FOREWORD BY LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA AND LUIS A. MIRANDA, JR. The true story of how a group of chefs fed hundreds of thousands of hungry Americans after Hurricane Maria and touched the hearts of many more Chef José Andrés arrived in Puerto Rico four days after Hurricane Maria ripped through the island. The economy was destroyed and for most people there was no clean water, no food, no power, no gas, and no way to communicate with the outside world. Andrés addressed the humanitarian crisis the only way he knew how: by feeding people, one hot meal at a time. From serving sancocho with his friend José Enrique at Enrique’s ravaged restaurant in San Juan to eventually cooking 100,000 meals a day at more than a dozen kitchens across the island, Andrés and his team fed hundreds of thousands of people, including with massive paellas made to serve thousands of people alone.. At the same time, they also confronted a crisis with deep roots, as well as the broken and wasteful system that helps keep some of the biggest charities and NGOs in business. Based on Andrés’s insider’s take as well as on meetings, messages, and conversations he had while in Puerto Rico, We Fed an Island movingly describes how a network of community kitchens activated real change and tells an extraordinary story of hope in the face of disasters both natural and man-made, offering suggestions for how to address a crisis like this in the future. Beyond that, a portion of the proceeds from the book will be donated to the Chef Relief Network of World Central Kitchen for efforts in Puerto Rico and beyond.

From the endlessly inventive imaginations of star Spanish-American chef José Andrés and James Beard award-winning writer Matt Goulding, Vegetables Unleashed is a new cookbook that will transform how we think about—and eat—the vast universe of vegetables. Andrés is famous for his unstoppable energy—and for his belief that vegetables are far sexier than meat can ever be. Showing us how to creatively transpose the flavors of a global pantry onto the produce aisle, Vegetables Unleashed showcases Andrés’s wide-ranging vision and borderless cooking style. With recipes highlighting everything from the simple wonders of a humble lentil stew to the endless variations on the classic Spanish gazpacho to the curious genius of potatoes baked in fresh compost, Vegetables Unleashed gives us the recipes, tricks, and tips behind the dishes that have made Andrés one of America’s most important chefs and that promise to completely change our relationship with the diverse citizens of the vegetable kingdom. Filled with a guerilla spirit and brought to life by Andrés’s globe-trotting culinary adventures, Vegetables Unleashed will show the home cook how to approach cooking vegetables in an entirely fresh and surprising way – and that the world can be changed through the power of plants.

Ron Añejo loves his carefree lifestyle in the Caribbean, cruising from one dodgy job to the next in his barely-seaworthy boat. It takes chutzpah and more than a little optimism — when your strongest skill is managing to get by, legal work can be hard to come by, even if you actually had a work permit. And who can bother? ~~~~~ Excerpt ~~~~~ The day Ron Añejo bought his boat, the day he took possession of it, actually, got hot early. He'd lived in the West Indies a long time, so he was used to the tropical sun; his skin was leathery from it. Most days near the equator were hot and so he no longer paid much attention to hot days. You couldn't. But on that day, the air sat still over the small island of Kayakoo, the trade winds left it alone for a time. As soon as the sun came up, it started making an invisible and stiflingly hot blanket that lay across both the island and the boats that lay at anchor in Toenail Bay. Although we didn't know it yet, as it burned down through the clear morning sky, the sun had begun to heat the decks of Ron's boat, raising the temperature of the air inside until the garbage that was piled up in the engine room started to cook. "There's no rush," Ron told me the day before. He was talking about going to check out the boat, you see. I had promised to help take a look-see, as Ron doesn't know much about mechanics and electrical things. He does know hulls, though. "Come by when you get up and Doris will fix us a good breakfast. We'll need it, because we have a full day of work ahead of us." The idea of a free breakfast that I didn't even have to cook sounded great to me, and Doris is a good cook, so it was sometime around eight when I made my way to Ron's for a leisurely breakfast. "We need to go see Gritty," he told me over a second cup of coffee. This was bad news. I had been enjoying the job Ron had gotten me with the boatyard. It amazed me that I'd been working there for nearly a year now. Even so, Gritty still intimidated me. I liked her well enough, but she was a tough boss — you have to be to make any kind of business work in the islands, I suppose — and I didn't like the idea of springing this kind of thing on her. "I thought you said you'd arranged things with her." "Not yet. As slow as things are, it shouldn't be any problem, though. We can run over there now." Normally we would've been at the boatyard by seven-thirty, so I felt a bit like a school kid who had overslept when we walked along the rocky beach around the bay to the small boatyard that sat on the south side of Toenail Bay, about a quarter of a mile from Ron's place. Ron's plan, if you could call it that, was to ask for a couple of days off for both of us. "I want to check out my new boat," he told the yard manager when we caught up with her down by the water's edge. Gritty is a tall woman, real thin, and Swedish. In short, she isn't your normal island boatyard person. She stood looking at the railway instead of at Ron (I considered this a bad omen), chain-smoking her cigarettes. The railway is just a short bit of track that leads from the boatyard into the water. A cradle runs on it, driven by a cable. When it is working, they use it to haul out the fishing boats, big charter boats from St. Voracious, and a few yachts brave enough to haul out here for island-quality work. At the moment the railway was, as they say on the island, "bust!" The cable had broken and been mended far too many times and Gritty was impatiently waiting for a brand new, second-hand cable to arrive from Trinidad, or some such place.

