Bold: A Cookbook of Big Flavors ($19.95) brings together the beloved American tradition of delicious, plate-filling meals with the lively global flavors that infuse our culture and cuisine. Created and written by Susanna Hoffman and Victoria Wise—part of the culinary team who helped found Chez Panisse—Bold is comfort food that’s been given an exuberant 21st-century makeover. Hoffman and Wise were cooking sustainably before that term was coined—so although the food is bold, the recipes are carefully crafted, the roasts are slow cooked, the soups brim with flavor, the vegetables are caramelized and braised, and the desserts are decadent.
Susanna Hoffman is an anthropologist and food writer. She was one of the original co-owners of Chez Panisse, where she met Victoria Wise. The two went on to cofound Oakland’s Good & Plenty Café. Susanna wrote The Olive and the Caper with Victoria and has written for Saveur, Fine Cooking, Bon Appétit, and many other publications. She has appeared on cooking shows from coast to coast; major appearances include Good Morning America, Oprah, The Food Network, Discovery, CNN, and PBS. She lives in Telluride, Colorado.
Victoria Wise was the first chef at Chez Panisse. She went on to establish the acclaimed Pig-by-the-Tail, the first French-style delicatessen in America. She has contributed to various magazines, including Food & Wine and Men's Fitness, and she wrote a column, "The Compleat Kitchen," for the Los Angeles Times Syndicate. Victoria’s cookbooks include Sausage: Recipes for Making and Cooking with Homemade Sausage, The Armenian Table, and The Gardeners’ Community Cookbook. She lives with her family in Oakland, California, and blogs
As a team Susanna and Victoria have coauthored The Well-Filled Tortilla Cookbook, The Well-Filled Microwave Cookbook, and Good and Plenty: America's New Home Cooking.
