Gjelina Excerpt :

Travis Lett's new American cuisine from Los Angeles's most talked-about restaurant. Standout cookbook featuring 125+ rustic and delicious dishes: Gjelina in Venice Beach, California is lauded by critics from London to New York to San Francisco. It is beloved by stars, locals, and out-of-towners alike for its seductive simplicity and seasonal New American menu created by talented chef Travis Lett. • With 125 rustic and utterly delicious salads, toasts, pizzas, vegetable and grain dishes, pastas, fish and meat mains, and desserts that have had fans clamoring for a table at Gjelina since the restaurant burst onto the scene in 2008. • More than 150 color photographs from acclaimed photographer Michael Graydon and stylist Nikole Herriott. The tactile and artisanal packaging of this recipe book evoke the vibe of Venice Beach and the Gjelina (the G's silent) aesthetic, and showcase the beautiful plated food of chef Travis Lett's ingredient-based, vegetable-centric cooking. Much like cookbook best sellers from Yotam Ottolenghi's Jerusalem, Plenty, and Ottolenghi, Gjelina is the cookbook for the way we want to eat now. • Gorgeous cookbook will be a go-to for inspiring recipes as well as for simply admiring the photographed plated dishes. • Mouthwatering recipes include broccoli rabe pesto, grilled kale with shallot-yogurt dressing and toasted hazelnuts, mushroom toast, baby radishes with black olive and anchovy aioli, ricotta gnocchi with cherry tomato Pomodoro, farro with beet and mint yogurt, cioppino, steaks with smoky tomato butter and cipollini, strawberry-rhubarb polenta crisp, and more.

Passion for Pizza Excerpt :

“The authors showcase their passion for pizza in this intimate, behind the scenes tale about great artisanal pizza makers in Italy and America.” —Jonathan Goldsmith, owner, Spacca Napoli Passion for Pizza celebrates the people, personalities, and stories behind one of the world’s favorite foods. Not only a cookbook and a history book, it is also a tribute to the people and places that makes this dish a global favorite. It is a beautifully illustrated volume by a team of award-winning authors, photographers, and designers who diligently followed the smell of great pizza to wherever it led them. Passion for Pizza begins in Italy, introducing readers to pizzaioli in places such as Naples, Rome, and Palermo. Next up is the pizza of New York, Chicago, and California, where it’s as essential as baseball and mom’s apple pie. The authors visit the people who produce the cheeses, tomatoes, flour, and other ingredients used in pizza making, showing the global reach of locally sourced foods. This exuberant tour guide digs deep into pizza culture with interviews of oven-makers, consultants, professors, acrobats, and journalists. With more than fifty easy-to-follow recipes for individual pizzas and crusts, over forty pizzeria profiles, and twenty profiles of the people behind the pizza, this book inspires home cooks and aficionados alike. “Passion for Pizza reaches deep into the heart and soul of pizza makers from around the world. One of the finest, most groundbreaking books ever written about pizza and its industry.” —Tony Gemignani, author of The Pizza Bible “Can there be too much pizza? Or books about it? No and no. New on the pizza front is the gorgeously photographed Passion for Pizza.” —The Sacramento Bee
