<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 /> “Intensely evocative . . . Reichl is one of the best food writers of our era.”<b>—<i>Vox</i></b><br /> <br />“[Reichl’s] voice remains one of the most trusted in our disparate food universe.”<b>—Bloomberg</b>

<b>Activate your weight-loss autopilot—use the power of simple intermittent fasting to lose the pounds and keep them off, from Hollywood trainer and #1 <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author Jorge Cruise.</b><br /><br /> Timing is everything when it comes to losing weight. Or, as celebrity trainer Jorge Cruise explains: <i>When</i> we eat is as important as <i>what</i> we eat. Building on the scientifically proven but hard-to-sustain day-on, day-off technique known as “intermittent fasting,” Cruise has developed a revolutionary masterplan that simplifies your calendar and eliminates between-meal hunger. He divides <i>every</i> day into two easy-to-remember nutritional zones: a 16-hour evening and overnight “burn zone” (<i>semi</i>-fasting) followed by an 8-hour “boost zone” (eating). Ingeniously, his plan also includes “bumper foods” that can be consumed in <i>either</i> zone—around the clock—to keep you satiated and burning fat throughout. You’ll never be hungry if you don’t really ever have to fully fast! Backed by the very latest research and client-tested for optimal results, <i>The Cruise Control Diet</i> unlocks the key to dramatic results with<br />  <br /> • recipes for deliciously unexpected boost zone foods, such as Portobello Mini Pizzas, Zoodle Spaghetti & Meatballs, Sheet Pan Salmon & Asparagus, and even Almond Butter Cookies<br /> • high-fat, no-sugar burn-zone recipes for craving-quenching foods like Double Chocolate Fudge Mousse and Vanilla Chai Tea Latte<br /> • weekly menus and handy grocery lists to take the guess work out of the equation<br /> • candid testimonials from Cruise’s clients and test-panel participants<br /> • an optional burn-zone exercise program with instructional photos<br /><br /> With <i>The Cruise Control Diet</i> you’ll automate your diet and finally conquer weight loss forever!<br /><br /><b>Featuring a foreword by Brooke Burke and an introduction by Jason Fung, M.D.</b><br /><br /><b>Praise for Jorge Cruise</b><br /><br />“Jorge gets it right. His recipes make eating smart easy. I recommend them highly.”<b>—Andrew Weil, M.D., #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Why Our Health Matters</i></b><br /> <br />“Jorge knows how to make weight loss simple and easy without feeling hungry.”<b>—Tyra Banks, model, actress, CEO, and <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author</b><br /> <br />“Recipes from my friend Jorge Cruise—where healthy food meets great flavor.”<b>—Emeril Lagasse, chef, restaurateur, and <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author</b>

Sourdough: The Gold Standard of Bread<br />  <br /> More and more home bakers are replacing mass-produced breads and commercial yeasts in favor of artisan breads made with wild cultures and natural fermentation. Whether you want to capture your own local yeasts, take advantage of established cultures like San Francisco Sourdough, or simply bake healthier, more natural loaves, you’ll find no better guides than renowned sourdough authorities Ed and Jean Wood. <br />  <br /> In this updated edition of <i>Classic Sourdoughs</i>, the Woods reveal their newly discovered secret to crafting the perfect loaf: by introducing a unique culture-proofing step and adjusting the temperature of the proofs, home bakers can control the sourness and leavening like never before. The reward? Fresh, hot sourdough emerging from the oven just the way you like it—every time. Starting with their signature Basic Sourdough loaf, the Woods present recipes featuring rustic grains and modern flavors, including Herb Spelt Bread, Prarie Flax Bread, and Malt Beer Bread, along with new no-knead versions of classics like White French Bread. They round out the collection with recipes for homemade baguettes, bagels, English muffins, and cinnamon rolls, plus a chapter on baking authentic sourdoughs in bread machines.<br />  <br /> Steeped in tradition, nuanced in flavor, and wonderfully ritualized in preparation, sourdough is bread the way it was meant to be. So join the sourdough renaissance and bring these time-honored traditions into your own kitchen.

<p>Anthony Bourdain is a man of many appetites. And for many years, first as a chef, later as a world-traveling chronicler of food and culture on his CNN series <em>Parts Unknown</em>, he has made a profession of understanding the appetites of others. These days, however, if he’s cooking, it’s for family and friends. </p><p><em>Appetites,</em> his first cookbook in more than ten years, boils down forty-plus years of professional cooking and globe-trotting to a tight repertoire of personal favorites—dishes that everyone should (at least in Mr. Bourdain’s opinion) know how to cook. Once the supposed "bad boy" of cooking, Mr. Bourdain has, in recent years, become the father of a little girl—a role he has embraced with enthusiasm. After years of traveling more than 200 days a year, he now enjoys entertaining at home. Years of prep lists and the hyper-organization necessary for a restaurant kitchen, however, have caused him, in his words, to have "morphed into a psychotic, anally retentive, bad-tempered Ina Garten." </p><p>The result is a home-cooking, home-entertaining cookbook like no other, with personal favorites from his own kitchen and from his travels, translated into an effective battle plan that will help you terrify your guests with your breathtaking efficiency. </p>
