Food at Sea: Shipboard Cuisine from Ancient to Modern Times traces the preservation, preparation, and consumption of food at sea, over a period of several thousand years, and in a variety of cultures. The book traces the development of cooking aboard in ancient and medieval times, through the development of seafaring traditions of storing and preparing food on the world’s seas and oceans. Following a largely chronological format, Simon Spalding shows how the raw materials, cooking and eating equipments, and methods of preparation of seafarers have both reflected the shoreside practices of their cultures, and differed from them. The economies of whole countries have developed around foods that could survive long trips by sea, and new technologies have evolved to expand the available food choices at sea. Changes in ship construction and propulsion have compelled changes in food at sea, and Spalding’s book explores these changes in cargo ships, passenger ships, warships, and other types over the centuries in fascinating depth of detail. Selected passages from songs and poems, quotes from seafarers famous and obscure, and new insights into culinary history all add spice to the tale.

Since 1492, the distinct cultures, peoples, and languages of four continents have met in the Caribbean and intermingled in wave after wave of post-Columbian encounters, with foods and their styles of preparation being among the most consumable of the converging cultural elements. This book traces the pathways of migrants and travellers and the mixing of their cultures in the Caribbean from the Atlantic slave trade to the modern tourism economy. As an object of cultural exchange and global trade, food offers an intriguing window into this world. The many topics covered in the book include foodways, Atlantic history, the slave trade, the importance of sugar, the place of food in African-derived religion, resistance, sexuality and the Caribbean kitchen, contemporary Caribbean identity, and the politics of the new globalisation. The author draws on archival sources and European written descriptions to reconstruct African foodways in the diaspora and places them in the context of archaeology and oral traditions, performance arts, ritual, proverbs, folktales, and the children's song game "Congotay." Enriching the presentation are sixteen recipes located in special boxes throughout the book.

This book provides summaries and analyses of more than 250 novels and nearly 30 films and examines the extent to which they accurately reflect the history, mores and manners of the period—and the extent to which they reveal the ideas and attitudes of their authors and of the periods in which they were written. Particular emphasis is placed on the nature and importance of the war at sea for the British and on the role of famous naval officers such as Nelson, Pellew, Duncan, Smith and Cochrane in the defeat of Napoleon.

In Life at Sea, anthropologist Monique Layton draws on her experiences on modern cruise ships to examine the evolution of sailing from the Age of Exploration to the Age of Tourism. Using historical records and the reports of people who once went to sea through necessity, curiosity, or adventure, she shows the common events that have shaped their voyages and the ingenuity, courage, and determination that characterize mankind's connection with the all-surrounding sea. The book's topics range from the dependence on the wind and manpower through the invention of devices to determine location at sea to modern maritime technology, from the devastation of scurvy and starvation on early ships of exploration and trade to the luxuries of omnipresent food, on-board medical treatment, and professional entertainment available on behemoth cruise ships. The book also delves into the deeper meaning of seafarers' rituals and their harsh lives with severe discipline and few rewards. These aspects along with the horrors of the slave trade and naval warfare, the harrowing crossings of emigrants and convicts, the ambiguities of piracy, and economics of global trade all show the contradictory elements that have consistently shaped travel by sea....

To most people of the Mediterranean region, garlic, wine, and olive oil make up the Holy Trinity of foods: Garlic for taste and health; wine also for its medicinal value, plus the obvious enjoyment and relaxation that accompanies its use; and olive oil as a medium for cooking as well as for its own healthy properties. The many cultural and mythic dimensions of these three foods, whose use dates to pre-historic times, is discussed, along with an historical survey from Old World usage to the New, specifically to Brooklyn, New York, where the author grew up in a milieu of Italian, Jewish, and Greek neighborhoods, where garlic, wine, and olive oil were daily staples.With illustrations, historical quotes and facts, personal memoir, and both ancient as well as over 50 modern recipes, Garlic, Wine, and Olive Oil tells how reverence for these three foods was first developed in the Mediterranean and became integrated into cuisines around the world. In a tight, informative narrative, Thomas Pellechia covers the origins, cultivation, healthful attributes and preparation of these three holy foods.Rather than a dry history book or gathering of recipes, Garlic, Wine, and Olive Oil educates as it entertains, weaving together historical material (including many interesting ancient recipes), the author's ancestral connection to these foods, plus his travels through Europe and the Near East, and quick, easy-to-prepare, appetizing recipes. This unique format makes cooking and history come alive!

This book is about a long journey by sea, from Fremantle, in Western Australia, to Whitby, in Yorkshire. It took 139 days and the author and his shipmates travelled 16,626 miles. They were crewing on board the Endeavour Replica, modelled on Captain Cook's ship, in which he completed a similar journey in the opposite direction in the eighteenth century. The journey is full of hazards and privations, like Cook's own journey, and the adventures and the vicissitudes are well described and well remembered. The author celebrated his 59th. birthday close to the spot on the earth's surface that is furthest from any land.

This book considers the practices and techniques fans utilize to interact with different aspects and elements of food cultures. With attention to food cultures across nations, societies, cultures, and historical periods, the collected essays consider the rituals and values of fan communities as reflections of their food culture, whether in relation to particular foods or types of food, those who produce them, or representations of them. Presenting various theoretical and methodological approaches, the anthology brings together a series of empirical studies to examine the intersection of two fields of cultural practice and will appeal to sociologists, geographers and scholars of cultural studies with interests in fan studies and food cultures.

