allaboutapples2.jpgAt TastingMenu.com you will find two gorgeous ebooks featuring spectacular food photography and an in-depth look at two creative menus from two dynamic chefs.  While beautiful cookbooks are hardly a rarity, what makes these books stand out is the price. They are free downloads. All About Apples, a tasting menu from Scott Carsberg of Lampreia offers a creative menu including apples in each recipe. Such intriguing dishes as “Dungenss Crap wrapped in Red Delicious Apples” and “Cooked and Raw Zumi Apple with Red Prawn and Virgin Olive Oil Dressing” make  a trip to Seattle’s Lampreia Restaurant to sample some of Chef Carsberg’s food seem an absolute necessity.

The second ebook,  Autumn Omakase, a tasting menu from Tatsu Nishino of Nishino, presents an equallyautumnokase.jpg stunning menu based on Chef Nishino’s modern and very creative Japanese cuisine that he presents at his Seattle restaurant. Recipes are accompanied by equally delicious photographs featuring recipes such as “Seared Foie Gras, Maguro and Shitake Mushroom with Red Wine Soy Reduction” and “Hamachi with Balsamic Teriyaki.”

These wonderful free downloads offer a detailed look at the concepts of two chefs that you may have never discovered on the bookshelves of Barnes and Noble.  Beautiful and concise, this new type of publication offers cooks information that allows the home cook to take their technique to a new level and lets you save your money for food and wine.
