The basis for the PBS Special, What Are You Hungry For? is the breakthrough book that can bring weight under effortless control by linking it to personal fulfillment in every area of a reader's life. After promoting this message worldwide for thirty years, bestselling author Deepak Chopra focuses on the huge problem of weight control in America with exciting new concepts. What are you hungry for? Food? Love? Self-esteem? Peace? In this manual for "higher health," based on the latest findings in both mainstream and alternative medicine, Deepak Chopra creates a vision of weight loss based on a deeper awareness of why people overeat - because they are trying to find satisfaction and wind up using food as a substitute for real fulfillment. Repudiating the failed approaches of crash dieting and all forms of deprivation, Chopra's new book aims directly at the problem of finding fulfillment. When that problem is solved, he argues, normal eating falls into place automatically, and the entire system of mind and body achieves what it really desires. “Everyone’s life story is complicated, and the best intentions go astray because people find it hard to change,” writes Chopra. “Bad habits, like bad memories, stick around stubbornly when we wish they’d go away. But you have a great motivation working for you, which is your desire for happiness. I define happiness as the state of fulfillment, and everyone wants to be fulfilled. If you keep your eye on this, your most basic motivation, then the choices you make come down to a single question: “What am I hungry for?” Your true desire will lead you in the right direction. False desires lead in the wrong direction.” Wherever you are in life, this book will help point you in that right direction. From the Hardcover edition.

Shanghai, 1937. Pearl and May are two sisters from a bourgeois family. Though their personalities are very different - Pearl is a Dragon sign, strong and stubborn, while May is a true Sheep, adorable and placid - they are inseparable best friends. Both are beautiful, modern and living a carefree life ... until the day their father tells them that he has gambled away the family's wealth, and that in order to repay his debts he must sell the girls as wives to two 'Gold Mountain' men: Americans. As Japanese bombs fall on their beloved city, the two sisters set out on the journey of a lifetime, one that will take them through the villages of southern China, in and out of the clutches of brutal soldiers, and even across the ocean, through the humiliation of an anti-Chinese detention centre to a new, married life in Los Angeles's Chinatown. Here they begin a fresh chapter, despite the racial discrimination and anti-Communist paranoia, because now they have something to strive for: a young, American-born daughter, Joy. Along the way there are terrible sacrifices, impossible choices and one devastating, life-changing secret, but through it all the two heroines of this astounding new novel by Lisa See hold fast to who they are - Shanghai girls.

There's also inspiration from the Middle East and North Africa, with the likes of Whole quail with a pomegranate marinade and Seven vegetable couscous.

" "Whenever I see that Dos Equis commercial – ‘the most interesting man in the world’ – I always think, no, that’s not true. The most interesting man in the world is Alex Atala." – David Chang "A cuisine unlike anything I’ve ever had in my life." – Daniel Humm, Eleven Madison Mark At D.O.M. in São Paulo, widely regarded as one of the world’s best restaurants, you won’t find the traditional staples of fine dining on the menu. For the past 15 years, acclaimed chef Alex Atala – a native of Brazil and the only chef named one of TIME magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2013 – has refused to import any ingredients traditionally found in the European kitchens where he once trained. Instead, Atala scours the lush bounty of the Amazon for indigenous produce and proteins, crafting a cuisine that is steeped in classical techniques yet distinctly and uniquely Brazilian. D.O.M.: Rediscovering Brazilian Ingredients is Atala’s first major cookbook. Here, he offers an in‐depth look at the products and creative process that make up his innovative cuisine. The book features 65 recipes such as Fresh Heart of Palm with Scallops and Coral Sauce; Lightly Toasted Black Rice with Green Vegetables and Brazil Nut Milk; Lamb Hind Shanks with Yam Puree and Pitanga; and Priprioca, Lime, and Banana Ravioli. 150 stunning color photographs bring each dish to life and reveal the lush, vibrant landscapes of Atala’s Brazil. The result is an immersive experience that transports readers into the streets of São Paulo and the rain forests of Amazon. Also featuring an introduction by chef Alain Ducasse, D.O.M.: Rediscovering Brazilian Ingredients explores the mind of one of the world’s best chefs as he captures flavors that can be found nowhere else in the world.

Revered restaurateur Jiro’s extended chat on all things sushi shocked the industry and aficionados alike when it was first published in 1997 and has remained indispensable over the years thanks to his nonchalant revelation of top trade secrets. While first and last things cannot be so easily taught and the Sukiyabashi experience has stayed as unique as he warned with a wink, it is no exaggeration to call this book, finally available in English, the Bible of sushi chefs. Based on countless interviews over an extended period by a critic who had been better known for his comfort food expertise, marvelously retaining the maestro’s pleasantly down-to-earth voice, and amply illustrated with color photos, here is a belated surprise gift to all serious lovers of sushi who must rely on the vernacular.
