In Inventing Authenticity, Carrie Helms Tippen examines the rhetorical power of storytelling in cookbooks to fortify notions of southernness. Tippen brings to the table her ongoing hunt for recipe cards and evaluates a wealth of cookbooks with titles like Y’all Come Over and Bless Your Heart and famous cookbooks such as Sean Brock’s Heritage and Edward Lee’s Smoke and Pickles. She examines her own southern history, grounding it all in a thorough understanding of the relevant literature. The result is a deft and entertaining dive into the territory of southern cuisine—“black-eyed peas and cornbread,fried chicken and fried okra, pound cake and peach cobbler,”—and a look at and beyond southern food tropes that reveals much about tradition, identity, and the yearning for authenticity. Tippen discusses the act of cooking as a way to perform—and therefore reinforce—the identity associated with a recipe, and the complexities inherent in attempts to portray the foodways of a region marked by a sometimes distasteful history. Inventing Authenticity meets this challenge head-on, delving into problems of cultural appropriation and representations of race, thorny questions about authorship, and more. The commonplace but deceptively complex southern cookbook can sustain our sense of where we come from and who we are—or who we think we are.

Now in a celebratory fiftieth anniversary edition, The German Cookbook is the definitive authority on German cuisine, from delicious soups and entrees to breads, desserts, and the greatest baking specialties in the world. In addition to easy-to-follow recipes, renowned food writer Mimi Sheraton also includes recommendations for restaurants at home and abroad, as well as tips on ordering traditional fare. Historically, German influence on the American diet, from hamburgers and frankfurters to jelly doughnuts and cakes, has been enormous. But, as the author writes in a brand-new Preface, “Americans have begun to realize that Austrian and German cooks have long been adept at preparing foods that are newly fashionable here, whether for reasons of health, seasonality, economy or just pure pleasure.” Many standards foreshadowed the precepts of new cooking, such as pickling, and combining sweet with savory. Alongside old Bavarian favorites, The German Cookbook includes recipes for nose-to-tail pork, wild game, and organ meats; hearty root vegetables and the entire cabbage family; main-course soups and one-pot meals; whole-grain country breads and luscious chocolate confections; and lesser-known dishes worthy of rediscovery, particularly the elegant seafood of Hamburg. Since Mimi Sheraton first began her research more than fifty years ago, she has traveled extensively throughout Germany, returning with one authentic recipe after another to test in her own kitchen. Today, The German Cookbook is a classic in its field, a testament to a lifetime of spectacular meals and gustatory dedication. So Prosit and gut essen: cheers and good eating!

**Βραβείο Man Booker 2016** Μια δηκτική, βαθιά πολιτική σάτιρα για την ταυτότητα της σύγχρονης Αμερικής, ένα μυθιστόρημα που περιγράφει την εκκεντρική ανατροφή ενός Αφροαμερικανού και μια δίκη άνευ προηγουμένου στην ιστορία των Ηνωμένων Πολιτειών. Ο αφηγητής, γεννημένος στο «αγροτικό γκέτο» του Ντίκενς στο Λος Άντζελες, αποδέχεται μοιρολατρικά το περιθώριο. Τον μεγαλώνει ο πατέρας του, ένας ιδιόρρυθμος επιστήμονας, ο οποίος τον χρησιμοποιεί ως πειραματόζωο στις αιρετικές ψυχολογικές μελέτες του για τον ρατσισμό. Ο γιος πιστεύει ότι η πρωτοποριακή εργασία του πατέρα –και ένα βιβλίο που θα προκαλέσει αίσθηση, όταν κυκλοφορήσει– θα επιλύσει τα οικονομικά τους προβλήματα. Όταν όμως αστυνομικοί σκοτώνουν τον πατέρα του, ο πρωταγωνιστής συνειδητοποιεί ότι το μόνο που έχει στα χέρια του είναι ο λογαριασμός μιας κηδείας. Παρακινημένος από την ματαίωση και την παρακμή του τόπου του, αναλαμβάνει μια εξωφρενική πρωτοβουλία: την επαναφορά της δουλείας και του φυλετικού διαχωρισμού, πράγμα που θα τον οδηγήσει ως κατηγορούμενο στο Ανώτατο Δικαστήριο της χώρας. Ο Πουλημένος του Πωλ Μπέιτι σηματοδοτεί το δημιουργικό αποκορύφωμα ενός ιδιοφυούς συγγραφέα. Το βιβλίο τιμήθηκε με το Βραβείο Booker 2016. Το 2015 απέσπασε το Εθνικό Βραβείο του Κύκλου των Κριτικών στις ΗΠΑ. «Ο Πουλημένος είναι ένα μυθιστόρημα για την εποχή μας. Μια σύγχρονη σάτιρα, ακούραστη και ευφάνταστη, το χιούμορ της οποίας μεταμφιέζει τη ριζοσπαστική σοβαρότητα του συγγραφέα της. Ο Πωλ Μπέιτι εξουδετερώνει με τρόπο αχαλίνωτο τις “ιερές αγελάδες” και βάζει στο στόχαστρό του τα φυλετικά και πολιτικά ταμπού με οξύνοια, ζωντάνια και αμεσότητα». ΑΜΑΝΤΑ ΦΟΡΜΑΝ, πρόεδρος της κριτικής επιτροπής του Βραβείου Booker 2016 «Οι εκατό πρώτες σελίδες του Πουλημένου είναι οι πιο καυστικές και ζόρικες σε αμερικανικό μυθιστόρημα τα τελευταία δέκα χρόνια τουλάχιστον... Τα αστεία σε χτυπάνε κατευθείαν στο στομάχι... Οι αυτοσχεδιασμοί είναι ασταμάτητοι σε αυτό το σατιρικό, βαθυστόχαστο μυθιστόρημα που συνιστά σταθμό». The New York Times «Μια απίστευτη σάτιρα για τη φυλετική ταυτότητα στην Αμερική... Ο Πουλημένος συνδυάζει τη ζωηρή κωμωδία και τη δριμεία κοινωνική κριτική, αλλά το πλέον εντυπωσιακό προτέρημα του βιβλίου είναι η ολοζώντανη ανθρωπιά των χαρακτήρων του». The New Yorker «Ένα αστείο και τολμηρό βιβλίο που ανατρέπει τις επιζήμιες συμβάσεις της κουλτούρας... Είναι αυτή η συνειδητή ανατροπή... που κάνει αυτό το θαρραλέο και σκληρό μυθιστόρημα τόσο απολαυστικό». The Guardian «Ο Πουλημένος ανήκει στα σημαντικότερα και πλέον δύσκολα αμερικανικά μυθιστορήματα που έχουν γραφτεί στον 21ο αιώνα... Είναι ένα επώδυνο βιβλίο που οι αναγνώστες δύσκολα θα ξεχάσουν».

