Canvas and Cuisine: The Art of the Fresh Market by Jorj Morgan and Susan Fazio
Part coffee table book, part travel log, this visually delicious, delectably readable cookbook pays tribute to what may be the world’s most important treasure: fresh, locally grown food.
Canvas and Cuisine: The Art of the Fresh Market is a passport, inviting you to visualize the Italian seaside town of Positano where merchants offer baskets of produce featuring locally grown vegetables. The burst of color and depth of texture shows a zest for life. Home cooks feel the same way as the painter, plating meals for the people they love. The foodie consumes, the artist memorializes; and in this book, they come together as one hungry entity looking to be sated.

Sunday Best Dishes: A Cookbook for Passionate Cooks
Sunday is the day we relax, worship, cheer on our team, picnic, and generally share time together. Cooking is an excellent way to unwind; a passionate hobby with results that are deliciously shared with friends and family. Combining the two thoughts, Sundays are the best day to have fun in the kitchen. Whether you’re perfecting your potluck dish to share with friends, picking up a family picnic for a group hike, besting your burger for your pre-game tailgate party, or working on a new skill yielding gourmet results, it’s not all about food it s about how you invent it and who you share it with. What better day to begin than Sunday!
Fresh Traditions: Classic Dishes for a Contemporary Lifestyle
Fresh Traditions: Classic Dishes for a Contemporary Lifestyle is a cookbook that blends the traditions of the past with the fast-paced schedules of today’s families. Thorough, well-written, and simple-to-follow, it contains recipes for classical dishes in tandem with their contemporary counterparts. The classic recipe contains anecdotal information about the roots of the dish. Traditional preparation is explained, yet modern cooking techniques are applied. The updated recipe is mindful of new ingredients, healthy choices, and quick food preparation, while maintaining its roots within the classic dish.
Recipes are paired — classic with contemporary — allowing readers to decide which option to prepare — traditional or updated. Some days you must have Oven Fried Buttermilk Chicken; on others Southwestern Chicken Finger Salad will do just fine. Fresh Traditions offers more than 300 well-tested recipes, which are heavily supplemented with relevant information about the ingredients. Thus the recipes are generously peppered with sidebars offering cooking variations, nutritional tips, and relevant expert advice, allowing the art of cooking to be less stressful, more pleasurable, and a respite from the stress or time.
Thus, Fresh Traditions is a timely cookbook written for the foodie who wants more out of life through boundless food experiences. It is a book that celebrates a lifestyle of excellent meals balanced with a good dose of dietary common sense and filled with solutions for today’s cook.
