NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Includes an exclusive conversation between Ruth Reichl and Emily Giffin Ruth Reichl is a born storyteller. Through her restaurant reviews, where she celebrated the pleasures of a well-made meal, and her bestselling memoirs that address our universal feelings of love and loss, Reichl has achieved a special place in the hearts of hundreds of thousands of readers. Now, with this magical debut novel, she has created a sumptuous, wholly realized world that will enchant you. Billie Breslin has traveled far from her home in California to take a job at Delicious!, New York’s most iconic food magazine. Away from her family, particularly her older sister, Genie, Billie feels like a fish out of water—until she is welcomed by the magazine’s colorful staff. She is also seduced by the vibrant downtown food scene, especially by Fontanari’s, the famous Italian food shop where she works on weekends. Then Delicious! is abruptly shut down, but Billie agrees to stay on in the empty office, maintaining the hotline for reader complaints in order to pay her bills. To Billie’s surprise, the lonely job becomes the portal to a miraculous discovery. In a hidden room in the magazine’s library, Billie finds a cache of letters written during World War II by Lulu Swan, a plucky twelve-year-old, to the legendary chef James Beard. Lulu’s letters provide Billie with a richer understanding of history, and a feeling of deep connection to the young writer whose courage in the face of hardship inspires Billie to comes to terms with her fears, her big sister and her ability to open her heart to love. Praise for Delicious! “Compulsively readable . . . a treat for anyone who loves a warm, character-packed tale—a delectable mix of flavor, fantasy, and emotional comfort food.”—O: The Oprah Magazine “[Reichl’s] New York is a fairy-tale town where beautiful food abounds. . . . The novel presents a whole passel of surprises: a puzzle to solve; a secret room; hidden letters; the legacy of James Beard; and a parallel, equally plucky heroine from the past, who also happens to be a culinary prodigy.”—The New York Times Book Review “Fascinating characters . . . There’s romance, intrigue, food history, and the fictional appearance of a very real American culinary icon.”—The Austin Chronicle “Reichl’s vivid descriptions of food will have readers salivating, and an insider’s look at life at a food magazine is fascinating. Her satisfying coming-of-age novel of love and loss vividly demonstrates the power of food to connect people across cultures and generations.”—Library Journal (starred review) “This savory feast of a first novel blends the rich gifts that readers of Reichl’s memoirs and food writing have come to expect. To a tantalizing coming-of-age story about a budding chef and journalist she adds a bittersweet tale of separated sisters.”—More From the Trade Paperback edition.

"Ich mag dich." Diese drei Worte und ein Kuss bringen Jolas Vorsatz ins Wanken, sich nie und nimmer mit dem Frauenheld Rick einzulassen. Sein dominanter Charme sorgt dafür, dass sie nicht nur seiner romantischen Einladung auf eine einsame Skihütte folgt, sondern auch auf seinen Vorschlag, ein ungewöhnliches Spiel mit ihm zu spielen, eingeht: Sieben Tage und sieben Nächte, immer im Wechsel, müssen sie sich gegenseitig einen erotischen Wunsch erfüllen. Doch das ist nicht so einfach, wie geplant. "Ein richtig guter Blowjob ist für mich, wenn ich merke, dass es der Frau Spaß macht. Wenn sie sich hingibt – für mich", vertraut Rick ihr an und Jola versteht, dass ihre Wünsche sich nur erfüllen, wenn sie sich selbst fallen lässt und ihm vertraut. Der Casanova entpuppt sich als ein Liebhaber, der die Zügel beim Liebesspiel fest in der Hand hält und Jola gleichzeitig den Weg zur Hingabe mit Einfühlsamkeit ebnet. Von Tag zu Tag, von Stunde zu Stunde fühlt sie sich deswegen stärker zu ihm und seiner Dominanz hingezogen – und entdeckt, wie reizvoll es ist, sich ihm zu unterwerfen. Als leise die Frage in ihr aufkeimt, ob da mehr als nur Begehren zwischen ihr und Rick sein könnte, ist Rick plötzlich verschwunden ... Ein romantischer und emotionaler BDSM-Roman.

Gaylen, the King's messenger, a skinny boy of twelve, is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it is merely a question of disagreement at the royal castle over which food should stand for Delicious in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war is to be avoided. Gaylen's quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise, 900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who sings him an old song about a mermaid child and who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to the underground domain of the dwarfs; and finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom from havoc. The Search for Delicious is a 1969 New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book of the Year.

Hello dear readers, If you think of the Ruhr region or Münsterland, you can't get past food. I was born in Essen-City, in the middle of the Ruhrpott, and have lived in Lünen for many years now. Lünen is the gateway to Münsterland. Nothing is closer than writing about delicious, savoury and savoury dishes. Just when my grandma was my teacher. Grandma was cooking at a large restaurant in Essen-City at the time. This cookbook is divided into four parts. We start with hearty dishes from home. The second chapter is about salads (fish salads and party salads), the third part about hearty soups. The fourth chapter is about grandmother's favourite dishes, which are highly topical and easy to cook, especially in today's stressed time. Thank you for your interest and "Good appetite" wishes Renate Sueltz.

