This is a beautifully designed and sumptuously photographed cookbook which shows how seasonal fruit harmonizes and enhances myriad vegetable and meat dishes.
We often associate fruit in recipes with preserves, cakes, sorbets, and desserts—all sweet dishes. However, fruit can be an incredible complement to savory dishes too. Adding blackberries to a duck breast— and-chard recipe or caramelized pears to a porkand-sage recipe creates an incredibly tasty dish with a great depth of flavor. We are already familiar with some classic pairings, of course, such as lemon and chicken, apple and pork, and cranberries and turkey, but there is a whole world of flavor combinations we’re missing out on. This book shows you how to best incorporate fruit into your everyday cooking—whether the dishes are sweet or savory.
The book is arranged alphabetically by the central fruit used in the dish—twenty different fruits in total, which includes apples, apricots, blackberries, cherries, citrus fruits, figs, peaches, plums, quince, rhubarb, and strawberries, as well as dried fruits—while the recipes themselves are generally contemporary versions of Mediterranean classics (with some inspired by places further afield, such as an apricot-sweetened chicken korma curry). With 120 delicious recipes, this book promises to be a kitchen staple that will be used again and again.

wine simple : A Totally Approachable Guide from a World-Class Sommelier
Aldo Sohm is one of the most respected and widely lauded sommeliers in the world. He's worked with celebrated chef Eric Ripert as wine director of three-Michelin-starred Le Bernardin for over a decade, yet his philosophy and approach to wine is much more casual. Aldo's debut book, Wine Simple, is full of confidence-building infographics and illustrations, an unbeatable depth of knowledge, effusive encouragement, and, most important, strong opinions on wine so you can learn to form your own. Imbued with Aldo's insatiable passion and eagerness to teach others, Wine Simple is accessible, deeply educational, and lively and fun, both in voice and visuals.
This essential guide begins with the fundamentals of wine in easy-to-absorb hits of information and pragmatic, everyday tips—key varietals and winemaking regions, how to taste, when to save and when to splurge, and how to set up a wine tasting at home. Aldo then teaches you how to take your wine knowledge to the next level and evolve your palate, including techniques on building a “flavor library,” a cheat sheet to good (and great) vintages (and why you shouldn't put everything on the line for them), tips on troubleshooting tricky wines (corked? mousy?), and, for the daring, even how to saber a bottle of champagne. This visual, user-friendly approach will inspire readers to have the confidence, curiosity, and enthusiasm to taste smarter, drink boldly, and dive headfirst fearlessly into the exciting world of wine.

a short guide to a happy life by Anna Quindlen
From the New York Times bestselling author of Alternate Side, Anna Quindlen’s classic reflection on a meaningful life makes a perfect gift for any occasion.
“Life is made of moments, small pieces of silver amidst long stretches of tedium. It would be wonderful if they came to us unsummoned, but particularly in lives as busy as the ones most of us lead now, that won’t happen. We have to teach ourselves now to live, really live . . . to love the journey, not the destination.”
In this treasure of a book, Anna Quindlen, the bestselling novelist and columnist, reflects on what it takes to “get a life”—to live deeply every day and from your own unique self, rather than merely to exist through your days. “Knowledge of our own mortality is the greatest gift God ever gives us,” Quindlen writes, “because unless you know the clock is ticking, it is so easy to waste our days, our lives.” Her mother died when Quindlen was nineteen: “It was the dividing line between seeing the world in black and white, and in Technicolor. The lights came on for the darkest possible reason. . . . I learned something enduring, in a very short period of time, about life. And that was that it was glorious, and that you had no business taking it for granted.” But how to live from that perspective, to fully engage in our days? In A Short Guide to a Happy Life, Quindlen guides us with an understanding that comes from knowing how to see the view, the richness in living.
