    Title: Appetites: A Cookbook
    Author: BOURDAIN ANTHONY

    Brash, wild, original and badass. This is Anthony Bourdain's interpretation of a normal cookbook.As a restaurant professional, Bourdain spent his life on the fringes of normality - he worked while normal people played, and played while normal people slept. Since then he has settled (kind of) into family life and is cooking for the people he loves rather than people who pay. These are the recipes he turns to when called in for pancake service at sleepover parties or when preparing a violence-free family dinner.Each and every word is informed by his years in the industry and a life dedicated to food. This is a man who has declared the club sandwich as America's Enemy and wants you to understand the principles of Bad Sandwich Theory. He has distilled his views on dessert to this: it should always be Stilton.Illustrated with photography that somehow manages to be both strangely beautiful and utterly grotesque, this cookbook - Bourdain's first in ten years - is a home-cooking, home-entertaining cookbook like no other.

    Title: Art of Escapism Cooking
    Author: LEE MANDY


    "Lee, who vents about living abroad in her Lady and Pups blog, fuels this stunning cookbook with the ferocity of Sichuan peppercorns and chili oil. . . . An energetic confessional, for Lee is as gifted a writer as she is a cook. . . . Innovative. . . . A] unique and deeply felt debut." - Publisher's Weekly (starred review)


    In this inventive and intensely personal cookbook, the blogger behind the award-winning ladyandpups.com reveals how she cooked her way out of an untenable living situation, with more than eighty delicious Asian-inspired dishes with influences from around the world.

    For Mandy Lee, moving from New York to Beijing for her husband's work wasn't an exotic adventure--it was an ordeal. Growing increasingly exasperated with China's stifling political climate, its infuriating bureaucracy, and its choking pollution, she began "an unapologetically angry food blog," LadyandPups.com, to keep herself from going mad.


    Mandy cooked because it channeled her focus, helping her cope with the difficult circumstances of her new life. She filled her kitchen with warming spices and sticky sauces while she shared recipes and observations about life, food, and cooking in her blog posts. Born in Taiwan and raised in Vancouver, she came of age food-wise in New York City and now lives in Hong Kong; her food reflects the many places she's lived. This entertaining and unusual cookbook is the story of how "escapism cooking"--using the kitchen as a refuge and ultimately creating delicious and satisfying meals--helped her crawl out of her expat limbo.


    Illustrated with her own gorgeous photography, The Art of Escapism Cooking provides that comforting feeling a good meal provides. Here are dozens of innovative and often Asian-influenced recipes, divided into categories by mood and occasion, such as:


    For Getting Out of Bed
    Poached Eggs with Miso Burnt Butter Hollandaise
    Crackling Pancake with Caramel-Clustered Blueberries and Balsamic Honey


    For Slurping
    Buffalo Fried Chicken Ramen
    Crab Bisque Tsukemen


    For a Crowd
    Cumin Lamb Rib Burger
    Italian Meatballs in Taiwanese Rouzao Sauce


    For Snacking
    Wontons with Shrimp Chili Coconut Oil and Herbed Yogurt
    Spicy Chickpea Poppers


    For Sweets
    Mochi with Peanut Brown Sugar and Ice Cream
    Recycled Nuts and Caramel Apple Cake


    Every dish is sublimely delicious and worth the time and attention required. Mandy also demystifies unfamiliar ingredients and where to find them, shares her favorite tools, and provides instructions for essential condiments for the pantry and fridge, such as Ramen Seasoning, Fried Chili Verde Sauce, Caramelized Onion Powder Paste, and her Ultimate Sichuan Chile Oil.

    Author: BUCKLEY MARTI

    "Truly insider access, an authentic look at the traditions of one of the most incredible culinary regions of the world."
    --Jos Andr s


    Named a Best Cookbook for Fall by the New York Times and Food & Wine

    Tucked away in the northwest corner of Spain, Basque Country not only boasts more Michelin-starred restaurants per capita than any other region in the world, but its unique confluence of mountain and sea, values and tradition, informs every bite of its soulful cuisine, from pintxos to accompany a glass of wine to the elbows-on-the-table meals served in its legendary eating clubs.

    Yet Basque Country is more than a little inaccessible--shielded by a unique language and a distinct culture, it's an enigma to most outsiders. Until now. Marti Buckley, an American chef, journalist, and passionate Basque transplant, unlocks the mysteries of this culinary world by bringing together its intensely ingredient-driven recipes with stories of Basque customs and the Basque kitchen, and vivid photographs of both food and place. And surprise: this is food we both want to eat and can easily make. It's not about exotic ingredients or flashy techniques. It's about mind-set--how to start with that just-right fish or cut of meat or peak-of-ripeness tomato and coax forth its inherent depth of flavor. It's the marriage of simplicity and refinement, and the joy of cooking for family and friends.

    Title: Betraying Big Brother
    Author: FINCHER LETA HONG

    A feminist movement clashing with China's authoritarian government
    On the eve of International Women's Day in 2015, the Chinese government arrested five feminist activists and jailed them for thirty-seven days. The Feminist Five became a global cause c l bre, with Hillary Clinton speaking out on their behalf and activists inundating social media with #FreetheFive messages. But the Five are only symbols of a much larger feminist movement of civil rights lawyers, labor activists, performance artists, and online warriors prompting an unprecedented awakening among China's educated, urban women. In Betraying Big Brother, journalist and scholar Leta Hong Fincher argues that the popular, broad-based movement poses the greatest challenge to China's authoritarian regime today.


