Publisher Comments:

Michael Chiarello's fans have watched him on Top Chef Masters, the Food Network, and PBS. He's an Emmy Award winner and award-winning author, with combined cookbook sales of over 400,000 copies. Chiarello returns to the kitchen with a cookbook inspired by the soulful Southern Italian-style menu at his new Napa Valley restaurant, Bottega. It's rich with more than 120 photographs that convey the Bottega experience and 100 amazing recipes for Southern Italian specialties, which, with signature Chiarello style, are designed for the home cook to have as much easy joy cooking as eating. Bottega is Michael Chiarello at his best.

Review:

"Chiarello, author of six cookbooks and chef/owner of Napa Valley's acclaimed Bottega restaurant, brings his culinary creations to the masses in this vibrant and alluring collection. Chiarello shares not only a wealth of appealing recipes but also his cooking philosophy, believing that cooking is craft and home cooks can replicate the quality of his dishes through practice. He advocates starting with a well-stocked pantry of staples, with recipes for stocks, oils, crème fraîche, and duck prosciutto. He includes mouthwatering snacks and antipasti such as a bruschetta trio, green eggs and ham, and torn figs and burrata cheese. His potato gnocchi ravioli with egg yolk and sage brown butter is worth the price of the book alone. He also provides appetizing soups and salads, fish and shellfish, and side dishes. While he includes numerous tempting meat and poultry dishes, Chiarello's pork offerings are especially notable, particularly the crispy roasted pork shanks and whole-roasted pig porchetta. Stunning with more than 120 photographs, the book also provides a useful chapter on libations, which contains recipes for lavender limoncello, among others. Home cooks will appreciate Chiarello's clear, concise instructions and wide array of dishes that will whet any appetite. (Nov.) Palmer (Evolution: The Story of Life) and Gurche, who has worked with National Geographic and the Smithsonian Institution, have combined their skills for this stunning coffee-table — sized book tracing the evolution of Homo sapiens. Several qualities stand out: the accessibility of the writing, the evocativeness of Gurche's recreations of our primitive forebears, and the clarity with which the evolutionary path is explained, from 20 million years ago, with monkeylike ancestors, through the emergence of modern humans, 200,000 years ago. A significant strength is Palmer's ability to use the most up-to-date science to discuss the many controversies in the field, such as that fired by the 2003 discovery of the 'Hobbit' fossils on Flores Island in Indonesia. Readers will also benefit from informative sidebars, charts, clearly delineated time lines, and maps that highlight major evolutionary milestones. Palmer also traces the journey of early humans from Africa to Asia, Europe, and the Americas, noting cultural developments along the way--tools, fire, burial rituals, art, and warfare. Palmer and Gurche bring to vivid life the richness of the human heritage. 200 color photos, 25 color illus., 20 maps. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
