A clever distillation of America's favorite libation, by the New York Times best-selling authors of The Essential Scratch & Sniff Guide to Becoming a Wine Expert Whiskey fever is sweeping the nation. Every day, craft distilleries are popping up in remote counties and urban centers, offering a wealth of great choices to consumers--and just as many puzzlements. Does the introduction of a simple "e" to go from whisky to whiskey mean anything? What's the difference between Scotch and Rye? What's Canadian whisky anyway? And what about the whiskeys of Scotland, Japan, and Ireland? Where's a humble Joe to start? In this witty kid-style book on an adult topic, Richard Betts boils down his know-how into twenty pages, cooling our "brown-sweat" anxieties and dividing whiskey into three simple categories: Grain, Wood, and Place. While most whiskey tomes are about as fun as a chemistry lesson, Betts makes the learning slide down easy, reassuring us that this exalted spirit is just distilled beer and, through a nasal romp, helping us figure out which kinds we love best. Humorous illustrations and scratch-and-sniff scents (vanilla, sandalwood, grass, and more) help would-be connoisseurs learn their personal preferences. Language label and Map to Your Desires included.

A complement to farm-to-table dining, his fresh take on cocktails is ushering in a new age of drinking: “farm-to-glass”, and with the addition of his foraging and gardening methods, “ground to glass.” Captured in gorgeous full-color photographs, the libations in Eat Your Drink are both aesthetically beautiful and delicious. Eat Your Drink explores cocktails that push boundaries though never-before-imagined flavor combinations. Following Biancaniello’s lead, you too can learn to blend alcohol and food together to create an elevated cocktail experience that requires you to savor, explore and . . . eat your drink.

A ringing cry to forge a meaningful connection to the land by a leading voice in the sustainable agriculture movement: “A small book rich in ideas” (New York Times). The New World―this empty land dazzlingly rich in forests, soils, rainfall, and mineral wealth―was to represent a new beginning for civilized humanity. Unfortunately, even the best of the European settlers had a stronger eye for conquest than for justice. Natives were in the way―surplus people who must be literally displaced. Now, as ecologist Wes Jackson points out, the descendants of those early beneficiaries of conquest are the ones who are displaced. Forced to vacate the family farmsteads and small towns of our heartland, they leave vacant the schools, churches, hardware stores, and barber shops. In Becoming Native to This Place, Jackson urges modern Americans to base our culture and agriculture on nature’s principles, and to recycle as natural ecosystems have for millions of years. The task is more difficult now, he argues, but not impossible. Where to begin? Jackson suggests we start with those thousands of small towns and rural communities literally falling apart. Here are the places where a new generation of homecomers―people who want to go to a place and dig in―can become the new pioneers, operating on a set of assumptions and aspirations different from those of their ancestor to create a more sustainable economy and culture.
