Contemporary food goes way beyond avocado and quinoa salads. Delicious Places presents the new wave of cafés, restaurants and entrepreneurs that are writing a fresh chapter on culinary culture. Food culture has come a long way. New restaurants, bars and cafés are born out of fresh ideas that, with a clever twist, lead to an -unprecedented culinary experience that -balances location and concept--and ultimately influences a new world of food. Delicious Places collects the examples that execute the business idea in the best possible way. Single-dish restaurants, traditional -pasticcerias, fisherman cooperatives with the freshest produce or high-end restaurants in the mountains. They offer a unique experience that starts the moment you set foot in the door and spans from the interiors to the branding, and behind the scenes to the supply chains and sustainable procedures. Take a seat at the table and feast your senses one by one--the mind will follow.

Beautifully illustrated, this book captures the lifestyle of coffee creators and aficionados, as seen through the lens of acclaimed photographer Horst A. Friedrichs. For some, coffee is a means of getting through the morning. For others, it is a way of life. Fascinated by artisanal coffee culture, celebrated photographer Horst A. Friedrichs turns his lens toward every aspect of coffee—from beans to espresso machines, and from baristas to consumers. Stepping inside the world’s best coffee shops, Friedrichs shows just how sophisticated the practice of making coffee has become. Delicious shots of classic drip cones and decades-old Chemex coffee makers are interspersed with images of beakers filled with dark liquid simmering over a flame and brewers extracting the perfect concentrate to be poured over ice. He also captures coffee’s fashion aesthetic—from witty and vintage t-shirts to upscale extracts and felt filters. Nora Manthey’s texts profile the leading minds of the third wave and reveal their transformative craft. As luscious as a freshly poured cup of espresso, this is a delightfully irresistible book that will be at home on any coffee table.

In 2015 Pierre Gagnaire, whose 11 restaurants worldwide boast two and three Michelin stars, was voted ‘Best Chef in the World’ by his peers and 2016 sees him mark 50 dazzlingly creative and successful years in the kitchen. To celebrate this outstanding career Grub Street is delighted to be publishing his new title La Cuisine des 5 Saisons in English. This beautiful book is about his recipes and his work as a chef and for the first time makes his dishes accessible for home cooks. Why is it called Five Seasons? Five seasons because for chef Gagnaire there are five not four seasons; Spring, he says must be divided into two seasons. Thus the recipes in this book follow the rhythm of the seasons and their bounty. In each chapter there are six menus with starter, main dish and dessert. The recipes come from Pierre Gagnaire culinary's repertory and these are the recipes which made him famous. Through the recipes one can see the strong worldwide influence in Pierre Gagnaire's cuisine, cooking with every kind of ingredient. His eponymous restaurant at 6 rue Balzac in Paris (in the 8th arrondissement) specialises in modern French cuisine, and has garnered three Michelin stars. He is an iconoclastic chef at the forefront of the fusion cuisine movement by introducing jarring juxtapositions of flavours, tastes, textures, and ingredients. On his website he gives his mission statement as ‘facing tomorrow but respectful of yesterday’. Gagnaire is also Head Chef of Sketch in London. In 2005 both restaurants were ranked in the S. Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants by industry magazine Restaurant, with Pierre Gagnaire ranking third for three consecutive years (2006, 2007, and 2008). In December 2009, Gagnaire made his United States debut with Twist, a new flagship restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental in Las Vegas, which has since received great critical praise and a Forbes Five-Star Award. He now also has restaurants in Hong Kong, Seoul, Dubai, Tokyo, Berlin, and Moscow.
