Dishing Up New Jersey 

DishingUpCoverBy John Holl

These 150 recipes include dishes featuring New Jersey’s own produce -- tomatoes, corn, cranberries, blueberries, apples -- along with deep-fried boardwalk treats, late-night diner bites, and recipes contributed by casinos, bison and dairy farms, food trucks, old-school delis, famous bakeries, and more.  Beautifully photographed, this collection is the ultimate tribute to New Jersey’s best.

The American Craft Beer Cookbook

By John Holl
John Holl, an enthusiast who believes that there’s a perfect beer for every meal, conducts an exciting tour of delicious food designed to eat with fine craft beer. Thinking beyond standard burgers and nachos, talented brewpub chefs offer pairings such as Pistachio-Crusted Salmon Sandwiches served with a bright hefeweizen, and Curried Pumpkin Chicken Soup paired with — what else? — a pumpkin stout. Craft beer never tasted so good.
