Taming the Truffle Book

 

In 2008, we were honored to host the international launch of Taming the Truffle: The History, Lore, and Science of the Ultimate Mushroom (January 2008, Timber Press), "the most comprehensive practical treatment of this gastronomic treasure to date" at the 2008 Oregon Truffle Festival. The Festival keynotes were presented by two of the book's authors, Dr. Ian Hall from New Zealand, the leading researcher behind the success of truffle cultivation outside of Europe, and Dr. Alessandra Zambonelli, one of Italy's foremost truffle researchers.

Families of the Vine

 

A few friends, a good meal, a glass of wine -- what could be a more simple pleasure? Why then does the subject of wine — and particularly writing about wine — often seem so darn complicated, needlessly technical or frustratingly pretentious? In this book I wanted to tell a different story about wine, to share my experience of two years spent among French winemakers and vineyards -- two years in which I discovered that the story of wine from vine to glass is as much the story of the people who make it, their history and traditions, their intimacy with the land, as it is a tale of yeast, grape, and barrel. Happily, it is also, in the small family vineyards where much French wine is made, a very warm, very human story. Hardback signed version.

In THE PALEY'S PLACE COOKBOOK, he adapts his food for the home cook, tempting the reader with a casually elegant Walla Walla Onion Tart with Fresh Goat Cheese and Summer Herb Pesto, a show-stopping Cedar Planked Salmon, an indelible Creme Brulée, and many others.
