Summary

While Homer's existence as a historical person is still a topic of debate, the writings attributed to the name have made their mark not only on Greek history and literature, but upon western civilization itself. Homer's epic poems, The Iliad and The Odyssey, laid the foundation upon which Ancient Greece developed not only its culture, but its societal values, religious beliefs, and practice of warfare as well.

This publication features the Samuel Butler translation, and while it strays from the poetic style reproduced by more well known translators like Robert Fagles and Robert Fitzgerald, the vision of the epics as if they were prose found in modern novels take their best form under Butler's most capable hand.

    The classic collection of heirloom recipes featuring more than one hundred authentic dishes from New Mexico. Traditional New Mexican cuisine isn’t the same as Mexican or Tex-Mex—instead, it’s a unique fusion of various Native American, Mexican, Spanish, European, and even North American cowboy chuckwagon foods and cooking techniques. The more than one hundred authentic New Mexican dishes in Historic Cookery take you back to the old ways of preparing food, slow-cooked with flavor and just the right finishing touch. The chile sauces and meat, poultry, fish, cheese, egg, salad, soup, bread, sandwich, dessert, pastry, beverage, and other recipes will have you cooking just like your abuela. The first known published cookbook to focus on the distinctive dishes of this Southwestern state, Historic Cookery was written by Fabiola Cabeza de Baca Gilbert—a multilingual nutritionist who is also noted for inventing the U-shaped fried taco shell.

    From the public television host, a tour of the US’s oldest and greatest dining spots—with “delightful tales, delicious recipes, and hundreds of photographs” (Ted Allen, host of Food Network’s Chopped). 
     
    Come along on a pilgrimage to some of the oldest, most historic restaurants in America. Each is special not only for its longevity but also for its historic significance, interesting stories, and, of course, wonderful food. The oldest Japanese restaurant in the country is profiled, along with stagecoach stops, elegant eateries, barbecue joints, hamburger shops, cafes, bars and grills, and two dueling restaurants that both claim to have invented the French dip sandwich. 
     
    The bestselling author and host/producer of Barbecue America shares the charm, history, and appeal that made these establishments, some as many as three hundred years old, successful. Each profile contains a famous recipe, the history of the restaurant, a look at the restaurant today, descriptions of some of its signature dishes, fun facts that make each place unique, and beautiful photos. It’s all you need for an armchair tour of one hundred restaurants that have made America great. 
     
    “Browne spent three years traveling more than 46,000 miles to profile the 100 restaurants, inns, taverns and public houses he selected as being the most historic, most interesting and most successful.” —Orlando Sentinel 
     
    “It is Browne’s exploration of the history behind each place that I found most interesting…The White Horse Tavern gave him the Beef Wellington recipe. Peter Luger, the legendary Brooklyn Steakhouse, shared one for German Fried Potatoes and Katz’s Delicatessen in New York City offered Katz’s Noodle Kugel. And, Ferrara in Little Italy in New York City parted with its cannoli recipe.” —Sioux City Journal 
     
    “Ask any chef: It’s not easy keeping a restaurant alive for a week, let alone a year or a decade. So what does it take to last a century? After five years of criss-crossing the country and gobbling up regional specialties from chowder to chili, Rick Browne reveals the answer to that question.” —Ted Allen, host of Food Network’s Chopped

    The biography of Richard Cadbury, a son of one of the chocolate industry’s founding families, who helped grow the business during the Victorian era. 
     
    In 1824, John Cadbury opened a grocer’s shop in Bull Street in Birmingham and started to sell tea, coffee, and drinking chocolate alongside everything else. In 1831, he opened a factory and started to manufacture his own product, and by 1842 the company was selling almost thirty different types of drinking chocolate and cocoa. 
     
    In 1861, the now floundering firm was taken over by two of his sons, Richard and George, who turned things around and continued to grow the company into the organization known around the world today. The Life of Richard Cadbury is a brand-new biography that focuses on the lesser known of the brothers, looking at the history and background behind the socialist, philanthropist, and chocolatier.
