There are many people who are enthusiastic about food—the cooking of it, the preparation of it, the serving of it, and let’s not forget the eating of it.
But Andrew Delaplaine is the ultimate Food Enthusiast. 
This is another of his books with spot-on reviews of the most exciting restaurants in town. Some will merit only a line or two, just to bring them to your attention. Others deserve a half page or more. 
“Exciting” does not necessarily mean expensive. The area’s top spots get the recognition they so richly deserve (and that they so loudly demand), but there are plenty of “sensible alternatives” for those looking for good food handsomely prepared by cooks and chefs who really care what they “plate up” in the kitchen.
For those with a touch of Guy Fieri, Delaplaine ferrets out the best food for those on a budget. That dingy looking dive bar around the corner may serve up one of the juiciest burgers in town, perfect to wash down with a locally brewed craft beer.
Whatever your predilection or taste, cuisine of choice or your budget, you may rely on Andrew Delaplaine not to disappoint. 
Delaplaine dines anonymously at the Publisher’s expense. No restaurant listed in this series has paid a penny or given so much as a free meal to be included. 
Bon Appétit!

    The Path is the journey of a lifetime to self discovery.
    It is the story of a group of international travellers who walk the Camino de Santiago, the ancient eight hundred kilometre pilgrimage from the Pyrenees to the remains of the apostle Saint James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostella in Northern Spain.  
    The group are of all ages, all professions, all religious denominations (and none.)  They include a sexobsessed British ex army captain, a beautiful Danish businesswoman, a manic Austrian architect, A Welsh painter, a driven American priest and a comic duo, mother and daughter from Canada.  
    The thirtyfive day walk is tough and demanding,  They relate intellectually, spiritually and sexually, as they search for their own deep and personal truths which are not always what they expect  or want  to find.  
    The climax is a terrible and shocking death which changes their view of themselves forever as they arrive in the holy city.

    Ten essays on nature, ritual, and philosophy “that are so point-blank vital you nearly need to put the book down to settle yourself” (San Francisco Chronicle). Gretel Ehrlich’s world is one of solitude and wonder, pain and beauty, and these elements give life to her stunning prose. Ever since her acclaimed debut, The Solace of Open Spaces, she has illuminated the particular qualities of nature and the self with graceful precision.   In Islands, the Universe, Home, Ehrlich expands her explorations, traveling to the remote reaches of the earth and deep into her soul. She tells of a voyage of discovery in northern Japan, where she finds her “bridge to heaven.” She captures a “light moving down a mountain slope.” She sees a ruined city in the face of a fire-scarred mountain. Above all, she recalls what a painter once told her about art when she was twelve years old, as she sat for her portrait: “You have to mix death into everything. Then you have to mix life into that.”   In this unforgettable collection, Ehrlich mixes life and death, real and sacred, to offer a stunning vision of our world that is both achingly familiar and miraculously strange. According to National Book Award–winning author Andrea Barrett, these essays are “as spare and beautiful as the landscape from which they’ve grown. . . . Each one is a pilgrimage into the secrets of the heart.”

    Live Anywhere On The Go Discovering The World
    Have you ever wished that you could solely travel all over the world to anywhere you want at any time - no matter how little to no money you have? Even better, what if you are a homebody who has never been anywhere in your life outside of the state and don’t speak any other language but your own native tongue - yet can now communicate with the locals in any foreign country and make it your new home out of many?
    Just admit that it’s certainly something that you would like to experience, or at the very least curious about, and are probably even secretly jealous of all those nomadic backpackers who are able to do it every single day of the year as their permanent vacation and make a desirable life out of it. While you’re monotonously wasting your life away with routines and work, waiting for the day to end, these peripatetics can’t wait for theirs to begin on whatever next exciting adventure may be or wherever life leads.
    Life’s not fair...or is it? There’s nothing special about these worldly travelers from you. In fact, anybody can take up this traveling lifestyle if they have the gumption to take action.
    So do you feel like life has become boring and meaningless? Do you need a change in pace? Do you need a reset button? Then traveling is exactly what the doctor ordered and the best remedy for those needing to reinvigorate their mind, body, and soul. The willingness to explore and experience new cultures and different people will stimulate your passion for life again.
    Now, this sounds amazing and all...but what about money, time, job, family, obligations, and other things holding you back from traveling? Yes, all of these things and many more can be overcome and will be addressed in your all-in-one practical travel guide: “Worldly Traveler.”

    That is what being a worldly traveler can do - as an international resident of the world never sitting in one place but constantly moving from one thrilling experience to another, exploring all the hidden unknowns and sightseeing the most beautiful attractions, tasting new exquisite foods while becoming culturally enriched with new perspectives, and creating unforgivable stories to tell of their adventures of their younger days to their grandkids.
    Well, what are you waiting for? You are about to miss your next opportune flight. Aboard your flight now!

    At the age of eleven, the daughter of a Sicilian sharecropper, Maria Grammatico, entered the San Carlo Institute in the mountaintop town of Erice, an orphanage run by nuns who were famous throughout Sicily for their almond pastries, but who were less adept at dealing with young girls. After ten years of hard work and harsh discipline, Maria emerged with the secrets of the nuns’ pastries hidden inside her head.   This is the story of her carefree country childhood—her Dickensian life in the orphanage with no heat, no running water, and only wood-burning ovens—and her triumphs as an entrepreneur and a world-famous pastry chef.  Bitter Almonds includes 46 of the recipes that she ‘stole’ from the nuns, committed to writing for the first time in these pages.
