In this widely hailed book, NPR correspondent Tom Gjelten fuses the story of the Bacardi family and their famous rum business with Cuba's tumultuous experience over the last 150 years to produce a deeply entertaining historical narrative. The company Facundo Bacardi launched in Cuba in 1862 brought worldwide fame to the island, and in the decades that followed his Bacardi descendants participated in every aspect of Cuban life. With his intimate account of their struggles and adventures across five generations, Gjelten brings to life the larger story of Cuba's fight for freedom, its tortured relationship with America, the rise of Fidel Castro, and the violent division of the Cuban nation.

"One sip of their Cuban coffee will keep you up for a week, which is perfect--that way you can have their delicioso desayuno every day."--Sunny Anderson, Food Network "Now--finally--this wonderful collection of insightful stories and priceless recipes . . . Qué maravilla!"--John Quiñones, ABC News "If you haven't tasted Versailles, you don't know Miami."--Pamela Silva Conde, Univision "How brilliant to be able to take Versailles home!"--Daisy Olivera, former Miami Herald columnist "What is a trip to Miami without a Cuban sandwich from this Little Havana landmark?"--Chef Art Smith Featured on the Food Network, the Travel Channel, and CNN and named by Time as one of the top ten places to visit in Miami, Versailles Restaurant has been at the heart of the Cuban-American community for decades. Presidents, politicians, and pop stars routinely stop in for a meal and a photo op. In 1971, Felipe Valls Sr. opened Versailles in Miami's Little Havana, fulfilling his vision to create a Cuban hub--a place where friends and families could get together to enjoy high quality food at affordable prices. The restaurant's success still hinges on this premise. The Versailles Restaurant Cookbook features some of the most beloved recipes from this Miami institution, including fried yuca, vaca frita (shredded beef with onions), lechón asado (roast pork), ropa vieja (shredded beef in tomato sauce), guava pie, and, of course, the one, the only, the original Cuban sandwich. The simplicity of Cuban cuisine makes it surprisingly easy to prepare these bold and savory dishes for which the restaurant is renowned. Ask the die-hard patrons of Versailles why it is their favorite restaurant for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even a post-party snack at 2 a.m., and they'll tell you they keep coming back for the tortilla (potato omelet), the plantain chips with mojo, the croquettes, the moros (mixed black beans and rice), and the rabo encendido (oxtail stew). These flavorful recipes have been passed down through the Valls family for generations; they are the traditional dishes abuela used to make. Versailles is indeed more than just a celebrated restaurant. For many it is a home away from home--a place where people from all backgrounds congregate to enjoy great food while discussing work, politics, and daily life. This amazing cookbook helps amateur chefs everywhere re-create that same warm feeling right at their own dinner tables.

Restaurant Diet Plan The ultimate guide for people who want to dine out guilt-free! The Restaurant Diet, offers a diet plan that takes the pressure off of dieters who love to eat out. In The Restaurant Diet, author Fred Bollaci, who lost 150 pounds (from 330): • Teaches readers how to read a menu • Explains how to ask important questions of the restaurant staff • Gives guidance on how to have food customized to your dietary needs • Provides insights into converting this into healthy eating at home Eat out to your heart's content and not be overweight: As Fred teaches readers how to eat out and lose weight, he reveals the real secret: It’s not about preparing “clean” food at home, or going “whole” and excluding wheat, sugar, and dairy. Nor is it about counting calories or grams. It’s about WHY one overeats in the first place. Fred reveals his story of growing up in an Italian family, and how his parents’ divorce led to his eating compulsions. He tried every fad diet, but Fred was searching for a lasting solution. With the help of his doctor, a nutritionist, a trainer, and a psychologist, he was able to devise a four-phase diet and exercise plan. Fred proves that if he can do it, anyone can. He has kept the weight off for six years, running four marathons — he looks great, feels great, and can enjoy great food and drink wherever he is. Guilt-free restaurant dining: Featuring recipes from America’s most noted restaurant chefs, as well as original recipes from Fred’s own kitchen, The Restaurant Diet is for the 19 million Americans who love to eat out on a regular basis — and the 38% who are overweight.