When Anthony Bourdain died in June 2018, fans around the globe came together to celebrate the life of an inimitable man who had dedicated his life to traveling nearly everywhere (and eating nearly everything), shedding light on the lives and stories of others. His impact was outsized and his legacy has only grown since his death. Now, for the first time, we have been granted a look into Bourdain's life through the stories and recollections of his closest friends and colleagues. Laurie Woolever, Bourdain's longtime assistant and confidante, interviewed nearly a hundred of the people who shared Tony's orbit-from members of his kitchen crews to his writing, publishing, and television partners, to his daughter and his closest friends - in order to piece together a remarkably full, vivid, and nuanced vision of Tony's life and work. From his childhood and teenage days, to his early years in New York, through the genesis of his game-changing memoir Kitchen Confidential to his emergence as a writing and television personality, and in the words of friends and colleagues including Eric Ripert, José Andrés, Nigella Lawson, and W. Kamau Bell, as well as family members including his brother and his late mother, we see the many sides of Tony - his motivations, his ambivalence, his vulnerability, his blind spots, and his brilliance. Unparalleled in scope and deeply intimate in its execution, with a treasure trove of photos from Tony's life, Bourdain: In Stories is a definitive testament to the life of a remarkable man in the words of the people who shared his world.

Welcome to Palm Island, a paradise outside space and time, where even death does not preempt redemption. Lissa, a college student from Southern California, finds herself on the island after a tragic accident. There she meets Josiane, a Creole slave girl; Naja, a young Spanish Jew left pregnant after her rape by Catholic Panochos; Berber brothers Alcassin and Tariq; and the immortal Thera, who traces her origins to the lost city of Atlantis. The threads of their lives weave together across the boundaries of culture, language, and time. On Palm Island, together, each of these lonely travelers may finally find peace. In Jana A. Brill’s historical fantasy, real and imagined characters whose lives were cut tragically short find themselves in a place that offers a second chance as they grapple with their own human frailty. Driven to write after the sudden death of her eighteen-year-old niece, Brill finds a place for her to live a little longer—on the Island. “I invented this island as a parallel universe,” Brill writes, “a place of hope and forgiveness and a glimpse of what might have been.” Writing over the past fifteen years, the author has discovered new characters from other historical periods who benefit from an opportunity to re-write the story of their lives in the parallel world of Palm Island.

Because the elderly chief wanted his visitor to understand the Ojibwe world, and because Hallowell was deeply interested in his subject matter and was such a good listener, Berens freely related his dreams and other stories about encounters with powerful beings. The fact that he also shared traditional myths in summer, when Ojibwe people thought it dangerous to discuss such things, shows the depth of his relationship with Hallowell. Berens' reminiscences and story and myth texts are unparalleled as sources for the life, experiences, and outlook of this important Ojibwe leader, and for the insights they provide into the history and culture of his people. Rooted in the collaboration between Berens as steward of his oral traditions and Hallowell as creator and guardian of their written versions, Memories, Myths, and Dreams of an Ojibwe Leader draws the reader into the world - and world view - of Chief Berens, showing how an Aboriginal Christian of the early twentieth century could simultaneously take part in "modern" and "traditional" Ojibwe life.
