In this book, Pierre Franey celebrates American food--the rich lode of fresh produce and the cooking skill, ingenuity and lore that are among our national treasures--and provides us with 200 delectable recipes that are in themselves a celebration. Born in Burgundy and trained as a chef in the great French tradition, Franey has become a true champion of American cooking. We follow him across the country as he searches out local specialties and secrets, talking to all sorts of Americans, from crabbers in Maryland to citrus growers in Florida, from cattle ranchers in Nevada to strawberry and artichoke growers in California. He visits restaurants and their kitchens, from the elegant River Cafe in New York and the vibrant Tra Vigne in the Napa Valley of California to a rustic lechonera in San Juan, Puerto Rico-a pig roasting at the entrance-and the whimsical Cafe Spudnik in Moscow, Idaho. All the while he learns the secrets of the food each region yields up as its bounty for the rest of the nation. With irresistible enthusiasm and an expertise born of decades of experience, Franey conveys how the local American cooks prepare their best dishes . Then- in recipes rangeing from Marinated Brochette of Lamb with Honey and Meadowbrook Muscovy Duck to Strawberries in a Purse-he provides his own interpretations, exhibiting the skills that have become his hallmark: simple, clear steps; the minimum number of ingredients to make a dish work to perfection; cooking insights that can be applied to other dishes as well; and an approach to each dish that cuts down on the time required from beginning to end. This is a fitting tribute to America's extraordinary culinary heritage
Why we do what we do : the dynamics of personal autonomy by Edward L Deci( Book )

9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edward Deci, one of the country's outstanding social psychologists, writing with former New York Times science and health editor Richard Flaste, offers some bad news and some good news: Rewards and punishments do not make workers perform more effectively, or students learn better, or families function more smoothly - that's the bad news. Indeed, it is the deadening of interest and commitment, from too much control, from overreliance on rewards and threats, that keeps people from peak performance

Why we do what we do : understanding self-motivation by Edward L Deci( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" you reward your children for doing their homework, they will usually respond by getting it done. But is this the most effective method of motivation? No, says psychologist Edward L. Deci, who challenges traditional thinking and shows that this method actually works against performance. The best way to motivate people--at school, at work, or at home--is to support their sense of autonomy. Explaining the reasons why a task is important and then allowing as much personal freedom as possible in carrying out the task will stimulate interest and commitment, and is a much more effective approach than the standard system of reward and punishment. We are all inherently interested in the world, argues Deci, so why not nurture that interest in each other? Instead of asking, 'How can I motivate people?' we should be asking, 'How can I create the conditions within which people will motivate themselves?'"--Publisher information
