The Marley Coffee Cookbook sings the praises of coffee-infused cuisine Rohan Marley kicks off each chapter of The Marley Coffee Cookbook, offering anecdotes about growing up as the son of legendary musician Bob Marley, who to this day is revered by music lovers young and old. Many chapter names reference Bob Marley's music, and a chapter of vegetarian recipes starts like this: "One Love is one of my father's biggest songs, and I wanted the coffee that I named One Love not just to be a standout single origin coffee, but to really resonate with people." Chef MaxcelHardy's flawless recipes and expert guidance on the best way to infuse a dish with coffee flavor make this book a very special addition to any cookbook collection. From the vantage point of a chef, Hardy speaks to the importance of choosing a particular coffee to harmonize with certain foods, and he shows how easy it is to use coffee in a way that it brings out the best in everything from savory dishes to sweet treats. There's a strong coffee connection for each dish, whether it is infused with a mocha theme or it rocks an espresso flavor. These are dishes you're unlikely to find in many other places: sweet potato waffles with a pecan coffee syrup, grilled salmon with a coffee, maple, and ginger glaze, fried plantains with coffee sugar, coffee spice blend-marinated lamb ribs with guava BBQ sauce are just some examples of Hardy's imaginative recipes.

A love note to beer--appreciating the history, craftsmanship, and taste of craft beer as told by a woman striving for beer-expert status. Lucy Burningham is a beer lover living in America's capital of craft brews: Portland, Oregon. As a journalist spurred by curiosity and thirst, she made it her career to write about craft beer, traveling to hop farms, attending rare beer tasting parties, and visiting as many taprooms, breweries, and festivals as possible. With this as her introduction, Lucy decided to take her relationship with beer to the next level: to become a certified beer expert, a Master Cicerone. Join Lucy as she studies and sips her way to becoming a Cicerone. Travel with her to Europe to learn from some of Belgium's most influential brewers, and contemplate the craftsmanship and ingredients that go into making a great beer. Dine with her at three-star Michelin restaurants as she examines how the palate interprets flavors and aromas. Hang out with her as she tries her hand at brewing beer herself, both at her home and in a commercial brewery with her mentor, brewer John Harris, for an inside look at brewing techniques. With an eclectic cast of characters, including brewers, maltsters, hop farmers, beer sommeliers, pub owners, and fanatical beer drinkers, Lucy's journey into the world of beer is by turns educational, social, and personal--just as enjoying a good beer should be. In the end, not only will you understand the basics of how beer is made, sold, and served, you'll also understand why the drink inspires fanatical craft brewing fandom, and why a good beer shouldn't be taken for granted.
