Il profumo di vaniglia e cioccolato riempie la stanza in soffici ondate sovrapposte all’aroma pungente e speziato della cannella. È lunedì, nel ristorante di Lillian è giorno di chiusura, e come ogni settimana si tengono le lezioni del corso di cucina. Circondata dagli allievi, Lillian è in piedi dietro al piano di lavoro: muove delicatamente le mani, sta per aggiungere l’ultimo tocco, l’ingrediente segreto, e poi la torta sarà pronta. Pronta ad addolcire un momento di tristezza, a suggellare una promessa, a regalare un briciolo di felicità. Nessuno meglio di Lillian conosce la magia degli ingredienti, nessuno meglio di lei sa che a volte basta una tazza di cioccolata per cambiare un po’ la vita. Era solo una bambina quando, grazie a una misteriosa ricetta donatale da Abuelita, la donna della bottega delle spezie, ha salvato sua madre. Sono passati anni da allora, anni in cui ha combattuto, ha sofferto, si è ribellata, a volte ha perso ogni certezza, tranne una: la fiducia nella magica alchimia del cibo. È per questo che il suo ristorante, con piatti sempre diversi, è un luogo speciale, dove si ritrovano ricordi perduti, si stringono promesse d’amore o nasce un’amicizia. Lo sanno bene gli allievi del corso di cucina, tutti alla ricerca dell’ingrediente segreto che ancora manca alla loro vita. Come Claire, giovane madre insicura, o Tom, che ha appena perso la moglie; Chloe, ragazza maldestra e vitale; Isabelle, che non ricorda nulla tranne le ricette. Per tutti loro Lillian ha la soluzione: sa che le tortillas restituiscono il gusto piccante dell’avventura, che una soffice glassa può far dimenticare un tradimento e che un ragù al pomodoro schiude le porte di un nuovo amore. Quello che non sa, o che a volte perde di vista, è la ricetta giusta per lei. Potrà ritrovarla solo se accetterà di mettersi alla prova, almeno una volta. Un romanzo memorabile. Venduto in tutto il mondo, è stato proclamato dalle librerie indipendenti americane come il miglior debutto dell’anno. Un libro sui piaceri e sulla magia del cibo, un’alchimia di sapori e sentimenti che racconta una storia di speranza e amore, di gioia e di sorprese.

Drawing on newly declassified government files, this is the dramatic story of how a forbidden book in the Soviet Union became a secret CIA weapon in the ideological battle between East and West. In May 1956, an Italian publishing scout took a train to a village just outside Moscow to visit Russia’s greatest living poet, Boris Pasternak. He left carrying the original manuscript of Pasternak’s first and only novel, entrusted to him with these words: “This is Doctor Zhivago. May it make its way around the world.” Pasternak believed his novel was unlikely ever to be published in the Soviet Union, where the authorities regarded it as an irredeemable assault on the 1917 Revolution. But he thought it stood a chance in the West and, indeed, beginning in Italy, Doctor Zhivago was widely published in translation throughout the world. From there the life of this extraordinary book entered the realm of the spy novel. The CIA, which recognized that the Cold War was above all an ideological battle, published a Russian-language edition of Doctor Zhivago and smuggled it into the Soviet Union. Copies were devoured in Moscow and Leningrad, sold on the black market, and passed surreptitiously from friend to friend. Pasternak’s funeral in 1960 was attended by thousands of admirers who defied their government to bid him farewell. The example he set launched the great tradition of the writer-dissident in the Soviet Union. In The Zhivago Affair, Peter Finn and Petra Couvée bring us intimately close to this charming, passionate, and complex artist. First to obtain CIA files providing concrete proof of the agency’s involvement, the authors give us a literary thriller that takes us back to a fascinating period of the Cold War—to a time when literature had the power to stir the world. (With 8 pages of black-and-white illustrations.) From the Hardcover edition.

“Oggi ho incontrato la donna dei miei sogni. Era seduta al Café Flore, al mio tavolo preferito. Sfortunatamente però non era sola. Un uomo piuttosto attraente le stava accanto e le stringeva la mano. Sono un libraio, e se hai a che fare con i libri tutti i giorni, se vivi immerso nei romanzi, a un certo punto inizi a credere che nella vita possano accadere molte più cose del previsto. Forse sono un inguaribile romantico, ma chi dice che quello che capita in un libro non possa succedere anche nella realtà? Ed ecco infatti che qualcosa è successo davvero. La donna dei miei sogni si è alzata e ha lasciato un bigliettino sul mio tavolo mentre mi passava vicino. Un nome, un numero. Nient’altro. Il mio cuore ha fatto un salto. E così sono iniziate le ventiquattr’ore più eccitanti della mia vita.” Ma quel che promette di essere un rendez-vous romantico si trasforma ben presto in una cocente delusione: il numero di telefono non si legge bene e Antoine, l’intraprendente proprietario della Librairie du Soleil a Saint-Germain-des-Prés, deve buttarsi in una rocambolesca avventura per ritrovare la donna con l’ombrello rosso che lo ha stregato.

