Since the day I started to cook, it wasn't just the end result that I loved, it was the process.

Harry Bosch crosses the line to team up with Lincoln Lawyer Mickey Haller in the new thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly. Detective Harry Bosch has retired from the LAPD, but his half-brother, defense attorney Mickey Haller, needs his help. A woman has been brutally murdered in her bed and all evidence points to Haller's client, a former gang member turned family man. Though the murder rap seems ironclad, Mickey is sure it's a setup. Bosch doesn't want anything to do with crossing the aisle to work for the defense. He feels it will undo all the good he's done in his thirty years as a homicide cop. But Mickey promises to let the chips fall where they may. If Harry proves that his client did it, under the rules of discovery, they are obliged to turn over the evidence to the prosecution. Though it goes against all his instincts, Bosch reluctantly takes the case. The prosecution's file just has too many holes and he has to find out for himself: if Haller's client didn't do it, then who did? With the secret help of his former LAPD partner Lucy Soto, Harry starts digging. Soon his investigation leads him inside the police department, where he realizes that the killer he's been tracking has also been tracking him. Thrilling, fast-paced, and impossible to put down, The Crossing shows without a shadow of doubt that Connelly is "a master of building suspense" (Wall Street Journal).

Co-founder of the legendary Brother Juniper’s Bakery, author of ten landmark bread books, and distinguished instructor at the world’s largest culinary academy, Peter Reinhart has been a leader in America’s artisanal bread movement for more than thirty years. Never one to be content with yesterday’s baking triumph, however, Peter continues to refine his recipes and techniques in his never-ending quest for extraordinary bread. In this new edition of the award-winning and best-selling The Bread Baker’s Apprentice, Peter shares bread breakthroughs arising from his study in France’s famed boulangeries and the always-enlightening time spent in the culinary college kitchen with his students. Peer over Peter’s shoulder as he learns from Paris’s most esteemed bakers, like Lionel Poilâne and Phillippe Gosselin, whose pain à l’ancienne has revolutionized the art of baguette making. Then stand alongside his students in the kitchen as Peter teaches the classic twelve stages of building bread, his clear instructions accompanied by more than 100 step-by-step photographs. You’ll put newfound knowledge into practice with fifty master formulas for such classic breads as rustic ciabatta, hearty pain de campagne, old-school New York bagels, and the book’s Holy Grail—Peter’s version of the famed pain à l’ancienne, as well as three all-new formulas. En route, Peter distills hard science, advanced techniques, and food history into a remarkably accessible and engaging resource that is as rich and multitextured as the loaves you’ll turn out. In this revised edition, he adds metrics and temperature conversion charts, incorporates comprehensive baker’s percentages into the recipes, and updates methods throughout.

At first, he served only simpleFrench classics but gradually, as is the way of things, the Chef'scuriosity got the better of him and he began thinking up more unusualdishes, such as Snail Porridge and Chocolate Wine. Word spread and reached the ears of the Executives who ran a televisionchannel, and they summoned the Chef to their glass fortress. "Wecommand you to create six Fantastical Feasts," they said. "Thesemust be based on history, but you may draw on fairytales andlegends. We should warn you that the Quest will involve journeysto Transylvania in search of the legendary Leech Recipe of Sibiu, andto the Black Forest to eat the eyes of the Wild Boar ofMünstertal. You must resist the temptations of the BurlesqueGirls, and you must turn chocolate cake into a raging fireball andchicken's testicles into jelly beans. There will be hunting forhallucinogenic mushrooms and cooking with Play-Doh. Out of this,you must create the most magical dishes imaginable." "Well, how about lickable wallpaper, a savoury Zoom lolly, achocolate-covered iceberg, a golden egg and an edible graveyard?"offered the Chef. "It's a start," said the Executives. "Oh, and once you haveachieved the Quest, you must bring us proof, in the form of aBook. But not just any Book. We want tales of extravagantingredients, of revolutionary techniques, of familiar kitchenappliances put to unfamiliar uses. We want to see what yousee. Taste what you taste. In short, we want complete andunparalleled access to your fantastical world."