    Through interviews with the Feminist Five and other leading Chinese activists, Hong Fincher illuminates both the difficulties they face and their "joy of betraying Big Brother," as one of the Feminist Five wrote of the defiance she felt during her detention. Tracing the rise of a new feminist consciousness now finding expression through the #MeToo movement, and describing how the Communist regime has suppressed the history of its own feminist struggles, Betraying Big Brother is a story of how the movement against patriarchy could reconfigure China and the world.

Their contributions provide essential insight into the challenges China faces, the aspirations of its people and leaders, and the consequences of its meteoric ascent.

  • Estela

    Title: Estela
    Author: MATTOS IGNACIO

    One flight up, in a bustling neighborhood bistro overlooking the chaos of one of downtown New York's busiest streets, Ignacio Mattos serves food so uncannily delicious it consistently earns him accolades like "Chef of the Year," and his restaurant Estela a spot among the World's 50 Best.

    Everyone wants a taste of Estela, from loyal local customers to out-of-town foodies, visiting chefs to visiting presidents. The food is bold, bright, layered, playful, and surprising. Innovative without being precious. Comfort food, really. Food that bursts to life in your mouth--food that hits you right there.

    Estela, the long-awaited cookbook, shows how to think like Ignacio Mattos, who as an immigrant sees ingredients with fresh eyes. Here is how to look at something as ordinary as a button mushroom and make it extraordinary (shaved thin over ricotta dumplings), or as familiar as burrata and transform it (with a pool of juiced herby greens and charred bread). How to use vinegars, citruses, fish sauce, and pickling broth to give each bite a pop of flavor. How to compose a plate in layers, so that the deeper you dig, the more that is revealed, while each forkful carries an electric marriage of flavors and textures.

    Estela presents over 133 recipes, including classics that will never leave the menu, like Lamb Ribs with Chermoula and Honey, Mussels Escabeche on Toast, and the hide-and- seek joy of Endive Salad with Walnuts and Ubriaco Rosso. Small plates meant for sharing with friends and family, like Cherry Tomatoes with Figs and Onion. Incredible pan-seared steaks. And basics for the pantry that will elevate whatever you feel like making.

    Estela is the restaurant, but Estela is far more than a restaurant cookbook. It's an inviting and creative expression of Mattos's fresh and influential style.

    Title: Etxebarri
    Author: CARDENAL JUAN PABLO; ARGUINZONIZ BITTOR

    The highly anticipated first book on the Etxebarri restaurant, considered one of the best grills in the world.
    Bittor Arginzoniz has achieved world fame as a grill genius with his restaurant Etxebarri, located in the farming community of Axpe, a tiny village nestled beneath mountains an hour's drive southeast of Bilbao. When he bought the restaurant building in the centre of the village more than twenty-five years ago, he and his family rebuilt it entirely themselves. He is self-taught and has only ever worked in one kitchen - his own - where he designed and built his famous adjustable-height grills. With no other reference than the oldest culinary technique in the world ̶ fire ̶ he grills using utensils designed by himself, uses specific woods and has an obsessive search for the best product, Arginzoniz has revolutionized the way people roast meat, fish or vegetables. He cooks everything over a grill ̶ even dessert ̶ so everything has a unique taste to it. Michelin awarded Asador Etxebarri a Michelin star in 2010, describing the food as 'an unadulterated pleasure for lovers of simply grilled and roasted dishes...' and he is ranked number 6 in the San Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants 2017.
    He rarely leaves the restaurant except to tend to his farm animals, which supply many of the raw ingredients for his tasting menu. This book describes the man, his kitchen and his recipes in words and stunning photography.
    The best place to eat barbecue, in a tiny village in Spain, one man has turned the humble grill into a work of culinary art. His secret? No charcoal

No doubt you're sweating already...

    Falastin: A Cookbook
    ISBN: 9781785038723
    Title: Falastin: A Cookbook
    Author: TAMIMI SAMI & WIGLEY TARA

    A soulful tour of Palestinian cooking today from the Ottolenghi restaurants' executive chef and partner--120 recipes shaped by his personal story as well as the history of Palestine.

    "This is a beautiful book and I want to cook every single recipe in it."--Nigella Lawson

    The story of Palestine's food is really the story of its people. When the events of 1948 forced residents from all regions of Palestine together into one compressed land, recipes that were once closely guarded family secrets were shared and passed between different groups in an effort to ensure that they were not lost forever.

    In Falastin (pronounced "fa-la-steen"), Sami Tamimi retraces the lineage and evolution of his country's cuisine, born of its agriculturally optimal geography, its distinct culinary traditions, and Palestinian cooks' ingenuity and resourcefulness. Tamimi covers the territory between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River--East Jerusalem and the West Bank, up north to the Galilee and the coastal cities of Haifa and Akka, inland to Nazareth, and then south to Hebron and the coastal Gaza Strip--recounting his upbringing with eleven siblings and his decision to leave home at seventeen to cook in West Jerusalem, where he met and first worked with Yotam Ottolenghi.

    From refugee-camp cooks to the home kitchens of Gaza and the mill of a master tahini maker, Tamimi teases out the vestiges of an ancient culinary tradition as he records the derivations of a dynamic cuisine and people in more than 130 transporting photographs and 120 recipes, including:

    - Hassan's Easy Eggs with Za'atar and Lemon
    - Fish Kofta with Yogurt, Sumac, and Chile
    - Pulled-Lamb Schwarma Sandwich
    - Labneh Cheesecake with Roasted Apricots, Honey, and Cardamom

    Named after the Palestinian newspaper that brought together a diverse people, Falastin is a vision of a cuisine, a culture, and a way of life as experienced by one influential chef.
