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.

F - Food Culture #1 Salt

F Magazine

Food x Culture - A Food Documentary Magazine
It's definitely a match! Most likely when paper meets food you're holding a cookbook or a restaurant guide in your hands. That this delicious encounter can turn out differently without being less tasteful proves the F Magazine. The Food Documentary Magazine from Korea is definitely one of a kind. No wonder since this magazine originated from a long-time, inspiring friendship between Magazine B and Baemin. While Magazine B is famously known for telling multi-layered stories behind well-known brands as IKEA, Monocle, Vans, Muji among others Baemin is a critical mover and shaker in South Korean contemporary food culture "bringing good food to anyone and anywhere". Both together result in a fruitful collaboration which will certainly change the way we use and think about our day to day ingredients. The principle is more than simple: Each issue is dedicated to one essential ingredient, so far it is salt, chicken and cheese, entering the multifarious world, the various purposes and histories and the relationship between the people in different stages of the product we use at the end of the line. This nutritional encyclopedia serves as a perfect guidance through the most basic and essential food components featuring various interviews, an academic manual, a geographical overlook and a LAB coming with each Magazine. It's a feast for the eye and we suppose Bongjin Kim's (Baemin) plan worked out saying: "Personally, I'd like to publish a magazine that I would curate for my own personal collection." Believe us, we curate it with full pleasure! Buy

Pipette #1 2018

Pipette #1

The Indie Mag about Natural Wines
Pipette - the world’s first indie magazine dedicated to natural wine and the culture around it. Focused more on capturing the mood of the places it visits, people’s characters and the journey of its writers, and the winemakers or chefs they meet, instead of the usual highly technical details and the notion of wine scoring. Pipette, the French word which means “wine thief”, is the instrument used to pull samples of wine from a barrel for tasting.The first issue brings us stories from different corners of the globe, from Austria where a sister duet makes a name for natural wine, from Toronto where grape witches seem to have put some sort of spell on the local wine scene, from a garage winery in Melbourne, from California, from Paris and from Copenhagen, Pipette offers a proper immersive experience for the wine nerd.

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.
