by Lois Cloarec Hart, Assorted Flavours Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Assorted Flavours book, Whether you're thirteen or thirty, or past the age when a lady likes to tell, it's an enduring pleasure to enter an ice cream shop and contemplate what to select from the variety of flavours. Some may stick to their tried and true preference; some may pick and choose among established favourites; and some may dare to taste a strange new offering. (Licorice pistachio, anyone?) Whatever a patron's choice, odds are they'll leave the shop with a smile on their face and a satisfied palate. Assorted Flavours offers up a similarly diverse bill of fare, with stories that range from the whimsical Flea and the poignant Grandmother's Cup, to the suspenseful Nine Minutes and bittersweet Lost and Found. Love is the silken thread woven through all these stories, as one woman picks up the pieces of a shattered heart, another gets her comeuppance after an ill-advised wager, and yet another risks all in an uncertain future where a nation's only hope resides in the courage and tenacity of a few. What would you do if you suddenly had an immense and inexplicable power to change the world? Or if you encountered a friendly vampire with a distinct family resemblance and a penchant for matchmaking? Enter the world of Assorted Flavours, and encounter a rich assortment of characters thrown into circumstances where love is often the only lifeline. Make your selection, and savour your choice. Whatever your flavour, satisfaction is assured.

by Judith Levin, Soda And Fizzy Drinks Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Soda And Fizzy Drinks book, An effervescent exploration of the global history and myriad symbolic meanings of carbonated beverages. More than eighty years before the invention of Coca-Cola, sweet carbonated drinks became popular around the world, provoking arguments remarkably similar to those they prompt today. Are they medicinally, morally, culturally, or nutritionally good or bad? Seemingly since their invention, they have been loved—and hated—for being cold or sweet or fizzy or stimulating. Many of their flavors are international: lemon and ginger were more popular than cola until about 1920. Some are local: tarragon in Russia, cucumber in New York, red bean in Japan, and chinotto (exceedingly bitter orange) in Italy. This book looks not only at how something made from water, sugar, and soda became big business, but also how it became deeply important to people—for fizzy drinks’ symbolic meanings are far more complex than the water, gas, and sugar from which they are made.
by Mustafa Bayram, The Future Of Food Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Future Of Food book, The destiny of humans is parallel to the destiny of food. If the latter is available, then the former will also be present. The definition of food today is very different from that of our ancestors, who saw it as a nutritious thing that may obtainable through collecting or planting. However, today, food can be modified genetically and made through molecular synthesis. This book discusses the future of food, and explores the context of novel definitions of food through horizon scanning. It considers the most cutting-edge developments in the food industry, including lab-meat, nano-engineered foods, vertical agriculture, foodomics, and Marsfoods. The book also investigates new food engineering processing techniques, future technologies, and future consumption trends.
