"Can Inmates Cook In Prison?" This book is a how-to for inmates wanting to cook and eat well while serving time in prisons where i...nmate cooking is permitted. Chef Artie Cuisine has written a deliciously entertaining, biographical jailhouse cooking saga, a vivid portrayal of an incarcerated NYC Executive Chef's culinary life cooking in jail. This "Cooking 101" primer teaches inmates how to prepare gourmet meals in prison, without a kitchen, oven or stove. Artie paid his debt to society cooking all the way.  He tested, selected and wrote 110 hard-to-believe-can-be-cooked-in-prison recipes, and mailed them to his lawyer who forwarded them to his publisher. Devising banquets in prison cells was Artie's recreation, currency, safety net, and challenge. This prison cook book is lightweight and easy to store. <div><div></div><div>Inmates can:</div><div></div><div>. Learn how to cook in prison, and apply those gourmet skills on the outside later.</div><div></div><div>. Be inspired by the possibilities of a restaurant career. Restaurant owners often overlook prison records of hard workers with some kitchen skills.</div><div></div><div>. Find the act of cooking food provides a sense of comfort, accomplishment and self-esteem.</div><div></div><div>. As a good cook, gain standing in the inmate community.</div><div></div><div>. Be engaged in a positive, healthy activity making something they are proud of.</div><div></div><div>. Enjoy praise from fellow inmates (and staff) for the product of their labor.</div><div></div><div>. Earn "currency" for cooking custom items on request.</div><div></div><div>. Learn about American and international cuisine and common foreign food terms.</div><div></div><div>. Learn how to make the best of what's available at the commissary.</div><div></div><div>. Learn what foods and utensils are legally allowed sent in from outside.</div><div></div><div>. Feel useful and worthwhile, while alleviating boredom.</div><div></div><div>. Experience the comfort of cooking and eating away from the mess hall.</div><div></div><div>. Enjoy special Holiday Recipes for Thanksgiving, Easter, and Christmas. Artie says: </div><div>. "Because we're incarcerated doesn't mean we can't celebrate the holidays in style". </div><div></div><div>  And</div><div></div><div>. Never have to eat another spread!</div><div>  <div>Rudely eloquent and irreverent this is a quirky journey of physical and emotional survival. </div><div></div><div>A 262 page, no-holds-barred tell-all about a stubborn, plucky, resolute chef's passion to cook and eat well in prison.  It's part story, manual, food survival handbook, humor and inspiration. Chapters include: Breakfast Items; Soups & Entrees; Taste of Spain; Asian Corner; Little Italy; Some Sauces & A Few Extras; Desserts & Sweet Things, and an unexpected Holiday Menu chapter with sumptuous dishes for a prison Thanksgiving, Easter and Christmas: Pineapple-Glazed Baked Ham; BBQ Fried Chicken; Roast Garlic Whipped Potatoes; Candied Yams; Caramelized Onion & Corn Stuffing; Apple Orange Cranberry Sauce; Cookie Crusted Pumpkin Pie; and so much more. </div><div></div><div>Chef Artie reveals how to navigate cooking in the prison system with: Equipment to Make Your Cooking Life Easier; Food Items Sold at My Commissary; Food and Utensils My Facilities Allowed Sent in From Outside; and Typical Foods I Requested From Home. </div><div></div><div>These recipes can also be made in school dorms, RVs, on camping trips, at home, and any place without a proper kitchen. </div><div></div><div>Artie's survival mantra "No oven? No stove? No problem!" strengthened his resolve to eat well in prison - even in the 'Box'. Cooking was a daily dare. Self preservation equaled gang protection in exchange for dinner on the table. He proudly followed the Marine credo: 'Improvise, Adapt, Overcome'. Inmates passing Artie's area were astounded to see fresh pasta hanging to dry, a white sheet thrown over a locker as a dining table, a centerpiece of cell-made garlic bread sticks, and bowls of mouthwatering food. </div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div>So hold onto your toque, grab your apron, and take a wild ride with Chef Artie as he weaves his magic with these prisoner recipes. </div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div></div></div></div> Read More
