              Nowhere gets a foodie's pulse racing like Bangkok; the Thai capital dazzles with its vibrant cuisine. The product of Chinese, Muslim, Central Thai regional and royal influences, the city's frenzied kitchens have spawned distinctive dishes. Pad Thai, tom yum goong, mee grob, kao m...ok gai, and satay--these are just the tip of the veritable iceberg. Beside these, there are oodles of noodle dishes, tons of different curries, endless ways with seafood and compelling sweets, street food snacks, braises, salads, barbecues, soups, and stir fries. Fragrant, spicy, sweet, and salty; the flavors are a revelation. To make sense of them you need a culinary companion. Bangkok In 12 Dishes is structured around iconic dishes you should try at least once while in town. Miang, ob woon sen, hoy tod, mango sticky rice, and kao ha moo, for starters. Our guide also dives deep into Bangkok's myriad desserts and curries, brings you to the city's best food markets, IDs sensational tropical fruits, takes an overnighter to Ayutthaya, offers food survival hacks for Chatuchak Market, lists all the best bars, and follows a food trail around the city's scenic waterways.

              The Only Gaijin in the Village

              In 2016 Scottish writer Iain Maloney and his Japanese wife Minori moved to a village in rural Japan. This is the story of his attempt to fit in, be accepted and fulfil his duties as a member of the community, despite being the only foreigner in the village. Even after more than a... decade living in Japan and learning the language, life in the countryside was a culture shock. Due to increasing numbers of young people moving to the cities in search of work, there are fewer rural residents under the retirement age - and they have two things in abundance: time and curiosity. Iain's attempts at amateur farming, basic gardening and DIY are conducted under the watchful eye of his neighbours and wife. But curtain twitching is the least of his problems. The threat of potential missile strikes and earthquakes is nothing compared to the venomous snakes, terrifying centipedes and bees the size of small birds that stalk Iain's garden. Told with self-deprecating humour, this memoir gives a fascinating insight into a side of Japan rarely seen and affirms the positive benefits of immigration for the individual and the community. It's not always easy being the only gaijin in the village.

              From the author of the best-selling, widely acclaimed Heat--a new hilariously self-deprecating, highly obsessive account of the author's adventures, this time, in the world of French haute cuisine Bill Buford turns his inimitable attention from Italian cuisine to the food of Fran...ce. Baffled by the language, but convinced that he can master the art of French cooking--or at least get to the bottom of why it is so revered-- he begins what becomes a five-year odyssey by shadowing the esteemed French chef Michel Richard, in Washington, D.C. But when Buford (quickly) realizes that a stage in France is necessary, he goes--this time with his wife and three-year-old twin sons in tow--to Lyon, the gastronomic capital of France. Studying at L'Institut Bocuse, cooking at the storied, Michelin-starred La Mere Brazier, enduring the endless hours and exacting rigeur of the kitchen, Buford becomes a man obsessed--with proving himself on the line, proving that he is worthy of the gastronomic secrets he's learning, proving that French cooking actually derives from (mon dieu!) the Italian. With his signature humor, sense of adventure, and masterly ability to immerse himself--and us--in his surroundings, Bill Buford has written what is sure to be the food-lover's book of the year.
