<b><b><b>NATIONAL BESTSELLER</b> </b>• Fight cancer, diabetes, heart disease, weight gain, and even the aging process itself with one simple, scientifically proven plan to reverse disease—as well as prevent and reduce symptoms—from the world-renowned pioneer of lifestyle medicine.</b><br /><br /> Dean Ornish, M.D., has directed revolutionary research proving, for the first time, that lifestyle changes can often reverse—undo!—the progression of many of the most common and costly chronic diseases and even begin reversing aging at a cellular level.<br /><br /> Medicare and many insurance companies now cover Dr. Ornish’s lifestyle medicine program for reversing chronic disease because it consistently achieves bigger changes in lifestyle, better clinical outcomes, larger cost savings, and greater adherence than have ever been reported—based on forty years of research published in the leading peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals.<br /><br /> Now, in this landmark book, he and Anne Ornish present a simple yet powerful new unifying theory explaining why these same lifestyle changes can reverse so many different chronic diseases and how quickly these benefits occur. They describe what it is, why it works, and how you can do it:<br /><br /> <i>• Eat well</i>: a whole foods, plant-based diet naturally low in fat and sugar and high in flavor. The “Ornish diet” has been rated “#1 for Heart Health” by <i>U.S. News & World Report</i> every year from 2011 to 2017. <br /> <i>• Move more</i>: moderate exercise such as walking<br /> <i>• Stress less</i>: including meditation and gentle yoga practices<br /> <i>• Love more</i>: how love and intimacy transform loneliness into healing<br /><br />With seventy recipes, easy-to-follow meal plans, tips for stocking your kitchen and eating out, recommended exercises, stress-reduction advice, and inspiring patient stories of life-transforming benefits—for example, several people improved so much after only nine weeks they were able to avoid a heart transplant—<i>Undo It! </i>empowers readers with new hope and new choices.<br /><br /><b>Praise for</b> <i><b>Undo It!</b></i><br /><br /> “The Ornishes’ work is elegant and simple and deserving of a Nobel Prize, since it can change the world!”<b>—Richard Carmona, M.D., MPH, FACS, seventeenth Surgeon General of the United States</b><br /><br /> “If you want to see what medicine will be like ten years from now, read this book today.”<b>—Rita F. Redberg, M.D., editor in chief, <i>JAMA Internal Medicine</i></b><br /><br /> “This is one of the most important books on health ever written.”<b>—John Mackey, CEO, Whole Foods Market</b>

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • Trailblazing food writer and beloved restaurant critic Ruth Reichl took the job (and the risk) of a lifetime when she entered the high-stakes world of magazine publishing. Now, for the first time, she chronicles her groundbreaking tenure as editor in chief of <i>Gourmet.</i></b><br /><b><br />“A must for any food lover . . . Reichl is a warm, intimate writer. She peels back the curtain to a glamorous time of magazine-making. You’ll tear through this memoir.”—<i>Refinery29</i> (The Best New Books of April 2019)</b><br /><br /> When Condé Nast offered Ruth Reichl the top position at America’s oldest epicurean magazine, she declined. She was a writer, not a manager, and had no inclination to be anyone’s boss. Yet Reichl had been reading <i>Gourmet</i> since she was eight; it had inspired her career. How could she say no?<br /><br /> This is the story of a former Berkeley hippie entering the corporate world and worrying about losing her soul. It is the story of the moment restaurants became an important part of popular culture, a time when the rise of the farm-to-table movement changed, forever, the way we eat. Readers will meet legendary chefs like David Chang and Eric Ripert, idiosyncratic writers like David Foster Wallace, and a colorful group of editors and art directors who, under Reichl’s leadership, transformed stately <i>Gourmet </i>into a cutting-edge publication. This was the golden age of print media—the last spendthrift gasp before the Internet turned the magazine world upside down.<br /><br /> Complete with recipes, <i>Save Me the Plums</i> is a personal journey of a woman coming to terms with being in charge and making a mark, following a passion and holding on to her dreams—even when she ends up in a place she never expected to be.<br /><br /><b>Praise for </b><i><b>Save Me the Plums</b></i><br /><br />“Poignant and hilarious . . . simply delicious . . . Each serving of magazine folklore is worth savoring. In fact, Reichl’s story is juicier than a Peter Luger porterhouse. Dig in.”<b>—<i>The New York Times Book Review</i></b><br /><br /> “In this smart, touching, and dishy memoir . . . Ruth Reichl recalls her years at the helm of <i>Gourmet</i> magazine with clear eyes, a sense of humor, and some very appealing recipes.”<b>—<i>Town & Country</i> (The Must-Read Books of Spring 2019)</b><br /><br />“If you haven’t picked up food writing queen Ruth Reichl’s new book, <i>Save Me the Plums</i>, I highly recommend you fix that problem. . . . Reichl is in top form and ready to dish, with every chapter seeming like a dedicated behind-the-scenes documentary on its own.”<b>—Soleil Ho, <i>San Francisco Chronicle</i></b>

