DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Preserving the Japanese Way offers an easy to understand road map for preserving fruits, vegetables, and fish through a non-scientific, farm- or fisherman-centric approach. Backdrop to the 80 recipes outlined in this book, are the producers and the artisanal products used to make these salted and fermented foods. The arresting photos of the barrel maker, fish sauce producer, artisanal vinegar company, 200 hundred-year-old sake producer, and traditional morning pickle markets with wrinkled grandmas still selling their wares document an authentic view of the inner circle of Japanese life. Recipe methods range from the ultra-traditional: Umeboshi (Salt-Dried Sour Plums, Takuan (Rice Bran Fermented Dried Daikon), and Hakusai (Salt-Fermented Cabbage; to the modern: Shoyu Koji Zucchini Coins, Turnips Pickled in Plum Vinegar, and Melon in Sake Lees. Preserving with Salt & Koji also introduces and demystifies one of the most fascinating ingredients to hit the food scene in a decade: koji. Koji is neither new, nor unusual in the landscape of Japan fermentation but it has quickly become a cult favourite for quick pickling or marinades. Preserving the Japanese Way is a book about community, seasonality as the root of preserved food, and ultimately about why community and seasonality are relevant in our lives today.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Preserving the Japanese Way: Traditions of Salting, Fermenting, and Pickling for the Modern Kitchen offers a clear road map for preserving fruits, vegetables, and fish through a nonscientific, farm- or fisherman-centric approach. An essential backdrop to the 125 recipes outlined in this book are the producers and the artisanal products used to make these salted and fermented foods. The more than 350 arresting photos of the barrel maker, fish sauce producer, artisanal vinegar company, 200 hundred-year-old sake producer, and traditional morning pickle markets with local grandmas still selling their wares document an authentic view of the inner circle of Japanese life. Recipe methods range from the ultratraditional— Umeboshi (Salted Sour Plums), Takuan (Half-Dried Daikon Pickled in Rice Bran), and Hakusai (Fermented Napa Cabbage)— to the modern: Zucchini Pickled in Shoyu Koji, Turnips Pickled with Sour Plums, and Small Melons in Sake Lees. Preserving the Japanese Way also introduces and demystifies one of the most fascinating ingredients to hit the food scene in a decade: koji. Koji is neither new nor unusual in the landscape of Japan fermentation, but it has become a cult favorite for quick pickling or marinades. Preserving the Japanese Way is a book about community, seasonality as the root of preserved food, and ultimately about why both are relevant in our lives today. “In Japan, pickling, fermenting, and salting are elevated as a delicious and refined art form, one that Nancy Singleton Hachisu has mastered. This is a gorgeous, thoughtful—dare I say spiritual—guide to the world of Japanese pickling written with clarity and a deep respect for technique and tradition. Nancy understands that salting cherry blossoms and drying squid aren’t just about preserving foods—it's about preserving a way of life.” —Rick Bayless, author of Authentic Mexican and owner of Frontera Grill “In her first gorgeous book, Nancy delved into the soul of Japanese country cooking. In this stunning new volume, we are introduced to the myriad ways of preserving and fermenting that, like the writing and photography, highlight the gentle elegance and beautiful patience of Japanese cookery.” —Edward Lee, author of Smoke & Pickles and owner of 610 Magnolia “Even if you never yearned to make your own miso or pickle your own vegetables, this beautiful book will change your mind. It’s almost impossible to flip through these pages without wanting to join Nancy Singleton Hachisu in the lovely meditation of her cooking. This book is unlike anything else out there, and every serious cook will want to own it.” —Ruth Reichl, author of Tender at the Bone and former editor-in-chief of Gourmet Magazine

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Published originally in 1914, this is the first Asian cookbook published in America. The fascinating new introduction by Asian cooking authority Jacqueline M. Newman reveals the trickery at play from the two sisters of Anglo-Chinese descent who wrote the book. The Chinese recipes are simple Chinese-American ones using ordinary ingredients. Many are for chop suey and chow mein using lots of celery, bean sprouts, and gravy. The Japanese meat and fish recipes are also simple even though several use rabbit, pheasant, venison, pigeon, even whale; the vegetable dishes are more Chinese than Japanese. Desserts straddle both cuisines. This book marks the beginning of the interest in Asian cuisine in America, and it is notable, almost 100 years later, to see the way authenticity had been edited for both the public and the author's purposes.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The economies of the advanced countries have gone global, but not the cultures!

