This hilarious book serves up a cornucopia of absurd, unexpected, and downright stomach-churning ways restaurants are ditching the ordinary plate in favor of something more memorable. Fed up with being served food on planks of wood and pieces of slate, or drinks in jars? How about beef Wellington on barbed wire, a cooked breakfast on a shovel or sausages in a dog bowl? In recent years, the culinary world has been gripped by an epidemic of restaurants and chefs "getting creative" with food presentation--and Ross McGinnes has had enough. In 2015 he founded the Twitter account @WeWantPlates to push back against this trend and document serving travesties, building up more than 130,000 followers and receiving thousands of submissions. Organized by course--from starters to desserts--this wickedly funny book showcases the very "worst of" submissions as well as new material not previously published online. We Want Plates makes the perfect gift for anyone who likes their food served in the good old-fashioned way--on a plate.

The kitchen is the heart of the home – it's where we spend leisure time as a family, where we feed ourselves and where we entertain our friends. The average western family spends more money on the kitchen than they do on a car or a vacation. We fill our kitchens with objects and tools that reflect our needs, tastes and desires. There is nowhere else in daily domestic life where design impinges quite as much as in the kitchen. Every item in the kitchen has its own story. Through 100 familiar objects, The Modern Kitchen maps the progress and development of this functional yet also wildly aspirational space. Why do the Le Creuset casserole dish and the wooden salad bowl exert such a cultural hold over us? Has the accumulation of electrical appliances led us to cook and eat differently? As well as studying the individual objects that have had such a huge impact on the way we live now, The Modern Kitchen examines kitchen design, economics, and gender politics through a series of essays. Embodying notions about class, gender, wealth, and health, the home kitchen and its layout, set-up, and contents, remains a neat illustration of our beliefs, tastes, aesthetics, and aspirations – the portrait of our domestic lives.

"Within a day of receiving this book, I had consumed it... Absorbing, moving, and compulsively readable."—Lydia Davis In this affectionate, heart-warming chronicle, Rosamund Young distills a lifetime of organic farming wisdom, describing the surprising personalities of her cows and other animals At her famous Kite's Nest Farm in Worcestershire, England, the cows (as well as sheep, hens, and pigs) all roam free. They make their own choices about rearing, grazing, and housing. Left to be themselves, the cows exhibit temperaments and interests as diverse as our own. "Fat Hat" prefers men to women; "Chippy Minton" refuses to sleep with muddy legs and always reports to the barn for grooming before bed; "Jake" has a thing for sniffing the carbon monoxide fumes of the Land Rover exhaust pipe; and "Gemima" greets all humans with an angry shake of the head and is fiercely independent. An organic farmer for decades, Young has an unaffected and homely voice. Her prose brims with genuine devotion to the wellbeing of animals. Most of us never apprehend the various inner lives animals possess, least of all those that we might eat. But Young has spent countless hours observing how these creatures love, play games, and form life-long friendships. She imparts hard-won wisdom about the both moral and real-world benefits of organic farming. (If preserving the dignity of animals isn't a good enough reason for you, consider how badly factory farming stunts the growth of animals, producing unhealthy and tasteless food.) This gorgeously-illustrated book, which includes an original introduction by the legendary British playwright Alan Bennett, is the summation of a life's work, and a delightful and moving tribute to the deep richness of animal sentience.

A celebration of craftsmanship, teamwork, and the relationship between contractor and client. "An enriching and poetic tribute to manual labour."—Karl Ove Knausgaard Making Things Right is the simple yet captivating story of a loft renovation, from the moment master carpenter and contractor Ole Thorstensen submits an estimate for the job to when the space is ready for occupation. As the project unfolds, we see the construction through Ole’s eyes: the meticulous detail, the pesky splinters, the problem solving, patience, and teamwork required for its completion. Yet Ole’s narrative encompasses more than just the fine mechanics of his craft. His labor and passion drive him toward deeper reflections on the nature of work, the academy versus the trades, identity, and life itself. Rich with descriptions of carpentry and process, Making Things Right is a warm and humorous portrayal of a tightknit working community, a story about the blood, sweat, and frustration involved in doing a job well and the joys in seeing a vision take shape.

As the daughter of an Italian farming family, Solfrini grew up eating fresh, local, seasonal foods, but when she moved to New York City to study design, she quickly felt the damaging effects that came with eating a new diet filled with processed foods, too much meat, and too few vegetables. When she returned to Italy, she embraced the seasonal, vegetable-friendly foods of her youth once more, and after eliminating meat from her diet, felt better than ever. Surrounded by the countryside and living on her family's farm, the inspiration to live naturally and healthfully was everywhere and she started her blog to show the world just how fresh, beautiful, and healthful vegetarian Italian cooking could be. Naturally Vegetarian is an extension of Hortus Cusine, and will be filled with more of Solfrini's arrestingly beautiful photography of rural Italian scenery, authentic tales of Italian farm life and customs through the ages, and more of the delicious vegetarian recipes her fans have come to know and love. Naturally Vegetarian will offer readers a glimpse of a year on an Italian farm and the recipes that come with the changing of the seasons. She also shares how to stock a whole foods Italian pantry, introducing them to new ingredients like chestnut flour, farro, and tomato passata, and the fundamental recipes and techniques for preparing and cooking fresh pasta.

For many plant lovers, winter seems like a lost time. The bursts of color and distinctive leaf shapes disappear, leaving what seems like ambiguous branches. But there is no need for botanical enthusiasts to hunker down until spring. What we overlook as "dead trees" are simply shoots covered up for the season. If we look closer, we'll see that trees and shrubs have distinct shapes to their buds and twigs that allow them to be classified reliably in winter. While most books focus on identifying leaves and other seasonal characteristics, this practical guide is one of the few that will allow gardeners to identify trees and shrubs while they are in their dormant state. It covers more than seven hundred species and includes easy-to-use illustrated identification keys. More than 1,400 color images make it even easier to spot the distinctive pieces of these plants.
