    ISBN: 9780691160368
    Publication date: 01/11/2013

    When Cooking for Crowds was first published in 1974, home cooks in America were just waking up to the great foods the rest of the world was eating, from pesto and curries to Ukrainian pork and baklava. Now Merry White's indispensable classic is back in print for a new generation of readers to savor, and her international recipes are as crowd-pleasing as ever - whether you are hosting a large party numbering in the dozens, or a more intimate gathering of family and friends. In this delightful cookbook, White shares all the ingenious tricks she learned as a young Harvard graduate student earning her way through school as a caterer to European scholars, heads of state, and cosmopolitans like Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. With the help of her friend Julia Child, the cook just down the block in Cambridge, White surmounted unforeseen obstacles and epic-sized crises in the kitchen, along the way developing the surefire strategies described here. All of these recipes can be prepared in your kitchen using ordinary pots, pans, and utensils. For each tantalizing recipe, White gives portions for serving groups of six, twelve, twenty, and fifty. Featuring a lively new introduction by White and Edward Koren's charming illustrations, Cooking for Crowds offers simple, step-by-step instructions for easy cooking and entertaining on a grand scale - from hors d'oeuvres to desserts.

  • Cooking Sous Vide
    Cooking Sous Vide
    ISBN: 9781465453495
    Publication date: 01/01/2017

    Sous Vide (which is French for "under vacuum") is the process of cooking foods, like meats and vegetables, in sealed bags submerged in a water bath that is maintained at a constant temperature. The result is food that is cooked nearly perfectly because of precise temperature control that virtually eliminates the possibility of over-or under-cooking food. The slow, controlled method of sous vide results in meats and vegetables that have a much more delicate texture than if being cooked at high temperatures.

    Cooking Sous Vide covers the basics of how sous vide works, buying the right equipment, how to season sous vide foods, and how to cook sous vide safely, while achieving optimum results. Over 70 recipes, with beautiful color photography, are featured throughout.
