<b>“A marvelous journey through the mad, manic, seductive subculture of wine and wine lovers.” –Susan Orlean<br /><br />“The <i>Kitchen Confidential</i> of wine.” <b>–Madeline Puckette, WineFolly.com<i><br /><br /></i></b>"I loved this book.” -Mary Roach</b><br /> <br />Professional journalist and amateur drinker Bianca Bosker didn't know much about wine—until she discovered an alternate universe where taste reigns supreme, a world of elite sommeliers who dedicate their lives to the pursuit of flavor. Astounded by their fervor and seemingly superhuman sensory powers, she set out to uncover what drove their obsession, and whether she, too, could become a “cork dork.” <br /><br />With boundless curiousity, humor, and a healthy dose of skepticism, Bosker takes the reader inside underground tasting groups, exclusive New York City restaurants, California mass-market wine factories, and even a neuroscientist’s fMRI machine as she attempts to answer the most nagging question of all: What’s the big deal about wine? What she learns will change the way you drink wine--and, perhaps, the way you live--forever.<br /><br /><br />Named one of the Best Books of Early 2017 by Brightly<br />Named one of the 20 Best Nonfiction Books Coming in March 2017 by Bustle<br />Named one of The Best Drink Books of Spring and Summer 2017 by Punch

<div><B>“[A] culinary combo plate of Hunter S. Thompson, Ernest Hemingway, Julian Schnabel, and Sam Peckinpah . . . Harrison writes with enough force to make your knees buckle and with infectious zeal that makes you turn the pages hungry for more . . . Jim Harrison has staked out a distinctive place in the world of food writing.”—Jane and Michael Stern, <I>New York Times Book Review</I> on <I>The Raw and the Cooked</I></B><BR><BR><I>New York Times</I> bestselling author Jim Harrison was one of this country’s most beloved writers, a muscular, brilliantly economic stylist with a salty wisdom. He also wrote some of the best essays on food around, earning praise as “the poet laureate of appetite” (<I>Dallas Morning News</I>). <I>A Really Big Lunch</I>, to be published on the one-year anniversary of Harrison’s death, collects many of his food pieces for the first time—and taps into his larger-than-life appetite with wit and verve.<BR><BR>Jim Harrison’s legendary gourmandise is on full display in <I>A Really Big Lunch</I>. From the titular <I>New Yorker</I> piece about a French lunch that went to thirty-seven courses, to pieces from <I>Brick</I>, <I>Playboy</I>, Kermit Lynch Newsletter, and more on the relationship between hunter and prey, or the obscure language of wine reviews, <I>A Really Big Lunch</I> is shot through with Harrison’s pointed aperçus and keen delight in the pleasures of the senses. And between the lines the pieces give glimpses of Harrison’s life over the last three decades. <I>A Really Big Lunch</I> is a literary delight that will satisfy every appetite.<BR><BR><B>“Harrison is the American Rabelais, and he is at his irreverent and excessive best in this collection.” —John Skowles, <I>San Diego Union-Tribune</I> on <I>The Raw and the Cooked</I></B><BR></div>

<div>Growing up in a household of food-loving Italian-Americans, Marissa Landrigan was always a black sheep—she barely knew how to boil water for pasta. But at college, she thought she’d found her purpose. Buoyed by animal rights activism and a feminist urge to avoid the kitchen, she transformed into a hardcore vegan activist, complete with shaved head.<BR><BR>But Landrigan still hadn’t found her place in the world. Striving to develop her career and maintain a relationship, she criss-crossed the U.S. Along the way, she discovered that eating ethically was far from simple—and cutting out meat was no longer enough. As she got closer to the source of her food, eventually even visiting a slaughterhouse and hunting elk, Landrigan realized that the most ethical way of eating was to know her food and prepare it herself, on her own terms, to eat with family and friends.<BR><BR>Part memoir and part investigative journalism, <I>The Vegetarian’s Guide to Eating Meat</I> is as much a search for identity as it is a fascinating treatise on food.</div>

Insects. They’re what’s for dinner. Can you imagine a world in which that simple statement is not only true but in fact an unremarkable part of daily life? Daniella Martin, entomophagist and blogger, can. <P>In this rollicking excursion into the world of edible insects, Martin takes us to the front lines of the next big trend in the global food movement and shows us how insects just might be the key to solving world hunger. Along the way, we sample moth larvae tacos at the Don Bugito food cart in San Francisco, travel to Copenhagen to meet the experimental tasters at Noma’s Nordic Food Lab, gawk at the insects stocked in the frozen food aisle at Thailand’s Costco, and even crash an underground bug-eating club in Tokyo.<P>Martin argues that bugs have long been an important part of indigenous diets and cuisines around the world, and investigates our own culture’s bias against their use as a food source. She shines a light on the cutting-edge research of Marcel Dicke and other scientists who are only now beginning to determine the nutritional makeup of insects and champion them as an efficient and sustainable food source.<P>Whether you love or hate bugs, <I>Edible</I> will radically change the way you think about the global food crisis and perhaps persuade you that insects are much more than a common pest. For the adventurous, the book includes an illustrated list of edible insects, recipes, and instructions on how to raise bugs at home.

In Memory of Bread: A Memoir

<b>The funny, poignant memoir of one man’s struggle to come to terms with his celiac diagnosis, forcing him to reexamine his relationship with food.</b><br /><br />When Paul Graham was suddenly diagnosed with celiac disease at the age of thirty-six, he was forced to say goodbye to traditional pasta, pizza, sandwiches, and more. Gone, too, were some of his favorite hobbies, including brewing beer with a buddy and gorging on his wife’s homemade breads. Struggling to understand why he and so many others had become allergic to wheat, barley, rye, oats, and other dietary staples, Graham researched the production of modern wheat and learned that not only has the grain been altered from ancestral varieties but it’s also commonly added to thousands of processed foods. <br /><br />In writing that is effortless and engaging, Paul explores why incidence of the disease is on the rise while also grappling with an identity crisis—given that all his favorite pastimes involved wheat in some form. His honest, unflinching, and at times humorous journey towards health and acceptance makes an inspiring read.