Eco-mindfulness How to combine environmentalism and spirituality to attain a state of eco-mindfulness and sustainable living What can you do for the environment? Do you find yourself wondering what on Earth you can do about the very serious environmental challenges we face on our planet today? Do you worry there’s nothing any one person can do that will make a difference? Most people say that they would like to do something to make the world a better place, but they just don’t believe they have the time, energy, money or power to do anything that will make a real difference. Are you willing to devote 20 minutes a week to find out? Environmental activist Cheryl Leutjen has the planet’s back and is betting you do too. Her powerful book of inspired ideas and eco-mindfulness calls upon us all to Love Earth Now. Conservation and sustainable living: Love Earth Now invites us to explore our own thoughts, feelings and to check in with internal guidance about the waste and negative environment impacts we see on a daily basis. While most of us can’t stop the Arctic icepack from melting, we can decide to make better choices like less packaging with our purchases, walking more and driving less, planting organic veggies in the front yard instead of a water-wasting lawn, and even going as green as possible at work and at home. Does your office lack a recycling and composting program? Do the research and start one yourself! Each chapter concludes with a “Diving In” section, a simple and immediate exercise, much like a guided meditation, to prompt us toward out own sustainable solutions. Practice Eco-mindfulness: Eco-mindfulness moments provide the opportunity to reflect and discover that one thing we can do to make a difference today and for all our tomorrows. Author Cheryl Leutjen’s book of planetary self-help and eco-mindfulness is a deeply thoughtful and lucid look at the state of our “big blue marble,” our beautiful earth. It's also a sourcebook of direct actions ─ large and small ─ we can all take to ensure our children and their children’s children have a healthy future on this planet. Drawing from her experiences as an engineering geologist, environmental law attorney, small shop owner, and mindfulness practitioner, Cheryl also reminds us about the importance of simplicity. She points out how all our possessions and the constant shopping are no better for us than they are for the planet itself. They contribute to landfills and create a tech-tethered society that is increasingly isolated. Both helpful and hopeful, Love Earth Now is brimming with creative suggestions we can all try that will get us closer to a sustainable lifestyle, one day at a time. What You’ll Learn Inside: • Discover your own path to living more earth-conscientiously • How to practice mindfulness exercises to help you discover your own eco-mindfulness • Discover what you have the time, talents and resources to do to care for Earth • Practice ways to process the news of extinctions, changing climate and environmental devastations in the world • Discover how to demonstrate your commitment to a more verdant, healthy, peaceful planet without making yourself crazy

This volume is a unique contribution to Latin American studies because it underscores the essential role that women have played in the arenas of modern and contemporary art. This book] provides valuable and much-needed assistance to the researcher. (From the foreword by Elizabeth Ferrer) With more than 1,500 references on nearly 800 women "Latin American Women Artists, Kahlo and Look Who Else" pays tribute to the rich and multifaceted artistic accomplishments of women in and from 20th-century Latin America. Frida Kahlo has until recently dominated the interest of scholars, curators, and the public to the point of almost eclipsing the achievements of other artists from the region. This selectively annotated bibliography begins systematically to identify other women -- painters, sculptors, printmakers, photographers, performance artists, and others -- who have made significant contributions to the history of art in the region. The first section, the main part of the work, consists of individual artists grouped in an alphabetical country arrangement. Artists in each country are listed A-Z, as are the citations about them. Annotations are descriptive and highlight, among other details, the presence of biographical and professional development information in the analyzed materials. A section of general works arranged by country follows, consisting principally of periodical and monographic literature that deals with numerous women, and a listing of the women mentioned in the cited materials. The volume has two appendices. The first is an analyzed list of 77 collective exhibitions in which works by these women have been presented. The second appendix groups the artists by country, allowing for an in-brief look at all of the artists identified in the bibliography. The name index references artists to the main section by country code and also includes entries for authors, curators, and exhibition catalogue essayists.

Healthy cooking cookbook designed for kids: What’s most evident in this book is Remmi’s passion for cooking. What’s most appealing is her genuine writing style and ability to relate to other teens. In the section about Lebanon, Remmi includes a recipe for Rice Pilaf and comments: “This dish is heavenly. It has both rice and pasta in it—two of my favorites.” Remmi’s recipes include a lot of vegetables and she uses fruits to add natural sweetness while going light on spices to make the dishes more appealing to children and teens.

An unprecedented tour of stunning and architecturally significant Cuban palacios, mansions, and private homes that have been meticulously preserved, previously un-photographed, and inaccessible to visitors. At a time when more travelers are rediscovering Cuba, this lavishly illustrated volume offers a different view of the island's cultural achievements. It presents not the Cuba of Castro's era, with its derelict buildings and peeling paint, but the opulent world of the Spanish Creole aristocracy of the colonial period, with its Mudejar craftsmanship and baroque palacios, the sugarcane plantations (ingenios) and coffee plantations (cafetales), and classically inspired grand mansions. Exceptional preservation work has kept these villas in the magnificent state in which they were first envisioned. The photographs, shot exclusively for this book, show examples in each area of the island-from the interiors and exteriors in Havana, Santiago de Cuba, Santa Clara, Cienfuegos, and Pinar del Rio to close-up details of courtyards, balconies, galleries, balustrades, grilles, and louvered doors in Trinidad, Matanzas, and Holguin. One featured home is Finca Vigia ("Lookout House"), the former residence of Ernest Hemingway.
