Summary

Unravel the history, sample the flavours, and experience the amazing versatility of the world's favourite brew and all its health-giving properties.

Tea expert Timothy d'Offay starts with the very basics with a section on water and tea tools to make brewing easier. Then, as well as traditional ways of making tea, he explores new brewing methods such as 'Flow Brew', which involves brewing one tea through another to create an infusion, and 'Ambient Tea', a way of making tea pair better with food. There is a 'Cold Brew' chapter as well as one for delicious sparkling teas, called 'Kitchen Colas', which you can make in the comfort of your own home with tea and a few other natural ingredients. 'Fresh Fruit Tea Quarters' are another new innovation, combining tea and fresh fruit juice to create a refreshing soft drink. In Leaf Tea there will be recipes to make the most of matcha and the other stoneground teas now available so you can learn to make tasty 'Somersault' drinks – frappes, milkshakes and ice creams. So turn on your kettle, tune into tea culture and drop those tasteless tea bags for some of the best leaf tea experiences you can have.

    Wow drinkers everywhere with this ’70s-inspired book based on the magical properties of ice from decorative to taste-transforming cubes—playlists included.   With 100+ recipes for artful ice and the drinks that go with them, home bartenders can learn new icy creations to elevate any classic drink, infuse new flavor into a sipper as the ice melts, or impress friends at a party with a frosty punch bowl.   While traveling as a DJ, Leslie Kirchhoff fell in love with the art of craft cocktails, but noticed one thing was missing: inventive ice. Taking it upon herself to create something truly unique, she started Disco Cubes as a passion project to explore the art of ice. Now you can do the same at home with recipes that offer more than just a classic cube.   In this not-so-classic cocktail book, there are one-ingredient cubes to elevate any drink, infused ice to add flavor to simple cocktails, and perfect pairings where ice and drink come together to make a concoction that you (and your guests) won’t forget. Plus, you’ll find playlists at the beginning of each chapter, to set the mood for any occasion.   Recipes include innovative sips such as:   Rose Cubes in a White Negroni  Jalapeño ice for an evolving margarita  A Golden Bloody Mary that shifts from sweet to savory as the ice melts   The Walter Gibbons with a Red Onion Raft  White peach spheres for a cool take on a classic Bellini   A great gift for cocktail and bartending enthusiasts, home cocktail makers and entertainers, drink-nerds who love cocktail history, and anyone who enjoys experimentation.

    Ray Walker had a secure career in finance until a wine-tasting vacation ignited a passion that he couldn't stifle. Ray neglected his work, spending hours poring over ancient French wine-making texts, learning the techniques and the language, and daydreaming about vineyards. After Ray experienced his first taste of wine from Burgundy, he could wait no longer. He quit his job and went to France to start a winery—with little money, a limited command of French, and virtually no wine-making experience.Fueled by determination and joie de vivre, he immersed himself in the extraordinary history of Burgundy's vineyards and began honing his skills. Ray became a pioneer in his use of ancient techniques in modern times and founded Maison Ilan. In 2009, Ray became the first non-French winemaker to purchase grapes and produce a wine from Le Chambertin, long considered to be one of the most revered and singular vineyards in the world.Along with his struggle to capture his wine's distinct terroir, Ray shares enthralling stories of late-night tastings, flying down the Route National on a vintage Peugeot bicycle with no brakes, and his journey to secure both the trust of his insular Burgundian neighbors and the region's most coveted grapes. Capturing the sunlight, the smell of the damp soil, and the taste of superlative wine, The Road to Burgundy is a glorious celebration of finding one's true path in life, and taking a chance—whatever the odds.

    Recipes from Hungary, Vietnam, Bosnia, Bhutan, and more that “document the international language of all people―food and cooking” (Maggie Green, author of The Kentucky Fresh Cookbook).   Each year, the United States legally resettles refugees who have fled their homelands, driven out by violence or persecution. As they and their families struggle to adapt to a new culture, the kitchen often becomes one of the few places where they are able to return “home”—finding comfort in an unfamiliar land, retaining their customs, reconnecting with their past, and preserving a sense of identity.   In Flavors from Home, Aimee Zaring shares fascinating, moving stories of courage, perseverance, and self-reinvention from Kentucky’s resettled refugees. Each chapter features a different person or family and includes carefully selected recipes from places like Cuba, Iraq, Iran, and Somalia. These traditional dishes have nourished both body and soul for people like Huong “CoCo” Tran, who fled South Vietnam in 1975 when Communist troops invaded Saigon, or Kamala Pati Subedi, who was stripped of his citizenship and forced out of Bhutan because of political and religious persecution.   Whether shared at farmers’ markets, restaurants, community festivals, or simply among friends and neighbors, these dishes contribute to the ongoing evolution of American comfort food just as the refugees themselves are redefining what it means to be American. Featuring more than forty recipes from around the globe, Flavors from Home reaches across the table to explore the universal language of food.   “Scrumptious . . . In addition to accessible culinary instruction on an array of global recipes, readers receive the vivid life histories of the cooks themselves. What comes through most poignantly is the resilience and hope of these cooks―people who change the place they’ve come to as much as they are changed by it.” ―Neela Vaswani, author of You Have Given Me a Country