<p><strong>Finalist for the James Beard Foundation Book Award and the IACP Cookbook Award<br /><br /><br /><br />"[A]s good a read on the science of cooking as there is." —Mark Bittman, author of <em>How to Cook Everything</em></strong></p><br /><p>“Wolke, longtime professor of chemistry and author of the <em>Washington Post</em> column Food 101, turns his hand to a Cecil Adams style compendium of questions and answers on food chemistry. Is there really a difference between supermarket and sea salt? How is sugar made? Should cooks avoid aluminum pans? Interspersed throughout Wolke’s accessible and humorous answers to these and other mysteries are recipes demonstrating scientific principles. There is gravy that avoids lumps and grease; Portuguese Poached Meringue that demonstrates cream of tartar at work; and juicy Salt-Seared Burgers…With its zest for the truth, this book will help cooks learn how to make more intelligent choices.” —<em>Publishers Weekly</em></p>

Grazing is an enchanting way to eat. It means skipping from dish to dish, tasting different things without committing to a single one. It’s about creating multiple dishes that work together as a meal, that all share a theme, an aesthetic. When she entertains, or even pulls together a quick dinner for just two, food stylist Suzanne Lenzer enjoys this tapas-style of eating—and with her guidance, you can too. <br /><br />When it comes to making small plates at home, start with cheese and charcuterie, but then combine this classic with a few easy dishes that make a meal special. Try your hand at fun, fast recipes like chickpea fries with Meyer lemon-scented aioli; roasted beet tartare with cheese and pistachios; kale, spinach, and Pecorino pizza slivers; sardine bruchetta with fennel and preserved lemons; scallop and plum ceviche with tarragon; and lemon-lavender posset—to name just a few. <br /><br />Making delicious, beautiful dishes and snacks for grazing, whether for two or twelve, doesn’t have to be difficult or time-consuming. <i>Graze </i>is full of tips to help you prepare healthy, wholesome, and appetizing food without spending hours in the kitchen.

<b>Country music star and bestselling cookbook author Trisha Yearwood, host of Food Network’s <i>Trisha’s Southern Kitchen</i>, is back with an encore of recipes that once again share her family traditions and warm home-grown cooking style.<br /></b> <br />In her debut cookbook, <i>Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen</i>, Trisha proved that there’s much more to her than an award-winning country music career, as she welcomed us into her kitchen and served up a feast of flavorful meals and heartwarming personal anecdotes. Now, in <i>Cooking for Family and Friends</i>, Trisha opens her life and her kitchen once more with a trove of recipes from a lifetime of potlucks and colorful gatherings. <br /> <br />Trisha has that southern hospitality gene and she’s a big believer that cooking for someone else is an act of love. From breakfasts in bed to hearty casseroles and festive holiday meals, Trisha’s delicious recipes are dedicated to her loved ones, including her husband Garth Brooks (who’s her number one cooking fan <i>and </i>the contributor of a few knockout recipes of his own). <br /> <br />Trisha knows how good it feels to bring something to the table. It brings everyone closer together if they’ve had a hand in preparing a meal. These recipes all come with memories attached—of potlucks with good friends, church suppers, family fish fries, and beach picnics, Mother’s Day, and Christmas gatherings. Many are handed down from her mother, her aunts and cousins, or longtime friends, while others are her own contemporary improvisations on classic southern fare. Each one—whether a main dish, a tasty side, or a decadent dessert—comes with a heartwarming story from Trisha’s life that may remind you of some of your own favorite family foods, or inspire you to create new traditions. <br /> <br />You don’t have to be a southerner to enjoy Yearwood family specialties such as:<br /> <br />• Hot Corn Dip<br />• Cornbread Salad with French Dressing<br />• Baked Bean Casserole<br />• Jambalaya<br />• Pumpkin Roll<br />• Old Fashioned Strawberry Shortcake<br /><br />Plus, Trisha (and her sister and mother) offer up loads of practical advice, on everything from easily icing a cake to cutting a slice of pie, time-saving tips; and ingredient substitutions. With full-color photographs taken at Trisha’s home, this soulful and sincere testament to a southern life well-lived will delight both country music fans and home cooks everywhere.
