Everyone thinks they know the real Gordon Ramsay: rude, loud, pathologically driven, stubborn as hell. But this is his bestselling real story... Humble Pie tells the full story of how he became the world's most famous and infamous chef: his difficult childhood, his brother's heroin addiction and his failed first career as a footballer: all of these things have made him the celebrated culinary talent and media powerhouse that he is today. Gordon talks frankly about: * his tough childhood: his father's alcoholism and violence and the effects on his relationships with his mother and siblings, * his first career as a footballer: how the whole family moved to Scotland when he was signed by Glasgow Rangers at the age of fifteen, and how he coped when his career was over due to injury just three years later, * his brother's heroin addiction. * Gordon's early career: learning his trade in Paris and London; how his career developed from there: his time in Paris under Albert Roux and his seven Michelin-starred restaurants. * Kitchen life: Gordon spills the beans about life behind the kitchen door, and how a restaurant kitchen is run in Anthony Bourdain-style. * How he copes with the impact of fame on himself and his family: his television career, the rapacious tabloids, and his own drive for success.

Growing up in small-town South Africa, Sophia Lindop mostly felt like an outsider but she always told people, with great pride, that she was Lebanese. As a child, her only link to the mysterious country called Lebanon, the country she was told they came from, was through its food. After school and on weekends, it was in the kitchens of the women in her family that she found her belonging, and it was in those flavours that she found her identity. A promise to her Dad in the dark hours of the night on which he left earth took her to the land of her forefathers.
She was going home. Going Home tells the stories behind the rich Lebanese food culture.
Come and be seated at Sophia’s Lebanese table and relish the meaning of life – togetherness, sharing, laughter, and above all, good food.

