Forecasting: March 2006

A few new culinary books on the horizon, though apparently March was a quiet sort of month.

Rudolph Chelminski's I'll Drink to That, exploring the history of the winemaking process in the Beaujolais region of France, which will be published by Gotham (Penguin Group). Chelminski also has published (in May of last year) a book titled The Perfectionist, Life and Death in Haute Cuisine, the story of Bernard Loiseau, the chef of France's La Cote D'Or, who committed suicide in 2003.

Viking Cooking School Executive Chef Martha Foose's Screen Doors and Linen Tablecloths, a Southern cookbook with classic recipes as well as riffs on deep South staples, to be published by Clarkson Potter (Random House).

Jean Georges Executive Pastry Chef Johnny Iuzzini and Roy Finamore's Dessert Fourplay, a dessert cookbook, to Clarkson Potter. I had possibly the best meal of my entire life at Jean Georges and if this chef was responsible for the dessert, this may well be a cookbook worth having. Roy Finamore is also one of the writers behind One Potato, Two Potato.

Julie Hasson's Julie Hasson: The Complete Pie Book, more than 250 pie recipes covering everything from apple pie to quiche lorraine, to Robert Rose (Firefly Books).

Hell's Kitchen contestant Elsie Ramos with Arlen Gargagliano's Elsie's Turkey Tacos and Chicken Soup, offering simple, comforting recipes for the whole family, to Wiley Publishers.
