25 Essentials: Techniques for Grilling
Mar 2009
The Harvard Common Press

Ardie A. Davis, the self-styled “doctor of barbecue philosophy” (or Ph. B.) offers up this valuable tool for any would-be griller intimidated by the variety of practices, equipment, and saucy accoutrements of grilling. Davis breaks down grilling techniques primarily according to the ingredients rather than the equipment, e.g. “Grilling Duck” (which requires indirect fire) versus “Herb Grilled Potatoes” (which require a grill basket). This makes the book easily navigable to the novice griller, though it is also an excellent resource for the seasoned griller, as it passes on a legacy of regional seasoning and preparations that have been culled over the lifetime of Dr. Davis.

Fried Chicken and Champagne: a Romp Through the Kitchen at Pomegranate Bistro
Aug 2010
Southern Accents, Inc.

Fried chicken and a glass of Champagne? Yes, please. Chef Lisa Dupar’s IACP award-winning cookbook explores both the hometown and haute elements of the cuisines Dupar holds most dear. A Georgia girl, who cooked across Europe and landed in the Pacific Northwest, Dupar grew up eating Southern Fried Chicken but quickly developed a taste for life’s more refined and worldly flavors. And she combines high- and low-brow foods with gusto in Fried Chicken and Champagne. Her recipe for “Frogmore Stew: Shrimp, Crab, Andouille Sausage, Sweet Corn in Shellfish Broth” combines elegant ingredients with a touch of rustic sloppiness. And Ginger Molasses Cookies have all the homey simplicity you could want from a cookie—but Dupar isn’t afraid to add black pepper for kick. If by some stretch of the imagination, you can’t find something you’re dying to try from Fried Chicken and Champagne, it’s quite possible you simply don’t like food.
