Summary

“A testament to the taste of place in all the best ways possible . . . hits all the perfect notes for anyone interested in regional cuisines” (Tracey Ryder, cofounder of Edible Communities, Inc.).  New Prairie Kitchen profiles twenty-five of the most exciting and groundbreaking chefs, farmers, and producers of artisanal goods from Nebraska, Iowa, and South Dakota. Their personal stories are interspersed with more than fifty chef-contributed recipes that range from refreshingly simple to exquisitely gourmet. Organized by season, New Prairie Kitchen will transport readers to a revitalized Midwestern heartland where traditional favorites interweave with inspiring new flavors and techniques.   Author Summer Miller introduces readers to the phenomenal talent emerging from America’s breadbasket: farms that grow asparagus thick as your thumb and tender as a strawberry; dairies that produce fresh, natural milks and cheeses; and nationally recognized restaurants that make these mouthwatering ingredients into edible art. Pioneering chefs across the prairie have taken an old-meets-new approach to their cuisine, sourcing traditional staples from local sustainable farms, and incorporating them into recipes in new and thrilling ways.     Beautiful full-color photography and terrific storytelling will lead readers through a wonderful diversity of cooking styles and recipes sure to appeal to any palate. New Prairie Kitchen will reveal a fresh take on farm-to-table cooking and inspire Americans from coast to coast to try everything the prairie has to offer.   “A passionate . . . plea for the Plains states’ inclusion in the American culinary lexicon, with great recipes to boot.” —Epicurious   “The recipes and producers here are indeed treasures, and the book is the treasure map.” —Omaha Magazine

    At the age of seventeen in a last-minute twist of fate, Laura Bradbury is sent to Burgundy, France, for a year's exchange. She arrives knowing only a smattering of French and with no idea what to expect in her first foray out of North America. With a head full of dreams and a powerful desire to please, Laura quickly adapts to Burgundian life, learning crucial skills such as the fine art of winetasting and how to savor snails. 
    However, the charming young men of the region mean Laura soon runs afoul of the rules, particularly the no-dating edict. Romantic afternoons in Dijon, early morning pain au chocolat runs, and long walks in the vineyards are wondrous but also present Laura with a conundrum: How can she keep her hosts happy while still managing to follow her heart? Follow along on Laura's journey to I'amour in My Grape Year. 
    Praise for Laura Bradbury's Grape Series: 
    "Bradbury's Grape Series feels like a series of honest and funny letters sent from a friend about her fascinating (and sometimes baffling) life in France. A beautiful read." 
    —JANICE MACLEOD, New York Times bestselling author of Paris Letters and A Paris Year 
    "Bradbury's Grape Series takes the reader on a romantic adventure into the heart, soul, and people of la belle France. Filled with delicious food, love, and laughter, Bradbury's writing proves that you have to dare to follow your heart wherever it leads you...and that sometimes we have to step outside our comfort zone to truly live." 
    —SAMANTHA VÉRANT, author of How to Make a French Family and Seven Letters from Paris

    The National Rifle Association...

    This unique reference work chronicles the interconnected histories of Britain’s NRA and the British Railways Companies.   The National Rifle Association of the United Kingdom was founded in the mid-nineteenth century and was granted a Royal Charter of Incorporation by Queen Victoria in 1890. Created for the encouragement of the Volunteer Rifle Corps and the promotion of rifle shooting throughout Great Britain, its popularity soon influenced the development of railway expansion. The London and South Western Railway Company even built unique tramways to connect the NRA’s camps and ranges.   This book sheds light on the fascinating relationship between the NRA and the British Railways Companies. Beginning in the 1860s, the NRA held annual marksmanship competition at Wimbledon Common, a site chosen for its accessibility from across the existing railway network. The NRA later established its new home at Bisley Camp in Surrey, some 35 miles outside London. The L&SWR built a spur from Brookwood Station and offered a discount on return fair to uniformed volunteers.

    Fulfilling a lifetime dream of finding a house by the sea, Pearl Lowe now brings her laid-back decorating style to coastal living with Faded Glamour by the Sea.
    Pearl Lowe's gloriously decadent yet perfectly lived-in decorating style was featured in her bestselling interiors book Faded Glamour. Now Pearl is taking us to the coast, and in Faded Glamour by the Sea we get the first glimpse of her new home – a beautiful renovation project that she and her husband, musician Danny Goffey, have created in East Sussex. Built in the 1940s for an artist whose shell sculptures are still dotted round the garden, the house and adjacent cabins have been lovingly restored by Pearl.  The house may have been a life-long dream for the couple, who have always loved the solace of water, but it has only been just over a year in the making, thanks to the inspiration Pearl has drawn from many friends who live in the area and also further afield. And so she takes us on a tour of their seaside homes. A pair of antique dealers whose love of all things French inspired them to set up their own brocante in Kent; an artist with a love of beach huts; an author who swapped London life for a clifftop house with his own writer's hut. Add to this the Malibu beachfront home of stylist Rachel Ashwell, the hippy-chic style of supermodel Helena Christensen's waterside retreat and the 'punk noir Victorian' vibe of the hotel created by friends from rock band The Libertines. In Faded Glamour by the Sea Pearl visits these properties, and as the owners tell their stories she explains how she found inspiration for this new chapter in her life.

    Colors of Nature - Culture...

    “An anthology of nature writing by people of color, providing deeply personal connections to—or disconnects from—nature.” —NPR 
     
    From African American to Asian American, indigenous to immigrant, “multiracial” to “mixed-blood,” the diversity of cultures in this world is matched only by the diversity of stories explaining our cultural origins: stories of creation and destruction, displacement and heartbreak, hope and mystery. 
     
    With writing from Jamaica Kincaid on the fallacies of national myths, Yusef Komunyakaa connecting the toxic legacy of his hometown, Bogalusa, LA, to a blind faith in capitalism, and bell hooks relating the quashing of multiculturalism to the destruction of nature that is considered “unpredictable”—among more than thirty-five other examinations of the relationship between culture and nature—this collection points toward the trouble of ignoring our cultural heritage, but also reveals how opening our eyes and our minds might provide a more livable future.

    Are you longing to know where your favourite scenes in Poldark were filmed? Or discover the secrets behind the derelict mines and perfect, unspoiled beaches? Pitkin's latest addition to the Film Locations series allows you the inside knowledge to go behind the scenes and follow in the footsteps of Ross and Demelza. Travel back in time and join them along the windswept cliffs, rugged coastline and untouched, pristine beaches. From Padstow to the Lizard peninsula, Cornwall takes centre stage, providing the breath-taking backdrop that brings the series to life.
    The latest awarding-winning adaptation of Winston Graham's Poldark, produced by the BBC, has captured the hearts of millions of viewers worldwide. As the third series returns to our screens this summer, and with a forth series underway, tourists from all over the globe are flocking to the deepest corners of the UK's southwestern tip. Over the last three years the series has brought the region's rich heritage back to life, with tales of smugglers, shipwrecks and the secrets of the mines gripping viewer's imaginations.
    Visit the Poldark family mines at Agnes Head or Levant Mine, a World Heritage Site. Gallop along the clifftops of Chapel Porth, and learn of famous shipwrecks at Gunwalloe. If it's the glistening, azur waters you're after, don't miss Holywell Bay, Cornwall's largest stretch of coastline, which becomes the Warleggans private beach in series two.
    Cornwall has been an inspiration for writer's, film directors and artists alike for centuries, and Eleanor Tomlinson (Demelza) sums up its magic. "So much of the piece came alive when we were filming in Cornwall and everyone found their character in the outdoors."
    Britain's best kept secret is yours to enjoy.
