Atelier Crenn Book Excerpt:

The debut cookbook from the first female American chef to earn two Michelin stars. Atelier Crenn is the debut cookbook of Dominique Crenn, the first female chef in America to be awarded two Michelin stars—and arguably the greatest female chef in the country. This gorgeous book traces Crenn’s rise from her childhood in France to her unprecedented success with her own restaurant, Atelier Crenn, in San Francisco. Crenn’s food is centered around organic, sustainable ingredients with an unusual, inventive, and always stunning presentation. To put it simply, Crenn’s dishes are works of art. Her recipes reflect her poetic nature, with evocative names like “A Walk in the Forest,” “Birth,” and “The Sea.” Even the dishes that sound familiar, like Fish and Chips, or Broccoli and Beef Tartare, challenge the expected with their surprising components and her signature creative plating. Her first cookbook is a captivating treat for anyone who loves food. “Atelier Crenn perfectly captures the creativity, talent, and taste of Dominique Crenn.” —Daniel Boulud

Best Food Writing 2016 Book Excerpt:

Like your favorite local grocery store, with its sushi bar, fresh baked goods, and maybe a very obliging butcher, Best Food Writing offers a bounty of everything in one place. For seventeen years, Holly Hughes has delved into piles of magazines and newspapers, scanned endless websites and blogs, and foraged through bookstores to provide a robust mix of what's up in the world of food writing. From the year's hottest trends (this year: meal kits and extreme dining) to the realities of everyday meals and home cooks (with kids, without; special occasions and every day) to highlighting those chefs whose magic is best spun in their own kitchens, these essays once again skillfully, deliciously evoke what's on our minds-and our plates. Pull up a chair.

MUNCHIES Book Excerpt:

This cookbook, based on the game-changing web series Chef's Night Out, features stories of the world's best chefs' debauched nights on the town, and recipes for the food they cook to soak up the booze afterwards. MUNCHIES brings the hugely popular show Chef's Night Out (on VICE Media's food website, MUNCHIES) to the page with snapshots of food culture in cities around the world, plus tall tales and fuzzy recollections from 70 of the world's top chefs, including Anthony Bourdain, Dominique Crenn, David Chang, Danny Bowien, Wylie Dufresne, Inaki Aizpitarte, and Enrique Olvera, among others. Then there are the 65 recipes: dishes these chefs cook when they're done feeding customers, and ready to feed their friends instead. With chapters like "Drinks" (i.e., how to get your night started), "Things with Tortillas," "Hardcore" (which includes pizzas, nachos, poutines, and more), and "Morning After" (classy and trashy dishes for the bleary-eyed next day), MUNCHIES features more than 65 recipes to satisfy any late-night craving and plenty of drinks to keep the party going.

Millennial Cervantes Book Excerpt:

Millennial Cervantes explores some of the most important recent trends in Cervantes scholarship in the twenty-first century. It brings together leading Cervantes scholars of the United States in order to showcase their cutting-edge work within a cultural studies frame that encompasses everything from ekphrasis to philosophy, from sexuality to Cold War political satire, and from the culinary arts to the digital humanities. Millennial Cervantes is divided into three sets of essays--conceptually organized around thematic and methodological lines that move outward in a series of concentric circles. The first group, focused on the concept of "Cervantes in his original contexts," features essays that bring new insights to these texts within the primary context of early modern Iberian culture. The second group, focused on the concept of "Cervantes in comparative contexts," features essays that examine Cervantes's works in conjunction with those of the English-speaking world, both seventeenth- and twentieth-century. The third group, focused on the concept of "Cervantes in wider cultural contexts," examines Cervantes's works--principally Don Quixote--as points of departure for other cultural products and wider intellectual debates. This collection articulates the state of Cervantes studies in the first two decades of the new millennium as we move further into a century that promises both unimagined technological advances and the concomitant cultural changes that will naturally adhere to this new technology, whatever it may be.

