    Healthy eating is within everyone’s reach in this simple guide to buying, preparing, and cooking one hundred delicious and nutritious foods. Packed full of recipes, information, and guidance, 100 Foods You Should be Eating is a book for anyone who wants to take a simpler approach to health and good food. It has been written with one thing in mind: to make us think differently about the food we buy and eat. Award-winning author of The Health Delusion, Glen Matten, gives us a straight-talking take on the best way to buy, prepare, and cook the best ingredients—and it really is easy. The details of each of the one hundred foods cover all the information you need, including what it is, health benefits, the best way to buy, cook, and store it, and a simple recipe or serving suggestion. New diets appear all the time with promises for drastic weight loss and better health, while the supermarket shelves are full of products that have bits put in, bits taken out, “healthy” ranges, low-fat alternatives and fortified foods—not to mention exotic new “health” ingredients. The fact is that eating good nutritious food doesn’t have to be this complicated. Organized into eight chapters that reflect the way we eat (Breakfast, The Munchies, Lunch on the Go, Strapped for Cash, Summer Living, Friends Round, Fast Food, Lazy Sundays, Kids, and Desserts and Drinks) the book is extremely easy to use and includes photographs of recipes as well as ingredients.“If you think that healthy eating is all about eating “rabbit food,” foods that are expensive and foods that are difficult and time-consuming to prepare, then this book will turn everything you think you know about healthy living on its head…. Glen proves that healthy food doesn’t mean food that is tasteless, dull and bland.”—Norwich Evening News

    Italian recipes from the Food Network star that show “you don’t need expensive ingredients or complicated methods to produce delicious food” (The Miami Herald).   In addition to appearances on Chopped and Bravo’s Top Chef, Scott Conant is known for founding Scarpetta—cited on such lists as Esquire’s “Best New Restaurants in America.” The Manhattan eatery, with its Milan-meets-Tuscany style, expanded to Miami, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Toronto—and now this gorgeously illustrated cookbook gives you 125 of the restaurant’s signature dishes.   Creamy Polenta with Fricassee of Truffled Mushrooms, Spaghetti with Tomato and Basil, Fennel-Dusted Black Cod—not only will you find recipes like these, you’ll also learn how to master techniques and gain a deeper understanding of the art of cooking, rather than merely following a set of steps. And as a bonus, you’ll find sidebars about everything from ingredient shopping to tips on entertaining at home.   “Rich in words and flavor, this is a must-have for anyone who wants to know how to cook with passion and taste.” —Marcus Samuelsson, James Beard Award–winning chef

    In 1940, France fell to the Nazis and almost immediately the German army began a campaign of pillaging one of the assets the French hold most dear: their wine. Like others in the French Resistance, winemakers mobilized to oppose their occupiers, but the tale of their extraordinary efforts has remained largely unknown—until now. This is the thrilling and harrowing story of the French wine producers who undertook ingenious, daring measures to save their cherished crops and bottles as the Germans closed in on them. Wine and War illuminates a compelling, little-known chapter of history, and stands as a tribute to those extraordinary individuals who waged a battle that, in a very real way, saved the spirit of France.
