The story of Laduree started in 1862 when Louis Ernest Laduree opened a bakery in the heart of Paris at 16, rue Royale. In 1997 Laduree opened a tea-room/restaurant on the prestigious Champs-Elysees, followed by other Parisian addresses and international tea-rooms in London, Dublin, Geneva, Monaco, Tokyo, Milan and soon New York. In this book Philippe Andrieu, the Pastry Chef at Laduree, reveals 100 of the most famous Laduree recipes, adapted for the general public. From the Strawberry Cake with Rose Choux Pastry to Pistachio Financiers and the world-famous macaroons in all their variety, this icon of French "art de vivre" is brought to life in a pallet of pastries the colour of powder pink, light green, bright purple, and lemon yellow.

Drinking alcohol: a beloved tradition, a dangerous addiction, even "a sickness of the soul" (as once described by a group of young Muslim men in Bali). In his wide-ranging travels, Lawrence Osborne-a veritable connoisseur himself-has witnessed opposing views of alcohol across cultures worldwide, compelling him to wonder: is drinking alcohol a sign of civilization and sanity, or the very reverse? Where do societies and their treatment of alcohol fall on the spectrum between indulgence and restraint? These questions launch the author on an audacious journey, from the Middle East, where drinking is prohibited, to the West, where it is an important-yet perhaps very often a ruinous-part of everyday life. Beginning in the bar of a luxury hotel in Milan, Osborne then ventures to the Hezbollah-threatened vineyards of Lebanon; a landmark pub in London; the dangerous drinking dens on the Malaysian border; the only brewery in the alcohol-hostile country of Pakistan; and Oman, where he faces the absurd challenge of finding a bottle of champagne on New Year's Eve. Amid his travels, Osborne unravels the stories of alcoholism in his own family, and reflects on ramifications of alcohol consumption in his own life. An immersing, controversial, and often irreverent travel narrative, The Wet and the Dry offers provocative, sometimes unsettling insights into the deeply embedded conflicts between East and West, and the surprising influence of drinking on the contemporary world today.Format: HardcoverPages: 240
