Twelve Recipes

By Cal Peternell

“Chef Peternell, chef at Chez Panisse, offers an informal crash course in the “big 12” recipes “at the heart of home cooking.” His inspiration comes from his family kitchen and the realization that his son, attempting to cook while away at college, hadn’t absorbed cooking know-how through osmosis. While Peternell assembles this collection of recipes, tips, and loving reflections as a gift to his son, he creates more than a handbook for beginning cooks. In this survey of cooking basics, Peternell inspires home cooks to “break some rules” and let intuition be their guide.”

The Grand Central Market Cookbook: Cuisine and Culture from Downtown Los Angeles

by Adele Yellin, Kevin West - $1.99



Thanks for this one, has been on my list for awhile.


Quick review: I’ve said forever, if I had a cafe, it would be called “Chai and Chaat”. So imagine my delight when I saw this book. However, I did not have success with the recipes . Also, I have a rule not to purchase cookbooks that are originally published for the U.K., but “converted” for the U.S. market. With very few exceptions, I’m always disappointed. I should have followed my own rule.


Thanks for the feedback, I was really thinking of getting the book, since my knowledge on Indian food is really limited. Which Indian cookbook would you recommend?


I just got this ebook, it is an enriched version with interactive features that helps to navigate, thus making the reading process more pleasant. Didn’t start cooking anything yet, but a few recipes look tempting.


You are welcome, in the end, I got it too. Been trying to get a few interesting mexican cookbook.


The ones I’ve used the most are by Julie Sahni and Madhur Jaffrey, but they are not easy for beginners. Kind of like with Thai cooking, you have to stock your pantry well and be all in. Pakistani (and “North Indian”) cooking usually uses less spices and ingredients than Indian, but I find YouTube videos better than any cookbook. Even though most are in Urdu, you can easily figure it out. Some are very English friendly. I have used many French videos even though I had no idea what they were saying.
