A Comprehensive Guide to Making and Eating Delicious Food Wherever You Are

Ed Levine

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Ed Levine and the editors of food blog SeriousEats.com bring you the first Serious Eats book, a celebration of America’s favorite foods, from pizza to barbecue, tacos to sliders, doughnuts to egg sandwiches, and much more. Serious Eats crackles with the energy and conviction that has made the website the passionate, discerning authority on all things delicious since its inception in 2006.

Are you a Serious Eater?

1. Do you plan your day around what you might eat?
2. When you are heading somewhere, anywhere, will you go out of your way to eat something delicious?
3. When you daydream, do you often find yourself thinking about food?
4. Do you live to eat, rather than eat to live?
5. Have you strained relationships with friends or family by dictating the food itinerary—changing everyone’s plans to try a potentially special burger or piece of pie?

Ed Levine, whom Ruth Reichl calls the “missionary of the delicious,” and his SeriousEats.com editors present their unique take on iconic foods made and served around the country. From house-cured, hand-cut corned beef sandwiches at Jake’s in Milwaukee to fried-to-order doughnuts at Shipley’s Do-Nuts in Houston; from fresh clam pizza at Zuppardi’s Pizzeria in West Haven, Connecticut, to Green Eggs and Ham at Huckleberry Bakery and Café in Los Angeles, Serious Eats is a veritable map of some of the best food they have eaten nationwide.
           
Covering fast food, family-run restaurants, food trucks, and four-star dining establishments, all with zero snobbery, there is plenty here for every food lover, from coast to coast and everywhere in between. Featuring 400 of the Serious Eats team’s greatest food finds and 50 all-new recipes, this is your must-read manual for the pursuit of a tasty life.
           
You’ll learn not only where to go for the best grub, but also how to make the food you crave right in your own kitchen, with original recipes including Neapolitan Pizza (and dough), the Ultimate Sliders (which were invented in Kansas), Caramel Sticky Buns, Southern Fried Chicken, the classic Reuben, and Triple-Chocolate Adult Brownies. You’ll also hone your Serious Eater skills with tips that include signs of deliciousness, regional style guides (think pizza or barbecue), and Ed’s hypotheses—ranging from the Cuban sandwich theory to the Pizza Cognition Theory—on what makes a perfect bite.

Publishers Weekly Review

Oct 17, 2011 – Distilling the essence of the world’s largest online community of food enthusiasts into a readable book is not easy, but this entertaining, handy debut from the creators of seriouseats.com manages to do just that. Part cookbook, part travel guide, this cookbook covers the best in American grub. Sections are divided by category—breakfast, burgers, sandwiches, barbecue, street food, fried foods, sweets, and pizza—all of which skew to the down-home tastes of the site’s writers. “Serious eaters,” the book posits, are food-obsessed but democratic in their tastes. Each chapter analyzes the standards on which to judge a particular food—crust, sauce, and toppings for the aforementioned pizza, for instance. Regional styles are compared (New York, say, versus Neapolitan). The country’s top purveyors are listed with passionate description. And of course there are recipes to make everything from chilaquiles verdes to Korean-style fried chicken at home. The topics are well researched, and the vivid descriptions of dishes like the burnt ends at Kansas City favorite L.C.’s Barb-B-Q or Thai coconut milk gelato at Capogiro in Philadelphia will have some readers making travel plans. Lively writing and appealing photos make this a great choice for the junk food aficionado and the highly opinionated cook alike.

Format Issues

I love Serious Eats, and I like this book. The content is perfectHowever, it suffers from flaws in formatting for iBooks. I do not need ebooks to look like two side by side pages. A single page at a time is sufficient. This format complicates the page turning and disrupts the flow of reading. Also, being able to adjust the font would be a useful feature.
