The Joy of Pizza

The Joy of Pizza

Learn to make artisan pizza the American way in this ultimate guide to the perfect pie from the creator of "the best pizza in New York" (New York Times).

Pizza is simple: dough, sauce, cheese, toppings. But inside these ordinary ingredients lies a world of extraordinary possibility. Dan Richer has devoted his life to discovering the holy grail of pizza: the secret to making a truly transcendent pies. The pizza at his restaurant, Razza, has been named the best in New York by The New York Times—despite the fact it’s in New Jersey. Richer’s pizza is among the best one can eat in America, if not the world.
 
For him, the joy of pizza begins with the crust—a rim that is crisp, deeply caramelized, and shatters when you bite through it. The crumb is delicate and floral-scented, with a gentle note of acidity. The crust has large, open holes separated by thin, pearlescent cell walls. And the sauce, cheese, and toppings? You’ll unlock their mysteries inside these pages. Every day, Richer assesses his pizza with a 56-point rubric that helps him come as close to pizza perfection as any mortal may dare.
 
In The Joy of Pizza, Richer shows how to achieve each one of these ideal pizza attributes in recipes suited to home bakers and professionals alike. He includes instructions for making doughs with commercial yeast as well as sourdough starter, and for baking in ordinary home ovens as well as high-temperature ovens such as the Ooni and Roccbox, and even wood-fired outdoor pizza ovens. The book is rich with step-by-step photography, and features QR codes linking to instructional videos and portraits of every pizza before and after it meets the heat of the oven—so you’ll know exactly what to do to create superior results.
 
The ingredients are simple. The methods are straightforward. And the results are deliriously delicious.

The Grand Canyon and the Southwest

The Grand Canyon and the Southwest

Honoring Grand Canyon National Park on its centennial, The Grand Canyon and the Southwest elegantly portrays the drama and the beauty of the Canyon and the American Southwest.

“It is all very beautiful and magical here–a quality which cannot be described. You have to live it and breathe it, let the sun bake it into you. The skies and the land are so enormous, and the detail so precise and exquisite…” – Ansel Adams

Next to Yosemite and the High Sierra, the Southwest was closest to Ansel Adams’ heart. It was there, in the early 1930s, that he was inspired to make photography his life’s work. He would return to the region again and again. In his words, “wherever one goes in the Southwest one encounters magic, strength, and beauty.”

Today, the Grand Canyon is one of America’s most popular national parks, hosting more than six million visitors each year. This special edition paperback reproduces Ansel Adams’ exquisite photographs of the Canyon alongside iconic images of the Southwest, spanning Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah. Edited by Andrea G. Stillman with an introduction by William A. Turnage, this collection of seventy dutotone photographs is complemented by Adams’ vivid writings about his travels in the region.

The Grand Canyon and the Southwest is an ideal souvenir or gift for visitors to the Southwest, or for anyone inspired by its beauty.

The Gilded Age in New York, 1870-1910

The Gilded Age in New York, 1870-1910

The drama, expansion, mansions and wealth of New York City’s transformative Gilded Age era, from 1870 to 1910, captured in a magnificently illustrated hardcover.

In forty short years, New York City suddenly became a city of skyscrapers, subways, streetlights, and Central Park, as well as sprawling bridges that connected the once-distant boroughs. In Manhattan, more than a million poor immigrants crammed into tenements, while the half of the millionaires in the entire country lined Fifth Avenue with their opulent mansions.

The Gilded Age in New York captures what is was like to live in Gotham then, to be a daily witness to the city’s rapid evolution.
  • Newspapers, autobiographies, and personal diaries offer fascinating glimpses into daily life among the rich, the poor, and the surprisingly large middle class.
  • The use of photography and illustrated periodicals provides astonishing images that document the bigness of New York: the construction of the Statue of Liberty; the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge; the shimmering lights of Luna Park in Coney Island; the mansions of Millionaire’s Row.
  • Sidebars detail smaller, fleeting moments: Alice Vanderbilt posing proudly in her “Electric Light” ball gown at a society-changing masquerade ball; immigrants stepping off the boat at Ellis Island; a young Theodore Roosevelt witnessing Abraham Lincoln’s funeral.


The Gilded Age in New York is a rare illustrated look at this amazing time in both the city and the country as a whole. Author Esther Crain, the go-to authority on the era, weaves first-hand accounts and fascinating details into a vivid tapestry of American society at the turn of the century.

Praise for New-York Historical Society New York City in 3D In The Gilded Age, also by Esther Crain:
“Vividly captures the transformation from cityscape of horse carriages and gas lamps ‘bursting with beauty, power and possibilities’ as it staggered into a skyscraping Imperial City.” — Sam Roberts, The New York Times

“Get a glimpse of Edith Wharton’s world.” — Entertainment Weekly Must List
“What better way to revisit this rich period . . ?” — Library Journal

The Del Posto Cookbook

The Del Posto Cookbook

by Mark Ladner Foreword by Mario Batali
The definitive cookbook on refined Italian Cuisine by the celebrated chef at Mario Batali’s and Lidia Bastianich’s award-winning destination restaurant in New York City.

Mark Ladner, the Chef at Del Posto, redefines what excellent Italian Cooking in America can be. With a focus on regional Italian ingredients and tradition, Ladner has chosen recipes that bring together flavors from the old country, but in sophisticated new ways, like: Fried Calamari with Spicy Caper Butter Sauce; Red Wine Risotto with Carrot Puree, Monkfish Piccata, Veal Braciole, and Ricotta-Chocolate Tortino

But what is special is that these recipes will really work in the home kitchen, unlike some ambitious cookbooks like this. And given Del Posto’s origin and founders, the book includes recipes by Lidia Bastianich, and forewords by Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich.Plus, the award-winning sommelier at Del Posto offers advice on which Italian varietals to serve with what dishes. All this is complemented by photography that is inspired by 16th century still life paintings.

As the New York Times said in their review: “The food bewilders and thrills.”
