    The French Cook: Sauces

    From the award-winning food writer and author of Mashed, a step-by-step, French cooking class on sauces with an array of recipes to create. This is the first in a series of French cookbooks that will simplify and demystify French cuisine for all of those who love it and would like to bring it home to their American kitchens without traveling outside their homes. Here Holly Herrick creates a French cooking course all about sauces, filled with beautiful how-to photography and step-by-step techniques that will have you making sauces like a pro. The book focuses on the five mother sauces of French cuisine: béchamel, veloutés, hollandaise, espagnol and brown sauces, and les sauces tomates. In addition, Herrick devotes chapters to fonds, or stocks, the base of so many sauces, and mayonnaises, a simple, versatile sauce so widely used in classical French cuisine. In addition to the sauces, the book integrates main course ingredients, such as steak or roasted chicken, something more than to be dressed with a sauce, but also something that helped to shape the sauce itself. With myriad variations and derivatives on each basic sauce, this book can transform your next meal into a veritable French feast.“A balanced selection of recipes for sauce spinoffs and the entrees they are intended for. Standouts include a richer, simpler alternative to bouillabaisse (Lobster Tail, Littleneck Clams and Sea Scallops With a Saffron, Chive, and Butter Béchamel Sauce). Also notable is Veal and Pork Meatballs in a Velouté Sauce, in which herbes de Provence, Dijon mustard and chopped shallots combine to produce what might be described as Swedish Meatballs on Steroids.”—Wall Street Journal

    In his classic A Geography of Oysters, Rowan Jacobsen forever changed the way America talks about its best bivalve. Now he does the same for our favorite fruit, showing us that there is indeed life beyond Red Delicious-and even Honeycrisp. While supermarkets limit their offerings to a few waxy options, apple trees with lives spanning human generations are producing characterful varieties-and now they are in the midst of a rediscovery. From heirlooms to new designer breeds, a delicious diversity of apples is out there for the eating. 
     
    Apples have strong personalities, ranging from crabby to wholesome. The Black Oxford apple is actually purple, and looks like a plum. The Knobbed Russet looks like the love child of a toad and a potato. (But don't be fooled by its looks.) The D'Arcy Spice leaves a hint of allspice on the tongue. Cut Hidden Rose open and its inner secret is revealed.  
     
    With more than 150 art-quality color photographs, Apples of Uncommon Character shows us the fruit in all its glory. Jacobsen collected specimens both common and rare from all over North America, selecting 120 to feature, including the best varieties for eating, baking, and hard-cider making. Each is accompanied by a photograph, history, lore, and a list of characteristics. The book also includes 20 recipes, savory and sweet, resources for buying and growing, and a guide to the best apple festivals. It's a must-have for every foodie.

    This book is an important book for all cancer and non- cancer patients looking for solution and also for those who knows the importance of avoiding what could trigger lung cancer in them, as it has uncovered the holy grail those who want to optimize their chances for cure have been seeking. This book is filled with important information for everyone, whether struggling with cancer or not.Lung tumour causes mutations in cells. Typically, your body programs cells to die at a particular stage in their life cycle to avoid overgrowth. Malignancy overrides this training, leading to cells overdevelopment and multiplying when they shouldn't; the growth of cells leads to the introduction of tumours and the harmful effects of cancer. In lung cancer, this design of cell overgrowth occurs in the lungs (essential organs for breathing and gas exchange); doctors typically diagnose two lung cancer types, small cell, and non-small cell, depending on how they appear under a microscope. One is much more likely to have non-small cell lung malignancy than a low cell.However, anyone taking tobacco and constant contact with smoke can boost the likelihood of developing lungs tumour. Lungs cancer can also be improved if one has a brief history of contact with inhaled chemicals or other poisons; even if this contact with chemicals and other toxins was in the past, it might cause changes in lung cells that lead to tumour.This book will walk you through what to do to avoid lung cancer and also what to do to get better if you have lung cancer.

    “Almost as much guide book as it is cookbook . . . the authors dive into the ingredients unique to Provencal cuisine and the history of the region.” —Kitchn   Provence, the beautiful region that sits at the scenic crossroads of southern France, the Italian Alps, and the Mediterranean, has long been an area of historical import and distinct culture. But above all else, it is known as a producer of some of the finest food and wine France has to offer, with a cuisine that emphasizes healthful ingredients such as olive oil, fresh vegetables, Mediterranean seafood, as well as dry, aromatic rosé.  Provence Food and Wine is one of the only English-language books available on the cuisine, wine, and sights of this stunning Mediterranean enclave on the southern coast of France. Packed with 47 traditional Provencal recipes, all of which emphasize the incredibly popular and healthy Mediterranean diet, Provence Food and Wine also provides detailed information on regional wines, most notably rosé. This is the most famous wine of Provence and has made great strides in the US. Readers will be able to learn about pairing between wine and food, as Viktorija Todorovska and François Millo expertly explain what to look for and where to get these wines outside of Europe.   Full-color photography shows off all of these dishes, as well as the dazzling sights of the region's lush interior, sparkling coastline, and breathtaking vistas. In Provence Food and Wine, Todorovska and Millo “bring the joie de vivre of this region right to your fingertips, capturing its allure with simplicity and heart” (One for the Table).
