    Before he earned his third Michelin star at his iconic restaurant, Le Bernardin, the James Beard Award for Outstanding Chef of the Year, became a regular guest judge on Bravo's Top Chef, even before he knew how to make a proper omelet, Eric Ripert was a young boy in the South of France who felt that his world had come to an end. At the age of five, his parents went through a bitter divorce. Eric moved away with his mother, whose new husband, Serge, quickly grew to resent Eric and seemed to delight in making him miserable. The only place Eric felt at home was the kitchen, where his mother tried to cheer him up with lavish meals, and where his friend Jacques, a local chef, introduced Eric to caviar, chocolate mousse, and a future where his lifelong love of food could become something he shared with other people. This memoir is the story of a young chef coming of age, following Eric's life from childhood through his early twenties, where he finds his home in the brutal, exacting kitchens of legendary chefs like Joel Robouchon

    Located just an hour away from Hong Kong on the banks of the Pearl River in China, Macau is one of the wealthiest cities in the world-the so-called oLas Vegas of the East,o and the only place in China where gambling is legal. However, Macau's modern-day glitz belies its rich, centuries-old history as one of the greatest trading ports in the world. Ruled by Portugal from the 1600s until 1999, Macau was a crossroads along the spice route, and a place where travelers from Europe, Southeast Asia, South Asia, and mainland China traded resources, culture, and food-making Macanese cuisine one of the most eclectic and deliciously unique food traditions in the world. Abraham Conlon and Adrienne Lo are the chefs and owners of the wildly popular and critically-lauded Chicago restaurant Fat Rice, where they serve their own unique take on the food of Macau. The Adventures of Fat Rice is a fun and whimsical tear through modern-day Macau-and the minds of two wildly creative chefs. Dishes like Hong Kong French Toast (Macau's version of dim sum), Po Kok Gai (a Portuguese chicken curry), and the titular Arroz Gordo (if Spanish paella and Chinese fried rice had a baby) are enticingly exotic yet accessible and even playful. Featuring a mish-mash of classic and interpretative dishes, plus comic book-style illustrations and edgy location photography, The Adventures of Fat Rice will be the first book to bring the eclectic, richly satisfying, and previously unheralded food of Macau to the mainstream.

    This eminently browsable, dip-in/dip-out book is an indispensable guide to the most interesting, iconic, and unique foods from 155 different countries.

    Alexandre Stern has compiled a veritable “bucket list” of foods to try at least once in life. Bringing together gastronomy, discovery, and travel, this geographically organised journey highlights more than 700 culinary specialties spanning five continents.

    There is much food trivia and history to ponder: the common carrot originated in Afghanistan, while fish sperm is prized in Japan. Baba au rhum – famed as a refined masterpiece of upscale French patisserie – was invented in Poland as a humble, rumless cake. Closer to home, we learn that New England lobster, now a luxury, was once considered fit only for the poor.

    Organised alphabetically by continent and country, this is an engaging tour of the world’s pantry from soup to nuts, including fruits, vegetables, spices, breads and baked goods, seafood, meats, dairy, drinks, and much more. Highly browsable, this is an inspirational guide to new tastes and culinary adventures.

    Home will be the charming and smart, definitive and intimate portrait of culinary icon Alice Waters, whose ideas have changed the way we eat today. This culinary memoir, written by Alice's daughter Fanny, will describe the unique relationship between mother and daughter through short-story-like vignettes that relate to specific recipes and food-related remembrances.

    Punctuated by 75-100 narrative recipes and full of personal photography from celebrated photographer Brigitte Lacombe, the book will reveal how relationships can be shaped by food, cooking together, and travel. Beginning from just after Fanny was born (The Washington Post's 1984 article: "Bringing Up Baby on Grapes and Quail"), it will cover extravagant school lunches, first ice creams in Florence and will extend into the present day.
    It is full of tales about the absurd measures taken to ensure that good food was always on the table (even if that "table" was the aeroplane tray table, or a towel on the beach, or a picnic table at a Kansas rest stop). This obsession is told through stories of travel to France, England, Italy, Spain, Germany, Mexico, and across the United States, among other destinations, always in search of the best local ingredients. But it is likewise a story of cooking and eating at home - and above all a story of togetherness, proximity, and love.

    AMERICA - FARM TO TABLE: Simple, Delicious Recipes Celebrating Local Farmers! Mario Batali, who knows the importance of ingredients to any amazing dish, sees farmers as the rock stars of the food world. In this new book he celebrates American farmers: their high quality products and their culture defined by hard work, integrity, and pride. Batali asked his chef friends from Nashville, Tennessee, to San Francisco, to tell him who their favourite farmers were and those farmers graciously shared their personal stories along with their top-of-the-line produce and products. In Seattle, Chef Matt Dillon introduces readers to Farmer Pierre Monnant, who produces fava beans and lamb. Batali then features those ingredients in such mouth-watering recipes as: Lamb Shank Sloppy Joes and Fave Bean Guacamole. In Washington, DC, Chef Jose Andres from Jaleo introduces us to Farmer Jim Crawford, who grows corn, broccoli and strawberries. Batali's accompanying dishes include: Chilled Sweet Corn Soup and Grilled Salmon with Strawberry Salsa. Other stops along the way include: Tampa; Austin; Nashville; Las Vegas; Los Angeles; New York; San Francisco; Portland; Maine; Chicago; Cleveland; Suttons Bay, Michigan; and Vail Colorado. With over 100 superb recipes, this is the book that every home cook will want upon returning from the farmer's market or grocers.
