    We all know our sweets. We all remember sweets – objects of pure delight and the endless cause of squabbles, fights even, hoarding and swapping; a chance to gorge, suck, crunch and chew. But they’re by no means just a nostalgic thing of days past, and it’s not only children who love and devour sweets – gobstoppers, bulls eyes, licorice, seaside rock, bubble gum and the like; grown-ups of all ages are partial to a good humbug, or a lemon sherbet or two – in the car, (annoyingly) at the cinema or while out walking – wherever and whenever, the sweet is there, the sweet delivers and the sweet rarely disappoints.  Sweets then are ubiquitous and enduring; they cross age, culture and gender boundaries and they have been around, it seems, forever. This book tells the story of sweets from their primitive beginnings to their place today as a billion pound commodity with its sophisticated, seductive packaging and sales, advertising and marketing. It explores the people’s favorites, past and present; but there is also a dark side to sweets – and this book does not shy away from the deleterious effect on health as manifested in obesity, tooth decay and diabetes. It delves into sweet and candy shops in supermarkets and markets, retro sweet shops, fudge makers, vintage sweets online, sweet manufacturing, chocolate, the grey line between sweets and ‘medicines’ ancient and modern. It goes round the world sucking, licking and crunching sweets from different countries and cultures and it examines how immigrants from all nations have changed our own sweet world.

    Three hundred recipes for rich, satisfying stews from around the world—from a James Beard Cookbook of the Year Award winner. 
     
    The tradition of stew-making is as old as the invention of the first pot, so it’s only natural that a piping-hot, rib-sticking stew is comforting in a very primal sort of way. In The Best Stews in the World, renowned cooking teacher Cliff Wright takes us on a culinary voyage around the world to discover the favorite comfort foods of nearly fifty countries. These three hundred recipes are the real deal: classic home food complete with culinary pedigrees. Here you can find authentic versions of: 
     
    *Swedish Meatball Stew *Ossobuco alla Milanese *African Groundnut Stew *Irish Stew *Cuban Ropa Vieja *Coq au Vin *Waterzooi *Maine Lobster Stew *Spicy Indian Vegetable Stew *Catalonian Lentil Stew *Finnish Salmon Stew *and many more  
     
    The Best Stews in the World is organized by each recipe’s predominant ingredient: beef; veal; pork; lamb; poultry, goat, and rabbit; mixed meats; fish and shellfish; vegetables; and mixed meats. The recipes are easy to follow, the techniques are straightforward, the narrative is rich with the history and tradition of each stew, and, most important, the rewards are plentiful and satisfying.

    Beer is and has always been more than an intoxicating beverage. Its invention 13,000 years ago was one of the fundamental motivations for the domestication of grains around the world. In early states, the control over the technological knowledge and resources to produce beer contributed to social hierarchies. Beer even likely provided the capital to motivate laborers to construct the ancient pyramids and other large-scale public works. Beer is a social lubricant that brings people together and, in many Indigenous societies both past and present, is a gift connecting people to their ancestors. The same innovations pioneered by ancient brewers are transforming the types of ingredients and flavors produced by the global craft beer industry.In Beer, archaeologist John W. Arthur takes listeners on an exciting global journey to explore the origins, development, and recipes of ancient beer. This unique book focuses on past and present non-industrial beers, highlighting their significance in peoples' lives through four themes: innovating new technologies, ensuring health and well-being, building economic and political statuses, and imbuing life with ritual and religious connections. As this book amply illustrates, beer has shaped our world in remarkable ways for the past 13,000 years.
