About I Am Almost Always Hungry: Seasonal Menus and Memorable Recipes

Publisher Web Link: http://www.abramsbooks.com/

From her early catering days and her time as proprietor of the charming West Village restaurant Lora to her current role as House & Garden’s food editor, Lora Zarubin has always been hungry: for experience, for travel, and for friends, but most of all for new recipes and new tastes. Here she invites readers to share in this lifelong love affair with food, and practice her straightforward approach: She uses the best ingredients possible, keeps her recipes simple, and makes cooking fun. I Am Almost Always Hungry is a cookbook that will make you want to get in the kitchen. Zarubin offers 30 seasonal menus and more than 100 recipes drawn from her childhood, her extensive travels throughout Europe and the United States, and her years as a caterer and restaurateur—which gave her unique insights into the subtleties of seasonal entertaining. Among Zarubin’s featured creations are Fennel and Parmigiano-Reggiano Salad, Short Ribs with Chocolate and Cinnamon, Creamy Grits with Pureed Celery Root, and Roasted Peaches with Cardamon Sugar and Mascarpone Sauce. Throughout, stunning images by pioneering food photographer Tessa Traeger reveal the beauty of these dishes. I Am Almost Always Hungry also features a foreword by novelist and Zarubin-fan Jay McInerney, who writes the wine column for House & Garden. (http://www.abramsbooks.com/)

About Lora Zarubin

Author Web Link: http://www.lorazarubin.com/

Lora Zarubin is currently Food & Wine editor for LA Times Magazine. Previously she was Food and Wine editor for House & Wine; Garden, a position she assumed at the magazine’s relaunch in 1996 and held until its close in November of 2007. She worked closely with Jay Mc Inerney on wine coverage, and initiated her signature column, “Larder,” a page of discoveries, passions, and prejudices about the best things in the world of food. In 1992, Zarubin opened her own restaurant, Lora, in Greenwich Village to rave reviews from Gourmet and the New York Times. The menus at Lora showcased Zarubin’s philosophy about food and cooking: serve the best seasonal ingredients, support local farmers, and preserve tradition. In the fall of 2003, Zarubin published I Am Almost Always Hungry (Stewart Tabori Chang), a book of culinary memories, seasonal menus, and recipes. The book won the 2004 IACP Julia Child prize for the best first cookbook published that year. (www.ahungrygirl.com)
