BOOK OF THE YEAR in The Observer and Spectator In the heart of London’s Soho is Ducksoup, a tiny neighbourhood restaurant where you can eat simple plates of exactly what you might want at any time of day. This book is packed with delicious favourites from the menu whose influences include the warm blue skies of Italy, spices and flower blossom of the Middle East, and the smoky earthiness of Scandinavia. These recipes have a common thread: simple details – a squeeze of burnt lemon, a toasting of nuts, or a spoonful of piquant green sauce – which elevate flash-in-the-pan plates and slowly-stirred pots alike into something special. This pared-back approach to food is simple and achievable, and will transform your everyday cooking.
Sometimes a book comes out of a restaurant kitchen that speaks with such simplicity, wisdom, and surprise, that it inspires home cooks to rethink their approach to cooking. Ducksoup is one of these rare books. More than 130 recipes feature seasonal produce, meats, fishes, and cheeses elevated by achievable means. Over 130 color photographs and a design that's as delightfully original as the recipes bring the ambiance of this unique London restaurant— a Soho gem—to life, providing fresh thinking for cooks in kitchens everywhere.

Experience beautiful home cooking that takes its cues from the kitchen gardens and forest harvests of the Pacific Northwest. Andrew Barton and his friends run Secret Restaurant Portland, a monthly supper club. After hosting dinners for five years, a culinary style emerged that reflected his practical approach to cooking: accessible recipes alive with flavor, lovely on the plate and the palate. The Myrtlewood Cookbook brings forth 100 recipes that amplify the tastes, colors, and textures of summer tomatoes, fall mushrooms, winter roots, and spring greens. You will gain nearly as much from reading these recipes as from cooking them. Whether you are inspired to make Nettle Dumplings in Sorrel Broth, Candied Tomato Puttanesca, or Russet/Rye Apple Pie, be prepared to swoon under the spell of Myrtlewood.* *The Myrtlewood tree is found on the same ground as fiddlehead ferns, nettles, and other wild foods characteristic of the Pacific Northwest. The plates, bowls and cutting boards carved from Myrtlewood shown in this book connect to the land where this cookbook was created.
The Soupbox restaurant soups have received outstanding Yelp reviews, were voted the Best Soup in Chicago on Citysearch, and have been featured in local and national press and television including the Chicago Sun Times and on Rachael Ray’s Tasty Travels show. The Soupbox Cookbook, authored by the chef and founders of the restaurant, features both creative and traditional soups, stews and chowders from customer favorites to great new recipes to try. All the soups are wholesome and nourishing for the whole family, and most of them take as little as 15 minutes prep time. Try the Rosemary Chicken Dumpling Soup for a new twist on a traditional favorite, or the Magnificent Mushroom and Barley Soup, light and healthy yet satisfying and packed with Vitamin B. Readers will also find Latin and Asian flavors, adapted to become new family favorites including the Spicy Mayan Chicken Enchilada Fiesta. The book, like the restaurant, features multiple vegan, gluten-free and low-sodium options, showing a commitment to the health needs of its broad range of customers…and now readers. The Soupbox first opened in 1995 and features 12 different soups a day with a rotating list of hundreds. A selection of customer favorites as well as new soups developed for this book—125 great soup recipes in total—have been created by founders and authors Jamie Taerbaum and Dru Melton, who have more than 35 years restaurant experience between them.
