A <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author reveals how the beautiful, isolated Napa Valley wine region of California exploded into an extraordinary outsized version of the American dream and whose vineyards sparked an unbelievable power struggle between old family stewardship and multinational corporations.<BR><BR>Not so long ago, wine was an exclusively European product. Now it is thoroughly American; emblematic of Napa Valley, an area idealized as the epicenter of great wines and foods and a cultural tourist destination. But the romanticized accounts you find about it and its denizens is not what you’ll encounter in James Conaway’s candid book.<BR> <BR><i>Napa at Last Light</i> exposes the often shadowy side of the latter days of Napa Valley—marked by complex personal relationships, immense profits, passionate beliefs, and sometimes desperate struggles to prevail. In the balance hang fortunes and personal relationships made through hard work and, in too many cases, manipulation of laws, people, and institutions.<BR> <BR>Napans who grew up trusting in the beneficence of the “vintner” class now confront in the twenty-first century multinational corporations and their allies who have stealthily subsumed the old family landmarks and abandoned the once glorious conviction that agriculture is the highest and best use of the land. Inherent in that conviction is the sanctity of the place, threatened now by a relentless drive for profits at the expense of land, water, and even life.<BR> <BR>Hailed as the definitive Napa writer, Conaway has spent decades covering the region. <i>Napa at Last Light</i> showcases the greed, enviable profits, legacy, and tradition that still collide in this compelling story. The area is still full of dreamers, but of opposing sorts: those longing for a harmonious society based upon the vine envisioned by Thomas Jefferson more than two hundred years ago, and self-styled overlords yearning for wealth and the special acclaim only fine wine can bring. Bets are still out on what the future holds.

<DIV><B>The debut cookbook from The Cook’s Atelier—the international culinary destination and cooking school in Burgundy<I>—</I>is a beautifully photographed resource on classic French cuisine and an atmospheric chronicle of a family’s life in a charming French village.</B><BR />  <BR /> Mother and daughter American expats Marjorie Taylor and Kendall Smith Franchini always dreamed of living in France. With a lot of hard work and a dash of fate, they realized this dream and cofounded The Cook’s Atelier, a celebrated French cooking school in the storybook town of Beaune, located in the heart of the Burgundy wine region. Combining their professional backgrounds in food and wine, they attract visitors from near and far with their approachable, convivial style of cooking.<BR />  <BR /> Featuring more than 100 market-inspired recipes and 300 exceptional photographs, this comprehensive reference is an extension of their cooking school, providing a refreshingly simple take on French techniques and recipes that every cook should know—basic butchery, essential stocks and sauces, pastry, dessert creams and sauces, and preserving, to name a few. Seasonal menus build on this foundation, collecting recipes that showcase their fresh, vegetable-focused versions of timeless French dishes, such as:<BR />  <ul><li>Green Garlic Soufflé</li><li>Watermelon and Vineyard Peach Salad</li><li>Little Croques Madames</li><li>Sole Meunière with Beurre Blanc and Parsleyed Potatoes</li><li>Seared Duck Breast with Celery Root Puree and Chanterelles</li><li>Madeleines</li><li>Plum Tarte Tatin</li><li>Almond-Cherry Galette</li></ul> <BR /> Stories of food and life in the village and the unique atmosphere of the atelier accent this personal cookbook. We can almost hear the clanking of the copper pots, the hiss of the vintage espresso machine, and the merriment around the table, as we meet some of the region’s best small farmers and artisanal producers and experience how Marjorie and Kendall’s family works together to create this special place.<BR />  <BR /> More than a practical introduction to classic French cooking, this richly illustrated volume is also a distinctively designed celebration of the French art of joie de vivre and an inspirational primer on adopting elements of the French lifestyle, no matter where you live.</DIV>

<p><strong>An effortless—really!—approach that turns the body into a fat-burning machine.</strong></p><br />Is it possible to eat well, drink wine, and still lose weight? Melanie Avalon is living proof that, heck yeah, it’s not only possible, it’s unbelievably simple and straightforward. It’s all about the <em>what</em> (mostly Paleo, but she’s not a monster about it), the <em>when</em> (believe it or not, brief fasting can mean freedom rather than restriction), and the <em>wine</em> (red wine can be a secret bullet for weight loss—who knew?). It’s a combination that Avalon discovered after years of self-experimentation and intense research on the mechanics of body fat regulation.<br /><p>In <em>What When Wine</em>, Avalon shares her journey to a healthier lifestyle, with the tips and tricks she learned along the way, as well as a jumpstart plan including 50 delicious Paleo-friendly, gluten-free recipes by chef Ariane Resnick.</p>
