Klapp-Stullen - Max Faber

Klapp-Stullen

Max Faber
Die Deutschen und ihr Brot - eine Liebe, der ganz besonderen Art. Wie innig das Band zwischen Brot-Connaisseur und der mindestens Mehrkorn- bis Vollkorn-Stulle tatsächlich ist, wird jenem schmerzlich bewusst, wenn er sich für einen längeren Zeitraum in eine Mono-Weissbrot-Kultur begibt. Und nun also das passende Buch zum Brot: Klapp-Stullen. Mit Max Fabers einzigartigem Kunstband/Kochbuch/Enzyklopädie bekommt die Stulle, nun endlich den Tribut gezollt, den sie verdient. Seite für Seite und Scheibe für Scheibe seziert und analysiert der gelernte Koch und Food-Stylist das Kulturgut gekonnt mithilfe eines Scanners. Die daraus entstandenen hochauflösenden Bilder rücken die Stulle nicht nur in ein neues Licht, sondern zeigen sie in all ihren Facetten, ihren zahlreichen Varianten und ihren eigentümlichen Verwandtschaftsverhältnissen wie etwa das Toast, Ciabatta oder Baguette. Dazu gibt es die wichtigsten Fakten vorab wie z.B., dass die 'Stullenpakete' im Mittelalter dazu dienten, dass die Jäger keine fettigen Hände beim Essen bekamen. Alles in allem stimmt es wohl, wie Faber wissend zu bedenken gibt: "Die Deutschen und ihr Brot, das ist eine ernste Sache" - aber das Buch beweist auch, dass die Deutschen sich durchaus manchmal auch selbst auf's Korn nehmen können.

Apartamento Cookbook Launch and Signing

Apartamento Cookbook Launch and Signing

Friday, November 9, at 7 pm
Apartamento Magazine and do you read me?!, together with German artist Stefan Marx, warmly invite you to join us in celebrating the release of Apartamento’s latest cookbook on Friday, November 9, at 7 pm. Since 2016, Apartamento has invited the world’s best chefs, food lovers, and culinary taste makers to contribute to a series of annual cookbooks. Each edition is based around a specific theme, and this year the book provides a fresh take on a global staple: the humble grain of rice. Stefan Marx has accompanied each of the 16 recipes with his weirdly adorable drawings. Come around, hang out and grab your signed copy by artist Stefan Marx. Apartamento will be donating 20% of all profits made from sales of the book to a local charity in Barcelona, so the evening will also be in support of a good cause. We look forward to seeing you there! Buy
Penguin Modern Poets #2

Penguin Modern Poets #2

Michael Robbins, Patricia Lockwood, Timothy Thornton
First introduced in the early 1960s, the Penguin Modern Poets was relaunched last summer with a new series aiming for the same goal: ‘to introduce contemporary poetry to the general reader.’ Each of the series’s volumes exhibits the work of three remarkable poets who are currently writing. The series follows a shared rationale where the poets’ work in every issue is interconnected. So for example the first volume by Emily Berry, Anne Carson and Sophie Collins is about female experience in the present, and all the way back to ancient Greece. Whereas in the second issue it is the humorous style which distinguishes the writing of the three poets...etc. With six volumes issued to date, and a new volume coming up every three months, the series is potentially unlimited.
