Summary

“Fascinating. Detailed, well-written, and controversial, Lucand’s history of France and its wine during the Nazi Occupation is an unexpected treat.” —The Wine Economist 
 
During the Second World War, French wine was hardly a trivial product. Indeed, following the Fall of France, it proved to be one of the most valuable French commodities in the eyes of the Nazi leaders. In 1940, “Weinführer” (official delegates and wine experts appointed by Berlin), were sent to all the wine regions of France to coordinate the most intense looting that the country had ever seen. 
 
Alongside the very ambiguous relationship of the Vichy Regime and the collaboration of many French professionals with the occupiers, this immense program of wine collection was a drama that many would prefer to forget. Now, more than seventy years after the end of the conflict, the time has come to tell the story of what really happened. 
 
Following a meticulous investigation and relying exclusively on previously unpublished sources, Christophe Lucand reveals the history of the world of French wine that was subjected to the tests of war, occupation and of all the compromises this entails. 
 
“The author has walked the line with sensitivity and provided a balanced review of this very painful time for French winemakers.” —Firetrench

    “From sandwich slices to artisan multi-grain loaves, Roberts gives you guidelines and recipes for creating wheatless wonders with your bread machine.” —Gluten Free & More   Bread may be the staff of life, but if it contains gluten it can trigger an allergic reaction, and even provoke serious digestive disorders like celiac disease. Consumers who love bread but must avoid gluten have long been at the mercy of mediocre products and high prices. With this timely cookbook, they can have their bread and eat it, too. Acclaimed author Analise Roberts developed these simple, foolproof recipes for the Zojirushi bread machine. Roberts’ outstanding recipes range from simple and satisfying Basic Sandwich Bread to complex and scrumptious Golden Italian Bread with Raisins and Fennel. She also offers ethnic breads like Challah and Babka and seasonal delights such as the irresistible Holiday Breakfast Bread. Included are loaves, like Sundried Tomato Roasted Garlic Bread, that contain no eggs or dairy products.  Praise for Annalise G. Roberts and Gluten-Free Baking Classics   “[Roberts’s] kitchen tested recipes make her baked goods lighter and fluffier than the rest.” —Calgary Herald   “This remarkable cookbook contains mouthwatering recipes, the directions are easy to follow, and the hints are a welcome extra bonus.” —Elaine Monarch, executive director, Celiac Disease Foundation   “We were captivated by these perfect chocolate chip cookies, [with their] crisp yet yielding texture, and we dare anyone to detect they weren’t made with traditional wheat flour . . . [the] rich but light . . . cake loses nothing from the absence of white flour.” —Gourmet