A simple shrub is made from fruit, sugar, and . . . vinegar? Raise your glass to a surprising new taste sensation for cocktails and sophisticated sodas: Shrubs. Not the kind that grow in the ground, but a vintage drink mixer that will knock your socks off. “Mixologists across the country are reaching back through the centuries to reclaim vinegar’s more palatable past . . . embracing it as ‘the other acid,’ an alternative to the same-old-same-old lemons and limes,” said the New York Times. The history of shrubs, as revealed here, is as fascinating as the drinks are refreshing. These sharp and tangy infusions are simple to make and use, as you’ll discover with these recipes. Mix up some Red Currant Shrub for a Vermouth Cassis, or Apple Cinnamon Shrub to mix with seltzer, or develop your own with Michael Dietsch’s directions and step-by-step photographs. “Imagine a fizzy, soda-like drink that is drier and so much more sophisticated than soda, what with the sugar and botanical ingredients. Shrubs! Amazing! Wonderful!!” —Amy Stewart, author of The Drunken Botanist

Winner of the Society for Economic Anthropology Annual Book Prize 2008. Belize, a tiny corner of the Caribbean wedged into Central America, has been a fast food nation since buccaneers and pirates first stole ashore. As early as the 1600s it was already caught in the great paradox of globalization: how can you stay local and relish your own home cooking, while tasting the delights of the global marketplace? Menus, recipes and bad colonial poetry combine with Wilk's sharp anthropological insight to give an important new perspective on the perils and problems of globalization.

A beautiful revised edition, with foreword by Paul Clarke, and 10 new recipes. "A shrub is exactly what the people who invented the phrase 'slake your thirst' had in mind. A shrub is full of character and variety. The ingredients—fruit, sugar, and vinegar—are as simple as can be. But the variations are seemingly unlimited. It has another superpower: A strong shrub game can help you make the most of bruised or aging summer fruit." –The New York Times, in an article featuring Shrubs Michael Dietsch took the mixology community by storm when he brought back a popular drink from colonial times, the shrub. Not the green, leafy kind that grow in the ground, but a vintage drink mixer that can be spiked with alcohol or prepared as a soda. Drinkers, bartenders, and the media embraced the book. This new edition features a foreword by Paul Clarke, the Executive Editor of Imbibe magazine and author of The Cocktail Chronicles. Here is the definitive guide to making and using shrubs.

NOTE: NO FURTHER DISCOUNT ON THIS PRINT PRODUCT-- OVERSTOCK SALE -- Significantly reduced list price Twenty essays selected from the writings of John B. Hattendorf, Ernest J. King Professor of Maritime History at the U.S. Naval War College, between 2001 and 2009. They represent a wide historical perspective that ranges across nearly four centuries of maritime history.

This collection is divided into parts that deal with four major themes: the broad field of maritime history; general naval history, with specific focus on the classical age of sail, from the mid-seventeenth century to the end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815; the wide scope of American naval history from 1775 to the end of the twentieth century; and finally, the realm of naval theory and its relationship to naval historical studies. They are reprinted, with only minor alterations, as they originally appeared. This work may appeal to general history readers, scholarly and general adult readers of history especially naval and maritime, plus students pursuing coursework in military science degree programs.

He applies his satirical wit, wisdom, and a touch of philosophy to the everyday dramas of suburban life. In this second collection of essays, originally broadcast on National Public Radio stations WSHU and WSUF in Long Island and Connecticut, he explores and explains such quintessentially suburban themes as: the the trauma of an empty driveway; romance in the catering hall; a visit from the exterminator; the metaphysics of golf; and the lament of the suburban commuter.

A collection of three Dismas Hardy classics by master storyteller John Lescroart, in what has been described by Lee Child as 'Today's best legal series'. Perfect for fans of John Grisham and William J. Coughlin. The First Law: An elderly shop owner is found dead. Glitsky is hitting brick walls as he tries to get help from homicide, while Hardy finds himself defending a friend who's been accused of the death. Blocked at every turn, Hardy and Glitsky are forced to protect themselves, as well as their nearest and dearest, as they step into a world where the only law is survival... The Second Chair: Hardy has a high-profile and challenging case: a seventeen-year-old arrested for the double slaying of his girlfriend and his teacher. With little belief in his client's innocence, and even less in the legal system, Hardy has to conquer his own demons if he is to clear his client...and save himself. The Motive: Glitsky is thrust into a controversial double homicide investigation. Convinced the officer has the wrong suspect - Hardy's old girlfriend - he breaks ranks to continue his own investigation. And so begins a search that reveals a trail of deception that leads beyond San Francisco, where exposing secrets can be the most deadly offence... What readers are saying about the Dismas Hardy series: 'The storylines are always strong and each book is satisfying on every level' 'If you like courtroom drama and legal thrillers, this series never disappoints' 'The more we get to know Dismas Hardy and the other characters of John Lescroart's San Francisco, the more we appreciate them as well-drawn, three-dimensional characters'

A revealing and insightful look at one of the modern world’s most acclaimed historical novelists Patrick O’Brian was well into his seventies when the world fell in love with his greatest creation: the maritime adventures of Royal Navy Captain Jack Aubrey and ship’s surgeon Stephen Maturin. But despite his fame, little detail was available about the life of the reclusive author, whose mysterious past King uncovers in this groundbreaking biography. King traces O’Brian’s personal history, beginning as a London-born Protestant named Richard Patrick Russ, to his tortured relationship with his first wife and child, to his emergence from World War II with the entirely new identity under which he would publish twenty volumes in the Aubrey–Maturin series. What King unearths is a life no less thrilling than the seafaring world of O’Brian’s imagination.
