Take Julia Child add Paul Child, M. F. K. Fisher, and Richard Olnay, mix in Simone Beck and James Beard and you have a recipe for a fascinating book on how these authors/cooks/chefs came together in Provence, 1970 and changed the American gastronomical world. A perfect gift for the Foodie in the family. Nathan
An almost unbearably gorgeous book full of almost impossibly glamorous people. One of the ancillary art forms spawned by Hollywood in the studio era was the studio star portrait, and probably the master of them all was George Hurrell. Lighting, makeup and wardrobe helped, but look at what there was to work with (see freckled Joan Crawford's before-and-after portraits)!
From the authors of Plenty and Jerusalem just in time for the cook on your gift list. What i love about Ottolenghi's recipes is that they always turn out as hoped and usually look just as good as the photos. Page 126 is really good and p122 was excellent. The soups are delicious and p46 would be great for a holiday accompaniment. And there is a baking chapter too - p224 I'm coming for you! Enjoy.Susannah V.
The Council keeps a tight rein on the passengers of the Asherah, which is nearing the end of its 500-year journey to colonize a new planet, but there's a rebellion brewing on the ship, and Terra Fineberg ends up in the midst of it. Gripping sci-fi with a Jewish twist.
Only one man has performed David Bowie's "Space Oddity" in space -- and then he returned to earth and wrote a book. If you enjoyed Commander Hadfield's videos and pictures during his stay on the International Space Station, you'll love his take space travel, farm life, and being prepared for anything.
Without question one of my favorite 2013 releases and destined to be a classic, The Son is an incredible, old-fashioned epic about the American West. It’s as violent and tough as it is gripping and unforgettable. Meyer gets right into his characters’ heads and fills the book with impressive historical and geographic detail; you’ll think you’re reading Cormac McCarthy crossed with Margaret Atwood. You’ll wonder at how he pulled it off.
