Innovative chicken recipes paired with exquisite photos in the style of the author’s stunning blog, Adventures in Cooking.
Chicken is the most popular meat in the world and can be easily adapted to almost any cuisine, from rustic Italian dishes to Asian-inspired curries. Add to that its affordability, and you begin to understand why the average American consumes sixty pounds of chicken a year. Still, it can be challenging to think of new ways to cook the same old wings or chicken thighs. Then along comes Eva Kosmas Flores, creator of the acclaimed blog Adventures in Cooking. Her photography style is unparalleled; even more impressive are her 150 recipes.
This is a book for avid home cooks who want to push their cooking to the next level with the best versions of classics like Chicken Marsala with Balsamic Caramelized Onions and Pork Belly or innovative temptations such as Korean Barbecue Drumsticks with Ginger-Pear Sauce. There are sections on chicken cooking techniques, how to make perfect stock, and more, making this the only book chicken lovers will ever need.
The Adventures of Fat Rice: Recipes from the Chicago Restaurant Inspired [EPUB]

With 100 recipes, this is the first book to explore the vibrant food culture of Macau—an east-meets-west melting pot of Chinese, Portuguese, Malaysian, and Indian foodways—as seen through the lens of the cult favorite Chicago restaurant, Fat Rice.
An hour’s ferry ride from Hong Kong, on the banks of the Pearl River in China, lies Macau—a modern, cosmopolitan city with an unexpected history. For centuries, Macau was one of the world’s greatest trading ports: a Portuguese outpost and crossroads along the spice route, where travelers from Europe, Southeast Asia, South Asia, and mainland China traded resources, culture, and food. The Adventures of Fat Rice is the story of how two Chicago chefs discovered and fell in love with this fascinating and, at least until now, unheralded cuisine. With dishes like Minchi (a classic Macanese meat hash), Po Kok Gai (a Portuguese-influenced chicken curry with chouriço and olives), and Arroz Gordo (if paella and fried rice had a baby), now you, too, can bring the eclectic and wonderfully unique—yet enticingly familiar—flavors of Macau into your own kitchen.
