Aislados : una historia en el mundo de Partials by Dan Wells( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two decades before the events of Partials, the world was locked in a different battle for survival: a global war for the last remaining oil reserves on the planet. It was for the Isolation War that the American government contracted the ParaGen Corporation to manufacture the Partials--our last hope in reclaiming energy independence from China. And it was on these fields of battle that the seeds of humanity's eventual destruction were sown. Isolation takes us back to the front lines of this war, a time when mankind's ambition far outstripped its foresight. Heron, a newly trained Partial soldier who specializes in infiltration, is sent on a mission deep behind enemy lines. What she discovers there has far-reaching implications--not only for the Isolation War, but for Partials and humans alike long after this war is over

Kira Walker has found the cure for RM, but the battle for the survival of humans and Partials is just beginning. Kira has left East Meadow in a desperate search for clues to who she is. That the Partials themselves hold the cure for RM in their blood cannot be a coincidence -- it must be part of a larger plan, a plan that involves Kira, a plan that could save both races. Her companions are Afa Demoux, an unhinged drifter and former employee of ParaGen, and Samm and Heron, the Partials who betrayed her and saved her life, the only ones who know her secret. But can she trust them? Meanwhile, back on Long Island, what's left of humanity is gearing up for war with the Partials, and Marcus knows his only hope is to delay them until Kira returns. But Kira's journey will take her deep into the overgrown wasteland of postapocalyptic America, and Kira and Marcus both will discover that their greatest enemy may be one they didn't even know existed

Siete fuegos : mi cocina argentina by Francis Mallmann( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most genial chef in Argentina shares the essence of his cooking of fires. With passion and authenticity, he displays the recipes and stories that run through his long career as a cook, restaurant owner and television star throughout Latin America. The definitive book on its Argentine cuisine. Francis Mallmann is undoubtedly the most brilliant chef in Argentina. He is also, of course, the most famous, the most original and the most successful, both for his career as a chef and restaurant owner and for the awards he has received. One of them, the Grand Prize of Art and Cooking Science (awarded by the International Academy of Gastronomy of Paris), was awarded in 1996 (for the first time to a non-European chef) by a jury made up of the best chefs of the world. In the last decade he has also become a leading chef in Latin America for his successful television programs, in which he shows a rustic cuisine, in his own way, always outdoors, but with an absolutely original synthesis: the combination of know, refinement and experience that only someone like him, cooked up in the best cuisines of France, can accumulate, along with a search of his own ancestral origins in which fire is the axis, center and obsession of his art. Owner of a unique personality, this authentic poet of the kitchen perfectly combines the word, the landscape, the ingredients, the cooking and the art of good eating and good living. Francis Mallmann now has three restaurants: one in Mendoza, another in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of La Boca, and one more in Garzón, a true personal discovery of a picturesque town of Uruguay, 30 kilometers from the exclusive resort of José Ignacio. The newspapers USA Today and The Times of London have considered them among the ten best in the world. Seven fires. My Argentine cuisine is a complete tour of Mallmann's cuisine. It offers more than a hundred recipes, from a cut of meat threaded in a rod on the fire until grilled king prawns with spaetzle; from beautiful burnt tomatoes to crushed crushed potatoes and delicious scorched oranges, or an incredible slow-cooked dulce de leche pudding; from an open lamb's leg that cooks in a few minutes to no less than ... a whole cow roasting for fourteen hours! Share with your readers the secret to a perfect steak ... always
