Grocery : the buying and selling of food in America by Michael Ruhlman( Book )

5 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michael Ruhlman offers commentary on America's relationship with its food and investigates the overlooked source of so much of it -- the grocery store. In a culture obsessed with food -- how it looks, what it tastes like, where it comes from, what is good for us -- there are often more questions than answers. Ruhlman proposes that the best practices for consuming wisely could be hiding in plain sight -- in the aisles of your local supermarket. Using the human story of the family-run Midwestern chain Heinen's as an anchor to this journalistic narrative, he dives into the mysterious world of supermarkets and the ways in which we produce, consume, and distribute food. Grocery examines how rapidly supermarkets -- and our food and culture -- have changed since the days of your friendly neighborhood grocer. But rather than waxing nostalgic for the age of mom-and-pop shops, Ruhlman seeks to understand how our food needs have shifted since the mid-twentieth century, and how these needs mirror our cultural ones

Boys themselves : a return to single-sex education by Michael Ruhlman( Book )

3 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though the roots of single-sex schooling extend back to the very origins of education in this country, in this century the institution has been an easy target for criticism - the common perception being that coeducation is obviously better because it's more equal and democratic. By the mid-1980s this logic had become so accepted that most single-sex schools had disappeared, and, in fact, few people cared. For many, that they existed at all at the end of the twentieth

The book of schmaltz : love song to a forgotten fat by Michael Ruhlman( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For culinary expert Michael Ruhlman, the ultimate goal in cooking is flavor, and for certain dishes nothing introduces it half as well as schmaltz. A staple ingredient in traditional Jewish cuisine, schmaltz (or rendered chicken fat), is at risk of disappearing from use due to modern dietary trends and misperceptions about this versatile and flavor-packed ingredient. 'The Book of Schmaltz' acts as a primer on schmaltz, taking a fresh look at traditional dishes like kugel, kishke, and kreplach, and also venturing into contemporary recipes that take advantage of the versatility of this marvelous fat. Potatoes cooked with schmaltz take on a crispness and satisfying flavor that vegetable oil can't produce. Meats and starches have a depth and complexity that set them apart from the same dishes prepared with olive oil or butter."--Publisher description

Wooden boats : in pursuit of the perfect craft at an American boatyard by Michael Ruhlman( Book )

3 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are fewer than 10,000 wooden boats in America but the circulation of WoodenBoat magazine exceeds 100,000. What is it about wooden boats that has captured the popular imagination? With the "lively blend of reportage [and] reflection" (Los Angeles Times), Michael Ruhlman sets off to Martha's Vineyard-the location of a renowned boatyard-to find out. As refined as a Stradivarius and as ruggedly powerful as an ocean vessel, wooden boats and the art of crafting them nearly fell victim to the modern era. Yet as cheap plastic and fiberglass boats proliferated the seas, a handful of craftsmen persevered. Today, the makers of these handmade miracles of curves and wood are highly sought-after artisans and wooden boats have emerged as a magnificent metaphor for the "old and true" in our homogenized, throwaway culture. At the heart of Wooden Boats is Rebecca-a sixty-foot modern pleasure schooner being constructed, with centuries-old techniques, to outlast any other boat today. Ruhlman follows Rebecca's construction and profiles the vivid personalities at work in a boatyard filled with stories of the sea. His exciting chronicle will enthrall not just wooden boat owners but also craftspeople of every stripe, nature enthusiasts, and seafaring and landlocked fans of compelling nonfiction. -- Publisher description
