A cookbook for people who love to cook
As host of Food Network’s hit show Chopped, Ted Allen
presides in pinstripes and sneakers while chefs scramble to
cook with mystery ingredients. But at home, Ted is the one
chopping the vegetables and working the stove, trying
unusual ingredients and new techniques, from roasting earthy
sunchokes in a piping-hot oven to develop their sweetness or
transforming leftover pinot noir into complexly flavored
homemade vinegar. In fact, it’s discoveries like these that
propel him into the kitchen nightly—that, of course, and
eating the delicious results with friends! Now Ted invites
likeminded cooks to roll up their sleeves, crank up the
stereo, and join him in the kitchen for some fun.
While there are mountains of cookbooks featuring
five-minute, three-ingredient, weeknight recipes for harried
households, here is a book for food lovers who want to lose
themselves in the delight of perfectly slow-roasting a leg
of lamb—Mexican style—or whipping up a showstopping
triple-layer cake. Ted is just such a cook and in his latest
cookbook he shakes up expectations by topping bruschetta
with tomatoes and strawberries; turning plums, sugar, and a
bay leaf into an irresistible quick jam; putting everything
you can think of on the grill—from ribs and pork shoulder to
chiles and green beans; and modernizing the traditional
holiday trio of turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce with
fresh ingredients and a little booze. And where there’s a
will to make something from scratch, Ted provides a way,
with recipes for homemade pickles, pizza, pasta, pork buns,
preserved lemons, breads, quick jam, marshmallows, and more.
With more than 100 amazing recipes and gorgeous color
photographs throughout, In My Kitchen is perfect for
passionate home cooks looking for inspiring new recipes and
techniques to add to their playbooks.
