This book is about the loss of a partner and your needs in a new role -- as an individual -- without a shared life -- no longer part of a unit. The book is divided in to four sections: Making a Start; Moving On; Feeling Comfortable; Creating a New Life. Each section centres on a theme meant to mirror needs or moods at a time when a new understanding of life is developing. Each focuses on the build-up of confidence coupled with the knowledge that life goes on despite the pain of loss and relates the stories of some who had to deal with the experience. Section One supplies helpful hints on starting out and offers dishes that may be dark or vivid, reflecting feelings of unease when venturing into a new and emotionally unfamiliar territory. Section Two focuses on the theme of moving forward and trying new ways to manage life as it is now; the host, who we hope is feeling better, might serve food that is lighter and brighter. The third section targets warmth and colour as hosting becomes more comfortable. Finally, in the fourth section, the goal of achieving new beginnings is linked with dinner party fare suggesting new crops and spring awakening. Each section offers suggested menus with recipes, including a generous sprinkling of vegetarian dishes, all designed to be easy to handle.

Known for his entertaining investigations into culinary practice, Massimo Montanari turns his hungry eye to the phenomenon of food culture, food lore, cooking methods, and eating habits throughout history. An irresistible buffet of one hundred concise and engaging essays, this collection provides stimulating food for thought for those curious about one of life's most fundamental pleasures.
Focusing on the selection, preparation, and mythology of food, Montanari traverses such subjects as the status of the pantry over the centuries, the various strategies of cooking over time, the gastronomy of famine, the science of flavors, the changing characteristics of convivial rituals, the customs of the table, and the ever-evolving identity of food. He shows that cooking not only is a decisive part of our cultural heritage but also communicates essential information about our material and intellectual well-being.
From the invention of basic bread making to chocolate's reputation for decadence, Montanari positions food culture as a lens through which we can plot changes in historical values and social and economic trends. Even the biblical tale of Jacob buying Esau's birthright for a bowl of lentils is a text full of essential meaning, representing civilization's important shift from a hunting to an agrarian society. Readers of all backgrounds will enjoy these delectable insights and their easy consumption in one companionable volume.

Green with envy; red-faced with embarrassment; in a blue mood; or in the pink: Colour "speaks" well before words. And Pantone (R) is the renowned authority on colour and colour communication, known to artists, designers, art directors, businesses and students around the world. Central to their understanding of colour are the subtle cues that affect how we relate to our environment and each other. Now, in collaboration with Italy's premiere cookbook publisher, Pantone brings its expertise on the relationship between colour and mood to the subject of food. Fifty-six step-by-step recipes are gathered around eight colours and their variations, including: Yellow (Tarte Citron); Magenta (Sea Bream Tartar with Rose Petals); Green (Savoury Asparagus Tart); Blue (Salad with Borage Flowers); Purple (Fox Grape Pudding); Orange (Tandoori Chicken with Basmati Rice); Red (Round Meringue with Wild Strawberries); and Brown (Coffee Semifreddo). Each recipe collection is introduced with an essay by a Pantone colour expert on that colour's mood-food connection. And each recipe is styled to perfection and photographed in Pantone's full-colour glory. Added features include 40 suggested menus combining colours for occasions (brunch, a children's party, happy hour, a dessert buffet); cuisines (Italian, Mediterranean, Japanese, French); meals for every season; and many other themes. Also included is an extensive guide to necessary equipment, utensils and ingredients. And 50 hand-drawn colour how-to sketches demonstrate styling and presentation techniques for preparing dazzling dishes in the home kitchen. With a sleek modern layout and design, Pantone Foodmood is bound in chic, black die-cut board. The ultimate concept cookbook - perfect for gift-giving - it will be coveted by cooks, food-lovers, Pantone devotees, and all those who love books beautifully made.

'Hormone balance is within reach, and this is the definitive guide for reaching that goal.'-David Perlmutter, MD, author of Grain Brain Prepare to thrive. As women approach menopause, many start to experience the physical and emotional indignities of hormonal fluctuation: metabolic stall and weight gain, hot flashes and night sweats, insomnia, memory loss or brain fog, irritability, low libido, and painful sex. Too often, doctors tell us that these discomforts are to be expected and that we will have to wait them out during "the change". But Dr Anna Cabeca's research and experience with thousands of her patients show that there is a fast-acting and non-pharmaceutical way to dramatically and permanently alleviate these symptoms. The Hormone Fix introduces Dr Cabeca's unique Keto-Green protocol, a plan that pairs the hallmarks of ketogenic (low-carb/high fat) eating with diet and lifestyle changes that bring the body's cellular pH to a healthy alkaline level. The proven result: balanced cortisol and reduced output of insulin, the hormones most responsible for belly fat and weight gain, plus an increase in oxytocin, the "love and happiness" hormone. Whether you are perimenopausal, menopausal, or postmenopausal, The Hormone Fix offers an easy-to-follow program, including - A 10-day quick-start detox diet to jump-start weight loss and reduce symptoms immediately - Daily meal plans and weekly shopping lists to take the guesswork out of a month's worth of Keto-Green eating - 65 delicious and easy-to-make recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, smoothies, and soups - Detailed information on vitamin and mineral supplementation that optimizes hormone balance and gut health - Simple self-assessments and recommended optional lab testing for a better understanding of your hormonal status - Tested and trusted stress-reduction and oxytocin-amplifying advice and techniques With The Hormone Fix you can expect to trim down, tap into new and unexpected energy levels, enhance intimacy, and completely revitalize your life!
