Book signing for Alex Guarnaschelli’s latest release, The Home Cook: Recipes to Know by Heart
Stew Leonard’s East Meadow – 1897 Front Street, East Meadow, NY 11554
For Alex Guarnaschelli—whose mother edited the seminal 1997 edition of Joy of Cooking, which defined the food of the late twentieth century—a life in food and cookbooks was almost predestined. In her highly anticipated latest cookbook, The Home Cook: Recipes to Know by Heart (Clarkson Potter | September 26, 2017 | Hardcover), the mother, accomplished chef, and Food Network star has penned an all-in-one cooking bible for a new generation that encourages home cooks to make great food and share it with others.
Whether it’s a Monday-night supper or a weekend dinner party, The Home Cook provides an entire repertoire for every occasion and every flavor profile. The new generation of home cooks who were raised on vibrant, international flavors and supermarkets stocked with miso paste, harissa, and other bold condiments and ingredients will have a new go-to resource for everything from simple vinaigrettes and roast chicken to birthday cake and cocktails. Novices and seasoned home cooks alike will be encouraged to explore new grains, to seek out and enjoy under-the-radar cuts of meat, and learn how to tackle cooking fish at home.
Stew Leonard’s will offer Guarnaschelli’s latest cookbook for purchase for a special price of $24.99 during the event.
