Amster-Burton and his wife were already foodies (and very big fans of cheese) when Iris joined their family. Upon learning of her impending arrival he describes his first thought as “Are we going to have to eat fifties rejects like sloppy joes for the next eighteen years? Or feed our kid food we’d never eat ourselves?” He read books on feeding babies and toddlers and wasn’t terribly impressed with much of the information he found, so he eventually decided to write his own and Hungry Monkey was born. He states at the end of the introduction that this effort is “the book I wish someone had handed me before Iris was born so that I would have known that breastfeeding is challenging (even for dads), that there are two simple rules to take a lot of the stress out of feeding kids, and that it’s okay to feed a baby sushi and spicy enchiladas. Most important, I would have been reassured that having kids doesn’t require dumbing down your own menu: if you love to eat, a new baby presents an opportunity to have more fun with food than ever before in your life. And yes, more frustration.”
Molly Steven’s book, All About Braising is subtitled “The Art of Uncomplicated Cooking.” It’s an apt title to a well written book on exactly that–easy one-pot meals influenced by flavors from around the world as well as classics such as coq au vin and pot roast. I was thrilled to get a hold of this book to review after having heard about it from many different sources and after having a few weeks to work through it I have to say that it was more than worth the wait. These recipes are a solid group that will allow you to explore all sorts of new ways to cook everyday foods.
