Cookbooks, Old & New

“No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers”

Unplugged Kitchen: The Simple, Authentic Joys of Cooking, by Viana La Place (1996)

Unplugged Kitchen, by Viana LA Place

Pull the plug on fancy techniques and fall in love with food again with this beautifully illustrated new book by the co-author of Cucina Fresca and Pasta Fresca. Viana’s food is nothing less than inspired. In nearly 200 tastefully evocative recipes she cooks the foods she loves from the fresh flavors of the world’s cuisines.

Condition: Good. Cover and pages show some wear from reading and storage.

Our Price: $12.00 USD Hardcover with Dust Jacket

“Don’t be afraid to offer simple food to your guests. Elaborate pictures of fancy foods should remain on magazine pages, Simple food always elicits the strongest emotions – of thanks, of pleasure.”
