Title: 熱石上的麵包

 

Author: Grégoire Michaud 閔言樂

 

Publisher: 萬里機構

 

Introduction

閔言樂深知讀者很想在家也能烤出真正麵包香,所以他鼓勵讀者在焗爐裏添加可移動的石床(清潔耐熱的磚石),因為只有讓麵糰直接接觸受熱石塊才可獲得麵包脆香的口感和風味。書中介紹了小麥的結構和品種,如何選石和處理後的使用方法,也把麵糰變化和工序以圖像化解說,給予讀者們的簡略完整的製作麵包的概念。全書分為兩大部份,首部份是以原理和技術解說為主;第二部份是麵包製作示範,並以甜包、鹹包和跨世紀麵包三大類,讓讀者們跟隨學習,透過實踐而進一步了解麵包製作的真義。在食譜裏,言樂提供了家庭式和工業用的材料比份,可 說是兼顧了專業與非專業讀者群的需要。這裏除了有詳細製包工序外,也利用烹調ICON簡化閱讀工序流程,更有關鍵製作圖片輔助解說,還提供了賞食的意見,實用又輕鬆地學會製造麵包的技巧。書末附有製作麵包的述語作參考。(Source)

Title: Communication, Digital Media and Everyday Life

 

Author: Tony Chalkley, Mitchell Hobbs, Adam Brown, Toija Cinque, Dr Brad Warren, Mark Finn

 

Publisher: Oxford University Press

 

Introduction:  

Communication, Digital Media and Everyday Life (Second Edition) uses stories to explain the journey from 'new media in communication' to 'digital media is communication' and provide a clear introduction to communication and media theory and practice. For Generations Y and Z, digital media is now embedded into most aspects of daily life and integrated into contemporary communication as much as speaking, reading and writing. This book encourages readers to understand how they use 'new' media to do 'old' things and explores how concepts of communication, digital media and everyday life intersect with one another. The first section part of the book introduces the building blocks of communication; its basic tools, devices and approaches. The second section part takes these ideas and concepts in the first part and applies them to 'new' media: it considers including ideology in film and television; organisational communication; and values in the new digital world; and how identity, privacy, deception and truth have been redefined. The third part section part looks at communication today-including the redefinition of identity, privacy, deception and truth- and explores what it might be like to live in an increasingly digital world.(Source)

 Title: Ice Cream Adventures: More Than 100 Deliciously Different Recipes

 

Author: Stef Ferrari

 

Publisher: Rodale US

 

Introduction:

If Willy Wonka made ice cream instead of chocolate, it would look a lot like the concoctions Stef Ferrari dreams up - twisted, curious, fun, and radically unique. It's these ice creams and other deliciously different treats (such as ice cream cakes, melted ice cream french toast, and cocktail inspired ice cream) that made Hay Rosie craft ice cream company an overnight hit when it opened last summer in Brooklyn's carroll gardens. Fans lined up around the block for her inspired flavours like sage chocolate chip, sriracha popcorn, and indie pale ale. Time Out calls her ice cream "delectably head scratching," and adventurous foodies will love trying out the weird and wonderful, but still incredibly compatible, flavours that Ferrari will teach them how to concoct at home. Ice Cream Adventures will be a fun, illustrated giftable book featuring recipes for ice creams, cookies, toppings, and new ideas for ice cream pairings. Ferrari's theory is that almost everything can be turned into ice cream and ice cream can be turned into anything else. Once readers have a taste of this book, they'll never go back to their regular ice cream.(Source)
