    “A colorful culinary journey . . . This book explores what Armenian cuisine looks like today in a very authentic and beautiful way.” —Marcus Samuelsson, award-winning chef and restaurateur   This cookbook not only reveals how to make the ubiquitous and doable flatbread lavash, the UNESCO-recognized bread of Armenia, but also shares more than sixty recipes of what to eat with it, from soups and salads to hearty stews paired with lots of fresh herbs. Stunning photography and essays provide an insider’s look at Armenia, a small but fascinating country comprising dramatic mountains, sun-drenched fields, and welcoming people. With influences from the Middle East and the Mediterranean as well as from Russia, the food of Armenia is the next cuisine to explore for people who want to dig deeper into the traditions formed at the crossroads between the East and West.  “An incredibly complete book of foods from Armenia, part cookbook, part coffee-table photo journal, and part history book. The culinary culture of Armenia is ancient, profound, and a doorway to understanding the people and culture of that country—and this book and John Lee’s incredible photos truly do justice to this culinary tradition.” —Serj Tankian, poet, visual artist, activist, composer, and lead vocalist for System of a Down  “At last, Armenian food gets its due! Lavash takes us on a captivating journey through Armenia, sharing stories of this ancient land’s history and people, along with the secrets of its remarkable cuisine. The flatbread recipes alone are worth the price of the book, but there’s so much more revealed here—piquant salads, whole-grain porridges, and soothing soups and stews.” —Darra Goldstein, founding editor of Gastronomica: The Journal of Food and Culture

    A delicious and delightful narrative history of pie in AmericaFrom pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving to apple pie on the Fourth of July, nearly every American shares a certain nostalgia for a simple circle of crust and filling. But for centuries, pie has been a malleable icon, equally enjoyed at the table and coopted for social and political purposes. After all, it was a slice of cherry pie denied at the Woolworth’s lunch counter that ignited a wave of anti-segregation protests across the South during the civil rights movement. Molasses pie, a Southern favorite, captures the legacies of racial trauma and oppression passed down from America’s history of slavery, and Jell-O pie exemplifies the pressures and contradictions of gender roles in an evolving modern society. We all know the warm comfort of the so-called all-American apple pie … but just how did pie become the symbol of a nation?In Sweet Land of Liberty: A History of America in 11 Pies, food writer Rossi Anastopoulo cracks open our relationship to pie with wit and good humor. She traces the pies woven into our history, following the evolution of our country across centuries of innovation and change and examining how America’s relationship with this iconic dessert impacted culture across eras—and vice versa. With corresponding recipes for each chapter, Sweet Land of Liberty is an entertaining, informative, and utterly charming food history for bakers, dessert lovers, and history aficionados alike. Ultimately, the story of pie is the story of America itself, and it’s time to dig in.
