Going Nuts

You may notice that they appear festively in the grocery story around the winter holidays, but nuts are an excellent and nutritious food that should be enjoyed year-round. Thanks to William Morrow publishers, Susan Hermann Loomis’s Nuts in the Kitchen can help you find the perfect recipe for your walnuts, pistachios, almonds, pecans, Brazil nuts, and any other nut you can find. Nuts add a flavorful addition to even the simplest food—Loomis offers recipes for almond cake, eggplant with saffron walnuts, Brazil nut fish (she suggests tilapia), and roast pork with pistachios. There are even recipes for the classicists, too: try peanut brittle sprinkled with sesame seeds, or a simple pistachio ice cream. Nuts in the Kitchen is available for $22 in stores and online.
