    Peter Turchi: IMG Writing as Puzzle

Publisher Comments:

The Meatball Shop has quickly grown into a New York City dining destination. Food lovers from around the city and beyond are heading down to Manhattan’s Lower East Side for a taste of this breakout comfort food phenomenon. In this fun and satisfying cookbook, chef Daniel Holzman and general manager Michael “Meatball Mike” Chernow open up their vault of secrets and share nearly 100 recipes—from such tried-and-true favorites as traditional Bolognese Meatballs and Mediterranean Lamb Balls to more adventurous creations like their spicy Mini-Buffalo Chicken Balls and Jambalaya Balls.

Accompanying the more than twenty meatball variations are recipes for close to a dozen delectable sauces, offering endless options to mix and match: from Spicy Meat to Parmesan Cream to Mango Raisin Chutney. And what would a meatball meal be without succulent sides and simple salads to round out the menu: Creamy Polenta, Honey Roasted Carrots, and Marinated Grilled Eggplant, just to name a few. You’ll also find helpful tips on everything from choosing the best cuts of meat to creating the perfect breadcrumbs to building the ultimate hero sandwich.

There may not be a Meatball Shop near you—yet—but there’s a meatball for everyone (and lots more) in this crowd-pleasing cookbook that will have them lining up outside your kitchen.

Review:

"While James Villas's latest book, From the Ground Up (Wiley, Oct. 2011), explores the intrinsic pleasures of ground meat, Holzman and Chernow try to go one better in this well-rounded collection by mixing a variety of meats with an assortment of fillers, shaping them into spheres, then frying, braising, or roasting, and pairing them with an agreeable sauce. The authors gained extensive experience bouncing between New York and California restaurants, and currently run the Manhattan and Brooklyn eateries from which the book derives its title. Having palled around since they were teens, it was perhaps inevitable that they would stoop to recipe names like duck balls, Fightin' Irish balls (made with corned beef and cabbage), bunny balls, and grandma's balls (chopped liver and matzoh crumbs). Purists and haters of double entendre will find comfort in the more traditional offerings centered around beef, lamb, and pork. Most of the 28 meatball recipes are proportioned to provide a couple dozen orbs, 1.5 inches in diameter. Sauce options include a spicy meat sauce, cilantro yogurt, and a mango raisin chutney. Side dishes, salads, and desserts make up the second half of the book and reflect a more serious culinary attitude through options such as fennel risotto and chocolate walnut meringues. But if they also toss in a mini chicken ball salad, it cannot be helped. That's just the way they roll." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

I had no idea how many different types of meatball sandwiches I could make. Also the duck ala orange one made me drool. A carnivore book and a good one.
