Wine of plenty Salvador Dal�'s epicurean guidebook Hot on the heels (or lobster claws) of the best-selling Salvador Dal� phenomenon, Les d�ners de Gala, TASCHEN presents the artist's equally surreal and sensual viticulture follow-up: The Wines of Gala. A Dal�nian take on pleasures of the grape and a coveted collectible, the book sets out to organize wines "according to the sensations they create in our very depths." Through eclectic metrics like production method, weight, and color, the book presents wines of the world in such innovative, Dal�esque groupings as "Wines of Frivolity," "Wines of the Impossible," and "Wines of Light." Bursting with imagery, the book features more than 140 illustrations by Dal�. Many of these are appropriated artworks, including various classical nudes, all of them reconstructed with suitably Surrealist, provocative touches, like Jean-Fran�ois Millet's The Angelus, one of Dal�'s favorite points of reference over the decades. Dal� also included what is now considered one of the greatest works from his late "Nuclear Mystic" phase, The Sacrament of the Last Supper (1955), which sets the iconic biblical scene in a translucent dodecahedron-shaped space before a Catalonian coastal landscape. Dal� was by this stage a devout Catholic, simultaneously captivated by science, optical illusion, and the atomic age. The first section is dedicated to "Ten Divine Dal� Wines," an overview of 10 important wine-growing regions, while the second develops Dal�'s revolutionary ordering of wine by emotional experience, instead of by geography or variety. Rather than any prescriptive classification, it's a flamboyant, free-flowing manifesto in favor of taste and feeling, as much a multisensory treat as a full-bodied document of Dal�'s late-stage oeuvre, in which the artist both reflected on formative influences and refined his own cultural legacy. "The modern wine bible we never knew we needed." -- punchdrink.com

Gala dinner: Salvador Dal�'s surrealist cookbook "Les d�ners de Gala is uniquely devoted to the pleasures of taste ... If you are a disciple of one of those calorie-counters who turn the joys of eating into a form of punishment, close this book at once; it is too lively, too aggressive, and far too impertinent for you."--Salvador Dal� Food and surrealism make perfect bedfellows: Sex and lobsters, collage and cannibalism, the meeting of a swan and a toothbrush on a pastry case. The opulent dinner parties thrown by Salvador Dal� (1904-1989) and his wife and muse, Gala (1894-1982) were the stuff of legend. Luckily for us, Dal� published a cookbook in 1973, Les diners de Gala, which reveals some of the sensual, imaginative, and exotic elements that made up their notorious gatherings. This reprint features all 136 recipes over 12 chapters, specially illustrated by Dal�, and organized by meal courses, including aphrodisiacs. The illustrations and recipes are accompanied by Dal�'s extravagant musings on subjects such as dinner conversation: "The jaw is our best tool to grasp philosophical knowledge." All these rich recipes can be cooked at home, although some will require practiced skill and a well-stocked pantry. This is cuisine of the old school, with meals by leading French chefs from such stellar Paris restaurants as Lasserre, La Tour d'Argent, Maxim's, and Le Train Bleu. Good taste, however voluptuous, never goes out of fashion. In making this exceptionally rare book available to a wide audience, TASCHEN brings an artwork, a practical cookbook, and a multisensory adventure to today's kitchens.

Release Date: 1994
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

A classic, prize-winning novel about an epic migration and a lone woman haunted by the past in frontier Waipu. In the 1850s, a group of settlers established a community at Waipu in the northern part of New Zealand. They were led there by a stern preacher, Norman McLeod. The community had followed him from Scotland in 1817 to found a settlement in Nova Scotia, then subsequently to New Zealand via Australia. Their incredible journeys actually happened, and in this winner of the New Zealand Book Awards, Fiona Kidman breathes life and contemporary relevance into the facts by creating a remarkable fictional story of three women entangled in the migrations - Isabella, her daughter Annie and granddaughter Maria. McLeod's harsh leadership meant that anyone who ran counter to him had to live a life of secrets. The 'secrets' encapsulated the spirit of these women in their varied reactions to McLeod's strict edicts and connect the past to the present and future.
