If there is one thing that could bring world peace then probably Hummus. People may not agree on politics or faith. They might have different opinions and views. But they can all agree on a bowl of Hummus.⁠ With this thought in mind a Palestinian, a Lebanese, and an Israeli who met in Paris set out to a joint utopian journey. On the Hummus Route runs across the streets and alleyways of nine Middle Eastern hummus hubs, from Cairo all the way to Damascus. It is a salute to the humble chickpea and the many ways it is eaten from, of course, hummus to falafel, crackers, soups, casseroles, salads, sauces, and pies, but it is also about humanity and the things that connect us because the love for Hummus transcends place, time, and borders.⁠ Buy...

This cookbook began in 1969 as a notebook that Dorothy Iannone took with her to the many places she and her lover Dieter Roth went, so that she could always cook the food he loved for him. Personal sentences are interspersed between the lists of ingredients, revealing the joys and turbulence of her life and her passionate relationship. So this cookbook is no ordinary cookbook, but a colourful scribble of collected recipes, mixed with notes and drawings. Between the lines of the recipes it tells the story of life and love. It is a perfect example of how Iannone mixes daily life, creativity and thought, culminating in her vision of cooking as an outlet for eroticism and introspection.⁠ Buy...

Antto Melasniemi and Rirkrit Tiravanija do not just have both unusual names but are both artists working with food. So do not mistake this book, the Bastard Cookbook, with an ordinary cookbook. Even though it is full of recipes, photographs of food and chapters carrying unspectacular names like "soup" or "salads", it is far more than a mere collection of dishes. The two food artist challenge our obsession of authenticity and mix up tastes, traditional dishes, and recipes into food "bastards". You can turn your oh-so-familiar family recipes of meatballs with a little bit of curry paste into something very unfamiliar. But if we are honest about globalisation and peoples lives that are not limited to one place and one country anymore, we must agree that the proposed bastards are probably the new reality mix. Instead of being scared that traditional tastes would be lost, we should embrace these "bastards" as an addition, as a more. The future of cooking is definitely eclectic.⁠ Buy...

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.

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...
