    Explore the fine cider movement and the people and producers behind it.
    "Felix is one of those heroes of local produce and producers, in his case of what I call true ciders. These ciders (and perrys) bear no relation in terms of provenance, endeavour, cost, landscape or heritage to the commercial ciders that compete for the mass market. The world is logistics and marketing, well for those big companies maybe, for Felix it's enthusiasm, effort and the lovely work of the local, "I can see the orchard from here", producers. So here's a book that opens the door to the past and, most importantly, the future." – Trevor Gulliver, Co-founder of St John, London
    Think you know about cider? Well think again. It's not about the swill you guzzled as a student, or the so-called "flavoured ciders" that don't actually contain any apples. The contemporary cider scene is an exciting place to spend some time, as passionate makers celebrate tradition and terroir while also embracing seasonality, innovation, and experimentation to produce characterful drinks that are quite remarkable. Fine Cider looks at this modern cider movement, charting its beginnings and introducing some of the key players in fine-cider making, as well as guiding you through the characteristics of different apple varieties, the cider-producing regions around the world, the processes and techniques of cider production, how cider is an exceptional partner with food and, of course, recommending ciders you need to try.

    This is a 2-book combo, which has the following titles: 
      
      
    Book 1: Since you landed on this page, you have probably been wondering what intermittent fasting is, or why so many people have used this lifestyle to become healthier. Well… you’re at the right place, because this book will tell you all about that! 
    Topics in this book include trends, the choice between a low-carb and a low-fat diet, exercising during periods of fasting, brain detoxing methods, junk food addictions and why it’s so irresistible, portion control, and lots, lots, lots more. 
    Do yourself a favor and learn about all these health facts, so that you, too, can enjoy the benefits of these great truths. 
      
      
      
      
    Book 2: What are the real benefits of intermittent fasting? 
      
    The answer might surprise you, as it extends far beyond the biological aspects of allowing your intestines to reboot. There is a psychological factor that helps people lose weight faster too. Another aspect is clean eating, which is a concept that helps people boost their nutrition and become healthier in general. 
      
    Moreover, everyone is different and will, for this reason, experience the effects of intermittent fasting differently. 
      
    If you’re curious about these effects and other variables that make intermittent fasting such a promising method, then I encourage you to take a look at this book now.

    Memories of a Farm Kitchen

    An illustrated memoir and cookery by an award-winning artist captures country life in America’s Midwest in the early twentieth century.   In the farm home of America’s past, the hearth of the home—the kitchen—represented the warmth and well-being of the family that met daily to enjoy hearty, homemade food. Award-winning artist Bob Artley evokes this ideal in this beautiful homage to the traditional Midwestern farm kitchen. Filled with heirloom family recipes and cozy memories and accompanied by Artley’s signature pen-and-ink drawings and full-color illustrations, this memoir provides a nostalgic and affectionate look at rural life, family, and food from a simpler time. Peppered with twenty-eight traditional family recipes Dorothy Harchanko gathered from farm wives of the era—including entries for Apple Pie, Carrot Jam, and Ice Box Cookies—the chapters provide a description of the farm kitchen; discuss the family larder, cellar, and attic; and examine the many ways in which the kitchen served as the center of the farm family’s universe. Used as a medical dispensary, nursery, laundry room, scriptorium, and, of course, gathering place to eat, the kitchen of Artley’s past now gives him the space to tell his unique story in words, with food, and through his unforgettable artwork.   Praise for Once Upon a Farm:   “Artley’s illustrations have a homespun feel reminiscent of Norman Rockwell. His writing is conversational and informative, like one neighbor talking to another, or a grandfather sharing history and lost practical skills with his grandchildren.” —Foreword Reviews “This is a beautiful book, that progresses through the seasons, bringing life to an almost forgotten time.” —School Library Journal
