Bestselling author, TV host, and chef Anthony Bourdain reveals the hearty, delicious recipes of Les Halles, the classic New York City French bistro where he got his start. Before stunning the world with his bestselling Kitchen Confidential, Anthony Bourdain, host of the celebrated TV shows Parts Unknown and No Reservations, spent years serving some of the best French brasserie food in New York. With its no-nonsense, down-to-earth atmosphere, Les Halles matched Bourdain's style perfectly: a restaurant where you can dress down, talk loudly, drink a little too much wine, and have a good time with friends. Now, Bourdain brings you his Les Halles Cookbook, a cookbook like no other: candid, funny, audacious, full of his signature charm and bravado. Bourdain teaches you everything you need to know to prepare classic French bistro fare. While you're being guided, in simple steps, through recipes like roasted veal short ribs and steak frites, escargots aux noix and foie gras au pruneaux, you'll feel like he's in the kitchen beside you-reeling off a few insults when you've scorched the sauce, and then patting you on the back for finally getting the steak tartare right. As practical as it is entertaining, Anthony Bourdain's Les Halles Cookbook is a can't-miss treat for cookbook lovers, aspiring chefs, and Bourdain fans everywhere.

Reticulate Evolution and Humans is the first book to describe the effect of genetic exchange on the origin and evolution of our own species as well as those species with which we have and continue to interact closely, both evolutionarily and culturally. After demonstrating how genetic exchange has affected H. sapiens, the book goes on to describe how the same processes have structured the evolution of organisms on which the human species depends for shelter, sustenance and companionship. It also considers the "dark-side ̈of gene transfer as it pertains to the evolution and adaptation of human disease vectors and diseases. The development of the central thesis of this book - that reticulate evolution via introgressive hybridization and lateral gene transfer has been a pervasive factor in the evolution and cultural development of H. sapiens, its ancestors, sister taxa and associated organisms - reveals the extent of these processes across the widest of taxonomic, temporal and spatial bounds. We cannot escape the conclusion that we are constantly fed, entertained, sheltered, attacked and killed by organisms that possess mosaic genomes reflective of widespread genetic exchange during evolutionary diversification.

ABOUT THE BOOK No Reservations: Around the World on an Empty Stomach is based off the content and experiences of Anthony Bourdain during filmings of the widely popular Travel Channel show, No Reservations. Anthony Bourdain, the host of the show, travels the world, showcasing foods ranging from late night street food, to a meal cooked by a Maharana. Not intending for this book to be some cynical, cheap-ass companion book to the series, Bourdain includes photos that were taken along the way mostly by the shows production assistants. Although this book does complement the show, and gives a more in-depth view of many favorite episodes, it could also stand on its own as a photographic travelogue. As Bourdain says in the introduction, the books photos try to give viewers a brief taste, a sense of what [they] felt during the relatively short time [they] were there, instead of doing a best of, or, even worse, attempting to create a comprehensive view of the place. MEET THE AUTHOR Nicole Bemboom is a San Francisco based writer. In addition to writing for the exciting new publisher Hyperink, she covers the best of modern craft and design for the online magazine Handful of Salt. She received her BA in Modern Literature from the University of California, Santa Cruz. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Anthony Bourdains No Reservations follows his team as they travel the world making the show. Frequently travelling with Bourdain are Tracey Gudwin (field producer), Todd Liebler (cameraman), and Diane Schutz and Rennik Soholt (assistant producers). The crew took photos throughout in almost thirty countries, meeting an incredible diversity of people and eating an insane variety of foods. Bourdain hopes these photos, along with the show, will reveal a real sense of the places they see the smells and the sounds, as well as the visual elements. The cast allows the country and the circumstances (and misadventures) of their travels to drive the content and style of the show. They often also heavily use the cinema of the country they visit. To begin this journey around the world, Bourdain declares that deep inside every great cook... anyone who knows what the good stuff is and what to do with itlurks the heart and soul of a Chinese guy. Generally considered to have one of the greatest cuisines in the world, China serves as Bourdains go-to locale.
