From the foodstuffs syndicate of Serious Eats comes their new book: Serious Eats: A Comprehensive Guide to Making and Eating Delicious Food Wherever You Are ($18). Ed Levine and the editors have brought the same refreshingly approachable, high-energy style that have Serious Eats a must-bookmark site, to the epic 368 page book celebrating the best in American comestibles. From four star dining to food trucks, you can dive into 400 of Serious Eats’ greatest food finds, culinary adventures, insightful food introspectives (the one on sandwich construction is especially awesome), drool-inducing photography, tons of new content, and 50 original recipes by the ever-upholder-of-food-discipline, J. Kenji Lopez-Alt. Barbecue, sandwiches, fried chicken, ice cream, pizza, pies, and brownies, the book leaves no edible-Americana stone unturned. What you will find missing though is any sense of pretense that plagues tasty dining and that’s certainly something we’ll hoist a drink to. Here’s a hearty congratulations to Ed, Kenji and our friends at Serious Eats.