Rebel Chef Book Excerpt:

The inspiring and deeply personal memoir from highly acclaimed chef Dominique Crenn By the time Dominique Crenn decided to become a chef, at the age of twenty-one, she knew it was a near impossible dream in France where almost all restaurant kitchens were run by men. So, she left her home and everything she knew to move to San Francisco, where she would train under the legendary Jeremiah Tower. Almost thirty years later, Crenn was awarded three Michelin Stars in 2018 for her influential restaurant Atelier Crenn, and became the first female chef in the United States to receive this honor – no small feat for someone who hadn’t gone to culinary school or been formally trained. In Rebel Chef, Crenn tells of her untraditional coming-of-age as a chef, beginning with her childhood in Versailles where she was emboldened by her parents to be curious and independent. But there is another reason Crenn has always felt free to pursue her own unconventional course. Adopted as a toddler, she didn't resemble her parents or even look traditionally French. Growing up she often felt like an outsider, and was haunted by a past she knew nothing about. But after years of working to fill this blank space, Crenn has embraced the power her history gives her to be whoever she wants to be. Here is a disarmingly honest and revealing look at one woman's evolution from a daring young chef to a respected activist. Reflecting on the years she spent working in the male-centric world of professional kitchens, Crenn tracks her career from struggling cook to running one of the world’s most acclaimed restaurants, while at the same time speaking out on restaurant culture, sexism, immigration, and climate change. At once a tale of personal discovery and a tribute to unrelenting determination, Rebel Chef is the story of one woman making a place for herself in the kitchen, and in the world.

The Joy of Eating A Guide to Food in Modern Pop Culture Book Excerpt:

In 1961, Julia Child introduced the American public to an entirely new, joy-infused approach to cooking and eating food. In doing so, she set in motion a food renaissance that is still in full bloom today. Over the last six decades, food has become an increasingly more diverse, prominent, and joyful point of cultural interest. The Joy of Eating discusses in detail the current golden age of food in contemporary American popular culture. Entries explore the proliferation of food-themed television shows, documentaries, and networks; the booming popularity of celebrity chefs; unusual, exotic, decadent, creative, and even mundane food trends; and cultural celebrations of food, such as in festivals and music. The volume provides depth and academic gravity by tying each entry into broader themes and larger contexts (in relation to a food-themed reality show, for example, discussing the show's popularity in direct relation to a significant economic event), providing a brief history behind popular foods and types of cuisines and tracing the evolution of our understanding of diet and nutrition, among other explications.

The Political Relevance of Food Media and Journalism Book Excerpt:

Interrogating the intersections of food, journalism, and politics, this book offers a critical examination of food media and journalism, and its political potential against the backdrop of contemporary social challenges. Contributors analyze current and historic examples such as #BlackLivesMatter, COVID-19, climate change, Brexit, food sovereignty, and identity politics, highlighting how food media and journalism reach beyond the commercial imperatives of lifestyle journalism to negotiate nationalism, globalization, and social inequalities. The volume challenges the idea that food media/journalism are trivial and apolitical by drawing attention to the complex ways that storytelling about food has engaged political discourses in the past, and the innovative ways it is doing so today. Bringing together international scholars from a variety of disciplines, the book will be of great interest to scholars and students of journalism, communication, media studies, food studies, sociology, and anthropology.

Case Based Research in Tourism Travel Hospitality and Events Book Excerpt:

This book consolidates international, contemporary and topical case study based research in tourism, travel, hospitality and events. Case studies can make learning more attractive and interesting as well as enable students to understand the theory better and develop their analytical and problem-solving skills. Using industry as an open living lab, case study based research infuses scholars into real-world industry challenges and inspires them to theorise and advance our knowledge frontiers. The book includes international case studies that can help tourism scholars build and advance (new) theories and enrich their educational practices. Case studies are accompanied with a teaching note guiding scholars to integrate case studies into instruction. Dr Kirsten Holmes, Chair, Council for Australasian Tourism and Hospitality Education (CAUTHE) There is a vital need for contemporary and well-structured case studies for use in tourism teaching. By including case studies from Australasia and key destination regions in Asia, Europe, and the Caribbean, the book is helpful for tertiary teachers globally. Professor Xander Lub, President, EuroCHRIE The book inspires educators and students. The cases provide context to students learning and demonstrate the richness and variation of the industry. The book also clearly demonstrates how research can inform our teaching. Professor Brian King, Chair, THE-ICE Assessment Panel The book includes cases under five themes: experiences, operations, technologies, strategy and marketing, and destinations. The book provides subject lecturers with a structure to guide students of applying theory into practice. Dr Paul Whitelaw, Academic Director, Southern Cross University This book marks a significant contribution to hospitality, tourism and events pedagogy at undergraduate and postgraduate level. At a time when the industry is demanding that our graduates have a strong grasp of "real world issues", the case study approach provides an accessible, meaningful and relatable means by which students can engage in real world issues.

