Presenting a Meal Planning Cookbook Like No Other Cookbook in the World **BONUS Link inside: For a Limited Time Only: The Ultimate Guide to Cooking Rice the Indian Way Available at NO COST (value $6.99 otherwise) if you purchase this book** From the popular website www.cookinginajiffy.com and the author of four Amazon Bestseller cookbooks comes a cookbook that doesn’t focus on recipes. Instead, it shares the secret of creating a FULL MEAL PLAN in around 30 minutes. How can be meals made simple? With just Proper Sequencing and Parallel Processing of your actions, is author Prasenjeet Kumar’s answer. ˃˃˃ Applying the technique of sequencing to cooking would mean that.... Once you have decided what you would like to cook, you should gather all ingredients and wash, dry, chop, or blend them in the order they would be required in the recipe. French call this mise en place or putting it in place. You certainly can’t practice any cooking in a JIFFY without internalizing this first principle of intelligent cooking. ˃˃˃ Parallel processing is the art of juggling two or most tasks at the same time without hopefully affecting the quality of any. In meal planning diets, this would mean that while you put one dish to cook, you start chopping, blending or whatever for the next dish and so on. Needless to say, this little planning in advance can reduce both the cooking and preparation time considerably and enable you to prepare a full 3-4 course meal literally in a JIFFY. ˃˃˃ So if till now you didn’t know (or hadn’t thought about) as to how with proper sequencing and parallel processing you can reduce your drudgery by many, many folds, you have come absolutely to the right place. ˃˃˃ The Concept of Full Meal Planner and Parallel Processing This book is a humble attempt to let you experiment with this idea of SEQUENCING AND PARALLEL PROCESSING. In that background, the Book presents around 40 dishes grouped into 10 FULL MEALS consisting of: two “concepts” of breakfasts, four Indian meals, one Thai meal, one Japanese meal, and two Western meals. All are 3-4 course meals and all can be completed in less than 30-minutes. The examples given are, of course, only suggestive. Once you get the hang of the “philosophy” the author is talking about, you can come up with any number of your own permutations and combinations. Like the concept? Then just scroll up and add this or any of the other books of Prasenjeet Kumar to your cart.

The Elephanta Suite
Author: Paul Theroux
Publisher: Emblem Editions
A master of the travel narrative gives us three intertwined novellas of Westerners transformed by their sojourns in India. This startling and satisfying book captures the tumult, ambition, hardship, and serenity that mark today’s India. Paul Theroux’s characters risk venturing far beyond the subcontinent’s well-worn paths to discover woe or truth or peace. A middle-aged couple on vacation veers heedlessly from idyll to chaos. A buttoned-up Boston lawyer finds succour in Mumbai’s reeking slums. And a young woman befriends an elephant in Bangalore. In these pages, we also meet Indian characters as singular as they are indicative of the country’s subtle ironies: an executive who yearns to become a holy beggar, an earnest young striver whose personality is rewired by acquiring an American accent, a miracle-working guru, and more. As ever, Theroux’s portraits of people and places explode stereotypes to exhilarating effect. The Elephanta Suite urges us toward a fresh, compelling, and often inspiring notion of what India is, and what it can do to those who try to lose — or find — themselves there. From the Hardcover edition.

Publisher: Minotaur Books
Arnaldur Indridason, whom The Sunday Times calls "one of the most brilliant crime writers of his generation," has thrilled readers around the world with his series set in Reykjavik. In Black Skies, Indridason further cements his position as one of today's top international crime writers. A man is making a crude leather mask with an iron spike fixed in the middle of the forehead. It is a "death mask," once used by Icelandic farmers to slaughter calves, and he has revenge in mind. Meanwhile, a school reunion has left Inspector Erlendur's colleague Sigurdur Óli unhappy with life in the police force. While Iceland is enjoying an economic boom, Óli's relationship is on the rocks and soon even his position in the department is compromised. When a favor to a friend goes wrong and a woman dies before his eyes, Oli has a murder investigation on his hands. From the villas of Reykjavík's banking elite to a sordid basement flat, Black Skies is a superb story of greed, pride, and murder from one of Europe's most successful crime writers. "A sophisticated and complex thriller." --Kirkus
Author: Mordecai Richler
Charged with comic energy and a steely disregard for any pieties whatsoever, Barney's Version is a major Richler novel, the most personal and feeling book of a long and distinguished career. Told in the first person, it gives us the life (and what a life!) of Barney Panofsky--whose trashy TV company, Totally Useless Productions, has made him a small fortune; whose three wives include a martyred feminist icon, a quintessential JCP (Jewish-Canadian Princess), and the incomparable Miriam, the perfect wife, lover, and mother--alas, now married to another man; who recalls with nostalgia and pain his young manhood in the Paris of the early fifties, and his lifelong passion for wine, women, and the Montreal Canadiens; who either did or didn't murder his best friend, Boogie, after discovering him in bed with The Second Mrs. Panofsky; whose satirical eye for the idiocies of today's Quebec separatists (as well as for every other kind of political correctness) manages to offend his entire acquaintanceship (and will soon be offending readers everywhere); and whose memory--though not his bile--is, in his sixty-seventh year, definitely slipping . . .

In the tradition of On Beauty, On Ugliness and The Infinity of Lists, Umberto Eco presents an enthralling and erudite illustrated tour of the fabled places that have awed and eluded us through the ages. From the epic poems of Homer to contemporary science fiction, from the Holy Scriptures to modern mythology and fairy tale, literature and art are full of illusory places we have at some time believed are real, and onto which we have projected our dreams, ideals and fears. Umberto Eco leads us on an illuminating journey through these legendary lands - Atlantis, Thule and Hyperborea, the Earth's interior and the Land of Cockaigne - and explores utopias and dystopias where our imagination can confront concepts that are too incredible, or too challenging, for our limited real world. In The Book of Legendary Lands the author's text is accompanied by several hundred carefully assembled works of art and literature; the result is a beautifully illustrated volume with broad and enduring appeal.
