Food Rules: An Eater's Manual
Food Rules
An Eater's Manual
Paperback      ISBN: 014311638x
#1 New York Times Bestseller

A useful and funny purse-sized manual that could easily replace all the diet books on your bookshelf. --Tara Parker-Pope, The New York Times

A definitive compendium of food wisdom

Eating doesn't have to be so complicated. In this age of ever-more elaborate diets and conflicting health advice, Food Rules brings welcome simplicity to our daily decisions about food. Written with clarity, concision, and wit that has become bestselling author Michael Pollan's trademark, this indispensable handbook lays out a set of straightforward, memorable rules for eating wisely, one per page, accompanied by a concise explanation. It's an easy-to-use guide that draws from a variety of traditions, suggesting how different cultures through the ages have arrived at the same enduring wisdom about food. Whether at the supermarket or an all-you-can-eat buffet, this is the perfect guide for anyone who ever wondered, "What should I eat?"

In the more than four decades that I have been reading and writing about the findings of nutritional science, I have come across nothing more intelligent, sensible and simple to follow than the 64 principles outlined in a slender, easy-to-digest new book called Food Rules: An Eater's Manual, by Michael Pollan. --Jane Brody, The New York Times

It doesn't get much easier than this. Each page has a simple rule, sometimes with a short explanation, sometimes without, that promotes Pollan's back-to-the-basics-of-food (and-food-enjoyment) philosophy. --The Los Angeles Times

Michael Pollan's most recent book on food, Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation--the story of our most trusted food expert's culinary education--was published by Penguin Press in April 2013, and in 2016 it served as the inspiration for a four-part docuseries on Netflix by the same name.

A Dictionary of Japanese Food: Ingredients and Culture
A Dictionary of Japanese Food
Ingredients and Culture
Paperback      ISBN: 4805313358
Nominated for the Glenfiddich Food Book of the Year Award, this timeless volume is the first and only book of its kind on the subject.

A Dictionary of Japanese Food helps food lovers around the world decipher the intricacies and nuances of Japanese cooking and its ingredients. Definitions in ordinary cookbooks and standard dictionaries--such as akebia for akebi, sea cucumber for namako, plum for ume--can be inadequate, misleading, or just plain wrong. Richard Hoskings eliminates the mystery by ensuring that each entry in the Japanese-English section includes the Japanese term in Roman script; the word in kana or kanji or both; a Latin name where appropriate; an English definition; and, for most entries, a short annotation.

The English-Japanese section defines relevant English food terms in Japanese and annotates those needing explanation. One hundred small line drawings make it easy for readers to identify everything from mitsuba to the okoze fish, and seventeen appendices address the most critical elements of Japanese cuisine, from the making of miso and the structure of the Japanese meal to the tea ceremony.

Newly typeset and featuring a fascinating and informative new foreword by Japanese cookbook author Debra Samuel, A Dictionary of Japanese Food will continue to help both food lovers, and visitors to Japan discover the wonders of one of the world's great cuisines.

The Case Against Sugar
The Case Against Sugar
1st Edition    Hardcover      ISBN: 0307701646
From the best-selling author of Why We Get Fat, a groundbreaking, eye-opening expos that makes the convincing case that sugar is the tobacco of the new millennium: backed by powerful lobbies, entrenched in our lives, and making us very sick.

Among Americans, diabetes is more prevalent today than ever; obesity is at epidemic proportions; nearly 10% of children are thought to have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. And sugar is at the root of these, and other, critical society-wide, health-related problems. With his signature command of both science and straight talk, Gary Taubes delves into Americans' history with sugar: its uses as a preservative, as an additive in cigarettes, the contemporary overuse of high-fructose corn syrup. He explains what research has shown about our addiction to sweets. He clarifies the arguments against sugar, corrects misconceptions about the relationship between sugar and weight loss; and provides the perspective necessary to make informed decisions about sugar as individuals and as a society.
Modern Maple
Modern Maple
Paperback      ISBN: 0873518888

Maple syrup is a genuine product of the north, made only in the northeastern quarter of the United States and adjoining Canadian provinces. The Ojibwe and Dakota used it as a seasoning and also cooked it down to a crystallized state to preserve and transport it. Today, locally produced pure maple syrup is regarded as an artisan product, prized by cooks and bakers alike. Minnesota and Wisconsin are home to numerous syrup producers, from family-run operations that do everything from collection to boiling and bottling to large packagers that buy raw sap to process and sell.

Modern Maple celebrates this local treasure in ways both traditional and contemporary, with seventy-five recipes using maple to season, flavor, and sweeten dishes ranging from traditional breakfast favorites to appetizers, sandwiches, vegetables, main courses, breads, and desserts. Grilled Radicchio with Maple Drizzle and Goat Cheese, Pecan-Crusted Chicken with Maple Apples, Cardamom-Maple Swirl Bread, Roasted Carrot-Ginger Soup with Maple, and Maple Baklava are just a few of the delights that await. A special section on backyard syruping gives complete but easy instructions for making homemade syrup on a very small scale--a fun and interesting hobby that pays dividends in the kitchen.

The Northern Plate

Modern Maple is the second book in the Northern Plate series, following Rhubarb Renaissance. Each book in the series celebrates a specific food from the bounty of the Upper Midwest.
