    This guide to the Chesapeake Bay crab culture includes dozens of recipes, a history of Bay crabs, and illustrated instructions on buying and cleaning the popular crustacean. As the main ingredient in chowders, pastas, and appetizers, the taste of blue crab is part of life in the Chesapeake Bay area, a region steeped in crab culture. Home to the oldest commercial fishing industries in the country, it provides approximately one-third of the crabs consumed in the United States. Not only does this compilation of crab heritage contain tips on how to steam a crab without losing the claws, it is also a useful tool to take to the docks or market. A handy glossary helps readers tell the difference between a Jimmy and a Sally, not to mention a jumbo and a swamp dog. After listings of themed festivals and museum profiles early in the book, hearty recipes fill the pages with Crab Spring Rolls, Roasted Corn and Crab Chowder, Deviled Crab-Filled Crepes, and many more culinary delights.

    The great Victorian biologist Thomas Huxley once wrote, "I know of no familiar substance forming part of our everyday knowledge and experience, the examination of which, with a little care, tends to open up such very considerable issues as does yeast." Huxley was right. Beneath the very foundations of human civilization lies yeast—also known as the sugar fungus. Yeast is responsible for fermenting our alcohol and providing us with bread—the very staples of life. Moreover, it has proven instrumental in helping cell biologists and geneticists understand how living things work, manufacturing life-saving drugs, and producing biofuels that could help save the planet from global warming.In The Rise of Yeast, Nicholas P. Money argues that we cannot ascribe too much importance to yeast, and that its discovery and controlled use profoundly altered human history. Humans knew what yeast did long before they knew what it was. It was not until Louis Pasteur's experiments in the 1860s that scientists even acknowledged its classification as a fungus. A compelling blend of science, history, and sociology, The Rise of Yeast explores the rich, strange, and utterly symbiotic relationship between people and yeast, a stunning account that takes us back to the roots of human history.

    “A guide produced by these internationally renowned cheesemongers, including detailed notes on many of the world’s best cheeses, [and] ample recipes.” —Richard Corrigan, Corrigan’s Restaurants 
     
    The brothers Kevin and Seamus Sheridan founded Sheridans Cheesemongers in 1995. Today, they are a brand name for cheese in Ireland, Europe, and the United States. Their distinctively branded crackers and biscuits are available at more than seventy retailers, such as Dean & DeLuca, Murray’s, and Zingerman’s. Together, they are a veritable cheese master class: absolutely everything you could possibly want to know about not only the great cheeses of the world but also the fascinating little handcrafted cheeses, those individual masterworks that showcase some cheese maker’s genius, and also the specialty cheeses you may not think of first but may find that you enjoy far more than some of the bigger names. 
     
    Sheridans’ Guide to Cheese is a complete guide for both novice cheese lovers and mature connoisseurs alike. There’s not much Kevin and Seamus have to say on the subject that isn’t worth hearing—or reading—and this compendium is an indispensable handbook on cheese. Inside you’ll find a country-by-country and style-by-style guide to cheeses of the world and heaps of practical advice on selecting, buying, aging, and storing cheese, as well as tasting notes to help you appreciate every kind you try. This is also an invaluable resource for assembling an ideal cheese plate, wine- and flavor-pairing notes, and even, here and there, a few useful recipes (such as a simply perfect risotto, which Seamus was taught in Italy by a parmesan maker).
