New Cookbooks On Our Shelves

Those with acid-reflux no longer have to suffer from bland food choices with these 125 delicious, sumptuous, and guaranteed-to-battle-acid reflux recipes.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (acid reflux disease) is a condition that affects upwards to 20-percent of the population of industralized nations, and grumpy sufferers, forced to modify their diets, can now rest easy, because Dominique Devito has come up with more than 100 recipes that remove the acid but not the taste! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, appetizers, and dessert are all covered, and recipes include: No Problemo Salsa, Black Bean Soup, Chicken Breast & Prosciutto, Apple & Arugula Salad, Sweet Potato No-Fries, Breakfast Smoothie, and more!

Indian food is ravishing, exotic, addictively flavorful, but has a reputation for being too difficult for the average cook. Not anymore. When Raghavan Iyer moved from Mumbai to Minneapolis, he had to learn how to make all his beloved dishes using supermarket ingredients and now he shows us his secrets in Indian Cooking Unfolded.

This book makes obvious why Raghavan won an IACP Award of Excellence for Cooking Teacher of the Year: His voice is clear and encouraging, his directions faultless, his recipes authentic yet completely accessible. But it s also the stunning new format of the book that makes this a perfect introduction to Indian food. Each section opens with a fully illustrated, full-color foldout lesson in technique that leads the reader step-by-step through one foundation recipe, from a starter poppadums and spicy dips to roti, the homemade griddle bread, to a smoky yellow split pea dal, and more. There are seven altogether; do all seven, and they ll make one knockout meal.

Following the foldout lesson are more recipes in the same category, each carefully chosen to exemplify an essential element in Indian cooking how to make ghee, paneer, raita, chutney, lassi or expand your repertoire. Festive Lamb Chops with Cardamom. Spinach Phyllo Samosas. Sassy Chickpea Curry. Creamy Wild Salmon with Kale. Turmeric Hash Browns. Saffron-Pistachio Ice Cream Bars. There are 100 recipes in all, with no complex spice blends, no hard-to-find ingredients, no list longer than ten ingredients, and no excessive prep time needed.
