Academic discussions of ethnic food have tended to focus on the attitudes of consumers, rather than the creators and producers. In this ground-breaking new book, Krishnendu Ray reverses this trend by exploring the culinary world from the perspective of the ethnic restaurateur. Focusing on New York City, he examines the lived experience, work, memories, and aspirations of immigrants working in the food industry. He shows how migrants become established in new places, creating a taste of home and playing a key role in influencing food cultures as a result of transactions between producers, consumers and commentators. Based on extensive interviews with immigrant restaurateurs and students, chefs and alumni at the Culinary Institute of America, ethnographic observation at immigrant eateries and haute institutional kitchens as well as historical sources such as the US census, newspaper coverage of restaurants, reviews, menus, recipes, and guidebooks, Ray reveals changing tastes in a major American city between the late 19th and through the 20th century. Written by one of the most outstanding scholars in the field, The Ethnic Restaurateur is an essential read for students and academics in food studies, culinary arts, sociology, urban studies and indeed anyone interested in popular culture and cooking in the United States.

After many decades, if not centuries, of neglect of fine food and high-level restaurants in Britain, we are seeing a massive explosion of interest in food, cooking, and dining out. Christel Lane's book charts the process of this transformation and examines top contemporary restaurants and their chefs. The Cultivation of Taste presents a comparative study of Michelin-starred restaurants in Britain and Germany, focusing on two countries without an indigenous haute cuisine but which nevertheless have developed internationally reputed fine-dining sectors, and comparing their development to the fine-dining culture in France. Written from a sociological perspective, chefs are portrayed as part of a complex network, in their relationships with their employees, their customers, gastronomic critics, suppliers of food, and even their financiers. It will appeal to academics in the areas of economic and cultural sociology, and those with an interest in small entrepreneurial firms and their work relations, but also to all those who have an interest in fine-dining restaurants and the chef patrons at the centre of them. The book draws on a large number of interviews with renowned chefs, diners, and Michelin inspectors to provide an unprecedented insight into what goes on in Michelin-starred restaurants—what makes their chefs tick, intrigues their critics, and beguiles or annoys their customers. Restaurants are viewed not simply as businesses but as cultural enterprises that shape our taste in food, ambience, and sociality.

In the city where dining is a sport, a gourmand swears off restaurants (even takeout!) for two years, rediscovering the economical, gastronomical joy of home cooking Gourmand-ista Cathy Erway's timely memoir of quitting restaurants cold turkey speaks to a new era of conscientious eating. An underpaid, twenty-something executive assistant in New York City, she was struggling to make ends meet when she decided to embark on a Walden- esque retreat from the high-priced eateries that drained her wallet. Though she was living in the nation's culinary capital, she decided to swear off all restaurant food. The Art of Eating In chronicles the delectable results of her twenty-four-month experiment, with thirty original recipes included. What began as a way to save money left Erway with a new appreciation for the simple pleasure of sharing a meal with friends at home, the subtleties of home-cooked flavors, and whether her ingredients were ethically grown. She also explored the anti-restaurant underground of supper clubs and cook-offs, and immersed herself in an array of alternative eating lifestyles from freeganism and dumpster-diving to picking tasty greens on a wild edible tour in Brooklyn's Prospect Park. Culminating in a binge that leaves her with a foodie hangover, The Art of Eating In is a journey to savor. Watch a Video

Imagine, as so many burned-out suburbanites do, leaving the corporate rat race behind to renovate and run a charming inn or bed-and-breakfast in the countryside. Widower Steve Allen did just that when his only daughter headed off to college. He sold their large family home and his business, bought a run-down inn in Sugar Hill, New Hampshire (pop. approximately 500), and learned by doing. He spent the next decade mastering the art of innkeeping. In this engaging memoir of following one’s dream, readers will follow Steve’s journey as he attempts to bring his “rustic luxury” aesthetic to the secluded White Mountains of New Hampshire. In a seemingly counterintuitive move, he turns a faded property and faltering business into a successful Select Registry- Distinguished Inns of North America by catering to a previously underserved market. Travelers seeking a premium high-end room at the inn appreciate the fine French/Refined American dining, Wine Spectator Award–winning cellar, and other special amenities Steve provides. The extensive remodel included the bold step of creating the Dream Cottage, Steve’s personal idea of the perfect romantic getaway suite and light-years away from a grandmother’s fussy, Victorian-style room so common at other B&Bs. The epitome of relaxed, timeless chic, the sexy Dream Cottage was lovingly constructed by local craftsmen and features every creature comfort in an idyllic natural setting. In a perfect fairy-tale ending, Steve finds true love along the way after hosting numerous proposal weekends, weddings, and honeymoons, culminating in a fairy-tale wedding for Karen and Steve at the Sugar Hill Inn.