In this book, author Boye Lafayette De Mente, known for his pioneer books on the business and social cultures of China, Japan, Korea and Mexico, presents a series of business-oriented insights that take much of the mystery out of the mindset and behavior of the Chinese, Japanese, Koreans and Mexicans. It is excellent background reading for business people, diplomats, political leaders, academics and students.

Editor: National Academies Press

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

In developing countries, traditional fermentation serves many purposes. It can improve the taste of an otherwise bland food, enhance the digestibility of a food that is difficult to assimilate, preserve food from degradation by noxious organisms, and increase nutritional value through the synthesis of essential amino acids and vitamins. Although "fermented food" has a vaguely distasteful ring, bread, wine, cheese, and yogurt are all familiar fermented foods. Less familiar are gari, ogi, idli, ugba, and other relatively unstudied but important foods in some African and Asian countries. This book reports on current research to improve the safety and nutrition of these foods through an elucidation of the microorganisms and mechanisms involved in their production. Also included are recommendations for needed research.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

A roaring, rollicking, foot-stomping farce. Ketchup Soup is an epic, and at times ribald, comedy about the lovable James Reichardt, a verbose junior copywriter who's just landed his first job at a sleepy advertising agency in New Orleans. Part genius, part naive miscreant, James suffers from illusions of grandeur, not the least of which are the beliefs that business is the key to happiness and that he is Caesar reincarnated. In his first 364 days in the Big Easy he'll join forces with the many colorful characters of the city to bring down the ad agency, swear allegiance to art and lead a revolt against capitalism at the height of Mardis Gras. A tale that is both hilarious and heartfelt, Ketchup Soup is the side-splitting story of one young man's journey through the nonconformists and dank back alleys of New Orleans.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Decks foward It is easy to believe that the surge in popularity and social acceptance of tattooing can be directly traced to the bold magnanimous and charismatic celebrities and sports personalities of our time sporting this particular style of art generally referred to as Polynesian"or simply put "Tribal."And although some consider this surge in popularity somewhat of a new trend, it has been around for thousands of years and is probably one of the oldest forms of art there is. The art itself was defined not only by the very simple tools that were used to accomplish the act of tattooing but by the need for simplistic, bold graphic type representations that would withstand the ever changing and deteriorating epidermis. Symbols of nature and family life gives legitimate claim that tattooing was very much a way of transfering knoledge through the ages as well as ones claim to thier own personal independence, individuallity, social hierarchy and coming of age. This book is a collection of polynesian art from internationally published award winning New York Tattoo artist Cort Bengtson which can be broken into two categories. The first half of this book contains 20 different longboards and pintail skateboard decks that were hand painted with one shot enamel and cleared with a two part epoxy clear for durability and finish quality. Although tribal is usually considered of black rendering these decks explore this age old art in mostly other than black but does so consistent with the positive/negative definition normally associated with tribal polynesian art. The second is all about art on paper including marker renderings, watercolor projects and some a combination of both. Ranging in sizes up to 40"-50," they include a diverse use of patterns and shapes sure to let anyone read into it and see a story of thier own making. Some are marker right to paper, some took hours just to layout. Some of the water color explore the slightly more sublte side. Some were drawn on the spot some pieces were started one day and finished later.