    Germany
    might be the most misunderstood wine country on the planet. Hobbled by an
    idiotic wine law, labelling conventions that are nothing but quixotic to
    non-German speakers and still settled with a residual Liebfraumilch image,
    German wine is confusing, even for experts. But despite this baggage Germany
    today is a vibrant, creative and progressive wine country at the very heart of
    Europe. Wine is made in thirteen regions across four degrees of latitude. Anne
    Krebiehl MW, an acknowledged expert on German wine, showcases the new Germany
    (with far more clean-cut labelling) and gets rid of a few misconceptions and
    prejudices in the process.The wines of Germany explains Germany’s intrinsic
    regionality and puts the country into context in terms of its climate and
    geography. Krebiehl explains why rivers and slopes are so important to German
    viticulture and puts it in an economic context. She analyses Germany’s
    unusually fragmented producer base and its challenging climate and vintage
    variation before examining in detail the wines of today’s German regions.

    A literary ode to peace, presence, and fulfillment inspired by a walk taken with a most surprising creature. 
     
    "The demon of speed is often associated with forgetting, with avoidance . . . and slowness with memory and confronting," observes Milan Kundera in his novel Slowness. With that purpose in mind-a search for slowness and tranquility, Andy Merrifield sets out on a journey of the soul with a friend's donkey, Gribouille, to walk amid the ruins and spectacular vistas of southern France's Haute-Auvergne.  
     
    As Merrifield contemplates literature, science, truth, and beauty amid the French countryside, Gribouille surprises him with his subtle wisdom, reminding him time and again that enlightenment is all around us if we but seek it.

    A glorious celebration of the food and people of Iran, featuring stories from home kitchens and more than 80 delicious, modern recipes. 
     
    "This is so much more than a compilation of recipes, gorgeous though they themselves are. This is a book that tells a story, both cultural and personal, and her voice is as engaging as her food." --Nigella Lawson 
     
    "Barberries, fresh herbs, date molasses, dried limes, saffron; Yasmin's Persian pantry staples are a roll call of my favourite ingredients. Her recipes are a mouthwatering showcase of a beautiful country." --Yotam Ottolenghi 
     
    "Not just a great cookbook but a book full of stories – a love letter to Iran and its people." --Diana Henry 
     
    Armed with little more than a notebook and a bottle of pomegranate molasses, and fueled by memories of her family's farm in the lush seaside province of Gilan, British-Iranian cook Yasmin Khan traversed Iran in search of the most delicious recipes for this Persian cookbook.  
     
    Her quest took her from the snowy mountains of Tabriz to the cosmopolitan cafés of Tehran and the pomegranate orchards of Isfahan, where she was welcomed into the homes of artists, farmers, electricians, and teachers. Through her travels, she gained a unique insight into the culinary secrets of the Persian kitchen, and the lives of ordinary Iranians today.  
     
    In The Saffron Tales, Yasmin weaves together a tapestry of stories from Iranian home kitchens with exclusive photography and fragrant, modern recipes that are rooted in the rich tradition of Persian cooking. All fully accessible for the home cook, Yasmin's recipes range from the inimitable fesenjoon (chicken with walnuts and pomegranates) to kofte berenji (lamb meatballs stuffed with prunes and barberries) and ghalyieh maygoo (shrimp, coriander, and tamarind stew). She also offers a wealth of vegetarian dishes, including tahcheen (baked saffron and eggplant rice) and domaj (mixed herb, flatbread, and feta salad), as well as sumptuous desserts such as rose and almond cake, and sour cherry and dark chocolate cookies.  
     
    With stunning photography from all corners of Iran and gorgeous recipe images, this lavish cookbook rejoices in the land, life, flavors, and food of an enigmatic and beautiful country.

    Ay Cuba! - A Socio-Erotic Journey

    A rare and intimate glimpse at life in Cuba at the end of the twentieth century   For NPR commentator Andrei Codrescu, reporting from Cuba on the eve of Pope John Paul II’s 1998 visit was an opportunity to understand the realities of life in a country that has long been the subject of stereotypes and misconceptions. Following the collapse of the Soviet Union, Cuba was the last place to witness a “laboratory of pre-post-communism,” as it toed the line between its socialist past and its uncertain future.   On the streets of Havana and the beaches of Santiago de Cuba, Codrescu met people from all walks of life—from prostitutes and fortunetellers to bureaucrats and writers—eager to share their stories. Uncensored and compassionate, his interviews reveal a world where destruction and beauty, poverty and pride exist side by side. Traveling with photographer David Graham, whose powerful images illustrate the energy pulsing through everyday life in Cuba, Codrescu captures the humanity of a nation that is lost when it’s reduced to a political symbol. With the United States resuming relations with Cuba for the first time in decades, Ay,Cuba! is more relevant now than ever before.
