Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this stylish cookbook, Cool (who owns California cafes and has authored several cookbooks, including one dedicated to the tomato) proves that with fresh ingredients and an active imagination, the most mundane of breakfast sides can be transformed into delicious appetizers, entrees and desserts. Bread's popularity may be declining during the current reign of Atkins, but for those who still love their carbohydrates, Cool offers sumptuous (and beautifully photographed) recipes. These range from the traditional (Toast with Lox and Caper-Dill Cream Cheese), to the fanciful (Nasturtium-Goat Cheese Toast with Raspberry-Beet Salad), to the gentle (Grandma's Healing Toast, a sort of bread soup, "serves 1 sick child of any age"). Cool omits the recipes for bread itself, choosing instead to focus on what goes with it; she does, though, offer suggestions for what varieties might work with what dishes (e.g., try challah with the elegant Egg and Fennel Salad on Toast with Caviar). Generally simple and all-around pleasing, these recipes take an old standby to new heights. (Feb.) COINED BY GOD: Words and Phrases That First Appear in the English Translations of the Bible Stanley Malless and Jeffrey McQuain. Norton, $23.95 (256p) ISBN 0393020452 From its first vernacular translations, the Bible has been a record of the development of the English language. Such indispensable words as fisherman, cucumber, liberty, puberty, crime and conscience all made their entry into the written language in its pages, while deathless feats of biblical phrasemaking like "apple of his eye" and "no man can serve two masters" still pepper speeches everywhere. Word lovers and Bible scholars alike will delight in this compendium of the Bible's bequests to the English language. Malless and McQuain, authors of Coined by Shakespeare, include 150 detailed, sprightly entries, organized alphabetically, that provide etymologies of words and phrases, a record of their appearances and variations in Bible versions from the first English translation by William Wycliffe in 1382 to the King James Version, as well as classic and contemporary examples of their usage in secular contexts.
