About Ann Volkwein
My first books, the Arthur Avenue Cookbook and Chinatown New York, brought together my love for food, culture, everyday people's stories, and the exploration of constantly evolving New York City neighborhoods. Since then I've enjoyed highly successful collaborations with chefs, helping them find their voice on the page, sharing countless adventures and great dishes along the way.

Books By Ann Volkwein
Sarah Gavigan is otaku. Loosely translated, she's a ramen geek. During her twenty years working in film production and as a music executive in L.A., Gavigan ate her way through the local ramen spots, but upon moving back to her native Nashville, she found she missed the steaming bowls of ramen she used to devour. So she dedicated herself to mastering the oft-secretive but always delicious art of ramen-making and opened her own shop within a few years.
An Italian American born and raised in the South, Gavigan is an unlikely otaku. While her knowledge of ramen is rooted in tradition, her methods and philosophies are modern. Though ramen is often shrouded in mystery, Gavigan's 40+ recipes are accessible to the home cook who wants to learn about the cuisine but would sometimes rather make a quick stock in a pressure cooker than labor over a vat of liquid for twenty-four hours.
Ramen Otaku strips the mystique from ramen while embracing its history, magic, and rightful place in the American home kitchen.

Teri’s recipes, most of which are gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and Whole30 compliant, are what makes No Crumbs Left so unique. Simple and incredibly delicious dishes such as Pistachio Pesto Chicken Breast, Shrimp Pad Thai, and Spicy Pepperoncini Beef are on the dinner table quickly. The impossibly easy Sugar Snap Pea Salad features two of Teri’s signature Magic Elixirs, Green Goddess Dressing and Smoky Pepitas, which are both made in advance and kept on hand to elevate countless meals. Her signature Marinated Red Onions, 999 Island Dressing, Gomasio, and Spicy Almond Sauce are true secret weapons. The Family chapter features the special recipes her own children grew up with and evoke home, love, and motherhood. Teri considers this book a love letter to her mother, and woven throughout are tips and favorite quotes to bring you right into her kitchen, where there is always an extra seat at the table.

Long before the first smoker was lit or sauce was ladled, barbecue was born with a Latin twist.

It was a nomadic life demanding open- fire and underground cooking.
In Cowboy Barbecue, chef and restaurateur Adrian Davila celebrates traditions of Latin America and Texas, taking inspiration from the vaquero lifestyle and his own family history. For three generations, Davila’s BBQ in Seguin, Texas, has infused classic brisket, ribs, and sausage with Latin flavors. Davila goes beyond standard grilling in this guide, offering techniques for smoking, cooking directly on the embers, underground, on a spit, and more. Recipes include:

- Vaquero Chili con Carne
- Smoked Pulled Pork
- Fire-Roasted Tomato, Onion, and Serrano Salsa
