Putting food and theatre into direct conversation, this volume focuses on how food and theatre have operated for centuries as partners in the performative, symbolic, and literary making of meaning. Through case studies, literary analyses, and performance critiques, contributors examine theatrical work from China, Japan, India, Greece, Italy, France, Germany, England, the United States, Chile, Argentina, and Zimbabwe, addressing work from classical, popular, and contemporary theatre practices. The investigation of uses of food across media and artistic genres is a burgeoning area of scholarly investigation, yet regarding representation and symbolism, literature and film have received more attention than theatre, while performance studies scholars have taken the lead in examining the performative aspects of food events. This collection looks across dramatic genres, historical periods, and cultural contexts, and at food in all of its socio-political, material complexity to examine the particular problems and potentials of invoking and using food in live theatre. The volume considers food as a transhistorical, global phenomenon across theatre genres, addressing the explosion of food studies at the end of the twentieth century that has shown how food is a crucial aspect of cultural identity.

Color is the first and most important design choice a garden designer makes. Over the past decade, landscape architects and garden designers have moved away from the more sedate shades commonly found in traditional gardens and have used plants and hardscape to experiment with explosions of color. From the layered and textural colors of Piet Oudolf to the high contrast colors of Tom Stuart Smith, this increased focus on color is a trademark of today's leading designers. Contemporary Color in the Landscape explores the whole spectrum of color: how we perceive and respond to color, how to design with color, how to manipulate contrast and create intensity with saturation, how to maximize impact by minimizing color, how to find your own personal color combinations, and how color is viewed in nature. In gorgeous, color-drenched photos Andrew Wilson showcases the work of leading garden designers as inspiring examples of the way color is used. Innovative gardens from all over the world help the reader visualize the core color lessons throughout the book. Supported by more than 300 stunning photographs, Contemporary Color in the Landscape integrates cutting-edge designers, their landscapes, color theory, new design ideas, and gorgeous photography into one inspirational, instructional, and must-have guide for design professionals.

The illustrated weekly magazine VU ran over 600 issues between 21 March 1928 and 29 May 1940.

The text explains, the photo proves was the magazines editorial motto. This book gives VU the attention it deserves by liberally reproducing a selection of front covers, pages and spreads from throughout its short but prolific history, together with the commentary and analysis they demand.

Good beer is a taste-intensive and surprisingly versatile accompaniment to good food--often better suited than wine. This book presents rescipes and fundamentals that explore the pairing of food and beer. Until recently, beer had been grossly underestimated as an accompaniment to sophisticated cuisine. But the booming craft beer movement is now sparking a fundamental shift. Diversity in aroma and nuance in flavor make these enw beers a wonderful complement to food--at times even better and more original than wine. The Gourmet's Beer Cookbook shows what an extensive, vibrant, and interesting role beer can play in the dining experience. Aside from an introduction into the culture and flavors of craft beer, this book presents recipes from innovative chefs to create deliciously adventurous food and beer pairings. These include tarte flambee with green asparagus to be served with Flemish red beer and saddle of veal with vanilla carrots and potato medallions to be served with pilsner. Desserts too can be coupled with the right beer for a unique taste experience, as with plum pancakes garnished with wheat beer zabaglione and served with wheat beer itself. Beer is not only for drinking. Used as an ingredient, it can provide dishes with the perfect seasoning. But when a strong companion for a meal is needed, a beer's spices and hoppy character make it an excellent choice. It can work as a harmonious complement to a dish or provide it with a surprising contrast, remaining distinct while not overshadowing any flavors. As an extension to our recent release Barley & Hops, The Gourmet's Beer Cookbook is a book for all who enjoy good food and drink, like to cook, and are enthusiastic about new taste experiences.
