15,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

All the kitchen secrets, techniques, recipes, and inspiration you need to craft transcendent cocktails, from essential, canonical classics to imaginative all-new creations from America´s Test Kitchen. Cocktail making is part art and part science--just like cooking. The first-ever cocktail book from America´s Test Kitchen brings our objective, kitchen-tested and -perfected approach to the craft of making cocktails. You always want your cocktail to be something special--whether you´re in the mood for a simple Negroni, a properly muddled Caipirinha, or a big batch of Margaritas or Bloody Marys with friends. After rigorous recipe testing, we´re able to reveal not only the ideal ingredient proportions and best mixing technique for each drink, but also how to make homemade tonic for your Gin and Tonic, and homemade sweet vermouth and cocktail cherries for your Manhattan. And you can´t simply quadruple any Margarita recipe and have it turn out right for your group of guests--to serve a crowd, the proportions must change. You can always elevate that big-batch Margarita, though, with our Citrus Rim Salt or Sriracha Rim Salt. How to Cocktail offers 150 recipes that range from classic cocktails to new America´s Test Kitchen originals. Our two DIY chapters offer streamlined recipes for making superior versions of cocktail cherries, cocktail onions, flavored syrups, rim salts and sugars, bitters, vermouths, liqueurs, and more. And the final chapter includes a dozen of our test cooks´ favorite cocktail-hour snacks. All along the way, we solve practical challenges for the home cook, including how to make an array of cocktails without having to buy lots of expensive bottles, how to use a Boston shaker, what kinds of ice are best and how to make them, and much more.

The Wolves of Midwinter
7,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The tale of The Wolf Gift continues . . . In Anne Rice´s surprising and compelling best-selling novel, the first of her strange and mythic imagining of the world of wolfen powers (´´I devoured these pages . . . As solid and engaging as anything she has written since her early Vampire Chronicles fiction´´-Alan Cheuse, The Boston Globe; ´´A delectable cocktail of old-fashioned lost-race adventure, shape-shifting, and suspense´´-Elizabeth Hand, The Washington Post), readers were spellbound as Rice conjured up a daring new world set against the wild and beckoning California coast. Now in her new novel, as lush and romantic in detail and atmosphere as it is sleek and steely in storytelling, Anne Rice takes us once again to the rugged coastline of Northern California, to the grand mansion at Nideck Point, and further explores the unearthly education of her transformed Man Wolf. The novel opens on a cold, gray landscape. It is the beginning of December. Oak fires are burning in the stately flickering hearths of Nideck Point. It is Yuletide. For Reuben Golding, now infused with the Wolf Gift and under the loving tutelage of the Morphenkinder, this promises to be a Christmas like no other . . . The Yuletide season, sacred to much of the human race, has been equally sacred to the Man Wolves, and Reuben soon becomes aware that they, too, steeped in their own profound rituals, will celebrate the ancient Midwinter festival deep within the verdant richness of Nideck forest. From out of the shadows of Nideck comes a ghost-tormented, imploring, unable to speak yet able to embrace and desire with desperate affection . . . As Reuben finds himself caught up with-and drawn to-the passions and yearnings of this spectral presence, and as the swirl of preparations reaches a fever pitch for the Nideck town Christmas festival of music and pageantry, astonishing secrets are revealed; secrets that tell of a strange netherworld, of spirits other than the Morphenkinder, centuries old, who inhabit the dense stretches of redwood and oak that surround the magnificent house at Nideck Point, ´´ageless ones´´ who possess their own fantastical ancient histories and who taunt with their dark magical powers . . .

