Armed with �The Here List� and a Type-A personality, Seattle-based writer and cookbook author Jess Thomson sets out to spend a year exploring the food of the Pacific Northwest with her family. Planning to revel in the culinary riches of the region and hoping to break her son, Graham, of his childhood pickiness, the adventures into the great nearby include building a backyard chicken coop, truffle hunting in Oregon, and razor clamming on the Washington coast. Her plans to spend �a year right here� are complicated by efforts to help Graham overcome some of the mobility limitations of cerebral palsy, and thwarted further by her own limitations that come to the fore when she attempts the �Gourmet Century,� a hilly one-hundred-kilometer bike ride with gourmet food stops along the way. With touching, funny, sometimes devastating stories that we all can relate to, Jess pulls the reader in as she abandons �The Here List� and learns that letting go can be just as important as holding on.

From James Beard Best Chef-nominee Rachel Yang, My Rice Bowl is a cookbook with 75 recipes based on her deeply comforting Korean fusion cuisine, inspired by cultures from around the world. As co-owner of the popular Seattle restaurants, Joule, Trove, and Revel, and Portland's Revelry, chef Rachel Yang delights with her unique Korean fusion—think noodles, dumplings, pickles, pancakes, and barbecue. Along with her husband, Seif Chirchi, Yang serves food that exemplifies cross-cultural cooking at its most gratifying. In the cookbook you’ll find the restaurants’ kimchi recipe, of course, but there’s so much more—seaweed noodles with crab and crème fraîche, tahini-garlic grilled pork belly, fried cauliflower with miso bagna cauda, chipotle-spiked pad thai, Korean-taco pickles, and the ultimate Korean fried chicken (served with peanut brittle shards for extra crunch). There are rice bowls too—with everything from lamb curry to charred shiitake mushrooms—but this book goes way beyond bibimbap. In many ways, the book, like Yang’s restaurants, is analogous to a rice bowl; underpinning everything is Yang’s strict childhood in Korea and the food memories it engrained in her. But on top you’ll taste a mosaic of flavors from across the globe, plus a dash of her culinary alma maters, Per Se and Alain Ducasse. This is the authentic, cutting-edge fusion food of a Korean immigrant who tried everything she could to become an American, but only became one when she realized that her culture—among many—is what makes America so delicious today.

The unexpected gift of a favored bottle of shiraz from her husband leads to the adventure of a lifetime for Karen Pond and her family—moving from rural Maine to the largest city in the world: Tokyo, Japan. Getting Genki in Japan is a collection of illustrated travel and culture essays and musings of a Down East Mom's absurd and exhilarating adventures in the Far East. From bewildered and befuddled (and back again) to (somewhat) wise, these narratives recount a journey of cultural discoveries, experiences and the follies of a newcomer to Japan; including (mis)identifying food, (mis)pronouncing Japanese, (mis)pantomiming for necessities, and finally figuring out how to flush the Japanese toilet!

Despite the Western diet high in meat and dairy products, much of the rest of the world has traditionally followed a primarily or entirely vegetarian diet. Tragically, there has been a dramatic transition in the latter as world meat production has increased about 10 times the world population growth rate in just a few decades. I have witnessed the transition to a diet high in animal products in places as beautiful as Micronesia and sub-Saharan Africa, where diseases such as diabetes and heart disease have just begun to rear their ugly heads. This grave trend also multiplies the devastating consequences for the environment worldwide and for the countless billions of animals killed each year for food-10 billion land animals and 10 billion sea animals in the United States alone. Many of us wonder what steps we can take to make a difference in the world. Here, the answer is simple. Following a vegan diet is the first and foremost step to improve the condition of the environment, human health, and the lives of animals. Around the World Vegan Style tells you how and why. Hope Ferdowsian, M.D., M.P.H. In Around the World Vegan Style, Nancy Robinson unites all people of the globe through a single common bond- the love of delicious food! In its pages you'll find authentic recipes all free of animal products and featuring chefs' specialties, all sure to please your palate and increase your appreciation for global cuisine. Let Around the World Vegan Style turn your kitchen into a travel adventure for your tongue, while healthfully nourishing yourself, your family, and friends. Welcome aboard. The journey to worldwide taste delights starts here! Michael Klaper, M.D. Author: Vegan Nutrition: Pure and Simple Nancy Robinson's cookbook could not come at a better time. The whole world is beginning to realize that animal agriculture-a major source of water pollution and deforestation-is one of the biggest culprits in global warming. The 2007 United Nations report shows that farmed animals are a top contributor to today's serious environmental problems, including greenhouse gases. The global increase in meat consumption also causes rates of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and other diet-related illnesses to soar. If we're going to reverse the damage we've done to our health and the environment, we have to begin now. Around the World Vegan Style is a step in that direction. Patrice Green, M.D., J.D. Assistant Professor, University of Maryland School of Medicine Faculty Member, Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Fellow, American College of Legal Medicine There is just food and the land to grow that food. If we can all just realize this simple fact for one moment, and stop fighting over the land that holds the roots that support the tree that bears the fruit that feeds the child, then maybe, just maybe...peace. Around the World Vegan Style is more than a cookbook. Nancy Robinson shares how the vegan lifestyle embraces all facets of just food for all life. George Eisman, Registered Dietition, Teacher, and Clinician Author, The Most Noble Diet I'm delighted to recommend Around the World Vegan Style. Nancy Robinson's cooking is out of this world. Luckily, her superb recipes from around the world are right here in this book. Nancy combines exquisite flavors with the most sumptuous dining experience. There is just one thing to do-dig in and enjoy! Karen Davis, PhD, President, United Poultry Concerns Author, Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs: An Inside Look at the Modern Poultry Industry
