1,000 Places to See Before You Die: Revised Second Edition
1,000 Places to See Before You Die: Revised
The world’s bestselling travel book is back in a more informative, more experiential, more budget-friendly full-color edition. A #1 New York Times bestseller, 1,000 Places reinvented the idea of travel book as both wish list and practical guide. As Newsweek wrote, it “tells you what’s beautiful, what’s fun, and what’s just unforgettable— everywhere on earth.” And now the best is better. There are 600 full-color photographs. Over 200 entirely new entries, including visits to 28 countries like Lebanon, Croatia, Estonia, and Nicaragua, that were not in the original edition. There is an emphasis on experiences: an entry covers not just Positano or Ravello, but the full 30-mile stretch along the Amalfi Coast.Every entry from the original edition has been readdressed, rewritten, and made fuller, with more suggestions for places to stay, restaurants to visit, festivals to check out. And throughout, the book is more budget-conscious, starred restaurants and historic hotels such as the Ritz, but also moderately priced gems that don’t compromise on atmosphere or charm.The world is calling. Time to answer.

Life Is Meals: A Food Lover's Book of Days
Life Is Meals: A Food Lover's Book of
From the PEN/Faulkner Award–winning author James Salter and his wife, Kay—amateur chefs and terrific hosts—here is a charming, beautifully illustrated food lover’s companion that, with an entry for each day of the year, takes us from a Twelfth Night cake in January to a champagne dinner on New Year’s Eve. Life Is Meals is rich with culinary wisdom, history, recipes, literary pleasures, and the authors’ own stories of their triumphs—and catastrophes—in the kitchen. For instance:The menu on the Titanic on the fatal night Reflections on dining from Queen Victoria, JFK, Winnie the Pooh, Garrison Keillor, and many others The seductiveness of a velvety Brie or the perfect martini How to decide whom to invite to a dinner party—and whom not to John Irving’s family recipe for meatballs; Balzac’s love of coffeeThe greatest dinner ever given at the White House Where in Paris Samuel Beckett and Harold Pinter had French onion soup at 4:00 a.m. Sophisticated as well as practical, opinionated, and indispensable, Life Is Meals is a tribute to the glory of food and drink, and the joy of sharing them with others. “The meal is the emblem of civilization,” the Salters observe. “What would one know of life as it should be lived, or nights as they should be spent, apart fro...

ORIGINAL PATENT APPLICATION NUMBER 2,773 FOR IMPROVEMENTS RELATING TO COMBINED DINING AND BILLIARD TABLES (LONDON).
ORIGINAL PATENT APPLICATION NUMBER 4,069 FOR IMPROVEMENTS IN THE MANUFACTURE OF BILLIARD, DINING AND OTHER TABLES (LONDON).
The first collection of food writing by Britain's funniest and most feared criticA.A. Gill knows food, and loves food. A meal is never just a meal. It has a past, a history, connotations. It is a metaphor for life. A.A. Gill delights in decoding what lies behind the food on our plates: famously, his reviews are as much ruminations on society at large as they are about the restaurants themselves. So alongside the concepts, customers and cuisines, ten years of writing about restaurants has yielded insights on everything from yaks to cowboys, picnics to politics.TABLE TALK is an idiosyncratic selection of A.A. Gill's writing about food, taken from his Sunday Times and Tatler columns. Sometimes inspired by the traditions of a whole country, sometimes by a single ingredient, it is a celebration of what great eating can be, an excoriation of those who get it wrong, and an education about our own appetites. Because it spans a decade, the book focuses on A.A. Gill's general dining experiences rather than individual restaurants - food fads, tipping, chefs, ingredients, eating in town and country and abroad, and the best and worst dining experiences. Fizzing with wit, it is a treat for gourmands, gourmets and anyone who relishes good writing.

Are You in or Are You Out? Inclusivity and Exclusivity of Table Manners: A light-hearted journey into a rather serious matter (How to Eat: All around Table Manners Book 1)
Are You in or Are You Out? Inclusivity
Table manners are an intrinsic part of everyday life, created and maintained throughout human historical development. This richly illustrated book offers fascinating insights into the nature of table manners and their function in human life, and presents an expert’s view on dining etiquette. This is not a guide to “what is in” and “what is not”, far from it. This is research and a witty analysis, including among other things a classification of table manners and identification of the main driver for sales of etiquette courses. From the survival of humanity to politics and beyond, Tanya Kosh uses tales from her life as a newcomer to the UK and as an international business traveler, to illuminate both the origins and the necessity of various cultures’ table manners. So often we exercise our own cultural table manners out of habit, never considering where they come from and which human needs they satisfy, whilst Kosh puts them under the magnifying glass. Have you ever thought about your table manners being your ID? Whether you think table manners are outdated or a vital part of any home or society, Kosh’s Are You in or Are You Out? will make you think, make you laugh, and may even prompt some changes around your table. This is the first of a planned series of publicati...

Postcards Along the Way (Notes from a Scribbling Traveler)
Postcards Along the Way (Notes from a Scribbling
From a scrumptious barbecued brisket sandwich at a Wyoming rodeo, to a glass of past its prime wine served at a French Riviera café, Postcards Along the Way (Notes From a Scribbling Traveler) is a collection of lighthearted essays featuring curious situations and slice-of-life occurrences I've stumbled upon while traveling throughout the world. Travel isn't solely about scurrying to popular attractions for photo opportunities. Travel can be greatly enhanced when all of one's senses are tuned in to the surrounding environment. Chatting with people, tasting their food, dancing to their music, and making friendly acquaintances, if only for a short time, creates visits chocked-full of outstanding memories. People tend to naturally gravitate toward each other, especially when the traveler wears a smile. Be sure to pack yours. In the end, we're all citizens of the world no matter where we live or what language we speak. Look for the joy in travel. It's not hard to find. And I invite you to give this a read and share the joy of some of my travels.