Pizza for Good is an inspiring and wildly entertaining cookbook, memoir, and philanthropic guide to building local community through food. Will Pollock, the founder of the charitable artists' collaborative ARTvision and an Atlanta-based writer, has created 20 unique recipes for specialty pizzas that emphasize locally sourced ingredients and come with a buffet of helpful kitchen tips. But Pizza for Good is also a funny, moving, and thought-provoking series of stories about Pollock's personal experience in creating a philanthropic arts organization and his community-building efforts as achieved through pizza. His aim is to not only give readers brand new ways to think about their favorite food, but to offer straightforward advice on how they can start their own "Pizza for Good" events for the causes that mean the most to them. For over ten years, Pollock has hosted a "Gourmet Pizza Extravaganza," which started as a small gathering of hungry revelers and eventually grew into an annual tradition sparking a local movement that has raised over $40,000 to date for Positive Impact, an Atlanta-based organization helping those affected by HIV and AIDS. Pizza for Good, half the proceeds of which will go to HIV and LGBT/human rights charities, chronicles this event's progression and works as a how-to guide for eager cooks, community activists, and charitable-minded do-gooders. Featuring an innovative level of interactivity between readers and author, Pizza for Good links directly to Pollock's blog to continue the conversation online and bring the book's message of community-building into the 21st century. Embedded video and music as well as digital resources that are just a touch away make Pizza for Good a completely one-of-a-kind reader experience that will change the way you think about America's favorite food.

WORDS FROM THE AUTHOR Greetings, my fellow foodophile-wordsmith! Let me tell you why I wrote this book and how you can start a writing career through your excitement for food and desire to help others enjoy life. I love food. To me, it defines important events, the course of travels and cultural experiences. I wanted to tell the story of food and share it with others so they could grow their own memories and passions. I began devouring books on food (get it?) to see how others told the story. The great Julia Child was not just a food expert; she was a word expert who taught and entertained generations with her marvelous writings. I knew I wanted to be a food writer, but I didn't know how to get started. Fortunately, chat rooms on the Internet were a growing phenomenon at the time, so I was able talk, share and listen in food communities. It was a slow learning process. Fortunately as well, I met the food editor of a major magazine who gave me invaluable advice about the business of food writing. Note the word "fortunately" in my account, as in "I was lucky..." or "I stumbled across..." Forget luck and stumbling. I want you to have a faster and smarter start to your food writing career. My book will show you how to become a food writer. As I mentioned, you'll read about my dumb luck and stumbles. You'll also see the things I got right and the techniques I use today as a professional food writer and publisher of eatquestnyc.com. You'll understand how to translate a great meal into great writing by crafting your authentic voice and avoiding clichéd and vague language. Step-by-step checklists will make sure you don't miss a single crucial detail about meals and restaurants. You'll learn how to use social media and blogging to spot trends and increase your influence. And you'll find out where the job opportunities are, how much they pay and what you have to do to win over editors and get assignments. Combining food and writing is a recipe (couldn't help it) for a unique career and one heck of a good time. Good luck! WHAT'S IN THE BOOK + A detailed breakdown of each part of a review - food, wine, service and ambiance + What a day in the life of a food writer is like + Step-by-step guide for starting a food blog + Sites, books, Twitter users and more resources for aspiring food writers + 2 sample restaurant reviews HERE ARE THE THINGS YOU'LL LEARN + The food writing industry: the many types of publications, blogs and online communities where food writers can ply their trade. + Becoming a successful food writer: the personal qualities and daily routines required to write about food and the places where it is served.
