Gini Anding and Amy Page first met in a pastry shop on the main street of the Ile Saint-Louis in Paris. It was a chilly, rainy evening, and both were wearing the same navy blue raincoat and carrying identical black umbrellas. At the counter, they both ordered two slices of quiche Lorraine and four small palmiers. Simultaneously, they burst out laughing. While one is slightly shorter and plumper than the other, both are blondes and also Americans. "We could be taken for sisters " one of them exclaimed. From this chance encounter came a magical friendship and The Amateur Gourmet. Sometimes in the world of fiction, a character takes off and the author loses control. So it is with Gini Anding and Amy Page in the Witness series of romantic mystery novels: Witness on the Quay (2005), Witness at the Bridge (2006), Witness in the Square (2006), and a work in progress, Witness by the Church. Amy is the protagonist in these novels, and she is writing a cookbook, a project that many of her friends thought she'd never finish because of her constant additions and revisions. Even her creator began to despair of having her find the last period. Fortunately, it just so happens that Gini shares Amy's love of cooking and interest in all things culinary. It was only natural that Gini take over and make Amy's cookbook real, proving once and for all that creations of the imagination exist in our concrete everyday reality.

More from the Amateur Gourmet is a continuation of The Amateur Gourmet, published in 2006. Like its predecessor, it strives to lessen the complexities of gourmet cooking for the everyday cook. It contains recipes that can be prepared just as easily in a small and limited cooking space as in a large state-of-the-art professional kitchen. A few are so effortless that one marvels at their actual simplicity. Again, as in the original, the section on Tips and Techniques provides shortcuts, making the complex dish eminently do-able. Each page offers the home cook an insight into the world of gourmet cooking, turns the kitchen into an art studio, and makes creative cooking an everyday event instead of a mundane boring same old same old. The discerning palate knows good food and really doesn’t care if the food served is prepared by a rank beginner, a non-professional cook, or a highly paid chef. All that matters is that the dish taste good and provide the diner with pleasure. A French poet, Marcelin Pleynet, has written that each book always has one more page, and so it is with any cookbook. There is always one more recipe, one more tip, one more approach to the tried and true, one more twist to the old standby, one more dish to be attempted, one more food discovery to experience, one more technique to master. In a nutshell, Irma Bombeck was right. Cooking is a joy, and that is why there is More from the Amateur Gourmet.

Every story can change a life. Watch a video Growing up isn't easy. Many young people face daily tormenting and bullying, making them feel like they have nowhere to turn. This is especially true for LGBT kids and teens who often hide their sexuality for fear of bullying. Without other openly gay adults and mentors in their lives, they can't imagine what their future may hold. In many instances, gay and lesbian adolescents are taunted - even tortured - simply for being themselves. After a number of tragic suicides by LGBT students who were bullied in school, syndicated columnist and author Dan Savage uploaded a video to YouTube with his partner Terry Miller to inspire hope for LGBT youth facing harassment. Speaking openly about the bullying they suffered as teenagers, and how they both went on to lead rewarding adult lives, their video launched the It Gets Better Project YouTube channel and initiated a worldwide phenomenon. With over 6,000 videos posted and over 20 million views in the first three months alone, the world has embraced the opportunity to provide personal, honest and heartfelt support for LGBT youth everywhere. It Gets Better is a collection of expanded essays and new material from celebrities, everyday people and teens who have posted videos of encouragement, as well as new contributors who have yet to post videos to the site. While many of these teens couldn't see a positive future for themselves, we can. We can show LGBT youth the levels of happiness, potential and positivity their lives will reach if they can just get through their teen years. By sharing these stories, It Gets Better reminds teenagers in the LGBT community that they are not alone - and it WILL get better.

When I decided to write this book, I made sure to include old recipes that are very dear to me and can no longer be found in any restaurant menus, but I also included some modern ones. Also I tried to use recipes from as many different countries I could. Some countries are well known for their food, some other are still unknown to the majority of people. Hopefully by reading this book and or trying to make some of these recipes, will bring you back some good old memories of your youth, when Mom or Grandma was cooking. Walter Cannara, born in Rome, Italy, has been living in the New York area for the past 37 years. The past 3 years he has become a resident of Vero Beach, Florida.
