Fall Feast Books Giveaway - Hatchette Book Group

The first is How to Roast a Lamb By Michael Psilakis, Barbara Kafka ISBN: 9780316041218, $35.00/$43.00. This is a book about New Greek Classic Cooking.

Here's the description. "A rising star in the food world, Michael
Psilakis is co-owner of a growing empire of modern Mediterranean restaurants, and
one of the most exciting young chefs in America today. In How to Roast a Lamb, the self-taught chef offers recipes from his restaurants and his home in this, his much-anticipated first cookbook.

"Ten chapters provide colorful and heartfelt personal essays that lead into thematically related recipes. Gorgeous color photography accompanies many of the recipes throughout.

"Psilakis's cooking utilizes the fresh, naturally healthful ingredients of the Mediterranean augmented by techniques that define New American cuisine. Home cooks who have gravitated toward Italian cookbooks for the simple, user-friendly dishes, satisfying flavors, and comfortable, family-oriented meals, will welcome Psilakis's
approach to Greek food, which is similarly healthful, affordable, and satisfying
to share any night of the week."

The second book is Chocolate: A Love Story By Max Brenner, Yonatan Factor ISBN: 9780316056625 $29.99/$35.99. It's a book of 65 chocolate dessert recipes. Here's the description.

"With gigantic vats of churning chocolate, desserts like their famous chocolate pizza, and 12 varieties of hot chocolate served in custom mugs, Max Brenner, Chocolate by the Bald Man has turned their line of hip, colorful themed restaurants into an international sensation.. Chocolate: A Love Story is a vibrant new cookbook that includes 65 original recipes narrated in the quirky, captivating voice of Max Brenner, the restaurant's visionary founder and "bald man." Bold original illustrations inspired by Art Deco poster graphics, full-color photographs, easy-to-follow, delicious recipes, and a serving of Max's unique vision for spreading "chocolate culture" around the world make this book a must for every chocolate lover."
