A robust and inspiring travel companion for both local and visiting food-lovers alike that reveals the stories, inspiration, and friendly faces of the people who craft great food in Saskatchewan. From the province's southern grain fields to its northern boreal forests, from its city markets to its small-town diners, Saskatchewan is the humble heartland of some of the nation's most delicious food. Author Jenn Sharp and photographer Richard Marjan spent four months travelling Saskatchewan, chatting at market stalls, in kitchens, bottling sheds, and stockrooms. Flat Out Delicious is the culmination of interviews with small-scale farmers and city gardeners, beekeepers and chocolatiers, ranchers, chefs, and winemakers. Together they tell the story of Saskatchewan's unique food systems. The journey is organized into seven regions (including a chapter each for restaurant hotbeds Regina and Saskatoon), with essays that delve deeper--into traditional Indigenous moose hunts, wild rice farming in the remote north, and berry picking in the south. There are profiles of over 150 artisans, along with detailed maps, travel tips, and stunning photography, making the book the ideal companion for a road trip that involves plenty of stopping to eat along the way. You'll meet a lettuce-grower who left a career in the city, and the small-town grad who worked his way up in the Saskatoon restaurant world; couples who are the first in their families to raise livestock, alongside new generations maintaining century-old operations. Whether you're visiting for the first time or are Saskatchewan born and bred, prepare to be surprised by the abundance of personalities and culinary experiences to be found here in the land of living skies.

Savoring Gotham traces the rise of New York City's global culinary stardom in 570 accessible, yet well-researched A-Z entries. From the Native Americans who arrived in the area 5,000 years before New York was New York, and who planted the maize, squash, and beans that European and other settlers to the New World embraced centuries later, to Greek diners in the city that are arguably not diners at all, this is the first A-Z reference work to take a broad and historically-informed approach to NYC food and drink. Here readers will find entries on the foods and drinks and businesses that originated in the city, ethnic culinary influences, the unique character of each borough (and several neighborhoods within the boroughs), important educational, cultural, and publishing institutions related to food in the city, biographies of key culinary leaders (both living and deceased), and selections from the city's food manufacturers, food importers, and restaurants. There are also entries on New York's more unusual culinary realities, such as urban farming, dumpster diving, and the phenomenon of foraging for food in Central Park. Savoring Gotham is for anyone interested in learning the history of what is perhaps the world's greatest food mecca; not only the foodie history of upscale restaurants and celebrity chefs, but the bodegas, chop suey joints, automats, and Italian ice vendors that are a part of New York's culinary heritage. Around 100 images accompany the entries. All of the entries are signed by the authors. Garrett Oliver, the Brewmaster of Brooklyn Brewery and one of New York's great ambassadors, wrote the Foreword; an index and a bibliography of the best writings on NYC food and drink complete the book.

'As smooth as oil, sweet as milk, clear as amber and strong as brandy.' Boniface, in George Farquhar's play The Beaux Stratagem, describing Lichfield ale. Farquhar was one of the visitors to Lichfield in the eighteenth century when the city was notorious for its many pubs and brothels. Today, thankfully, only its pubs are famous and continue to add colour to this fine Georgian city. The great medieval cathedral forms a magnificent backdrop to the many pubs of the city, some of which were visited by Lichfield's most famous son, Samuel Johnson, whose brooding statue can be found in the city's market square. Many of Lichfield's ancient pubs, some of them old coaching inns from the days of stagecoaches and highwaymen, are still in existence; others, sadly, have gone. This book tells the story of those lost pubs - where they were and why they disappeared - as well as examining those that still grace the city, tracking their history through the centuries and telling their many uplifting, sad, and sometimes strange stories. Find out about haunted pubs, the pub where an army regiment was founded and the two rival inns where political parties encouraged mob violence in the street that separated them. Lichfield Pubs is a book that residents and visitors alike will not want to miss.
