Just a Spritz by Danielle Centoni
Step aside, rosé. A more refreshing drink is here, in a bubbling array of colors and flavors. The iconic Italian export, the Aperol spritz, with its classic (and simple) makeup of fizzy prosecco, sparkling water, and a splash of the bittersweet, citrus-flavored liqueur, is just the beginning. In Just a Spritz, author Danielle Centoni shares an inspired world of spritz variations. Add in sweet liqueurs and bitter amari, fresh juices, flavored kombuchas, and drinking vinegars to update the sparkling spritz. A spritz is quick to assemble and does not require a stocked pantry—its beauty is in its simplicity. Here there are more than 50 recipes (and numerous variations) organized by flavor profile and theme, including the Raspberry Beret, the Margarita Spritz, and the Cucumberbatch, as well as nonalcoholic spritz drinks. For a spritz newbie, a classic Negroni Sbagliato may be just the thing, whereas the social media savant may find the fruity-floral, scarlet-purple, picture-perfect Lady Lavender calling their name. Whatever the craving—from a sweet peach and honeyed spritz to a slightly bitter and citrusy Cappelletti Shandy—there’s a recipe to satisfy every thirst, along with colorful photos to inspire.

For Damuck, the perfect salad balances each bite, with something tart enough to twinge your cheeks, something sweet to balance out the bitter, and something with a little salty crunch to finish. Salad Freak is not just about eating to feel good; it’s about confidently combining flavors to create fresh, bright, and satisfying meals that you will want to make again and again.

It has been on the BC Bestseller List as the #1 title for over 11 weeks and counting... Whitewater Cooks: More Beautiful Food is full of new recipes to inspire fans and once again turn home cooks into culinary rock stars, a hallmark of Shelley’s earlier books. In the Salad section, try the Grilled Peach, Prosciutto and Burratta Salad, Soba Noodles with Prawns or the Fancy Pants Grilled Caesar Salad. From the Sides and Starters section, choose Cornmeal Crusted Tartes with Caramelized Onions, Fig Jam and Goat Cheese, Mike’s Special Potatoes and/or the Hasselback Yams recipe. For an Entreé - there’s Marsala Chicken with Lentils and Butternut Squash, Spiced Lamb and Halloumi Meatballs or the Texas Style Beef Brisket to name just a few.
