Bonjour Kale: A Memoir of Paris, Love, and Recipes

Kristen Beddard

Bonjour Kale: A Memoir of Paris, Love, and Recipes by Kristen Beddard

A memoir of love, life, and recipes from the woman who brought kale to the City of Light

The story of how one expat woman left her beloved behind when she moved to France-her beloved kale, that is. Unable to find le chou kale anywhere upon moving to the City of Light with her new husband, and despite not really speaking French, Kristen Beddard launched a crusade to single-handedly bring kale to the country of croissants and cheese. Infused with Kristen's recipes and some from French chefs, big and small (including Michelin star chef Alain Passard) Bonjour Kale is a humorous, heartfelt memoir...

Charlie Trotter: How One Superstar Chef and His Iconic Chicago Restaurant Helped Revolutionize American Cuisine

Chicago Tribune Staff

Charlie Trotter: How One Superstar Chef and His Iconic Chicago Restaurant Helped Revolutionize American Cuisine by Chicago Tribune StaffBursting onto the Chicago fine-dining scene in 1987, Charlie Trotter's restaurant soon became a local icon and eventually a national landmark. From his initial rise to culinary stardom to his untimely death in November 2013, Charlie Trotter was one of Chicago's most distinguished and high-profile chefs.

Trotter, more than any of his peers, ushered in a new type of dining experience—the "New American" gourmet cuisine that has proliferated across the country—by never offering the same menu twice, and creating multi-course meals from scratch each day using boutique ingredients, including a rare...

Chef Tell: The Biography of America's Pioneer TV Showman Chef

Ronald Joseph Kule

Chef Tell: The Biography of America's Pioneer TV Showman Chef by Ronald Joseph KuleBefore the heyday of the Food Network, there was Chef Tell—nickname of Friedemann Paul Erhardt, America's first TV showman chef. Big on personality and flavor, Chef Tell was once called by Philadelphia magazine the "affably roguish Bad Boy of the Philadelphia restaurant world." Chef Tell explores how a young German American chef became America's biggest TV celebrity chef of his time. Most of Chef Tell's forty million baby boomer viewers—a number comparable to Julia Child's—never knew his fascinating, hardscrabble life story.

Until now.

This winning biography brings us "behind the line" into his...

Colonel Sanders and the American Dream

Josh Ozersky

Colonel Sanders and the American Dream by Josh OzerskyFrom Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben to the Jolly Green Giant and Ronald McDonald, corporate icons sell billions of dollars' worth of products. But only one of them was ever a real person-Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken/KFC. From a 1930s roadside café in Corbin, Kentucky, Harland Sanders launched a fried chicken business that now circles the globe, serving "finger lickin' good" chicken to more than twelve million people every day. But to get there, he had to give up control of his company and even his own image, becoming a mere symbol to people today who don't know that Colonel Sanders...

Famous Nathan: A Family Saga of Coney Island, the American Dream, and the Search for the Perfect Hot Dog

Mr. Lloyd Handwerker & Gil Reavill

Famous Nathan: A Family Saga of Coney Island, the American Dream, and the Search for the Perfect Hot Dog by Mr. Lloyd Handwerker & Gil Reavill

From a Nickel to an Empire

Before the gut-busting eating contests and franchise stores across the country, there was a single man, Nathan Handwerker. An Eastern European Jewish immigrant who left the small provincial world he knew for a fresh start in America, Nathan arrived at Ellis Island speaking not a word of English, unable to read or write, and with twenty-five dollars hidden in his shoes. He had a simple goal: work hard and carve out a piece of the American dream. But history had bigger plans for Nathan.

Beginning in 1916, with just five feet of counter space on Coney Island's Surf Avenue,...

Food, Sex, Wine and Cigars: A Memoir

Lisa Stalvey

Food, Sex, Wine and Cigars: A Memoir by Lisa StalveySynopsis:

My memoir spans the first twelve years of my life as a professional chef. I was living in hell from September 1980 until 1993, facing many unforeseen challenges in every aspect of my life.

I planned on making this a cookbook twenty-two years ago. Then one day in 2011, it came to me that it needed to be a memoir, so I just sat down and wrote.

While writing this book, I found myself craving to feel hungry again, and with that came misery. The old habits of anorexia truly never leave. They linger around waiting for the chance to pounce again.

I think that both my parents being...

Food: A Love Story

Jim Gaffigan

Food: A Love Story by Jim Gaffigan"What are my qualifications to write this book? None really. So why should you read it? Here's why: I'm a little fat. If a thin guy were to write about a love of food and eating I'd highly recommend that you do not read his book."

Bacon. McDonalds. Cinnabon. Hot Pockets. Kale. Stand-up comedian and author Jim Gaffigan has made his career rhapsodizing over the most treasured dishes of the American diet ("choking on bacon is like getting murdered by your lover") and decrying the worst offenders ("kale is the early morning of foods"). Fans flocked to his New York Times bestselling book Dad is Fat...

Giant Bluefin

Douglas Whynott

Giant Bluefin by Douglas WhynottThis elegantly written and compelling work portrays the way the Japanese demand for giant bluefin tuna has altered the lives of Cape Cod fishermen. In telling the story of one man's passionate hunt for giant bluefin, Douglas Whynott details the competition and camaraderie in the bluefin fishery, the pressures of a conservationist movement seeking to limit the bluefin harvest, and the struggle of the fisherman himself against "the wild horses of [the] fish species."

In a French Kitchen: Tales and Traditions of Everyday Home Cooking in France

Susan Herrmann Loomis

In a French Kitchen: Tales and Traditions of Everyday Home Cooking in France by Susan Herrmann LoomisA delightful celebration of French life and the cooks who turn even the simplest meals into an occasion

Even before Susan Herrmann Loomis wrote her now-classic memoir, On Rue Tatin, American readers have been compelled by books about the French's ease with cooking. With In a French Kitchen, Loomis—an expat who long ago traded her American grocery store for a bustling French farmer's market—demystifies in lively prose the seemingly effortless je ne sais quoi behind a simple French meal.

One by one, readers are invited to meet the busy people of Louviers and surrounding villages and towns of Loomis's...

Moonshine: A Cultural History of America's Infamous Liquor

Jaime Joyce

Moonshine: A Cultural History of America's Infamous Liquor by Jaime JoyceNothing but clear, 100-proof American history. Hooch. White lightning. White whiskey. Mountain dew. Moonshine goes by many names. So what is it, really? Technically speaking, "moonshine" refers to untaxed liquor made in an unlicensed still. In the United States, it's typically corn that's used to make the clear, unaged beverage, and it's the mountain people of the American South who are most closely associated with the image of making and selling backwoods booze at night-by the light of the moon-to avoid detection by law enforcement. In Moonshine: A Cultural History of America's Infamous...

My Fat Dad: A Memoir of Food, Love, and Family, with Recipes

My Fat Dad: A Memoir of Food, Love, and Family, with Recipes by Dawn LermanFrom the author of the New York Times Well Blog series, My Fat Dad

Every story and every memory from my childhood is attached to food...

Dawn Lerman spent her childhood constantly hungry. She craved good food as her father, 450 pounds at his heaviest, pursued endless fad diets, from Atkins to Pritikin to all sorts of freeze-dried, saccharin-laced concoctions, and insisted the family do the same—even though no one else was overweight. Dawn's mother, on the other hand, could barely be bothered to eat a can of tuna over the sink. She was too busy ferrying her other daughter to acting auditions and...

Having made the cross-Atlantic jump to judge in The Great American Baking Competition, it's clear that there is no stopping the magnetic Liverpudlian.
