London is one of the world's greatest cities. It's iconic and dynamic; a vibrant city where the past and present meet in an explosion of art and culture. It's also a city that is constantly on the move. From its earliest explorers, London has never been afraid to venture to new worlds and discover new and wonderful things. This hasn't changed through the centuries. London continues to create and innovate with cutting edge ideas, especially in its food scene where you can literally taste the world from its diverse offerings, or even be transported to another world completely! Likewise with London's libations. Pubs are the beating heart of London and there's practically one on every corner (kind of like churches in Rome). But the beverages on offer would make any heart beat faster. And once you're full of good food and wine, it's time to hit the shops and enter another stratosphere altogether. Oliver Twist's immortal question has never been more resonant, because you'll definitely want to have more of London! This book features the best eating, drinking and shopping across 18 London precincts, including Covent Garden, King's Cross, Soho and Piccadilly. Precinct maps make this a handy and useful guidebook, while the hardback cover creates a beautiful keepsake. London Precincts is the 6th book in Hardie Grant Travel's Precinct series, which has been shortlisted for the 1010 Printing Best Designed Series (Including Classics) award in the 2016 Australian Book Design Awards. The winners will be announced on Friday 13 May in Melbourne.

The port of Kingston upon Hull is one of England's most historical and diverse cities, and boasts a wealth of taverns, inns, alehouses and public houses. Most of the older drinking establishments that have survived have stories to tell - frequently quirky or surprising, always interesting and often with nautical links, given the city's associations over the centuries with the fishing and shipbuilding industries. Author and historian Paul Chrystal takes the reader on a fascinating tour around some of the watering holes in the city and its surrounding villages, relating historical facts and dubious tales on subjects as diverse as the English Civil War, Philip Larkin, maritime matters and the slave trade. This book explores the histories and secrets, and tells of the many characters that have frequented or run the city's public houses. Hull Pubs will make locals and visitors alike want to visit at least one one of the city's venerable old taverns in the year Hull celebrates being UK City of Culture, and long afterwards.
Buffalo isn't just a city full of great wings. There is a great hot dog tradition, from Greek- originated "Texas red hots" to year-round charcoal-grilling at Ted's that puts Manhattan's dirty water dogs to shame. This is also a city of great sandwiches. It's a place where capicola gets layered on grilled sausage, where sauteed dandelions traditionally make up the greens in a comestible called steak- in-the-grass, and chicken fingers pack into soft Costanzo's sub rolls with Provolone, tomato, lettuce, blue cheese dressing, and Frank's RedHot Sauce to become something truly naughty. Food and travel writer Arthur Bovino ate his research, taking the reader to the bars, the old-school Polish and Italian-American eateries, the Burmese restaurants, and the new-school restaurants tapping into the region's rich agricultural bounty. With all this experience under his belt (and stretching it), Bovino has created the essential guide to food in Buffalo.
Southwark is one of London's oldest and most intriguing neighbourhoods; a hotbed of culture and commerce that has played a major part in the development of the capital. Its streets were familiar to Shakespeare and Dickens, both of whom surely drank, schemed and dreamed in the many inns and taverns that abounded. This is where Chaucer's pilgrims began their long march to Canterbury, and many centuries later it was a major terminus for the many coaches that served the south of England. Four hundred years ago Londoners flocked to the area to watch the latest Shakespeare play at the Globe, or perhaps to visit one of the area's numerous brothels. Bear-baiting and dogfighting were popular attractions, too. People still pour into the area, although these days in search of more innocent pleasures such as high art at the Tate Modern, the foodie haven that is Borough Market or to catch a performance at the recreated Globe on Bankside. The one thing that has remained the same across the centuries is the diversity and quality of the area's many pubs. Southwark Pubs offers an historical guide to some of the borough's most fascinating hostelries, from London's last surviving galleried coaching inn to the Thameside tavern that waved the Pilgrim Fathers off on their first voyage to America. There is a drop of liquid London history for the lover of ale and anecdote alike.
"Cafe Indiana" is both a guide to Indiana's hometown mom-and-pop
restaurants and a reclamation and celebration of small-town Midwest
culture. The hungry diner looking for adventure and authenticity
can use "Cafe Indiana" simply as a guide to the state's
quintessential eats: the best fiddlers, macaroni and cheese, soup
beans, and beef Manhattan. But Stuttgen also captures the spirit of
the locals, bringing to life the people whose stories give the
book--and the food--its soul.

WINNER OF THE DRINK BOOK AWARD AT THE FORTNUM & MASON FOOD AND DRINK AWARDS 2017. Pete Brown has visited hundreds of pubs across the UK and is uniquely placed to write about pubs that ooze atmosphere, whatever the reason, be it food, people, architecture, location or decor. The best pubs are those that always have a steady trade at any time on any day of the week, and where chat flows back and forth across the bar. They're the places where you want to drink weak beer so you can have several pints and stay longer. Some are grand Victorian palaces, others ancient inns with stunning views across the hills. Some are ale shrines, others gastropubs (though they probably don't call themselves that any more). A precious few are uniquely eccentric, the kinds of places that are just as likely to have terrible reviews on Trip Advisor as great ones, because some people don't realize that the outside toilets, limp sandwiches on the bar and really disturbing full-size mannequin glaring at you from the corner are all part of the charm. This charming collection of 300 pubs explores what makes each one ooze atmosphere, be it food, people, architecture, location or decor, and looks at the quirks of local history as well as different trends and types of pub. Full of pen portraits of punters or publicans, legends, yarns and myths, this entertaining book is the perfect gift for regulars of that well-loved British institution, the pub.
Seattle Chef's Table is the first cookbook to gather Seattle's best chefs and restaurants under one cover.

Ever since it was the starting point for voyages of discovery to the New World, the old port of Bristol has boasted a wealth of taverns, inns, alehouses, and public houses. Most of the older drinking establishments that have survived have stories to tell - frequently quirky or surprising, but always interesting and often with nautical links. Some involve real historical figures such as Daniel Defoe and Alexander Selkirk, the model for Robinson Crusoe, while others are connected with fictional characters like Long John Silver. And some were used by smugglers, press gangs, privateers and out-and-out pirates. Local author James MacVeigh takes the reader on a fascinating journey through some of Bristol's oldest and most notorious watering holes. He explores their histories and hidden secrets and tells of the many characters that have frequented or run the city's public houses.
