Jardinière in San Francisco • Single $125; Couple $205 (one book)

      

 

For two decades, Marcus Samuelsson has captivated food lovers with his brilliant culinary interpretations. Born in Ethiopia, raised in Sweden, and trained in European kitchens, he is a world citizen turned American success story. Not only was Samuelsson the youngest chef ever to receive three stars from the New York Times, he is also a five-time James Beard Award recipient, a winner of Top Chef Masters, and a judge on Chopped. Chosen by President Obama to cook the first state dinner, he is now a charismatic TV host.

In Marcus Off Duty, the chef who former President Bill Clinton says "has reinvigorated and reimagined what it means to be American" serves up the dishes he makes at his Harlem home for his wife and friends.

His eclectic, casual food includes dill-spiced salmon; coconut-lime curried chicken; mac, cheese, and greens; chocolate pie spiced with Indian garam masala; and for kids, peanut noodles with slaw. This is an inside glimpse into how one of the world's top chefs cooks in his home kitchen for those nearest and dearest to him.

Marcus Samuelsson is owner of Red Rooster restaurant in Harlem and former Executive Chef and co-owner of New York's Restaurant Aquavit, AQ Cafe at Scandinavia House, and Riingo.

Don Joseph Goewey - The End of Stress

Introduced by Eric Severson, Global Vice President of Human Resources at The GAP

We’re all well informed about the damage stress inflicts on our health, happiness, and efforts to succeed. Yet most of us have given in to it, accepting stress as the new normal. The stress reduction programs we’ve tried simply haven’t worked.

Don’t give in. There’s now a solution.

Neuroscience has discovered that genetics and past traumas wire our brain for stress reactions and that we can rewire those faulty circuits. It’s achieved through a specific shift in mindset.

This shift in mindset switches our brain’s “auto-pilot” from one that launches knee-jerk stress reactions to one that defaults to neural networks that generate the fluid and creative intelligence to reach our goals, together with the emotional and social intelligence that instills more joy in our work, more peace in our day, and more harmony in our relationships.

Making this change is simpler than you’d imagine and happens quickly, within four to eight weeks.
Come and learn how the proven approaches in The End of Stress can help you build a better brain for a better life.

Don Joseph Goewey managed the department of psychiatry at Stanford Medical School, ran a regional emergency medical services system, and for twelve years headed an internationally recognized institute that pioneered an approach to catastrophic life events. He has worked with people facing some of life’s most stressful situations. Don also spent six years directing a think tank that integrated breakthroughs in neuroscience and psychology into a model for ending stress. He now heads ProAttitude, a human performance firm with the mission of ending work stress. He has been on the Today Show, CNN and NPR, and writes a blog for the Huffington Post.

Nicolette Hahn Niman - Defending Beef

In Defending Beef, Nicolette Hahn Niman argues that cattle are not inherently bad for either the Earth or our own nutritional health. In fact, properly managed livestock play an essential role in maintaining grassland ecosystems by functioning as surrogates for herds of wild ruminants that once covered the globe. Hahn Niman argues that dispersed, grass-fed, small-scale farms can and should become the basis for American food production, replacing the factory farms that harm animals and the environment.

The author—a longtime vegetarian—goes on to dispel popular myths about how eating beef is bad for our bodies. She methodically evaluates health claims made against beef, demonstrating that such claims have proven false. She shows how foods from cattle—milk and meat, particularly when raised entirely on grass—are healthful, extremely nutritious, and an irreplaceable part of the world’s food system

Nicolette Hahn Niman is the author of Righteous Porkchop. She previously served as senior attorney for the Waterkeeper Alliance, running their campaign to reform the concentrated production of livestock and poultry. In recent years she has gained a national reputation as an advocate for sustainable food production and improved farm-­animal welfare.
