In Appetites stellt Anthony Bourdain seine Lieblingsgerichte vor, die ihm schon während seiner Kindheit, später in seiner Karriere als Koch und natürlich auf seinen Reisen ans Herz gewachsen sind. Doch Appetites ist weit mehr als ein Kochbuch. Es ist ein Kunstwerk. Ein Manifest. Eine Reflexion über das (richtige) Leben und ein Schlachtplan für die Küche, der dabei hilft, Gäste mit atemberaubender Effizienz in Schrecken zu versetzen. Die Fotos sind rebellisch, frech, ungeschönt, unkonventionell. Sie zeigen, wie es in einer Küche wirklich zugeht, und zelebrieren Bourdains Bad-Boy-Image auf schaurig-schöne Weise. Die Gerichte schmecken dennoch fantastisch und sollten – in Bourdains Augen – wirklich von jedem gekocht werden können.

Eine Frau, ihre Stadt und ein Rezept für die Liebe Als sie sich ins Kochen verliebte, war Luisa Weiss noch ein junges Mädchen.

Nach einer weiteren schmerzlichen Trennung wagte sie den Sprung ins Ungewisse und zog von New York in die deutsche Hauptstadt – um sich selbst zu finden und endlich auch die wahre Liebe ...

Located in the very heart of the eastern Mediterranean, the area comprising Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan has provided the world with what is considered by many to be Arab food at its best. In this landmark, one-of-a-kind volume Sonia Uvezian gives this time-honored cuisine the kind of presentation it truly deserves. "Recipes and Remembrances from an Eastern Mediterranean Kitchen" is a revelatory work rich in personal reminiscences; insightful quotations, anecdotes, and proverbs; valuable information on ingredients, utensils, daily meals, and traditions; and evocative period illustrations. Sonia Uvezian's many memories and associations establish a sense of place and emotional pull rarely encountered in Middle Eastern culinary literature. The "eastern Mediterranean Kitchen" in the title is actually that of her family's summer home in the Bekaa Valley, Lebanon's fertile agricultural and winemaking region, as well as the one in their Beirut apartment. It is where the Uvezians prepared the food they grew themselves or bought from nearby farms, orchards, and markets. Written by an expert in the field and over two decades in the making, "Recipes and Remembrances" is a fascinating and highly original book imbued with a keen historical perspective and a deep respect for the region's cultural heritage. Few cookbook authors have approached their subjects with the thorough, painstaking research reflected in this work. A profound understanding of eastern Mediterranean food shines through in its hundreds of superb, clearly written recipes, which are often preceded by illuminating introductory remarks. From the definitive section on pomegranates and pomegranate molasses through the fabulous chapters on desserts and beverages, this book provides indispensable reading for anyone interested in the cookery and culture of Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan. Like the author's groundbreaking classics, "The Cuisine of Armenia" and "Cooking from the Caucasus," which were among the first to bring Middle Eastern and Caucasian cooking to America, it is long on such traditional dishes as tabbuleh and baklava but also includes innovations, among them Damascus-Style Cheese Dip with Toasted Sesame Seeds and Nigella and Grilled Quail with Sour Cherry Sauce. Timeless and timely, "Recipes and Remembrances from an Eastern Mediterranean Kitchen" is a welcome blend of outstanding scholarship and entertaining reading. A genuine contribution to culinary literature, it has achieved the status of a classic. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Sonia Uvezian was born and brought up in Beirut, Lebanon. A leading authority on Middle Eastern and Caucasian cooking and the winner of a James Beard Award, she is the author of six other highly acclaimed cookbooks, including "The Cuisine of Armenia," "Cooking from the Caucasus," and "The Book of Yogurt." Several of her books have been selections of Book-of-the-Month Club and published internationally. Ms. Uvezian has also contributed articles and recipes to Gourmet, Bon Appetit, Vogue, and numerous other publications."

New York im Jahr 2001. Große Ziele hatten sich die drei Freunde aus wohlsituierten Verhältnissen einst gesetzt. Jetzt sind sie um die dreißig und müssen feststellen, dass sie ihren Erwartungen nicht gerecht geworden sind. Marina ist ohne festen Job, ihre Freundin Danielle hat zwar eine feste Stelle, weiß aber nichts mit ihr anzufangen, und Julius gelingt es mehr schlecht als recht, seinen aufwändigen Lebensstil mit dem Schreiben von Literaturkritiken zu finanzieren. Ein jeder für sich versuchen sie, das moralische und ideelle Vakuum, in dem sie leben, zu füllen, und nicht einmal der intellektuelle Übervater der Generation – Marinas Vater, der Journalist Murray Thwaite – ahnt, was ihnen allen droht. Da taucht aus der Provinz Marinas Cousin Bootie auf, und seine Ambitionen stellen sie alle gefährlich bloß, kurz bevor der 11. September ihre ganze Welt verändert.

Aravind Adigas dritter Roman erzählt von zwei jungen Brüdern auf der Suche nach sich selbst, vom Sport als Aufstiegschance und gnadenlosem Wettbewerb, von jungen Talenten und alten Talentsuchern, von Liebe und Ausbeutung, von Leidenschaft und Gewalt. Manjunath Kumar ist vierzehn. Er weiß, dass er ein guter Kricketspieler ist, vielleicht sogar so gut wie sein älterer Bruder Radha. Er weiß, warum er seinen dominanten und sportbesessenen Vater fürchtet, seinen brillanten Bruder bewundert und von der Welt amerikanischer Serien sowie interessanter wissenschaftlicher Fakten fasziniert ist. Aber es gibt vieles, das er noch nicht weiß – über sich selbst und die Welt um ihn herum. Als er Radhas großen Rivalen kennenlernt, einen privilegierten Jungen voller Selbstvertrauen, beginnt sich für Manju alles auf den Kopf zu stellen und er muss Entscheidungen treffen, die seine Welt verändern. Suggestiv und sensibel, bissig und schwungvoll – ein neuer, eindrucksvoller Roman des indischen Bestsellerautors und Booker-Prize-Gewinners
