Download and read online Ten Restaurants That Changed America in PDF and EPUB From Delmonico’s to Sylvia’s to Chez Panisse, a daring and original history of dining out in America as told through ten legendary restaurants. Combining a historian’s rigor with a foodie ’s palate, Ten Restaurants That Changed America reveals how the history of our restaurants reflects nothing less than the history of America itself. Whether charting the rise of our love affair with Chinese food through San Francisco’s fabled The Mandarin, evoking the richness of Italian food through Mamma Leone’s, or chronicling the rise and fall of French haute cuisine through Henri Soulé’s Le Pavillon, food historian Paul Freedman uses each restaurant to tell a wider story of race and class, immigration and assimilation. Freedman also treats us to a scintillating history of the then-revolutionary Schrafft’s, a chain of convivial lunch spots that catered to women, and that bygone favorite, Howard Johnson’s, which pioneered midcentury, on-the-road dining, only to be swept aside by McDonald's. Lavishly designed with more than 100 photographs and images, including original menus, Ten Restaurants That Changed America is a significant and highly entertaining social history.
Download and read online Aprons A Tale of Tradition in PDF and EPUB Historical nonfiction genre has been widely divergent in subject matter and approach. There is no reason to believe authorial creativity will dry out anytime soon. The history of food preparation’s attire gives the overall and –long narrative swift movement through time and events in both commercial and domestic kitchens. “I am a Librarian: I bring history in my research, and history of fashion accessories into my books.” (Tomshinsky, 2014) Since ancient times, aprons have been used as the simplest ways of covering the human body while preparing food. Aprons evolved into a practical way of shielding one’s body from more just prying eyes. Aprons were frequently included in the chefs’ uniforms, household servants’ wardrobe, from cooks to maids. From a simple garment to an essential protective layer, from the staid to the designer fashions, aprons have come a long way. They are currently at the center of the Renaissance of chic and practicality of the kitchen attire for chefs and modern women who like to cook and entertain.
Download and read online Savoring Gotham in PDF and EPUB When it comes to food, there has never been another city quite like New York. The Big Apple--a telling nickname--is the city of 50,000 eateries, of fish wriggling in Chinatown baskets, huge pastrami sandwiches on rye, fizzy egg creams, and frosted black and whites. It is home to possibly the densest concentration of ethnic and regional food establishments in the world, from German and Jewish delis to Greek diners, Brazilian steakhouses, Puerto Rican and Dominican bodegas, halal food carts, Irish pubs, Little Italy, and two Koreatowns (Flushing and Manhattan). This is the city where, if you choose to have Thai for dinner, you might also choose exactly which region of Thailand you wish to dine in. Savoring Gotham weaves the full tapestry of the city's rich gastronomy in nearly 570 accessible, informative A-to-Z entries. Written by nearly 180 of the most notable food experts-most of them New Yorkers--Savoring Gotham addresses the food, people, places, and institutions that have made New York cuisine so wildly diverse and immensely appealing. Reach only a little ways back into the city's ever-changing culinary kaleidoscope and discover automats, the precursor to fast food restaurants, where diners in a hurry dropped nickels into slots to unlock their premade meal of choice. Or travel to the nineteenth century, when oysters cost a few cents and were pulled by the bucketful from the Hudson River. Back then the city was one of the major centers of sugar refining, and of brewing, too--48 breweries once existed in Brooklyn alone, accounting for roughly 10% of all the beer brewed in the United States. Travel further back still and learn of the Native Americans who arrived in the area 5,000 years before New York was New York, and who planted the maize, squash, and beans that European and other settlers to the New World embraced centuries later. Savoring Gotham covers New York's culinary history, but also some of the most recognizable restaurants, eateries, and culinary personalities today. And it delves into more esoteric culinary realities, such as urban farming, beekeeping, the Three Martini Lunch and the Power Lunch, and novels, movies, and paintings that memorably depict Gotham's foodscapes. From hot dog stands to haute cuisine, each borough is represented. A foreword by Brooklyn Brewery Brewmaster Garrett Oliver and an extensive bibliography round out this sweeping new collection.
