Teachers have a challenging and often difficult job. They need inspiration. Christian inspiration! You're God's Gift to Teachers provides biblical encouragement to teachers. Uniquely, this book is targeted directly at teacher issues, with passages organized in 50 topics from A-Z. While the focus is on the bible verse, the author writes a specific context for teachers for each passage. This helps the reader have a greater understanding of the application, and therefore appeals to not only the "strong Christian" but also the newer Christian or even someone simply "interested" in a Christian perspective.
Topics include Caring, Confidence, Empathy, Faith, Generosity, Helping Hand, Integrity, Laughter, Leadership, Perception, Priorities, Service, Teamwork and many more. A recurring theme is that God has given you the gift of being a teacher. While the teacher is finding encouragement through the passages, they are also to "pay it forward" to their students. A passage on Love from Romans 12:9 states "Don't just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good." Author Marder adds "Loving a student really means never giving up on them and constantly expressing hope. Show them you value the difference between right and wrong, something they can hold onto for their whole life." The topic on Positive Thinking from Philippians 4:8 states "And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise." Marder notes, "So now you know - it's not the self help gurus of the 20th century that came up with the power of positive thinking! In fact, Paul speaks to the issue 2000 years ago. In this letter directed to the Christian church in Philippi, it is noteworthy that he is providing this encouragement from jail (on trumped up charges)! The days for teachers are often long and challenging and it would be easy to get down. Keep you mind on the good things in life to keep your spirits up." There are over 170 pages of topics, and teachers have a place to jot notes, thoughts or prayers, that may be prompted by the reading, about or for students or others. This makes this quality hardback book both a workbook and a resource book for now and the future.
Black Pudding & Foie Gras is Michelin Star chef Andrew Pern’s multi award-winning culinary autobiography. It strikes the perfect balance between showcasing many of his mouth-watering dishes and the heart-warming account of Andrew’s fascinating life around food at The Star Inn in North Yorkshire. Its much more than a cookery book, it tells Andrew’s story, delves deep into his philosophy on food, introduces you to his local suppliers and provides a captivating and humorous insight into the life of a family that run a successful British food institution. By the time you’ve finished the book, its very clear that these are the thoughts of someone who views food and cooking as a way of life, and not just a job. The recipes come divided into sections that reflect the menu as opposed to the ingredients and give you all the knowledge to recreate some of his best loved dishes. Starters include beer-battered Scarborough Woof - a much loved fish from the North Sea coast; butter-roast Sand Hutton Asparagus and pressed Terrine of Yorkshire Gammon. Main courses feature traditionally garnished North Yorkshire Moors Grouse complete with Streaky Bacon, Bread Sauce and homemade Redcurrant Jelly; Charles Ashbridge’s Gloucester Old Spot Suckling Pig with Black Pudding and Cider and Hartlepool-landed Halibut with steamed marsh Samphire. Also on offer are comfort foods such as steamed Steak and Kidney Pudding with Oysters and braised neck of heather-fed Moorland Mutton with Pearl Barley. Puddings again reflect local produce and combine the more modern with the old traditions - think fresh Lemon Tart, Pimms No1 Jelly and rich dark Chocolate and Orange Tart before moving on to Ampleforth Abbey Apple Tarte Tatin, baked Ginger Parkin and steamed Ale Cake. Andrew reflects that puddings were never a strong point, the household much preferring cheese and the section entitled 'Cheese Counter’ gives such delights as grilled Wensleydale Buck Rarebit with Ox Tongue and Lincolnshire Poacher with 'Felixkirk’ Fennel. Cheese is followed by an enticing chapter entitled 'Drinks Cabinet’ featuring recipes for home-made liqueurs such as Rhubarb Schnapps, Damson Vodka and spiced Cider, before you open up the 'Chef\’s Pantry’ and discover the essential stocks and accompaniments needed to complete the recipes. The book’s luxurious, tactile suede cover with embossed title gives way to 400 beautifully designed pages containing stunning photography, both in black and white and colour, by award winning photographers Antonio Olmos and Sam Bailey. There is nothing glossy about this book, it is just a rich reflection on the life and food of one of Britain’s brightest young chefs.

Un piloto de caza de la Segunda República revive la contienda del 36. Ante el reconocimiento actual como el comandante que fue, intenta asimilar que el grado que en otro tiempo le llevó al borde de la muerte, a las cárceles franquistas y a sufrir las humillaciones del Régimen, ahora le permita encontrarse, abiertamente, con algunos de sus compañeros del aire, pilotos de caza republicanos.
Rosa Cano, con mano de poeta, desgrana, desde un punto de vista lúcido y a la vez intimista, un momento crucial de la historia de nuestro país, a golpe de amores, traiciones y ausencias, en esta novela escrita con hachazos de la realidad de aquellos años, que dejaron una huella profunda más allá de las fronteras de España.
