Sweet and Savory Recipes from Diamond of California

by Tina Salter

When the people at Diamond of California, the world's leading marketer of nuts, decided to create a cookbook, they scoured their archives, developed dozens of new recipes, and turned to some of America's best loved chefs, cooking teachers, and food writers for more. The result is Nuts, Sweet and Savory Recipes from Diamond of California, a collection of more than 100 recipes complemented by lavish color photography and hints and tips to help make the dishes easier and more fun to prepare. You'll find classic comfort food, like Farmhouse Chicken Stew with Buttermilk-Walnut Dumplings; no-stress show-stoppers for entertaining, like Seared Scallop Salad with Grapefruit, Endive, and Walnuts; and, of course, plenty of cookies, cakes, desserts, breads, and quickbreads, from an inventive Macaroon Nut Tart to sumptuous Blueberry-Almond Bread Pudding. Ready to make the foods you cook a little more special? Head for the kitchen...and go nuts!

Includes recipes from top chefs (and nut aficionados!) like Charlie Trotter, Jacques Pèpin, Mollie Katzen, Gary Danko, and Emily Luchetti.

Features an introduction by Gene Spiller, Ph.D., CNS, a renowned authority on nuts and nutrition.

TINA SALTER is a book packager, food writer, and television producer who lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