Download and read online The Father and Daughter A Tale in Prose in PDF and EPUB The night was dark,—the wind blew keenly over the frozen and rugged heath, when Agnes, pressing her moaning child to her bosom, was travelling on foot to her father's habitation. "Would to God I had never left it!" she exclaimed, as home and all its enjoyments rose in fancy to her view:—and I think my readers will be ready to join in the exclamation, when they hear the poor wanderer's history. Agnes Fitzhenry was the only child of a respectable merchant in a country town, who, having lost his wife when his daughter was very young, resolved for her sake to form no second connection. To the steady, manly affection of a father, Fitzhenry joined the fond anxieties and endearing attentions of a mother; and his parental care was amply repaid by the love and amiable qualities of Agnes. He was not rich; yet the profits of his trade were such as to enable him to bestow every possible expense on his daughter's education, and to lay up a considerable sum yearly for her future support: whatever else he could spare from his own absolute wants, he expended in procuring comforts and pleasures for her.—"What an excellent father that man is!" was the frequent exclamation among his acquaintance—"And what an excellent child he has! well may he be proud of her!" was as commonly the answer to it. Nor was this to be wondered at:—Agnes united to extreme beauty of face and person every accomplishment that belongs to her own sex, and a great degree of that strength of mind and capacity for acquiring knowledge supposed to belong exclusively to the other. For this combination of rare qualities Agnes was admired;—for her sweetness of temper, her willingness to oblige, her seeming unconsciousness of her own merits, and her readiness to commend the merits of others,—for these still rarer qualities, Agnes was beloved: and she seldom formed an acquaintance without at the same time securing a friend. Her father thought he loved her (and perhaps he was right) as never father loved a child before; and Agnes thought she loved him as child never before loved father.—"I will not marry, but live single for my father's sake," she often said;—but she altered her determination when her heart, hitherto unmoved by the addresses of the other sex, was assailed by an officer in the guards who came to recruit in the town in which she resided.

Download and read online Cooking with Chef Silvio in PDF and EPUB A guided tour of the cuisine, culture, and rich culinary history of the Campania region of Italy. Join Anthony V. Riccio and Chef Silvio Suppa for a guided tour of the rich culinary history of southern Italy. Known to the Romans as Campania Felix, or “fertile countryside,” Chef Silvio’s home region of Campania is blessed with rich volcanic soil and warm sea breezes, which has resulted in an exuberant and varied cuisine that draws not only on the region’s abundant fresh vegetables and herbs but also centuries of Roman, Arab, Spanish, and French influences. From traditional favorites like eggplant parmigiana andpacche e fasul to family recipes like Aunt Irma’s stuffed peppers and Maria Suppa’s zabaglione, Cooking with Chef Silvio offers hearty and heartwarming fare, as well as the stories behind the food, a cultural and social history of a region as told through its cuisine. “…Silvio’s recipes are remarkable because they are so honest and uncontrived. There’s a spare maturity to his dishes. Of the thirty or so Italian cookbooks I have at home, this one just became my favorite.” — Matt Sutherland, ForeWord Reviews “Cooking with Chef Silvio: Stories and Authentic Recipes from Campania is more than an Italian cookbook—it’s a coffee table amalgam of southern Italy’s culinary cultural history, peppered with delightful anecdotes as well as delectable recipes … An excellent choice for cookbook collections.” — Wisconsin Bookwatch “There’s always space for another Italian cookbook in my kitchen. Simple, easy, and straightforward, Silvio’s cooking will regale you, satisfying your belly and your soul.” — Chef Jacques Pépin “I am 100% Italian, yet have not had the chance to fly over to Italy, so instead of pulling out my passport, I head to the Connecticut shoreline where I feel like I am truly getting a slice of authentic Italian cuisine! Chef Silvio has been such a delight to work with—so entertaining on air and just as warm off the air—I feel like he is one of my relatives the way he always greets me with open arms and a freshly piped cannoli! The only downfall? The umpteen pounds I have put on from a few too many visits to his restaurant.” — Dina Stavola, FOX-TV CT “The countryside of Campania comes alive in Cooking with Chef Silvio. These simple, flavorful, and rustic dishes inspire families to come together. Bring the bounty of Italian cuisine and the engaging history of the region to your table.” — Chef Christopher Prosperi, Metro Bis Restaurant, Simsbury, CT After learning the art of cooking from his grandmother, Silvio Suppa brought his knowledge of l’arte della cucina to the United States in 1968, where he became one of the architects of the cuisine now known as “New Haven Italian.” After cooking at New Haven’s famed Del Monaco’s Restaurant for more than twenty years, he and his wife, sVittoria, moved to Madison, Connecticut, where he continues to serve his beloved Mediterranean classics at Café Allegre and three other restaurants: The Woodwinds, in Branford; Chef Silvio’s, in Guilford; and Allegre Gourmet Express, in Madison. I have had the immense pleasure of booking Chef Silvio Suppa on the Fox-TV CT Morning Show several times. People always ask “how can you make Italian food different?” well they have never tasted Silvio’s creations. He puts his heart and soul into every dish and it makes you feel as if he is personally preparing it for you!
