The first cookbook from homesteaders and co-stars of Discovery’s Alaska: The Last Frontier Eve and Eivin Kilcher features appealing recipes for anyone looking to live more sustainably, healthfully, and independently, regardless of where and what they call home. Eve and Eivin Kilcher, stars of the hit Discovery show Alaska: The Last Frontier, are experts in sustainable living. Homesteaders by choice, the couple has had to use their self-reliance skills to survive harsh winters in the Alaskan wilderness and raise a thriving family. In their debut book, the Kilchers share 85 original family recipes and advice on gardening, preserving, and foraging. The tips and techniques they have cultivated from their family and through necessity will help anyone looking to shrink their environmental footprint and become less dependent on mass-produced food and products. Stunningly photographed in and around their handmade home and farm, Homestead Kitchen illustrates that taking on small-scale sustainable projects is not only possible in a suburban/urban setting, but ultimately a more responsible and gratifying way to live. From the Hardcover edition.

In Arab Cooking on a Saskatchewan Homestead, over 200 recipes and the author's recollections from childhood combine to tell the story of a little-known group of early immigrants to the Saskatchewan prairies--the Syrians (most of them later known as Lebanese). There was a significant Syrian community in Saskatchewan during the Depression, and as Mr. Salloum points out, their traditional foods and crops were well-suited to the dryland farming that the drought of the 1930s demanded. Thus they thrived during this difficult period on the prairies. Their traditional foods--such as yogurt, chickpeas, and burghul--were, at the time, virtually unknown to their fellow homesteaders; today, however, these same foods are an important part of an increasingly varied and globally influenced North American cuisine.

There is much history in the Bull City, and some of it can be found within these pages. Journalist and local historian Jim Wise relates how Bull Durham smoking tobacco put Durham, North Carolina, on the map; how a plastic cow and an oversized flag cut the city council down to size; how it felt to travel back in time at the Duke Homestead; and how sportsman Al Mann and "Mom" Ruby Planck left indelible marks on their hometown. Durham's stories are its own, but in them readers may find people, places and truths that resonate with hometowns everywhere.

A caterer's nightmare... Caterer Goldy Schulz is convinced things couldn't get worse. An unscrupulous rival is driving her out of business. An incompetent contractor has left her precious kitchen in shambles. And she has just agreed to cater a fashion shoot at a nineteenth-century mountain cabin with her mentor and old friend, French chef André Hibbard. A dash of cold-blooded murder... Together Goldy and André struggle in a hopelessly outdated kitchen to cater to a vacuous crowd of beautiful people whose personal dramas climax when a camera is pitched through a window...into the buffet. Then Goldy's contractor is found hanging in the house of one of her best friends. A second murder follows and Goldy must somehow solve a mystery and prepare for a society soirée that could make--or break--her career. A recipe for disaster... It's a mystery that involves the dead contractor's unwholesome past, a food saboteur, the theft of four historical cookbooks, and an overzealous D.A. who has suspended Goldy's detective husband, Tom, from the force. What Goldy discovers is the perfect recipe for murder. And she may be dessert! From the Paperback edition.
