    Book summary:

    Do you crave chocolate? Swoon at the scent of vanilla? Whether you love one or both, Sharon Tyler Herbst's succinctly informative study of the pair will delight you. The history of each along with descriptions of how vanilla beans and cocoa are cultivated and processed into sublime edibles are intriguing. Herbst briefs you on all the forms chocolate and vanilla take, then moves on to recipes for dishes made with each and with both. These 40 recipes are seductive, sumptuous and mostly simple. Nearly all are over the top for sheer hedonism, including Chocolate Whipped Cream, Vanilla Curd (like lemon curd but oh, my!) and Black Magic Mousse. Herbst includes generous amounts of useful cooking information such as how to beat egg whites or to select and handle fresh berries.

    Book summary:

    Sharon Herbst's Tiptionary is much more than a "Dear Abby" of cooking. Take bread, for instance. Did you know that one beaten egg has the leavening power of half a teaspoon of baking powder? That breads made without fat, like French bread, have shorter shelf lives because fat holds the moisture in? That if you're going to use a glass pan instead of metal, you ought to reduce the oven by 25 degrees? The tips go on and on, simple enough for any novice to understand and appreciate, extensive enough for the most experienced cook to learn a thing or three.

    From abalone (should be alive when purchased, cooked within a day, pounded for tenderness, and not overcooked lest it toughen) to yogurt (is storable for up to ten days after the carton date, can be substituted for sour cream in baked goods, and keeps the intestinal system full of healthy bacteria--though not if it's been frozen), Herbst's culinary guide divulges more than 4,500 facts, shortcuts, and remedies on everything to do with food and drink. If you didn't take notes whenever Mom uttered some crumb of kitchen wisdom, and don't want to call her every time you overbeat the whipped cream, curdle the soup, and can't get a jar to open, it's no longer a calamity. The Tiptionary tells you the approximate volumes of common pan sizes, instructs that pecans have a fat content over 70 percent, and explains how to eradicate a lingering onion odor (from kitchen, hands, and breath). Because it's compact and wastes no space on color plates or fancy illustrations, there's room, and certainly a place, for the Tiptionary in even the most petite of kitchens. --Stephanie Gold

The authors have added many all-new entries on exotic produce and other unusual ingredients. An earlier edition of The New Food Lover's Companion was hailed by Bon AppŠtit magazine as "one of the best reference books we've seen, a must for every cook's library." This new edition has even more to offer! Among the myriad foods and culinary subjects defined and explained are cooking tools and techniques, meat cuts, breads, pastas, international foods, cheeses, eggs and omelets, herbs and spices, fruits and vegetables, candies and desserts, wines and cocktails, and literally everything else related to good food and enjoyable dining. Handy and helpful appendices cover a wide range of food-related topics. They include suggestions for substituting recipe ingredients, high-altitude baking adjustments, a microwave oven conversion chart, recommended safe cooking temperatures for various meats and fish, a guide to reading food package labels, seasoning suggestions to enhance favorite dishes, a food additives directory, and much more. The New Food Lover's Companion is a reference guide--not a cookbook--but it includes hundreds of cooking tips plus an extensive bibliography of recommended cookbooks and other food-related literature. Here in one volume is an invaluable companion for cooks--and for everybody else who loves good food. More than 6,700 entries plus line art that shows retail cuts of lamb, pork, beef, and veal.

    Book summary:

    The first edition of this popular wine reference was hailed by Jurgen Gothe of the Vancouver Sun as "the best new wine book in more than a decade." The New Wine Lover's Companion has been completely rewritten and updated to make it even better. No wine snobbery here. This book's style is relaxed and conversational, serving up information without intimidating its reader. Arranged alphabetically, nearly 4,000 entries include innumerable details on grape varieties; wine styles; wine-growing regions; wine label terms; winemaking techniques; how to buy, store, and serve wine; how to have a wine tasting; wine-testing terms; sizes and styles of glassware, wine bottles, and wine openers; ordering wine in a restaurant; opening and serving wine at home; temperatures for serving wine; and much more. This book is the only A-to-Z wine reference that offers phonetic pronunciations. It boasts a totally revised and expanded appendix enhanced with charts, line art, and sample labels. Praise for the previous edition came from many food and dining authorities: "&an invaluable, user-friendly reference. I learned something from the very first page I turned to, and keep learning as I keep turning." --William Rice, Food and Wine Columnist, Chicago Tribune . . . "A great reference! . . . excellent and accurate source for both wine professionals and those involved with wine purely for the love of it." --Jacques Pepin, cookbook author and TV chef
