Summary

“Celebrates the sweet excesses of the Austro-Hungarian Empire . . . Sachertorte, Apfelstrudel and Croissants are among the creations Rodgers demystifies.” —Publishers WeeklyTake a tour of the legendary cafés of Vienna, Budapest, and Prague where a rich tradition of masterful desserts and coffee lives on. For centuries, artists and philosophers have gathered around coffeehouse tables to complement their lively conversations with exquisite desserts. Modern cafés of this region remain loyal to this pastry tradition; though the décor has changed, it is still strudel—not lemongrass sorbet—that is served on the menu.In Kaffeehaus, Rick Rodgers celebrates 300 years of tradition with over 150 of the best classic Austro-Hungarian pastries. Using his celebrated skill as a teacher to present the recipes to bakers of all levels, Rodgers expertly shows how to create these glorious treats at home. Included are the explanations of the different kinds of batter, dough, and icing that form the foundation of this baking tradition, in addition to the many beverages—coffee or otherwise—that pair perfectly with the desserts.This revised second edition features new charts for ingredient weights and measures in addition to updated content and resource lists. One of the few books on authentic Austro-Hungarian baking written in English with recipes for American kitchens and their ingredients. Kaffeehaus beautifully captures the taste and elegance of these cafés, commemorating their culture, history, and the delectable legacy of their desserts.“Because the featured desserts (e.g., Apfelstrudel and Sachertorte) are steeped in tradition, this is as much a fascinating culinary history as it is a recipe collection.” —Library Journal

    Build Stronger Muscles Bundle, 2 in 1 Bundle: Muscle for Life and Starting StrengthIf you’re like many people, you have a hard time building muscle. You’ve tried every supplement and muscle-building workout routine that promised big, fast gains, but you’re still just as scrawny as the day you decided to start building muscle. There are a few reasons why it’s so hard to build muscle. The first thing that most people do wrong is approach it with the wrong mindset. To put things shortly, in order to build muscle like you want, you need to create a muscle-building lifestyle and really get your head in the game. At that point, muscle-building becomes something more than what you do when you go to the gym. Another misconception is that in order to build muscle and bulk up, the only thing they need to do is lift weights and that's it. If you only lift weights, chances are you would not be getting the results you were looking for. There is so much more involved in bodybuilding than lifting weights. You have to consider nutrition, supplementation, training and a whole lifestyle change.This bundle will teach you about all the essentials in order for you to build muscle mass and keep it that way. Once you have all the information you need, it would help you create a comprehensive plan you can execute. This 2 in 1 bundle includes the following audiobooks:1. Muscle for Life: The Ultimate Guide to Muscle Building, Learn Tips and Expert Advice on How to Build Quality Muscle Mass As Well As The Secrets to Strength Gains2.

    Discover the fun of making food from scratch: “You’ll want to eat everything in this book.” —People StyleWatch 
     
    Named One of the Year’s Ten Best Cookbooks by Details 
     
    How do you make cheese from pantry staples? Or create an oven smoker from scratch in just two minutes? Or make ice cream without a machine? In Home Made, Yvette van Boven shows you how, complete with step-by-step photos and illustrations and a gorgeous photo alongside every recipe.  
     
    While her recipes are rooted in a natural, from-scratch cooking philosophy, van Boven is never preachy—she believes that this way of cooking is fun and that the dishes simply taste better! Chapters include Preserving Vegetables, Pre-Dinner Drinks, Chocolate and Cookies, After a Night Out, Ice-Cream-You-Scream, Don’t Forget the Dog!, and more. Each chapter starts with a basic dish that you can make yourself, but usually don’t because you think it’s too complicated (think again!), and includes variations—basic bread becomes focaccia with olives and rosemary, or red cherry and thyme bread. Written with a friendly, irreverent voice, this book will inspire you to make every dish at home.

    Ranging from the simple to the sumptuous, here are over 200 recipes for modern Americans inspired by dishes and beverages the authors discovered in cookbooks, family journals, and notebooks of 150 to 250 years ago. Did you know that breakfast in the eighteenth century was typically a mug of beer and some mush and molasses, invariably taken on the run? That settlers enjoyed highly spiced foods and the taste of slightly spoiled meat? Or that, at first, Colonists didn’t understand how to make tea and instead stewed the tea leaves in butter, threw out what liquid collected, and munched on the leaves? These peculiar facts precede tried and tested recipes, some of which include: · Cold grapefruit soup · Tweedy family steak and kidney pie · Madras artichokes · Sour rabbit and potato dumplings · Apple-shrimp curry · Pumpkin chiffon pie · Lemon flummery · And much more Each chapter of recipes is introduced with accounts of how early Americans breakfasted, dined, drank, and entertained. The illustrations of utensils, tankards, porringers, and pots used in the early days are drawn from actual objects in major private and public collections of early Americana and make Colonial Cooking a great resource for American history enthusiasts.
