Dopo aver allevato un piccolo gregge di agnelli su pascoli di erba fresca, seguendo una tecnica antica e complessa che aveva coinvolto l’intera fattoria, Dan Barber propone finalmente nel suo ristorante le deliziose costolette ottenute con tanta fatica. Accompagnate da puré alla menta e zucchine grigliate, nel giro di pochi istanti vanno completamente esaurite: mesi di lavoro vengono divorati in un batter di ciglia dai primi avventori del ristorante, come un hot dog qualsiasi. Sconfortato, Barber commenta: «La sera in cui le costolette fecero il tutto esaurito, cominciai a pensare che il pelo nel nostro uovo fosse il menu stesso, o per meglio dire la concezione occidentale del menu, ancora legata a una dieta proteinocentrica». La cucina della buona terra parte da questa considerazione e ci conduce in un viaggio fantastico, in ogni parte del mondo, a conoscere i migliori allevatori, i migliori pescatori e i migliori agricoltori, scoprirne la dedizione, l’attenzione alla loro terra e al loro mare, in un grande affresco di arte culinaria che è anche un’ode accorata alla sostenibilità del pianeta e alla felicità di farne parte. Soprattutto quando mangiamo. Dal fast-food al chilometro zero si è fatto un grande passo avanti, ma si tende ancora a pensare che il menu del ristorante debba dettare l’agenda degli agricoltori e degli allevatori, mentre Barber è convinto che le cose stiano esattamente al contrario: un buon chef interpreta il cibo e mette nel piatto, con arte, i frutti del lavoro di coloro che gli alimenti li fanno crescere assecondando la natura e producendo ciò che la terra sa fare meglio, non ciò che il cliente vuole a tutti i costi. È una rivoluzione copernicana della cucina e delle abitudini, ma è necessaria e per fortuna gustosa. Il viaggio decennale di Dan Barber tra questi agricoltori così ostinati, che lui descrive in tutta la loro umanità, ha dato questo libro come frutto. Leggerlo è un piacere, almeno pari a quello di sedersi al suo ristorante di Blue Hill.

First published in 1891, Pellegrino Artusi?s La scienza in cucina e l?arte di mangier bene has come to be recognized as the most significant Italian cookbook of modern times. It was reprinted thirteen times and had sold more than 52,000 copies in the years before Artusi?s death in 1910, with the number of recipes growing from 475 to 790. And while this figure has not changed, the book has consistently remained in print. Although Artusi was himself of the upper classes and it was doubtful he had ever touched a kitchen utensil or lit a fire under a pot, he wrote the book not for professional chefs, as was the nineteenth-century custom, but for middle-class family cooks: housewives and their domestic helpers. His tone is that of a friendly advisor ? humorous and nonchalant. He indulges in witty anecdotes about many of the recipes, describing his experiences and the historical relevance of particular dishes. Artusi?s masterpiece is not merely a popular cookbook; it is a landmark work in Italian culture. This English edition (first published by Marsilio Publishers in 1997) features a delightful introduction by Luigi Ballerini that traces the fascinating history of the book and explains its importance in the context of Italian history and politics. The illustrations are by the noted Italian artist Giuliano Della Casa.

A 60-recipe book from an internationally acclaimed chef/brewer duo dedicated to elevating and pairing beer with high-end dining. The debut book by Danish gypsy brewer Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø of the bar Tørst, and Canadian chef Daniel Burns of the Michelin-starred restaurant Luksus—both in a shared space in Greenpoint, Brooklyn where they elevate beer to the level of wine in fine dining. With a dialogue running throughout the book, Food & Beer examines the vision and philosophy of this duo at the forefront of a new gastronomic movement. With a stunning, bold aesthetic, the design will highlight the dual visions of the authors and the spaces—Tørst, which is more rustic and relaxed, and Luksus, which is more sleek and refined. Foreword by internationally renowned chef René Redzepi, co-owner of Noma, Copenhagen, the #3 restaurant in the world.

In the basement of a Boston bookstore, Firmin is born in a shredded copy Finnegans Wake, nurtured on a diet of Zane Grey, Lady Chatterley’s Lover, and Jane Eyre (which tastes a lot like lettuce). While his twelve siblings gnaw these books obliviously, for Firmin the words, thoughts, deeds, and hopes—all the literature he consumes—soon consume him. Emboldened by reading, intoxicated by curiosity, foraging for food, Firmin ventures out of his bookstore sanctuary, carrying with him all the yearnings and failings of humanity itself. It’s a lot to ask of a rat—especially when his home is on the verge of annihilation. A novel that is by turns hilarious, tragic, and hopeful, Firmin is a masterpiece of literary imagination. For here, a tender soul, a vagabond and philosopher, struggles with mortality and meaning—in a tale for anyone who has ever feasted on a book…and then had to turn the final page. NOTE: This edition does not include illustrations.

The Banquet is a work written by Dante Alighieri roughly between 1304 and 1307. This unfinished work of Dante consists of four trattati, or "books": a prefatory one, plus three books that each include a canzone (long lyrical poem) and a prose allegorical interpretation or commentary of the poem that goes off in multiple thematic directions. The Banquet is a major stage of development for Dante, very different from the visionary world of the Vita nuova (although like the earlier work it too is a medium for the author's evolving sense of artistic vocation and philosophical-spiritual quest). This difference is reflected in how the two works use the prosimetrum format: in the Vita Nova there is a complex interrelation and intertwining between the prose and the poetry, while in the Banquet large blocks of prose have an autonomous existence apart from the poems; the content of the poetry is not amplified or edited in the prose so much as commented upon prosaically, to serve as points of departure for the various subjects that the Banquet discusses. Dante himself tells us that the prose of the Banquet is "temperate and virile," in contrast to the "fervid and passionate" prose of the Vita Nova; and that while the approach to this in the work of his youth was "like dreaming" the Banquet approaches it subjects soberly and wide awake, often modeling its style on Scholastic authors. The Banquet is a kind of vernacular encyclopedia of the knowledge of Dante's time; it touches on many areas of learning, not only philosophy but also politics, linguistics, science, and history. The treatise begins with the prefatory book, or proem, which explains why a book like the Banquet is needed and why Dante is writing it in the vernacular instead of Latin. It is one of Dante's early defenses of the vernacular, expressed in greater detail in his (slightly earlier) linguistic treatise De vulgari eloquentia (On Eloquence in the Vernacular).

From the godfather of Italian noir “A noir writer richly deserving rediscovery.” —Publishers Weekly One balmy spring evening on the outskirts of Milan, a Fiat with two passengers plunges into a canal. At first, their deaths are registered as an accident. But Duca Lamberti, the doctor-turned-detective of Giorgio Scerbanenco’s legendary series, suspects there’s more to it than that. Because that same canal has been the scene of other deaths, and all the incidents have one man in common: a lawyer with a murky past stretching all the way back to World War II—a man who, in fact, once shared a prison cell with Lamberti. Winner of the most prestigious European crime prize on its original publication in 1966, Traitors to All is classic noir by one of the greatest writers of the genre—a book that lays bare the connections between Milan’s troubled history during the war and its swinging sixties affluence, as well as an utterly absorbing tale of betrayal and revenge.
