Crosshatching is a drawing technique that emerged in Medieval Europe and was perfected by Old Masters such as Dürer and Rembrandt. It later fell out of favor and into obscurity with the advent of the offset printing press. Recently, ink drawing has enjoyed a huge resurgence in popularity, and the art community on Instagram has embraced crosshatching anew. With its impressive historical roots and realistic results, it is seen as the sophisticated, fine-art alternative to more stylized techniques in graphic novels and commercial illustrations. This practical book takes readers from the very basics of crosshatching through to drawing concepts such as light, shape and shadow. For each topic -- still life, portraiture, figure drawing and landscapes -- August Lamm uses a combination of fine-art examples, illustrations and step-by-step tutorials to take the reader through the fascinating and accessible process of crosshatching, from perception to execution. This is a comprehensive guide, suitable for beginners and artists of every level.

This full-color, hardcover edition features a brand-new design with a foreword by J. Kenji López-Alt, 8,000 substitutions, custom hand-drawn illustrations by Emily Isabella, and 24 new recipes, increasing the total to 188 recipes. Have you ever been in the middle of making a meal only to discover you have run out of a key ingredient or don't own a specialty pan called for in the recipe? Or maybe, you want to create a different flavor or texture for a tried-and-true family dish by experimenting with something new and exciting. The answer to these dilemmas? Substitute. But the internet doesn't always have reliable answers or accurate replacements. Winner of an International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) award, The Food Substitutions Bible, now in an expanded, updated and revised third edition, is the authoritative guide to making substitutions in the kitchen. In one comprehensive, easy-to-use book that's organized from A to Z, bestselling author David Joachim has compiled creative and clear options to solve cooking conundrums. Now the book offers more than 8,000 alternative ingredients, equipment and techniques plus 188 simple recipes, covering emergency substitutions, time-saving substitutions, healthy substitutions, alternatives for hard-to-find ingredients, vegan and kosher alternatives, and ideas for varying the flavor of a dish in countless ways. You'll also find over 30 ingredients charts and measurements tables to help decipher things like selecting fresh chiles according to their Scoville Heat Unit, making flour substitutions based on taste or gluten/protein content, and choosing pan size equivalents. Don't have mirin? Use a mixture of sherry and sugar instead. Looking for a less-rich alternative to whipped cream? Evaporated milk whips up surprisingly well and makes a creamy, lower-calorie substitute you can dollop onto your favorite desserts. Can't find your fondue pot? Use a heavy stoneware dish set on a warming tray or heating pad. David gives you all the information you need to improvise with confidence at home or in a commercial kitchen. This classic reference book is a must-have for every kitchen and a wonderful gift for every occasion.

An empowering collection of delicious, practical recipes that will teach young adults and kitchen novices all the skills they need to cook for themselves--from a James Beard Award-winning chef and author. Acclaimed chef, TV star, and dedicated father Hugh Acheson taught his teenage daughters that cooking is an essential life skill. But he also knew that people don't need to cook like a chef to feed themselves and their friends. Really, they only need to learn a handful of skills to enjoy a lifetime of cooking. So, in How to Cook, Hugh distills the cooking lessons that everyone should master into twenty-five basic building blocks: easy-to-grasp recipes that can turn anyone, young or old, into a confident home cook. Each of these recipes teaches a fundamental skill, such as roasting or whisking together a classic vinaigrette, and each stands alone as a stellar back-pocket basic. After laying the groundwork, Hugh then offers recipes that expand on these foundations, whether it's remixing the flavors of one of the basic recipes, or combining a couple of them, to show you how you can produce a lifetime's worth of dishes. This is the book Hugh is going to give his kids as they head off to college, knowing that they'll be prepared to feed themselves for the rest of their lives.

More than 75 fresh, flavorful, seasonal recipes from award-winning chef and the 2016 Chopped Teen Grand Champion, Eliana de Las Casas. With her newest book, Chef Eliana inspires kids, teens, and families to embrace seasonal cooking and to use fresh, local ingredients when possible.

Arranged by season (spring, summer, fall, and winter) each section of the book will have 20 recipes showcasing the best ingredients of that season. Recipes are divided by ingredient, so with arugula available in the spring you can make an easy skillet lasagna.

Eliana's mission is to inspire families to cook creatively for themselves and to gain skill and experience in the kitchen so that they live healthier lives.