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Montague (1867-1928) was an English journalist, known also as a novelist and writer of essays. He was born and brought up in London, the son of a Roman Catholic priest who had left his vocation to marry, and was educated at the City of London School and Balliol College, Oxford. In 1890 he joined the Manchester Guardian where he became a leader writer and critic. Opposed to the First World War prior to its commencement, he gave it his support once it had begun in the hope of a swift resolution. Aged 47 in 1914, well over the age for enlistment, he dyed his white hair black to fool the Army into accepting him. He began as a grenadier-sergeant, rising to lieutenant and then captain of intelligence in 1915. Later in the war he became an armed escort for VIPs visiting the battlefield, including H G Wells and Bernard Shaw. After the end of the war he wrote in a strong anti-war vein and Disenchantment (1922), a collection of newspaper articles about the war, was one of the first prose works to strongly criticise the way the war was fought, and is regarded by many as a pivotal text in the development of literature about the First World War.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Daughter recounts father's life as Chinese legend in historical novel. Fulfilling her father's last wish, Janita Lo shares his real life stories in "Rising Son: Reflections of a Chinese Gentleman Warrior." HOUSTON - Based on the true first-hand accounts of Khan Ling and his wife, Che Yu, Janita Lo has lovingly combined her parent's stories into a cohesive work of historical fiction, "Rising Son: Reflections of a Chinese Gentleman Warrior" (ISBN: 0615426042). "I am Khan Ling, son of Khan Bei, a descendant of Genghis Khan; the only heir of my grandfather, Khan Gong Shun, Royal Army Commander of the Ch'ing Dynasty and of my grandmother, Princess May Szee, granddaughter of the Emperor Xianfeng...These are merely the particulars of my lineage. It is not so much the people, but rather the circumstances and my own choices that have made me who I am today." Thus begins the story of Khan Ling. In "Rising Son: Reflections of a Chinese Gentleman Warrior," Lo tells the story of her father, Khan Ling, in his own voice, bringing life to the stories he told her as a child. Ranging through the turmoil of late 1800's Ch'ing (Qing) Dynasty in China to the early 19th century, the story of Khan Ling is a tale of bravery, excitement and intrigue, but also a tale of loss and loneliness. Lo, speaking in the voice of her father, aims to express the longings of a young boy growing to adulthood in the tumultuous era before and including World War II. Khan was born in a Buddhist temple to a Chinese father and a Japanese mother. After the death of his father, Khan was reared at the temple by the monks who lived and studied there. Though surrounded by caring teachers, he missed the comfort and care of his mother and father. Later on he would lose his mother to tragedy. These events would color his life and exploits throughout a long life. Khan Ling served in the Chinese intelligence department under Chiang Kai-shek in the conflict with Japan. During this time, China was debating the role of Western influences as the country shifted from dynastic rule into an industrialized society. Throughout these events, Ling struggled with the internal conflict of his half-Chinese and half-Japanese lineage, though he did eventually place his loyalty firmly with China. He fought against the Japanese underground and was able to help release many Chinese families held captive by the Japanese in Hong Kong from 1943-1945. "This is more than a story about a man of heroic achievement," says Lo. "It's a study of the human soul, about young love, romance, chivalry, loss, longing and the desire for the nurturing of a family." This story provides a rich, textured look at the human experience as well as the exciting, enigmatic life of a local legend from royal lineage whose name was omitted from Chinese history books due to the misconceptions that surrounded him. Honestly and with historical accuracy, Lo takes her readers to Khan's China, where danger and opportunity walked hand in hand; where a young Chinese gentleman fulfilled his destiny. Lo lets readers experience the mysterious Chinese culture: patriotism, heroism, bravery, compassion, love, romance and the power of the human spirit under extraordinary circumstances in "Rising Son: Reflections of a Chinese Gentleman Warrior." The historical information in this manuscript is authentic. The main characters heroic and humanitarian accomplishments are painstakingly recounted through the tales told by her late father, Khan Ling. "Rising Son," would appeal to readers who enjoy the real-live drama of historical accounts and personal memoirs. Educational and enlightening in so many respects, "Rising Son" is a timely addition to the literary world and contemporary reader's bookshelf especially considering the growing importance of China in our everyday lives.
