Four Centuries of the Cooks, Writers, and Recipes That Made the Modern Cookbook
Author: Anne Willan,Mark Cherniavsky
Publisher: Univ of California Press
This gorgeously illustrated volume began as notes on the collection of cookbooks and culinary images gathered by renowned cookbook author Anne Willan and her husband Mark Cherniavsky. From the spiced sauces of medieval times to the massive roasts and ragoûts of Louis XIV’s court to elegant eighteenth-century chilled desserts, The Cookbook Library draws from renowned cookbook author Anne Willan’s and her husband Mark Cherniavsky’s antiquarian cookbook library to guide readers through four centuries of European and early American cuisine. As the authors taste their way through the centuries, describing how each cookbook reflects its time, Willan illuminates culinary crosscurrents among the cuisines of England, France, Italy, Germany, and Spain. A deeply personal labor of love, The Cookbook Library traces the history of the recipe and includes some of their favorites.

Recipes from the French Mediterranean - The Cookbook
Author: Caroline Rimbert Craig
Publisher: Interlink Books
Provence is the fruit and vegetable garden of France, where much of its most beautiful produce is grown. These ingredients, combined with Provence's unique identity, position, and history have resulted in a cuisine full of heart, balance, and soul--a cuisine that showcases its peoples' reverence for the produce, the changing seasons, and the land. Caroline Rimbert Craig's maternal family comes from the southern foothills of Mont Ventoux, where the sun beats hard and dry, but aromatic herbs, vines, and fruit trees prosper. This is her guide to cooking the Provençal way, for those who want to eat simply but well, who love to cook dishes that rhyme with the seasons, and who want to recreate the flavors of the Mediterranean at home, wherever that may be. With stunning color photographs to accompany the recipes, the book is also interspersed with shots of Provence's beautiful landscapes, reflecting the region's rich culinary culture.

Publisher: Ten Speed Press
From the acclaimed team behind Manhattan's three-Michelin-starred Elven Madison Park restaurant comes this deluxe cookbook showcasing the foods, ingredients, and culinary history of New York. After landing rave reviews for their transformation of Eleven Madison Park from a French brasserie into a fine dining restaurant, chef Daniel Humm and general manager Will Guidara decided to refashion their Manhattan restaurant into a showcase for New York’s food artisans. Instead of looking abroad for inspiration, Humm and Guidara headed to their own backyards, exploring more than fifty farms in the greater New York area and diving into the city’s rich culinary heritage as a cultural melting pot. In I Love New York, Humm and Guidara present an in-depth look at the region’s centuries-old farming traditions along with nearly 150 recipes that highlight its outstanding ingredients—from apples, celery root, and foie gras to nettles, pork, scallops, and venison. Included among these dishes designed explicitly for the home cook are reinterpretations of New York classics, like Oyster Pan Roast, Manhattan Clam Chowder, and the Bloody Mary. Lushly illustrated with photographs of the area’s dramatic landscapes and the farmers who tend the land, this unique ode introduces the concept of New York regional cuisine as it celebrates the bounty of this exceptional state.

No-Cook Recipes for the Special Chef
Author: Joyce Dassonville,Ehren McDow
Publisher: The Picture Cookbook
There has never been a cookbook like this, nor has there been a book that could improve the lives of families with special needs members more than this book has the potential to do. After a futile search to buy a book for teaching her daughter to cook, the author eventually wrote the book she had sought to buy. The first in a series of four cookbooks for budding chefs with special needs including autism, attention deficit disorder, Down's Syndrome, Alzheimer's disease, illiteracy, advanced or young age, THE PICTURE COOKBOOK is the result of the author's four years of efforts teaching her own autistic daughter to cook and bake. The title says it all, but the book is more than a series of step-by-step pictures leading the chef to a proud completion. All aspects of avoiding injury and ensuring success have been cleverly thought through. Using modern kitchen tools, the authors have written recipes that are safe for anyone to use, be they young children, confused adults or people with special needs. Furthermore, for the benefit of teachers and caregivers, instructions on the process of teaching someone to use the cookbook are detailed, as well as discussions of issues that can arise. The picture index allows cooks to easily spot their favourite recipes without the need to read or understand names. The book boasts lay-flat binding, extensive colour-coding, and beautifully laid out colour photography.
