Summary

Lost Spring: How We Cocktailed Through Crisis culls together more than 50 different bartenders and sommeliers from Nashville and beyond to discuss what it has been like to go from a natural disaster, the devastating tornado that ripped through the city in early March, decimating businesses and taking the lives of two local bartenders, to a global pandemic that shut down the restaurant and bar business for months. The book will be used to raise funds for those affected by the tornado in Middle Tennessee, and will also raise money for local service industry worker funds. There are cocktail recipes, techniques for making cordials, and plenty of insight from local mavericks of the mixology scene in Nashville. Bartenders discuss what they’ve missed about being behind the bar, what has changed about their approach to the profession, all while dispensing plenty of recommendations for music and entertainment during quarantine (the book has its own spotify playlist curated by local DJ and mixologist Patrick Goodspeed). Compiled by local writer and bartender Mike Wolf, author of Garden to Glass, this book aims to catch a unique moment in time when the world seemed to spin out of control and come to a halt all at the same time. Available initially as an ebook in late August 2020, and out in May 2021 from Turner Publishing.

    Cooking food is one of the activities that makes humanity unique. It’s not just about what tastes good: advances in cooking technology have been a constant part of our progress, from the ability to control fire to the emergence of agriculture to modern science’s understanding of what happens at a molecular level when we apply heat to food. Mastering new ways of feeding ourselves has resulted in leaps in longevity and explosions in population—and the potential of cooking science is still largely untapped.In Cook, Taste, Learn, the food scientist and best-selling author Guy Crosby offers a lively tour of the history and science behind the art of cooking, with a focus on achieving a healthy daily diet. He traces the evolution of cooking from its earliest origins, recounting the innovations that have unraveled the mysteries of health and taste. Crosby explains why both home cooks and professional chefs should learn how to apply cooking science, arguing that we can improve the nutritional quality and gastronomic delight of everyday eating. Science-driven changes in the way we cook can help reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases and enhance our quality of life. The book features accessible explanations of complex topics as well as a selection of recipes that illustrate scientific principles. Cook, Taste, Learn reveals the possibilities for transforming cooking from a craft into the perfect blend of art and science.
