Wood Whiskey and Wine

Wood Whiskey and Wine

$35.00
More Info
Barrels--we rarely acknowledge their importance, but without them we would be missing out on some of the world's finest beverages--most notably whiskies and wines--and of course for over two thousand years they've been used to store, transport, and age an incredibly diverse array of provisions around the globe. In this comprehensive and wide-ranging book, Henry Work tells the intriguing story of the significant and ever-evolving role wooden barrels have played during the last two millennia, revealing how the history of the barrel parallels that of technology at large.

Exploring how barrels adapted to the requirements of the world's changing economy, Work journeys back to the barrel's initial development, describing how the Celtic tribes of Northern Europe first crafted them in the first millennia BCE. He shows how barrels became intrinsically linked to the use of wood and ships and grew into a vital and flexible component of the shipping industry, used to transport not only wine and beer, but also nails, explosives, and even Tabasco sauce. Going beyond the shipping of goods, Work discusses the many uses of this cylindrical container and its relations--including its smaller cousin, the keg--and examines the process of aging different types of alcohol. He also looks at how barrels have survived under threat from today's plastics, cardboards, and metals.

Offering a new way of thinking about one of the most enduring and successful products in history, Wood, Whiskey and Wine will be a must-read for everyone from technology buffs to beverage aficionados who wish to better understand that evasive depth of flavor.

A YouTube celebrity and food blogger's budget friendly cookbook shows how real people can have real food, real cheap

Rebecca Lando was sick of survival eating. The sight of boxed mac 'n' cheese and ramen noodles curdled her appetite, but her meager paycheck severely limited her options. Creatively cooking led to what's now a popular weekly web series chronicling her adventures in making delicious cheap meals--with the best local and seasonal ingredients.

In The Working Class Foodies' Cookbook, Rebecca's mission is to share tasty, affordable recipes and invaluable advice for the home cook, including how to stock a $40, $60, and $100 pantry; which organic items are okay to skip; and why making your own stock, ketchup, and even Pop-Tarts is good for your body and your wallet.

Many people think that the real food movement is only for the wealthy, but Rebecca's delicious recipes--including red-skinned potatoes coated in chives and butter for under $2, sweet potato gnocchi for under $5, and a chicken roast for under $8--show readers the way to eating better and more cheaply. Starving students, working parents, and fixed-income retirees alike will eat up Rebecca's message, because real people deserve real food, real cheap!
