SOUPOLOGYRegular price $30.00
Easy to follow, this book is a master class on how to use six "mother broths" to create more than sixty delicious, zero-waste soups that can be nutritious full meals or accompaniments to larger celebrations.
From making simple broths to crafting superlative, showstopping soups, Drew Smith showcases how soups are really the perfect way to cook for the twenty-first century. A well-made soup is a sublime culinary creation--simultaneously well balanced, delicious, nourishing, and deeply comforting. Not only are soups good for the body, but they are also good for the planet--cooking soup enables the home cook to reduce food waste to almost zero.
Smith demonstrates how to build different variations of soups from six basic "mother broths": vegetable, poultry, meat, fish, shellfish, and kombu. Within each, there are subtypes and variations that lead to different finished soups--for instance, broth made from roast chicken bones is better used for richer, heartier soups like cream of chicken and mushroom, while broth from poached chicken is perfect for a light Roman stracciatella or a classic consommé.
Ultimately, the key to making a beautiful soup is knowing how to match the base broth to other ingredients, but the beauty of soup is that almost any pairing of ingredients can yield satisfying results. With some imagination and creativity, each recipe can be tweaked or remastered with variations of ingredients to create an almost infinite number of soups.

HOW TO COOKRegular price $19.99
An empowering collection of 100 delicious, practical recipes that will teach young adults and kitchen novices all the skills they need to cook for themselves—from a James Beard Award-winning chef and author.
Acclaimed chef, TV star, and dedicated father Hugh Acheson taught his teenage daughters that cooking is an essential life skill. But he also knew that people don’t need to cook like a chef to feed themselves and their friends. Really, they only need to learn a handful of skills to enjoy a lifetime of cooking.
So, in How to Cook, Hugh distills the cooking lessons that everyone should master into twenty-five basic building blocks: easy-to-grasp recipes that can turn anyone, young or old, into a confident home cook. Each of these recipes teaches a fundamental skill, such as roasting or whisking together a classic vinaigrette, and each stands alone as a stellar back-pocket basic. After laying the groundwork, Hugh then offers recipes that expand on these foundations, whether it’s remixing the flavors of one of the basic recipes, or combining a couple of them, to show you how you can produce a lifetime’s worth of dishes.
This is the book Hugh is going to give his kids when they leave home, knowing that with these 100 recipes, they’ll be prepared to feed themselves for the rest of their lives.

Ella Leché, the voice behind the popular food blog Pure Ella, used to consider herself a healthful eater. She ate salads; she drank water. But like so many of us, she also looked forward to her daily sweet treats. It wasn’t until her health fell apart due to a rare illness that she began to make the food-health connection.
Back in 2008, just months after the birth of her first child, Ella developed debilitating weakness to the point where she collapsed numerous times. She had difficulty getting up from the bed and could barely breathe and eat. The diagnosis was myasthenia gravis, a neuromuscular autoimmune condition for which there is no medical cure. The medication she was put on wasn’t helping, and she decided to try and heal through food. She treated candida and eliminated many culprits such as processed foods, wheat, dairy, and, most important, sugar. Slowly she began to feel stronger and healthier. She found sugar was also triggering her frequent headaches, mood swings, and energy slumps. Now she is inspiring others to eat healthier and apply her approach to cut the sugar, not quit sugar entirely!
With emphasis on real, nutrient-dense whole foods—all presented deliciously and beautifully photographed by Ella herself and written in her encouraging, upbeat, grounded voice—Cut the Sugar is an inspirational and accessible guide to the sweet life . . . because you’re sweet enough already!