The Innocent Man

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ? John Grisham´s first work of nonfiction: a true crime story that will terrify anyone who believes in the presumption of innocence. NOW A NETFLIX ORIGINAL DOCUMENTARY SERIES ´´Both an American tragedy and [Grisham´s] strongest legal thriller yet, all the more gripping because it happens to be true.´´-Entertainment Weekly In the town of Ada, Oklahoma, Ron Williamson was going to be the next Mickey Mantle. But on his way to the Big Leagues, Ron stumbled, his dreams broken by drinking, drugs, and women. Then, on a winter night in 1982, not far from Ron´s home, a young cocktail waitress named Debra Sue Carter was savagely murdered. The investigation led nowhere. Until, on the flimsiest evidence, it led to Ron Williamson. The washed-up small-town hero was charged, tried, and sentenced to death-in a trial littered with lying witnesses and tainted evidence that would shatter a man´s already broken life, and let a true killer go free. Impeccably researched, grippingly told, filled with eleventh-hour drama, The Innocent Man reads like a page-turning legal thriller. It is a book no American can afford to miss. Praise for The Innocent Man ´´Grisham has crafted a legal thriller every bit as suspenseful and fast-paced as his bestselling fiction.´´-The Boston Globe ´´A gritty, harrowing true-crime story.´´-Time ´´A triumph.´´-The Seattle Times

Weapons of Math Destruction
11,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Longlisted for the National Book Award New York Times Bestseller A former Wall Street quant sounds an alarm on the mathematical models that pervade modern life - and threaten to rip apart our social fabric We live in the age of the algorithm. Increasingly, the decisions that affect our lives-where we go to school, whether we get a car loan, how much we pay for health insurance-are being made not by humans, but by mathematical models. In theory, this should lead to greater fairness: Everyone is judged according to the same rules, and bias is eliminated. But as Cathy O´Neil reveals in this urgent and necessary book, the opposite is true. The models being used today are opaque, unregulated, and uncontestable, even when they´re wrong. Most troubling, they reinforce discrimination: If a poor student can´t get a loan because a lending model deems him too risky (by virtue of his zip code), he´s then cut off from the kind of education that could pull him out of poverty, and a vicious spiral ensues. Models are propping up the lucky and punishing the downtrodden, creating a ´´toxic cocktail for democracy.´´ Welcome to the dark side of Big Data. Tracing the arc of a person´s life, O´Neil exposes the black box models that shape our future, both as individuals and as a society. These ´´weapons of math destruction´´ score teachers and students, sort résumés, grant (or deny) loans, evaluate workers, target voters, set parole, and monitor our health. O´Neil calls on modelers to take more responsibility for their algorithms and on policy makers to regulate their use. But in the end, it´s up to us to become more savvy about the models that govern our lives. This important book empowers us to ask the tough questions, uncover the truth, and demand change. - Longlist for National Book Award (Non-Fiction) - Goodreads, semi-finalist for the 2016 Goodreads Choice Awards (Science and Technology) - Kirkus, Best Books of 2016 - New York Times, 100 Notable Books of 2016 (Non-Fiction) - The Guardian, Best Books of 2016 - WBUR´s ´´On Point,´´ Best Books of 2016: Staff Picks - Boston Globe, Best Books of 2016, Non-Fiction

Moreover, the origami fold means you can do away with that awkward, oversized map, making it a compact and discreet reference tool that doesn´t shout ´tourist alert´! PopOut was founded in 1993. Having spotted a need to cure what he calls ´Map Stress Syndrome´ after watching numerous tourists around the City of Bath, England, battling with oversized maps, founder Derek Dacey recalled the invaluable miniature charts he used during his days as a commercial pilot. Aiming to bring this level of usability to the city map market, a small team of designers was recruited to realise what would soon become the PopOut. 1993 saw the release of the first ever PopOut Map Bath, which was sold in the gift and souvenir trade across the city. Hot on the heels of this initial success, a research trip to the USA culminated in a redesigned layout, combining strong photo images, high quality printing and laminated covers - standards which are still adhered to today. That research trip also saw the birth of the first US destinations covered in the PopOut range - Boston, NYC, Philadelphia and Washington DC. Launched in the new style in the US they enjoyed instant success in the gift and souvenir trade. Today, PopOut produces over 100 titles for major destinations and is loved by travellers the world over.
