Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As Good Eats enjoys its 14th season on the Food Network, its popularity continues unabated. Fans canand#8217;t get enough of Alton Brownand#8217;s wildly inventive, science-geeky, food-loving spirit. Itand#8217;s no wonder, then, that the first two volumes in STCand#8217;s Good Eats series were New York Times bestsellers.

Like Volumes 1 and 2, Good Eats 3: The Later Years packs a bounty of information and entertainment between its covers. More than 200 recipes are accompanied by hundreds of photographs, drawings, and stills from the show, as well as lots of science-of-food facts, cooking tips, food trivia, behind-the-scenes glimpsesand#8212;and bonus sock puppet instructions! In chapters devoted to everything from pomegranates to pretzels, mincemeat to molasses, Alton delivers delicious recipes along with fascinating background in a book thatand#8217;s as fun to read as it is to cook from. Good Eats 3 will be a must-have addition to the bookshelves and kitchen counters of Alton lovers everywhere.

Praise for Good Eats 3: The Later Years:

and#8220;A victory lapand#8221;and#160;

and#8212;Chicago Tribune

and#8220;The hefty book is filled with health information and tips on how to become a better home cook, all told in the breezy style that made Alton Brownand#8217;s show so accessible and fun. Plus there is a pattern and stickers for making sock puppets. She was wonderful, but Julia Child never taught you how to make a sock puppet, did she?and#8221;

and#160;and#8212;Oregonian

and#8220;Altonand#8217;s cookbooks are non-traditional to say the least. In addition to great recipes, theyand#8217;re loaded with humor, science, and great tips on selecting ingredients.and#8221;

and#8212;Northeast Flavor magazine

and#8220;Much like Good Eats the show, the book can carry many labelsand#8212;or, more to the point, defy labels altogether.and#8221;

Review:

"A famous chef walks into an eatery and says, 'Hey, prepare your signature dish and let's see if I can make a variation worth televising.' That, in essence, is the concept behind Throwdown! the Food Network reality show that premiered in 2006, the fifth of seven Flay vehicles to appear on the network. This companion volume is one part recap and one part cookbook. For true fans of the show, Flay recounts each episode in his trademark cocky prose ('I heat things up with Jamaican jerk jockey Nigel Spence') and in doing so provides a tasty travelogue of eateries, from Asian dumplings at the Good Fork in Brooklyn, N.Y., to chile cheeseburgers at the Buckhorn Tavern in San Antonio, Tex. Whether by accident or by design, his cook-off lineup is a treasure trove of comfort food. Meatloaf, mac 'n' cheese, wings, lasagna, cupcakes, and matzo ball soup are all in the battle: 51 items in total, with Flay and a competing chef each providing their own recipe, for a total of 102 recipes. The author has never met a dish that he didn't want to sauce, and this proclivity is much in evidence, including a black pepper vinegar sauce over pulled pork and a balsamic glaze over a roasted vegetable meatloaf. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

Celebrity chef and star of the Food Network's "Bobby Flay's Throwdown!" shares for the first time the recipes and the fun from his popular show. Includes more than 100 recipes and full-color photos documenting favorite show moments.

Synopsis:

The eagerly awaited first cookbook from one of Food Networkand#8217;s favorite competitors on the wildly popular Iron Chef America.

Synopsis:

The long-awaited cookbook from celebrity chef Scott Conantand#8217;s acclaimed Scarpetta restaurant

Synopsis:

Scott Conantand#8217;s five Scarpetta restaurants all garner rave reviews, but many know Conant best from his regular appearances on Food Network shows like Chopped (as a frequent judge) and on Bravoand#8217;s Top Chef. He and his restaurants have been cited on such lists as Esquireand#8217;s "Best New Restaurants in America." The subject of this cookbook, Scarpetta, received a three-star review from the New York Times and there are locations in Miami, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Toronto, all opened in just the past few years. This gorgeous book includes 125 of the restaurantand#8217;s signature dishes and#8211; Creamy Polenta with Fricassee of Truffled Mushrooms, Spaghetti with Tomato and Basil, Fennel-Dusted Black Cod and#8211; written with the goal of teaching readers to master techniques so they learn to really cook, rather than merely follow recipe steps without any thought of the hows and whys behind the method. The recipes and photography reflect the Milan-meets-Tuscany style of Scarpetta, interspersed with sidebars about everything from ingredient shopping to tips on entertaining at home.

Synopsis:

The eagerly awaited first cookbook from one of Food Networkandrsquo;s favorite competitors on the wildly popularand#160;Iron Chef America

Chef Marc Forgione opened his eponymous New York City restaurant in 2008 to widespread acclaim, becoming the youngest American-born chef and owner to receive a Michelin star in consecutive years. Upon winning Season 3 of Food Networkandrsquo;s The Next Iron Chef, Forgione joined the ranks of former and current stars and best-selling authors such as Mario Batali and Bobby Flay. He can now be seen competing as one of the stars of the beloved Iron Chef America. Forgioneandrsquo;s first cookbook features gorgeous photos throughout and 170 recipes with restaurant signature favorites including Chili Lobster and Chicken Under a Brick. The cookbook features not only recipes but also stories of an unlikely journey to where Chef Forgione and the restaurant are now. Flavor comes first, but Forgione is like an artist in the way he presents food. His goal with the book is not to just present a collection of recipes but to challenge home cooks and aspiring chefs, helping them to elevate their skills in the kitchen.
