Cooking with Herb: 75 Recipes for the Marley Natural Lifestyle

Cooking with Herb: 75 Recipes for the Marley Natural Lifestyle Lowest new price: $20.20
Lowest used price: $14.25
List price: $30.00
Author: Cedella Marley

Cedella Marley shows how cannabis can be part of a clean, green, healthy life, and shares tips first-time users and marijuana devotees can use to enhance their wellness routines and favorite recipes with a natural “Marley high.”
 
Cooking with Herb is more than a collection of recipes—it’s a lifestyle book reflecting the Marley Natural brand’s holistic clean living philosophy. Wellness guru Cedella Marley, the daughter of famed reggae legend Bob Marley and the face of the premium cannabis brand, grew up in Jamaica with the familiar scent of The Herb and experienced its restorative and spiritual properties firsthand. Today cannabis still plays a role in her wellness regimen, whether it’s in her hemp-based moisturizer or in a soothing morning tea, and in Cooking with Herb, Cedella shows readers how they too can experience the healing benefits of cannabis safely and pleasurably. She guides readers on the questions they should ask at dispensaries, offers insights on today’s more potent weed, demystifies the process behind controlling the dosage of cannabis in edibles, and shares a collection of more than 75 Caribbean-inflected, canna-boosted recipes (along with strategies readers can use to integrate these dishes into their entertaining practices). And because food is only one aspect of Cedella's wellness routine, she also highlights the other ways she uses cannabis, sharing recipes for homemade beauty scrubs and hair treatments—even tips readers can use to elevate their yoga and meditation practices. Filled with practical information, beautiful photography, and Cedella's personal stories about growing up with her famous father, Cooking with Herb will teach readers to use and enjoy cannabis in a manner that’s enlightened, respectful, and responsible.

The Versailles Restaurant Cookbook

The Versailles Restaurant Cookbook Lowest new price: $22.24
Lowest used price: $19.17
List price: $30.00
Author: Ana Quincoces
Brand: Quincoces Ana

“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.

An Embarrassment of Mangoes: A Caribbean Interlude

An Embarrassment of Mangoes: A Caribbean Interlude Lowest new price: $6.56
Lowest used price: $1.81
List price: $15.00
Author: Ann Vanderhoof
Brand: Ann Vanderhoof

Under the Tuscan Sun meets the wide-open sea . . . An Embarrassment of Mangoes is a delicious chronicle of leaving the type-A lifestyle behind -- and discovering the seductive secrets of life in the Caribbean.

Who hasn’t fantasized about chucking the job, saying goodbye to the rat race, and escaping to some exotic destination in search of sun, sand, and a different way of life? Canadians Ann Vanderhoof and her husband, Steve did just that.

In the mid 1990s, they were driven, forty-something professionals who were desperate for a break from their deadline-dominated, career-defined lives. So they quit their jobs, rented out their house, moved onto a 42-foot sailboat called Receta (“recipe,” in Spanish), and set sail for the Caribbean on a two-year voyage of culinary and cultural discovery.

In lavish detail that will have you packing your swimsuit and dashing for the airport, Vanderhoof describes the sun-drenched landscapes, enchanting characters and mouthwatering tastes that season their new lifestyle. Come along for the ride and be seduced by Caribbean rhythms as she and Steve sip rum with their island neighbors, hike lush rain forests, pull their supper out of the sea, and adapt to life on “island time.”

Exchanging business clothes for bare feet, they drop anchor in 16 countries -- 47 individual islands -- where they explore secluded beaches and shop lively local markets. Along the way, Ann records the delectable dishes they encounter -- from cracked conch in the Bahamas to curried lobster in Grenada, from Dominican papaya salsa to classic West Indian rum punch -- and incorporates these enticing recipes into the text so that readers can participate in the adventure.

Almost as good as making the journey itself, An Embarrassment of Mangoes is an intimate account that conjures all the irresistible beauty and bounty from the Bahamas to Trinidad -- and just may compel you to make a rash decision that will land you in paradise.
