Le Audioricette sono un nuovo modo per scoprire e approfondire la preparazione, le caratteristiche e la storia dei tuoi piatti preferiti. Ogni audiobook contiene la spiegazione passo passo di cinque semplici e gustose ricette per stuzzicare la tua fantasia in cucina, e una ricca e approfondita sezione sulla storia e le caratteristiche dei piatti. Con la diffusione della cucina orientale, nel nostro Paese si è cominciato a sentire parlare sempre di più di utensili legati proprio a questi tipi di gastronomie etniche. La stella più brillante è il wok. Questa grande e pesante padella ha visto le luci della ribalta grazie alla sua duttilità e alla capacità di cuocere i cibi con una precisione e una diffusione del calore senza pari, oltre che con minime quantità di condimento. Grazie all´influenza culturale delle gastronomie orientali, il wok è arrivato non solo nei ristoranti ma anche sulle nostre tavole e nelle nostre cucine. Il wok è una speciale padella utilizzata nella cucina cinese. Ha forma semisferica e in origine era dotata di due manici corti; ora la si trova più facilmente con un solo manico lungo, ma la presenza di un secondo manico la rende più maneggevole. Anche se in molti Paesi orientali, e in Cina soprattutto, il wok è la dotazione standard di tutti i cuochi più o meno professionisti, nel resto del mondo è meno diffuso. Imparare a cucinare con il wok, sfruttandone le particolari caratteristiche di cottura del cibo, può essere un´occasione per mettersi alla prova ai fornelli con qualcosa di nuovo che darà grandi risultati, o anche semplicemente per stupire i propri ospiti con piatti di gran classe, colorati e semplici da preparare. In questo nostro breve viaggio nel mondo del wok, ne esploreremo la cultura e la storia, le tecniche principali e la sua versatilità in cucina. Concluderemo quindi con una serie di cinque ricette create appositamente per la cottura con il wok. 1. Italian.

Donny Herbert was a hardworking Buffalo city firefighter who, in December 1995, was searching the attic of a burning house when the snow-laden roof collapsed. For six minutes he was without oxygen. A beloved husband, a father of four boys, Donny fell into a vegetative state that lasted nearly a decade. He was, for all practical purposes, gone - until one day, in April 2005, when he woke up and spoke almost nonstop to his family and loved ones for nearly 18 hours. Here is the story of this remarkable moment, which was covered by the press worldwide. For his wife, Linda, it was a miracle. For his doctors and nurses, it was a medical mystery. For his sons, including his youngest, with whom he had never before had a conversation, it was a blessing. After his remarkable day, Donny Herbert fell into a deep sleep and never experienced a comparable moment of clarity. He died in February 2006 from pneumonia. Written by Linda´s cousin, The Day Donny Herbert Woke Up makes the listener wonder: What brought Donny back? More than anything, Linda credits Donny himself, a man with the strength to will himself back into his family´s lives, if only to remind them one last time of how very much he loved them. This is as much Linda´s story, one of perseverance and faith, as it is of a remarkable husband, father, and firefighter. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kimberly Farr.

Judy Sheehan´s debut young adult novel is a terrifically fun listen that also tackles some of life´s - and the afterlife´s - big questions. Last night Sarah was a bridesmaid, dressed in a hideous mango chiffon. Today she wakes up dead at the Mall of America. This is where the universe sends teenagers who were murdered. In fact most malls are haunted. The living don´t notice it, what with all the bright lights, sales, and free samples. The dead just pass through them while finishing up the business of their former lives. As Sarah and her fellow dead teenagers work together to move on, she hits just a few complications: Sarah discovers an uncanny ability to haunt the living, and while she has no idea who killed her, she knows the one person she loves back on Earth is in grave (yes, grave) danger. Meanwhile, she´s falling madly and badly for Nick, who died heroically saving his girlfriend. Sarah can´t let these distractions put her at risk of being doomed to relive her final moments again and again. But how can she stop her killer from killing again? 1. Language: English.

Dr. Lyn shares with you her most profound revelations, all of those that have given her strength, comfort and courage. Listening to them can help you also turn your fears into courage. Each week for a year, she will give you thoughts, ideas and calls to action that will give you more power and strength than you can imagine. We are currently living in a world full of terror. All we have to do is turn on the television and there it is. Constant mass killings and threats to our personal safety. There are worldwide religious wars, religious extremist terrorists, ISIS, Jihad, the Taliban, etc. Closer to home, we have drug addicts, car accidents, plane crashes, thieves, school shootings, kidnappings, rapes, murders, riots, identity theft and all forms of criminal behavior. Then we have acts of God, such as earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, fires, tsunamis, deadly viruses, etc. There are more than enough things for us to be afraid of. It is no wonder we are all terrified. What can we do? We could choose to barricade ourselves in our safe room of our gated, locked, security guarded, super-reinforced brick walled homes. But eventually we would need to go out. It is unrealistic to think we could always be protected, even in our own homes. Most people have ineffective coping skills, which only serve to make matters worse rather than better. If we allow fear to control us, we will eventually go insane. We have to find a way to cope with fear in a healthy way if we want to actually live. This book will give you the courage you need to tackle any danger or threat, and live a life of peace and joy. 1.

His wife has betrayed him, his job involves experimental surgeries with strange side effects, and his father is hiding early onset dementia.

Try as he might, Phil can´t remember that night, and so, haunted by the need to know, he mind reads his way through the lab techs at work, adoring fans at Toy Polloi, and anyone else who gets in his way, in an attempt to determine whether he´s capable of such violence. A Little More Human, rife with layers of paranoia and conspiracy, questions how well we really know ourselves, showcasing Fiona Maazel at her tragicomic, freewheeling best. 1. Language: English.

When my husband Oliver died, my life ended. My purpose, my passion, my everything bled out with him on the side of the Pacific Coast Highway. Ollie was an organ donor. His eyes, his brain, his lungs, his heart...parts of my Ollie went out and saved lives. Then his heart, beating in another man´s chest, found its way back to me, and I found myself faced with an impossible choice: hold on to the pain and beauty of the past and the memory of the man I loved, or reach for a bold new future, knowing each heartbeat will be a reminder of all I´ve lost. I wasn´t supposed to live past 30. My grandfather died at 45. Heart failure. My father died at 38 Heart failure. The doctors told me my whole life that I wouldn´t see my 31st birthday. My heart was going to give out. It was just a matter of time: a rare blood type and an unusually large heart meant essentially zero chance of a transplant. I proved them all wrong...by dying on my 31st birthday. And then I woke up, alive, with another man´s heart inside my chest, and his widow on my conscience. I spent my whole life preparing for death, and now I have to learn how to live. Only, as I soon discovered, living is the easy part. Loving, and allowing myself to be loved...well, that´s a whole lot harder. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Summer Roberts, Tyler Donne.
