds something irresistible, she adds it to her personal collection of go-to recipes. That collection has been her constant companion, and with her new cookbook, The Home Cook, we now get to fold Guarnaschelli’s treasures into our own repertoire. Over 300 recipes are included and range from starters to sweets, condiments to cocktails. Guarnaschelli, the executive chef at upscale New York restaurant Butter, knows her stuff and knows how to give home cooks clear and explicit instructions for everything from her easy, use-on-everything Sherry Vinaigrette to a swanky Roasted Striped Bass with Barley, Pecan and Scallion Stuffing.

BOLD PLEASURES
Since State Bird Provisions opened in San Francisco, its talented chef-proprietors Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinski have won all kinds of awards, including a Michelin star. With the publication of State Bird Provisions, their debut cookbook, at-home innovators can re-create as much of this bold, California-contemporary cuisine as they want—and I think most will want it all. Brioza’s signature dish—fried, marinated quail, the state bird of California, served over a mound of fragrant stewed onions—is a great place to start. Then try one of Krasinski’s famed “ice cream” sandwiches—sheets of flat macarons filled with frozen sabayon. Complicated? Yes. Worthwhile? Definitely!

ÉCLAIRS AND BEYOND
Just the words “French pastry” conjure up a world of sweet elegance, a world most often viewed through the windows of a fancy bakery. Determined to make these delicacies doable in any kitchen, Eric Kayser—a fourth-generation French baker, esteemed pastry chef and founder of Maison Kayser bakeries—shares more than 70 of his famous recipes, all expertly detailed with step-by-step instructions, in Maison Kayser’s French Pastry Workshop. Kayser is our inspiring guide to making madeleines, mille-feuille, the spiced cake pain d’épices or a show-stopping Paris-Brest.
