Great Balls of Cheese by Michelle Buffardi is entirely about making balls of cheese into decorative shapes such as owls, penguins, and footballs for festive occasions. The awesomeness of this speaks for itself.
Beating the Lunch Box Blues JM Hirsch is a book that details healthy, affordable ways to breathe life into your packed lunches without requiring you to spend hours upon hours shaping food into miniature animal sculptures. Because in your normal day-to-day, who has time for that?

I can only imagine what it's like to be married to Jerry Seinfeld and cook for him. "What's the deal with this potato salad? Is it a potato dish, is it a salad? And what's with all the mayo?" Jennifer Seinfeld's The Can't Cook Book, however, is designed not for those who engage in culinary efforts to the soundtrack of popping bass (though you certainly can if you want), but instead is entirely designed for the cooking-phobic to show them how to overcome their kitchen fears and make some delicious recipes.
To see The Photography of Modernist Cuisine, you'll have to stop by the downtown Central library, as our two copies (available from the Art or the Business and Science desks) are reference only. Why?

Inside this behemoth of a book, amazing photographs of equally amazing food are loaded cover to cover. So stop by and take a look today!
