    There is no time for boredom at the restaurant Tickets, where engagement and good company are the order of the day. Indeed, fun has been the key ingredient in the restaurant’s cuisine since Albert Adrià opened its doors in 2011 with the Iglesias brothers, Pedro, Borja and Juan Carlos. It has become a benchmark for Barcelona’s restaurant scene ever since and its recipes have clearly evolved, though without losing any of their freshness or magic. Today the dishes at Tickets have fully transcended the concept of the tapa. So, this is not a tapas book!Albert Adrià invites us once again to walk through the doors of Tickets, where diners become actors in a film, performers in a vaudeville variety show or in a chorus line. Strawberry tree with elderflower and kimchi, Porex with Kalix caviar, Prawns in frozen salt, Saffron sponge with bread soup, Cannibal chicken with cassava bone and the oyster dishes, like Grilled oyster with black chanterelle tea, are just a sample of the nearly 100 recipes disclosed in this book.

    Part culinary memoir and part travelogue, Carole Bumpus gathered this compilation of intimate interviews, conversations, stories, and traditional family recipes (cuisine pauvre) in the kitchens of French families as she traveled throughout the countryside. Travel with her through Champagne caves/wineries and historic cathedrals, local farmers’ markets, ancient potters’ guilds, and restaurant kitchens with wood-fire ovens. Learn how to make homemade Spinach-stuffed Tortellini with Bolognaise Sauce from the Champagne region, Crêpes and Watercress-stuffed Ravioli from the Lorraine, and Baekeofe and Kugelhopf from the Alsace. “Go blind” from the family stock of Eau de Vie liqueur and be treated to tales of foraging for snails for the infamous and now extinct Escargots Festival. And, on a somber note, listen to accounts of families forced from their communities during the German occupation of WWII in the Alsace and Lorraine, only to continue to struggle for survival after finally making their way home.
    
    
    
    This book is a compilation of stories about making ends meet; about people being grateful for all they had, even when they had almost nothing; about the sharing of family jokes and laughter; and about family trials and triumphs. This book is about people savoring the life they have been given.

    When it was first published in 1934, Erna Fergusson's Mexican Cookbook made authentic Mexican recipes accessible to cooks nationwide--including celebrated favorites such as enchiladas, chile rellenos, and carne adovada, as well as the simple, rustic foods traditionally prepared and served in New Mexican homes. 
    Inspired by the delight and enthusiasm with which visitors to the Southwest partook of the region's cuisine, this popular cookbook remains an enduring tribute to the ambience and spirit of territorial New Mexico.