Love, food and Italy - a delicious novel from the author of THE FOOD OF LOVE COOKERY SCHOOL. Italy, 1964. Maria Domenica is the eldest daughter in the Carrozza family from the tiny southern village of San Giulio. At 16, Maria's life is limited to the confines of her mother's rural kitchen (where she bakes bread every morning, the way the Carrozza women always have), and the Caffe Angeli, a place of friendship, strong espresso and famous ricotta sfolgliatelle. Her parents have high hopes for their beautiful first-born, but she has other plans. Maria runs away to Rome but, a year later, she returns to San Giulio in disgrace - eight months pregnant with the identity of the father a mystery. Hastily, shamefully, she is married off to a neighbour's son. But she soon escapes again, this time to England, where she searches once more for a new life for herself and her daughter, Chiara. Many years later, it is Chiara, not Maria, who finds herself drawn back to San Giulio. But she soon discovers that the simple Italian life she seeks is not as simple as it seems - particularly where the past is concerned.

“Carl Hiaasen, meet Hannibal Lecter” in this comedy about a vengeful Hawaiian chef, his greedy rivals, and some very bad table manners (Kirkus Reviews). Joseph Tanumafili’s family-owned food-service business in Honolulu has been the only game in town for years. But when competing caterers from Las Vegas arrive to accommodate the cast and crew of a film shoot, the battle for paradise begins. As far as Joseph and his hotheaded Samoan uncle are concerned, no mainlanders are going to muscle in on native territory. Lines are drawn and everyone’s taking a side: a gay TV producer on romantic rebound; his androgynous New Age–y assistant; a horny stroke survivor in a state of perpetual, chemically induced arousal; an aspiring missionary; a dimwitted bodybuilder; and a sweet-natured pimp. But when the Sin City boys decide to enlist the services of an ecstasy-popping ex-Marine hit man, Joseph hits back. And for such a resourceful chef, the revenge is going to be absolutely delicious. Mark Haskell Smith offers a guide to Hawaii that definitely hasn’t been endorsed by the tourist bureau, nor is it “for those with weak stomachs, prudish minds or delicate ears, but that leaves the rest of us to savor the novel’s many twisted charms” (Baltimore Sun). “Think Elmore Leonard meets Mario Batali.” —Richard Rayner, Los Angeles Times “Perverse black humor and sensuality, totally unexpected situations . . . simply breathtaking.” —Liz Smith, New York Post

The food discussion in America can be quite pessimistic. With high obesity rates, diabetes, climate change, chemical use, water contamination, and farm animal abuse, it would seem that there wasn't very much room for a positive perspective. The fear that there just isn't enough food has expanded to new areas of concern about water availability, rising health care costs, and dying bees. In Unnaturally Delicious, Lusk makes room for optimism by writing the story of the changing food system, suggesting that technology and agriculture can work together in a healthy and innovative way to help solve the world's largest food issues and improve the farming system as we know it. This is the story of the innovators and innovations shaping the future of food. You’ll meet an ex-farmer entrepreneur whose software is now being used all over the world to help farmers increase yields and reduce nutrient runoff and egg producers who’ve created new hen housing systems that improve animal welfare at an affordable price. There are scientists growing meat in the lab. Without the cow. College students are coaxing bacteria to signal food quality and fight obesity. Nutrient enhanced rice and sweet potatoes are aiming to solve malnutrition in the developing world. Geneticists are creating new wheat varieties that allow farmers sustainably grow more with less. And, we’ll learn how to get fresh, tasty, 3D printed food at the touch of a button, perhaps even delivered to us by a robotic chef. Innovation is the American way. Thomas Jefferson, George Washington Carver, and John Harvey Kellogg were food and agricultural entrepreneurs. Their delicious innovations led to new healthy, tasty, convenient, and environmentally friendly food. The creations were unnaturally delicious. Unnatural because the foods and practices they fashioned were man-made solutions to natural and man-made problems. Now the world is filled with new challenges changing the way we think about food. Who are the scientists, entrepreneurs, and progressive farmers who meet these challenges and search for solutions? Unnaturally Delicious has the answers.

Cal Buchanan needs a top-flight chef to take over his failing Seattle restaurant, The Waterfront. He can afford to hire the best in town—the only problem is that the best happens to be his ex-wife, Penny Jackson. Penny really needs this opportunity, but she doesn't need the distraction of working with her ex. She's sworn off romance—she's even having a baby on her own. But before she knows it, the heat is on…and the attraction between her and Cal moves from a low simmer to a full boil! The rest should be easy as pie, but a secret from Cal's past could spoil everything. Maybe it's true that too many cooks spoil the broth—or maybe two is enough to make it irresistible.

This collection of recipes and stories from Chef Boyardee’s granddaughter is “part cookbook, part family history, and part homage to her ancestors—immigrants who made their way in a new country” (NPR). The Boiardi name has reached tables across America for more than seventy years. Most Americans have fond memories of this iconic brand, evoking nostalgia for a simpler time. From a very young age, Anna Boiardi spent countless hours helping her mother and grandmother, kneading and folding, and listening to stories as rich as the tortellini she and her mother would work to perfection. Now, for the first time, Anna brings us the authentic recipes that inspired the brand, including Ravioli with Ricotta and Squash Filling, Cotechino with Lentils, and Baked Fennel with Butter and Parmesan. Recipes for sauces, meats, and of course pasta dishes are just some of the secrets Anna shares in Delicious Memories. “This loving paean to home-style Italian cooking and the culinary traditions of a family dynasty rooted in food offers just the right balance of nostalgia and appetizing recipes.”—Publishers Weekly “If you’ve never been excited by Chef Boyardee’s spaghetti and ravioli dinners, fear not-there’s much more to the Boiardi family’s recipes than what you've seen in the supermarket.” —Library Journal
