<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>

Following this high-fat, low-carb way of eating helped her lose (and keep off) 80 pounds. Best known for the high-quality and impeccably tested recipes on her blog, TwoSleevers.com, Urvashi here turns her expertise to the snacks and treats that people miss most when they're eating the keto way—quick breads, muffins, pancakes, cookies, cakes, pies, ice cream, and more. Urvashi offers recipes for many classic, high-carb favorites that have been reworked to be “fat bombs,” which help keep your macros in balance, as well as prevent you from craving all the things you usually can’t eat when you're trying to lose weight. Many of the more than 100 recipes require no more than 10 to 15 minutes of prep time, and they taste as delicious and indulgent as they sound—how about Chocolate Peanut Butter Pops, Mocha Cheesecake, or Almond Butter Bombs? She also includes recipes for tasty smoothies, savory dressings, and sauces to round out the collection.</P></DIV>

<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>

<b>Superstar chef Alex Stupak's love of real Mexican food changed his life; it caused him to quit the world of fine-dining pastry and open the smash-hit Empellón Taqueria in New York City. Now he'll change the way you make--and think about--tacos forever. </b><br />  <br /> <i>Tacos</i> is a deep dive into the art and craft of one of Mexico's greatest culinary exports. Start by making fresh tortillas from corn and flour, and variations that look to innovative grains and flavor infusions. Next, master salsas, from simple chopped condiments to complex moles that simmer for hours and have flavor for days. Finally, explore fillings, both traditional and modern--from a pineapple-topped pork al pastor to pastrami with mustard seeds. <br />  <br /> But <i>Tacos</i> is more than a collection of beautiful things to cook. Wrapped up within it is an argument: Through these recipes, essays, and sumptuous photographs by Evan Sung, the 3-Michelin-star veteran makes the case that Mexican food should be as esteemed as the highest French cooking.
