"Well reported and heartfelt, Ruhlman communicates the passion that draws the acolyte to this precise and frantic profession."—The New York Times Book Review Just over a decade ago, journalist Michael Ruhlman donned a chef's jacket and houndstooth-check pants to join the students at the Culinary Institute of America, the country's oldest and most influential cooking school. But The Making of a Chef is not just about holding a knife or slicing an onion; it's also about the nature and spirit of being a professional cook and the people who enter the profession. As Ruhlman—now an expert on the fundamentals of cooking—recounts his growing mastery of the skills of his adopted profession, he propels himself and his readers through a score of kitchens and classrooms in search of the elusive, unnameable elements of great food. Incisively reported, with an insider's passion and attention to detail, The Making of a Chef remains the most vivid and compelling memoir of a professional culinary education on record.

Ein Buch wie ein Messer – scharf, kompromisslos und ein bisschen blutig Er führte ein Millionenpublikum hinter die Fassade der Nobel Cuisine – und zeigte uns die infernalischen Abgründe der Gastronomie. Seine Küche im legendären „Les Halles” in New York City war von derselben Leidenschaft, Besessenheit und Kompromisslosigkeit durchströmt wie die Bücher, die ihn auch als Autor weltberühmt machten – allen voran »Geständnisse eines Küchenchefs«. Heute, ein Jahrzehnt später, sind ratgebende Starköche medienpräsenter als schaumschlagende Politiker. Das Kochen ist vom Handwerk zum Hobby und schließlich zur Lifestyle-Rubrik mutiert – zur quotenheischenden Wohlfühlberieselung. In seinem neuen Buch rechnet Anthony Bourdain mit diesem „Imperium der Mittelmäßigkeit” ab und erinnert daran, was in einer Küche fließen muss. Nicht Balsamicoreduktion, sondern Blut, Schweiß und Tränen. Mit 28 Jahren Berufserfahrung in den härtesten Küchen der Welt, der Zen-Weisheit eines Lebenskünstlers und dem ungetrübten Blick eines Outlaws gibt Bourdain schnörkellose Antworten auf brennende Fragen. Warum bezahlen die reichsten Menschen der Welt verlässlich Unsummen für den schlechtesten Fraß? Warum machen die renommiertesten Köche Werbung für den größten Schrott? Was muss jeder Mensch kochen können, um als mündiger Bürger durchzugehen? Anthony Bourdains Aufruf für eine neue Küche ist denkbar einfach: weniger Bullshit, mehr Genuss!

„›Sweetbitter‹ wird eine Menge Leute hungrig machen.“ The New York Times Eigentlich wollte Tess nicht Kellnerin werden. Sie wollte ihrer provinziellen Herkunft entkommen, in die Großstadt eintauchen und endlich herausfinden, wofür sie geschaffen ist. Doch dann landet sie in einem edlen New Yorker Restaurant und es ist wie der Eintritt in ein neues Universum, in dem ganz eigene Regeln und Gesetze herrschen, in dem der falsche Wein im falschen Moment zum Verhängnis werden kann. Oder die Ignoranz gegenüber der Einzigartigkeit einer Auster. Sweetbitter ist ein großer Roman über den Genuss und die Obsession – darüber, dass man manchmal besessen sein muss, um wirklich genießen zu können. „Eine rohe, schnörkellose, beißende, wilde Liebesgeschichte.“ People Magazine

Michael Ruhlman’s groundbreaking New York Times bestseller takes us to the very “truth” of cooking: it is not about recipes but rather about basic ratios and fundamental techniques that makes all food come together, simply. When you know a culinary ratio, it’s not like knowing a single recipe, it’s instantly knowing a thousand. Why spend time sorting through the millions of cookie recipes available in books, magazines, and on the Internet? Isn’t it easier just to remember 1-2-3? That’s the ratio of ingredients that always make a basic, delicious cookie dough: 1 part sugar, 2 parts fat, and 3 parts flour. From there, add anything you want—chocolate, lemon and orange zest, nuts, poppy seeds, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, almond extract, or peanut butter, to name a few favorite additions. Replace white sugar with brown for a darker, chewier cookie. Add baking powder and/or eggs for a lighter, airier texture. Ratios are the starting point from which a thousand variations begin. Ratios are the simple proportions of one ingredient to another. Biscuit dough is 3:1:2—or 3 parts flour, 1 part fat, and 2 parts liquid. This ratio is the beginning of many variations, and because the biscuit takes sweet and savory flavors with equal grace, you can top it with whipped cream and strawberries or sausage gravy. Vinaigrette is 3:1, or 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar, and is one of the most useful sauces imaginable, giving everything from grilled meats and fish to steamed vegetables or lettuces intense flavor. Cooking with ratios will unchain you from recipes and set you free. With thirty-three ratios and suggestions for enticing variations, Ratio is the truth of cooking: basic preparations that teach us how the fundamental ingredients of the kitchen—water, flour, butter and oils, milk and cream, and eggs—work. Change the ratio and bread dough becomes pasta dough, cakes become muffins become popovers become crepes. As the culinary world fills up with overly complicated recipes and never-ending ingredient lists, Michael Ruhlman blasts through the surplus of information and delivers this innovative, straightforward book that cuts to the core of cooking. Ratio provides one of the greatest kitchen lessons there is—and it makes the cooking easier and more satisfying than ever.

Recognized for its poise and fashion, Miami Beach embodies the best elements of the new American city: cultural diversity, imaginative architecture, and dazzling scenery. In many aspects, Miami Beach is a metropolitan masterpiece, sculpted by the careful hands of visionary entrepreneurs against a magnificent coastal backdrop. The evolution of Miami Beach from a small, uninhabited strip of palmetto scrub and swamp into an internationally-renowned resort is a fascinating tale of human ingenuity, endurance, and foresight. A milestone in the city's development, the year 1920 marked many significant improvement, such as the new County Causeway bridge, and many "firsts" for the expanding hamlet, including the first electric trolley, the first automated telephone system, and its first post office building. Readers of all ages will be thoroughly entertained as they explore their Miami Beach of yesteryear: a time of Prohibition and bootlegging, grand hotels and lavish casinos, budding polo fields and golf courses, and the many distinct personalities that added color and life to this burgeoning town.

Without question, the original rock-star chef is Marco Pierre White. Anyone with even a passing interest in the food world knows White is a legend. The first British chef (and the youngest chef anywhere) to win three Michelin stars - and also the only chef ever to give them all back - is a chain-smoking, pot-throwing multiply- married culinary genius whose fierce devotion to food and restaurants has been the only constant in a life of tabloid-ready turmoil. In The Devil in the Kitchen White tells the story behind his ascent from working-class roots to culinary greatness, leaving no dish unserved as he relays raucus and revealing tales featuring some of the biggest names in the food world and beyond, including: Mario Batali, Gordon Ramsay, Albert Roux, Raymond Blanc, Michael Caine, Damien Hirst, and even Prince Charles. With candid honesty and wicked humor, he gives us insight into what it takes to become a great chef, what it's like to run a 3-star kitchen, and why sometimes you really do need to throw a cheese plate at the wall.
