How to Eat a Small Country: A Family's Pursuit of Happiness, One Meal at a Time

Amy Finley

How to Eat a Small Country: A Family's Pursuit of Happiness, One Meal at a Time by Amy Finley"How to Eat a Small Country shares a few key traits with Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love in particular an infectiously likeable narrator and mouthwatering descriptions of European food. But Finley's memoir is less precious, more honest, and ultimately more rewarding." -- Boston Globe

A professionally trained cook turned stay-at-home mom, Amy Finley decided on a whim to send in an audition tape for season three of The Next Food Network Star, and the impossible happened: she won. So why did she walk away from it all? A triumphant and endearing tale of family, food, and France, Amy's story is...

Paul Hollywood: The Biography

Andrew Dagnell

Paul Hollywood: The Biography by Andrew DagnellPaul Hollywood is without doubt the man of the moment in British baking. His luxurious dough recipes have been single-handedly responsible for the mass ignition of ovens across the UK since the advent of The Great British Bake Off. Admired for his straight-talking style and amazing technical knowledge, Paul's judging partnership with Mary Berry has been described as one of television's best ever. 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.

Balzac's Omelette

Anka Muhlstein

Balzac's Omelette by Anka Muhlstein"Tell me where you eat, what you eat, and at what time you eat, and I will tell you who you are. "This is the motto of Anka Muhlstein's erudite and witty book about the ways food and the art of the table feature in Honoré de Balzac's The Human Comedy. Balzac uses them as a connecting thread in his novels, showing how food can evoke character, atmosphere, class, and social climbing more suggestively than money, appearances, and other more conventional trappings.
Full of surprises and insights, Balzac's Omelet invites you to taste anew Balzac's genius as a writer and his deep understanding of...

Chicago Tribune Staff

In all these situations, Achatz defiantly and definitively surmounted innumerable obstacles to become—and remain—one of the world's most recognizable and respected chefs.

Rants and Recipes: A personal account of a lifetime running the Acorn Wholefood Caf

Chris Bland

Rants and Recipes: A personal account of a lifetime running the Acorn Wholefood Caf by Chris BlandIn 1986 Chris Bland gave up the corporate life and opened a wholefood café. This is her story... "Are you still open?" could have been the title of this book - I would be a millionaire if I were paid each time I was asked this. Acorn Wholefood Café started in the hey-day of Cranks, and Sarah Brown - my heroine - was a lifeline. I learnt from her varied and interested recipes, then adapted them to create my own. The reasons for choosing wholefood as the key focus of the Acorn are clear: introducing the concepts and goodness of wholefoods was a passion I could not ignore. Acorn is in the building...

Pancakes in Paris: Living the American Dream in France by Craig Carlson

Paris was practically perfect...

Craig Carlson was the last person anyone would expect to open an American diner in Paris. He came from humble beginnings in a working-class town in Connecticut, had never worked in a restaurant, and didn't know anything about starting a brand-new business. But from his first visit to Paris, Craig knew he had found the city of his dreams, although one thing was still missing-the good ol' American breakfast he loved so much.

Anything That Moves: Renegade Chefs, Fearless Eaters, and the Making of a New American Food Culture

Dana Goodyear

Anything That Moves: Renegade Chefs, Fearless Eaters, and the Making of a New American Food Culture by Dana GoodyearNew Yorker writer Dana Goodyear combines the style of Mary Roach with the on-the-ground food savvy of Anthony Bourdain in a rollicking narrative look at the shocking extremes of the contemporary American food world.

A new American cuisine is forming. Animals never before considered or long since forgotten are emerging as delicacies. Parts that used to be for scrap are centerpieces. Ash and hay are fashionable ingredients, and you pay handsomely to breathe flavored air. Going out to a nice dinner now often precipitates a confrontation with a fundamental question: Is that food?

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...