Eat Ink Book Excerpt:

Explore the connection between culinary inspiration and one of the world's oldest forms of rebel art! From James Beard Award winners, Top Chef competitors, and Food Network stars to prep cooks, interns, and sous chefs, few other people are more closely associated with tattoos than chefs. Professional kitchens have traditionally been an unseen haven for many of society's misfits, but recently they have been transformed into stages as the world's obsession with great food and great chefs continues to grow. Knuckle tattoos that once excluded a person from many careers have become a badge of honor and the tattoos are now a testament to their commitment to their craft. Eat Ink goes beyond their Michelin stars and chef's coats to explore what lies beneath: seasoned cooks who love preparing original plates and wear their tattoos proudly as they share the experiences that led them to the kitchen. Inside this cookbook, you'll discover a range of recipes as diverse as the chefs themselves, as well as personal details about the chef's remarkable journeys through the kitchen (and the tattoo parlor). From Lish Steiling's Roasted Parsnip and Kale Salad to Rick Tramonto's Gemelli with Chicken and Spring Herb Sauce to Duff Goldman's Pineapple Hummingbird Cake, each revealing profile offers a never-before-seen peek behind the kitchen door and into the mind of a chef. Complete with hundreds of full-color photographs and 60 delicious recipes from today's top chefs, Eat Ink invites you into their kitchens to sample some of world's best plates.

Knives Ink Book Excerpt:

From New York Times bestselling illustrator Wendy MacNaughton and bestselling author Isaac Fitzgerald--the stories behind the tattoos that chefs proudly wear, with their signature recipes. Winner of the International Association of Culinary Professionals [IACP] Cookbook Design Award. Chefs take their tattoos almost as seriously as their knives. From gritty grill cooks in backwoods diners to the executive chefs at the world's most popular restaurants, it's hard to find a cook who doesn't sport some ink. Knives & Ink features the tattoos of more than sixty-five chefs from all walks of life and every kind of kitchen, including 2014 James Beard Award-winner Jamie Bissonnette, Alaska-fishing-boat cook Mandy Lamb, Toro Bravo's John Gorham, and many more. Each tattoo has a rich, personal story behind it: Danny Bowien of Mission Chinese Food remembers his mother with fiery angel wings on his forearms, and Dominique Crenn of Michelin two-starred Atelier Crenn bears ink that reminds her to do “anything in life that you put your heart into.” Like the dishes these chefs have crafted over the years, these tattoos are beautiful works of art. Knives & Ink delves into the wide and wonderful world of chef tattoos and shares their fascinating backstories, along with personal recipes from many of the chefs.

A scientific and evidence-based lifestyle program designed to build cognitive resilience to help reduce the risk and even prevent Alzheimer’s disease through 7 key lifestyle factors. The Alzheimer’s Revolution challenges the misguided and disempowering belief that Alzheimer’s disease cannot be prevented or slowed. The book reveals that over half the Alzheimer’s cases today could be prevented by addressing just seven lifestyle factors that are within everyone’s ability to control. The Alzheimer's Revolution offers readers a research-based program that can dramatically reduce the risk of this devastating condition. Alzheimer’s disease is the number-one public health crisis of our time. Approximately 5.3 million Americans have Alzheimer’s. In 2021, an estimated 6.2 million Americans age 65 and older are living with Alzheimer's dementia. It’s time to turn our attention and resources toward prevention.
