'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.

What's for lunch? on the Iron range, one answer with the weight of history is a pasty-- ground meat and vegetables folded into a pastry crust. Make your way along Eat Street in Minneapolis and encounter the Somali sambusa, the Mexican torta, or the Vietnamese banh mi. Stop by a Scandinavian hot spot to find the traditional open-faced sandwich, assembled with fresh fish and vegetables and herbs. The variety of sandwich options in a state that's home to dozens of ethnic groups is truly something to behold.
But beyond being our daily bread, sandwiches carry stories, whether of cultural traditions, immigrant adaptations, or upscale improvisation. a team from the Twin Cities-based online food magazine the Heavy Table--James Norton, Jill Lewis, Susan pagani, and Lori Writer--fanned out across the state to sample the usual suspects, from the walleye sandwich to the jucy lucy and beyond, chatting with chefs, church ladies, fisherfolk, turkey farmers, and bartenders along the way. The result, Minnesota Lunch, serves up an unconventional regional history loaded with culinary anecdotes, treasured recollections, tasty recipes, and tempting photographs. Sliced bread, french rolls, fried pastry--regardless of the wrapper, these many sandwiches offer flavorful responses and a Minnesota slant to that age-old noontime dilemma.
James Norton is editor of the Heavy Table online food magazine and a coauthor of The Master Cheesemakers of Wisconsin. a weekly columnist for CHOW.com, he also has written about food for Saveur.com, Minnesota Monthly, and City Pages.

Each of the ten itineraries in this cookbook/guidebook takes
readers through parts of Tuscany that still remain largely
undiscovered and into the kitchens of more than fifty superb but
little-known restaurants specializing in regional cuisine-those
that are for the most part overlooked by tourists and known only to
the locals. Each regional section begins with illuminating and
absorbing explanations of what makes Tuscan cooking so unique:
location, location, location. You'll read about a bean so beloved
by a village that it's been elevated to cult status-but unknown a
few kilometers down the road; an aboriginal baby lamb that is
almost unknown outside of the Zeri valley; the endless array of
vegetable tarts found nowhere in Tuscany but Lunigiana and
Garfagnana. With this guide in hand, you'll not only know where to
dine but what to order when you get there.
