|Behind Bars: The Straight-Up Tales of a Big-City Bartender|
After reading Behind Bars, a no-holds-barred tell-all in the spirit of Kitchen Confidential, you'll never look at your favorite bartender the same way again. <P>Ty Wenzel offers a raw and clever account of slinging drinks in New York City on the Bowery before and during its renaissance. Wenzel, now thirty-six, has just thrown in the towel after a decade at the swank Marion's Continental Restaurant and Lounge--a gig that was supposed to be a temporary escape after corporate burnout, but instead, like with most bartenders, took over her life. <P>Honest, clever, and often scathingly funny, this memoir at once offers outrageous tales, the dirty little secrets of the trade, and inspired commentary on bar culture and the human condition. Wenzel's candid stories of life behind the bar covers everything: sex, money, celebrities, the tricks mixers play on you to get you to stay on that stool, how to jumpstart your own bartender fantasy, that all-important tip . . . and how "pink drinks" like the Cosmopolitan are ruining civilization. <P>Behind Bars is also a riveting narrative of Wenzel's life outside the bar, which is complicated by her Islamic background, her drive to save enough money and get out of "the life," and the ultimate realization that the grueling lifestyle that is driving her crazy is also something she has grown to love.

|Chocolate Matter - Matiere Chocolat (English)|
Chocolate Matter, the stunning book by Stephane Leroux. At first glance, it's almost unimaginable that a wave, rose, granite, bamboo cane or mahogany plank could be made of chocolate. Each masterpiece reflects the technical expertise of Stephane Leroux in bringing matter to life in such striking fashion."Everything inspires me", explains Stephane Leroux, who draws on architecture, painting, sculpture... in his work. But it is nature - the sea, the birds, the plants and the flowers that stirs his imagination the most. This edition contains two books with one containing stunning photographs along with the main book of reciepes and techniques.
What he produces in chocolate not only verges on perfection, but also offers that added spirit found in leading visual artists: a unique ability to capture light and spread its effects throughout an entire work. Stephane Leroux, recognised pastry chef is one of those who believe in the need to pass on the baton so that new generations can strive even further and continue this quest for perfection.
With this in mind, take time to cast your eyes over the work within the work, the second book of the box set Chocolate Matters. In the 416 pages of these Design Techniques for Chocolate, Stephane Leroux presents about 50 style exercises using a step-by-step approach, from the creation of a stem in cocoa butter to the production of a concrete brick!
More than 1200 photographs with accompanying text offer a wealth of detail on the progress of each piece, from the raw material, chocolate, to its transformation into a work of art, at the same time bringing all his creations within reach of everyone.

FROM THE AUTHOR: When I began in the coffee business fourteen years ago, I read every book I could find about coffee. After reading all of those books, however, I felt as if I hadn't learned much about how to make great coffee. My coffee library was chock-full of colorful descriptions of brewing styles, growing regions, and recipes, with a few almost-unreadable scientific books mixed in. I would have traded in all of those books for one serious, practical book with relevant information about making great coffee in a café.
Fourteen years later, I still haven't found that book. I know many other professionals as well as some obsessive nonprofessionals would like to find that same book I've been looking for. This book is my attempt to give it to them.

Brand: 10 Speed Press
The debut cookbook from the restaurant Gourmet magazine named the best in the country.<br><br>A pioneer in American cuisine, chef Grant Achatz represents the best of the molecular gastronomy movement--brilliant fundamentals and exquisite taste paired with a groundbreaking approach to new techniques and equipment. ALINEA showcases Achatz's cuisine with more than 100 dishes (totaling 600 recipes) and 600 photographs presented in a deluxe volume. Three feature pieces frame the book: Michael Ruhlman considers Alinea's role in the global dining scene, Jeffrey Steingarten offers his distinctive take on dining at the restaurant, and Mark McClusky explores the role of technology in the Alinea kitchen. Buyers of the book will receive access to a website featuring video demonstrations, interviews, and an online forum that allows readers to interact with Achatz and his team. <br><br>"Achatz is something new on the national culinary landscape: a chef as ambitious as Thomas Keller who wants to make his mark not with perfection but with constant innovation . . . Get close enough to sit down and allow yourself to be teased, challenged, and coddled by Achatz's version of this kind of cooking, and you can have one of the most enjoyable culinary adventures of your life." --Corby Kummer, senior editor of Atlantic Monthly<br><br>"Someone new has entered the arena. His name is Grant Achatz, and he is redefining the American restaurant once again for an entirely new generation . . . Alinea is in perpetual motion; having eaten here once, you can't wait to come back, to see what Achatz will come up with next." --GourmetReviews & AwardsJames Beard Foundation Cookbook Award Finalist: Cooking from a professional Point of View Category James Beard Foundation Outstanding Chef Award! "Even if your kitchen isn't equipped with a paint-stripping heat gun, thermocirculator, or refractometer, and you're only vaguely aware that chefs use siphons and foams in contemporary cooking, you can enjoy this daring cookbook from Grant Achatz of the Chicago restaurant Alinea.. . . While the recipes can hardly become part of your everday cooking, this book is far too interesting to be left on the coffee table. As you read, a question emerges: Is Alinea's food art? . . . I go a little further, describing Achatz with a word that he would probably never use to describe himself: avant-garde, as it defined art movements at the beginning of the last century--planned, self-concious, and structured attempts to provoke and shake the status quo. Just as with those artists, the results are not necessarily as interesting as the intentions and concepts behind them. In this sense, this volume constitutes a full-blown although not threatening manifesto."—Art of Eating

