Like Elizabeth David, Claudia Roden can write about anything. Whether it's Middle Eastern, Spanish or Italian food, she is the cook to turn to. She is world renowned for her classic books like Arabesque and the Book of Jewish Food. These draw on her Egyptian Jewish roots so it's no wonder Middle Eastern chefs like Ottolenghi are among her biggest fans. But it is interesting to see that Russell Norman of Polpo cites Food of Italy as his favourite cookbook. Polpo is very cool, very modern, very Italian and yet still Claudia Roden's classic is his go-to cookbook. Food of Italy was first published 25 years ago next year. But the recipes are so fresh yet timeless they are hard to date. For this edition she has updated over 30% of the recipes to fit modern tastes with new inclusions like farro salad and burrata. The book is structured by region. So you get the glorious tomato and aubergine dishes of Sicily; the classically Roman dishes like salty meat and fried vegetables, and rich Tuscan stews and soups, and so on. With over 300 short recipes it is an incredible repertoire, and it is completely approachable for home cooks. This fully illustrated edition includes recipe photos as well as local Italy scenes. This is the first time it has had photos since it was originally published.

Spaghetti with meatballs, fettuccine alfredo, margherita pizzas, ricotta and parmesan cheeses—we have Italy to thank for some of our favorite comfort foods. Home to a dazzling array of wines, cheese, breads, vegetables, and salamis, Italy has become a mecca for foodies who flock to its pizzerias, gelateries, and family-style and Michelin-starred restaurants. Taking readers across the country’s regions and beyond in the first book in Reaktion’s new Foods and Nations series, Al Dente explores our obsession with Italian food and how the country’s cuisine became what it is today. Fabio Parasecoli discovers that for centuries, southern Mediterranean countries such as Italy fought against food scarcity, wars, invasions, and an unfavorable agricultural environment. Lacking in meat and dairy, Italy developed foodways that depended on grains, legumes, and vegetables until a stronger economy in the late 1950s allowed the majority of Italians to afford a more diverse diet. Parasecoli elucidates how the last half century has seen new packaging, conservation techniques, industrial mass production, and more sophisticated systems of transportation and distribution, bringing about profound changes in how the country’s population thought about food. He also reveals that much of Italy’s culinary reputation hinged on the world’s discovery of it as a healthy eating model, which has led to the prevalence of high-end Italian restaurants in major cities around the globe. Including historical recipes for delicious Italian dishes to enjoy alongside a glass of crisp Chianti, Al Dente is a fascinating survey of this country’s cuisine that sheds new light on why we should always leave the gun and take the cannoli.

London, 1896: Der Dandy Robert Wallis lebt vom Geld seines Vaters, amüsiert sich mit Prostituierten und verbringt seine Zeit am liebsten im Café. Eines Tages lernt er dort den erfolgreichen Kaffeehändler Samuel Pinter kennen, der den verkannten Poeten engagiert. Er soll eine universelle Sprache für die Aromen des Kaffees finden. Robert ist zunächst wenig begeistert. Doch dann trifft er Pinters attraktive Tochter Emily. Und Robert Wallis erhält einen ersten Geschmack davon, wie bitter und wie süß die Liebe sein kann ... «Der Roman bietet glänzende Unterhaltung ... Leichthändig, souverän, mit viel Witz und Sinnlichkeit erzählt.» (NDR Kultur) «Die überraschenden Wendungen der Geschichte und die authentische Liebesgeschichte dürften aus dem Buch einen Publikumsrenner machen.» (Publishers Weekly) «Eine temporeiche Lektüre, vorangetrieben von Capellas meisterhaften Charakterisierungen.» (Kirkus Reviews)

In the same rustic spirit, you will also find Roasted Stuffed Breast of Veal, Braised Veal Shanks, and succulent Breaded Lamb Chops. Biba's frequent family visits to Bologna evoke childhood memories of growing up in this food-lover's paradise, and reaffirms that the kitchen remains the heart and soul of Italian homes.

Zehn Jahre danach: Der Finanzcrash und seine dramatischen Folgen Als die US-Großbank Lehman Brothers im September 2008 zusammenbrach, war dies der Tiefpunkt der Banken- und Finanzkrise. Und obwohl der totale Kollaps der Weltwirtschaft damals verhindert wurde, ist die Finanzkrise noch lange nicht Geschichte, wie der britische Historiker Adam Tooze zeigt. Er schildert, wie es zu dieser Krise der Finanzmärkte kam und welche dramatischen Folgen sie bis heute hat. Denn nicht nur ist durch die Finanzkrise die Stabilität Europas ins Wanken geraten, sie hat auch das Vertrauen in die Kraft der globalen Wirtschaftsordnung erschüttert – und so zum Aufstieg der Populisten beigetragen.
