Women Chefs of New York is a colorful showcase of twenty-five leading female culinary talents in the restaurant capital of the world. In a fiercely competitive, male-dominated field, these women have risen to the top, and their stories--and their recipes--make it abundantly clear why. Food writer Nadia Arumugam braves the sharp knives and the sputtering pans of oil for intimate interviews, revealing the chefs' habits, quirks, food likes, and dislikes, their proudest achievements, and their aspirations. Each chef contributes four signature recipes--appetizers, entrees, and desserts--to recreate the experience of a meal from their celebrated kitchens. This gorgeous full-color cookbook includes portraits of these inspiring women, inviting interior shots of their restaurants, and mouthwatering pictures of the featured dishes, styled by the chefs themselves--all captured by celebrated food photographer Alice Gao.

Women Chefs of New York features all-stars such as Amanda Freitag, Jody Williams, April Bloomfield (The Spotted Pig, The Breslin), Gabrielle Hamilton (Prune), Christina Tosi (Momofuku Milk Bar), and Alex Raij (La Vara, Txikito, El Quinto) as well as up-and-coming players like Zahra Tangorra (Brucie), Ann Redding (Uncle Boons), and Sawako Ockochi (Shalom Japan).

Culinary historian Anne Willan traces the origins of American cooking through profiles of twelve essential women cookbook writers--from Hannah Woolley in the mid-1600s to Fannie Farmer, Julia Child, and Alice Waters--highlighting their key historical contributions and most representative recipes.

Anne Willan, multi-award-winning culinary historian, cookbook writer, cooking teacher, and founder of La Varenne Cooking School in Paris, explores the lives and work of women cookbook authors whose important books have defined cooking over the past three hundred years. Beginning with the first published cookbook by Hannah Woolley in 1661, up to Alice Waters today, these women, and books, created the canon of the American table.

Focusing on the figures behind the recipes, Women in the Kitchen traces the development of American home cooking from the first, early colonial days to transformative cookbooks by Fannie Farmer, Irma Rombauer, Julia Child, Edna Lewis, and Marcella Hazan. Willan offers a short biography of each influential woman, including her background, and a description of the seminal books she authored. These women inspired one another, and in part owe their places in cooking history to those who came before them.

Featuring fifty original recipes, as well as updated versions Willan has tested and modernized for the contemporary kitchen, this engaging narrative seamlessly moves through history to help readers understand how female cookbook authors have shaped American cooking today.

Barrels--we rarely acknowledge their importance, but without them we would be missing out on some of the world's finest beverages--most notably whiskies and wines--and of course for over two thousand years they've been used to store, transport, and age an incredibly diverse array of provisions around the globe. In this comprehensive and wide-ranging book, Henry Work tells the intriguing story of the significant and ever-evolving role wooden barrels have played during the last two millennia, revealing how the history of the barrel parallels that of technology at large.

Exploring how barrels adapted to the requirements of the world's changing economy, Work journeys back to the barrel's initial development, describing how the Celtic tribes of Northern Europe first crafted them in the first millennia BCE. He shows how barrels became intrinsically linked to the use of wood and ships and grew into a vital and flexible component of the shipping industry, used to transport not only wine and beer, but also nails, explosives, and even Tabasco sauce. Going beyond the shipping of goods, Work discusses the many uses of this cylindrical container and its relations--including its smaller cousin, the keg--and examines the process of aging different types of alcohol. He also looks at how barrels have survived under threat from today's plastics, cardboards, and metals.

Offering a new way of thinking about one of the most enduring and successful products in history, Wood, Whiskey and Wine will be a must-read for everyone from technology buffs to beverage aficionados who wish to better understand that evasive depth of flavor.
