Dishing : great dish--and dishes--from America's most beloved gossip columnist by Liz Smith( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a star-studded memoir, a reminiscence about great food and great meals, and a special kind of cookbook by Liz Smith, bestselling author and gossip columnist. Here, great dish and great dishes are artfully blended with anecdotes and spiced with Liz's sense of humor, instinct for a great story, and joie de vivre to produce a life-loving, sometimes bawdy, and always captivating read. Liz traces here her gradual education in haute cuisine, as well as her unashamed taste for down-home, stick-to-the-ribs cooking. She has watched Nicole Kidman devour a basket of bread before a full dinner at New York's Four Seasons and not gain an ounce. She has eaten al fresco off the hood of a car with Mike Nichols. She has been tempted by fattening cookies sent by Renée Zellweger. She has talked biscuits and gravy with Julia Roberts and eaten Elizabeth Taylor's trademark Jailhouse Chili and Chipped Beef à la Krupp Diamond. She revels in such dishes as Elvis Presley's favorite sandwich (peanut butter and banana) or Frito Pie (you'll love both these once you've tried them). From Kate Hepburn's brownies to pigs' feet, Liz not only names names but shares their most treasured recipes, as well as taking the reader on a gourmet tour of great meals

Welcome to Michael's : great food, great people, great party! by Michael McCarty( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michael McCarty has played a major role in defining a uniquely modern American attitude to cooking, dining, and entertaining since 1979, when he opened his first acclaimed Michael"s restaurant in Santa Monica, California. McCarty"s approach, now enjoyed on both coasts with the opening of Michael's New York in 1989, has always been refreshingly simple: start with the best ingredients, cook them in simple ways that highlight their natural qualities, pair them with great wines, and serve them in a relaxed yet stylish setting. The result, in Michael's own words, should be a "great party," which this book makes possible for any home cook. Adding to the lively spirit of Welcome to Michael's> are the voices of dozens of luminaries from the worlds of entertainment, the arts, the media, business, politics, and cooking who share their own insightful, sometimes irreverent opinions about the Michael's experience. The result is a book to be savored on many levels: as a guide to cooking for yourself, your family, and your friends and to entertaining with style; as a primer on the rewarding relationship between food and wine; and as an experience that comes as close as words and pictures possibly can to enjoying a meal at one of Michael's restaurants, surrounded by the luminous personalities who dine there
