Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The latest volume in this annual series, with a foreword from enfant terrible culinaire Bourdain (Kitchen Confidential; A Cook's Tour) that concludes "Cook free or die," strives to be of-the-moment, but sometimes feels generic. The recipes collected from books, magazines, newspapers, and the Internet are perfectly serviceable and occasionally truly innovative (Grape Salsa from the San Francisco Chronicle). Each recipe appears with a source, a cook and a header from the editors, as well as helpful cook's notes derived from the testing of approximately 700 recipes during the process of compiling the book. For example, a recipe for Laksa (Malaysian Noodle Soup) from a handout at Ramekins, a California cooking school, has a header that offers an aromatic description of the finished product, as well as notes on variations, a recommendation for buying laksa paste and suggestions for leftovers. Certain recipes are notable for their techniques: Chickpea Salad with Four-minute Eggs from Food & Wine includes a reliable method for soft-cooking an egg so that it coats a salad like a dressing. McCullough (Low-Carb Cookbook) and Stevens (One Potato, Two Potato) produce a list of top-10 trends, and while some observations may seem stale (the return of butter, the popularity of grilling and the national obsession with chocolate) others (bread as an ingredient rather than on its own, "eggs over everything," and cabbage) do surprise. (Oct.) Forecast: This entry in the annual series falls in line with earlier offerings, meaning it will appeal to those who appreciate kitchen quirkiness. Anthony Bourdain's name on the cover may attract additional sales. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

Party Cheese Crackers

Source: Cook & Tell by Karyl Bannister Cook: Karyl Bannister

You can’t stop eating these crackers, we promise. They’re cheesy, buttery, and delicious, with little bits of pistachio making them very pretty as well. Blue cheese and chili powder are used judiciously to elevate the flavors and add depth. They’re also a cinch to make, fortunately, since once you make them everyone will be begging you to bring them to the next party. They’re icebox crackers, made just like icebox cookies.
If there are any leftovers after the party, they go very well with soup or salad.

makes 6 1/2 dozen crackers

1 1/2 cups grated Cheddar cheese (about 6 ounces), at room temperature 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, at room temperature 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese (about 2 ounces), at room temperature 1 teaspoon chili powder 1/2 cup chopped salted pistachios 2 cups all-purpose flour

In a medium bowl using a wooden spoon, cream the Cheddar, butter, blue cheese, and chili powder. Stir in the pistachios. Sift the flour into the cheese mixture and work it in with the spoon until well blended. Form the dough into three 9-inch-long logs. Wrap the logs in waxed paper or plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours, or until firm.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Slice the logs into 3/8-inch-thick rounds. Place the rounds 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 10 to 14 minutes, or until barely browned on the edges. Serve warm or at room temperature. Store the crackers in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

Cook’s Notes
• If you can only find shell-on salted pistachios, discard any loose bits of papery skin as you shell the nuts.
* You can use a pinch of cayenne pepper in place of the chili powder for similar effect.
* If the ingredients are not truly at room temperature, blending the dough is a real chore. Once the cheeses and butter have softened, however, it’s a breeze.

Tip We all know that it’s not easy to shape dough into perfectly cylindrical logs, so we were happy to find this tip for shaping perfect icebox cookies on foodweb.com. Use scissors to cut down the length of a cardboard tube (such as a paper-towel tube). Line the inside of the tube with waxed paper. Pack the dough into the tube, close it, wrap a rubber band around each end, and refrigerate. After the dough is chilled, unwrap and you’re all set to slice and bake.
