    The definitive cookbook of the celebrated Boqueria restaurants, inspired by the best of Barcelona tapas.

    The essence of Barcelona tapas is that single, savory, lip-smacking bite that pairs best with a glass of wine and a group of friends. For Boqueria- A Barcelona Cookbook, chef Marc Vidal captures the definitive experience of New York City 's famed Boqueria restaurants, celebrated for the traditional, mouth-watering tapas like patatas bravas, Iberian ham croquettes, blistered green peppers, and bacon-wrapped dates, all of which appear in these pages, along with the restaurant 's signature authentic, seasonal dishes like garlicky sauteed shrimp, Spanish meatballs, and classic, saffrony seafood paella.
    Detailed insights into the history and the day-to-day life of the restaurant complete this sumptuous cookbook, while the recipes take center stage, each accompanied by a stunning photograph. Specially commissioned shots of Barcelona--including the legendary Boqueria fresh market and the best of Barcelona 's tapas bars--capture the inspiration for chef Vidal 's recipes and the heart of Spanish cooking.

    American food is the story of mash-ups. Immigrants arrive, cultures collide, and out of the push-pull come exciting new dishes and flavors. But for Edward Lee, who, like Anthony Bourdain or Gabrielle Hamilton, is as much a writer as he is a chef, that first surprising bite is just the beginning. What about the people behind the food? What about the traditions, the innovations, the memories?

    A natural-born storyteller, Lee decided to hit the road and spent two years uncovering fascinating narratives from every corner of the country. There’s a Cambodian couple in Lowell, Massachusetts, and their efforts to re-create the flavors of their lost country. A Uyghur café in New York’s Brighton Beach serves a noodle soup that seems so very familiar and yet so very exotic one unexpected ingredient opens a window onto an entirely unique culture. A beignet from Café du Monde in New Orleans, as potent as Proust’s madeleine, inspires a narrative that tunnels through time, back to the first Creole cooks, then forward to a Korean rice-flour hoedduck and a beignet dusted with matcha.

    Sixteen adventures, sixteen vibrant new chapters in the great evolving story of American cuisine. And forty recipes, created by Lee, that bring these new dishes into our own kitchens.

    From Tudor oyster peddlers and Victorian pie and mash shops, to the supper clubs and street food scene flourishing today, Britain's capital has always been a tantalising draw for those who live to eat.
    In Made in London, born-and-bred Londoner Leah Hyslop offers a joyful celebration of the city and its food, past and present. The book features recipes invented in the city; such as the 18th century treat Chelsea buns (a favourite of King George II) and Omelette Arnold Bennett, created for the famous writer while staying at the Savoy Hotel. Alongside these are new, exciting dishes, inspired by the Leah 's eating adventures around the capital- such as a mouthwatering Pimm 's and lemon curd trifle, an unusual goat 's cheese and cherry tart and an easy twist on Indian restaurant Dishoom 's iconic bacon naan, one of the best brunches in London.
    Interspersed with the recipes are short, entertaining histories and profiles about London 's food scene, including the tale of the 18th century 'gin craze'; a profile of the East End 's most beloved greasy spoon; and why Scotch eggs might have actually been invented in a London department store! Short shopping guides, lifting the lid on such pressing gastronomic questions as where to buy cheese, the city's most delicious chocolate shops, or the best cocktail bars for a nightcap (or two -) are also featured.
    Beautifully illustrated with contemporary photographs of London, alongside vintage images sourced from historic archives, this is a book for anyone who has ever lived in, visited or simply dreamt of sipping a cocktail while watching red buses trundle by in the world's greatest city.
