No Beard or Bowtie Required: Cocktails for the Craft-Curious

No Beard or Bowtie Required: Cocktails for the Craft-Curious

$34.95
More Info

No Beard or Bowtie Required - Cocktails for the Craft Curious chronicles the drinksmithing career of Tim Harnett, who began as a budding home mixologist that evolved into a well-recognized professional mixologist. Along the way, he discovered that a groomed beard and proper silk bowtie were helpful traits for the trade. But it also struck him that anyone can follow the same learning path without the sartorial wardrobe.


This book compacts a great deal of bartending acumen into a modest 140 pages. It covers the essential tools, skills and spirits you'll need to bartend properly at home. It also provides nearly 90 of Harnett's signature cocktail recipes with dazzling photography of each drink. The book begins with simpler drink builds and riffs on classics that marked the early days of his bar career. Reading forward, you'll discover more complex creations devoted to specific spirits, and cocktail genres such as tiki.


No Beard will help you hurdle some common missteps in home bartending, and also teach you some simple syrup and spirit infusion recipes that provide the building blocks of great cocktails. Admittedly, it also contains more curse words than your average cocktail book. But honestly, who doesn't swear?

Ratio : The Simple Codes Behind the Craft of Everyday Cooking

Ratio : The Simple Codes Behind the Craft of Everyday Cooking

$17.00
More Info
Michael Ruhlman's groundbreaking New York Times bestseller takes us to the very "truth" of cooking: it is not about recipes but rather about basic ratios and fundamental techniques that makes all food come together, simply.

When you know a culinary ratio, it's not like knowing a single recipe, it's instantly knowing a thousand.

Why spend time sorting through the millions of cookie recipes available in books, magazines, and on the Internet? Isn't it easier just to remember 1-2-3? That's the ratio of ingredients that always make a basic, delicious cookie dough: 1 part sugar, 2 parts fat, and 3 parts flour. From there, add anything you want--chocolate, lemon and orange zest, nuts, poppy seeds, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, almond extract, or peanut butter, to name a few favorite additions. Replace white sugar with brown for a darker, chewier cookie. Add baking powder and/or eggs for a lighter, airier texture.

Ratios are the starting point from which a thousand variations begin.

Ratios are the simple proportions of one ingredient to another. Biscuit dough is 3:1:2--or 3 parts flour, 1 part fat, and 2 parts liquid. This ratio is the beginning of many variations, and because the biscuit takes sweet and savory flavors with equal grace, you can top it with whipped cream and strawberries or sausage gravy. Vinaigrette is 3:1, or 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar, and is one of the most useful sauces imaginable, giving everything from grilled meats and fish to steamed vegetables or lettuces intense flavor.

Cooking with ratios will unchain you from recipes and set you free. With thirty-three ratios and suggestions for enticing variations, Ratio is the truth of cooking: basic preparations that teach us how the fundamental ingredients of the kitchen--water, flour, butter and oils, milk and cream, and eggs--work. Change the ratio and bread dough becomes pasta dough, cakes become muffins become popovers become crepes.

As the culinary world fills up with overly complicated recipes and never-ending ingredient lists, Michael Ruhlman blasts through the surplus of information and delivers this innovative, straightforward book that cuts to the core of cooking. Ratio provides one of the greatest kitchen lessons there is--and it makes the cooking easier and more satisfying than ever.

Ruhlman's How to Roast

Ruhlman's How to Roast

$25.00
More Info
In this first in a new series of books focusing on cooking methods, an award-winning cookbook author, food writer, and online culinary expert explores one of the most fundamental cooking techniques: roasting.

Humankind has been roasting for millennia. The term originally referred to cooking over an open fire, usually on some kind of spit, and has evolved to describe cooking of meat or vegetables or even fruit in an oven, a "dry heat" (and usually high-heat) method of making things irresistibly appetizing.

Michael Ruhlman has developed a reputation for providing lucid, no-nonsense cooking advice as sharp as a good chef's knife. "Of all our cooking terms," Ruhlman writes, "sautéed, grilled, poached, broiled -- I believe roasted is the most evocative adjective we can attach to our food, conjuring as it does ideas of deep rich flavors and delicious browning."

Ruhlman's How to Roast combines practical advice -- what tools you need, staple ingredients to have on hand, how to get the most out of your oven -- with 20 original and mouthwatering recipes, chosen to showcase a wide range of roasting methods and results, from "The Icon" (roast chicken), to Monkfish Roasted with Tomatoes and Basil, to Roasted Peaches with Mint Créme Fraiche. Dozens of color photographs offer step-by-step illustration as well as finished-dish showpieces.
