  • Killer Cocktails : An Intoxicating Guide to Sophisticated Drinking (Hands-Free Step-By-Step Guides)

    • Author: David Wondrich
    • Binding: Spiral-bound
    • Price: $19.95

    Killer Cocktails is a unique hands-free, stand-up guide with all the advice and guidelines you need to set up a home bar and learn the art of mixing cocktails the right way. The drinks you'll find in here avoid novelty products, artificial flavors, and colors not found in nature. They're heavy on tradition and light on trendiness. You also might learn a thing or two, from the origins of the John Collins (no Toms, Dicks, or Harrys here) to why the Daiquiri should be resurrected from its status as the wimp of all cocktails (it was JFK's fave, after all).

    And that's not all. While respecting the traditions of balance and simplicity that our mixological forefathers founded, Killer Cocktails also shows you how to be creative. First you master the basics and only then can you start substituting vanilla vodka for rum, or rhubarb for raspberry. But if you're simply in the mood for a Rye Old-Fashioned, the real recipe is right here.Very helpfull for people who are looking for bartending or restaurant jobs.

  • Barolo to Valpolicella : The Wines of Northern Italy (Mitchell Beazley Classic Wine Guide)

    • Author: Nicolas Belfrage
    • Binding: Hardcover
    • Price: $29.95

    From the author of the award-winning Life Beyond Lambrusco, a comprehensive guide to the wonderful wines of Northern Italy.

    Wine is, and has been since time immemorial, the lifeblood of Italy-and in the late twentieth century, it has also become hugely popular around the world. Such is their variety today that Italian wines, ranging from a classic Piemonte red like Barbaresco to the Veneto's elegant white Soave Classico, have come to be considered both fine wines to be savored and affordable wines that can be drunk every day. In Barolo to Valpolicella, Nicolas Belfrage explores the mysteries of Northern Italian viniculture, focusing on dozens of wines ranging from the normale to the highest-quality single-vineyard masterpieces. Using many local and international grape varieties as signposts, he guides the reader through such magical areas as Valpolicella, South Tyrol, and Trentino as well as the hills of Bologna and the Po Valley plain, where Lambrusco wines really did once hang from trees. Enhancing his text with an extensive listing of producers, a helpful glossary of Italian terms, and even a guide to pronouncing Italian words, Belfrage has written one of the most complete and accessible guides to today's Italian wines yet to be published.


    Nicolas Belfrage is a regular contributor to Decanter magazine. He divides his working life between Florence, Italy, and London, England. Very helpfull for people who are looking for bartending or restaurant jobs.
