San Juan Classics II Cookbook
by Dawn Ashbach, Janice Veal

Nestled in the sparkling waters of the Pacific Northwest lies one of world’s richest archipelagos — the San Juan Islands. The natural beauty of this region is well known to visitors and residents alike. The bounty of its gentle land and surrounding seas provide the natural ingredients for fresh, mouth watering flavors. San Juan Classics II celebrates the abundance of the area offering a unique blend of cuisines created by people who love good food.Authors Dawn Ashbach and Janice Veal, after 10 successful years with their first book, San Juan Classics, now present a second book featuring new cooking styles, new restaurants and chefs of the region. San Juan Classics II is an eclectic collection of more than 250 recipes ranging from quick and healthy to complex and decadent. In the spirit of the first book, it melds Northwest fare with classic ethnic dishes. Using recipes as varied as Dungeness Crab with Lemon Risotto to Grilled Steak with Peppercorn Sauce, the authors have combined the best of the old and new. Naturalist Peter Capen has painted a colorful word picture of the region in an introduction that captures the essence of the islands and photographs of island scenes provide a finishing touch. Given such a splendid setting, it seems natural that chefs and cooks be inspired by the bounty that San Juan Classics II provides.

Best of the Best from America Cookbook
by Gwen McKee, Barbara Moseley

Cocina Tropical
by Jose Santaella

Explore the tropical flavors and rich culinary traditions of America’s island paradise. Puerto Rico, a land of gorgeous beaches and luxurious resorts, also boasts a rich culinary culture with a mix of influences: Spanish, African, Taíno (Native American), and French. For adventurous mainland cooks in pursuit of exotic flavors, this book offers exciting new territory, and for Puerto Rican descendants everywhere, it pays tribute to the beloved homeland. Jose Santaella presents foods that only a local would know: the tradition of lechón—spit-roasted suckling pig—in the mountains near the rainforest, or dumplings of mashed plantains with land crab hand-rolled in ramshackle shacks along the shore. Among the book’s more than one hundred recipes are classics like Salt Cod Fritters with Piqué and Fried Whole Snapper with Pineapple and Cilantro Salsa, as well as contemporary creations, such as Avocado and Papaya Salad and Curried Goat with Lime and Orange Rice. Cocina Tropical captures the flavors and spirit of this truly enchanting island.

Pueblo Indian Cookbook
by Phyllis Hughes

“There are almost 50,000 copies of Phyllis Hughes’ definitive collection of Indian cookery in print. All the recipes are time-honored and kitchen tested and have been compiled with care by Mrs. Hughes from among her many friends in the New Mexico pueblos. Recipes have been modified to convert “a pinch of this” into accurate measurements for modern kitchens. A few esoteric recipes, such as Piki Bread, have been included for interest and experiment, along with many easily prepared standards like Fry Bread and San Juan Squash. It’s all here–virtually the entire repertoire of Pueblo cooking–from Chick Pea Soup to Pinon Nut Cake and dozens of dishes in between. It’s a testimony to this classic work that the Pueblo Indian Cookbook can be found on the shelves of many Pueblo kitchens!”–Back cover.
