The Art of the Shim: Low-Alcohol Cocktails to Keep You Level

By Dinah Sanders

San Francisco: S + G, 2013. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/no jacket, as issued. About As New in all respects. Clean and unmarked. First printing, full number line. "Why have one delightful cocktail when you can have two or three? This book, as elegant as it is useful, adds a golden arrow to the serious drink-mixer's quiver. Armed with it, I look forward to shimming everyone in sight." -- David Wondrich, Esquire columnist and author of Imbibe! and Punch (advance praise). From the author: "...I revisited about 500 recipes from 150 years of cocktail books and other sources. Once the final 53 recipes were selected, I again contacted bartenders and others in the cocktail world to bring their voices into the book. I also confirmed the history of each recipe with the goal of providing as accurately as possible the origin of these drinks. Where I was able to connect with living drink creators, I included their thoughts on the cocktail. The book was tested with beta readers representing cocktail fans, industry professionals, and those new to the subject. Fortunately, all this hard work was also tremendous fun and I thank everyone involved, especially you, the reader. Enjoy! " Every effort is made to ship all books and other items within 24 hours.

The Ottoman Turk and the Pretty Jewish Girl

By Beyhan Cagri Trock

Cupper James Publishing, 2012. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/very good. Except for some slight wear to the jacket the book and jacket are like new in all respects. Possible authorial inscription to the front endpaper. First printing stated. Beyhan Cagri Trock is the "daughter of a Jewish mother (Beti) and Muslim father (Zeki) who immigrated with the family to the US in 1958. Her book, The Ottoman Turk and the Pretty Jewish Girl, is an outstanding Turkish/Sephardic cookbook as well as a fascinating memoir that captures a precious legacy—the “old world” family recipes which have been passed down from one generation of cooks to the next in an unbroken chain."--The Jewish Food Experience. "It is no coincidence that the book is coming out just in time for Passover: This is the holiday where American Jews seem to connect with their roots the most. For Trock, Passover was the time where she felt that she really belonged to her Ladino Sephardic Jewish culture, cradled in the bosom of her mother and aunts, who did all the cooking for the family Seder. “Turkish and Jewish Turkish food is pretty much the same—except at Passover,” she told me. “That is when the old recipes really come out.” For Passover, she said, Turkish Jews made wonderful vegetable and egg casseroles, meat and vegetable patties, and even matzoh-layered meat and vegetable pies."-- Tablet Mag.
