Ultimate Sandwich

Ultimate Sandwich

Author: Jonas Cramby Format: eBook Release Date: 11/06/2015

When John Montagu, the fourth Duke of Sandwich, got the brilliant idea of putting slices of cold meat between two pieces of bread, he not only invented the first, really modern meal - he created a global obsession. Today there are variations of the portable, cheap (but, above all, good) sandwich in most cultures and it is about time a book appeared that takes the subject seriously.In more than 90 recipes, you learn such skills as how to make perfect versions of classics such as the Club Sandwich, Reuben and BLT, and you get to know a bit more about exotic sandwiches such as Mufflettas, Tortas, Po'boys and Banh mis. The Ultimate Sandwich describes sandwich history, sandwich philosophy, how to bake the perfect bread, make your own cheese and cured and cooked meats, as well as the accessories and kitchen equipment every sandwich lover ought to have at home.This is quite simply a cookbook that at last affords the modest sandwich all the respect it deserves. The secret behind a happy life is, after all, as musician Warren Zevon said on his deathbed, to 'appreciate every single sandwich'.

Texas BBQ Meat, smoke & love

Texas BBQ Meat, smoke & love

Author: Jonas Cramby Format: Hardback Release Date: 05/06/2014

There is only one state in the US which lives up to the epithet 'the best BBQ in the world', and that is Texas. But what is BBQ? Traditional grilling means cooking a piece of meat as quickly as possible with a high heat, but BBQ is exactly the opposite - this is slow cooking at low temperatures. The meat doesn't dry up, but remains super juicy and slow cooking renders even cheap and chewy cuts tender and tasty. When the heat source is charcoal, wood shavings or wood, you automatically get an unbeatable spice in the form of perfumed smoke. In Texas BBQ you will get to learn all these techniques. It is a simple step-by-step guide to how to make the perfect Texas-style BBQ at home, whether you have an ordinary outdoor grill or a professional smoker. Learn about what sort of wood is suited to a particular meat, exact grilling times and smoking temperatures. But first and foremost, you will discover how to achieve a perfect, tender, juicy and smoked 'pulled pork' or 'brisket'. There are even recipes for side dishes - everything from grilled corn salad, via three varieties of Mac'n'cheese to a cheesy chile con queso. Fabulous mouthwatering photos and a fun step-by-step design will have you rushing to the grill as soon as you can.

Tex-Mex From Scratch

Tex-Mex From Scratch

Author: Jonas Cramby Format: Hardback Release Date: 06/03/2014

The tastes of Tex-Mex cooking are well-known and much loved - despite that, most people don't know how simple and tasty it is to prepare the food yourself, from scratch. In the USA, this sort of properly made Mex food is rapidly gaining in popularity: several of the trendiest young restaurateurs have left their restaurants to start mobile food places in so-called Taco trucks. It is from the US border states, rather than directly from Mexico, that we get our inspiration for this book. Such as from Texas - with its robust Tex-Mex food inspired by both their southern neighbor and by cowboy culture with its beans, cheesy enchiladas and smoky BBQ. Or New Mexico - with its smoky, luxurious and more authentic Mexican cuisine, and California - with its well-prepared Mex food, so-called fresh Mex. Often made with fish and shellfish, and always without using any semi-manufactured products, of course. Beautiful images of settings are followed by simple recipes, entertaining Tex-Mex stories and extremely nerdy tips like where on the hamburger one really should put the accessories, or why it ought to be forbidden to mix your guacamole. This book is planned with an introductory chapter where the reader can learn the basics of Tex-Mex cooking: how to make your own tortillas, deep fry your own nacho chips, knock together the perfect guacamole, make the hottest chilli sauce, make your own BBQ smoker and so on. Then there are separate chapters on: side dishes; tacos, enchiladas and burritos; salads and soups; BBQ; sandwiches and hamburgers; desserts; drinks.
