It's been a century since the prohibition sent Americans scurrying to speakeasies. And decades since the movie industry turned mobsters into celebrities. Now the two worlds collide in this highly original pocket-sized collection that creates signature cocktails for gangsters of every stripe. There's the "Al Capone," a mixture of rye and Campari that's as charming and dangerous as its namesake. The "Bonnie Parker" adds Chicory Pecan Bitters to the whiskey Bonnie enjoyed when she wasn't lobbing bottles out the window of her getaway car. There's even the Stephanie St Clair, a cocktail with Caribbean rum that's as smooth as she was. Famous characters from much-loved recent tv series including The Sopranos, Peaky Blinders, and Boardwalk Empire are seen alongside iconic roles from classic films such as The Godfather, Goodfellas, Scarface, and Miller's Crossing. These fictional fiends are accompanied by the infamous real- life mobsters they're based on. Each is illustrated by acclaimed comic book artist Shawn McManus. Whether you're a budding mixologist or gearing up to watch The Godfather, this handy book provides the perfect blend of slick recipes and popular culture.

It holds three Michelin stars and in 2013, 2015, 2018 it was named the best restaurant in the world by Restaurant magazine. Jordi Roca is currently one of the world’s most advanced chocolatiers, and was proclaimed best pastry chef in the world in the 2014, 50 Best Awards. This book shows Jordi’s search for the origins of cocoa and his journey to discover how to master chocolate for the creation of new, totally revolutionary desserts. He travels through cocoa fields in Colombia, Peru and Ecuador to meet producers both in the interior of the jungle and in the new areas that produce some of the most prestigious cocoa on the market. He learns about the nature of the so called creole cacao, native to the Amazon rainforest, the characteristics of the crop and the way in which the cocoa cob ends up being transformed into the fermented and dry bean from which we obtain our chocolate. With this background, Jordi returns to his chocolate workshop in Girona and gives a new twist to his creative work, undertaking unique creations with the cocoas that he has collected over the course of his travels through the different countries of Latin America. The book includes 75 recipes, formulas and totally new creative ideas with cocoa as the mainstay of desserts, chocolates and ice cream. A National Geographic documentary on Jordi Roca’s research into the world of cocoa in Latin America is currently being filmed.