|Grappa: A Guide to the Best|
Brand: Abbeville Press
Despite grappa's favored place today in even the most exclusive bars, its origins are humble. It was created primarily to avoid wasting the pomace -- the skins, pips, stems, and pulp left over from the winemaking process. The pomace was then distilled, creating a clear brandy often considered too fiery and inelegant for sophisticated palates. But as vintners began to craft world-class wines out of grapes and regions once thought unsophisticated, and as boutique bourbons and single-malt Scotches became trendy, grappa too was ready for a revival.<p>A brief history of this distillate is followed by a discussion of what distinguishes it from other pomace brandies made in Italy and elsewhere. High-quality brands are now often handcrafted by a select few vintners and distillers, and the authors explain each step of making grappa, from the harvest to the aging, bottling, and production. The heart of this handsome volume consists of two A to Z guides: one of the vintners, who tend to be smaller producers; and the other of the distillers, most of whom produce in greater quantities. A brief overview of the history, methods, equipment, and grapes is supplied for each producer, and the tasting notes that follow are both informative and evocative.<p>Grappa is a guide to finding pleasure in a drink whose essence has often been obscured by snobbery. With a well-conceived introduction and a thoughtful, straightforward catalog of producers, this book should prove an essential reference for newcomers and for connoisseurs.
|Food and Drink in American History [3 volumes]: A "Full Course" Encyclopedia|
<p>The expression "you are what you eat" certainly applies to Americans, not just in terms of our physical health, but also in the myriad ways that our taste preferences, eating habits, and food culture are intrinsically tied to our society and history. This standout reference work comprises two volumes containing more than 600 alphabetically arranged historical entries on American foods and beverages, as well as dozens of historical recipes for traditional American foods; and a third volume of more than 120 primary source documents. Never before has there been a reference work that coalesces this diverse range of information into a single set.</p><p></p><p>The entries in this set provide information that will transform any American history research project into an engaging learning experience. Examples include explanations of how tuna fish became a staple food product for Americans, how the canning industry emerged from the Civil War, the difference between Americans and people of other countries in terms of what percentage of their income is spent on food and beverages, and how taxation on beverages like tea, rum, and whisky set off important political rebellions in U.S. history.</p>
|Street Food around the World: An Encyclopedia of Food and Culture|
<p>Street foods run deep throughout human history and show the movements of peoples and their foods across the globe.

This encyclopedia surveys common street foods in about 100 countries and regions of the world, clearly depicting how "fast foods of the common people" fit into a country or a region's environments, cultural history, and economy. The entries provide engaging information about specific foods as well as coverage of vendor and food stall culture and issues. An appendix of recipes allows for hands-on learning and provides opportunities for readers to taste international street foods at home.</p>

<p>The title <i>They Eat That?: A Cultural Encyclopedia of Weird and Exotic Food from around the World</i> says it all. This fun encyclopedia, organized A–Z, describes and offers cultural context for foodstuffs people eat today that might be described as "weird"—at least to the American palate. Entries also include American regional standards, such as scrapple and chitterlings, that other regions might find distasteful, as well as a few mainstream American foods, like honey, that are equally odd when one considers their derivation. </p><p></p><p>A long narrative entry on insects, for example, discusses the fact that insects are enjoyed as a regular part of the diet in some Asian, South and Central American, and African countries. It then looks at the kinds of insects eaten, where and how they are eaten, cultural uses, nutrition, and preparation. Each of the encyclopedia's 100 entries includes a representative recipe or, for a food already prepared like maggoty cheese, describes how it is eaten. Each entry ends with suggested readings.</p>
