In Appetites stellt Anthony Bourdain seine Lieblingsgerichte vor, die ihm schon während seiner Kindheit, später in seiner Karriere als Koch und natürlich auf seinen Reisen ans Herz gewachsen sind. Doch Appetites ist weit mehr als ein Kochbuch. Es ist ein Kunstwerk. Ein Manifest. Eine Reflexion über das (richtige) Leben und ein Schlachtplan für die Küche, der dabei hilft, Gäste mit atemberaubender Effizienz in Schrecken zu versetzen. Die Fotos sind rebellisch, frech, ungeschönt, unkonventionell. Sie zeigen, wie es in einer Küche wirklich zugeht, und zelebrieren Bourdains Bad-Boy-Image auf schaurig-schöne Weise. Die Gerichte schmecken dennoch fantastisch und sollten – in Bourdains Augen – wirklich von jedem gekocht werden können.

Chinese society and culture changed dramatically with the end of Maoist socialism in the early 1980s. So did the everyday life of Chinese bodies. In Appetites Judith Farquhar shows how new forms of desire, pleasure, anxiety and curiosity emerged as capitalist reforms advanced. Though many have suggested that after decades of socialist collectivism people simply returned to their natural human inclinations toward food and sex, Farquhar argues instead that novel needs and experiences of private life came into existence after the end of the Maoist period. The mundane activity of eating well in improving economic times is linked to historical memories of the late 1950s famine. The systematic understanding of flavours in traditional Chinese medicine connects to a modern self-consciousness about life of the body. Even the self who can indulge private sexual passions, and the sexuality that can be assesses by social psychologists, must be invented and sustained in on-going public reflections about personal and national life. Ranging over a variety of cultural terrains - fiction, medical texts, film and television, journalism and observations of clinics and urban daily life in Beijing - Appetites sympathetically analyses modern Chinese reflections in a changing world. As much at home in science studies and social theory as in the details of life in Beijing, this account will appeal to China scholars, medical anthropologists, ethnographers in many fields and specialists in cultural studies.

#1 New York Times bestselling author of Women Food and God Roth speaks of issues that, chauvinism aside, only women can truly understand and identify with. In the past, her books were about food, weight, dieting, and the almost universal obsession that women have with their bodies and self-esteem. Now her canvas of introspection and discussion has expanded: eight chapters examine the nature of women's friendships, the craving to be famous, the longing for safety, and the search for a parallel life (or the perfect fantasy), among other topics. Based on intensely personal experiences, written with intensely emotional and intellectually probing prose, Roth's book pushes far beyond the issue of weight to ask what will make women happy. Her not-so-easy answers, divined from decades of therapy, of experiential beingness, of Buddhist practice, will speak to many. "Roth tells of her own experiences with a non-blink frankness cushioned by the gracefulness of her prose."—Chicago Tribune "Just the right mix of confession, sass, and style."—Publishers Weekly From the Trade Paperback edition.

What looks like a consciously altruistic effort to encapsulate one woman's entire life into lessons for the benefit of womankind may be just that: after divulging every gruesome detail of her spiral into anorexia and subsequent self-discoveries in this memoir, Knapp died of lung cancer last June at age 42. Similar in tone to her previous Drinking: A Love Story, this work is candid and persuasive enough to reach many women with analogous problems. But it's more than one woman's tragic story; multitudinous interviews with women with eating disorders, excerpts from classic feminist texts and sociological statistics lend credence and categorize the book under cultural studies as much as self-help. Knapp hypothesizes that the feminists who came after the revolutionary 1960s, herself included, were stifled rather than empowered by the overwhelming choices before them. They gained ''the freedom to hunger and to satisfy hunger in all its varied forms.'' Unfortunately, writes Knapp, size-obsessed fashion magazines and other social messages contradict a woman's right to desire, contributing to the rise in eating disorders and other illnesses. Knapp observes an aspect of the backlash against the feminist movement: when ''women were demanding the right to take up more space in the world,'' they were being told by a still patriarchal society ''to grow physically smaller.'' Though Knapp admits it's ''easier to worry about the body than the soul,'' she hopes creating a dialogue about anorexia will enable all women to nourish both.

Although Marie LeNotre s life didn t follow the path her mother imagined Marie as a beautiful, blonde actress in Hollywood it did find a path that led her to an extraordinary and fulfilling life. As an accomplished student with an array of degrees, Marie is the founder and director of the renowned Culinary Institute LeNotre. In Appetites she shares her childhood dreams and adolescent struggles, the pains and joys of love in France, and the way she made the famous culinary name of LeNotre her own and helped spread it across the globe. Appetites begins with two story lines the early life of Marie and that of her husband Alain that meld into one: the story of Marie and Alain together in Houston and the birth of their Culinary Institute. Marie s story traces her journey through Greece and France, and finally settles in the US, weaving her personal and professional struggles together. Marie writes passionately about difficulties in establishing the school, its eventual success, and the joy she finds in working with the students. Her memoir provides fascinating insight into the LeNotre Empire, a heartwarming love story, and a reflection on life s spiritual journey."

After meeting Jesus, Paul, once the world-class advocate of the disciplined life, told everyone he met that Jesus, by taking not just our sins but the appetites that cause sins to the cross, became the Truth that set us free from that way of life (Gal 2:20 & 5:24). Illuminated by inspiring analogies, this book describes how you can get everything Jesus purchased for you: freedom from not just the penalty but freedom from the power of sin. As Chaplin Bill says, this book reveals that “true freedom from the cycle of self indulgent appetites comes only through Christ, and not our own self discipline.” Instead of impassioned reminders of your duties, this book speaks joy to your emotions.
