Classic Beef Burgers

Classic Beef Burgers

Classic Beef Burgers, The Complete Summer Cookbook by America’s Test Kitchen.

A hot day and hanging over your stove were never meant to be. When fresh produce beckons but you haven’t much energy to respond, these recipes help you settle into a more relaxed kind of cooking designed to keep you and your kitchen cool.

Untether yourself from the oven with make-ahead meals best served cold (or at room temp), like Poached Salmon with Cucumber and Tomato Salad and Tzatziki. Fix-and-forget recipes like North Carolina-Style Pulled Pork made in the electric pressure cooker won’t steam up the kitchen.

Equally easy are dinner salads; we’ve got enough to keep them interesting and varied, from Shrimp and White Bean Salad with Garlic Toasts to Grilled Caesar Salad. Barely more effort is fresh summer recipes requiring the briefest stint in a pan, such as Beet and Carrot Noodle Salad with Chicken or Braised Striped Bass with Zucchini and Tomatoes.

Grilled Sausage Subs with Bell Peppers and Onions

Grilled Sausage Subs with Bell Peppers and Onions, Cook’s Country Big Flavors from Italian America.

Cook's Country Big Flavors from Italian America

Travel with Cook’s Country and savour the homey comforts of Little Italy, an array of neighbourhoods throughout the nation where Italian immigrants set down roots, and from those roots produced some of the best eating you’ll find anywhere. To fill our Italian-American table, we tested, tasted, and adapted our way through countless takes on beloved fare to discover what makes each a knockout, from meaty lasagna to eggplant Parmesan.

Along the way, we scoured the country to uncover less common (but no less delicious) dishes like Chicago’s Chicken Scarpariello and Brooklyn’s Prosciutto Bread, even coaxing some heirloom recipes from the families behind their landmark restaurants.

Italian-American cooking sparks fierce passions. Cooks may never agree on whether the best style of pizza comes from New York, Detroit, or St. Louis (you’ll find recipes for all three kinds in these pages). But we hope you’ll all find a place on your table for our drop meatballs, which stay tender without falling apart, our ricotta gnocchi (finally, a foolproof method), and a make-ahead tiramisu that rivals any restaurant’s.

Cold Sour Tomato Soup

Cold Sour Tomato Soup

Cold Sour Tomato Soup excerpted from Fire, Smoke, Green by Martin Nordin.

InFire Smoke Green by Martin Nordin Martin Nordin’s second book, he brings us a host of mouthwatering, modern vegetarian recipes, using the most elemental and ancient method of cooking: fire. Not just a barbecue cookbook, Fire, Smoke, Green is broken up into seven chapters that cover everything you need to know about making great food over the flame: from grilling directly onto fire, to cooking with indirect fire, smoked recipes, and even wood-fired pizza

Atmospheric photography and charming illustrations throughout bring you something other than your average vegetarian cookbook—as lovers of Martin’s first book Green Burgers will attest, his approach to meat-free cooking is anything but boring. Try the Roasted and smoked potatoes with beer-caramelized onions; the Fennel roots with shiitake, green onion, buckwheat and herb oil; or Harissa-marinated sweet potato with grilled cabbage leaves and black dukkah. Or if you still can’t get enough of the burger recipes, why not try the Zucchini and mungbean burgers with sriracha mayonnaise and furikake, washed down with a smoky Mezcal with grilled grapefruit.
