In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, French cooks began to claim central roles in defining and enforcing taste, as well as in educating their diners to changing standards. Tracing the transformation of culinary trades in France during the Revolutionary era, Jennifer J. Davis argues that the work of cultivating sensibility in food was not simply an elite matter; it was essential to the livelihood of thousands of men and women.
Combining rigorous archival research with social history and cultural studies, Davis analyzes the development of cooking aesthetics and practices by examining the propagation of taste, the training of cooks, and the policing of the culinary marketplace in the name of safety and good taste. French cooks formed their profession through a series of debates intimately connected to broader Enlightenment controversies over education, cuisine, law, science, and service. Though cooks assumed prominence within the culinary public sphere, the unique literary genre of gastronomy replaced the Old Regime guild police in the wake of the French Revolution as individual diners began to rethink cooks' authority. The question of who wielded culinary influence -- and thus shaped standards of taste -- continued to reverberate throughout society into the early nineteenth century.
This remarkable study illustrates how culinary discourse affected French national identity within the country and around the globe, where elite cuisine bears the imprint of the country's techniques and labor organization.

Louisiana s identity is inextricably tied to its famous foods; gumbo, red beans and rice, jambalaya, and etouffee are among the delicious dishes that locals cherish and visitors remember.

Wine and the wine trade are steeped in culture and history; few products have consistently enjoyed both cultural importance and such wide distribution over time-even seen by some as "an elixir of life". While wine has been produced and consumed for centuries, what is distinctive about the economics of wine? Professor Marks's book is an accessible exploration of the economics of wine, using both basic principles and specialized topics and emphasizing microeconomics and related research. Drawing upon economic themes such as International Trade and Public Choice, Wine and Economics also relates economic reasoning to management issues in wine markets. The discussion ranges from economic fundamentals and wine and government, to the challenge of knowing what is in the bottle and the importance of wine as a cultural good. This novel and comprehensive introduction to the subject is an invaluable resource for students, scholars and anyone interested in wine and the wine industry.

After the success of the UK s #1 best selling student cookbook, NOSH for Students , we wanted to offer a follow-on book for those who had grown in confidence in the kitchen. We have imaginatively called this NOSH for Students Volume 2!! NOSH Volume 2 is the perfect partner to our original book and is designed for those wanting to move on to slightly more adventurous recipes, but who still want the simple approach to cooking that runs through all the NOSH books. Nobody in your house has weighing scales? That s OK. All you need in NOSH student books are a few spoons and a mug. Want to see what you are aiming for? There are photos with every recipe, to whet your appetite and inspire you to have a go. Are you still on a tight budget? We have priced up every recipe, so no more surprises at the till in the supermarket. Finished all the recipes in NOSH for Students? Here are a whole heap of new ones to have a go at.Sorry to cause confusion with this book and the previous book NOSH for Graduates. We have now updated the description of this book to explain things a little clearer. This replaces the previous, now discontinued, book NOSH for Graduates. We loved NOSH for Graduates, but it never managed to reach as many people as we would have liked in its previous format. So we decided to substantially revamp the book to make it perfect for our students and VOLUME 2 WAS BORN?! We hope this clears up any confusion. Thanks The NOSH Family.

A travelbook? A cookbook? Something more: a cook-travel-book, a perfect and complete guide to discover London, its restaurants and the chefs recipes, the best boutique hotels, the family attractions, the places for shopping and where to eats with less than 15 pounds.A book designed for cook-lovers and for those who loves London and wants to know more about this amazing city. "The first time I came to London I hated it: three days of rain, a hotel room to be forgotten and awful food. But my job of journalist has brought me back here at least once a year from that first journey in 2001, and year after year I fell in love with this city, so much so that today I can not stay away for more than six months.London revealed itself to me as a beautiful but not easy woman, and perhaps it is precisely for this reason that today I'm crazy for it. I discovered a piece at a time, and the more I walked away from the tourist places - though I love them - the more grew the desire to stay here and dedicate a book to this city. A book that, in spite of the bad food eaten in 2001, disassembles a thesis very popular in Italy and maybe in other countries, according to which you can't eat well in London. Thanks to this book I found amazing restaurants, great chefs, lovely places to dine, places where you can eat great lunches at affordable prices.And no other city in the world, with the exception of New York, offers such a variety of international cuisines with this very high quality standards. I have spent two years writing this book, at times this was intense and engaging, exciting and ambitious, and has allowed me to meet many new friends from all over the world. And at the end the result, in reality, is not a book. It's a declaration of love. Yes London, I love you. Every other word would be superfluous".
Zola Nene has become quite a force on the South African culinary scene, yet her personal quest to show people that cooking great food needn’t be pretentious or difficult continues in her new book.
Simply Delicious was a triumph and now, as Zola says herself, ‘My food journey is ever evolving and is a continuation of my life journey told through food,’ and so Simply Zola is the mouth-watering result.
The dishes (and drinks) are simple to prepare and each is a taste sensation. Zola doesn’t do bland or shy, so prepare to be swept away by the likes of Barley, grape and pecan nut salad, Prawn, lemon and chilli linguini, Cola-braised beef short ribs, and Rocky road waffles with salted caramel sauce. For those of you always complaining that it’s impossible to cook properly for one, there’s a chapter devoted just to that, while the lazy among you will be cheered by a chapter of one-pot dishes. There’s even a chapter for those who want taste without the gluten.

Letter from JoyI discovered that I was 'gluten intolerant' a couple of years ago whilst I was writing 'Nosh Gluten-Free'. Friends had asked me to write a gluten-free book, but during the process, I realised that the stomach pains, which I had thought were due to medication I was taking, were significantly relieved when I cut out gluten from my diet. I was glad to find the cause of the problem, but knew that this would make life challenging! So I began my journey of gluten-free living with the book 'NOSH Gluten-Free' to help me and now I have added this latest book, 'NOSH Gluten-Free Baking'. I have to be frank and say that the 'Baking' book has been the hardest book I have ever written; I have never had to deal with so many failed attempts in all my years of cooking! For instance, bread depends on gluten for its elasticity and 'bounce'. I must have made about 50 different breads, all of which ended up in the bin, before coming up with the new ones in this book, and my quest still goes on to find more. During the process of writing this book, one of the highlights would definitely be the puff pastry recipe. When that pastry came out of the oven, with its distinct, crispy layers, I could have done a little jig in the kitchen, right there and then! When we find we are gluten intolerant, or 'coeliac', it can seem like a 'life sentence of no treats'. We go into a cafe for coffee and cake and often find there is nothing we can eat - all the 'yummy'-looking ones are full of gluten! My aim in this book has been to reverse the 'sentence'. I have tried to include recipes for the many things we might like to eat in the coffee shops, as well as the regular desserts and savoury pastries that seemed to be 'forbidden'. I hope that you enjoy cooking and eating many of these re-found treats.
