“Books are a uniquely portable magic”
Stephen King, On Writing 

A picture book. A book with pictures. At Walla Walla General Store we are inspired and delighted by books that allow us to disappear into another world. Art books to stretch the possible and question everything, interiors books to show us new patterns and arrangements and ways of living and cookbooks to allow us to travel to Thailand or New York City or anywhere a date palm will grow. We have a small, everchanging collection of titles for various dreams and ponderings. 

Canal House's Melissa Hamilton and Christopher Hirsheimer are home cooks writing about home cooking for other home cooks. From a lifetime of making dinner every single night, they've edited their experience down to the essentials: 300 simple and genius recipes that reveal the building blocks of all good cooking, and are guaranteed to make you a better cook. Each chapter of Cook Something helps you master a key ingredient or powerful technique, moving from simple (a perfect soft-boiled egg, and how to make it uncommonly delicious) to ambitious (a towering chocolate souffle). Recipes for salad dressingssaucesbraisesroastsmeatballs, vegetables, and even perfect snacks and sweets help novice and experienced cooks alike reach for the perfect dish for any occasion. Filled with step-by-step photographs and indispensable kitchen wisdom, it is a perfect gift for beginners and an ideal reference for confident cooks.
