“David Alan is the epitome of Oscar Wilde’s good advice: ‘Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.’ You can’t get more ‘yourself’ than David, known far and wide for his unique, creative, and delightful Tipsy Texan handcrafted cocktails. And now, thanks to his truly delicious book, we can all mix up our own tastes of David’s Texas—from Austin loquats to Hill Country peaches, blended with the state’s finest artisan liquors. Cheers!” —Jim Hightower, author, nationally syndicated columnist, radio commentator, and editor of the Hightower Lowdown “Don’t let the Tipsy Texan’s clever nickname fool you: Here’s a man who seriously understands the art and the lore of the cocktail. Long at the forefront of Texas mixology, David Alan has created a delightful new book that outlines all that’s needed to make cocktails like a pro. His unique ability to dream up delicious takes on classic cocktails will inspire you. From ‘light and refreshing’ to ‘big and boozy,’ David delivers a cocktail for every taste and occasion. David may be a hardcore Texan, but his irresistible cocktails are certain to have universal appeal.” —Rebecca Rather, Texas chef and author of The Pastry Queen, The Pastry Queen Christmas, and Pastry Queen Parties Tipsy Texan is a snapshot of the current Texas cocktail and spirit culture. Meet the bartenders who ushered in the Texas cocktail revival, and see the places where they ply their trade. Read about the distillers who have put Texas on the national craft distilling map, and all the wonderful cocktails that Texas bartenders (and bar patrons!) have devised in which to use these homegrown spirits. Join us on a tour of the gardens and farmers' markets that give Texans an incredible year-round assortment of fruits and vegetables, ripe for the picking—and ripe for the drinking. The book's recipes are organized by the way people drink: Big & Boozy drinks for when hearty, spirit-forward cocktails are the order; Light, Bright & Refreshing cocktails that will get you through those long, hot Texas summers; and Sweet, Creamy, and Desserty cocktails that will satisfy the sweet tooth. A section on techniques will reveal tricks of the trade, with each recipe accompanied by ingredient notes for anything out of the ordinary or that must be house-made. Recipes include the author's own creations, as well as classic cocktails with local and regional twists, such as the Old Austin, a Texas update on the Old Fashioned, sweetened with toasted pecan syrup. The Peach Tom Collins is a simple variation on the classic that tastes like Hill Country in a glass. As the summer recedes and the trees begin to bear fall fruits, the Harvest Punch showcases local rum, seasonal spices, and fresh pressed apple cider. Winter may come and go in the blink of an eye, at least in the state's southernmost parts, but there's at least enough time for a bowl of Absinthe Eggnog or a Golden Sleigh, an eggnog variation on the old Golden Cadillac. Succulent red grapefruits—the crown jewels of Texas's indigenous cocktail ingredients from the Rio Grande valley—figure prominently here.

The story of Austin food is equal parts deep Texan traditions and a booming food scene. It is this atmosphere that has fostered some of the hottest restaurants in the country, a lively food truck community, and a renaissance in the most Texan of foods: barbecue. Austin food is also tacos and Tex-Mex, old fashioned Southern cooking, and street food and fine dining, with influences from all over the globe. And above all, it’s a source of intense pride and inspiration for chefs and diners alike. Organized by Austin’s “major food groups”—like barbecue, tacos, and Tex-Mex—The Austin Cookbook explores the roots of Texas food traditions and the restaurants that are reinventing them, revealing the secrets to Bob Armstrong dip, Odd Duck’s sweet potato nachos, East Side King’s beet fries, and of course, smoked brisket that has people lining up to eat it—even in the Texas summer. Part cookbook, part souvenir, and 100 percent love letter, The Austin Cookbook is perfect for proud locals, visitors, and (t)ex-pats.

Alexander Maksiks Roman „Die Gestrandete“ wurde von der internationalen Presse gefeiert. Unvergleichlich aufwühlend und poetisch fängt er ein, was es bedeutet, heimatlos und auf der Flucht zu sein. Wie findet man einen Ort zum Leben, wenn man heimatlos ist? Wie erträgt man den Verlust der Familie? Diese ­Fragen stellt sich Jacqueline längst nicht mehr. Ihre Gedanken drehen sich nur noch um den nächsten Schluck Wasser, das nächste Stück Brot, die sichere Schlafstelle für die kommende Nacht. Jacqueline ist eine Gestrandete. Sie ist dreiundzwanzig Jahre alt und aus ihrer afrikanischen Heimat geflohen. Nun kämpft sie an einem griechischen Strand ums Überleben. Tagsüber bietet sie Touristen Massagen an, fünf Minuten für einen Euro, nachts wäscht sie sich im Meer. Sie trägt nur ihre Kleider und eine Geschichte bei sich. Mehr nicht. Über das Erlebte kann sie nicht sprechen. Doch dann, eines Tages, lädt eine Frau sie zum Essen ein. Die Güte bricht Jacquelines Schweigen, und sie beginnt zu erzählen – von dem Licht in ihrer Heimat, von den Füßen ihrer Schwester, von den sanften Augen ihres Vaters, von ihrer Flucht. Und davon, dass Erinnerungen, Erlebnisse und Überleben oft keinen Platz für Hoffnung lassen. "Ein Roman, der aufwühlt, weil er den Leser die Perspektive wechseln und spüren lässt, wie es ist, allein, traumatisiert, unverständlich und unwillkommen zu sein." Münchner Merkur "Eine beklemmende Geschichte, die uns die aktuelle Situation in Europa und in Afrika schonungslos vor Augen führt." Buchkultur

Istanbul um 1600, Blütezeit des Osmanischen Reichs. Im Topkapi-Palast kommt ein außergewöhnliches Kind zur Welt, der junge Pascha verfügt über einen absoluten Geschmackssinn. Als der Sultan all seine männlichen Verwandten ermorden lässt, überlebt der Junge das grausame Massaker mithilfe des Küchenchefs. Ihm gelingt die Flucht, und er beginnt seine Lehrjahre. In Bagdad studiert er Sternen- und Naturheilkunde, auf der Insel Hormus unterweist ihn die Herrin der Aromen in Gewürzkunde, die Lehre der Geschmacksrichtungen, und die symbolische Meisterschaft verleiht ihm ein Bibliothekar in Alexandria. Als Meisterkoch kehrt er zurück nach Istanbul, wo er seine große Liebe Kamer, die begnadete Tänzerin, wiederfinden will. Und er hat sich geschworen, Rache zu nehmen für die Ungerechtigkeiten, die ihm als Kind widerfahren sind. Schließlich wähnt er sich am Ziel seines Strebens: die legendäre Palastküche, Inbegriff aller kulinarischer Wonnen, raffiniertester Intrigen und gefährlicher Eifersucht ...
