Most importantly, he shows how beer, which is far more versatile than wine, intensifies flavors when it is appropriately paired with foods, to create dining experiences most people have never imagined.

Carolyn O'Neil and Denise Webb

Dish: How to Eat Healthy and Still be Fabulous!

Diet aptitude meets stylish attitude in this book for hip women who want to feel great, look sensational, and do it on their own terms. Carolyn O'Neil and Denise Webb may be registered dietitians, but don't call them nutritionists--they're "dish divas," come to put the joy back into eating right and feeling good. The Dish shows readers how to achieve three principle goals: to fit healthy eating into their hectic lives; to make healthy eating as stylish as they are; and to be healthy by eating more, not less (it can be done!).

Molly O'Neil

A Well-Seasoned Appetite

From innovative techniques such as oven drying summer produce or using vegetable broths to lighten dressings, to homey recipes for one-pot dinners and rustic tarts, A Well Seasoned Appetite illustrates Molly OšNeil's conviction that "cooking should nourish life at more than one cellular level." With humor and passion, she celebrates the fact that eating, like most intimate acts performed by human beings, has as much to do with the mind and spirit as with the body. The book is composed of smart , eloquent essays laced with more than 200 recipes which remind us that anticipation -whether for the morels from Michigan's National Mushroom Festival, or for a cherry held by the stem and nibbled with a "singularly selfish satisfaction"-lends food much of its savor.

The Sweet Spot by Pichet Ong on StarChefs.com

The Sweet Spot

Elements of Asian Cuisine are as popular with American diners as hamburgers, says Pichet Ong – but what of the desserts? His new cookbook opens the doors to a vast landscape of desserts with Asian flavors, ingredients and techniques. The key, which makes this cookbook one that will end up dog-eared and batter-splattered, is the recipes accessibility – flavors and components are different, but forms are familiar. There’s coconut cream pie, but with a crust of toasted jasmine rice; instead of panna cotta, there’s a delicate glass of almond tofu topped with a fresh salad of Asian pair, grapes, peaches, and mint.

Simone and Ines Ortega

1080 Recipes

1080 Recipes is the Spanish version of The Silver Spoon (published in English by Phaidon) – a tome of over 1000 classic recipes from across the country. It unsentimentally codifies what Penelope Casas, Coleman Andrews and Anya Von Bremzen have worked to bring to the West – that is, the variety and splendid simplicity of Spanish home cooking. Modern Spanish gastronomy (alta cocina) is relentlessly technique-driven; for the uninitiated, the basic character of the country’s historical cuisine may come as a surprise, and probably a delight.

Encyclopedia of Herbs, Spices, & Flavorings

Many cookbooks and kitchen references are described as indispensable to experienced chefs as well as culinary novices but this book is one of the few that truly fits the bill. As the title says, it is an encyclopedia and it offers detailed information and vivid pictures of over 200 herbs, spices, essences, edible flowers and leaves, aromatics, vinegars, oils, teas, and coffees. Each is described with tips for storage and cooking, food match-ups, and recipes as well as general background information. This is a book no kitchen should be without.
