Cooking with Kip: A Cook's Memoir

Cooking with Kip: A Cook's Memoir by Kip Meyerhoff

Kip Meyerhoff learned how to cook from his father, a New York City gangster who got his formal training in culinary arts while doing a stretch in prison.

His dad taught him the axioms of cooking: a little sugar can go a long way; bitterness can spoil your appetite for life; tarts are not always a just dessert; heat can reduce heat; and hot is not always hot.

Kip wanted to learn more, so his father turned him over to a succession of hotel chefs. Soon he was searing and broiling, baking and boiling, sautéing and flambéing, roasting and toasting.

He looks back at his incredible adventures cooking...

The Cake Club: Delicious Desserts and Stories from a Southern Childhood

The Cake Club: Delicious Desserts and Stories from a Southern Childhood by Susie QuickHardworking. Loyal. Outspoken. Ahead of their time. Hilarious. The "Fancy Frosters" of Charleston, West Virginia, were a close-knit and devoted circle - a merry band of Southern women who got together once a month to swap recipes and stories, to cook and bake together, to celebrate friendship and have some hearty laughs...and of course to eat.

Food editor and cookbook author Susie Quick's mother Emma was a member of this very special circle of sisters, aunts, cousins, and friends. Susie grew up to be a sophisticated "foodie," but she never forgot the great homemade desserts and ingenious creativity...

Rants and Recipes: A personal account of a lifetime running the Acorn Wholefood Caf

Rants and Recipes: A personal account of a lifetime running the Acorn Wholefood Caf by Chris BlandIn 1986 Chris Bland gave up the corporate life and opened a wholefood café. This is her story... "Are you still open?" could have been the title of this book - I would be a millionaire if I were paid each time I was asked this. Acorn Wholefood Café started in the hey-day of Cranks, and Sarah Brown - my heroine - was a lifeline. I learnt from her varied and interested recipes, then adapted them to create my own. The reasons for choosing wholefood as the key focus of the Acorn are clear: introducing the concepts and goodness of wholefoods was a passion I could not ignore. Acorn is in the building...

Food, Sex, Wine and Cigars: A Memoir

Food, Sex, Wine and Cigars: A Memoir by Lisa StalveySynopsis:

My memoir spans the first twelve years of my life as a professional chef. I was living in hell from September 1980 until 1993, facing many unforeseen challenges in every aspect of my life.

I planned on making this a cookbook twenty-two years ago. Then one day in 2011, it came to me that it needed to be a memoir, so I just sat down and wrote.

While writing this book, I found myself craving to feel hungry again, and with that came misery. The old habits of anorexia truly never leave. They linger around waiting for the chance to pounce again.

I think that both my parents being...
