Mission Street Food: Recipes and Ideas from an ...
23,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Mission Street Food is a restaurant. But it's also a charitable organization, a taco truck, a burger stand, and a clubhouse for inventive cooks tucked inside an unassuming Chinese take-out place. In all its various incarnations, it upends traditional restaurant conventions, in search of moral and culinary satisfaction. Like Mission Street Food itself, this book is more than one thing: it's a cookbook featuring step-by-step photography and sly commentary, but it's also the memoir of a madcap project that redefined the authors' marriage and a city's food scene. Along with stories and recipes, you'll find an idealistic business plan, a cheeky manifesto, and thoughtful essays on issues ranging from food pantries to fried chicken. Plus, a comic. Ultimately, "Mission Street Food: Recipes and Ideas from an Improbable Restaurant" presents an iconoclastic vision of cooking and eating in twenty-first century America.

A Girl Named Zippy: Growing Up Small in Moorela...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

When Haven Kimmel was born in 1965, Mooreland, Indiana, was a sleepy little hamlet of 300 people. Nicknamed "Zippy" for the way she would bolt around the house, this small girl was possessed of big eyes and even bigger ears. In this witty and lovingly told memoir, Kimmel takes readers back to a time when small-town America was caught in the amber of the innocent postwar period - people helped their neighbors, went to church on Sunday, and kept barnyard animals in their backyards. Laced with fine storytelling, sharp wit, dead-on observations, and moments of sheer joy, Haven Kimmel's straight-shooting portrait of her childhood gives us a heroine who is wonderfully sweet and sly as she navigates the quirky adult world that surrounds Zippy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Haven Kimmel. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/high/000293/bk_high_000293_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Coyote America: A Natural and Supernatural Hist...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

With its uncanny night howls, unrivaled ingenuity, and amazing resilience, the coyote is the stuff of legends. In Indian folktales it often appears as a deceptive trickster or a sly genius. But legends don't come close to capturing the incredible survival story of the coyote. As soon as Americans - especially white Americans - began ranching and herding in the West, they began working to destroy the coyote. Despite campaigns of annihilation employing poisons, gases, helicopters, and engineered epidemics, coyotes didn't just survive, they thrived, expanding across the continent from Anchorage, Alaska, to New York's Central Park. In the war between humans and coyotes, coyotes have won hands down. Coyote America is both an environmental and a deep natural history of the coyote. It traces both the five-million-year-long biological story of an animal that has become the "wolf" in our backyards and its cultural evolution from a preeminent spot in Native American religions to the hapless foil of the Road Runner. A deeply American tale, the story of the coyote in the American West and beyond is a sort of Manifest Destiny in reverse, with a pioneering hero whose career holds up an uncanny mirror to the successes and failures of American expansionism. An illuminating biography of this extraordinary animal, Coyote America isn't just the story of an animal's survival - it is one of the great epics of our time. 1. Language: English.

Sour Heart: Stories , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 600min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A sly debut story collection that conjures the experience of adolescence through the eyes of Chinese American girls growing up in New York City - for listeners of Zadie Smith, Helen Oyeyemi, and Junot Díaz. A fresh new voice emerges with the arrival of Sour Heart, establishing Jenny Zhang as a frank and subversive interpreter of the immigrant experience in America. Her stories cut across generations and continents, moving from the fraught halls of a public school in Flushing, Queens, to the tumultuous streets of Shanghai, China, during the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s. In the absence of grown-ups, latchkey kids experiment on each other until one day the experiments turn violent; an overbearing mother abandons her artistic aspirations to come to America but relives her glory days through karaoke; and a shy loner struggles to master English so she can speak to God. Narrated by the daughters of Chinese immigrants who fled imperiled lives as artists back home only to struggle to stay afloat - Dumpster diving for food and scamming Atlantic City casino buses to make a buck - these seven stories showcase Zhang's compassion, moral courage, and a perverse sense of humor reminiscent of Portnoy's Complaint. A darkly funny and intimate rendering of girlhood, Sour Heart examines what it means to belong to a family and to find your home, leave it, reject it, and return again. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Greta Jung, Jenny Zhang, full cast. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/005225/bk_rand_005225_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

The Middlesteins: A Novel , Hörbuch, Digital, 1...

For more than 30 years, Edie and Richard Middlestein shared a solid family life together in the suburbs of Chicago. But now things are splintering apart, for one reason, it seems: Edie's enormous girth. She's obsessed with food - thinking about it, eating it - and if she doesn't stop, she won't have much longer to live. When Richard abandons his wife, it is up to the next generation to take control. Robin, their schoolteacher daughter, is determined that her father pay for leaving Edie. Benny, an easy-going, pot-smoking family man, just wants to smooth things over. And Rachelle - a whippet thin perfectionist - is intent on saving her mother-in-law's life, but this task proves even bigger than planning her twin children's spectacular b'nai mitzvah party. Through it all, they wonder: do Edie's devastating choices rest on her shoulders alone? Or are others at fault, too? With pitch-perfect prose, huge compassion, and sly humor, Jami Attenberg has given us an epic story of marriage, family, and obsession. The Middlesteins explores the hopes and heartbreaks of new and old love, the yearnings of Midwestern America, and our devastating, fascinating preoccupation with food. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Molly Ringwald. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/hach/001040/bk_hach_001040_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Tiger has lost almost everything. Her village. Her community. Her father. But her brother, Tarren, who has been kidnapped by the deadheads that razed her village, still lives. With only the loyal but enigmatic old man, Sai, to guide her into the nightmare-jungle that was once North America, Tiger must face her greatest fears in a race to save her brother before he is lobotomized, even while the world around her is bled dry by Those That Watch. The Watchers are in the end-stages of stripping the planet of its mineral resources - but as Tiger travels deeper into the lush inner-band, she learns that a far more dangerous biological resource is being cultivated on her dying world for a war that defies human comprehension. The race to save her brother’s life takes on a new dimension as she uncovers the truth about her family, the sly old man she travels with and the uncanny beings she meets on her journey. Tiger must question the invisible threads that bind her to her world, her brother, and her hidden past - but she will also discover that she is tied to a frightening and perhaps inevitable future and that she may not control her destiny. She will come to know The Tethering. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Grace Nichols. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/112076/bk_acx0_112076_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