In John Kennedy Toole's iconic novel, Ignatius J. Reilly is never short of opinions about food or far away from his next bite. Whether issuing gibes such as ""canned food is a perversion,"" or taking a break from his literary ambitions with ""an occasional cheese dip,"" this lover of Lucky Dogs, cafe au lait, and wine cakes navigates 1960s New Orleans focused on gastronomical pursuits. For the novel's millions of fans, Cynthia LeJeune Nobles's A Confederacy of Dunces Cookbook offers recipes inspired by the delightfully commonplace and always delicious fare of Ignatius and his cohorts. Through an informative narrative and almost 200 recipes, Nobles explores the intersection of food, history, and culture found in the Pulitzer Prize--winning novel, opening up a new avenue into New Orleans's rich culinary traditions. Dishes inspired by Ignatius's favorites -- macaroons and ""toothsome"" steak -- as well as recipes based on supporting characters -- Officer Mancuso's Pork and Beans and Dr. Talc's Bloody Marys -- complement a wealth of fascinating detail about the epicurean side of the novel's memorable settings. A guide to the D. H. Holmes Department Store's legendary Chicken Salad, the likely offerings of the fictitious German's Bakery, and an in-depth interview with the general manager of Lucky Dogs round out this delightful cookbook. A lighthearted yet impeccably researched look at the food of the 1960s, A Confederacy of Dunces Cookbook reaffirms the singularity and timelessness of both New Orleans cuisine and Toole's comic tour de force.
The definitive history of an iconic American food, with new chapters, sidebars, and updated historical accounts The full story of barbecue in the United States had been virtually untold before Robert F. Moss revealed its long, rich history in his 2010 book Barbecue: The History of an American Institution. Moss researched hundreds of sources-newspapers, letters, journals, diaries, and travel narratives-to document the evolution of barbecue from its origins among Native Americans to its present status as an icon of American culture. He mapped out the development of the rich array of regional barbecue styles, chronicled the rise of barbecue restaurants, and profiled the famed pitmasters who made the tradition what it is today. Barbecue is the story not just of a dish but also of a social institution that helped shape many regional cultures of the United States. The history begins with British colonists' adoption of barbecuing techniques from Native Americans in the 17th and 18th centuries, moves to barbecue's establishment as the preeminent form of public celebration in the 19th century, and is carried through to barbecue's ubiquitous standing today. From the very beginning, barbecues were powerful social magnets, drawing together people from a wide range of classes and geographic backgrounds. Barbecue played a key role in three centuries of American history, both reflecting and influencing the direction of an evolving society. By tracing the story of barbecue from its origins to today, Barbecue: The History of an American Institution traces the very thread of American social history. Moss has made significant updates in this new edition, offering a wealth of new historical research, sources, illustrations, and anecdotes.
Tapas with Liam Tomlin is about the style of food that Liam likes to cook and the way he likes to eat, with lots of different tastes, textures and cooking styles.
After so many years in professional kitchens, Liam wanted a departure from the formal structure of restaurants with reservations, stuffy service and fixed menus that are repeated day after day. At Chefs Warehouse, he has moved away from food with too many layers, and components added simply for the sake of adding them. His way of cooking is focused on technique and on extracting as much flavour as possible to create tasty and well balanced dishes. The tapas recipes are not intimidating, only delicious. As Andy Fenner,owner of Frankie Fenner Meat Merchants says: ‘Liam has the crew do it every day. This book will show you how to do it at home.’
This second edition of Tapas with Liam Tomlin is now available to everyone as the first, self-published edition was only available at Liam’s restaurants.
Contents: This book isn’t divided into formal chapters; instead it takes the cook on a tempting and sensory-delighting meander through tapas for every occasion. There is also an extensive and educating glossary of culinary terms.
In the 1920s Prohibition was the law, but ignoring it was the norm, especially in New Orleans. While popular writers such as F. Scott Fitzgerald invented partygoers who danced from one cocktail to the next, real denizens of the French Quarter imbibed their way across the city. Bringing to life the fiction of flappers with tastes beyond bathtub gin, Shaking Up Prohibition in New Orleans: Authentic Vintage Cocktails from A to Z serves up recipes from the era of the speakeasy. Originally assembled by Olive Leonhardt and Hilda Phelps Hammond around 1929, this delightful compendium applauds the city's irrepressible love for cocktails in the format of a classic alphabet book. Leonhardt, a noted artist, illustrated each letter of the alphabet, while Hammond provided cocktail recipes alongside tongue-in-cheek poems that jab at the dubious scenario of a ""dry"" New Orleans. A cultural snapshot of the Crescent City's resistance to Prohibition, this satirical, richly illustrated book brings to life the spirit and spirits of a jazz city in the Jazz Age. With an introduction on Prohibition-era New Orleans by historian John Magill and biographical profiles of Leonhardt and Hammond by editor Gay Leonhardt, readers can fully appreciate the setting and the personalities behind this vintage cocktail guide with a Big Easy bent. A perfect gift for lovers (and makers) of craft cocktails, arbiters of style, and celebrants of the Crescent City, Shaking Up Prohibition in New Orleans captures the essence of the Roaring Twenties.

The hungrily awaited sixth volume in the Cornbread Nation series
tells the story of the American South--circa now--through the prism
of its food and the people who grow, make, serve, and eat it. The
modern South serves up a groaning board of international cuisines
virtually unknown to previous generations of Southerners, notes
Brett Anderson in his introduction. Southern food, like the
increasingly globalized South, shows an open and cosmopolitan
attitude toward ethnic diversity. But fully appreciating Southern
food still requires fluency with the region's history, warts and
all. The essays, memoirs, poetry, and profiles in this book are
informed by that fluency, revealing topics and people traditional
as well as avant garde, down home as well as urbane.
The many influences of the past on our diet today make the concept of 'British food' very hard to define. The Celts, Romans, Saxons, Vikings and Normans all brought ingredients to the table, as it were, and onwards the Crusades gave us all manner of spices. The Georgians enjoyed a new level of excess and then of course the world wars forced us into the challenge of making meals from very little. This brand new addition, and fourth volume, to Tasting the Past, documents the rich history of our food, its fads and its fashions, to be combined with a practical cookbook of over xxx recipes from the Second World War onwards.
