Bicycles are more than just a sporty gadget that are ecofriendly and available for anyone: For fans of the Tour-de-France or the Giro d'Italia, the racing bicycle is in the center of more than a century of history of heroic legends and athletic top performances. On the other side, the fans of the more robust bicycle have let the Mountain bike live up a golden era during the 90's - with its funky colouring and individual single parts, that have become real collector's items today. This collection displays the bicycle as a style icon in all its facets and technical developments: ranging from the futuristic carbon bicycle to the aesthetic racing bicycle classic and the luxurious unique bicycle made of gold and diamonds.

Pierre Herme is universally acknowledged as the king of French pastry with shops in Tokyo, Paris and London. He is the best, and has even been described as a couturier of pastry. This is a man at the top of his art and there is no question his macarons are in a league of its own. Macarons are the aristocrats of pastry; these brightly coloured, mini meringues, daintily sandwiched together with gooey fillings, have become a holy grail for cookery fanatics and there are even food blogs dedicated to them. Now for the first time, all the macaron recipes from this most celebrated French patissier are published in English. The French language edition has been one of the most sought after cookbooks of recent years. And just like Pierre Herme's famous macarons, it would be difficult for any macaron book to surpass this one. There are 200 pages of recipes and beautiful food photography, and because making macarons is mostly about technique, rather than just a standard recipe, readers will appreciate the 32-step-by-step photo-illustrated instructions for making shells and fillings. All the classics are here like dark chocolate, praline, coffee, and pistachio, but others feature the more unusual macarons that Herme is justly famous for: Isfahan is one, with lychee, rose and raspberry, Arabesque with apricot and pistachio, Satine with passion fruit, orange and cream cheese, Mandarin and pink pepper, black truffles, balsamic vinegar as well as a bright-green macaron filled with fresh mint. Anyone interested in making macarons will find Pierre Herme's the best book in print.

This book contains more cocktails than any other—1500 of them, ranging from classic Martinis to unblushing modern concoctions such as Sex on the Beach.
Recipes are user friendly, assembled on a ‘unit’ basis that clearly shows the proportions needed to make the perfect cocktail—without fuss. Ingredients and equipment are easy to acquire, techniques straightforward. Bewildering measures—’jigger’, ‘half-gill’ 3/4 fl oz—are avoided.
There is much entertainment to be found in these pages too, with revealing anecdotes about many of the cocktails, and generous sprinklings of apposite quotations, risqué jokes and little curiosities.
The Ultimate Cocktail Book is more than a reference guide, it’s a concocter’s companion and a source of enlightenment. A volume tailor-made, in short, for good mixers.
