Now a New York Times Bestseller Paris was practically perfect... Craig Carlson was the last person anyone would expect to open an American diner in Paris. He came from humble beginnings in a working-class town in Connecticut, had never worked in a restaurant, and didn't know anything about starting a brand-new business. But from his first visit to Paris, Craig knew he had found the city of his dreams, although one thing was still missing-the good ol' American breakfast he loved so much. Pancakes in Paris is the story of Craig tackling the impossible-from raising the money to fund his dream to tracking down international suppliers for "exotic" American ingredients... and even finding love along the way. His diner, Breakfast In America, is now a renowned tourist destination, and the story of how it came to be is just as delicious and satisfying as the classic breakfast that tops its menu.

«Ich fuhr Richtung Süden. Von nun änderte sich alles. Luft und Klima wurden warm, die Hotelzimmer billig, und vor allem: Ich traf Menschen. Sie alle waren zwischen 18 und 30. Sie trugen einen Rucksack. Sie reisten mit einem Buch. Sie gaben wenig Geld aus und trugen T-Shirts, die schon sehr lange keine Waschmaschine mehr gesehen hatten. Diese Menschen wollten alle das Gleiche: Pyramiden fotografieren, Vulkane besteigen, Bier trinken und am Strand herumliegen, Sex haben und weiterfahren. Ich war auf dem ‹Banana Pancake Trail› angekommen. Das folgende Jahr über verließ ich den Pfad nicht mehr. Nun lernte ich jeden Tag junge Engländer, Schweizer, Schweden und Israelis kennen: in billigen, aber sehr gemütlichen und auf unsere Bedürfnisse zugeschnittenen Hotels, in klapprigen Reisebussen, auf den Stufen alte Tempel und am Strand. Wir staunten, feierten, liebten uns. Wir tauschten E-Mail-Adressen aus und vergaßen uns dann genauso schnell wieder, wie wir uns kennengelernt hatten. Wir schwammen zusammen im Mekong, schliefen in mexikanischen Hängematten und besuchten Haschischbauern in den Bergen Marokkos. Diese Leute waren überall, es gab kein Entkommen, ich war nie wieder allein.» Manche Menschen wandern auf dem Jakobsweg, um zu sich zu finden. Der moderne Traveller entscheidet sich jedoch für den Banana Pancake Trail – einen Wanderweg durch Südostasien, der nach den süßen Pfannkuchen benannt wurde, die die kleinen Herbergen entlang des Weges anbieten. Tausende von jungen Backpackern rennen auf dieser «Komfortstrecke» dem Mythos der Individualität hinterher. Philipp Mattheis war einer von ihnen. Er traf Menschen aus aller Welt, Hängengebliebene, Wohlstandskinder und echte Aussteiger – und erzählt mit Humor und einem Hauch Sarkasmus von seinen Begegnungen.

A sweet tooth is a powerful thing. Babies everywhere seem to smile when tasting sweetness for the first time, a trait inherited, perhaps, from our ancestors who foraged for sweet foods that were generally safer to eat than their bitter counterparts. But the "science of sweet" is only the beginning of a fascinating story, because it is not basic human need or simple biological impulse that prompts us to decorate elaborate wedding cakes, scoop ice cream into a cone, or drop sugar cubes into coffee. These are matters of culture and aesthetics, of history and society, and we might ask many other questions. Why do sweets feature so prominently in children's literature? When was sugar called a spice? And how did chocolate evolve from an ancient drink to a modern candy bar? The Oxford Companion to Sugar and Sweets explores these questions and more through the collective knowledge of 265 expert contributors, from food historians to chemists, restaurateurs to cookbook writers, neuroscientists to pastry chefs. The Companion takes readers around the globe and throughout time, affording glimpses deep into the brain as well as stratospheric flights into the world of sugar-crafted fantasies. More than just a compendium of pastries, candies, ices, preserves, and confections, this reference work reveals how the human proclivity for sweet has brought richness to our language, our art, and, of course, our gastronomy. In nearly 600 entries, beginning with "? la mode" and ending with the Italian trifle known as "zuppa inglese," the Companion traces sugar's journey from a rare luxury to a ubiquitous commodity. In between, readers will learn about numerous sweeteners (as well-known as agave nectar and as obscure as castoreum, or beaver extract), the evolution of the dessert course, the production of chocolate, and the neurological, psychological, and cultural responses to sweetness. The Companion also delves into the darker side of sugar, from its ties to colonialism and slavery to its addictive qualities. Celebrating sugar while acknowledging its complex history, The Oxford Companion to Sugar and Sweets is the definitive guide to one of humankind's greatest sources of pleasure. Like kids in a candy shop, fans of sugar (and aren't we all?) will enjoy perusing the wondrous variety to be found in this volume.

