The Soup and Bread Cookbook aims to explore the social role of soup through a collection of terrific, affordable recipes from food activists, chefs, and others. This quirky exploration of the cultural history of soup as a tool for both building community and fostering social justice is the result of a brainstorm: eating your way through a pot of soup day after day can get boring — why not get together and swap some with friends? Now neighbors across the country are getting together regularly for home-based "soup swaps." In Chicago, the arts collective InCUBATE uses soup as a microfunding tool. And of course, soup can be a political statement: the radical volunteers of Food Not Bombs have been providing free vegetarian soup to the hungry as a protest against war and social injustice since 1980. These are just a few examples of the stories Bayne wraps around a collection of delicious, accessible, and tested soup recipes.
From Isa Chandra Moskowitz—the bestselling author of Veganomicon—comes a book dedicated to her true love: the home cook. Isa Moskowitz learned to cook from cookbooks, recipe by recipe. And after a few decades of writing her own cookbooks, she knows what the people want: easy-to-follow instructions and accessible ingredients. I Can Cook Vegan is for cooks of all stripes: The Just-Born, Brand New Cook The Tried-and-True Seasoned Cook Who Is Tofu-Curious The Busy Weeknight Pantry Cook (this is everyone) The Farmers’ Market Junkie Who Looks at All the Pretty Colors The Reluctant Parent to the Vegan Child For Anyone Doing Vegan for the Animals For Anyone Doing Vegan for the Health Each chapter is a building block to becoming a better, more competent cook.

Blokes in their natural environment have hectic lives, what between Cricket, Baseball, World Cups, World Series, Friday Night Football and Test Matches. Its amazing we have anytime left for work let alone romance or learning how to cook. A Blokes Guide to Cooking The Ultimate Bluffers Guide delves into the world of bluffing to show easy and creative international recipes within the grasps of the common man Bloke. It unravels the whole process from what utensils you need, picking the right menu then all the way to hiding the evidence after cooking to protect the innocent (mainly us). Now this isnt just another heres the recipes and this is what it should look like type of book. It covers all you need to know to get what you want from cooking, which by the way usually doesn't have much to do with just eating. The mere survival of the bloke species could be threatened if the Bloke does not go forth and multiply (or at least get out of the dog house with the Mrss for just being a bloke). The staple diet of meat and 3 veg still has its place in the blokes natural habitat but cooking to impress (see, I told you cooking didnt have much to do with just eating) takes a little bit more contemplation. Especially if you want to be rocketed to legend status, with the latest fling. We are man, we created fire! So we should be able to cook if someone just gives us a few tips, right?
If chefs are the new rock stars, Anne wants you to rock in your own kitchen! For Anne Burrell, a classically trained chef and host of Food Network’s Secrets of a Restaurant Chef (where she shares impressive recipes and smart techniques that anyone can master), and Worst Cooks in America (the show that transforms hopeless home cooks), being a rock star in the kitchen means having the confidence and ability to get a great meal on the table without a sweat. In her debut cookbook, she presents 125 rustic yet elegant recipes, all based on accessible ingredients, along with encouraging notes and handy professional tricks that will help you cook more efficiently at home. With Anne's guidance, even the novice cook can turn out showstoppers like Whole Roasted Fish or Rack of Lamb Crusted with Black Olives, which are special enough for guests but easy enough for a weekday evening. For Piccolini (Little Nibbles), try making Truffled Deviled Eggs, Sausage and Pancetta Stuffed Mushrooms, or Baked Ricotta with Rosemary and Lemon. Delicious first courses include Pumpkin Soup with Allspice Whipped Cream and Garlic Steamed Mussels with Pimentón Aioli. And if you're craving pasta, Chef Anne's Light-as-a-Cloud Gnocchi, Sweet and Spicy Sausage Ragù, or Killer Mac and Cheese with Bacon will blow you away. Whether she's telling you how to use garlic most effectively ("perfume the oil, remove the garlic, and ditch it—it's fulfilled its garlic destiny!") or reaffirming the most important part of cooking (it should have the “sparkle factor!”), you will never feel alone at the stove. Anne's effervescent personality and unmatched vitality will be there every step of the way--as teacher, coach, cooking partner, and friend. Organized from “Piccolini and Firsts” to “Pasta, Seconds, Sides,” and, of course, “Dessert” Cook Like a Rock Star is all about empowering you with the confidence to own what you do in your kitchen, to be excited by what you're making, and to experience the same kind of joy that Anne feels everyday when she cooks and eats.

Have you ever had your life fall apart, or felt you were on the verge of oblivion and wonder if there were any glimmers of hope ahead? If youre human, its likely that has happened to you at least once. During those times, it may seem like nothing good will ever come your way again. John Goodale felt that way. In his memoir, Johnny Gora, Goodale tells how he watched his entire life crumble. His story begins with growing up in a middle-class home and then embarking on a life of self-delusion, booze and rock n roll in a vain attempt to become a rock star. As that dream died, John found himself in a failed marriage that tore his whole life apart. But when life was at its lowest, he met a new womanhis future wifeand embarked on a humorous crash course in a culture and tradition he grew up around but never really understood. Johnny Gora shows that humor can be found even when things seem the darkest. It may be difficult to see at the time, but as Goodale shows, distance can provide insight into all lifes experiences.
