Winner of the 2013 James Beard Foundation Book Award for Reference and Scholarship, and a New York Times bestseller, The Art of Fermentation is the most comprehensive guide to do-it-yourself home fermentation ever published. Sandor Katz presents the concepts and processes behind fermentation in ways that are simple enough to guide a reader through their first experience making sauerkraut or yogurt, and in-depth enough to provide greater understanding and insight for experienced practitioners. While Katz expertly contextualizes fermentation in terms of biological and cultural evolution, health and nutrition, and even economics, this is primarily a compendium of practical information—how the processes work; parameters for safety; techniques for effective preservation; troubleshooting; and more. With two-color illustrations and extended resources, this book provides essential wisdom for cooks, homesteaders, farmers, gleaners, foragers, and food lovers of any kind who want to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for arguably the oldest form of food preservation, and part of the roots of culture itself. Readers will find detailed information on fermenting vegetables; sugars into alcohol (meads, wines, and ciders); sour tonic beverages; milk; grains and starchy tubers; beers (and other grain-based alcoholic beverages); beans; seeds; nuts; fish; meat; and eggs, as well as growing mold cultures, using fermentation in agriculture, art, and energy production, and considerations for commercial enterprises. Sandor Katz has introduced what will undoubtedly remain a classic in food literature, and is the first—and only—of its kind.

Bejubelt und verdammt: Das Buch, für das Salman Rushdie zum Tode verurteilt wurde Über der englischen Küste wird ein Flugzeug in die Luft gesprengt. Die einzigen Überlebenden dieses Terroranschlags sind Gibril Farishta und Saladin Chamcha, zwei indische Schauspieler, die buchstäblich vom Himmel fallen und wie durch ein Wunder unversehrt bleiben. Doch nach dem Absturz gehen seltsame Dinge mit ihnen vor: Der Muslim Gibril zeigt immer mehr Ähnlichkeit mit dem Erzengel Gabriel, während sich Saladin, der stets seine Herkunft verleugnete, zu einem Abbild des Teufels entwickelt. Doch das ist erst der Beginn einer überwältigenden Odysee zwischen Gut und Böse, zwischen Fantasie und Realität.

Whether you're 9 or 99, everyone has scary dreams. Most of us think of nightmares as an inevitable but unfortunate part of our sleeping life. What we're overlooking is the opportunity they offer to learn more about ourselves and to find creative solutions to problems affecting our waking hours. "The Nightmare Solution" offers simple and creative ways to not only cope with our frightening dreams but to gain insight from them. By using techniques for capturing and communicating with the images in your dreams, you, your child, or any child you are advising can discover what our powerful dreams are really trying to tell us. Developed over many years by an art and dream therapist, these techniques have been successfully tested and refined on hundreds of students and clients. Much of "The Nightmare Solution" is devoted to showing parents, therapists, and teachers how to work effectively with children struggling with nightmares. The simplicity and nonverbal core of the approach makes it especially effective for kids. All you need is paper, colored pens, and a willingness to listen and follow a child's thinking. Children learn to use their nightmares as alarm signals that can be put to creative use. They learn to understand their feelings, sharpen their problem-solving skills, and confront and negotiate with "the enemy." This process empowers children of all ages, opening us to the gift of dreams.
