    'The white-hot reaction of a sensitive, observant, compassionate young man to poverty'
    DERVLA MURPHY
    With an Introduction by Dervla Murphy'The white-hot reaction of a sensitive, observant, compassionate young man to poverty'DERVLA MURPHYGeorge Orwell's vivid memoir of his time living among the desperately poor and destitute is a moving tour of the underworld society. Written when Orwell was a struggling writer in his twenties, it documents his 'first contact with poverty': sleeping in bug-infested hostels and doss houses of last resort, working as a dishwasher in Paris, surviving on scraps and cigarette butts, living alongside tramps, a star-gazing pavement artist and a starving Russian ex-army captain. Exposing a shocking, previously hidden world to readers, Orwell gave a human face to the statistics of poverty for the first time. In doing so, he found his voice as a writer.'Orwell was the great moral force of his age' Spectator

    Cooking outside one's comfort zone is now easier than ever: ingredients once considered exotic are now available at supermarkets across the country, and we're now more open to exploring the far reaches of the world through food. This tantalizing cookbook takes readers on a global tour through food, from the steamy noodle shops of Seoul to the wood-fired grills of Istanbul and funky dives of San Francisco. Randy and Darcy Shore explore how food informs our ideas around community and identity ("home"), and how it shapes our experience of and appreciation for other cultures ("away").

    Their recipes are based on their years of travel as well as their intrinsic interest in the foods of other cultures; they make once complicated dishes a little easier for North American cooks while still respecting centuries-old food traditions. Their book includes such dishes as Braised Pork Belly with Crunchy Rice, Volcanic Soba Noodle Salad, Moroccan Lamb with Lemon Couscous, and Jerk Chicken with Grilled Romaine. There's also interviews with chefs Mario Batali, Edward Lee, Anita Lo, Vikram Vij, and others on the ways their cultures influence their cooking.

    Home and Away takes home cooks on a delicious trip around the world, no passport required. 140 recipes.
