Every day at 5.20pm the staff at elBulli stop what they are doing, clear down their work surfaces and cover them with tablecloths, bring in chairs and sit down to eat a three-course dinner together in the kitchen. This is known at elBulli as the 'family meal', and it consists of homely dishes such as guacamole with nachos, Waldorf salad, fish soup, grilled sardines with garlic and parsley, or baked apples. Each day a different member of the kitchen team prepares the meal, and it's an important moment of the day, when the team can pause, take stock and prepare themselves for the pressures of the evening service. The family meal is very important to Ferran, so much so that he prepares the daily menus and recipes for it a whole year in advance. Now, for the first time, Ferran is making his recipes available to all home cooks in The Family Meal. With simple, step-by-step instructions, and all the know-how that results from more than two decades in the world's most innovative kitchen, he shows how to prepare tasty, everyday food with 31 nutritionally balanced daily menus, each one consisting of three courses, with a total of 93 recipes. Anyone can prepare his simple, everyday recipes, which are carefully designed to provide nutritious, tasty and economical meals for large numbers. Generously illustrated with specially commissioned photographs of the dishes, preparation, the kitchen and the chefs, The Family Meal is both a practical collection of simple, delicious recipes and an insight into one of the most important rituals at the world's most innovative restaurant.

The Swahili World Book Description :

The Swahili World presents the fascinating story of a major world civilization, exploring the archaeology, history, linguistics, and anthropology of the Indian Ocean coast of Africa. It covers a 1,500-year sweep of history, from the first settlement of the coast to the complex urban tradition found there today. Swahili towns contain monumental palaces, tombs, and mosques, set among more humble houses; they were home to fishers, farmers, traders, and specialists of many kinds. The towns have been Muslim since perhaps the eighth century CE, participating in international networks connecting people around the Indian Ocean rim and beyond. Successive colonial regimes have helped shape modern Swahili society, which has incorporated such influences into the region’s long-standing cosmopolitan tradition. This is the first volume to explore the Swahili in chronological perspective. Each chapter offers a unique wealth of detail on an aspect of the region’s past, written by the leading scholars on the subject. The result is a book that allows both specialist and non-specialist readers to explore the diversity of the Swahili tradition, how Swahili society has changed over time, as well as how our understandings of the region have shifted since Swahili studies first began. Scholars of the African continent will find the most nuanced and detailed consideration of Swahili culture, language and history ever produced. For readers unfamiliar with the region or the people involved, the chapters here provide an ideal introduction to a new and wonderful geography, at the interface of Africa and the Indian Ocean world, and among a people whose culture remains one of Africa’s most distinctive achievements.

The Palgrave Handbook of Race and the Arts in Education Book Description :

The Palgrave Handbook of Race and the Arts in Education is the first edited volume to examine how race operates in and through the arts in education. Until now, no single source has brought together such an expansive and interdisciplinary collection in exploration of the ways in which music, visual art, theater, dance, and popular culture intertwine with racist ideologies and race-making. Drawing on Critical Race Theory, contributing authors bring an international perspective to questions of racism and anti-racist interventions in the arts in education. The book’s introduction provides a guiding framework for understanding the arts as white property in schools, museums, and informal education spaces. Each section is organized thematically around historical, discursive, empirical, and personal dimensions of the arts in education. This handbook is essential reading for students, educators, artists, and researchers across the fields of visual and performing arts education, educational foundations, multicultural education, and curriculum and instruction.

The High Heavens are healing after the fall of the Prime Evil. The Angiris Council has recovered the Black Soulstone and now stands vigil over the cursed artifact deep within the glimmering Silver City. Amid these momentous events, Tyrael struggles with his position as the new Aspect of Wisdom, feeling out of place as a mortal among his angelic brethren and doubting his ability to fully embody his role. As he searches within himself and the Heavens for reassurance, he senses the Black Soulstone's grim influence on his home. Where harmony of light and sound once reigned, a mounting discord is threatening to shroud the realm in darkness. Imperius and the other archangels vehemently oppose moving or destroying the crystal, leading Tyrael to put Heaven’s fate in the hands of humankind... Drawing powerful humans to his side from the far ends of Sanctuary, Tyrael reforges the ancient Horadrim and charges the order with an impossible task: to steal the Soulstone from the heart of Heaven. Among the champions entrustedwith this burden are Jacob of Staalbreak, former avatar of Justice and guardian of the angelic blade El'druin; Shanar, a wizard with phenomenal powers; Mikulov, a lithe and reverent monk; Gynvir, a fearless and battle-hardened barbarian; and Zayl, a mysterious necromancer. With time and the forces of both good and evil against them, can these heroes unite as one and complete their perilous mission before Heaven falls to ruin?

Tickets evolution Book Description :

There is no time for boredom at the restaurant Tickets, where engagement and good company are the order of the day. Indeed, fun has been the key ingredient in the restaurant’s cuisine since Albert Adrià opened its doors in 2011 with the Iglesias brothers, Pedro, Borja and Juan Carlos. It has become a benchmark for Barcelona’s restaurant scene ever since and its recipes have clearly evolved, though without losing any of their freshness or magic. Today the dishes at Tickets have fully transcended the concept of the tapa. So, this is not a tapas book! Albert Adrià invites us once again to walk through the doors of Tickets, where diners become actors in a film, performers in a vaudeville variety show or in a chorus line. Strawberry tree with elderflower and kimchi, Porex with Kalix caviar, Prawns in frozen salt, Saffron sponge with bread soup, Cannibal chicken with cassava bone and the oyster dishes, like Grilled oyster with black chanterelle tea, are just a sample of the nearly 100 recipes disclosed in this book.

Value Based and Intelligent Asset Management Book Description :

The fundamental motivation of this book is to contribute to the future advancement of Asset Management in the context of industrial plants and infrastructures. The book aims to foster a future perspective that takes advantage of value-based and intelligent asset management in order to make a step forward with respect to the evolution observed nowadays. Indeed, the current understanding of asset management is primarily supported by well-known standards. Nonetheless, asset management is still a young discipline and the knowledge developed by industry and academia is not set in stone yet. Furthermore, current trends in new organizational concepts and technologies lead to an evolutionary path in the field. Therefore, this book aims to discuss this evolutionary path, starting first of all from the consolidated theory, then moving forward to discuss: • The strategic understanding of value-based asset management in a company; • An operational definition of value, as a concept on the background of value-based asset management; • The identification of intelligent asset management, with the aim to frame a set of “tools” recommended to support the asset-related decision-making process over the asset lifecycle; • The emergence of new technologies such as cyber physical systems and digital twins, and the implications of this on asset management.
