Kitchen Confidential Deluxe Edition Book Excerpt:

A new, deluxe edition of Kitchen Confidential to celebrate the life of Anthony Bourdain. The book will feature a brand new introduction, a Q&A with Ecco publisher and Bourdain’s long-time editor Daniel Halpern. Interior pages are hand-annotated by Anthony Bourdain himself. The interior will also feature a brand new drawing by Ralph Steadman. Almost two decades ago, the New Yorker published a now infamous article, “Don’t Eat before You Read This,” by then little-known chef Anthony Bourdain. Bourdain spared no one’s appetite as he revealed what happens behind the kitchen door. The article was a sensation, and the book it spawned, the now classic Kitchen Confidential, became an even bigger sensation, a megabestseller with over one million copies in print. Frankly confessional, addictively acerbic, and utterly unsparing, Bourdain pulls no punches in this memoir of his years in the restaurant business—this time with never-before-published material.

Summary of Kitchen Confidential Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly by Anthony Bourdain Conversation Starters Book Excerpt:

Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly by Anthony Bourdain: Conversation Starters "Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly" was written by American chef Anthony Bourdain in 2000. An updated edition was released in 2007, featuring new material. The book talks about Bourdain's personal life but also reveals behind-the-scenes stories from restaurant kitchens. The author describes the culinary industry as a sometimes hazardous workplace run by misfits, most of the time also unpleasant and intense. Bourdain believed that it's necessary for anyone who wants to enter the industry to have a somehow masochistic and irrational dedication to cooking. "Kitchen Confidential" was a New York Times bestseller and the starting point for Bourdain's popularity. In 2017, after the start of the Me Too movement, the author expressed remorse because of the book celebrating and enabling certain sexist behaviors. A Brief Look Inside: EVERY GOOD BOOK CONTAINS A WORLD FAR DEEPER than the surface of its pages. The characters and their world come alive, and the characters and its world still live on.

Ferran Book Excerpt:

The first-ever biography of Ferran Adrià, the chef behind Spain's renowned El Bulli restaurant, by one of the world's foremost food authorities. More than just the most influential chef of the late-twentieth and early-twenty- first century, Ferran Adrià is arguably the greatest culinary revolutionary of our time. Hailed as a genius and a prophet by fellow chefs, worshipped (if often misunderstood) by critics and lay diners alike, Adrià is imitated and paid homage to in professional kitchens, and more than a few private ones, all over the world. A reservation at his one and only restaurant, El Bulli, is so coveted that scoring a table is harder than nabbing fifty-yardline tickets to the Super Bowl. In his lively close-up portrait of Adrià, award-winning food writer Colman Andrews traces this groundbreaking chef's rise from resort-hotel dishwasher to culinary deity, and the evolution of El Bulli from a German-owned beach bar into the establishment voted annually by an international jury to be "the world's best restaurant." Taking the reader from Adrià's Franco-era childhood near Barcelona through El Bulli's wildly creative "disco-beach" days and into the modern-day creative wonderland of Adrià's restaurant kitchen and the workshop- laboratory where his innovations are born and refined, Andrews blends sweeping storytelling with culinary history to explore Adrià's extraordinary contributions to the way we eat. Through original techniques like deconstruction, spherification, and the creation of culinary foams and airs, Adrià has profoundly reimagined the basic characteristics of food's forms, while celebrating and intensifying the natural flavors of his raw materials. Yet, argues Andrews, these innovations may not be his most impressive achievements. Instead, Adrià's sheer creativity and courageous imagination are his true genius-a genius that transcends the chef's métier and can inspire and enlighten all of us. Entertaining and intimate, Ferran brings to life the most exciting food movement of our time and illuminates the ways in which Adrià has changed our world- forever altering our understanding and appreciation of food and cooking.

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 Internet of Things revised and updated edition Book Excerpt:

A guided tour of the rapidly evolving networked world of connected devices, objects, and people that is changing the way we live and work. Since the publication of the original edition of this volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series, the Internet of Things (IoT) has evolved from a novelty (look! my phone connects to my lamp!) to a mainstream technology framework that we rely on every day to accomplish many tasks. This revised and updated edition reports on the latest developments in this rapidly evolving networked world of connected devices, objects, and people that is changing the way we live and work. Business and technology writer Samuel Greengard takes us on a guided tour of the IoT, describing smart lightbulbs, sensors in phones that trigger earthquake warnings, 3D headsets that connect users to business expos through completely immersive virtual reality environments, and more. He offers a clear explanation of the technology that builds and manages the IoT and examines the growing array of consumer devices now available, from smart door locks to augmented reality fitting rooms. Greengard also shows how the IoT is part of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which is transforming business through smart manufacturing, end-to-end supply chain visibility, integrated artificial intelligence, and much more. He considers risks associated with the IoT, including threats to free speech, growing inequality, and an increase in cybercrime. Finally, he takes a look at the future of a hyperconnected world and what it means to people and human interaction.

Buffy Season 10 Library Edition Book Excerpt:

The cult-favorite television series from creator Joss Whedon continues in comics with Season 10, where Buffy and the Scoobies are rewriting the rules of magic and monsters . . . This oversized Library Edition collects the materials from Buffy Season 10 Volume 1 and Volume 2 softcovers, along with all the comic book covers, and an expanded sketchbook section. While slaying the zompires that have overrun a small California town, Buffy and her pals are shocked to discover another new kind of vampire: harder to kill, able to transform, and walk in the light of day--like Dracula . . . If that weren't enough, the rules of magic are literally being rewritten in the Vampyr book. The crew attempts to restore the status quo, all while Xander is the victim of a haunting, his relationship with Dawn begins to crumble, and Dracula himself enters the picture. Then when the Vampyr book goes missing--now a highly coveted item--Buffy and the Scoobies head for what might be a disaster in Sunnydale where Andrew is up to his good/bad/old tricks again. As everyone feels the responsibility of protecting the book and writing the new magical rules, they are tempted by what new rules can do for them . . . just like the Big Bads who have come knocking on Buffy's door! Writers Christos Gage (Angel & Faith) and Buffy star Nicholas Brendon team with artist Rebekah Isaacs (Angel & Faith) to take on the Slayer and her teammates in her tenth season; they're joined by guest artists Richard Corben (Hellboy), Karl Moline (Fray), and Cliff Richards (Dollhouse).