Science in the Kitchen and the Art of Eating Well

First published in 1891, Pellegrino Artusi?s La scienza in cucina e l?arte di mangier bene has come to be recognized as the most significant Italian cookbook of modern times. It was reprinted thirteen times and had sold more than 52,000 copies in the years before Artusi?s death in 1910, with the number of recipes growing from 475 to 790. And while this figure has not changed, the book has consistently remained in print. Although Artusi was himself of the upper classes and it was doubtful he had ever touched a kitchen utensil or lit a fire under a pot, he wrote the book not for professional chefs, as was the nineteenth-century custom, but for middle-class family cooks: housewives and their domestic helpers. His tone is that of a friendly advisor ? humorous and nonchalant. He indulges in witty anecdotes about many of the recipes, describing his experiences and the historical relevance of particular dishes. Artusi?s masterpiece is not merely a popular cookbook; it is a landmark work in Italian culture. This English edition (first published by Marsilio Publishers in 1997) features a delightful introduction by Luigi Ballerini that traces the fascinating history of the book and explains its importance in the context of Italian history and politics. The illustrations are by the noted Italian artist Giuliano Della Casa.

It really is my favourite recent seriesƒ there's never a dull moment at Cimmeria Academy! FlutteringButterflies.com 'Just the other day I was sitting here, chatting with a friend and shamelessly making fun of boarding school books (with a few exceptions, of course), and now I am forced to eat my words. Or just add Night School to that very short list of exceptions. I adore Cimmeria Academy. I adore the idea behind it, I adore the teachers and I desperately want to be an advanced Night School student. (Only I'm not very athletic so that would never, ever work.) This series is a new favorite of mine.' TheNocturnalLibrary.com 'Night School is dramatic and full of great characters, the perfect blend of suspense and romance.' Sophie McKenzie 'Imagine a mixture of Hogwarts and Mallory Towers but filled with murder instead of magic. That is what you getƒ A chilling, nerve racking, nail biting thriller that left me wanting more.' Serendipity Reviews
Iris Grace

Iris Grace

Publisher: Skyhorse Publishing, Inc.
ISBN: 1510719806

Iris Grace is a beautiful little girl who, from a very young age, barely communicated, avoided social interaction with other people, and rarely smiled. From both before her diagnosis of autism and after, she seemed trapped in her own world, unable to connect with those around her. One day, her mother brought home a Maine Coon kitten for Iris, even though cats aren’t typically thought of as therapy pets. Thula, named after one of Iris’s favorite African lullabies and meaning “peace” in Zulu, immediately bonded with Iris. Thula knew right away how to assuage Iris when she became overstimulated; when to intervene when Iris became overwhelmed; and how to provide distraction when Iris started heading toward a meltdown. Whether exploring, playing, sleeping, or taking a bath with Iris or accompanying the family on a bike ride, Thula became so much more than a therapy cat. With Thula’s safe companionship, Iris began to talk and interact with her family. This heartwarming story is illustrated with sixty of Iris’s gorgeous impressionistic paintings, works of art that have allowed her to express herself since the age of three. A gifted artist, Iris sees the natural world in a profoundly vivid and visceral way. With Thula by her side, she’ll sit and paint for hours, and the results are stunning. Inspiring and touching, Iris Grace follows the struggles and triumphs of a family—and a miracle cat—as they learn to connect with an amazing child.

Memorial

Memorial

Author: Ferdinando Camon
Publisher: Northwestern University Press
ISBN: 0810160137
Pages: 122
Year: 1996
This novel is the third part of the celebrated trilogy Camon called "the cycle of the lowliest," which traced one of the most important but least recognized events of modern history: the death of Italy's peasant civilization. Camon's northern Italy was primitive and poor; little more than strong religious beliefs helped to sustain the populace through years of poverty, hunger, and disease. With the arrival of the "civilizing" aspects of modern life, however, the peasant way of life, and all it stood for, changed forever. Memorial is the final installment in Camon's attempt to capture and immortalize the ageless peasant world. The first two books in the trilogy, The Fifth Estate and Life Everlasting, are also available from The Marlboro Press/Northwestern.

Persona dai gusti letterari colti, raffinati, di grande nicchia, Roberto Cicala è amante di quei testi un po’ sfiziosi, privilegio delle minoranze, che pochi sanno apprezzare, come plaquettes in edizioni numerate, libretti in sedicesimo di cui sopravvivono diciassette esemplari, volumi che hanno attraversato i secoli sfuggendo a incendi, devastazioni, terremoti o mille altre tragedie, e prelibatezze simili. In questo, come in molti altri aspetti, mi ricorda il mio maestro, Vanni Scheiwiller, che questi gusti condivideva ed elevava all’ennesima potenza (tra i libri di narrativa che aveva pubblicato, diceva spesso, uno dei più amati era il romanzo Ravenna, di Antonio Pizzuto: che nell’anno della pubblicazione in tutto il centro-sud aveva venduto una sola copia, al dopolavoro dello stabilimento Olivetti di Pozzuoli, il cui bibliotecario credeva che fosse una guida turistica). Naturale che una persona di questi gusti, quando si parla di cibo, apprezzi in modo particolare gli assaggi; e che, una volta in cattedra, decida di condividere questa attitudine con i suoi allievi. E così, visto che in questo anno di grazia 2015 sembra impossibile non parlare del cibo in tutte le salse (per l’appunto), ecco che l’idea dell’assaggio si è impadronita prepotentemente anche del Laboratorio di editoria della Cattolica presieduto da Cicala. Il risultato è questo delizioso menu, doverosamente diviso nelle portate canoniche – antipasti “per iniziare”, i primi, secondi, con ricche scelte tra carne e pesce, eccetera eccetera, fino alla doverosa lista di vini – che compone una sfilata pantagruelica, degna di alcuni protagonisti della nostra letteratura eroicomica come Morgante e Margutte Tratto dalla Presentazione
