This debut cookbook from James Beard Rising Star Chef Gabriel Rucker features a serious yet playful collection of 150 recipes from his phenomenally popular Portland restaurant. In the five years since Gabriel Rucker took the helm at Le Pigeon, he has catapulted from culinary school dropout to award-winning chef. Le Pigeon is offal-centric and meat-heavy, but by no means dogmatic, offering adventures into delicacies unknown along with the chance to order a vegetarian mustard greens quiche and a Miller High Life if that's what you're craving. In their first cookbook, Rucker and general manager/sommelier Andrew Fortgang celebrate high-low extremes in cooking, combining the wild and the refined in a unique and progressive style. Featuring wine recommendations from sommelier Andrew Fortgang, stand-out desserts from pastry chef Lauren Fortgang, and stories about the restaurant’s raucous, seat-of-the-pants history by writer Meredith Erickson, Le Pigeon combines the wild and the refined in a unique, progressive, and delicious style.
This is the first major study of two overlapping strands of contemporary French cinema, "cinéma beur" (films by young directors of Maghrebi immigrant origin) and "cinéma de banlieue" (films set in France's disadvantaged outer-city estates). Carrie Tarr's insightful account draws on a wide range of films, from directors such as Mehdi Charef, Mathieu Kassowitz and Djamel Bensalah. Foregrounding such issues as the quest for identity, the negotiation of space and the recourse to memory and history, she argues that these films challenge and reframe the symbolic spaces of French culture, addressing issues of ethnicity and difference which are central to today's debates about what it means to be French.
On the day that Paris fell to the Nazis, R. G. Waldeck was checking into the swankiest hotel in Bucharest, the Athene Palace. A cosmopolitan center during the war, the hotel was populated by Italian and German oilmen hoping to secure new business opportunities in Romania, international spies cloaked in fake identities, and Nazi officers whom Waldeck discovered to be intelligent but utterly bloodless. A German Jew and a reporter for Newsweek, Waldeck became a close observer of the Nazi invasion. As King Carol first tried to placate the Nazis, then abdicated the throne in favor of his son, Waldeck was dressing for dinners with diplomats and cozying up to Nazi officers to get insight and information. From her unique vantage, she watched as Romania, a country with a pro-totalitarian elite and a deep strain of anti-Semitism, suffered civil unrest, a German invasion, and an earthquake, before turning against the Nazis. A striking combination of social intimacy and disinterest political analysis, Athene Palace evokes the elegance and excitement of the dynamic international community in Bucharest before the world had comes to grips with the horrors of war and genocide. Waldeck’s account strikingly presents the finely wrought surface of dinner parties, polite discourse, and charisma, while recognizing the undercurrents of violence and greed that ran through the denizens of Athene Palace.

Extrait: ...C'etait le decalogue du genre humain dans toutes les langues. La Revolution moderne appelait les Gentils comme les Juifs au partage de la lumiere et au regne de la fraternite. Aussi, n'y eut-il pas un de ses apotres qui ne proclamat la paix entre les peuples. Mirabeau, la Fayette, Robespierre lui-meme effacerent la guerre du symbole qu'ils presentaient a la nation. Ce furent les factieux et les ambitieux qui la demanderent plus tard; ce ne furent pas les grands revolutionnaires. Quand la guerre eclata, la Revolution avait degenere. L'Assemblee constituante se serait bien gardee de placer aux frontieres de la France les bornes de ses verites et de renfermer l'ame sympathique de la Revolution francaise dans un etroit patriotisme. La patrie de ses dogmes etait le globe. La France n'etait que l'atelier ou elle travaillait pour tous les peuples. Respectueuse ou indifferente a la question des territoires nationaux, des son premier mot elle s'interdit les conquetes. Elle ne se reservait que la propriete ou plutot l'invention des verites generales qu'elle mettait en lumiere. Universelle comme l'humanite, elle n'eut pas l'egoismc de s'isoler. Elle voulut donner et non derober. Elle voulut se repandre par le droit et non par la force. Essentiellement spiritualiste, elle n'affecta d'autre empire pour la France que l'empire volontaire de l'imitation sur l'esprit humain. Son uvre etait prodigieuse, ses moyens nuls; tout ce que l'enthousiasme lui...
