 101 Essential Tips: Cooking With Spices
 This demure little book packs a world of spice know-how into it's 69 pages--with not a real life Spice Girl in sight! Profiling an aromatic array of spices: paprika, cinnamon, cumin, anise, and some which the tongue has a hard time even negotiating such as asafetida and fenugreek--Cooking with Spices is a flavorsome treat. Handy hints are given for the selection, drying, and storing of spices, as well as pointers for freezing and grinding. Full color photographs profile the varieties and conditions of a spice--ginger has four types: preserved, dried, fresh, and ground. This spice is recommended for curry powder, meat and fish dishes, and of course cookies! The book even manages to squeeze in 42 recipes that will heat up the kitchen! From the Far East we have Thai Shrimp Soup with Lemongrass, a succulent dish with a zesty balance of lemongrass, chilies, scallion, cilantro, and the shrimp. From the Middle East comes a terrific recipe for faithful Falafel--plan in advance for this one, as chickpeas must be soaked for 36 hours. It's worth the effort though; this is a thoroughly delicious dish, perfect for dipping at parties!

Order the "Smoke and Spice" book today from Amazon for only $17.95 + shipping!   Smoke & Spice: Cooking with Smoke, the Real Way to Barbecue, on Your Charcoal Grill, Water Smoker, or Wood-Burning Pit

Barbecue is not about grilling food fast over high heat. That's something else, delicious in its own right, but something else entirely. Barbecue is about marginal cuts of meat (for the most part), about smoke, about fires burning so low and slow you hardly ever see the flicker of a flame. Barbecue is about succulent pork ribs as dark as sin just falling off the bone and dripping with glorious sweet pork godliness. Or enjoying the effects that 12 to 18 hours of smoking has on beef brisket.

The trick is, how do you do it? How do you master a cooking technique all but ignored in favor of fast and hot? The answer lies in Smoke & Spice. Authors Jamison and Jamison provide all the information you're ever going to need to run a real barbecue. Tips and techniques abound on every page--accompanied with countless recipes that stretch the barbecue imagination. And seeing that one cannot live on barbecue alone (though that's a challenge well worth considering) there are just as many recipes included for all the good food that accompanies barbecue--from Scalloped Green Chile Potatoes to South-of-the-Border Garlic Soup to Buttermilk Onion Rings and even Bourbon Peaches. If smoke in your eyes makes your mouth water, this is the primer for you!
