Toby Cecchini

Cosmopolitan : A Bartender's Life

This is a memoir of the bartending life structured as a day in the life at Passerby, the bar owned and run by Toby Cecchini. It is, as well, a rich study of human nature—of the sometimes annoying, sometimes outlandish behavior of the human animal under the influence of alcohol, lust, and the sheer desire to bust loose and party. Cosmopolitan: A Bartender's Life is the hip, behind-the-scenes look at the frenzied yet undeniably fun atmosphere of that great establishment—the bar—and Toby Cecchini sheds plenty of light on the hidden corners of what people do when they go out at night.

Bernard Clayton

30th Anniversary Bernard Clayton's New Complete Book Of Bread

First published in 1973, Bernard Clayton's The Complete Book of Breads immediately became a modern classic; under his guidance, a generation of home bakers was introduced to the seductive pleasures of baking and produced their first loaves. But new products and equipment revolutionized the kitchen, and these changes inspired Bernard Clayton's New Complete Book of Breads, which first appeared in 1987. With an electric mixer, a food processor, or a bread machine, and with faster-acting yeasts, anyone could produce home-baked loaves in a fraction of the time bread-baking once took. The availability of a wide variety of flours and specialty products, once found only in health-food and gourmet stores, opened up a world of possibilities. Clayton revised 200 of the original recipes and added 100 more with these new ingredients and equipment in mind.

Tom Colicchio

Craft of Cooking : Notes and Recipes from a Restaurant Kitchen

Tom Colicchio's New York restaurant Craft is all about the food. Not food as a medium for feats of culinary sleight of hand, but foods that taste unmistakably like themselves-- only more so. This is simple food that is not simplistic, dishes whose purpose is to celebrate fresh, seasonal, usually local ingredients. Rarely do the 125 recipes in Craft require the skills of a professional chef, but they always call for the insight of someone who knows how to bring out the essential flavor and texture of top-quality ingredients.

Lunch Lessons is a practical guide to the system and how it should change – it has a wealth of information on the current (and dire) state of school food, the actions that can be taken to change it, a policy guide, a resource guide, and recipes for breakfast and lunch, complete with nutrition information.

Greg Critser

Fat Land : How Americans Became the Fattest People in the World

Greg Critser engages every aspect of American life to determine how we have made ourselves the second fattest people on the planet (after South Sea Islanders). Fat Land grapples with the expanding American waistline by tracing surprising connections among class, politics, culture, and economics. With groundbreaking research, Critser also investigates the dark metabolic underside of cheap fats and sugars and how their calories stick. Incisive, discerning, and disarmingly funny, Fat Land is a chilling but brilliantly rendered portrait of the cost in human lives — many of them very young lives — of America’s obesity epidemic.
