Summary

This illustrated woodworking guide combines traditional techniques with contemporary design for step-by-step projects and finishing techniques. 
 
Heirloom Wood is a love letter to the lasting beauty of wood through simple woodworking projects. Max Bainbridge teaches you how to identify wood types, source timber, and set up a basic toolbox, then offers step-by-step carving and cutting techniques for making your own pieces.  
 
With little experience and very few tools, you’ll learn to create hand-carved bowls, cutting boards, spoons, knives, and spatulas, perfect for adding a touch of the handmade to your home. With further advice on finishing your projects—how to sand, ebonize, scorch, and texture the surfaces, as well as wax and oil your new kitchen creations—Heirloom Wood shows you how to imbue each object with a tangible history visible through the maker’s mark.  
 
With beautiful photography and clear how-to instruction, Heirloom Wood gives you everything you need to create timeless kitchen keepsakes to be passed down from generation to generation.

    From the celebrated California restaurant comes a stunningly photographed cookbook showcasing seasonal ingredients, local vintners, fishermen, and farmers. 
     
    Chef Philip Wojtowicz, baker Michelle Wojtowicz, and host Michael Gilson escaped the Los Angeles food scene to create their version of the ideal restaurant, nestled in the heart of some of the most beautiful country in the world on the Pacific Coast. This is simple, wood-fired American cooking at its best, executed in a way that lets the ingredients—seasonal and often locally produced—shine. Weekend brunches feature thick, nine-grain pancakes and savory breakfast pizza topped with crisp bacon, fresh herbs, and pasture-raised eggs. At night, Phil offers classics like Grilled Prime Rib Steak with Red Wine Sauce along with twists on traditional favorites like Venison Osso Buco or Rockfish Scampi. And every meal should end with one of Michelle’s great desserts, whether it’s a homemade Peppermint Ice Cream Sundae or Hazelnut Flan with Roasted Cherries. 
     
    But this is more than a cookbook; it’s a yearlong glimpse into what it’s really like to live in Big Sur, introducing the people and places that make the restaurant’s renowned food possible, including Wayne Hyland, hunter and forager, Jamie Collins, organic row cropper, and Gary Pisoni, the eccentric vintner who supplies some of the restaurant’s most beloved wine. With its outstanding photography, lively profiles, and dozens of must-make recipes, this book helps bring the experience of Big Sur home. 
     
    “The Big Sur Bakery Cookbook tells the compelling story of the people and community that created that rare beauty: a great restaurant with soul.” —David Kinch, chef/owner of Manresa Restaurant

    Exploits and Triumphs in Europe...

    Paul Morphy, born in New Orleans in 1837, was considered the greatest chess player of his era. He was a child prodigy who learned playing chess simply by watching family members play, and when he was only 9 years old, he was hailed as the best chess player in New Orleans. This book describes Morphy's trip to Europe, i.e., England and France, where he wanted to play the European Champion Staunton, a match that never came about as the correspondence included in this book shows. He did play - and beat - virtually every other strong player in Europe though, and tales of these matches and people make up a large part of this book. After his triumphs in Europe, Paul Morphy was considerd the unofficial World Chess Champion, as official championship tournaments were only held from 1886. Morphy retired from chess in 1859 in order to devote himself to his law practice. He died from a stroke in 1884. (Summary by Availle)
