Everything that can be done with a cupcake can be done better with a cakeandmdash;with a twelfth of the effort and loads more wow power, using everyday pans, bowls, and even measuring cups.

Whether youandrsquo;re a kitchen klutz or a master decorator, you can transform a loaf cake into a retro vacuum cleaner for Mom or bake a cake in a bowl for a Raggedy Annand#160;doll. Need a piandntilde;ata for a birthday party? Bake the batter in a measuring cup. Or skip the baking altogether, buy a pound cake,and#160;and fashion itand#160;into a work boot for Dad or a high-top sneaker.

You wonandrsquo;t believe these creations arenandrsquo;t the real thingandmdash;and theyandrsquo;re so stunning youandrsquo;ll have to make them!

Synopsis:

In My Portugal, George Mendes, chef and owner of Michelin-starred Aldea, introduces us to the world of Portuguese cuisine, offering 125 mouthwaterandshy;ing recipes that showcase the wide range of dishes that come from this coastal country. The collection balances Mendesandrsquo;s popular restaurant recipes, such as his signature Duck Rice and Garlic Seared Shrimp, with his takes on classic Portuguese dishes, such as Salt, Cod, Potato, and Egg Casserole; Mozambique Shrimp and Okra with Piri Piri; Eggs Baked with Peas, Linguiandccedil;a, and Bacon; Butter Cookies; and more. His stories illustrate the wealth of culinary resources in Portugalandmdash;fresh seafood, savory meats, and crisp vegetables. With delicious recipes and stunning photographs of the country, My Portugal takes the reader on an unforgettable journey.

Synopsis:

Never before has there been a phenomenon like Momofuku. A once-unrecognizable word, it's now synonymous with the award-winning restaurants of the same name in New York City: Momofuku Noodle Bar, Ssäm Bar, Ko, and Milk Bar. Chef David Chang has single-handedly revolutionized cooking in America with his use of bold Asian flavors and impeccable ingredients, his mastery of the humble ramen noodle, and his thorough devotion to pork. 

Momofuku is both the story and the recipes behind the cuisine that has changed the modern-day culinary landscape. Chang relays with candor the tale of his unwitting rise to superstardom, which, though wracked with mishaps, happened at light speed. And the dishes shared in this book are coveted by all who've dined—or yearned to—at any Momofuku location (yes, the pork buns are here). This is a must-read for anyone who truly enjoys food.

When reading cookbooks I usually read the foreword to get a sense of the author's perspective and philosophy, and then page through the recipes, reading here and there when something strikes me. But, I read David Chang's Momofuku book cover-to-cover, and thought obsessively about it when I wasn't reading it--like I would an engrossing novel. The book is set up that way--it's the story of how the Momofuku empire came into existence, and, more fascinatingly, how the dishes evolved.

But, I read David Chang's Momofuku book cover-to-cover, and thought obsessively about it when I wasn't reading it--like I would an engrossing novel. The book is set up that way--it's the story of how the Momofuku empire came into existence, and, more fascinatingly, how the dishes evolved. Chang's love of the food and reverence for his ingredients is palpable.

Even though I'm (mostly, with the recent exception of occasional seafood) vegetarian, and Momofuku incessantly insists on celebrating meat, and even though many of these recipes are beyond what one could achieve even as an ambitious home cook, I just love this cookbook! There are several places where Chang really goes into incredible detail in tutorials so that even if you've never tried what he's doing, and never even considered trying it before, you'd have a tough time not doing it right if you follow his careful instructions.

I can imagine he's extremely difficult to work with, and his references to frequenting strip clubs made me think that he's likely a bit of a tool at times, but I have no doubt in his brilliance as a chef and innovator. I've been a little obsessed with trying the Momofuku restaurants since I saw Chang featured on the food porn episode of "No Reservations" with Anthony Bourdain last year, and reading this book just kicked my desire up to a frenzied pitch. Must get to NYC asap, and make several Momofuku stops.
