Jack Stein s World on a Plate Book Description :

“In the past 20 years there have been huge movements in the way we British think about produce. As someone is involved in that conversation I have seen it change and now, more than ever, the produce that is available to the keen home cook has increased in variety and quality immensely. What this means is that the home cook is now faced with the fantastic situation of being able to source the produce needed to make great food all year round. It is important that this movement progresses, and that if we choose to source our meat, fish and other major ingredients from Britain, why not have fun with world food concepts?” In this beautiful new book, Jack Stein combines his culinary experience from working in restaurants around the world and his passion for British produce to create 100 dishes to enchant and entice home cooks. From dishes such as chilli crab (using the very finest Cornish crab) and Szechuan-style duck to monkfish satay and buttermilk fried chicken, the recipes featured are all easy to follow and simple to make, bringing the taste of exotic holidays to our own kitchen tables. Stunning photography complements these delightful recipes, ensuring this is a book you will cook from time and time again.

I want it all, when I am dining, and the main course is not necessarily the star of the meal. I'm the sort of person that orders three or four appetizers at a restaurant, in preference to a main course. So, when dining at home, preparing a meal for friends, or simply eating alone, I want lots of small plates, or bites of a variety of things. Beautifully, thoughtfully planned small plates can be prepared for an occasion, or we can simply rummage around the fridge or pantry for lots of leftovers, odds and ends, pickled things, smoked things, cheesy things, and create an eclectic spread of interesting and delicious plates to linger over, well into the night.

The Third Plate Book Description :

“Not since Michael Pollan has such a powerful storyteller emerged to reform American food.” —The Washington Post Today’s optimistic farm-to-table food culture has a dark secret: the local food movement has failed to change how we eat. It has also offered a false promise for the future of food. In his visionary New York Times–bestselling book, chef Dan Barber, recently showcased on Netflix’s Chef’s Table, offers a radical new way of thinking about food that will heal the land and taste good, too. Looking to the detrimental cooking of our past, and the misguided dining of our present, Barber points to a future “third plate”: a new form of American eating where good farming and good food intersect. Barber’s The Third Plate charts a bright path forward for eaters and chefs alike, daring everyone to imagine a future for our national cuisine that is as sustainable as it is delicious.

Personalities on the Plate Book Description :

Human attitudes towards other species are inevitably complex. We love the dog and eat the pig, or, we love the bison and eat the bison. Who exactly are these fellow creatures? The newest science from anthropology, psychology, and zoology can help us figure out some answers to that question by showing us how the animals we eat-- for some the octopus or the chimpanzee, for many others the chicken and the goatthink, feel, and act as distinct individual beings. Who are we eating? In this insightful exploration of the animals that humans consume, Barbara King does not tell us what or whom we should be eating, but rather she invites us to a smorgasbord of thought and reflection on the sentience and behaviors of the consumed. By getting to know these animals better, we can begin to taste the different ways they experience the world with awareness and intention, and it brings greater connection between us and those animals than we encounter in shrink-wrapped grocery-store products. This book shows us how valuable it is to understand who we eat, no matter how varied that consumption is. From octopi to crickets to chimpanzees, the animals we consume deserve a better appreciation from all who encounter them in a culinary experience, and there is no host of this scientific and behavioral feast than Barbara King.