"Some bookstores are filled with stories both inside and outside the bindings. These are places of sanctuary, even redemption---and Jeremy Mercer has found both amid the stacks of Shakespeare & Co." ---Paul Collins, author of Sixpence House: Lost in a Town of Books In a small square on the left bank of the Seine, the door to a green-fronted bookshop beckoned. . . . With gangsters on his tail and his meager savings in hand, crime reporter Jeremy Mercer fled Canada in 1999 and ended up in Paris. Broke and almost homeless, he found himself invited to a tea party amongst the riffraff of the timeless Left Bank fantasy known as Shakespeare & Co. In its present incarnation, Shakespeare & Co. has become a destination for writers and readers the world over, trying to reclaim the lost world of literary Paris in the 1920s. Having been inspired by Sylvia Beach's original store, the present owner, George Whitman, invites writers who are down and out in Paris to live and dream amid the bookshelves in return for work. Jeremy Mercer tumbled into this literary rabbit hole and found a life of camaraderie with the other eccentric residents, and became, for a time, George Whitman's confidante and right-hand man. Time Was Soft There is one of the great stories of bohemian Paris and recalls the work of many writers who were bewitched by the City of Light in their youth. Jeremy's comrades include Simon, the eccentric British poet who refuses to give up his bed in the antiquarian book room, beautiful blonde Pia, who contributes the elegant spirit of Parisian couture to the store, the handsome American Kurt, who flirts with beautiful women looking for copies of Tropic of Cancer, and George himself, the man who holds the key to it all. As Time Was Soft There winds in and around the streets of Paris, the staff fall in and out of love, straighten bookshelves, host tea parties, drink in the more down-at-the-heels cafés, sell a few books, and help George find a way to keep his endangered bookstore open. Spend a few days with Jeremy Mercer at 37 Rue de la Bucherie, and discover the bohemian world of Paris that still bustles in the shadow of Notre Dame. "Jeremy Mercer has captured Shakespeare & Co. and its complicated owner, George Whitman, with remarkable insight. Time Was Soft There is a charming memoir about living in Whitman's Shakespeare & Co. and the strange, broken, lost, and occasionally talented, eccentrics and residents of this Tumblewood Hotel." ---Noel Riley Fitch, author of Sylvia Beach and the Lost Generation: A History of Literary Paris in the Twenties & Thirties "There does seem to be something about the odd ducks that work at bookstores. Jeremy Mercer has captured the story of a wonderful, unique store that could only be born out of a love for books and the written word." --- Liz Schlegel, the Book Revue bookshop, Huntington, New York

A Paris Christmasis the charming tale of how a man who was raised on white bread - and didn't speak a word of French - unexpectedly ended up with the sacred duty of preparing the Christmas dinner for a venerable Parisian family. Having fallen in love with a French woman and impulsively moved to Paris to marry her, LA-based film critic John Baxter could hardly refuse the challenge of cooking up a feast for his sceptical in-laws. But what to cook? And how to make it palatable to such a terrifying band of gastronomes? We follow Baxter's misadventures and delicious triumphs as he visits the farthest corners of France in search of the country's best recipes and ingredients. Irresistible and fascinating, this book is a cultural and culinary education which teaches us the difference between food that is just edible and something that feeds the soul.

Jayne Marks is questioning the choices she has made in the years since college and is struggling to pay her bills in Manhattan when she is given the opportunity to move to Paris with her wealthy lover and benefactor, Laurent Moller, who owns and operates two art galleries, one in New York, the other in Paris. He offers her the time and financial support she needs to begin her career as a painter and also challenges her to see who and what she will become if she meets her artistic potential. Laurent, however, seems to have other women in his life and Jayne, too, has an ex-boyfriend, much closer to her own age, whom she still has feelings for. Bringing Paris gloriously to life, Paris, He Said is a novel about desire, beauty, and its appreciation, and of finding yourself presented with the things you believe you've always wanted, only to wonder where true happiness lies.

Sneezing madly from hay fever, Lee recovers her roots in rural Maine by running after a headless chicken, learning how to sight in a rifle, shooting skeet, and butchering animals.

The international bestseller, translated from the German by Simon Pare. On a beautifully restored barge on the Seine, Jean Perdu runs a bookshop; or rather a 'literary apothecary', for this bookseller possesses a rare gift for sensing which books will soothe the troubled souls of his customers. The only person he is unable to cure, it seems, is himself. He has nursed a broken heart ever since the night, twenty-one years ago, when the love of his life fled Paris, leaving behind a handwritten letter that he has never dared read. His memories and his love have been gathering dust - until now. The arrival of an enigmatic new neighbour in his eccentric apartment building on Rue Montagnard inspires Jean to unlock his heart, unmoor the floating bookshop and set off for Provence, in search of the past and his beloved.

Contemporary research and museum websites worldwide have shed new light on Vincent van Gogh's formative years in Paris. Nicholas Vazzana has blended history and fiction to show the profound transformation of one of the world's great artists during his two-year stay in Paris' Montmartre quarter. The thirty-three-year-old Dutchman's painting style, formerly rooted in the gray, cold north, evolves into an unrestrained, colorful brilliance under Parisian influences. In addition to changing his painting style, Van Gogh grows as a social being, mingling with prominent artists and lively bohemians in the city's cafés and bistros, where he exchanges dialogue with such notables as Henri Toulouse Lautrec and Emile Zola. But his turbulent love affair with Agostina Segatori, the owner of Cafe du Tambourin, changes Van Gogh's view of love and leads to a violent, dangerous confrontation. Van Gogh in Paris intimately reveals Van Gogh's "lost years," when he was [or is] seduced by sensual decadence, unbridled sexual freedom, and absinthe, known as the green fairy. As a professional artist, Vazzana incorporates his knowledge of the masters into his novel, adding texture and passion to Van Gogh's fascinating life.
