Making Sense of Wine Audiobook

Making Sense of Wine

Author: Matt Kramer Narrator: Frederick Davidson Release Date: April 2009

Since its first publication in 1989, Matt Kramer's extraordinarily accessible guide to wine has become a classic. Where others talk jargon about centrifuges, steel tanks, and acidity levels, Kramer talks about wine itself. The result is an enriching experience that goes far beyond knowing how to read a label or impress a waiter. The text explains everything an oenophile needs to know, including the creation and naming of wines, wine cellars, presentation and glassware, pairing wine with food, and much more. Kramer reminds us that wine is an expression of the earth that reveals the site and conditions under which it is cultivated. He explores connoisseurship through the practical devices of "thinking wine" and "drinking wine," making for a most enjoyable and engrossing journey through one of life's most dependable pleasures.

The Face on Your Plate Audiobook

The Face on Your Plate

Author: Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson Narrator: Fred Stella Release Date: March 2009

Somewhere in between Fast Food Nation and The Omnivore's Dilemma, between eating at McDonald's and killing a pig for dinner, there is a need for an audiobook that will probe more deeply and provide greater understanding and insight into the psychological factors that influence decisions about what we eat and why - and how these choices affect our lives, animals' lives, and the environment. In this revelatory work, Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, the best-selling author of When Elephants Weep, does just that, showing how food affects our moral selves, our health, and the environment. The Face on Your Plate raises questions that make us conscious of the decisions behind every bite we take: How does the health of animals affect the health of our planet and of our bodies? What effect does eating animals have on our land, on our waters, and even on global warming? What are the results of farming practices - debeaking chickens and separating calves from their mothers - on animals and humans? As a psychoanalyst, Masson uniquely investigates how denial keeps us from recognizing the animal at the end of our fork - think pig, not bacon - and each culture's distinction among animals considered food and those that are forbidden. The Face on Your Plate brings together Masson's intellectual, psychological, and emotional expertise over the last twenty years into the pivotal book of the food revolution. Anyone who wants to be open-eyed about their food choices - vegans, vegetarians, and meat eaters - will welcome this timely work.

Tales From My Table Audiobook

Tales From My Table

Author: Ann Tudor Narrator: Ann Tudor Release Date: May 2008

Tales from My Table is a collection of twelve true stories about food. Bittersweet, funny, and thought-provoking, the stories explore the way food influences our lives and our memories. We learn about relationships, about life, and about the thrill of eating what you love to eat and cooking what you love to cook. Imagine Anne Lamott and Garrison Keillor meeting under a full moon for a midnight picnic. As author Ann Tudor says: "I value food prepared and served with love. And I value the memories that we store in our taste buds. Not all those memories are welcome ones. It would not serve us to recall only the times of sweet plenty and glorious love. We need also to taste bitterness and to feel our salt tears. We taste the salt, we taste the bitter. And then we find the sweet."

The Billionaire's Vinegar Audiobook

The Billionaire's Vinegar

Author: Benjamin Wallace Narrator: Dennis Boutsikaris Release Date: May 2008

It was the most expensive bottle of wine ever sold.In 1985, at a heated auction by Christie's of London, a 1787 bottle of Château Lafite Bordeaux one of a cache of bottles unearthed in a bricked-up Paris cellar and supposedly owned by Thomas Jefferson went for $156,000 to a member of the Forbes family. The discoverer of the bottle was pop-band manager turned wine collector Hardy Rodenstock, who had a knack for finding extremely old and exquisite wines. But rumors about the bottle soon arose. Why wouldn't Rodenstock reveal the exact location where it had been found? Was it part of a smuggled Nazi hoard? Or did his reticence conceal an even darker secret?It would take more than two decades for those questions to be answered and involve a gallery of intriguing players among them Michael Broadbent, the bicycle-riding British auctioneer who speaks of wines as if they are women and staked his reputation on the record-setting sale; Serena Sutcliffe, Broadbent's elegant archrival, whose palate is covered by a hefty insurance policy; and Bill Koch, the extravagant Florida tycoon bent on exposing the truth about Rodenstock. Pursuing the story from Monticello to London to Zurich to Munich and beyond, Benjamin Wallace also offers a mesmerizing history of wine, complete with vivid accounts of subterranean European laboratories where old vintages are dated and of Jefferson's colorful, wine-soaked days in France, where he literally drank up the culture.Suspenseful, witty, and thrillingly strange, The Billionaire's Vinegar is the vintage tale of what could be the most elaborate con since the Hitler diaries. It is also the debut of an exceptionally powerful new voice in narrative non-fiction. From the Hardcover edition.

Secret Ingredients: The New Yorker Book of Food and Drink Audiobook

Secret Ingredients: The New Yorker Book of Food and Drink

Author: David Remnick Narrator: Various, Various Artists Release Date: December 2007

Since its earliest days, The New Yorker has been a tastemaker, literally. As the home of A. J. Liebling, Joseph Wechsberg, and M. F. K. Fisher, who practically invented American food writing, the magazine established a tradition that is carried forward today by irrepressible literary gastronomes including Calvin Trillin, Bill Buford, Adam Gopnik, Jane Kramer, and Anthony Bourdain. Now, in this indispensable collection, The New Yorker dishes up a feast of delicious writing on food and drink, from every age of its fabled eighty-year history. There are memoirs, short stories, tell-alls, and poems, ranging in tone from sweet to sour and in subject from soup to nuts. M. F. K. Fisher pays homage to 'cookery witches,' those mysterious cooks who possess 'an uncanny power over food,' while John McPhee valiantly trails an inveterate forager and is rewarded with stewed persimmons and white-pine-needle tea. There is Roald Dahl's famous story 'Taste,' in which a wine snob's palate comes in for some unwelcome scrutiny, and Julian Barnes's ingenious tale of a lifelong gourmand who goes on a very peculiar diet for still more peculiar reasons. Adam Gopnik asks if French cuisine is done for, and Calvin Trillin investigates whether people can actually taste the difference between red wine and white. We journey with Susan Orlean as she distills the essence of Cuba in the story of a single restaurant, and with Judith Thurman as she investigates the arcane practices of Japan's tofu masters. Closer to home, Joseph Mitchell celebrates the old New York tradition of the beefsteak dinner, and Mark Singer shadows the city's foremost fisherman-chef. Selected from the magazine's plentiful larder, SECRET INGREDIENTS celebrates all forms of gustatory delight. From the Compact Disc edition.

The Sharper Your Knife, the Less You Cry: Love, Laughter, and Tears at the World's Most Famous Cooki

Author: Kathleen Flinn Narrator: Cassandra Campbell Release Date: October 2007

In 2003, Kathleen Flinn, a 36-year-old American living and working in London, returned from vacation to find that her corporate job had been eliminated. Ignoring her mother's advice that she get another job immediately or "never get hired anywhere ever again", Flinn instead cleared out her savings and moved to Paris to pursue a dream: a diploma from the famed Le Cordon Bleu cooking school. The Sharper Your Knife, the Less You Cry is the touching and remarkably funny account of Flinn's transformation as she moves through the school's intense program and falls deeply in love along the way. Flinn interweaves more than two dozen recipes with a unique look inside Le Cordon Bleu amid battles with demanding chefs, competitive classmates, and her "wretchedly inadequate" French. Flinn offers a vibrant portrait of Paris, one in which the sights and sounds of the city's street markets and purveyors come alive in rich detail. The ultimate wish-fulfillment audiobook, her story is a true testament to pursuing a dream. Fans of Julie & Julia, Almost French, and Eat, Pray, Love will be amused, inspired, and richly rewarded by this seductive tale of romance, Paris, and French food.
