Gin: A Global History - Lesley Jacobs Solmonson

Gin: A Global History tells you everything you ever wanted to know about this magical and delicious spirit borne of juniper berries and ingenuity. Author Lesley Jacobs Solomon discusses how Gin’s numerous incarnations around the globe were shaped by human factors like war, colonization, famine, religion and prohibition. She explores the different distillation processes and ingredients of the so-called “Dutch Courage” that created endless variations, each with their own unique flavor profile. With great anecdotes and an index of recipes, Gin: A Global History proves why this cocktail has such a storied past and is now at the forefront of the current artisanal spirit craze.

Balaboosta - Einat Admony

The Yiddish title of this wonderful Mediterranean cookbook is a word for “good homemaker.” The recipes are divided into useful sections for any excellent host or homemaker such as Casual Dinner Party, Quick and Easy, Romantic, Comfort, Outdoor, Healthy, and Fancy-Schmancy. Each section contains a mix of recipes for drinks, entrées, mains, and deserts that can be combined into full meals that are perfect for any occasion. While recipes vary in swankiness, they’re all doable and many are faster than you would expect. Balaboosta even gave me the confidence to try making spinach fettuccini; it was delicious.
