Ethnic American Food Today introduces readers to the myriad ethnic food cultures in the U.S. today. Entries are organized alphabetically by nation and present the background and history of each food culture along with explorations of the place of that food in mainstream American society today. Many of the entries draw upon ethnographic research and personal experience, giving insights into the meanings of various ethnic food traditions as well as into what, how, and why people of different ethnicities are actually eating today. The entries look at foodways—the network of activities surrounding food itself—as well as the beliefs and aesthetics surrounding that food, and the changes that have occurred over time and place. They also address stereotypes of that food culture and the culture’s influence on American eating habits and menus, describing foodways practices in both private and public contexts, such as restaurants, groceries, social organizations, and the contemporary world of culinary arts. Recipes of representative or iconic dishes are included. This timely two-volume encyclopedia addresses the complexity—and richness—of both ethnicity and food in America today.

The guide described by The New York Times as â€œindispensable,â€ revised and updated for 2008, fills a vital niche for expatriates and Cairenes alike who need a helping hand to organize-and enjoyâ€”the challenges of a sojourn in Cairo. The basics of daily lifeâ€”finding a flat, transporting personal goods, investigating school options for children, navigating Egyptâ€™s famous bureaucracy, and the intricacies of feeding and clothing oneself and oneâ€™s family from the local marketâ€”are all detailed here. Advice gathered from a wide range of Cairo insiders, both native and foreign, gives the reader a cornucopia of current facts on prices, neighborhoods, product availability, work and business opportunities, and the dizzying range of cultural and leisure pursuits that Cairo is famous for. The format of this edition addresses the needs of independently minded tourists, as well as residents, by the inclusion of: an A-to-Z directory of goods, services, and interests subdivided by neighborhood; a language section on the basics of Cairene Arabic; and details on shopping and sightseeing from a residentâ€™s perspective. Cairo: The Practical Guide, now in its sixteenth edition, is the key to deciphering the complexities of living, working, and enjoying life in one of the worldâ€™s most exciting and dauntingly complex mega-cities.
Suzanne Zeidy grew up in a household that loved to cook. Every Friday her Aunt Alba would round up the extended family for a huge Egyptian style supper, where they would gossip, laugh and feast on traditional home-style cooking. In Cairo Kitchen, Suzanne shares the classics that ignited her love of food, as well as her more modern recipes, which are inspired by Middle Eastern flavours. A combination of authentic street food and delicious home-style cooking, this is modern Middle Eastern food, all set against the exotic, vibrant backdrop of Cairo. Try her stuffed vine leaves, home-style beef kofta stew and age-old recipes for breads. Her modern dishes are classics reinterpreted in a fresh and original way. Try quail on quinoa tabboula or seared sea bass on baba ghanoush and a rice kofta served on vermicelli noodles. The chapter on pickles and preserves will transform any dish into a mouthwatering Middle Easternstyle delicacy, and the sweets, such as Halawa truffles and date and walnut cake, are irresistible. Middle Eastern food is made for sharing, and Cairo Kitchen is filled with standout recipes, perfect for any gathering. Illustrated throughout with stunning pictures by award-winning photographer Jonathan Gregson, this stylish cookbook is a celebration of Cairo and its wonderful food.
Paula Wolfert is passionate about the Mediterranean -- its landscape, its people, its culture, and above all, its rich culinary tradition. Her five earlier cookbooks celebrated the sensuous pleasures of the Mediterranean kitchen and introduced a previously uninitiated American audience to an exciting new way of cooking and eating. In her eagerly awaited Mediterranean Grains and Greens, Wolfert continues that tradition, focusing on the delectable grains and greens-based dishes she discovered as she spent five years traversing the Mediterranean region, from Spain in the west toIsrael, Lebanon, and Syria in the east, with stops in France, Italy, Turkey, and Greece. Here are bountiful breads (Mirsini's Spiced Barley Bread); mouthwatering pastries (Spicy Beef, Olives, and Capers in Semolina Pastry Turnovers); nourishing comfort soups (Garlic Soup with Leafy Greens); crisp salads of mixed greens, cooked green salads, and savory grain salads (Samira's Tabbouleh with Parsley, Bulgur, Cinnamon, and Cumin); unusual desserts (Tunisian Homemade Couscous with Golden Raisins); and accompanying sauces, condiments, and seasonings. Though Mediterranean Grains and Greens is not a vegetarian cookbook, meat, fish, and poultry, when they appear, are used primarily as condiments and flavor enhancers rather than the main focus of a meal. Throughout, Wolfert explains the historical and cultural significance of her dishes, sharing traditional preparation techniques as well as her adaptations for the American home kitchen. Ever conscious of the availability of ingredients in this country, she recommends readily available alternatives found in grocery stores and farmer's markets. Whether foraging for wild "apron greens" in the Turkish countryside, "listening" to risotto in Venice to tell if it's ready to eat, making homemade rustic pasta on the island of Crete, baking Sardinian flatbread the old-fashioned way, scrambling eggs with kofte along the Euphrates, or preparing the unusual "black paellas" of Valencia, Paula Wolfert shares her adventures in the engaging first-person stories that accompany each recipe. This comprehensive collection invites Paula Wolfert's loyal fans and followers to rediscover the joys of Mediterranean living, cooking, and eating right along with her. Like her earlier works, the enticing, wide-ranging Mediterranean Grains and Greens is destined to become a kitchen classic, a book that every serious cook, armchair traveler, and lover of good food will want to own.
